TV Guide has the first official look at Smallville's Chloe Sullivan from her long-delayed DC Universe debut in Action Comics #893

The character, played by Alison Mack in the TV series, will be introduced in the Jimmy Olsen co-feature by Nick Spencer and R.B. Silva that kicks off with this month’s Action Comics.

"She's a very successful and dedicated reporter and a major player in Metropolis," the comic book writer told TV Guide. "It's a pretty different continuity, which I think has always been the challenging part of bringing Chloe into the DC Comics Universe."

"She's never existed in the comics before, so in order to make a part of Clark's life when he was a teenager in Smallville, you'd have to do it somewhat retroactively, and it would age Chloe as a character a lot, since Superman is well past that part of his life in the books."

When quizzed about the role she'll have alongside Jimmy Olsen in the comic book series Spencer added, "She and Jimmy have a previous relationship and that causes him to embark on a huge adventure that takes him across space and alternate realities to prove something to himself and her."
