Hanison was a fence in Metropolis in the WB TV series Smallville.
He appeared as the main antagonist in the Fourth Season episode "Run".
He was portrayed by Ben Ratner.
Hanison worked in Metropolis doing shady dealings in stolen goods as a fence. Bart Allen, a street urchin often dealt with Hanison although he often cheated Bart out of the stolen goods' true value.
Bart attempted to sell stolen personal items in Suicide Slums, but Hanison was unwilling to give him a fair deal. When Hanison was momentarily distracted, Bart used his super speed and stole the goods and the money, putting himself on Hanison's radar.
Later, Bart stole a Fourteenth Century manuscript with Kryptonian symbols drawn along the border from Lex Luthor's mansion.
Lex wasn't worried though however, because he knew all the fences in the area and figured he'll find it when the thief tried to sell it.
When Bart tried to sell the manuscript to Hanison, Lex arrived. Lex realized the thief was just a kid and told Hanison to let Bart go, but Hanison disagreed calling him a freak and knocked Bart out and his goons took out Lex.
Before they can kill them both, Clark arrived on the scene and saves Bart and Lex. Clark threw Hanison through the roof and he landed outside unconscious. Bart, however, turned against Clark and used a meteor rock on him weakening him. Clark pleads with Bart to do the right thing, but Bart super speeds away.
Before he does though, Bart closed the lead box with the meteor rock so that Clark could recover. The police arrived but Clark super-speeds away and Hanison and his goons were arrested while Lex woke up not witnessing what occurred.
