Alison Mack in Smallville by Michael Courtney/The WB Alison Mack in Smallville by Michael Courtney/The WB

As everyone knows, Smallville is based on Superman comics. But starting in March, the comics will take a cue from Smallville. In issue No. 674 of DC Comics' Superman, Chloe Sullivan - the character played on the CW series by Allison Mack and created by the TV show's producers - will join the Man of Steel's universe. The comic-book Chloe will be an aspiring reporter and the cousin of Lois Lane - just like on the show. Unlike TV, however, she'll be younger than Clark, she won't know his secret and she will not be meteor-infected. "She's the new intern at the 'Daily Planet,' fresh out of journalism school and itching to make a name for herself," Kurt Busiek, the writer of the comic, told Newsarama.com. - Rich Sands
