Smallville fans remember the end of season 7 well — it’s when the superhero show bid farewell to series regular Michael Rosenbaum and, subsequently, Lex Luthor.

EP Greg Beeman perhaps says it best: “Every once and a while a part comes along that an actor was born to play, and he was born to play Lex.”
