The post-Crisis screwed-up treatment of many Smallville folks just grinds me in ways that make my head hurt:

- Conduit / Kenny Braverman -- why?
- The Manhunters -- everyone in Smallville chipped -- ugh
- Pete Ross: Ruin -- 'nuff said

I'm sure Pete has been framed.

Doesn't matter.  Pete Ross was screwed up from the moment that they didn't have him stumble onto Clark's secret.  It would've been interesting to have Lana know but not feel that she could tell Pete, and Pete know but not feel he could tell Lana.  They resolve this as part of some nice story about trusting each other enough to get married (perhaps as a prelude to the Supes-Lois proposal, assuming they were fleshed out enough to get hitched), then Lana and Pete keep it secret the fact that Pete knows.  Lana can still hold a torch for our hero, but Pete knows this and they both can laugh about it.  And I'd love to see a frame like:  "Guys named Pete _should_ end up with the red headed girl who knows the secret.", as shown through some window pane with a spider on it.

 I couldn't agree with you more but it's just typical of how Superman's history has been handled recently.

Post Crisis Pete Ross is a pointless character.  His original theme and purpose was the best friend who secretly knew Clark's secret ID and helped him without his knowledge.

Exactly what role does Pete serve now?  He's just a bitter, jealous man who's mad at Clark for being so goshdarned All-American wonderful that of course his wife Lana prefers Clark and Pete was a distant second-choice.

Even Smallville the TV show had a better take on Pete Ross than that.
