HistoryEdit

Smallville: SwannEdit

CrusadeEdit

Virgil Swann

Virgil Swann explains his current state to Clark.

Dr. Swann meets up with Clark and asks Clark not to be too hard on what his Kryptonian side did as it was the reason Jor-El sent him to the Kents. When Clark groans about Jor-El sending him as a conqueror, Dr. Swann recites what was written in Clark's ship and reveals that he is Jor-El. He also explains that Krypton was destroyed by a war he blames himself for, which led to Krypton's core igniting. He managed to escape through a portal to Earth, damaging an upper vertebra and being saved by Lara, who sacrificed herself, having already established himself as Virgil Swann on Earth. Virgil then goes to meet the Kents and explains what he meant by sending Clark there. He also thanks them for raising him. Once that's done, he explains the Stones of Power to Clark, Jonathan, and Martha, also stating he'd pop in from time to time.

Dr. Swann attempted to keep Lana safe after Jonathan was elected, but Lex inadvertently exposed Dr. Swann to Kryptonite, so he was immobilized for awhile. After Clark reset time using the Fortress and broke up with Lana to keep her safe, Dr. Swann pointed out that this could have unforeseen repercussions as Clark left, with Dr. Swann hoping that the one Clark must lose is himself. As Dr. Swann was musing over this at the farm, he saw Jonathan suffer a heart attack and sent Patricia to tell Clark and Martha. After the funeral, Clark used some Kryptonite to cut himself and put his blood on Dr. Swann allowing him to begin to heal, though it would take awhile since he was paralyzed for so long.

He doesn't force her to fire him, but he does advise it as her friend.
