Chloe Sullivan is one of Clark Kent's closest friends from the time he lived in Smallville. She's also Lois Lane's cousin, and has borrowed her cousin's name in the past. She is a Meteor Freak, and has served as a host to Brainiac for a time, temporarily gaining advanced technological abilities. For many years, she served as Clark's sidekick of sorts, using her amazing internet skills to help him solve mysteries and figure out how to overcome problems.

Chloe was first introduced in the pilot episode of the TV series Smallville, and remained a cast member on that series for 9 out of its ten seasons, and remained a recurring guest star for the tenth. She also starred in her own series of webisodes, the Chloe Chronicles. After a brief cameo in Superman: Secret Origin, she made her first full appearance in main comics continuity in Action Comics 893.
