Fourteen years ago, a meteor shower burst from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, Kansas. The intervening years have left the towns inhabitants with scars and secrets. In Season Five, Clark Kent (Tom Welling) finally begins to accept his destiny and takes giant leaps towards becoming the Man of Steel.. "We call this season Superman in Training," series co-creator Alfred Gough says. "Clark is going to accept his destiny."

During this exciting pivotal season: Clark faces rogue Kryptonians. Lex Luthor (today Kansas, tomorrow the world) launches a vicious political campaign. The Fortress of Solitude rises. Clark's love for Lana Lang deepens, and he and Lois Lane remain friendly adversaries. AC (aka Aquaman) surfaces. A spaceship mystery unfolds. A dark tragedy - one even Clark's powers can't prevent - strikes. These and more key elements of Superman lore fall into place.
