    I would be OK with a GA series even without using Hartley or following the continuity of the Smallville series. Because GA was cool even before Smallville. And you couldn't do a Hartley version continuous with Smallville if you didn't also bring in Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan-Queen. And while I would love to see that, I can understand how complicated that becomes.

    Spin-offs usually don't work. Rule of thumb: for a series to succeed, it has to be its own thing, exist within it's own universe.

    Smallville worked in large part because it existed within its own universe, had its own unique take on the story. It drew inspiration and material from almost every version of Superman, including dozens of characters and scenarios from DC Comics. But even so, Smallville did it its own way, to the consternation of some, and to the delight of others.

    Smallville's individuality, and its extremely long run, make it difficult for new series to spin off from it. All the actors and personnel have grown older and have moved on with their lives and careers.

    That said, I'm still holding out for a series starring Phil Morris as the Martian Manhunter. That would be cool! Shaft with superpowers. Yessssssssss!

    Michael Rosenbaum is the best live action Lex Luthor so far. Also I still love the scenes between him and John Glover and Him and Tom Welling.

    I probably would be more interested in this if Hartley was attached.

    Yup, I can agree with that. I even did a long-format treatment of the character over at the Superman home page.
