After the arrest of Ethan Miller, Nancy Adams took over his position as sheriff of Smallville.

Taking over for a corrupt officer of the law, Adams tried to set up a hard line against crime in Smallville, which she felt Miller had often overlooked.[1]

She often clashed with Clark Kent, who'd often show up at crime scenes and whom she felt interfered with police work.[2] Through her work in Smallville, she'd often find herself in strange situations, involving metahuman criminals.[3] In 2006, Adams responded to an alarm from the Luthor Mansion. After she entered the mansion, Adams was shot in the back by one of her deputies, who was out for Lex Luthor, and died.[4]
