Many fans of Smallville have dismissed Lillian Luthor as a sweet, saintly dead woman - little more than Lex's mother and that chick who gave him a cool watch and a box. However, this is a character who makes her presence strongly felt without ever appearing on screen. As much as Lionel can be seen in Lex's ambition and moral ambiguity, so can we see Lillian in his passion. And surely, a woman who both Lex and Lionel still admire and love must have been extraordinary. We have only hints of her character and as any proper geeks, it is left to us to reconstruct this essential but underdeveloped character.
