Snake was the criminal leader of Metropolis' 13th Street Gang in the WB Television series Smallville. He appeared as the main antagonist in the Fifth Season episode "Vengeance".
He was portrayed by Douglas Arthurs.
He was referred to as "Snake" due to the serpent tattoo on the left side of his head. Snake was hired by Lionel Luthor to rob Andrea Rojas and her mother. During the botched mugging, Andrea was stabbed and her mother was killed. Andrea survived the encounter and underwent a heart transplant that was rich with meteor rocks that gave her metahuman abilities.
Snake and one of his fellow thugs mugged Martha Kent outside of a Metropolis homeless shelter in Suicide Slums. They managed to steal a watch that her late husband Jonathan had worn. However, Martha was saved by a masked female fighter who swooped out of the sky and beat them up. Though the Angel saved Martha's life, Snake still got away with the watch.
Clark Kent worked with Chloe Sullivan to find the stolen watch and discover the identity of the Angel. They staged a mugging and when the Angel showed up, Clark unmasked her and discovered she was actually Andrea Rojas, an employee at the Daily Planet. Andrea tells Clark her origins and reveals that she always carries a locket with a meteor rock in it to remind her of her mother.
Clark persuades Andrea and asked for her help in finding his father's watch. She agrees to help him get the watch back, but acknowledges that what Clark really wants is justice. Clark and Andrea find the gang, but they refused to reveal their leader, Snake. As they leave, the gang member called Snake and Clark super speeds to steal the phone from him and took it to Chloe. After they get the address, Clark goes to confront Snake and Andrea follows to keep an eye on him.
Clark found Snake and the two fight. Snake said he sold the watch and Clark chokes him until he was near death. Andrea arrived and encouraged Clark to kill him, but he stops himself. Andrea wasn't done yet with Snake, holding a vendetta against him for killing her mother years ago. Clark tried get Andrea to calm down, but she incapacitated him with a piece of Kryptonite she kept in her locket. Andrea demanded to now why Snake had her mother and Snake admitted that he had been hired by Lionel Luthor.
Against Clark's protest and pleas, Andrea took Snake's knife and stabbed him with it. Andrea left Clark incapacitated with her locket when the other gang member arrives seeing that Snake was dead. He prepares to kill him, unknowingly pulling him away from the kryptonite and Clark dispatches him. Clark, later, got the watch back after it was found in a pawn shop by Lana Lang.
