Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

I guess a book that's on a weekly schedule requires an assload of artists to keep up.

BTW I hope Miller gives us a Luthor family reunion. I want to see what Lucas Luthor is up to! Not only that but I want to see Tess get her hands on some Julian Luthor DNA and bring Grant Gabriel back!

I want to see a Luthor family feud the likes of which we've never seen before!

Lionel can stay dead though. He lives on through Lex now.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

Lucas's current location is unknown and has been since his appearance in season two. Given the memory problems Lex has been suffering thanks to Tess...I wonder if he even remembers Lucas, especially since Lex had him placed "safely away under his protection". He'd have to remember that in the first place.

That's why I think it would be Lutessa who would organize this little family reunion. I could imagine her rallying Lucas, Julian and even Connor and pitting them against Lex. Not in a Lionel way though... In a naive but spiteful Tess kind of way.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

Julian is deceased...so is "Grant" I believe. Unless there are more clones out there. I'm kind of hoping Tess overcomes her spitefulness...this is part of her having trouble adjusting to her new life, I know, but still...now that she's had one experience at being a hero...she needs to let go of her "Luthorness" and enjoy the new "life" that has been granted her. She has no real need for revenge. Hopefully through time...she can see that.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

Dude, you're telling me things I already know, re: Lucas & Julian.

I've little doubt there are tons of Julian Luthor embryos in cold storage just waiting to grow into a thorn in Lex's side.

Tess wouldn't be Tess if she wasn't a at least a little bitter. It just so happens that Tess' mercy generally outweighs her spite. That's what makes her more of a hero than your average Luthor.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

I wasn't implying that you didn't know about Lucas and Julian...I guess I'm just disagreeing about the Luthor family reunion, unless Q is somehow able to incorporate it into Lex's regaining memories...I don't see a purpose for it right now. I would love to see Connor though. Now that Clark is a little more mature...it would be interesting to see what Connor has been doing over the last year or so.

Next week though...she's finally here....DIANA!!!

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

Honestly I'm being kinda facetious about a full fledged reunion but... I think that it was a mistake for Al and Miles and-later on-Brian and Kelly to forget there was an extra Luthor heir out there. We go through all that drama at the end of the series about Lex and Tess and it's like Lionel had no other kids. I find it hard to believe that Lionel would just write off such a devious seed as Lucas. I mean he basically is the Luthor ideal and he's just forgotten.

Bullshit!

I think Lucas would make a neat speed bump in Lex's arc this season. He's busy trying to figure out his life again and then BOOM there's a baby brother who's more than willing to take his place as Metroplis's magnificent bastard!

Heck even if they skip it this season it might make a nice arc for Season 12.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

I think Season 12 would probably be a more appropriate place for such an arc. Lex has too much on his plate as it is right now! Although I suppose I really shouldn't rule out anything...especially given what Q has already given us thus far in the first place!

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

Haven't started reading 'Hollow' yet, but do either of you guys think that this could be leading up to them cloning Tess' dead body and somehow transferring her mind back into it? I mean what the hell, the Lex wandering around now isn't the original, right? Surely, one of Lex's facilities must've had some of Tess' genetic material stored somewhere.

I'm just sayin'...

Honestly that never occurred to me! If they could clone Julian and Lex then why shouldn't they be able to clone Tess? Nice call, Pro!

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

Hmmm. The question would be though would they have any kind of moral issue with that? Lex we know doesn't. Unless of course they brought this option up to Tess and she gave them their approval. Clones aside from Connor...haven't fared too well in the Smallville'Verse to date IIRC. That is a fascinating point Proc brought up though.

Why would there be a moral issue? Just grow a clone with no memories. Don't even let it become conscious before uploading Tess into it. Just make it a gorgeous, flame haired slab of meat just waiting for it's brain! Sort of a sexy Frankenstein!

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

Yeah. I guess you're right there wouldn't be any ethical or moral concerns. They would have to find a way to make sure the clone was stable though and didn't destablize or breakdown. They remind me of the Clone Wars clones. The few we've seen. If anyone could figure that out...it'd be Emil.

Now that's exactly what I had in mind!



Seriously, why wouldn't Tess want to have her body back? This, to me, seems to be a brilliant way to bring the character back, since the essence that made her what she was is safely preserved.

Thank you both for your support and kind comments. Let's see if Q comes up with the same idea.

Actually I feel like a schmuckface for not thinking it up myself. Here I was speculating on the possibility of more Julian Luthor clones and I never even think of there being any Lutessa Luthor clones out there.
