The CW has released 10 images from "Beast," the Thursday, April 30 episode of Smallville.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Davis asks Chloe to leave town with him -- Clark (Tom Welling) discovers that Davis (Sam Witwer) is still alive and confronts Chloe (Allison Mack) about protecting him. Oliver (Justin Hartley) discovers Jimmy (Aaron Ashmore) breaking into Chloe's apartment, but things get rapidly worse after Davis jumps from the shadows and attacks both of them."

"Beast" was written by Genevieve Sparling and was directed by Michael Rohl.

Danny Huston said he sees Stryker, his character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, as kind of a Doctor Frankenstein.

"In a way, he helped create Wolverine," Huston said. "Stryker both hates and loves Logan, and certainly wants to control him and other mutants. He sees the mutants as children or wild animals. In controlling them, he can use them as weapons for what he perceives to be the safety of mankind.

"He loves Wolverine like a son. But he has to manipulate him and possibly exterminate him for what Stryker sees as a personal crusade, which he believes is bigger than any one man - or any one mutant."

Huston, whose credits include 30 Days of Night, is playing a younger version of the character first played by Brian Cox in X2.

Image Comics has announced Invincible co-creator Cory Walker will return to illustrate a two-part story setting the stage for the upcoming Viltrumite War.

"While Cory has been working behind the scenes in the Invincible crew, it's great to have him back for these two very special issues," Invincible co-creator and writer Robert Kirkman said. "They're going to be pretty damn momentous in the grand scheme of Invincible as we place the spotlight on Invincible's dad, Nolan, and his new partner, Allen the Alien, while they seek the only weapons capable of taking down the Viltrumite empire."

Shown here in the cover to Invincible #66, due in stores in September. The Viltrumite War begins in Invincible #75.
