Biography

Dichotic

Ian Randall was an intelligent metahuman student who hoped to graduate early and leave Smallville by using his ability to duplicate himself. He gained his power from the 1989 meteor shower that struck Smallville. Ian had high hopes of going to one of America's premier colleges. With his ability, Ian was literally in two places at once and started taking additional classes at Smallville High that coincided with his other classes. However, Ian's ambitions were in danger of falling apart, when the shop teacher at Smallville High School was going to give him a low grade. Ian responded by killing the shop teacher, while giving himself a better grade. Ian approaches Chloe at the office of the Torch telling her that he's been taking night classes and extra-credit work to graduate as a sophomore and get into an ivy-league college.

Chloe asks for an interview, and they talk at The Talon. He asks her out, and Clark arrives just as Ian and Chloe are leaving. He tells Lana that he has to break their study date to do some of his dad's errands but Ian offers to help Lana instead. Ian goes into a back room, and produces an identical clone of himself. The two Ians then leave to go on their respective dates with Chloe and Lana. Clark started to become suspicious of Ian when he began dating Chloe and Lana back-to-back. Clark confronts Ian, and accuses him of using Chloe and Lana to win his scholarship. He asks Ian about the C he got in shop, and Ian simply says that the teacher never posted grades. Clark and Pete went to the metal shop classroom to look around and found Mr. Frankel's body in a cabinet. Suddenly a barrel of chemicals tipped over and the floor lights on fire. The pair see Ian running away.

Clark later went to Chloe's house to find Ian and her kissing. He tells them what he saw, but Ian claims he's been at her house for three hours. Initially he deflected Clark's suspicions of him by claiming that Clark was just jealous, with his duplicating abilities providing the perfect alibi. Later Clark discovered that Ian was taking classes at community college at the same time of day he was in school at Smallville High. Both Clark and Pete decided to follow Ian to see how he is in two places at the same time. They page him with the girls' pagers and he arrives at both the Talon and Chloe's house at exactly the same time. Clark calls Chloe to warn her, but she doesn't answer.

Instead, Lana comes in and they realize they might both be dating Ian at the same time. When he shows up, they confront him, and he realizes Clark and Pete are onto him. He locks the door, and he and his double corner the girls.
