Unlike most of the people in his life , Lana was with Clark from the beginning: She saw his transformation from country boy to superhero happen first hand. She was the first person Clark went to when his latent powers began to surface. She saw first hand his X-Ray vision, and witnessed his acute hearing.

  • Lana Lang is Clark Kent's first love and Lex Luthor's ex-wife. She founded the Isis Foundation, a non-profit devoted to helping meteor-infected metahumans, and also led the renovation of the Talon coffee shop. Lana lived a mile away from the Kents and was admired from afar by her neighbor Clark Kent for years. When they reached high school, Clark gained the courage to get to know her and she became an important part in his circle of friends. Clark and Lana have attempted to have a relationship several times, but for a long time he was unwilling to trust her with the secret of his true origins. However, Lana knew Clark was hiding something, and to her mind this unspoken fact had always driven a wedge between them and prevented them from being together. Lana's relationship and subsequent marriage to Clark's former best friend Lex Luthor caused the breakdown of their friendship as well, even as Lana grew increasingly closer to finding out Clark's secret. After she faked her death to get out of her marriage, she later returned to Smallville. She and Clark reunited and she moved onto the farm to live with him and his cousin Kara. Lana fell victim to evil Kryptonian computer Brainiac in his attempts to control Clark and Kara and was in a strange catatonic state for weeks. Lana awoke after Clark destroyed Brainiac; she broke up with him and has since moved away from Smallville. Lana, later, returned to Smallville for Chloe and Jimmy's wedding after training in not feeling pain and torture and has been stealing vital information from Lex. She successfully was fused with Project Prometheus. When Lex Luthor had Winslow Schott put a kryptonite bomb on the roof of the Daily Planet, Lana was forced to absorb the kryptonite. This infected Lana with kryptonite and therefore, Lana can no longer be near Clark. Lana left Smallville to use her abilities for good.

  • Lana Lang, a childhood friend of Clark Kent in Smallville, Lana is the Editor of the Business Section at the Daily Planet and lives in the penthouse of Hammersmith Tower in Metropolis with her niece.
  • Lana Lang is Clark Kent's first love interest and Lex Luthor's ex-wife as well as a vigilante fighting to preserve life, as well as protect and defend those around her. Previously, Lana founded and managed the Isis Foundation, a non-profit devoted to helping meteor-infected metahumans, as well as also led the renovation of the Talon coffee shop. Lana's biological parents are Laura Lang and Henry Small, her legal father was Lewis Lang. Lana was adopted and raised by her aunt Nell Potter, following the deaths of her legal parents. Lana has two half-siblings ( they are her biological father's children) Tyler and Kaitlyn Small, who Lana never really got a chance to get close to since they attended boarding school in Metropolis. Growing up, Lana lived a mile away from the Kent family and was admired from afar by her neighbor Clark Kent for years. When they reached high school, Clark gained the courage to get to know her and she became an important part of his circle of friends. Clark and Lana have attempted to have a relationship several times, but for a long time he was unwilling to tell her the secret of his true origins to protect her from his enemies. Clark declared his love for Lana the day before their high school graduation, as well as asked her to give him another chance. She agreed and the two officially started to date. The next day, Lana witnessed two aliens come out of the Black Ship and attack a cadre of police officers as a second meteor shower hit the town. After high school, Lana moved to Metropolis, as well as enrolled at Metropolis University to study astronomy and meteors. Lana wanted to discover if there were possibly aliens living among them, much to the dismay of Clark. Clark attempts to get her to drop her investigation drove a wedge between them, especially since Lana knew Clark was hiding something. Unlike Clark, Lex supported Lana in her conclusions and helped her in her investigations. To protect Lana from getting hurt, Clark told her he didn't love her anymore so that she would break up with him. Lana was devastated and turned to Lex for comfort. Because of the time spent together with Lex, Lana grew to trust him, not realizing that in the meanwhile Lex was manipulating her into pursue a relationship with him. Lex loved Lana and was afraid to lose her, so he set up a fake pregnancy in order to get her to marry him. The two later divorced after Lana found out about the fake pregnancy. After faking her death to escape and punish Lex for his betrayal. Lex found her and reassured her that she had nothing to fear from him, as well as agreed to leave her with the $10 million she had stolen from him as a form of divorce settlement. Lana later returned to Smallville and reunited with Clark, the two then made plans to reignite their relationship and this time more honestly. She moved onto the farm with Clark to live with him and his cousin Kara. Lana later fell victim to the evil Kryptonian computer Brainiac in his attempts to control Clark and Kara and was put into a strange catatonic state for weeks. She awoke after Clark destroyed Brainiac. Tess Mercer, obeying Lex's orders, then forced Lana to give Clark a "Dear John" DVD breaking up with him, as well as then kidnapped her, but Lana managed to escape. Lana realized that Lex would always come after her and decided not to return to Smallville until she could defend herself. She tracked down a former military instructor and convinced him to train her in not feeling pain and torture. She later teamed up with Dr Groll and the two worked to fuse her with a Power suit, which was Lex's last lifeline intended to allow him to recover from his injuries when the Fortress of Solitude collapsed on him and dominate Earth. A vengeful Lex had Winslow Schott put a Kryptonite bomb on the roof of the Daily Planet, forcing Lana to choose between Clark and the people of Metropolis. Lana chose to defuse the bomb to save Metropolis which devastated Clark. This infected Lana's super powered nano skin with Kryptonite on a permanent basis and as a result of this, she could no longer be near Clark. Lana left Smallville to protect Clark, as well as went to go on her own quest in protecting the world. Years later Lana is found in Africa protecting local villages from African warlords, disguising herself as a vigilante called The Angel of the Plateau. While still in Africa, Lana's code name for the Watchtower is changed to Valkyrie.

