The version of Bart Allen that is portrayed in Smallville is noticeably different from the character in the comics. For Smallville, the character has an almost obnoxious sense of humor.

1st Smallville appearance: Season 5 Episode 101 - Vengeance

Andrea Rojas was a bumbling, mild-mannered intern who worked with Chloe Sullivan at the Daily Planet. She also happened to be a metahuman vigilante known as the Angel of Vengeance, a mysterious warrior woman who defends the citizens of Metropolis.

The version of Andrea in the comics is different from the one depicted on Smallville. In the comics, she is called Acrata and not the Angel of Vengeance. Acrata specializes in striking against authority.

Victor Stone is a teenager with endoskeletal cybernetic enhancements. He is part of Green Arrow’s superhero team under the code name Cyborg.

Jimmy Olsen : Aaron Ashmore

1st Smallville appearance: Season 6 Episode 111 - Zod

Henry James "Jimmy" Olsen was a young photographer who lived in Metropolis and worked at the Daily Planet until shortly before his death.

However, when the Smallville Jimmy was killed by Doomsday, it was revealed at his funeral that his name was "Henry James Olsen" implying that he was not the same Jimmy as from the comics, but rather his younger brother would turn out to be the Jimmy of the mythology.

Bizarro : Tom Welling

1st Smallville appearance: Season 6 Episode 111 - Zod

He originally felt that mass teams of heroes were "soulless" and that they "sacrificed the little guy." Unbeknownst to the team, however, Oliver bankrolled the newly established Justice League in the years preceding Batman's funding.




J’onn J’onzz/Martian Manhunter : Phil Morris

1st Smallville appearance: Season 6 Episode 118 - Static

Before that, he worked as an intergalactic bounty hunter known as Martian Manhunter. He was the last surviving member of an alien civilization that once existed on Mars; he once worked for Jor-El, trapping and imprisoning criminals from the 28 known galaxies.

So far on the show, the Martian Manhunter has shown capabilities similar to most of his comic powers. His origin, however, has yet to be explored in detail. In the comics, the Martian Manhunter is the last surviving citizen of the planet Mars (which creates a special kinship with Superman) due to a war that broke out between two Martian races that laid waste to most of his world, killing the entire civilization. He also shares the obsession for Oreo cookies.




Kara Kent/Supergirl : Laura Vandervoort

1st Smallville appearance: Season 7 Episode 133 - Bizarro

Kara Kent is Clark Kent's Kryptonian cousin, the daughter of Zor-El and a member of the House of El.

Smallville's interpretation of Kara features aspects of all the Supergirl incarnations, from yesteryear to present. Her origin in the series, however, is influenced by the most recent revision to it outlined above.

1st Smallville appearance: Season 7 Episode 138 - Lara

Lara-El was the Kryptonian biological mother of Kal-El and the wife of Jor-El. She perished along with her husband when her home planet Krypton exploded due to the fanatical actions of her brother-in-law Zor-El who used Brainiac to ignite the planet's core.

In the comics, there has been many different version of Lara. The original version had her behave as a simple wife and mother, but in later stories it was implied that she was infact a highly trained pilot and a member of the Kryptonian space program.
