History

The Talon was a movie theater in Smallville, owned by Nell Potter. In early 2002, Nell was going to sell the theater, due to lackluster business. However, her niece Lana couldn't let go off the building, due to her late parents having met there. Lana managed to convince Lex Luthor to invest in the Talon and the place was converted into a coffee shop.[1]

Two years later, Lana had the upstairs apartment renovated and rented it out to Adam Knight, but he didn't stay for very long.[2][3] A few months later, Lana sold her share of the coffee shop, to finance her time at a Paris art school.[4] Afterwards, the coffee shop was closed until Martha Kent convinced Lex to let her manage it. When Lana returned to town, she moved into the upstairs apartment until she left to attend Metropolis University.[5][6][7][8]

When Lois Lane moved to Smallville, she got a job as a waitress at the Talon and took over the upstairs apartment.[9][10] However, she didn't have the apartment to herself for long, as Chloe Sullivan moved in with her shortly after the events of Dark Thursday.[11] Two years later, Henry James Olsen, who was engaged to Chloe, moved into the apartment. This prompted Lois to move out and get an apartment in Metropolis.[12]

However, Lois moved back to the apartment after losing her apartment in Metropolis and continued living there until the building was blown up by the Suicide Squad.[13][14]
