From his humble beginnings in a small Kansas town, Clark Kent (Tom Welling) has come a long way from Smallville over the past eight years. But now, the world's greatest hero has risen. And he is not alone. In Season 9, Metropolis will see even more heroes and villains from the DC Universe than ever before! Chloe becomes a hero in her own right. Lois continues her fall for "The Blur." And Tess Mercer's always up to no good. Speaking of villains, though, let's not forget Brian Austin Green (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) as Metallo with his heart of Kryptonite, and Callum Blue as the escaped Kryptonian Public Enemy Number One . . . Major Zod! With new trials and new training, Clark will be tested as never before. Now on the brink of destiny comes his darkest hour. For even a hero has to pay for the sins of his father. Will Clark kneel before Zod? Check out all the superpowered action in Season Nine of Smallville!
