Dr. Virgil Swann
Played By: Christopher Reeve
Fourteen years later, after seeing a newspaper photo of a Kryptonian symbol burned into the Kents' barn, Dr. Swann tracked down Clark Kent and invited him to his laboratory at the New York City Planetarium; when Clark came to visit him, he told him of his Kryptonian heritage and encouraged Clark to pursue his own destiny. In Season 3's "Legacy," it was revealed he was an old acquaintance of Lionel Luthor, who attempted to get info about Clark out of him. At the end of the episode, Swann somehow managed to get ahold of the key to Clark's spaceship.
In Season 4's "Sacred", Swann died of unknown causes, though not before returning the spaceship key to Clark along with a final letter of encouragement. In Season 7, it's revealed that Swann, along with Lionel, the Teagues, and the Queens, founded a secret society called Veritas that was dedicated to protecting Kal-El (known to them as "The Traveler"). Swann also kept a journal that was passed down to his daughter Patricia, who gave it to Clark.
- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-96 as Superman.
- The Character Died with Him: Christopher Reeve's passing in 2004 results his onscreen character Swann's death on Smallville.
- Genius Cripple: Swann was highly intelligent despite being paralyzed.
- Handicapped Badass: In "Legacy," he and Lionel face off, and he manages to verbally kick Lionel's ass.
- Herald: See the above quote.
- Mentor Archetype: To Clark, teaching him more about his origins.
- Mister Exposition: He's the one who tells Clark all about Krypton.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Chistopher Reeve's death is the reason for Swann's passing.
- Remake Cameo: Reeves played Superman in the 1978 film Superman: The Movie and in it's three sequels.
- Tuckerization: His last name, Swann, was named after legendary Superman comics artist Curt Swan.
Sheriff Nancy Adams
Played By: Camille Mitchell
- Action Girl: Being a police officer, she had to be.
- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-Prime as Maria Bertinelli.
- Killed Off for Real: In Season 5's "Lockdown."
- Must Have Caffeine: Amusingly, the only real connection she has with anyone outside of work is through their coffee (eg. Lana as the owner of the Talon and its fancy espresso rig).
- Redeeming Replacement: Unlike Sheriff Ethan, she is not corrupt.
Dr. Emil Hamilton
Played By: Alessandro Juliani
- Alternate Self: Has two on an undesignated Earth, one as himself and one as officer Sekowsky.
- Badass Bookworm: He's a Secret-Keeper for the entire Justice League, and there's pretty much nothing you can do to make him reveal those secrets, even if he does panic a bit when threatened with physical violence.
- Cartwright Curse: The two women he's been established as having any sort of romantic or sexual connection to, his wife and Tess, are both dead, his wife before he ever appears on the show and Tess by the end of the show's run. This is weakened a bit by the Season Eleven comics, wherein Tess is essentially brought back to life.
- The Coroner: Frequently gets to examine the bodies of the latest super-powered Serial Killer's victims.
- Deadpan Snarker: Has his moments, usually when under pressure.
- Elvis Impersonator: In "Fortune." Seriously.
- Gadgeteer Genius: EMP grenades, high-tech cars—you name it.
- Hidden Depths: Turns out he's a hell of a singer, but hasn't performed—or even had a good time—since his wife died.
- Home Porn Movie: Films one with Tess while drunk.
- Kissing Under the Influence: With Tess in "Fortune". Heads right into Aliens Made Them Do It.
- Non-Action Guy: Emil has no fighting skills and doesn't pretend to, panicking very easily when threatened with physical violence. He never betrays the team, though, even under threat of torture.
- No Sense of Humor: Often played this way. It's not so much that he's humorless, but that he's a very serious person with no time for jokes.
- Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Biology, medicine, technology—Emil's good with all of it.
- Pair the Smart Ones: With the equally bright (if in a different sort of way) Tess.
- The Quiet One: Very calm and reserved.
- Secret-Keeper: For the entire Justice League. He keeps it in the face of a VRA interrogation to boot.
- In early season nine he was also the secret keeper for Chloe's Big Brother Is Watching shenanigans. He apparently had been poking around inside the Watchtower without her realizing it and found her out.
- The Smart Guy: Frequently plays this role to Oliver, Clark, and company.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Fits this trope very well.
Detetive Maggie Sawyer
Played By: Jill TeedA reoccuring ally who first met Clark in Season 2 as a lieutenant, and later appering in one episode for Seasons 3, 5 and 7. She also appeared in the Season 11 comics working with Dan Turpin, who previously appeared in a Season 8 episode.
- Age Lift: Unlike most depictions Maggie appears to be older than Dan Turpin by at least a decade assuming they are roughly the same ages as their actors.
- Alternate Self: Had one on Earth-1 as Dr. Avery Pressnall before Crisis, one on on Earth-Prime as herself and another on an undesignated Earth as Sharon Powell.
Andrea Rojas / Angel of Vengeance
Played By: Denise Quinones
- Adaptational Name Change: In the comics she called Acrata, which is the name of her mother's organization in the show.
- Adaptational Superpower Change: In the comics, Acrata is a Shadow Walker.
- All There in the Manual: Andrea feels guilty about her actions in "Vengeance" and jumps back from the slippery slope, but it happens during the online/DVD extra The Vengeance Chronicles rather than on the show itself. And only Chloe seems to be aware of it for the time being. Also, Andrea decides to continue as a superhero, with Chloe as her friend and confidante.
- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-Prime.
- Clark Kenting: Mild-mannered reporter at the Daily Planet who wears glasses. Sound familiar?
- The Cowl: She's a black-wearing dark vigilante that fights crime at night.
- In a Single Bound: She can jump from the ground to an office building's window and jump between buildings.
- Kill Him Already!: When Clark does a Neck Lift to the week's bad guy.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: She kills criminals that deserve it.
- Shadow Archetype: To Clark. Both of them had a parent they lost indirectly due to Lionel Luthor. And at the time of their meeting, both of them were driven by vengeance. However, while Clark was able to turn back from Jumping Off the Slippery Slope by remembering his late father's advice, Andrea unfortunately let her pain and anger get the better of her, and after killing the man responsible for murdering her mother and doing nearly the same to Lionel (he ordered the hit) before disappearing from public view as a fugitive.
