Frank Loder was an FBI agent who worked for the Luthors.
At first, Lex's lawyer contacted him. Lex was being set up to take the fall for eight homicides committed by Adam Knight at Metron Pharmaceuticals. Lex wanted to make a deal. If Loder would get the Metropolis Police Department out of his mansion, and then get the district attorney to drop the charges and grant him immunity, then Lex would help him bring down Lionel. Loder accepted and established surveillance on Lionel.
After the Talon is bugged by Lionel's men, Lex confronts Loder, thinking him responsible. When Lionel shows up, Lex claims that Loder is auditioning for the role of his butler.
Agent Loder placed Lionel under arrest. Even in jail, Lionel expected him to continue investigating Clark. He refused, but he went to the Kent Farm anyway and was caught listening in on their conversations. Lindsay Harrison killed him for that by vaporizing him and his car.
