Sasha Woodman, aka The Queen Bee, is a recurring antagonist appearing in the WB/CW TV series Smallville.
Powers and Abilities
Sasha had the ability to control bees after being stung by a Kryptonite-infected hive. Her abilities were later supposedly removed by Dr. Curtis Knox.
Sasha was obsessed with becoming Class President, and she repeatedly stated that her parents expected it of her. She was stung more than a thousand times in Shuster's Gorge (the location of the deepest meteor hit) by Africanized bees, which were apparently infected by Kryptonite.
Although allergic to bee stings, Sasha somehow survived the attack and later discovered that she had the power to control the bees as if she were the hive queen.
She ran as a candidate in her freshman year, but according to Pete Ross, "she's more of a worker than a leader". When Clark Kent entered the election, Sasha saw them planning and ripped down one of Clark's posters in anger.
When she went home, she went into the shed in the back yard. It is decorated with a banner reading "Campaign Headquarters".
She adds Clark's campaign poster to her collection of the opposition. The ceiling of the shed is covered with enormous honeycombs. A swarm of bees forms the shape of her face to cheer her up.
Sasha tries to talk Felice into dropping out of the race. Felice blows her off and Sasha warns that she did ask nicely. Later, Principal Kwan discovers Felice in her car covered in bees.
She used her powers to get rid of her competition, putting two students in the hospital. Clark and Pete realize that this is more than a coincidence. They remember that bees attacked Sasha last year in Shuster's Gorge, the deepest meteor crater in Lowell County. They theorize that she is now controlling them. When Sasha asks Clark to drop out of the race, he confronts her about the bees.
At the Talon, Lana is helping Clark with his speech when a swarm of bees attacks. But Clark is able to get Lana to safety and draw the bees away. Clark and Chloe theorize that Sasha has somehow become the hive queen. If she is defeated in the election, her scent will change and the bees will turn on her.
Sasha goes to the Kent Farm to meet Clark. Clark confronts her again about controlling the bees and Sasha calls the bees to attack Martha. Clark uses his super speed to save her and they hide in the storm cellar until the swarm passes.
Sasha goes back to her hive and finds Clark waiting there. He vows to stop her from hurting anyone else. The bees arrive, but Sasha claims that she didn't tell them to come back. She pleads with Clark to save her as they attack.
The bees turned on her and put her in a coma. Clark throws a screwdriver at a propane tank and then throws himself over Sasha. The shed explodes and burns up all the bees. Paul Chan ended up winning the election as Felice and Sasha dropped out and Clark didn't win.
Six years later, Sasha reappeared in Smallville at the Talon. Chloe Sullivan recognized her and talked to her in the alley, where Sasha revealed that she had not escaped from Belle Reve like Chloe thought, but had been "cured" by Dr. Curtis Knox.
Sasha then said that she no longer had her abilities and that she had also forgotten the past six years. After Chloe went back to the Talon, Knox came up to Sasha's vehicle and knocked her out. He later operated on her again, removing some organs and murdered her. He took her body to a fertilizer plant in Smallville where he encountered Lex and had a confrontation.
In the Comics
In the comics, several recurring enemies of the Justice League have gone by the name "Queen Bee." While Sasha is never directly referred to by this name, the term is used in both "Drone" and "Cure" to describe her powers.
