Bio: Wade Mahaney had been a former Smallville High jock, and leader of a gang of kryptonite-tatted thieves. In high school, he and his friends Scott Bowman and Derek Fox had been all-star athletes, with offers of full scholarships from at least a dozen schools, until Wade had blown out his knee their senior year and Scott had gotten caught up in drugs. After graduating in '96, the three had each faced bleak futures, and had decided to turn to a life of crime. By early 2002, they had discovered that tattoos composed of liquid krpyonite inked into their skin would allow them to temporarily phase through people and objects, and had used this knowledge to rob Smallville Savings and Loan, as well as Lex Luthor's mansion. Though the tattoos would last them about an hour each time they'd ink themselves, the tattoos had started to fade sooner and sooner, giving them less and less time in which to commit their crimes. Hoping to rectify this, they'd recruited Whitney Fordman, who at the time had been a student at Smallville High and a jock facing the same bleak future as Wade and his gang. Initiating him into their group with a tattoo, they'd proceeded to blackmail Lex with a disk they'd found in his mansion, but Clark Kent had intervened, convincing Whitney to turn on Wade and his crew. Furious, Wade had held Whitney underneath a suspended car, relying on his newest tattoo to save him. However, just as the car had dropped, the tattoo had faded, allowing Clark to superspeed and save Whitney. In the process, though, Wade had been crushed by the car, killing him, before both of his remaining friends had been taken into custody.
