Fans of The CW's ten-year anchor "Smallville" breathed a sigh of relief last week when it was finally officially confirmed that former series co-star Michael Rosenbaum would return one last time to play Lex Luthor in the May 13 series finale. Now, word is out that the young Luthor clone that's been factoring in to the current Season 10 story line will appear again as a much different DC Comics character...

...Connor "Superboy" Kent. TV Line revealed that the teen superhero will appear as played by actor Lucas Gabreel. No specific episode was confirmed for the character's debut, but show executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders said "Conner’s journey is manipulated by a master...Luckily, someone knows more about Conner’s life than he does. But he should be wary of strangers bearing gifts.”
