Smallville Wiki

Sir Harry Hardwick was a multinational industrialist who tried to take over LuthorCorp.

Season One

Harry Hardwick with his daughter Victoria and Lex Luthor.

His first plan was to do this with the help of Lex Luthor. His daughter Victoria Hardwick rekindled her former romance with Lex in order to effect this plan, but then she discovered Lex's interest in Cadmus Labs, and she persuaded her father to buy it and use the profits to buy LuthorCorp. The whole plan blew up when Lex turned the tables on him- having left fake evidence of his interest in Cadmus Labs, which was actually fairly worthless and took over Harry's company after he expended his resources in buying Cadmus, leaving him financially ruined in the process.
