    open/close all folders 

     In General 

"Meteor Freak" is the term used to refer to the humans that obtained superpowers through exposure to the Kryptonite meteor rocks that arrived on Earth with Clark. Such meteor infection often results in psychosis, resulting in them becoming the Villain of the Week and spreading terror throughout Smallville and Metropolis.

  • Adaptation Origin Connection: Some of the Meteor Freaks are established characters in the comics that have completely different origins, like Plastique and Parasite.
  • Karmic Transformation: A lot of them get their powers related to something that they are in contact with or close to during the exposure to the meteors. Like Coach Arnold who got his Playing with Fire powers during a sauna or Desirée Atkins who got her Living Aphrodisiac powers while she was having sex with her boyfriend.
  • Magic Meteor: They gained their powers through contact with alien meteors from Krypton.
  • Mass Super-Empowering Event: They all gained their powers when the Kryptonite meteor shower of in which Clark first arrived on Earth and at the same time giving many of the locals odd powers and/or altering their personality sometimes and causing them to become the Villain of the Week. There are a few humans empowered by Kryptonian technology, and it's vaguely implied that there's some Kryptonian ancestry among humanity.
  • Tragic Villain: While some are shown to have no regret over trying to kill others and a few were already horrible people before gaining powers, it's worth noting that it's implied that gaining their powers altered their personalities and many end up with powers that force them to kill others to survive. And at the end of the day, the majority of the characters are just teenagers forced into horrible situations.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: A lot of the meteor freaks end up going insane and evil, with it being implied that kryptonite causes a psychosis that enhances their worst characteristics.
  • Villain of the Week: What the great majority of them end up becoming.

     Greg Arkin 

Greg Arkin
Played by: Chad Donella

A former geek who gained proportionate abilities to insects, using them to attack people. He kidnapped and tried to mate with Lana before being stopped by Clark. In Season 10, he reflects on his life and that of Clark's, declaring to Lois Lane that Clark inspired him to be a better person.

  • Animalistic Abilities: Greg has a variety of insect-themed abilities such as Wall Crawling, Projectile Webbing and shedding his skin.
  • Continuity Nod: His random reappearance and Heel–Face Turn in Season 10 is a possible reference to a Chloe Chronicles story where some of the bugs from his swarm form are shown to be in the possession of a scientist working on both giving himself powers and finding a cure for meteor freaks (if not for the powers, then at least the kryptonite psychosis).
  • Evil Former Friend: He was childhood friends with Clark and Pete, but after his parents' divorce he stopped spending time with them and Clark described their present relationship as "seeing seeing each other in the halls". By Season 10 he's no longer evil, and is grateful that Clark stopped him when he did.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: After being bitten by meteor-infected insects.
  • Heel–Face Return: By Season 10, he has gone through this off-screen and at first Clark is convinced he's planning to get revenge when he starts talking to Lois. However he instead tells Lois to tell Clark thanks, as he stopped Greg from hurting more people and put him on the path to fixing his life.
  • In a Single Bound: He can leap great distances.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Greg killed his own mother.
  • Shadow Archetype: Like Clark, he's an unpopular teenager with geeky interests who has a crush on Lana Lang and often spies on her. However, Greg doesn't have any friends, his interests clearly keep him from connecting to others, and his crush on Lana is far more obsessive.
  • Spider-Man Send-Up: Nerdy loner who gains insect related powers and at one point shoots webs from his mouth? Pretty obvious who he's based on.
  • Super-Speed: He can move fast enough to disappear from the sight of ordinary people.
  • Super-Strength: He could grapple with Clark.
  • Stalker with a Crush: For Lana.
  • Wall Crawl: He is shown clinging to walls and ceilings.

Coach Walt Arnold

  • Second Place Is for Losers: Beats and threatens his players if they achieve anything less than perfection.
  • Serious Business: Football.
  • Sore Loser: He doesn't take losing with stride.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Implied, since Jonathan doesn't mention him being as Jerkass as he is when attempting to dissuade Clark from joining the football team.
  • Unstoppable Rage: His rage alone is enough to generate large fires and scare people. It ultimately leads to his demise.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When he finds that his fire can't harm Clark, since he can't tolerate losing at anything.

Season 3

     Seth Nelson 

Seth Nelson

Played by: Kevin Zegers

  • Death by Irony: He didn't die, but being defeated by being magnetically attracted to a metal cart is really ironic.
  • More than Mind Control: He uses magnetic powers to tweak brain signals, but it is just a shade less of actual Mind Control (and it's uncertain if he knew he was doing this).
  • Power Perversion Potential: Unzips Lana's shirt with them. Don't worry, nothing happened.

She's even played by an actress from one of the Elm Street movies. However, she's a kind, innocent person with no malicious feelings toward anyone.

     Alicia Baker 

Alicia Baker
Played by: Sarah Carter

A girl with the power to teleport and a serious crush on Clark. She's an antagonist in Season 3, attempting to murder Lana, but returns in Season 4, having reformed.

  • Back for the Dead: She returns to Season 4 and has a romance with Clark only to be killed shortly after.

  • Cute and Psycho: She's very pretty and extremely unstable.

  • Heel–Face Turn: In Season 4.

  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: She becomes way too obsessed with Clark, to the point of attempting to kill Lana and almost raping Clark.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: By most of the people in Smallville, mostly due to what she'd done to her father and Lana. But post-mortem, at least Chloe, Lois, and Clark's parents showed remorse for her (especially Chloe, for obvious reasons).
  • Shadow Archetype: What if Chloe had all the ability to act on her crush, and none of the restraint?
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She revealed Clark's identity to Chloe. Something that changed the way Chloe related to Clark for the rest of the series.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Alicia is reserved or hostile around most people (initially having to keep a distance because of fear of her powers being exposed, and later because she's viewed warily after her stay in a mental hospital) but is quite excitable and warm around Clark, except during a couple Yandere scenes in her first episode.
  • Taking the Bullet: Literally does so for Clark to protect his secret.
  • Teleportation: She can teleport wherever she wants, as long as she isn't using lead.
  • Temporary Love Interest: After reconciling, she becomes Clark's girlfriend until she is killed by Tim Westcott.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Overcomes her insanity.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Her teleportation is blocked by lead.

Season 6

     Duncan Allenmeyer 

Duncan Allenmeyer

Played by: Bryce Hodgson

  • Anti-Villain: Type II. His victims really had it coming. Alden was thoroughly unrepentant and seemed to get a sick thrill from it, only wishing Duncan was there for further torment.

Daniel Kim

Played by: Anthony Shim

  • Alternate Self: Has one on Earth-Prime as an unnamed police officer.
  • Mind over Matter
  • Only Sane Man: Exceedingly rare as he appears in the same episode with Tobias, making two sane meteor freaks in one episode.Three if counting Chloe. But then, Lex doesn't give him much time until his minions catch up with him in a "car accident." This may have something to do with this episode being directed by Michael Rosenbaum, who always wanted Lex to be evil. Naturally, he would have to make meteor freaks more sympathetic to make Lex look bad. Also, it seems meteor freaks in general have becomes less psychotic after this episode.

     Lowell Wilson

  • Living Shadow: His power is a shadow form that can glide through the air and move through solid objects.
  • The Sociopath: Bad even for meteor freak standards. He kills (or at least tries to) just to get famous.

  • Adaptational Badass: A mild version. He doesn't need skin contact to absorb powers and it is done in a second. He could also give them back and keep them longer.
  • Alternate Self: Had one on Earth-1 before Crisis as Stanley Dover, and has two on Earth-Prime as himself and Thaddeus Killgrave.
