Allison Mack, as Chloe Sullivan on Smallville, had certain powers.

Chloe Sullivan Had Certain Powers That Mimicked and Foreshadowed Allison Mack’s Life in Nxivm

By Janet Russo

Philip Levens, who has appeared on the pages of Frank Report in an expose on how he destroyed the life of his wife and mother of his children, is the Hollywood writer and show-runner who wrote the first seasons for the hit TV show, Smallville.

As such, he had a large hand in the creation of its characters.

Stories on Philip Levens on Frank Report have suggested a dark side to this noted screenwriter. See links to stories about him at the end of this post.

On the surface, Smallville was about a young Clark Kent, trying to understand himself beyond being Superman. Yet actually the show is also  about various characters that all use MIND CONTROL in various ways, to different degrees, to manipulate one another.

Levens helped create characters such as Chloe Sullivan played by Allison Mack.

Chole, one of Clark Kent’s closest friends, had good traits and ‘healing’ powers. But she also was known to exhibit narcissistic tendencies.

Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan. In Smallville, Chloe had healing powers due to exposure to green meteor rock. The specific term for this power is “empathetic healing,” because she connects in an empathetic way to heal. This power is powerful enough to resurrect someone, but she literally gives them her own life-force, thereby causing her own death.

Before Chloe claimed her super-powers, her character had been committed to a mental institution by her mother.

Chloe’s character guarded her own life privately, but she disclosed the secrets of others. She was also known to sacrifice herself for her conceived “greater good” to “change the world”.

At times, her character seemed malicious and arrogant. Chloe even killed a man to protect Clark Kent’s secret. Her super-power was to take control over people by using mind control to get people to tell her what she wanted. This ability lowered her morality, as she made people tell her their thoughts without any remorse for how this affected their lives.

She was placed inside “Mind Dive” procedure.

As many know, Allison Mack’s more notorious role in real life led her to being convicted for racketeering as one of the leaders of the Nxivm sub-group called DOS.

Ironically, the sex cult used MIND-CONTROL to manipulate women into being branded and blackmailed in exchange for having mind-controlled sex slaves for her and cult leader Keith Raniere.

Allison Mack was accused [and admitted to] manipulating women into believing they were joining an all-female sorority – and that with its healing powers and badass teachings, they could heal themselves and change the world.  (Sound familiar?).

Like Chloe’s power of “empathetic healing” – which made her weaker and suffer for others – Allison was ready and to a large degree did take the fall for Raniere.

She lied to other women that he was not a part of DOS – and that it was, in fact, run at his command. When everything fell apart, she was willing to take the fall for it.

She went to Nxivm meetings and took the blame for DOS – even though Raniere created it. She went so far as to tell the New York Times that she came up with the idea of branding women. At the trial of Raniere, the jury heard tapes of Raniere and Mack where it was clear that Raniere came up with the idea of branding as a tribute to himself.

Just as Chloe was willing to risk her own life to heal someone and take a life to protect someone, Allison Mack was willing to ruin her life to try to save Raniere and destroy other lives [Think of her collateral where she falsely claimed members of her family were molesters].

Art creates life, or life creates art? We can really only ask the artists or writers and actors themselves.

But Mack isn’t speaking of course. Not until after sentencing – at a minimum.   [One day of course she may write a book.]

But Mack’s role with Raniere is eerily similar to her role on Smallville, and her relationship with Clark Kent.

Young Superman played by Tom Welling and Chloe Sullivan played by Allison Mack. She was in love with Superman but it was largely unrequited.

 

Superhero Keith Alan Raniere and his slave Allison Mack. She adored Raniere and was willing to take the fall for him. She tried but it was no-go with the prosecution – who wanted Raniere above all.

I wonder then if Philip Levens helped create the character that Mack later became in real life – with Raniere?

Mack will be sentenced one day soon, sometime this year most likely. It is my hope that she gets a lenient sentence. I am sorry that she did not flip sooner on Raniere.

It is known that Frank Parlato and Catherine Oxenberg together tried to reach her [and spoke to her longtime manager] well before the New York Times story came out. Catherine and Frank had hoped to persuade Allison to leave the cult and, if possible, turn evidence against Raniere. Frank, who knew Allison from the days he was a consultant for Nxivm, left his phone number.

He also tried to call her on her cell phone

Allison chose not to return his calls.

If she had left then and worked with the prosecution, it could have been arranged that she could have gotten immunity, much as several others did.

It was her loyalty to Keith that destroyed her – even when everything fell apart, she stayed with him.