- Super Strength: She can easily send grown men flying.
- Uncertain Doom: In the Season 11 comics Rose Wilson claimed to have taken Andrea down, but it isn't made clear whether she killed her as she didn't kill Stargirl when she had the chance and Superboy doubted she could actually kill someone.
- You Killed My Mother: She says this to Lionel, who ordered the hit on her mother.
Legion of Super-Heroes — Rokk Krinn (Ryan Kennedy), Imra Ardeen (Alexz Johnson), Garth Ranzz (Calum Worthy), Brainiac 5 (James Marsters)
- Action Girl: Imra.
- Alternate Self: Imra and Brainiac 5 both have one on Earth-Prime
- Ambiguously Human: They're said to come from other planets though in the comics it varies whether the Legion are Human Aliens or descended from Earth colonists. We'ree not told which is the case here.
- Book Dumb: Garth is implied to be this.
- Civvie Spandex: They sport outfits inspired by their comic costumes presumably for disguise. The Season 11 comics have them in their classic outfits in the 31st Century.
- Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: They are never called Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad. Inverted with Brainiac 5, who is never called by his civilian name, Querl Dox.
- Extra-ore-dinary: Rokk
- Fanboy: Garth is an unabashed Kal-El fanboy. Fortunately, it's one of the rare harmless examples of this in-show.
- Fantastic Racism: Have suffered it, courtesy of radical Humanists.
- Freudian Trio: Garth's the Id, Rokk the Ego, and Imra the Superego. This is more or less consistent with their portrayal in the comics.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Brainiac 5. He's the one behind the Flight Rings and most of their other tech.
- HeelFace Turn: The Legion re-programs Brainiac into Brainiac 5.
- Human Aliens: Imra, Garth, and Rokk all look pretty darn human.
- Omniscient Morality Licence: Think they have one, due to being from the future.
- Mythology Gag: Garth asks Clark to sign a baseball for his sister. Those who've read the Legion comics know that she's Light Lass, one of the other Legionnaires.
- Shock and Awe: Garth, again.
- Shoot the Dog: Their objective.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Rokk, Irma and Garth only have one major appearance in the series (with Rokk later having an additional cameo in "Doomsday"), but their introduction in the episode "Legion" has a massive impact on how the last three seasons of the show play out.
- Clark and the Legion separate Brainiac from his host, Chloe, without having to kill her, which later leads to Chloe running off with Davis Bloome in the latter half of Season 8, something that did not happen in the Legion's original timeline. Ultimately, this change in the timeline results in Jimmy Olsen's death and the Justice League temporarily drifting apart.
- The Legion give Clark two of their rings, so he'll be able to contact them or visit them whenever he likes. Lois gets her hands on one by mistake at the end of Season 8 and travels one year into the future. This event plays a vital role in the Kandorian arc of Season 9, when she discovers a world where Zod conquered the Earth ("Pandora") and she returns to her own time with repressed knowledge of everything she learned ("Savior", "Pandora").
- In Season 10's "Homecoming", it's revealed that the Legion's decision to take Brainiac back to their own time and try to reform him actually paid off. Brainiac 5 shows Clark his past, present and future to convince him to let go of his doubts and regrets that are holding him back - and this is shown to be a very important, positive experience for Clark, that gives him another big push towards becoming the hero he was always meant to be for the rest of Season 10.
- The Smart Guy: Brainiac 5.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Imra comes off as The Stoic thanks to her Telepathy, but as the episode shows, she really does have a heart in there.
- Telepathy: Imra
- Mind Probe: Although it backfires horribly against Brainiac.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: They pick it up from Clark.
- ¡Three Amigos! / Two Guys and a Girl
Justice Society of America — Carter Hall / Hawkman (Michael Shanks), Kent Nelson / Doctor Fate (Brent Stait), Courtney Whitmore / Stargirl (Britt Irvin), Dinah Drake / Black Canry I, Wesley Dodds / Sandman (Ken Lawson), Sylvester Pemberton / Star-Spangled Kid (Jim Shield), Pat Dugan / Stripesy, Shayera Hall / Hawkgirl (Sahar Biniaz), Jay Garrick / The Flash, Alan Scott / Green Lantern, Ted Grant / Wildcat, Charles McNider / Dr Mid-Night, Abigail Hunkel / Red Tornado I, Rex Tyler / Hourman, Terry Sloane / Mister Terrific, Jim Corrigan / Spectre, Al Pratt/The Atom
- Aborted Arc: The reformation of the Justice Society of America ended up as this. The ending of Absolute Justice had Stargirl and Hawkman looking for the old JSA members with the implication they were going to restart the team. This plotline was never picked up again. Although the Season 11 comics would introduce Jay Garrick/The Flash and have him form the Teen Titans.
- Action Girl: Stargirl
- Action Hero: Hawkman
- Alternate Self: The Hawks, Stargirl, & JSA have them on Earth-Prime, while another Stargirl & JSA reside on the post-Crisis Earth-2. Jay Garrick also has a counterpart on Earth-3 while Dinah Drake has one as Carolyn Lance on Earth-203.
- Ambiguous Situation: Its unclear what happened to the remaining members of the JSA. Jay Garrick shows up in the Season 11 comics, but the fates of Alan Scott and the rest are never clarified.
- Badass Adorable: Stargirl
- Bare Your Midriff: Stargirl
- Boom Stick: Stargirl's rod.
- Breaking the Fellowship: Disbanded after Checkmate had them arrested on false charges. Although they were released, the members realized they couldn't defy Checkmate's resouces and opted to go their separate ways.
- Broken Ace: All of them, but especially Hawkman.
- The Cameo: In addition to the character inroduced in the episode, the arrest footage feature brief appearances from Jay Garrick/The Flash, Alan Scott/Green Lantern, Ted Grant/Wildcat,and Al Pratt/The Atom. A number of members also appear in the JSA portrait including Dinah Drake/Black Canary, Jim Corrigan/The Spectre, Rex Tyler/Hourman, Terry Sloane/Mr. Terrific, Charles Mc Nider/Dr. Mid-Nite, and Shayera Hall/Hawkgirl.
