As Alexander Luthor (Lucas Grabeel) becomes the focus in this week’s episode, “Scion,” it’s going to take a battle to find out who decides the fate of this “special” Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) creation.

With Lois (Erica Durance), Clark (Tom Welling) and Tess (Cassidy Freeman) fighting for the side of good, Lionel (John Glover) appears to be outmatched. Of course, when it comes down to “family” (or obtaining absolute power), one can never underestimate the lengths that a Luthor will go to in order to come out on top.

Since the first introduction of the Lex Luthor clone, Alexander Luthor, in the Smallville season 10 premiere, fans have been wondering what secrets may be concealed within the human experiment. Following the revelation that needles cannot pierce his skin, Alexander Luthor’s destiny was all-but spelled out. Now we know that Alexander Luthor is Conner Kent – AKA Superboy!
