- "If you'd like, I could rub [your hands] for you. Nothing heats up a body like friction. " - Sean to Chloe Sullivan, Cool
Sean was always known to play with the affections of teenage girls, as he made a move on Chloe Sullivan.
Powers and Abilities
- Heat Absorption: After falling into a frozen, kryptonite-exposed lake, Sean Kelvin gained the ability to suck and or remove heat from all living beings including Kryptonian Clark Kent. This usually killed humans, although Clark Kent quickly regained consciousness through his healing factor. He can turn both fire and water to ice by absorbing all the heat from them.
- Durability: Due to his his accident, Sean also gained some degree of superhuman durability. This was strongly corroborated when he was thrown across the pool by Clark, but was largely unaffected, as well as purposely electrocuting himself with high-voltage electricity with no injuries. This absence of pain and increased resistance against impact might be connected to his altered physiology.
While playing football, he fell into an icy lake, infested with kryptonite, and gets trapped within it. He manages to free himself, but his skin was turned blue with cold. By reaching his shivering hand at a weakly bonfire, he absorbs the heat out of the fire and warms himself. Sean realizes that by stealing the body heat of others, he stays warm for at least a day, trading the survival of others for his own.
Sean pays a visit to his girlfriend, Jenna Barnum and steals her body heat, rendering her to an ice statue as she crashes to the floor, shattered into a thousand pieces. He then set his sights on Chloe, but she was saved by Clark Kent.
By absorbing Clark's heat, he is strengthened, but Clark manages to survive it. As he tries to drain the heat from other people, Clark manages to hurl him into a nearby pond. Sean, unable to control his power, sucks the heat from the water around him, encasing himself in ice.
Chloe and Pete Ross discovered a secret underground laboratory built by Dr. Donovan Jamison, Dr. Steven Hamilton, and Dr. Arthur Walsh. The doctors were mining and using kryptonite to try and find a cure for meteor freaks. They had the bodies of several meteor freaks, including the frozen body of Sean Kelvin. Sean was barely alive, encased in a block of ice.
Chloe and Pete caused an explosion. As they left the lab, they saw Sean's block of ice melting as they climbed out to safety. His current whereabouts are unknown, but it is unknown if he is alive, however, due to the heat of the fire caused by the explosion, it can be assumed he survived. It is unknown whether the explosion killed him though.
- Season One: Cool
- Chloe Chronicles (Mentioned only)
- Season Three: Extinction (Mentioned only)
- Season Five: Fade (Mentioned only)
- Sean's profile name was shown in Vengeance Chronicles and Fade.
- It is unknown if there was other victims of Sean's aside from Jenna Barnum, including his own parents who were not seen in this episode. If he did kill his parents he wouldn't have been the first meteor freak to do so, as Greg Arkin killed his own mum and Tina Greer killed her mum, Rose Greer.
- Sean's power is somewhat involuntary, as he automatically absorbed all the heat as soon as Clark hurled him into the pond.
- Degrees Kelvin is sometimes used to describe very cold temperatures. Sean's last name is a reference to the power he gained.
- Sean's powers are the same of a villain in the comics, Killer Frost. Both were able to absorb heat and create ice, the only difference is the that Frost could stay alive without absorbing heat while it was Sean's way of survival. Also Killer Frost was more experienced in using her powers creating blizzards and ice constructs while Sean was only capable of passively freezing things.
