Lionel thought of everything. First the dope, then getting the window fixed, then setting up the sweatshop. All little details to push you over the edge.
~ Edge to Lex, revealing Lionel's scheme to make Lex look insane, "Shattered".

Morgan Edge was a major antagonist that appeared on the WB/CW television series Smallville. He was a major crime lord in Metropolis and an old friend of Lionel Luthor.

He was portrayed by the late Rutger Hauer in his first two appearances, who also played Lothos in Buffy: The Vampire Slayer film, Roy Batty in Blade Runner, Master Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts II, Wulfgar in Nighthawks, John Ryder in The Hitcher, the Huntsman in The 10th Kingdom and Patrick Henry Roark in Sin City. In his final appearance, he was portrayed by Patrick Bergin, who also portrayed Aidan Maguire in EastEnders and Kevin O'Donnell in Patriot Games.

Biography

Early life

Edge met Lionel in Suicide Slums, and the two of them became close friends. They decided that he and Lionel should kill Lachlan and Eliza, Lionel's parents, in order to claim the insurance money on them and the property.

Edge planted a bomb in the Luthors' apartment and killed them; Lionel made sure he had an alibi so that he wasn't connected to the murder. Edge and Lionel then split the money and started their careers: Lionel started LuthorCorp while Edge became a crime boss. Later Edge became associated with Intergang.

Exile

After Clark Kent, as Kal, interrupts a bank robbery by Edge's goons and steals the money from the heist, Edge later approaches Kal in his apartment and offers him a job. Kal turns him down, but after Lana Lang finds him and informs his parents, he decides he can use the money to disappear.

He meets with Edge at Club Atlantis to accept his offer. Edge asks him to break into Lionel's office at LuthorCorp and steal a package from a titanium-reinforced safe.

Phoenix

Edge meets with Lionel in his office, and the two old friends share a drink. They talk about the stolen package, and Lionel demands that Edge return it to him in twenty-four hours or he'll have Edge arrested.

Edge then tracks Kal, now back to normal as Clark, to Smallville, where Clark finds him waiting inside his limo outside the Kent Farm.

He demands the package, and when Clark tells him he doesn't have it, he prepares to call the police on Clark who, in a fit of anger, rips the limo door off, hauls Edge out, and slams him against the limo, telling him that the package is gone before ordering him to leave Smallville and never return.

Edge seemingly complies, but Clark later finds him in the barn, where Edge's henchmen are holding his parents Jonathan and Martha hostage. Clark then uses a piece of Green Kryptonite to cut his arm and pour some of his blood into a jar to give to Edge.

Edge then asks what he's supposed to do with Clark's blood, and Clark tells him it's the package that Lionel wants (the package that Clark stole earlier turned out to be a vial of Clark's Kryptonian blood).

Edge takes the blood and meets with Lionel at the Metropolis docks, where Lionel confirms that the sample is the genuine article. He then tells Lionel that he can provide him with the blood's source, drawing Lionel's interest since he doesn't know the source. Morgan took Clark captive, with the help of a meteor rock, with intent to sell boy to Lionel.

Edge's thugs bring a weakened Clark to Metropolis in the back of a truck for the hand-off, but Clark uses his heat vision to create an explosion, which destroys the truck. An enraged Lionel accuses Edge of setting him up to be killed, and Edge protests that isn't the case. A shoot-out occurs, and Edge is shot and falls into the river, presumed dead.

Shattered

It turned out that Edge is still alive, and has plastic surgery to alter his appearance so he can hide from Lionel. He also carried a string of Kryptonite beads in case he ever runs into Clark again.

Lionel's son, Lex, tracks Edge down and offers to help the crime lord start a new life if he confesses his role in the murder of Lex's grandparents. Edge confesses on tape. However, it later turns out that he conspired with Lionel to break Lex's fragile psyche and discredit his testimony.

Lex tracks Edge down and confronts him. Edge claims it was Lionel's idea to make Lex crazy rather than kill him. Clark shows up to stop Lex from shooting Edge, but is incapacitated by Edge's kryptonite beads. When Edge seems to know Clark, Lex figures Clark is in on the conspiracy with Edge and Lionel. Edge beats up on Clark for awhile until a deranged Lex shoots the gang lord and prepares to shoot Clark.

When Edge slips away, Lex leaves Clark to finish Edge off, who comes at Lex with a car. Lex empties his gun into him, but the car doesn't stop.

Lex then shoots Edge several more times, but Clark super-speeds in front of Edge's car and blocks it from hitting Lex, revealing his powers to Lex, who's then found by Dr. Claire Foster and her men, who take Lex away to Belle Reve Sanitarium.

Quotes

You came to my club flashing money, and then you interrupt my guys at the bank. I take it that was not a coincidence.
~ Morgan Edge to Kal.
You've made quite a reputation for yourself. I set up this test so I could see with my own eyes if you were man or myth. And clearly, you're both.
~ Morgan Edge to Kal.
No matter how many bullets bounce off you, Kal, you're still a kid and I'm the biggest crime boss of Metropolis.
~ Morgan Edge to Kal.
I've got this one job. It'll make you Midas rich. So when you are tired of playing in the little league, you know where to find me.
~ Morgan Edge giving Kal his proposition.
I need you to break into a secure building. The office on the sixtieth floor has a very valuable package. It's in a titanium-reinforced steel safe. Not a job for mere mortals.
~ Morgan Edge to Kal.
Nothing ever changes, Lionel. Not even when you dress it up in a designer suit or a penthouse office.
~ Morgan Edge to Lionel.
Like looking at a stranger.
~ Morgan Edge after having plastic surgery.
You on something, Lex? Because, frankly, you sound delusional.
~ Morgan Edge to Lex, after Lex tells him he knows he and Lionel schemed to kill Lionel's parents.
I blow the building. Lionel gets rid of his bastard father and his gin-soaked mother. The slumlord splits the insurance payment with us. Lionel uses his cut for his first start-up. And the rest is history.
~ Morgan Edge confession.
Your father's the one who screwed up. If we'd done it my way, you'd be dead by now. [...] You think you could've escaped if I wanted to kill you? It was your father's idea to make you look crazy instead. [...] It's true, Lex. Lionel's gone soft in his old age. He was willing to lose his parents, but he couldn't bear to lose another child.
~ Morgan Edge revealing his part in Lionel's plan to Lex.
You think I'd be in digs like this if I hadn't cut a deal with your old man? You gotta admit, it was an elegant plan. Just like when he was a kid. Either you crack so completely that you can't form a coherent sentence or anything you say sounds like the ravings of a madman. But he doesn't have to win, Lex. We can bring him down... together.
~ Morgan Edge to Lex.
Hi, Kal. I had a feeling we'd see each other again. That's why I've been carrying these around.
~ Morgan Edge to Clark, before beating him with Kryptonite rosary beads.