This attempt at sort of an “empathetic healing” backfired horrendously.  Her life was destroyed. It was all for naught too. She did not save Raniere. He was arrested first and has been in custody for more than two years. Based on his conviction, he will be in prison for many years to come.

Mack was arrested about 30 days after Raniere.

One year after she was arrested, in April 2019, she pled guilty to felony crimes of racketeering and racketeering conspiracy – which could land her in prison for several years.  During her plea hearing, she denounced and repudiated Raniere.

She said he had been deceived by him.  Her ultimate role in Nxivm, perhaps because it was not scripted, did not have a happy ending.  But perhaps someday it will turn out alright. The best thing that happened to her was being arrested. For had the cult not been destroyed, she would be in it today, still slaving for Raniere and trying to recruit others into sex slavery.

  • Regarding mind control, my experience has led me to believe mind control techniques are a reality. As a kid, there was a neighbor who hypnotized someone at every neighborhood party to show how effective suggestion was in controlling someone’s mind and body. It is what it is. Also, I recently read a book called CHAOS by Tom O’Neill that reveals how much money the government invested in the research and testing of different mind control techniques. It talked about the success and failures. It revealed how Charles Manson, his clan and Jack Ruby were pawns in the testing of different mind control techniques. There is definitely there there.

    • Yes, the talk around town is that the story is out but is anyone going to rescue the kids? Is anyone gonna bring the bad guys – liars, co-conspirators , perjurers to justice or do we have to wait till they are frying in hell?

  • What a bunch of garbage. Mind control from a TV script written almost 20 years ago? Really? Click bait and stupid.

  • Off-Topic:

    Re Mitch Garrity’s Health:

    Does anyone know if Mitch Garrity is okay? I am hoping he did not succumb to Ablutophobia involving a bath; die of cirrhosis of the liver; catch the Coronavirus without having a lime; or died trapped “in the closet” suffering from Micropsia.

    I am deeply concerned for Mitch Garrity’s safety and well-being. He has had many issues over the last year and we should all be concerned!

    • Seriously what causes you to mention Cirrhosis of the liver? Does Mitch Garrity have a drinking problem? He has seemed incoherent in the past; I simply wrote it off as early dementia.

  • “Levens helped create characters such as Chloe Sullivan played by Allison Mack.”
    Here we go again…another conspiracy about how levens was linked somehow to the cult?

    “Chole, one of Clark Kent’s closest friends, had good traits and ‘healing’ powers. But she also was known to exhibit narcissistic tendencies.”
    Like pointed here, Chloe had the healing power because of the fact she was caring…

    “As many know, Allison Mack’s more notorious role in real life led her to being convicted for racketeering as one of the leaders of the Nxivm sub-group called DOS.”
    And another inaccuracy…she was forced to take a plea deal by the da (through pressure of more false accusation) and her lawyers who didn’t care about helping her.
    She was never a leader of DOS, NEVER.
    Trial is clearly showing it and even the da stopped saying it because the fact is that Allison was a victim at the same level as other who was FORCED to do things under coercion…

    One week without trying to lie, it’s a record on FR…but giving the key to people who lies is as bad as lying yourself franky.

    “Ironically, the sex cult used MIND-CONTROL to manipulate women into being branded and blackmailed in exchange for having mind-controlled sex slaves for her and cult leader Keith Raniere.”
    Janet, get back to your real world instead of making fantasy story…whatever this world is.

    She didn’t had any power in the cult but worst yet, she was mind controlled no the other way around.

    This is what happens when you give the possibility to people who know nothing about the case to talk publicly frank…idiots who ignore the facts and don’t know 1 thing.

    This ,whatever she is, is actually talking like we are back at the beginning of the case , when we knew not much about the reality.

    In her world, It’s Allison who manipulated mind and is a leader, this is the position from 2018 (april 2018…as a few months later, the DA himself stopped talking about leader.

    Also , during the trial (for those who actually followed the story), it’s shown that Allison was abused mentally but never that she abused (in any way).

    “Allison Mack was accused [and admitted to] manipulating women into believing they were joining an all-female sorority”
    Correction, was accused by people who didn’t knew the details and admitted forcingly to have committed this while the trial showed otherwise…
    Janet, get help , you couldn’t get further back in time…
    The trial showed that it wasn’t her work.

