Lana was my second alternative to be the Red Queen. In order to kill Lana off they'd have to figure out how to strip her of her powers first and that would be pretty convoluted and complicated IMO. A problem of giving her that power suit in the first place.

Kryptonite is toxic to humans. In the comics Lex wore that Kryptonite ring to taunt Superman with and slowly contracted terminal cancer. I figure after a year or two of wearing that Kryptonite suit Lana's going to be nothing but a walking tumor and that's fine with me.

^ This is true and a possibility...prolonged exposure to Kryptonite gave Lex Luthor terminal cancer...but I thought that has been retconned and thus never happened to the current version of him?

No I think he just switched to a clone body or something.

^ This is what I mean that did happen...in the Bryne run...but I thought this has since been retconned thanks to Birthright and Superman Secret Origins. Luthor is just the same man and not a clone of the original.

Re: Lana Lang & SMALLVILLE...

I don't think they directly retconned it, but in the comics, Lex "died" and was put into a young clone body and passed himself off as his son. When that ruse was finally revealed, the clone shut down and Lex was basically trapped in his clone body, being fully aware of what was going on, but unable to move or do anything. A year after that, Lex comes back as he made a deal with the devil to come back in a fitter version of his original body. I don't think the clone thing had been directly mentioned since (other than with references with Superboy).

Re: Lana Lang & SMALLVILLE...

I wonder how many clones of Lana Lex had? I know he would have done more than just the one she blew up.

Lana clones. EWWWW. Perhaps he wanted to use the sound of her persistent nagging to get all but the deaf to commit suicide so he could take over the world.

Saturn Girl says to her in "Legion"
So let me get this straight: this show (which I've never seen and have no desire to see) has Clark Kent consistently in a blue t-shirt and red jacket (at least Gilligan had an excuse for not changing his wardrobe), has featured various people from the Justice League of America, including Green Arrow, has featured the Legion of Superheroes, has Lana Lang in it...
and no appearance of Superboy/Man.
Asinine.
I like a little Superman in my Superman. Hell, I didn't even watch Lois & Clark because they were more focused on Clark than Superman (and because Superman shouldn't look like a Eurasian college jock).
A Superman series without Superman. The mind reels.
My brother!!
