new comers on Smallville

The network has announced two new characters that will be joining the cast of Smallville next season: the legendary, unstoppable Doomsday, and a female antagonist who will challenge Clark in ways never before imagined. Casting is underway for both roles.


Doomsday: In season eight, Clark will face his ultimate challenge with the appearance of the legendary, unstoppable destroyer Doomsday, who appears on “Smallville” for the first time. As comic book fans know, Doomsday is notorious for being the only character in the DC Comics universe to have killed Superman.


Female villain: Doomsday won’t be Clark’s only nemesis in the upcoming season. The executive producers are tight-lipped about a new female villain they will be introducing, but they can say she will be familiar to many fans and will set her sights on Clark in ways Lex never could. Intelligent, brilliantly manipulative, and dangerously sinister, our gorgeous new villain has one more weapon in her arsenal: Her mutual attraction with Clark may prove to be as deadly as kryptonite for him.

not being a massive comic book fan, I only have limited knowledge of doomsday..is he completely invulnerable?
If that's the case, how will Clark dispose of him? I guess he can be banished to the phantom zone or something.
Unless the end of Smallville comes with Clark being killed by Doomsday at the end of the series..(not likely).

.... Wow. *looks over on his shelf at his Superman comics, all surrounding his death, 4 new supermen, and Supermans return*. Yeah, so.. hrm. Yeah. Wow. Bad idea to bring this character to a show that's suppose to be about Clark's life BEFORE HE BECAME SUPERMAN. >( Maybe Season 8 will suck afterall. :(

do you think that doomsday will not be evil yet...like lex in the eariler seasons and brainiac?? so through the beginning seasons he will seam like a friend and slowly become a villan. but that would be kinda hard to do in only one season...i wish they had more! :-/

Kmack: I'd hope not, because that would defeintly ruin Doomsday. Doomsday is genetically bred to hate and kill any Kryptonian he comes in contact with. He was basically forced thru natural selection by a crazy scientist on Krypton (before the Kryptonians evolved and took the planet). Check out Doomsday story at Wikipedia sometime. I think just about 90% of everyone agree's that bringing in Doomsday is the most horrible thing they could do.

I think season 8 will be the begining of a closing to this great show, and predict that the show will end with 10 seasons. Doomsaday indeed will be a good or bad effect on the show. But I have seen postors of clark dressed in a superman suite staring at Doomsday. For anyone that doesnt know doomsday I solemly feel sorrow for you. The cartoon version of the fight between doomsday and superman was one of his best fights, he rips himselve of his security for the distruction that he may cause and just goes loose on doomsday. Season 8 will defidently leave people watching with there mouths open.

Hey guys! I am a new comer to the Smallville scene but because of this site i am keen to own all the episodes on DVD... I know many people were shocked about a few of the main characters leaving like Lex and Lana but I think that this is the best thing that could happen to the series, it's almost as if the series has a chance to have a whole new lease of life! Look how many characters there are that are apart of Superman's world! Let's not forget that Gotham also exists in this universe, maybe Clark might bump into the young Bruce Wayne! That would be amazing!
Looking forward to series 8BestReplacement

That's what I've been wondering! When the hell is CK gonna meet BW? Or Wonder Woman for that matter. I can't believe with all the other characters of the League they've introduced still no sign of these two very key people. Supposed to be Superman's two best friends!

Some of Doomsday's genes came from Superman himself, and he only has one goal and that is to kill Superman.. So, I don't think he will be "good" first in Smallville's storyline.. No one really knows what the writers are up to except them, but if they can produce Green Arrow, Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Siren, Braniac, Bizzaro, this new "mystery villain" and Doomsday! in Smallville, why in the heck can't they summon Bruce Wayne? Glad that Lana is gone, sad that Luthor is gone.. And who knows, maybe the "mystery villian chick" is the one who released/discovered Doomsday.. Well, thats just my opinion.. Smallville is still one of my fave shows and i'm still looking forward to season 8..

From what I've seen of the show they are really good writers... I know and understand the concerns with Doomsday and I think the show creators want to capitalize on the same hype that surounded Superman's death... It would be suicide to do anything than make it a breath encounter with Doomsday because Clark is still the unfinished badass that we know... Did somebody mention Wonderwoman? :-) With the shows dedication to babes... mmmmm sounds good!