- Carry a Big Stick: Hawkman's mace. His wife seems to have favored an Epic Flail.

- Cute Bruiser: Stargirl
- Death Seeker: Hawkman, and possibly Doctor Fate.
- Stargirl also appeared furious that Green Arrow saved her life when she went up against Icicle. Though it's implied that she was acting somewhat self-destructively due to Sylvester's death.
- Dying Moment of Awesome: Hawkman. He fights Slade and is mortally wounded and set on fire, yet still flies to Lois' rescue before going out like the badass he is.
- Face Death with Dignity: Hawkman. He tells Clark that he'll have no problem defeating Darkseid, apologizes that he won't be there to help him, and even cracks a joke about how he's the expert on dying, then closes his eyes and appears to go to sleep. Generally speaking, it's a pretty dignified way to go.
- Girly Bruiser: Stargirl
- Glass Cannon: Doctor Fate's a Reality Warper, but goes down in one hit. He does seem to be a bit of a Death Seeker, though.
- The Gwen Stacy:Hawkgirl
- Happily Married: For all their issues, Carter and Shayera.
- Herald: Doctor Fate could be seen as this with the quote:
- Heroic Sacrifice: Doctor Fate sacrifices his own life to restore Martian Manhunter's powers.
- Hawkman in "Icarus."
- Hero with Bad Publicity: They were arrested and framed by the goverment organization Checkmate. Although they were eventually released, the false charges remained until Lois writes an article to restore their reputation.
- Intergenerational Friendship: Between Stargirl and the older members of the Society. Hawkman eventually forms one with Clark and Oliver.
- Killed Off for Real: Star-Spangled Kid, Sandman, Doctor Fate, Hawkman.
- Little Miss Badass: Stargirl
- Mask of Power: The Helmet of Nabu grants whoever wears it Doctor Fate's powers. God help you, though, if you aren't its personal choice.

- And Hawkman in "Icarus".
- Talkative Loon: Doctor Fate in his human form as Kent Nelson.
- Together in Death: Implied with Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
- True Companions: "Family isn't just about blood."
- Undying Loyalty: They stuck together in the face of their arrests, something Clark admired even when he thought they were criminals.
Green Lantern Corps— John Stewart, Hal Jordan (presumed deceased), Tomar-Re (deceased), Kyle Rayner (deceased), Guy Gardner (deceased), Salaak, Kilowog, Ch'p, Soranik Natu, AyaAn intergalactic police force created by the Guardians of the Universe. However one of their members, Hal Jordan, was possessed by Parallax and used to decimate the Corps into only a few members.
- Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: The Yellow Lanterns were created by the Guardians to back up the Green Lantern Corps instead of being an antagonistic force like the Sinestro Corps.
- Alternate Self: Hal, Tomar-Re, Kilowog, and the Guardians all exist on Earth-12, and Kilowog and the Corps also exist on an undesignated Earth. Hal also has a counterparts on Earth-66 and Earth-N52.
- Ambiguous Situation: How Alan Scott relates to the larger Green Lantern Corps is unclear, with John Stewart admitting he has no idea how he got a power ring. In the comics, Alan's power source is quite different and he took the name by sheer coincidence.
- Death by Adaptation: Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, and Kyle Rayner are killed before they meet any other superheroes and never joined the Justice League. Tomar-Re was killed in Krypton's destruction which he survived elsewhere, while Ganthet and the Guardians were murdered by Parallax.
- Demoted to Extra: The other human Lanterns are only referenced in the backstory.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: In regards to their Earth-12 counterparts, Hal is believed to have been killed by Parallax while Tomar-Re was killed by the destruction of Krypton. The Guardians themselves were all killed by Parallax.
- Legacy Character: After the original Guardians were killed by Parallax, the surviving members of the Corps agree to elect some of their members to be the new Guardians with John Stewart being one of them.
- Power Glows: The Green Lantern uniforms.
- The Remnant: Only a handful of Lanterns are left after the war with Parallax.
Played By: Elena Satine
- Action Girl: Can fight side by side with her husband, having similar powers to his.
- Alternate Self: Has one on an unnamed Earth.
- Battle Couple: With A.C. (or "Orin", as she prefers to call him).
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Initially has a poor option of Lois due to not having any powers, but once Lois proves herself, Mera changes her tune.
- Fiery Redhead: Mera does not restrain from speaking her mind.
- Green-Eyed Monster: A bit towards Lois, since she briefly dated A.C. in the past.
- Happily Married: To Arthur/Aquaman.
- Making a Splash: She can control water and make it hit with enough force to knock Clark over.
- No Social Skills: Whatsoever.
- Raised by Wolves: Or at least Atlanteans. Boy, does it show. From her lack of a nudity taboo, right down to how she speaks.
- Satellite Character: Her role in the plot revolves around being A.C./Orin/Aquaman's wife.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: Changes clothes in front of Lois without even stopping to think about it and seems to enjoy making her fluster.
- Smug Super: Mocked Lois for not having powers and any skills she considers useful. She tells Lois to her face that she doesn't understand what Arthur, Oliver, and Clark saw in her. Mera gets over herself when Lois helps them defeat Slade.
- Super Strength: On par with Arthur's.
- Super Speed: She can swim as fast as Arthur.
Species: HumanThe crime fighting partner to Bruce Wayne/Batman, but unlike her mentor she is far more optimist and has more of a sense of humour. This optimism eventually led her to be chosen as a Blue Lantern and she left to explore her new abilities, but not before arranging for her boyfriend Dick Grayson to take her place.
- Adaptational Badass: Eventually becomes a Blue Lantern.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: Not only is she Nightwing in this universe she was Batman's first partner and actually introduced Bruce to Dick Grayson.
- Alternate Self: Has five, one on Earth-Prime, one on Earth-9, one on Earth-66, one on Earth-89 and one on Earth-203. She counts as a case of Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome as she is the only one to become a Blue Lantern.
