Status Deceased

Brendan Nash was a psychotic metahuman teenager who was a student at Smallville High School.

Powers and Abilities

He had the ability to freeze people and turn them into wax. He could also turn them back.

Upon his death, the frozen people would turn back to normal.

Early life

His father was a construction worker and owned a factory.

Brendan had a fear of leaving Smallville High after graduation, because he wanted everyone of significance to be there with him. Because he wasn't accepted into any colleges, he wanted to be with all those that mattered. Brendan was the school photographer at the Smallville Torch. He coerced his father into making a replica of Smallville High's interior inside one of his factories, threatening to turn his wife into a statue.

Season Four

He kidnapped five students: Haley Timmonds, Wendell Johnson, Delia Watkins, Chloe Sullivan, and Lana Lang, and placed them in his Smallville High. He kept a close watch over them and had them play along like they were still in school. He threatened to turn them into statues if anyone did not go along with it. However, Clark Kent and Lois Lane came to their rescue and managed to stop him. Brendan was not able to turn Clark into a statue. Instead, Brendan's power reflected back onto him, fatally turning him into a wax statue. With Brendan dead, his waxified victims revived.



  • According to the High School Yearbook, Brendan was the most likely to "Stay in Smallville forever".[1]
  • He shares a name with a dogged and unflappable left-hander and valuable new addition to the West Indies Test cricket team batting line-up.[2]
  • Before he died, Brendan warned Clark that his loved ones would leave him and his life won't be the way he planned.
