Top 10 Smallville Characters


The Top Ten

1 Lois Lane Lois Lane Lois Lane is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, the character first appeared in Action Comics #1.

Lois Is the best character ever! She can kick butt and look good, while doing it! Her witty personality and the way she doesn't let people walk all over her and her fighting skills are why shes my fave!

Out of all the other Lois Lane incarnations in T.V. and movies this one was the best. She had the attitude, confidence and savvy to do whatever she put her mind to. She may not have had superpowers or a costume but she felt just as important as the heroes on this show. She wasn't a damsel in distress type although she did often get into trouble. But she handled herself well and could kickass when needed. - NerdBunny

Lois lane is by far the best. Shes funny and kicks ass all the way through the show. She is with out doubt the best

Lois lane is by far the best character ever. Shes funny and loyal to everyone around her

2 Clark Kent

Most people think superman is just this perfect person but smallville shows the fact that he isn’t perfect and he has a complex life. People forget that Clark Kent was once a teenager and he had all his secrets but when it came to making a decision he would always make the right one. And also Clark Kent is definitely the best character in smallville his storyline is the most interesting and entreging. And plus the series is about Clark Kent.

This show gives a Clark Kent/Superman that I can actually relate to (somewhat) unlike in the comics. - HyperKnight9X

Well, this is not thinkable, it has to be the big guy... - MatrixGuy

Clark Kent / superman is the best character.

3 Chloe Sullivan

I like chloe she is my favorite in the show. I like how she is very oraganzied. and put's things together. she is the real hero in this show!

Come on, everyone can't just vote for Clark. This show wouldn't have existed without Chloe. Neither would have half the characters. She's saved her own share of lives. - Clark_Kent

A true and loyal friend to Clark. The fact that Allison Mack is very, very cute is a bonus.

Amazing. Journalist kind of gives the show a touch of mystery which makes interesting and shes always on top of things

4 Lex Luthor Lex Luthor Alexander "Lex" Luthor is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

Lex as number one is exactly how it should be. I wouldn't have even bothered with smallville beyond a couple of episodes if it wasn't for him. Which is why I only watched till the end of season 7 and stopped when Michael Rosenbaum left the show and then I watched the finale because Lex came back. Lex is the most interesting character, the psychology, mythology and ambiguous morals behind Lex and how he slowly changed and geared towards the dark path was amazing and heart breaking. I actually wanted him to be saved but we all knew superman needs his enemy. I still think of all the what ifs. Even though his father had the most to do with Lex's turn into evil, still I think clark had a hand in it too even if he didn't mean it. Of course the women who betrayed Lex and tried to kill him for money and all the hate directed towards Lex since he was a child also played a big role. He was such an underdog and he was treated guilty till proven otherwise. I seriously enjoyed his character from ...more

The highlight of the show without a doubt. He was the most interesting character and the way Michael Rosenbaum performed it perfectly was an added bonus. The journey of this character and it's struggles was the best thing Smallville offered.

Most interesting and complex character throughout the entirety of Smallville. He was more than just a villain, thanks to Michael Rosenbaum he was a charismatic and sympathetic character.

Lex had a rough time in the show, if the Kents let him in from the beginning then he may have never become evil.

5 Lana Lang

She is so strong and sweet. She's a hero by choice and greatly responsible for the formation of Clark Kent! Inside and out. Her character is one of perseverance, forgiveness, and redemption. Every mistake she has overcome. She belongs with Clark, but according to the Legion, she will be remembered thousands of years into the future for far more than her romance with Clark. She is humanity at it's best.

Hated her because she was so full of herself. She always wanted to be treated like some prom queen. Always gave clark a torrid regarding honesty bla bla bla. She should have accepted that some people will let you know who you are when they are ready. So different from cloe

She made clark who he is! Shes a good character who has made mistakes which is why you can relate to her! Unlike chloe and clark who always seem to do the right thing! She isn't afraid to get her hands dirty! Yeah she did want honesty from Clark... But everyone wants honesty... Don't hate on her because you might just be like her

She is the worst character on the show. She can't act and wish her character was killed off. She was to whiny

6 Tess Mercer

Love tess. At first shes bad the she becomes good. She kicks ass as well. She should be second. Shame lex had to kill her

7 Kara Kent

She had to find out her home planet was destroyed knowing what it once was

Kara had a potential major part in Smallville as a guide to Clarks Kryptonian past. She may have been a little iriatating but I feel if she was still on she'd win over the hearts of many

8 Lionel Luthor

He wins the most horrible father ever award hands down. But even though he was such a sadistic SOB specially towards his son, I still enjoyed his character.

because he's a goon and he should be ahead of lex because he grips lex all the time

9 Martha Kent Martha Kent
10 Oliver Queen

I like green arrow

The Contenders

11 Jimmy Olsen

Jimmy was the most genuine character on the show. The actor for him was AMAZING. When Jimmy was upset in the show I could feel it!

12 Jonathan Kent

Probably the 3rd best character

13 Brainiac Brainiac Brainiac is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of Superman.

He is totally badass that's it.

Dr. Fine can play with people's minds easily. Should I remind you that he was still a threat in season 8 as he harmed Chloe even though he died in season 7.

James Marsters was a good choice as brainiac

14 Bizarro