- Badass Crew: Let's see—we got the Fastest Man Alive, an Action Girl with a sonic scream, a Cyborg with Super Strength, and the King of the Seas. All led by the biggest Badass Normal in the show, with the occasional assist from Superman and Mars' Last Survivor.
- Big Damn Heroes: Often.
- Cheap Costume: Bart wears sunglasses and a red hoodie with a lightning bolt sewn on. Oliver wears green leather and, again, sunglasses. A.C. dresses in green scuba pants and an orange shirt. Victor wears a silver-grey jumpsuit. Dinah relies on a makeup mask, a black leather outfit, and a wig in her Secret Identity. Clark, of course, had his red jacket/blue shirt combo (later a black Badass Longcoat). For bonus points, compare their looks with those of the JSA, who all wear their classic spandex costumes.
- Deadpan Snarker: All of them on occasion, but especially Victor.
- Distressed Dude: Each of them has been caught by Lex in some way or another and needed to be saved by Clark. Something Chloe points out in "Justice".
- La Résistance: How they see themselves.
- Superhero: They move closer to the archetype with every episode, but aren't quite there yet, having yet to move into the public eye or wear their classic costumes.
- Western Terrorists: How the government (and Lex) see them.
- Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: The government considers them terrorists for attacking holding facilities and blowing up Lex's 33.1 installations. The League sees themselves as freedom fighters, keeping people like Lex and Slade Wilson from experimenting on metahumans.
Played By: Justin Hartley
First arriving in Metropolis in Season 6, Oliver dated Lois Lane and clashed with Clark over whether a pro-active or reactive approach was the best way to deal with crime. Frustrated with Clark's Heroic Neutral tendencies, Oliver gathered the proto-Justice League in an effort to shut down his old classmate Lex Luthor's Level 33.1 laboratories, eventually leaving Smallville (and Lois) to fight LuthorCorp all over the world.
Returning briefly in Season 7, Oliver had his secret outed in front of Lois during a battle with Black Canary. In Season 8, he became a regular cast member. This led to many revelations about his past, including his tortured relationship with Tess Mercer, whom he assists in taking over LuthorCorp. Oliver would go on to struggle with an intensification of his already-existing feelings of self-loathing, emptiness, and alienation. Entering a relationship with his girlfriend seemed to help snap him out of it, but her disappearance early in Season 10 sent Oliver into another downward spiral.
A deeply screwed-up young man with an extremely negative view of himself and the world, Oliver has clashed with the more idealistic Clark on many occasions. Despite this, he remains a loyal friend to the future Superman, a great (if flawed) Superhero, and one of the biggest badasses in the entire show.
- The Alcoholic: Oliver's always had a drinking problem, but in Season 9, he descends into this.
- Alternate Self: Including his Earth-2 counterpart he has a couple in the multiverse, with the most noticeable version being on Earth-Prime.
- Anti-Hero: When we first meet him, he believes that, if a Corrupt Corporate Executive buys valuable artifacts from evil warlords or The Mafia, it's justifiable to steal the artifacts away from them and use them to fund charities. He provides the cynicism to Clark's idealism and, unlike our hero, is willing to stray from Thou Shalt Not Kill if he deems it necessary.
- Archer Archetype: Commonly fights with a bow and arrow.
- The Artifact: As Green Arrow, he always wears a hood, dark sunglasses, and a voice modifier...even after he publicly reveals his superhero identity, making all these disguises completely unnecessary.
- Ascended Extra: He started out as a recurring guest character for the first half of Season 6, after which Oliver left town. But fan response was so overwhelmingly positive to the character that Ollie was brought back to guest star again in an episode of Season 7, and then brought on as a full cast member from Season 8 onward.
- Badass Normal: He more than makes up for lack of superpowers with archery and athleticism.
- Badass Baritone: Has a deep, somewhat growly voice. Fitting for a character In the Hood.
- Bash Brothers: With Clark by the later seasons.
- Broken Ace: Oliver is rich and successful, moonlights as a superhero, and has more women than he can handle. And he hates himself, as demonstrated by his self-destructive tendencies, alcoholism, inability to commit to anything, and attempted suicide in Season 9.
- The Casanova: Pre-Lois and Chloe.
- Cheap Costume: A green leather hoodie and sunglasses. Somehow, he makes it look badass.
- Composite Character: He's Green Arrow in name and abilities, but his status as the more cynical Badass Normal Anti-Hero to Clark's idealist who eventually becomes his best friend is more similar to Bruce Wayne.
- The Corruptible: As proven by Desaad in "Masquerade" and referenced by Zod in "Dominion".
- The Cynic: Contrasting with Clark's idealist.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: Inverted. Confirmed to still be alive in 2018, all his counterparts are either dead or their status is unknown.
- Despair Event Horizon: Hits it in Season 9. After an intervention from Chloe, he gets better.
- Dual Wielding: In "Dominion".
- Expy: There are some sharp similarities between his characterization and relationship with Clark, and that of Batman. Throw in the fact that The Dark Knight Trilogy likely meant the writers couldn't use Bruce, and that makes a lot of sense all of a sudden.
- Fatal Flaw: His self-loathing. Oliver became a hero partly to make up for how bad he used to be but he is willing to cross lines either because of his low self-view of himself or overzealous desire to get over it and when he does such things it causes him to view himself as unworthy of being a hero, leading to even more self-loathing. His flaws essentially feed into themselves.
- Friends with Benefits: What he and Chloe try to be in Season 9, even though...
- Everyone Can See It: They feel for each other much more strongly than that.
- Good Counterpart: To Lex, the two acting as a reflection of the other in regard to their journey and relationship with Clark while the two have similar character flaws. Lex started out as friends with Clark but his personal flaws and toxic relationship with Lionel led him down a dark path that resulted in him becoming Clark's Arch-Enemy. Oliver meanwhile started out as a reluctant ally to Clark, with it taking some time for the two to become genuine friends and while his flaws cause problems he ultimately is able to overcome them to become a better hero unlike Lex who decides to simply embrace them.
- Gun Kata: Against Lex in Season 7's "Siren".
- Hell-Bent for Leather: His superhero costume is made of leather
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Saying that Oliver hates himself is not an understatement.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Clark.
