[via press release from The WB]

DC COMICS CHARACTERS THE FLASH AND MXYZPTLK ARRIVE IN "SMALLVILLE" AND CLASH WITH CLARK KENT FOR THE FIRST TIME

Burbank, CA - October 19, 2004

DC COMICS CHARACTERS THE FLASH AND MXYZPTLK ARRIVE IN "SMALLVILLE" AND CLASH WITH CLARK KENT FOR THE FIRST TIME

Beloved DC Comic characters The Flash and Mxyzptlk arrive in Smallville on a mission and have their first meeting with a young Clark Kent (Tom Welling). On Wednesday, October 20, 9:00 p.m. PT a young Flash (guest star Kyle Gallner) speeds into Smallville, while villain Mxyzptlk (guest star Trent Ford) stirs up trouble on Wednesday, November 3, 9:00 p.m. PT.

The Flash, aka Bart Allen, shows up in Smallville, and surprises Clark by stealing Jonathan's (John Schneider) wallet, then super-speeding from the scene. Clark attempts to catch him but is stunned when he realizes he has met someone faster than he is. Bart arrives at the Kent farm and tries to convince Clark to join him on the road. Later, Bart also has an unpleasant run-in with Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) that puts both their lives in danger.

Famous for challenging Superman with magical mischief, Mxyztplk swoops into Smallville in the form of Mikail Mxyztplk, a young foreign exchange student who starts an underground gambling ring at the high school. Chloe (Allison Mack) is drawn into the ring and loses her savings on a football game after Mxyzptlk uses his powers to control all the players - including Clark. When Chloe discovers Mxyzptlk's secret, he kidnaps her and threatens to kill her unless Clark throws the championship game. Meanwhile, Lex threatens Mxyzptlk with deportation unless he uses his powers for Lex's benefit.

The Flash and Mxyzptlk are the latest DC Comics characters to appear in the series. Perry White (Michael McKean) made an appearance last season and Lois Lane (Erica Durance) joined the cast this year.

The Flash first appeared in January 1940. His special powers enable him to run at near lightspeed and to pass through objects. Mister Mxyzptlk hails from the fifth dimension and possesses shape-changing abilities and other "magical" powers that can transform animate and inanimate objects into other forms. The villain first appeared in October 1944.

Reinterpreting the Superman mythology from its roots, SMALLVILLE was developed for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar based on the DC Comics characters. Gough and Millar serve as executive producers, along with Greg Beeman, Ken Horton, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola.

The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Tollin/Robbins Productions and Millar/Gough Ink. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster.
