Jeremy Creek (Adrian McMorran)

In 1989, bullies beat him up, stripped him to his underwear and tied him to a pole in a cornfield. The kryptonite meteor shower put him in a coma. Upon awakening in 2001, he went on a rampage before being stopped by Clark.


Greg Arkin (Chad E. Donella)

A former geek who gained proportionate abilities to insects, using them to attack people. He kidnapped and tried to mate with Lana before being stopped by Clark. In Season 10, he reflects on his life and that of Clark's, declaring that Clark inspired him to be a better person.


  • Abusive Parent: His mom.
  • Continuity Nod: His random reappearance and Heel Face Turn in Season 10 is a possible reference to a "Chloe Chronicles" story where some of the bugs from his swarm form are shown to be in the possession of a scientist working on both giving himself powers, and finding a cure for meteor freaks (if not for the powers, then at least the kryptonite psychosis).
  • The Glasses Gotta Go
  • Heel Face Turn: Makes a rather inexplicable one in Season 10.
  • Self-Made Orphan

"Do you know what pharaoh spiders do when they hatch? They eat their mother!"

Coach Walt Arnold (Dan Lauria)

A football coach who was so obsessed with the game that he was willing to do anything to win, including threatening to kill his players if they lost. Upon gaining fire powers, he used them to further his agenda before being stopped by Clark.


Tina Greer (Lizzy Caplan)

A shapeshifting girl who was obsessed with Lana. She is defeated by Clark twice, dying after her second defeat in Season 2.


Sean Kelvin (Michael Coristine)

A guy who gained ice powers, but a craving for heat as a trade-off. He drained the body heat from others to keep himself alive, before being defeated by Clark.


Clark: Mom, get out of here!
Sean: That's your mom!? She's hot!

  • Made of Iron: He takes quite a few hits from Clark, including one with a pipe. The frozen layer on his skin might justify this.
  • Meaningful Name: Kelvin.
  • Monster Misogyny: All his victims are female.
  • Moral Event Horizon: His condition—he'll freeze to death without consuming others' heat—should make him quite sympathetic, but his clear enjoyment of his girlfriend's murder (and his careful selection of Chloe as his next victim) more or less kill any sympathy the audience might have felt for him.
  • Power Incontinence
  • Serial Killer: He could feed off of anyone, but specifically targets attractive girls.
  • Walking Wasteland: His presence alone can reduce a room to an Arctic nightmare.

Cassandra Carver (Jackie Burroughs)

A friendly blind woman who can see people's futures by touching them. She assures Clark that he will make the world a better place. Later, she sees Lex Luthor's future, but it is so horrifying that she dies of shock.


(to Clark) "More than once, I've touched people, and I've seen such pain and despair. But then you were there and the pain was gone. I think that's your destiny: To help people, to save people from fear and darkness."

Jody Melville (Amy Adams)

A girl who used to be fat, until she gained a hyper-accelerated metabolism, along with a craving for flesh in the process. After her defeat, Clark takes her to the hospital, where she can hopefully be cured.


Eric Summers (Shawn Ashmore)

Dr. Steven Hamilton (Joe Morton)

Ian Randall (Jonathan Taylor Thomas)

  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Backstabs his teacher, Lana and Chloe, Van, and eventually tries it on Eric. That last one doesn't end so well.
  • Killed Off for Real: Courtesy of Eric Summers.
    • A deleted scene had him die in his episode. But it was changed to his double falling to his death instead.
  • Me's a Crowd: Can split into two.
  • The Sociopath: Some meteor freaks are sympathetic. Others are clearly insane. Then there's this guy. Ian's a liar, a backstabber, and a total psychopath without a shred of empathy in him. He killed a teacher because he was threatening to bring his average down. I mean, jeez!

Alicia Baker (Sarah Carter)

AliciaBakerSmallville 7922.jpg

A girl with the power to teleport and a serious crush on Clark. She's an antagonist in Season 3, attempting to murder Lana, but returns in Season 4, having reformed. She is murdered by a meteor freak hater shortly after revealing Clark's secret to Chloe; both of these factors cause Chloe to change her stance toward meteor freaks.


Trent MacGowen (James Bell)

Tim Westcott (Derek Hamilton)

  • Dishing Out Dirt: Could convert to sand at will.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: Sand.
  • Frame-Up: Frames Alicia Baker for his murders.
  • The Fundamentalist: There is a serious religious undertone to most of what Tim talks about.
  • In the Blood: Inherited his belief in sin from his dad.
  • Knight Templar: Believes that all those who have sinned—no matter how small the infraction—must die. To put it in perspective, he tries to kill Lana and Jason for being in a student/teacher relationship.
    • He also believe the meteor shower had corrupted Smallville. It's more or less true.
  • Super Strength: He was able to choke Clark, who only escaped by shooting him with his heat vision.