- Honest Corporate Executive: Every cent of Queen Industries' money was earned honestly. Ollie treats his employees fairly and, unlike Lex, refuses to sell to the bad guys. This is actually one of his biggest problems with Tess and the Luthors—the way they let their desire for profit get in the way of ethical business practices.
- I Did What I Had to Do: Regarding his murder of Lex. In fairness, the latter character was trying to mass-murder everyone in Metropolis.
- Iconic Sequel Character: He is introduced after Season 5 but is a memorable character. So memorable in fact, that he became the foundation of Smallville's Spiritual Successor.
- In Spite of a Nail: Despite many differences between himself and his counterpart from Arrow in terms of background and personality, they have lived very similar lives to each other in comparison to the comic book version. Both were cynical powerless vigilantes who were good friends with a more optimistic superhero with powers, ended up in relationships with women who acted as mission control to their teams as opposed to their comic book love interest Black Canary, and eventually each had a child with their respective wives with neither one being Connor Hawke who is his son in the comics. Also unlike in the comics they essentially replace a more famous superhero in their respective universes, with it later being revealed that said hero had already established himself and been active for years.
- Interrupted Suicide: Clark stops Toyman's bomb before Oliver can use it to kill himself in Season 9's "Echo".
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may seem oblivious and jerky at times, but his heart is always in the right place.
- Karma Houdini: Deconstruction It was revealed in "Reunion" that he accidentally caused the death of one of the classmates that he bullied. We don't actually see if he gets punished, but either way, Oliver's self-loathing as an adult has its roots in this incident, and his desire to be a hero is partly about trying to redeem himself.
- Oliver also never faces legal repercussions for straight-up murdering Lex in Season 8 and pinning it on Winslow Schott. Instead, he falls into a guilty, suicidal depression in early Season 9, renounces his vengeful, murderous ways for good after "Roulette", and is metaphorically redeemed by overcoming Darkseid's corruption at the end of Season 10. Lex's eventual resurrection means Oliver is a hero who literally got away with murder.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: His murder of Lex after Lex threatens to nuke Metropolis. He feels incredibly guilty about it and people scold him, but given how much of a twisted sociopath and would-be mass-murderer Lex had become, it's easy to see why he did it.
- Ladykiller in Love: With Lois in Seasons 6 and 7, and with Chloe in Seasons 9 and 10.
- The Lancer: Started out as The Leader to the Justice League, but rapidly shaped up to be this to Clark.
- The Masquerade Will Kill Your Dating Life: It certainly blew up his relationship with Lois.
- Mr. Fanservice: Seen very often without a shirt on.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In the Season 8 finale. He and Chloe are more or less responsible for Jimmy's death.
- Non-Idle Rich: Ollie is one of the richest men in the world, and he uses his wealth, connections, and company to fight for what's right.
- Pragmatic Hero: Is willing to KILL villains, if it is for the greater good.
- Parental Abandonment: His mom and dad died in a plane crash when he was very young. Guilt about it has left him very bitter.
- Properly Paranoid: Frequently. He and Chloe collecting an arsenal of Kryptonite weapons in Season 9 may look irrational, but as the Bad Future episode "Pandora" proves, they really come in handy.
- Really Gets Around: Tess, Lois, Chloe... not to mention all his other conquests.
- Reformed Bully: In high school, he was The Bully. He has since repented, but his role in the bullying of Duncan, Lex, and others is one of the reasons why he's come to hate himself. Despite Lex's turn to evil, Ollie actually makes a point of personally giving Lex a heartfelt apology for his behavior as a teenager. It's lampshaded in-universe that, although Ollie did some bad things a teen, he's been working hard to redeem himself...while Lex has gone in the opposite direction.
- Secret-Identity Identity: Oliver Queen really doesn't exist. Sometimes he's not sure Green Arrow does either.
- Secret Relationship: With Chloe in Season 9. The relationship is soon discovered by Clark and Lois, though...
- Sharp-Dressed Man: Whenever he's in a suit.
- Shoot the Dog: Seems to be his job description some days.
- Suicide by Cop: Winslow Schott plans to kill Oliver with a bomb during one of Oliver's bleakest periods of depression and self-loathing... and Oliver actually tries to make Schott's plan work.
- Team Member in the Adaptation: Downplayed as Oliver did join the Justice League in the comics, but he was never a founding member.
- The Team Benefactor: Provides all the nascent JLA's money.
- Trick Arrow: Tasers, gas—what will he think of next?
- What the Hell, Hero?: Courtesy of Chloe, after his murder of Lex. He turns it around on her by pointing out that she would have done exactly the same thing.
- You Shall Not Pass!: In the Bad Future episode "Pandora". Armed only with his trusty bow and arrows. Against an entire swarm of super-powered Kryptonians. Badass.
Played By: Kyle Gallner
- Accidental Time Travel: The Season 11 comics confirm he's from the 31st Century, where he was shown as a child meeting a time travelling Superman, though how he ended up in the past is unclear beyond that it had something to do with how he got his powers.
- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-Prime.
- Amnesiac Hero: Contrary to what he told Clark when they first met, the Season 11 comics reveal that he remembers nothing prior to getting his powers. A later story arc reveals that he comes from the 31st century and getting his powers somehow sent him back in time.
- Badass Adorable: Has a childlike look, but is a strong speedster.
- Big Eater: He burns up a large amount of calories so he often eats large amounts of food quickly.
- Cassandra Truth: He really is from the future like he told Chloe, though ironically he isn't aware of this.
- Cheap Costume: His main outfit in the show.
- Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: Although he does use Impulse, he never adopts the Flash identity unlike his comic self.
- Composite Character: Is largely based off Bart Allen/Impulse, but his role as a founding member of the Justice League and friend of Superman are taken from Barry Allen/The Flash.
- Gratuitous Spanish: In "Justice".
- Handsome Lech: Of the childish variety. He flirts with Chloe in all the times they meet, with varying but generally low levels of success.Chloe: I still have a boyfriend.
- HeelFace Turn: From sneak thief to superhero. Not bad, Bart.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In the Season 11 comics, sacrifices himself in order to defeat the Smallville version of the Black Flash.
