Smallville TV Series-Season Eight
Season Eight began a few weeks after the Fortress' icy collapse, as new LuthorCorp executive Tess Mercer investigated Lex's whereabouts. With Lex out of the way, Clark had to face two new foes: Tess Mercer and Davis. Tess proved to be as inscrutable as she is cunning, and became an enigmatic new presence in everyone's lives. It wasn't long before Tess' attention turned to Clark.
This season, Clark Kent moved closer than ever to embracing his destiny as the iconic superhero he will become. Spending less time in his hometown and more time in the big city of Metropolis, Clark came across a multitude of DC characters (including Plastique; the Legion of Super-Heroes; Winslow Schott; Zatanna; and more) as he began his career at the Daily Planet working opposite Lois Lane. With Clark and Lois thrust into such close proximity, sparks began to fly and feelings started to surface that came as a surprise to both of them. At the same time, Clark began to realize the balancing act he must perform as he explored his dual identities as both reporter and superhero. Clark soon discovered he wasn't the only Kryptonian on Earth, as the "Ultimate Destroyer" threatened the human race.
The series, based on DC Comics characters, was developed for television by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and is executive produced by Kelly Souders, Brian Peterson, Todd Slavkin, and Darren Swimmer. Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
