This reinterpretation of the enduring Superman mythology and its classic characters blends realism and adventure into an exciting action series. The seventh season of Smallville brings exciting guest stars from Superman history, including Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) and Helen Slater (Supergirl), plus storylines of Krypton and the El family, as Clark discovers more about his home planet, who his parents were, what his future holds and why he was sent to Earth.
But the biggest trial for Clark may come in the form of his 19-year-old Kryptonian cousin, Kara. Kara is fascinated with Earth's culture and has difficulty remembering to hide her powers from the world. Her youthful abandon lands her in many precarious situations and puts her on Lex's radar.

Kara left Krypton as a teenager, simultaneously with the infant Clark, and has unknowingly been in suspended animation ever since crash-landing in the dam, so she is now younger than him. Despite Kara's arrival, a despondent Clark decides that, without Lana, there is nothing keeping him in Smallville, so he heads to the Fortress of Solitude to begin his training. However, Jor-El tells him that Kara's father, Jor-El's brother, was evil, and Kara must be watched closely. Clark must stay in Smallville to find out why she came to Earth.