- In the Hood: As seen in the above image.
- Legacy Character: Oddly averted considering reliance on the trope in The Flash. He had no idea who Jay Garrick was and never uses the Flash codename.
- Mythology Gag:
- His fake identities are "Jay Garrick", "Barry Allen", and "Wally West", the first three Flashes from the comics (Season 11 would acknowledge this when they actually meet Jay). Bart himself in the comics became the fourth Flash.
- Also, he tells Chloe he's from the future when using a bad pickup line, with Bart actually coming from the future in the comics. At the time however this wasn't revealed to be true for this version of the character.
- Not Wearing Tights: His outfit has the traditional Flash colors, but looks nothing like any of the comics outfits. Season 11 give him a costume thats seems to take inspiration from Jay Garrick's look rather than any of his comic outfits.
- Parental Abandonment: He claims that he ran away from home after the way his parents looked at him after he got his powers. This was revealed to be a lie in the Season 11 comic, and his mother was briefly shown to be a woman living in the 31st century.
- Pet the Dog: Saving Jonathan from the truck and later Chloe from a gunman.
- Required Secondary Powers: He seems to have the "super-stopping" and "resistance to friction" things down.
- Smug Super: A mild, almost likable version. Bart's incredibly cocky about his Super Speed, and it tends to get him into trouble.
- Sunglasses at Night: As part of his sort-of costume.
- Super Speed: Duh.
- Team Member in the Adaptation: Downplayed as Bart did join the Justice League in the comics, but he was never a founding member.

- Alternate Self: One on Earth-Prime, two on Earth-9 as himself and Hank Hall, one on Earth-N52 and one on an unnamed Earth.
- Battle Couple: With Mera in Season 10.
- The Beastmaster: Has been shown to have some degree of ability at communicating with and controlling animals. The degree has not yet been explored.
- Happily Married: As of Season 10's "Patriot".
- James Bondage: Three times, courtesy of Lex, Tess, and Slade.
- Known Only by Their Nickname: Not quite, but Arthur is usually referred to as "A.C.".
- Making a Splash: Can form water into blasts or compress it into missiles. He also gains his Super Strength and Super Speed from contact with it.
- Mobile Fishbowl: A variation. A.C. has to drink or at least touch large amounts of water and avoid overheating or he loses his powers and may eventually die.
- Mr. Fanservice: Has a fit body, which he shows often.
- Super Speed: In the water. He can swim faster than Clark can.
- Super Strength: Not quite to Clark's level, but the boy can do some damage, from breaking shackles to beating five or six LuthorCorp guards to a pulp with his bare hands.
- Surfer Dude: In his earlier appearances. Softened later, but not entirely dropped until "Patriot."
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Receives a Lampshade Hanging from Victor.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: A.C. bordered on this in his first appearances, what with sinking ships and blowing up factories in order to save the environment.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Arthur manages to be pretty badass despite this.
- Which makes sense, seeing as the idea of Aquaman being 'useless' is an idea from the Superfriends cartoon. Every other incarnation of him has been Badass.

- Adaptational Attractiveness: In addition to being more lithe and lean than other versions of the character, he still has his entire face.
- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-21, Earth-N52 & an unnamed Earth.
- Back from the Dead: Was reportedly killed in a car crash, but thanks to LuthorCorp technology, he's back and kicking.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: After his girlfriend left him, he ended up living on the streets until Oliver found and recruited him.
- Genius Bruiser: He's the Justice League's muscle and their computer hacker.
- Hollywood Cyborg: Was re-built by LuthorCorp after a very nasty accident.
- Hollywood Hacking: Victor can interface with any system and download himself into it, allowing him to easily break any codes.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: In his first episode. He seems to be over it by "Justice".
- I Owe You My Life: Towards Oliver.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Not quite to Clark's level, but unless you're backing a laser cannon, you aren't getting through Victor's hide.
- Parental Abandonment: His mom, dad, and sister were killed in a car crash.
- Super Strength: He can tear steel blast doors off their hinges. No kidding.
- Team Member in the Adaptation: At the time the show was made he was best known as part of the Teen Titans, although later the New 52 did have him as a founding member of the Justice League.
- Token Minority: Initially, Victor is the only black member of the Justice League. Martian Manhunter later joins, removing this status from him.
Played By: Alaina Huffman
- Action Girl: She was pretty dark in her first appearance, compared to the rest of the good guys. She becomes friendlier, but hasn't lost any of her badass points.
- Adaptational Personality Change: Her being right-wing is quite a deviation from the comics, who was as equally left-leaning as Oliver, albeit less vocal about it.
- Alternate Self: On Earth-203, Earth-Prime & an unnamed Earth.
- Anti-Hero: She's a flawed, misguided but well-intentioned heroine in her first appearance. In her later appearances, she's a genuine heroine.
- Blonde Republican Sex Kitten: Pretty, capable, and hard right-wing.
- Boyish Short Hair: In a reverse of her comics self, she has short blonde hair as Black Canary and uses a dark haired wig in her civillian ID. In the last two seasons, her hair is longer making her better resemble her original comic counterpart.
- Decomposite Character: Her love interest role to Oliver was sent to Chloe.
- Hell-Bent for Leather
- Hired Guns: Initially contracted by Lex to hunt down Green Arrow.
- Legacy Character: Confirmed by Word of God. Her mother Dinah Drake was Black Canary as part of the JSA.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: She can even make Clark's ears bleed.
- Mythology Gag: She's given a bit of Ship Tease with Oliver early on, as a nod to their on-again/off-again relationship in the comics.
- Secret Identity: Dinah Lance, which she maintains via a long, brown-haired wig, over her short blonde hair.
- Secret-Identity Identity: Black Canary is very much her real identity.
- Strawman Political: Subverted. While her hard right-wing views are mocked by Chloe, Clark, and Oliver, the show never dissects them, thus making it impossible to prove her wrong in or out of series.
- Stocking Filler: Fishnet style.
Played By: Phil Morris
- Alliterative Name: J'onn J'onnz.
- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-Prime and on an unnamed Earth as himself, and one on Earth-21 as Silas Stone.
