This is a community created for fans of the Smallville TV series, comic books and rpgs. This a place where we can all dish the dirt on the latest Smallville happenings. If you are unfamiliar with the series read the WB's description below:

Before the legend, before the icon, there was a teenager named Clark Kent (newcomer Tom Welling). Someday, he'll master his powers and understand his true calling. For now, he just has to get through adolescence. This new interpretation of the enduring Superman mythology and its classic characters blends realism and adventure into an exciting action series.

Clark doesn't wear glasses, there's no suit and he can't fly. Not yet, anyway. Between the boy he thought he was and the man he is destined to become are the stories of "Smallville."

Twelve years ago, a meteor shower burst from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, Kansas. The intervening years have left the town's inhabitants with scars and secrets. From the ashes of tragedy, Clark Kent grows into an awkward teen. While adolescence always brings its challenges, Clark's transition from boyhood to adulthood is particularly difficult. He must struggle to come to grips with his emerging superpowers, and the effects of kryptonite, while battling the strange things that have plagued this idyllic Midwest hamlet since the meteor shower.

The guardians of Clark's secret identity are his adoptive parents, Jonathan (John Schneider, "The Dukes of Hazzard," "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman") and Martha Kent (Annette O'Toole, "Superman III," "48 Hrs."). In the aftermath of the meteor shower, they discovered his crashed spacecraft in a cornfield and took him in as their own. As a result, he often feels truly alone in the world, like an outsider looking in. Even his best friends, Pete Ross (Sam Jones III, "Zigzag") and Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack, "Opposite Sex"), are in the dark.

Lana Lang (newcomer Kristin Kreuk) is the untouchable girl next door; the girl Clark worships from afar. Although she feels a strange kinship to Clark, Lana doesn't know much about him, especially that he blames himself for her parents' tragic death in the meteor shower so many years ago. A true beauty and one of the most popular girls in school, Lana dates Smallville's resident heartthrob and high school quarterback, all-around golden boy Whitney Fordman (Eric Johnson, "Legends of the Fall"). Clark's yearning to talk to Lana is complicated by the kryptonite that she wears around her neck. Whenever he gets near her, the green stone causes him to become literally weak in the knees.

Clark forges a remarkable new friendship with Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum, "Sweet November," "Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane"), though neither has an inkling of how their destinies will ultimately collide. Inexplicably bald from exposure to the meteor shower when he was a child, Lex returns to Smallville after college to help turn around the family company's struggling fertilizer plant. After Clark saves Lex's life in a death-defying rescue, the two become friends. Clark looks up to Lex as the big brother he never had, and Lex is surprised that this small-town boy is someone he can actually trust. The ill-fated friendship causes tension in the close-knit Kent family, as Jonathan fears Lex may take after his ruthless tycoon father.

With realistic portrayals and state-of-the-art special effects reinterpreting the Superman mythology from its roots, "Smallville" was written and developed by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar ("Shanghai Noon"), based on the DC Comics characters. Gough and Millar serve as executive producers, along with Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola. David Nutter ("The X-Files," "Roswell") directed the pilot. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Tollin/Robbins Productions. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster.
