Jim 2000s

Aired: 2001-2007 The WB Smallville

DAD: Lionel Luthor (John Glover) / Widower

DAD’S JOB: Evil Rich Guy

KIDS: Lex (18)(Michael Rosenbaum)


STAND-IN “MOM”: Nobody

Lionel really works hard at being Television’s Worst Dad. He *means* well (if “well” means “getting his own way”), but using his son as a cudgel to find out Clark Kent’s Big Secret is over-the-top. But that’s the beauty of this Superman prequel series. Evil is FUN.