    “Allison was ready and to a large degree did take the fall for Raniere.”
    BS…once again, back in 2018…your sure it’s a recent message frank?
    She accused him…

    “She lied to other women that he was not a part of DOS – and that it was, in fact, run at his command. When everything fell apart, she was willing to take the fall for it.”
    Whatever you say, nutjob…
    once again, she did what she was told under coercion, starvation, sleep deprivation and drug…
    For many “victims”,these excuse weren’t there and they did the same so i advise Janet to really consider serious help as she is taking the place of other nutjobs who try to frame Allison even after the facts were revealed…

    “She went to Nxivm meetings and took the blame for DOS – even though Raniere created it. She went so far as to tell the New York Times that she came up with the idea of branding women. At the trial of Raniere, the jury heard tapes of Raniere and Mack where it was clear that Raniere came up with the idea of branding as a tribute to himself.”
    COERCION…you have selected only a couple of facts from the trial ?

    Also, who is lacking empathy…It happened long ago and Allison is healing from the damage done to her life (which were way worst then what the other victim had and believe me, you know nothing about her sufference)
    And you come with an outdated version where you accuse Allison of many things that nobody said she was linked to…

    Reminder, mental manipulation is lauren’s domain. Allison was abused by those EM and other “therapy”…she never gave them.

    “But Mack isn’t speaking of course. Not until after sentencing – at a minimum. ”
    Idiot…She wasn’t asked to witness in court (due to a certain incompetent person who could have costed a lot if it wasn’t for the jury being willing to get raniere off the grid) and she can’t speak because she is still under home arrest…
    And when i see people like you twisting facts, i’ll advice her not to speak.

    ” wonder then if Philip Levens helped create the character that Mack later became in real life – with Raniere?”
    Suuuuure….now, please go seek professionnal help, ok?

    “Mack will be sentenced one day soon, sometime this year most likely. It is my hope that she gets a lenient sentence. I am sorry that she did not flip sooner on Raniere.”
    I doubt you do hope this as first, she deserve complete leniency based on the real fact and you decided to charge her with many ridiculous accusations.
    Second, she flipped on raniere as soon as she could…as soon as she was arrested (and her collateral locked by authorities).
    It’s the DA that refused her plea deal as she was only willing to plea for what she really committed (despites the fact that her collateral prove that she was coerced and should be removed from the defendant stand…from the first day till the last, she claimed her innocence as she was allowed…
    She could only do it through her lawyers and they ,sometime (because obviously, as long as they were paid, they didn’t care much) asked the judge to cancel the charges.
    The judge till the day of her “plea deal” (and what a deal…recognize that she did things she didn’t or else be dragged into stories older than her) never said no to her lawyers…

    “It is known that Frank Parlato and Catherine Oxenberg together tried to reach her [and spoke to her longtime manager] well before the New York Times story came out. Catherine and Frank had hoped to persuade Allison to leave the cult and, if possible, turn evidence against Raniere. Frank, who knew Allison from the days he was a consultant for Nxivm, left his phone number.”
    And it’s absolutely fake…no one corroborate this…worst, for cat, India stated that her mother didn’t tried to contact her either…

    If frank believe he talked to her parents, it’s not them and i advice him not to persist on this fake story as it’s affecting people unrelated to this case…

    “He also tried to call her on her cell phone”
    correction…AFTER HE ACCUSED HER VIOLENTLY AND DESTROYED ANY CHANCES FOR HER TO LEAVE AS SHE WAS STUCK IN THE CULT BY THOSE ACCUSATIONS, He tried to call her to ger her side of the story…
    A sane person and a real journalist do this BEFORE ACCUSING…you double check the info.
    Especially since the trial showed how her implication was never close to the accusation made here.

    “If she had left then and worked with the prosecution, it could have been arranged that she could have gotten immunity, much as several others did.”
    BS, the prosecution was leaded by a greedy person who cared about her career (but ended up failing)…
    Plus all the accusation were based on accusation made by people who didn’t knew the structure of the cult and finally, her collaterals were still in raniere’s hand.

    And several is only one…for a immunity , those people should have been worried by the instruction but in reality, prosecution don’t care about the real culprit (but raniere) as the best deal was given to the number 2 of the cult…nancy.
    India is the only who got immunity and in a way, it’s inacceptable as the trial showed she did the same and more than Allison but was exonerate under the excuse of mental manipulation and physical abuses.

    While it is a fact, Allison suffered the same and more while committing less but was never given a chance to be saved.

    “It was her loyalty to Keith that destroyed her – even when everything fell apart, she stayed with him.”
    Reinvent the story , yeah…she left immediatly when her COLLATERAL were seized…SHE WAS STUCK.

    “This attempt at sort of an “empathetic healing” backfired horrendously. Her life was destroyed. It was all for naught too. She did not save Raniere. He was arrested first and has been in custody for more than two years. Based on his conviction, he will be in prison for many years to come”
    Yeap, you need professionnal help and stop living in a fantasy…when you’ll get back to reality, you’ll understand why i’m so aggressive toward you.
    Not that you will care as you live in your own fantasy.

