Dr. Pamela Black was a scientist who developed a rapid-healing drug called RL65 in the WB/CW Television series Smallville.
She appeared as the secondary antagonist in the Season 6 episode "Rage".
She was portrayed by Carrie Genzel.
Pamela Black was hired by Oliver Queen to develop the drug RL65 which was capable of rapidly healing those who used it. Oliver wanted to use the drug to have an advantage in his crime-fighting career as the Green Arrow. Motivated by greed, Dr. Black mass-produced the serum.
However, the drug had a side effect of increasing its user's aggressive tendencies.
Oliver paid a visit to Pamela who tells him that she was through with the project because the results were dangerous and the test mice were showing adverse side effects.
He countered that he was paying her, so she was not allowed to quit. She warned Oliver to stop using it, but Oliver was unconcerned.
Lex Luthor had also paid Black to continue development of the drug, but after seeing firsthand how Oliver was being affected, Black decided to discontinue and destroyed the remaining samples.
Lex told her he couldn't let her do that. Oliver as well as Clark and Chloe later found Dr. Black's body amidst the ruins of her laboratory.
Chloe thought the Green Arrow killed Dr. Black but Clark did not want to believe this. Oliver speculated that Lex had her killed for her refusal. The Metropolis Police Department later arrested a kid from the halfway house for her murder, though Clark suspected Lex was behind it.
