Smallville Wiki

Green kryptonite

Green kryptonite appears in Smallville quite often, usually used as a weapon against the Kryptonian Clark Kent or as a source for humans to obtain superpowers.

Season One

Although it was not yet identified as "kryptonite" in Season One, meteor rocks were often seen in various forms.

Pilot (10/16/01) 101
Pilot meteor shower.jpg Back in 1989, the year of the meteor shower, it was shown that a meteor hit the field where Jeremy Creek was tied up as a Scarecrow. A young Lex was also nearby as the blast caused him to lose his hair. It was later revealed that Jeremy fell into a coma after the impact and didn't wake up until present day when he learned that the kryptonite granted him with electrokinetic powers.

Clark Kent's vulnerability to green kryptonite was also introduced in this episode when he tried to approach Lana Lang while she was wearing the meteor rock necklace. As soon as he got within five feet of her, Clark fell down and became sick. Whitney Fordman later used the same necklace to disable Clark and tie him up as a Scarecrow, unaware of the fact the necklace was the actual reason for Clark's weakness.

Metamorphosis (10/23/01) 102
Meta097.jpg Greg Arkin, a bug collector had his bugs imbued with kryptonite radiation. While driving them to safety his car crashed and released the bugs, causing them all to bite him (it was later revealed that his mutation wouldn't be possible unless a large number bit him at the same time). He was then granted with numerous bug-like abilities, namely the ability to create spider web and enchanted strength and agility.

The battle between Greg and Clark happened inside the Creekside Foundry, a place filled with meteor rocks which gave Clark a lot of trouble. However, he managed to find a cover made out of lead which was previously revealed to be capable of blocking the radiation.

Hothead (10/30/01) 103
103.jpg Coach Walt Arnold was exposed to green kryptonite in a sauna which caused him to receive pyrokinetic powers. He later locked Clark in the very same sauna which left him paralyzed, seemingly now knowing that kryptonite is his weakness. Jonathan Kent managed to find Clark in time, allowing him to confront Arnold who eventually became so upset that he burned himself to death.
X-Ray (11/06/01) 104
Xray3.jpg Tina Greer suffered from soft bone disease when she was young, but she made a miraculous recovery at the time of the meteor shower. It also allowed her to change her appearance into anyone of the similar height or weight. While confronting Clark at the cemetery, Tina had Lana's necklace inside a pocket on her jacket, so she easily managed to upperhand Clark. However, she was unaware of kryptonite being his weakness so Clark easily managed to knock her out soon after she took off the jacket.
Cool (11/13/01) 105
Coolgreenk.jpg Sean Kelvin fell into icy kryptonite-infested Crater Lake, and when he exited he suffered from permanent hypothermia. He was eventually thrown into a small pond by Clark and trapped when it was frozen solid with him still inside it.
Hourglass (11/20/01) 106
Hourgreenk.jpg Clark met Cassandra Carver, an elderly lady who was blinded in the meteor shower, but due to the kryptonite she gained the ability to see the future.

Volk then went on a killing spree, before he inadvertently suffocated himself in a grain silo. When Lex went to Cassandra to have his future told, the vision she saw startled her so much she died before telling Lex anything.
Craving (11/27/01) 107
Cravinggreenk.jpg Jodi Melville goes on a diet that is based on vegetable shakes grown from kryptonite infested soil. The meteor infested shakes sped up her metabolism so much, she lost weight overnight, but she can't get enough to eat so she started sucking the fat out a deer, and then a fellow student. Clark arrived in time to prevent Pete Ross from being her next meal, but falls prey to the kryptonite in her greenhouse. He manages to get far enough away from it to save himself and protect her from an explosion and then taken to the hospital for treatment. Lex funds Steven Hamilton to start research on the link between kryptonite and human health.
Jitters (12/11/01) 108
Jitters green k effect.jpg Earl Jenkins was suffering from uncontrollable seizures that he gained shortly after an explosion in LuthorCorp's mysterious Level Three involving a green mist. It was later revealed that trace amounts of kryptonite have been found under his skin and the violent seizures were trying to shake them out of his system. Even the small trace amounts of kryptonite were enough to weaken Clark to the point that he couldn't come within about five feet of Earl without losing his abilities. Earl was taken for treatment but it is revealed in the Chloe Chronicles that he died six months later. This marks the first known case of kryptonite being used in experimentation.
Shimmer (1/29/02) 110

After estranging himself from his classmates and family, Eric went back to the dam to attempt suicide. Clark arrived to explain that Eric can adjust to his powers, but this only angered Eric and he attacked Clark with a live power line. At the same time, Clark attacked Eric with Lana's meteor rock necklace and Clark's powers were transferred back to him.
