Jeremy Creek, AKA The Electric Scarecrow, is a one-shot villain appearing on the WB television series Smallville. He is the first meteor-infected human with the ability to manipulate electricity who encountered and fought Clark Kent until he was cured and was the first freak-of-the-week in the series.
He was portrayed by Adrian McMorran who played Michael Amar in Arrow.
In 1989, Jeremy was chosen to be Smallville High School's annual "Scarecrow," the victim of a cruel prank by football jocks who stripped him to his underwear and strung him up in a cornfield on a cross with an "S" painted on his chest. While on the cross, Jeremy saw a 9-year-old Lex Luthor and begged him to save him. A moment later, the first meteor crash-landed nearby, causing a shockwave that hit Jeremy and Lex. Jeremy was subsequently left in a coma.
Fifteen years later, Jeremy awoke from his coma without having aged and with the power to control electricity, and he set out to gain vengeance against the jocks who bullied him years earlier, beginning with a mechanic. Later, he watched as Clark Kent was taken by Whitney Fordman and a few jocks to be that year's Scarecrow.
Jeremy found Clark strung-up just as he was just before the 1989 meteor shower and lamented that nothing had changed before heading off to kill the students at the Homecoming Dance. Clark managed to get free and confronted Jeremy at Smallville High. The two battled, and Jeremy ended up losing his memory.
