|~ Sean to Chloe Sullivan, Cool|
Sean Kelvin, aka The Heatsucking Horndog, was a psychotic metahuman with the ability to absorb heat from other bodies or objects to keep himself warm and projected ice energy from his body. He was the main antagonist of the First season of the WB series Smallville episode "Cool".
He was portrayed by Michael Coristine.
Sean was always known to play with the affections of teenage girls, as he made a move on Chloe Sullivan.
While playing football at a bonfire, he fell into an icy lake infested with Kryptonite and gets trapped within it. He manages to free himself, but his skin was cold and turned blue. Warming his hands at a small fire, he absorbs the heat out of the fire and warms himself.
Sean tried to warm himself with matches but his power always caused the flame to freeze and fade. At the school nurse's office, Sean realizes that by stealing the body heat of others, he stays warm for at least a day, trading the survival of others for his own. Sean pays a visit to his girlfriend, Jenna Barnum, and steals her body heat while she was taking a shower, turning her body to ice which shatters.
He then set his sights on Chloe. At the school, Sean apologizes again and explains that he can't get warm, sitting by the fire only gives him a quick fix, body heat lasts longer. As he approaches Chloe, she falls into the water. She swims away, but Sean sucks all the heat out of the pool and it freezes just as she's climbing out. Clark arrives to free Chloe and knocks Sean across the room. Clark sends Chloe away, and turns to face Sean, but he's gone.
Later, Sean tried to go after Lana, but was again stopped by Clark. By absorbing Clark's heat, he is strengthened, but Clark manages to survive it. As he tries to drain the heat from other people, Clark manages to hurl him into a nearby pond. Sean, unable to control his power, sucks the heat from the water around him, encasing himself in ice and freezing the lake.
Chloe and Pete Ross discovered a secret underground laboratory built by Dr. Donovan Jamison, Dr. Steven Hamilton, and Dr. Arthur Walsh. The doctors were mining and using Kryptonite to try and find a cure for meteor freaks. They had the bodies of several meteor freaks, including the frozen body of Sean Kelvin. Sean was barely alive, encased in a block of ice.
Chloe and Pete caused an explosion. As they left the lab, they saw Sean's block of ice melting as they climbed out to safety. His current whereabouts are unknown, but it is unknown if he is alive, however, due to the heat of the fire caused by the explosion, it can be assumed he survived. It is unknown whether the explosion killed him though.

- Degrees Kelvin is sometimes used to describe very cold temperatures. Sean's last name is a reference to the power he gained.
- Sean's power is somewhat involuntary, as he automatically absorbed all the heat as soon as Clark hurled him into the pond.
