Geoff Johns, aka The Teflon Tailback, was a college football star at Metropolis University and a metahuman with the ability to paralyze others simply by touching them. He was the main antagonist in the Season Four episode "Recruit" of the WB TV series Smallville.
Geoff Johns was a native to Smallville, who became infected by meteor rock, during his childhood. In high school, Geoff played for the Smallville Crows as their star player. However, he never used his metahuman ability to paralyze people by touching them on the field. However things drastically changed when he attended college at Metropolis University as college football was more competitive and he started using his powers. Geoff feared that his metahuman abilities would be discovered and he would be kicked off the team for it, so he tried to avoid taking mandatory drug tests. Even going so far as to paying students to acquire their urine samples.
During their fall semester, Coop, another player on the team, discovered what Geoff was doing. At a frat party, Coop was competing in a drinking contest with Lois Lane. Geoff tried to break it up due to upcoming physicals but Coop continues and lost against Lois. After the party a drunken Coop attempts to make his move on Lois. Once he grabs a hold of her shoulder, Lois kicks him to ground and walks away. Geoff secretly paralyzed him and took him to the hospital and framed Lois for the incident. Geoff returned to Smallville to recruit Clark to come play for the team at Met U. Geoff showed up at the Kent Farm to escort Clark to Metropolis University, after they stopped by Smallville High, and encouraged him that he will be a great football player there. At Smallville High, Geoff went to say hi to his former coach Wayne Quigley while Clark met with Lois and Chloe in the hallway. Before the conversation can go any further, Geoff returns to bring Clark to Metropolis University.
On the ride to Metropolis, Geoff shows Clark his luxury truck with a tracking system and took him to the Bulldogs Stadium where a large welcoming party awaited for Clark. The Bulldog football players, cheerleaders, coaches and the marching band all attended to convince Clark to join Met U. Geoff then took Clark to the sorority house of the Tri-Alpha where a party had been thrown just for him. Geoff left Clark at the sorority house and went to the hospital to visit Coop. At the hospital, Coop is visited by Geoff as he sees Coop's paralysis is wearing off. Geoff suspects that when Coop regains consciousness, he will tell the world about his secret. So Geoff induces more paralysis and then smothers him.
At Met U, Lois and Clark are looking for Geoff at his dormitory. Geoff, teary-eyed, informs them that the coach just called to inform them that Coop is dead.
