I was personally glad when the child-murderer Toyman was retconned out of recent comics.
You know when Clone Superman killed him in Superman: Doomsday (the DVD Movie) I was actually happy.

Yeah,
Yet another superman villian raped for Smallville. Just so they can make the show as Superman as possible without ever showing Superman...

So why is Smallville getting all the hype and the movies aren't going so well? I love Smallville but I wish the movies would do better, too.

Lois & Clark's first Toyman, aka Mr. Schott, was played by Sherman Hemsley, with Isabel Sanford as his sidekick. It was a Christmas episode, appropriately. Grant Shaud played a different Toyman.

I've been saying that for a while now. In fact, the last time I brought it up, the thread rolled off a Lane Davies soap star cliff.

And there's no need to even re-invent him, per se. Just have him be the Tempus from L&C, permanently banished from their corner of creation, and out to get any version of L&C he can get his hands on.

The Toyman character has been "refurbished" multiple times within the comics. How is this different?

Also it is very insensitive to use the word "rape" as a metaphor for something as trivial as revising a fictional character.

Re: Classic Superman villain to appear on Smallville *SPOILERS*

Add me to the list of those who would love to see Lane Davies back as Tempus!

They could have some in-jokes about L&C. Or just show him to know a lot about the characters. Let the fans figure out the connections to the other show. Either way Tempus would simply be fun! Which is something Smallville does not do nearly enough.

Have the Legion in the same episode to tie it more into DC lore.

Just hearing him say "Duh!" to Durance-Lois is worth an episode in itself.

I imagine Lane Davies would do it if asked.

I know that he has kept in touch with L&C fans. Groups of fans have attended plays he has starred in LA. He's met with them backstage. He really enjoyed playing Tempus.

He was fucking PERFECT. I loved the way he mocked the shit out of Lois right to her face for being too stupid to see through Clark's glasses disguise.

Yeah. He made that show for me. Quite frankly, I think Shea is kind of overrated.

I would love for Tempus to appear in the Smallville series finale.
