Lex Luthor, who is portrayed by Michael Rosenbaum, was a series regular on Smallville from the first season until the seventh. Lex, of course, grows up to be Superman's infamous arch-nemesis.
Lex: Clark...do you believe a man can fly?
Clark: Sure. In a plane.
Lex: No, I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about soaring through the clouds, with nothing but air beneath you.

Lex: I did. After the accident, when my heart stopped. It was the most exhilarating two minutes of my life. I flew over Smallville, and for the first time, I didn't see a dead end.

Lex: Because he could.
