The Story : The pilot episode tells the story of the meteor shower that hit Smallville and changed life in the Kansas town forever.

Whitney Fordman, Smallville High's star quarterback and bully... also boyfriend to Lana. Pete Ross. Aspiring reporter Chloe Sullivan. And Lex Luthor, who as a child was balded and is now running his billionaire father's fertilizer plant in Smallville. In the pilot, a victim of a "hazing" 13 years ago emerges from a coma with strange electrical powers and takes revenge on the jocks who hung him up as a "scarecrow" in the homecoming hazing ritual. Clark, weakened by Lois' green meteor necklace, is similarly hung up but Lex rescues him. Clark confronts the electrically charged villain as he prepares to electrocute the homecoming dancers and short circuits him with water, making him forget Clark's superpowers. Meanwhile, Lex is intrigued by Clark when he accidentally runs over Clark who subsequently saves him while Lex is unconscious, and so an unusual friendship begins.
