Satan the Wanderer

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

“Where have you come from?”

Satan answered

“From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”

-Job 1:6-7

Satan was a son of an egomanical God and was forced to roam the Earth. Satan deserves the most love of the entities in the bible. I’ve talked about this before, but I just like this verse a lot. God sits on a high throne and snubs the Earth, while Satan is the explorer who tries to learn about us. He is the one who came down to our level, and he is a truth-seeker.

Whoever wrote this episode of Smallville must have also decided YHWH can’t be trusted. Lex Luther praises the human antagonist here in a Native American legend for having the courage to fight against Superman.
