In this darkly take on a Christmas Carol/It's a Wonderful Life, Clark begins to wonder with Lana still comatose and Kara held captive in the past by Braniac, if things would be better if he never arrived on Earth. The spirit of Jor-El then transports Clark to an alternate reality of what Smallville and the rest of the world would be like if he never existed; an alternate adoptive version of Clark Kent living at the Kent farm; Chloe is engaged to marry another guy, and Lex Luther is the ruthless President of the United States, with Kara as his right-hand person/assassin, and Milton Fine/Brainiac as Lex's chief adviser.

In the alternate time line shown to Clark, Lex has been elected President of the United States. Lex must have also amended the Constitution because a person has to be a minimum of 35 years old to hold that office. There is no possible way Lex is 35, that would make him 15 years older than Clark, which is clearly not the case. See more

Yeah. And lucky for you, my dad didn't find you in the barn, 'cause he'd be pulling out his 12-gauge right about now.
