Debuting on October 16, 2001, Smallville had the dubious honour of being the right show at the right time following the tragedy of 9/11. America needed heroes, and The WB network provided with this “no flights, no tights” take on the early years of the world’s greatest superhero.
Since then, young Clark Kent (Tom Welling) faced tornadoes, nuclear missiles, a Kryptonian artificial intelligence representing his long-dead father, Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), Doomsday, General Zod, Major Zod (the same guy, but not really – it’s hard to explain) and a whole lot of heartbreak with his on-again, off-again loves – Lana Lang (Kristen Kreuk) and Lois Lane (Erica Durance).
Then came the big 1-0.
By the time the season clock rolled to double digits, Smallville was all about fan service. Becoming the longest-running science fiction show produced in North America, Smallville threw everything it could into the mix – the Justice Society of America, Green Arrow, Superboy, Supergirl, Brainiac 5, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, Ultraman, Darkseid, a resurrected Lex Luthor and even marriage – capping off an incredible run with what fans had waited ten years to see.
