Smallville: End Of Second Season
Martha loses the baby so continuity gets back on track in that respect.
I would not accept backing from Lionel Luthor for a writing career because I would want to write against him and what he represents but I am not Chloe Sullivan.
Lionel is completely incapable of relating to people except by manipulating them. He likes people to hate him because they are weak when angry. I would like to see Lionel having to adjust to living in a society that obliged him to cooperate with, instead of controlling, others.
Did the Kryptonians send Kal-El to Earth so that he would rule it? Lex Luthor later sees Superman as an alien invader and himself as a champion of Terrestrial humanity against extraterrestrial super-humanity. In the John Byrne/Marv Wolfman version, Luthor became rich by his own unscrupulous efforts. In the Smallville version, he inherits wealth but retains it and prospers through his own, initially benign, efforts.
Either way, a powerful modern myth.