  • In the original Superboy stories, Lana was the girl who lived next door to the Kent family in Smallville, and was a romantic interest of Superboy. Lana often behaved like a younger version of Lois, spending much of her time trying to prove that Superboy and Clark Kent were one and the same. At one point, Lana once rescued an insect-like alien trapped by a fallen tree in Smallville. In gratitude, the alien gave her a "bio-genetic" ring which allowed Lana to gain insect (and insect-like, such as arachnids) characteristics. Lana created a yellow honeybee-like costume and mask, and took the name "Insect Queen", under which identity Lana had several adventures. Lana also had various adventures with Superboy, and several with the futuristic superhero team the Legion of Super-Heroes. After Clark and Lana graduated from high school, Lana went to college, and eventually became a television reporter; as an adult, she became a rival to Lois Lane for Superman's romantic affection in various 1960s stories, often appearing in the title Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane.
  • Lana Lang is a fictional, supporting character in DC Comics' Superman series. Created by writer Bill Finger and artist John Sikela, she first appears in Superboy #10 (September-October 1950). Lana traditionally has been Superman's romantic interest when they were teenagers in Smallville. In the Silver Age, she regularly appeared in series featuring the character’s teenaged self, Superboy. She also often appeared as an adult in Superman series, vying with current love interest Lois Lane for his attention. In the modern DC Comics continuity, she and Clark Kent were and still are close friends with a certain degree of romantic tension between them. For a time, Lana is married to Pete Ross, Clark Kent's best friend as a youth, and has a son named Clark by Pete. Lana has been featured in most other media adaptations of Superboy or Superman as a teenager, including the series Smallville where she is played by Kristin Kreuk. She has also appeared in many adaptations of Superman, although her role is generally smaller. An exception is the 1983 film Superman III, where she was played by Annette O'Toole (who also plays Martha Kent in the TV show Smallville) and was the character’s main romantic interest. Prior to Smallville, Lana was a regular cast member in the half hour live-action Superboy television series, played by Stacy Haiduk in the entire 100 episode run. Up to this point in time, it was this series that gave the Lana Lang character more exposure than any other media adaptation of the Superman saga. The show ran from 1988–1992 in first-run syndication. Lana is one of several Superman characters with the alliterative initials "LL", including Lex Luthor, Lionel Luthor, Lightning Lad, Lightning Lass, Lena Luthor (whose surname was changed to "Thorul" in the Silver Age, to distance herself from her criminal brother), Lois Lane, Letitia Lerner, Lori Lemaris, Lucy Lane, Lara Lor-Van (Superman's Kryptonian mother), and Linda Lee (aka Supergirl). Even Superman's birth name is Kal-El, and his father's Jor-El.

  • However, in Lana's eyes, something more existed than just friendship. An attractive girl, she was always able to garner the attention of any man she was interested in, except Clark Kent. He had always considered her a good friend, and though the two did date for a time, the relationship didn't last. While she vocally expressed her continued level of interest in Clark, the two never permanently clicked; regardless, they remained close throughout high school. Lana went on to become a fashion designer, and achieved international fame with her fashion house, Lana Lang Fashions (or LL for short), with one building in Metropolis and at least offices in Paris and Gotham City. She was known as a jetsetter; keeping residences in several cities. Her celebrity status, combined with her indisputable physical beauty, caught the attention of Lex Luthor, who, in classic Luthor fashion, sought out and began a relationship with her immediately. Unlike many of his dealings, their relationship was genuine; Luthor actually expressed gratitude to Superman when he saved Lana from an attempted murder. Despite being a famous designer, she kept an eye on Clark's whereabouts over the years and correctly deduced he was Superman when both of them appeared in Metropolis at the same time. However, like any other relationship, things change. Lana learned of Luthor's less-than-admirable qualities, and began informing Superman of his behind the scenes activities despite his objections to the danger she was putting herself in. Unbeknownst to Lana, Mercy Graves had been observing her for some time, and informed Luthor of the relationship Lana and Superman appeared to share. Though he initially doubted Mercy's findings, his opinion changed as he saw Lana kiss Superman after revealing her feelings for him. Ever quick to anger, Luthor quickly arranged for Lana to be assassinated. Lana, thinking she was again aiding Superman, fell victim to Luthor's ploy and had sent Superman to Central City to stop another arms deal. Alone and trapped within a lead refinery, Lana was drawing her final curtain. Fortunately, Superman intervened. Never having left for Central City, he instead trailed Lana and aided her escape (twice, incidentally). Lana left for a show in Paris. She briefly returned to Metropolis to help Superman explain away the apparent murder of Clark Kent by providing him with a cover story and alibi that she had picked up and cared for an injured Clark Kent after he escaped a murder attempt. She promptly contacted Lois Lane, who was shocked to find Clark alive and equally angry at the relationship the two seemed to share. Lana returned to Metropolis once more for another fashion show that focused on her company's new line of swimwear. At this event, her star model Darci Mason headlined the lineup. Events became complicated however when Darci was revealed to be not only a robot, but a creation of the Toyman. Lana discovered Darci's origins when Lana surprised Darci trying to repair her damaged face with a blowtorch in the workshop at Lana's fashion house. Lana attended Superman's funeral after his presumed death at the hands of the Toyman, sitting with the Kent family.
