Over the past year, writer Bryan Q. Miller and a rotating team of artists have been slowly building the universe of “Smallville” into its own, far-reaching superhero continuity in the “Smallville Season 11” digital-first comics series.
In August, that reach will extend a little bit further. “Smallville Season 11″ #16 will introduce one of the DC Universe’s top-tier characters into the mix, and while she may not necessarily play the role she does in the New 52, she’s sure to shake things up. I asked Miller what’s in store, and just who this character, a princess from an island, if you were wondering, is.
MTV Geek: From the start of “Smallville Season 11,” you’ve been introducing a lot of DC Universe characters into the world of “Smallville” (Monsieur Mallah!). Was that one of your main goals from the start, to make the Smallville U look more like the larger DCU?
Bryan Q. Miller: The series, in hindsight, can be looked at in chapters, or phases. High school (Seasons 1-4) – like any teenager, Clark’s day to day problems consume his life, regardless of what his responsibilities may or may not be. He’s struggling to be who HE feels he needs to be, regardless of what his parents, friends, etc. tell him. Then College/post-High School (Seasons 5-7) – Old enough to vote. Old enough to go to war. Not yet old enough to drink. The time when you begin to really sow the seeds for what will eventually become your adult personality. Then the “adult” era (Seasons 8-10) – Pro-active Clark. He starts taking chances. Takes a few wrong turns on the road to hero (by way of vigilante). But accepts his mistakes. He learns from them. He’s determined at this point to be a better man. And, all the while, his world becomes larger. Magic. Sci-fi concepts. The Multiverse.
