Growing up is tough for any teenager. But it’s ever tougher when you have mysterious super powers you don’t understand and must not reveal to others – powers that keep you from fitting in with the everyday high school world of football, friends and dating.
Teenage anxieties and smalltown secrets give the Superman mythology an exciting new spin in Smallville. Tom Welling plays Clark Kent, the adolescent whose hoped for romance with Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) is frustrated by the kryptonite in her necklace. Michael Rosenbaum is Clark’s self-proclaimed steadfast friend Lex Luthor. Inside the idyllic community of Smallville, the intertwined destinies of these three begin to take shape while an imminent danger emerges: a high school prank has spawned a vengeful villain who has acquired super powers of his own.
