How many times now have we all sat through superhero origin stories? At least dozens, right? And every year there seems to be two or three more to add to that pile. We all know the drill: a seemingly normal guy or girl happens upon or is born with something that manifests in special abilities that said person must then master just in time to confront an equally powerful foe. Sure, there are slight variations for each hero or team of heroes, but by and large this is the most reliable formula in any genre of cinema.
Oh Allison Mack, how we’ve missed you. Season ten of Smallville has been wonderful so far but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t missing your presence as the great Chloe Sullivan. So thanks for coming back, if only for a little while.
