c)Dead e.g. Jimmy Henry James Olsen, Lionel Luthor
d)Amnesia e.g. Lex Luthor
Did I miss anyone?
Like pretty much everyone he's met in Smallville, in Metropolis, and the DP.
They even tried to make it seem like he was a dork/nobody in high school with the reunion episode. It's hard to forget a guy who dated the most popular girl in school, was the high school quarterback at some point and lead the school to a championship, and was best friends with one of the most famous people in the world. And that's all before spending much time in Metropolis, working with people at the DP, having a wedding, etc.
SV and MOS seemed to make things more harder for Clark to hide in plain sight to me.
