It was announced here back in December that the character of Chloe Sullivan, played by Allison Mack, from Smallville would be crossing from television to the world of Superman comics. Sadly, that seems to no longer be the case, according to a report from Earth's Mightiest.com.

"Chloe is an exciting character on the television show, and we had hoped to work her into DC continuity," DiDio told Newsarama last week, "but unfortunately, the stars did not align properly, and even though we had announced it, she will not be appearing in any of the issues of Superman or Action Comics."

Previously, it had been announced that the character would be appearing the in Superman 674, which is due out March 12, 2008. The synopsis at DCComics.com still reads "Clark and Lois...[have] relatives coming to visit--namely, a certain blonde cousin of Lois's from Smallville. It all sets the stage for a major new addition to the cast in next month's anniversary issue! Can you say 'Chloe Sullivan'?"

While there is no official word as to why "the stars did not align properly," speculation among the fans is that the character most likely strayed too far from the version of Chloe seen on Smallville.

In the meantime, fans that want to see Chloe can either read the comic-book adaptations of Smallville, or see her when episodes of the show resume on the CW network.