- Badass Baritone: His deep voice is well suited to such a noble and badass character.
- Badass Boast: "I'm Mars' last survivor. There's a reason for that."
- Badass Longcoat: Though he typically wore a cape in the comics, here he swaps it for a purple longcoat.
- Big Damn Heroes: His role in many episodes is to burst in at the last moment and save the day.
- Brought Down to Normal: At the start of Season 8 as a result of flying a dying Clark (who lost his powers yet again) to the Sun in order to restore his powers. This gets reversed in Season 9's "Absolute Justice", thanks to Doctor Fate.
- The Cameo: In the episode Hourglass, Cassandra's vision of Lex's future shows him standing on a field surrounded by the skeletons of people he has killed, with it possible to see an alien skull in the background suggesting Lex kills J'onn in the future.
- Civvie Spandex: Sports an outfit remeniscant of his traditional comic costume.
- A Form You Are Comfortable With: Why he normally appears as a human instead of a green-skinned Martian.
- Last of His Kind: The last of the Martian race.
- Mentor: To Clark, and the rest of the League.
- Mysterious Protector: At first.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: In his guise as a cop.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Well, if you're a villain, anyway.
- Shapeshifter Mode Lock: Gets trapped in human form in Season 8.
- Superhero Packing Heat: Following his Shapeshifter Mode Lock, yes.
- Superpower Lottery: Like Brainiac, J'onn is a major winner. Let's see:
- Eye Beams
- Flying Brick: Has Super Speed, Super Strength, and Flight. While he lacks the usual Nigh-Invulnerability, he compensates by having a Healing Factor (that, unfortunately, doesn't work in Earth's atmosphere) and being...
- Made of Air: He can turn intangible, allowing attacks to pass through him.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Cookies, especially Oreos.
- Twofer Token Minority: Black and a Martian. Though he may not actually count because he isn't actually black, he just uses a black human form.
Species: HumanMotivated by the murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne dedicated his life to become the vigilante Batman. First appearing in the Season 11 comic story Detective, he became a good friend of Clark's and a part time member of the Justice League. He protects Gotham with help from Barbara Gordon, who operates as his partner Nightwing, but after she joins the Blue Lantern Corps she makes arrangements for Dick Grayson to replace her.
- Adaptational Late Appearance: Played with as while it's not uncommon for Batman to have been operating in secret and then becoming more public around the time Superman debuts, here the Justice League and several other heroes had appaeared by the time he makes his first offical appearance when it's more common for him to be one of the team's founders.
- Alternate Self: Has many throughout the multiverse, most noticeably on Earth-Prime, Earth-9, Earth-66, Earth-89, Earth-97, Earth-N52 and an undesignated Earth. Also has one from Earth-13, a sadistic criminal who murdered his own parents and ended up on Earth-167 who also resembles a very well known villain.
- Composite Character: Not him, but his Earth-13 counterpart is essentially the Joker.
- The Ghost: Never appears in the show, but is mentioned once by Chloe in Season 10. However in the episode Hourglass, Cassandra's vision of Lex's future shows him standing on a field surrounded by the skeletons of people he has killed, with it possible to see Batman's costume in the background suggesting he will be one of Lex's victims.
Species: AmazonianPrincess of the Amazons, Diana first met Clark in the Season 11 comic story Olympus while searching for her missing mother Hippolyta. After finding her and reuniting with her childhood friend Steve Trevor, she decides to remain in Man's World as Wonder Woman and joins the Justice League.

- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-Prime, one on Earth-9, one on Earth-76, one on Earth-N52 and one on an undesignated Earth.
- The Ghost: Never appears in the show, but is mentioned once by Chloe in Season 10. However in the episode Hourglass, Cassandra's vision of Lex's future shows him standing on a field surrounded by the skeletons of people he has killed, with it possible to see her bracelets and tiara in the background suggesting she will be one of Lex's victims.
Species: HumanA detective in the New York Police Department, John is also part of Green Lantern Corps and first meets Clark in the Season 11 comic story Lantern. He eventually joins the Justice League.
- Adaptational Job Change: Is a detective for the NYPD instead of an architect.
- Alternate Self: Has two on Earth-Prime and Earth-16 as John Diggle, and one on Earth-90.
- The Cameo: Not him speifically but in the episode Hourglass, Cassandra's vision of Lex's future shows him standing on a field surrounded by the skeletons of people he has killed, with it possible to see a power ring in the background. While this doesn't necessarily mean it's John's power ring, it does suggest that Lex is fated to kill one of Earth's future Green Lanterns.

- Alliterative Name: Zatanna Zatara.
- Double Standard: Rape, Sci-Fi: When she casts her spell on Clark in Warrior to make him kiss her, things were clearly heading in a more intimate direction and the only reason it stopped was because Clark's love for Lois made him snap out of it. Despite this clearly being a violation of Clark's trust and a case of a hero abusing their powers, he bears no ill towards Zatanna and in fact feel guilty when he tells Lois about the kiss.
- Hot Witch: Zatanna is a witch, and very attractive.
- Kissing Under the Influence: Does it to Clark, although her intent isn't malicious.
- Her wedding present for Clark and Lois also causes this for Tess and Emil, and leads to Chloe and Oliver getting married.
- Literal Genie: Her spells grant the literal meaning of the wish, not the metaphorical one.
- Love Potion: In Warrior she hypnotizes Clark into making out with her.
- Magicians Are Wizards: Can perform both stage magic and the real thing.
- Mythology Gag: Her presence in the show and as Clark's ally actually serves as a clever reference to how her father first appeared in Action Comics #1 just like Superman.
- Parental Abandonment: Her dad is dead; we don't know about her mom.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: Clearly has a slight crush on Clark, who appears to on some level reciprocate.
- What the Hell, Hero?: It doesn't occur on screen, but one has to think that she got one of these after "Fortune," given how absolutely horribly getting six people, one of whom has superpowers and all of whom are secretly a part of a vigilante organization, ridiculously drunk and then letting them loose among hundreds of people with no supervision could have gone.

- Celebrity Is Overrated: He gets to discover this over the course of his episode.
