There have been plenty of different iterations of DC characters and their ‘super suits’ throughout the years, but since we here at Fan Fest are huge fans of the current Arrowverse, I thought that it would be fun to take a look back at another fan-favorite WB/CW show that followed these popular DC characters – Smallville.
For those of you who aren’t that familiar with Smallville(which is available to stream on Hulu ), it followed a young Clark Kent as he struggled to find his place in the world while learning to harness his alien powers for good and dealing with the typical woes of teenage life in Smallville, Kansas. The show ran for an impressive 11 seasons and 217 episodes and starred Tom Welling, Kristen Kreuk, Erica Durance, Allison Mack, Michael Rosenbaum and Jon Glover.
I went back and found some notable characters from Smallville and searched for either their Arrowverse counterpart or their recent Suicide Squad or upcoming Justice League character and the results will definitely put a smile on your face.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
