Smallville TV Series-Season Eight

Season eight of Smallville, an American television series, began airing on September 18, 2008. The series recounts the early adventures of Kryptonian Clark Kent as he adjusts to life in the fictional town of Smallville, Kansas, during the years before he becomes Superman. The eighth season comprises 22 episodes and concluded its initial airing on May 14, 2009, marking the third season to air on the CW television network. Regular cast members during season eight include Tom Welling, Allison Mack, Erica Durance, Aaron Ashmore, along with new series regulars Cassidy Freeman, Sam Witwer, and Justin Hartley.
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.