- Expy: This version of Booster Gold has quite a significant Captain Amazing vibe.
- Freudian Excuse: His ridiculous personality and Large Ham/Jerkass tendencies stem from his desire to re-claim the fame he had before he started throwing matches.
- Idiot Hero: Booster really isn't all that bright.
- Incredibly Lame Pun: His name has "Gold" in it. Don't worry, he'll remind you shortly.
- Jerkass: Hugely so.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: By the end of "Booster", saving Jaime's life (albeit by using what Clark said to him earlier) and agreeing to help Jaime learn to control the Scarab.
- Jerk Jock: He was a professional athlete before he became a "hero."
- Mission Control: His AI, Skeets.
- Mr. Vice Guy: Well-intentioned, but ignorant, arrogant, and a danger to himself and others.
- Power Armor: His suit, which enables flight and discharges Hard Light energy beams.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks he can replace Superman.
- Throwing the Fight: Booster deliberately lost matches for the money. In doing so, he also lost his sports career and all of his fans.
- Team Member in the Adaptation: While most of the characters have been members of the Teen Titans in the comics, that was long after the team was established. In this version these characters are the first members of the Teen Titans.

- Adaptation Dye-Job: Blonde in the comic books, brunette in the show. She did wear a blonde wig at one point for Mythology Gag, however.
- Alternate Self: On Earth-Prime the identity of Speedy is used by Oliver's sister Thea Queen (who is a loose adaption of Mia).
- Hooker with a Heart of Gold: She works as a prostitute to survive.
- I Owe You My Life: Oliver repeatedly saving her is what pushes Mia to be his protege.
- Ms. Fanservice: A given since she's a hooker.
- Mythology Gag: She's fond of wearing red and yellow, the colors of her costume in the comics. She also wore a blonde wig as mentioned above.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: She disapears and is never mentioned again after Season 9. This is acknowledged in the Season 11 comics where it is explained that Oliver became too busy to really keep in touch with her and sent her to work with Black Canary.
Species: MartianFirst appearing in the Season 11 comics, she is the last surviving White Martian who was raised by Checkmate agent King Faraday until she was saved by Martian Manhunter and Batman.
Species: HumanFirst appearing in the Season 11 comics, she was going to be sacrificed by a cult to summon Trigon before she was saved by Zatanna and John Constantine.
- Adaptational Species Change: Is not half-demon like most versions and is just a human with magical powers like Zatanna.
- Alliterative Name: Rachel Roth, later known as Raven.
- Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-9.
- Unrelated in the Adaptation: Unlike in most versions Rachel isn't Trigon's daughter and instead was just a girl to be used as a sacrifice.

Admirers of the Blur the twins attempted to be heroes like him but due to their youth and inexperience they caused more harm than good before Clark and Chloe could help them figure out what they were doing wrong. In the Season 11 comics they end up joining the Teen Titans.
- Adaptational Species Change: Possibly as there is no mention of them being aliens, but at the same time an explanation for their powers is never given.
- Hero with an F in Good: At first due to not doing any investigating they end up arresting undercover cops, but soon grow out of it with help from Clark and Chloe.
- Wonder Twin Powers: Obviously.
Played By: Kenneth WalshYes, Clark actually met Father Christmas himself in the Season 5 episode "Lexmas" in a subplot where Clark, while delivering presents as a favour for Chloe, encounters a drunk Santa complaining about the state of the world. However a conversation with Clark renews his faith in the spirit of Christmas and he appears at the end of the episode to prove he wasn't just a drunk man dressed as Sana Claus.
- Mythology Gag: His appearance is likely one to the Christmas stories which showed Superman helping Santa save Christmas, with most of those stories ending with Superman acting in the place of the reindeer to fly the sleigh so Santa could deliver presents.
- Real After All: He at first appears to be just a depressed man in a Santa suit, but at the end of the episode he appears to Chloe to deliver all the presents she had asked Clark to deliver. She turns her back for one second and both Santa and the presents had vanished.
A friend of Zatanna who helped her save Rachel Roth.

Species: HumanThe boyfriend of Barbara Gordon who decided he would be a good successor as Batman's partner.
- Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: This Dick was never adopted by Bruce as a child, with it implied that his parents are in fact still alive, and by the time they do meet it is when Dick is an adult.
- Adaptational Wimp: In the comics Dick became a superhero as a child, and in comparison to his counterparts in the multiverse he is the most inexperienced version. However the ending of the Season 11 comics suggest he will become a superhero.
- Alternate Self: On Earth-1, Earth-9, Earth-66, Earth-97, Earth-203.
- Demoted to Extra: In the comics and every other adaption of the character Dick is Batman's first sidekick and one of the most important members of the Bat-Family. Here he's nothing more than a cameo.
- For Want of a Nail: All his counterparts have so far been confirmed to have lived almost exactly the same lives: their parents were murdered which led Bruce to adopt them/take them in as their crime fighting partner. This version never lost his parents and becomes Batman's new partner due to his girlfriend suggesting he would be a good replacement.
Species: HumanThe neighbour to John Jones who is also a fan of Superman while also having a friend named Mary.
- Adaptational Backstory Change: Unlike in the comics Billy lives with his mother.
- Adaptational Wimp: Isn't a superhero in this version, or at least hasn't become one yet.
- Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: Has one on Earth-66 and another on an undesignated Earth, both of them being superheroes as opposed to being a regular kid.
- Unrelated in the Adaptation: Here Mary Bromfield is just his school friend instead of his sister.
- Played by: Sebastian SpenceAppears in: Booster
The CEO of a major defense company that handles sensitive technology. He encounters Clark after sending Booster Gold to retrieve Blue Beetle's scarab. He also appears in some of the season 11 comics.
- Adaptational Wimp: Unlike in the comics, he never assumes the Blue Beetle superhero identity himself.
- Good All Along: Initially, he seems shifty, due to being a stern and secretive business tycoon who employs the smarmy Booster Gold to go after Jaime's scarab. However, he only wants the scarab to keep it from hurting anyone, and ultimately lets Jaime keep it upon seeing that he can handle it.
