The powers: Super-strength, super-speed, heat vision, super-breath, super-hearing ... but not flight. Not until the end of the series.
The actor: Tom Welling
The run: 2001-2011
The villains: Lex Luthor, Lionel Luthor, Brainiac, Zod, Doomsday, Darkseid, random krypto-freaks of the week
The tone: Portrait of the superhero as a young man -- think "Dawson's Creek" meets DC Comics
Of note: "Smallville" is the longest-running comic-book series in TV history. And although the show had Green Arrow as a regular character, it's a very different Oliver Queen than the one who's showing up in the new series "Arrow."
