Wade Mahaney is the leader of The 3 Intangible Jocks and the main antagonist in the Season One episode "Kinetic" of Smallville.
He was portrayed by Kavan Smith.
Wade was a former football player for the Smallville Crows and had a dozen scholarships lined up until he blew out his knee. With his future dreams crushed, it seemed that Wade was unlikely to ever leave Smallville but later made a discovery that meteor rocks mixed in tattoo ink gave him and his friends the ability to phase through solid objects. Wade and his gang, The 3 Intangible Jocks, committed robberies with their power of intangibility allowing them to walk through walls, bypass security systems and take whatever they wanted without anyone noticing. However during a heist at the Smallville Savings and Loan, a member of the team lost his arm when he phased through the vault.
Wade Mahaney, Derek Fox and Scott Bowman managed to break into the Luthor Mansion walking right through the walls wearing ski masks while Clark Kent and Chloe Sullivan visiting. They enter the vault and fill their bags with cash, coins, precious artifacts and a computer disc containing some sensitive files. On their way out, they encountered Clark and put in a headlock before hitting him in the gut and slamming him on the floor as the meteor rock from the tattoos rendered Clark powerless. Chloe tried to escape but got in the way and was pushed out of a fourth story window.
Fortunately, she lands in soft grass but spent several days recovering in the hospital. At the gang's loft, Wade is disappointed that his heist wasn't even on the news. Scott guessed that Lex Luthor has enough money that it's not worth mentioning but Derek figured that they must have stolen something valuable that Luthor didn't want to mention it on the news. They check out the disc, and discover Lex is stealing money from his father to fund a personal project involving a particle accelerator. They decide to blackmail Lex with the disc but Derek warned that the tattoo ink from the meteor rocks is starting to fade faster then usual and must find a new member for their team.
At the mansion, Lex was on the phone giving his security firm a hard time when the burglars show up again demanding a million dollars or they will upload the disc to the Internet. While leaving the store Clark noticed Wade and saw his bright green tattoo. Wade approached Whitney Fordman at his family's department store who recognizes Whitney from the football games, and asks about his future. Whitney tells him the truth, and Wade commiserates, saying he lost a scholarship due to an injury. Wade invites him to a party at their place that night. At the party, Wade shows Whitney their tattoo machine, and talks him into getting one. The tattoo ink is a bright, meteor rock green. Later, while walking through a traffic tunnel, Wade and the gang threw Whitney in front of a truck and it passes right through him.
