Smallville was based on the very popular DC Comics Superman character. It tells the story of Clark Kent as a young man living in the town of Smallville, Kansas, coping with adolescence while he is developing superhuman powers, exploring his extraterrestrial origins, and struggling to find his destiny.
The series often deals with the people in Clark Kent's life: his adoptive human parents, Jonathan Kent and Martha Kent; his peers, Chloe Sullivan, Pete Ross; his love interest, Lana Lang; and especially his friendship with a young Lex Luthor.
The element of Kryptonite is used as a recurring plot device throughout the series. Kryptonite is shown to have bizarre and lingering effects on human physiology and the young superhero often has to fight meteor-rock mutated villains who have developed weird powers, such as psychic abilities, shape-shifting abilities, and other paranormal abilities.
