Smallville. Like many Superman and comic book fans, Smallville is extremely frustrating at times and the nine year run has been, at times, hard to watch. The "no tights, no flights" motto always pissed me off, but I stuck with it because, well, it's Superman.
Back in 2007, there was talk of Smallville's Chloe Sullivan making the jump from the long-running TV show to the comics world. Thankfully, it ended up not happening at the time.
I cannot stand the character of Chloe Sullivan (I do NOT have a problem with Allison Mack) mainly because she does not fit into the Superman world. She was a friend of high school Clark Kent, but now that we are in the Metropolis her character does not work in the story. She has become the Oracle of Metropolis and the leader of the quasi "Justice League." I find that to be very, very annoying.
So when I heard the announcement that Chloe will appear in the Jimmy Olsen co-feature that's debuting in Action Comics #893 and being written by Nick Spencer a little piece of me died. Damn you Chloe. You escaped death too many times.
