Question: Holy kryptonite, Batman! Silver kryptonite!?! What's up with that? Any details on when it shows up and what it does to Clark? Maybe it will give him super column-writing skills like your own!

Answer: That's the kind of first-rate sucking up that gets your question answered in Ask Ausiello, Jacob. The silver stuff shows up in Smallville on Nov. 10 and, as I teased last week, it makes Clark a wee-bit paranoid. He imagines his worst fears coming to light. Like, for instance, Courtney Love taking over the role of Lana. Just an example.
