Big 'Smallville' Spoiler

 TVLine  broke the news of major spoiler from SMALLVILLE: the early arrival of a version of a significant comic book character —Connor Kent, aka Superboy.
Lucas Grabeel is Alexander/Connor
Lucas Grabeel is Alexander/Connor
Likely to be revealed in the upcoming episode ‘Scion’,  it seems Alexander, the Lex Luthor clone, actually shares both Lex’s and Clark Kent’s DNA. (A plot wrinkle introduced in the comics, after the Death of Superman series.)
This was foreshadowed by the surprise ending of last Friday’s episode  Beacon, in which Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman) discovers to her shock that Alexander (Lucas Grabeel, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL) is becoming invunerable.
Producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders are quoted as saying:

“Conner’s [sic]  journey is manipulated by a master.  Luckily, someone knows more about Conner’s life than he does. But he should be wary of strangers bearing gifts.”

So it doesn’t look (at the moment) like the Alexander clone will age into the Michael Rosenbaum Lex. It will be interesting to see how the character will return in the series finale.
