The third series of this spin on Superman lore is marked by Clark Kent's inability to overpower destiny and its pressing call for his return home. Clark, who has left Smallville for Metropolis, returns to Smallville to help his parents, who are desperately trying to save their cash-strapped farm and is happily surprised to find that Lex Luthor has survived a deadly jet crash. Lex and Clark's ill-fated camaraderie is strengthened by this miracle but causes tension in the close-knit Kent family, as Jonathan fears that Lex will emulate Lionel and his unscrupulous ways, even while Lex has tried to establish his own identity. The episodes are: 'Exile (1)'; 'Phoenix (2)'; 'Extinction'; 'Slumber'; 'Perry'; 'Relic'; 'Magnetic'; 'Shattered'; 'Asylum'; 'Whisper'; 'Delete'; 'Hereafter'; 'Velocity'; 'Obsession'; 'Resurrection'; 'Crisis'; 'Legacy'; 'Truth'; 'Memoria'; 'Talisman'; 'Forsaken (1)'; and 'Covenant (2)'.
Clark Kent takes on a whole new dimension in this precursor to the Superman legend. You know how the story ends; now watch the journey unfold. The idyllic town of Smallville, Kansas, never seemed the same after the meteor shower that rained down years ago. That was the day Clark Kent arrived on Earth--and the day strange things started happening in Smallville. Now, Clark is a teenager, and his growing pains are amplified by theburden of his emerging superpowers. KEY TALENT: Tom Welling, Kristen Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum.
