This season of Smallville, even though is half-way over, doesn’t show any signs of slowing down with another DC villain joining the ranks of Metallo and Doomsday with an appearance on the show: Silver Banshee! TV Guide reports that Odessa Rae from TV’s Leverage, will portray the Silver Banshee as well as her alter ego, Siobhan McDougal in “Escape”.
But that’s only half of the news.
Annette O’Toole will be returning. That’s right, Martha Kent, who hasn’t been seen since the 6th season when she assumed Jonathan’s seat on the Senate. She is scheduled for at least one appearance with a possibility of another sometime down the line. It’ll be interesting to see how Martha reacts as her little boy has become quite the man these past seasons. I’ve always been fond of O’Toole as Martha and I have to say looks pretty good for 57 and is certainly a bit different from other Marthas in past TV productions.
Though, I have to wonder something. In Superman mythology, Martha is the one who made Superman’s legendary attire. I wonder in her appearance she mentions that awful dark garb he’s wearing and opts for something a bit more…colorful.
