Smallville 15th Anniversary: A Retrospective Look

As it celebrates its fifteenth anniversary, Ricky Church looks back on Smallville

When I was a young teenager, I had actually been drifting away from comics and superheroes a bit. After Batman & Robin it became clear no more Batman movies were going to be made for a while and cartoons like Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond were winding down while the late 90s and early 00s weren’t particularly great for comics. Three things over the course of my high school years reignited my passion for these characters. Starting backwards, it was Batman Begins, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films and Smallville.

15 years ago today, one of the longest running science fiction shows aired on television. Smallville set out to explore Superman’s youth in the titular town, but its real objective was to humanize Clark Kent and his journey to becoming the world’s greatest superhero.

Learn About Smallville’s Justice League Spinoff That Never Was

As we continue to live in The Golden Age of Superhero Television, it’s important that we not forget Smallville made the current crop of shows possible. Its retelling of Superman’s formative years yielded guest appearances by heroes and villains from around the DC Universe that many of us never thought we would see in live action.

While it may be common knowledge that an Aquaman pilot was shot and came close to airing and there had been discussions of Laura Vandervoort’s Supergirl getting a spinoff, it had been unknown until now that another spinoff nearly came to fruition: Justice League!

Nearly a decade ago, Craig Byrne, the mind behind Kryptonsite, sat down with then producer Steven S. DeKnight when compiling information to be included in Smallville: The Official Companion Book for Season 6. During those discussions, DeKnight detailed what the ill-fated Justice League series would have been like.

Impastor's Michael Rosenbaum Thanks the TV Gods, Mulls 'Super' Guest Star

One could say that Michael Rosenbaum’s prayers were answered when TV Land’s Impastor came his way. For the Smallville alum not only found in the comedy perhaps “the perfect role” – as a charming, extremely non-religious con man who co-opts the identity and life of a clergyman (who he later learns is gay) — it came on a show that proved to have legs, and as such earned a Season 2 pick-up weeks ahead of this Tuesday’s finale.