    “But perhaps someday it will turn out alright. The best thing that happened to her was being arrested.”
    What kind of loser try to add false accusation but then pretend to be caring and nice all this while saying “being arrested is the best thing that happened to her”…
    She is a victim of a cult, she tried to get out before it exploded , she was coerced (and even publicly as the interviewer from NY times saw that raniere and lauren pressured an ‘unwilling to take the blame’ Allison…
    She was abused physically, mentally, starved, drugged and then ignore by the justice as a victim.

    All this while other people with the same crime pedigree but with less excuses were given a free pass…

    As a victim, in a modern country with a proper justice system, She would have been excused and helped…
    But she should be thankfull to go from victim of the cult to victim of the state?
    Idiot!
    Worst, after the state is done, nutjobs like you still try to add stuff on her shoulder and ignore the FACTS and one particularly…she was a victim.

    • It didn’t work for Patty Hearst and it didn’t work for Mack/Chloe. And unless Superman is real, I don’t Mack will have her sentence commuted by Trump or any future President. LOL

    • Anonymous,

      —Also, during the trial (for those who actually followed the story), it’s shown that Allison was abused mentally but never that she abused (in any way).

      Anonymous your statement is patently false. Allison Mack sent a young woman to Keith Raniere for sexual relations. Allison knew that the women had been sexually abused and victimized. Allison told the woman to go have sex with Raniere and “It’s okay to enjoy it”. When the woman left NXIVM, Allison refused to hand over the collateral or help the woman to obtain her collateral. Allison ran a DOS pod all by herself.

      Did you follow the trial?

      If you did follow the trial then you are the one who is delusional.
      ,
      I am sorry for you if Allison is your daughter.

      Allison is a victim and she is also a criminal. She deserves a year in prison. She helped to blackmail and coerce a woman into having sex with Raniere.

      Last time I checked, blackmail is a crime on the state and federal level in the United States. The crime is a felony.

      If that young woman was my sister, I’d make I would do everything in my power to put Allison away for 5 years.

      You are blinded.

  • There is not a shadow of doubt in my mind that Raniere and Salzman ET AL studied “Smallville” for clues on how to manipulate the actors they recruited from the series and make Mack and Kreuk their iconic poster girls to draw in younger girls who already idolized them.

    After reading the GBD posts, there is also no doubt that Kristin Keeffe had a strong hand in the deception. In the early GBD posts, “Gina” is my sister, “Denise” is one of her best friends, “Ashley” is a young man we knew and I suspect I am “Daisy” (Daisy was the romantic interest in The Great Gatsby and, as I told several reporters including Sarah Berman BEFORE reading those particular GBD posts extensively, Keith tried to pull off a “Gatsby” thing with me — impress me with his fame & wealth and lure me from my marriage — starting in about 1999 – 2001. [Keith always used fantasy — movies, shows, books — to mind condition his acolytes and pattern his own image on.]

    The effort to recruit me included using Gina, through Kristin Keeffe, and God knows who else (had an encounter with Steve Ose a time or two In Albany, one on the same night Kristin Keeffe was bar tending and I got severe food or drink poisoning) to cyberspy on me and my ex at home in Malibu, CA and when I visited Albany — the dialogue that appeared on the GBD site between these real life characters is eerily familiar. I know for a fact there was a key logger on our home computer I shared with my ex — right Bangkok?

    Point is: Keith and Co. select, study, TARGET their victims and use whatever means at their disposal (and thanks to the Bronfman’s they have a lot of means) to control and manipulate them for their purposes.

    Someday I do hope Kristin Keeffe will honestly elucidate on all this but I’m not holding my breath. In fact, I feel lucky to still be breathing!

    As for Phillipe Levens — “You’ll never work in this town again!” AND God will see you in hell for what you’ve done to your kids and their mother. You may have had some help from NXIANS on your Smallville actors internalizing your repulsive misogyny but it’s that much more on display in reality and it is the epitome of ugly. Not a good look.

  • How not surprising to see on this site yet another silly post based on someone’s uninformed, incorrect notion, this time trying to elevate Levens’ role during his stint on Smallville.

    Was this drivel written by the same idiot who wrote this stupid shit

    https://frankreport.com/2019/09/22/having-been-on-smallville-allison-mack-was-naturally-drawn-to-alpha-super-male-keith-raniere/

    which hilariously claimed the only actresses in NXIVM came from Smallville, ignoring the likes of Edmondson, Clyne, Park, Cheng, Loken, O’Brien, Oxenberg, Davis, Piesse, etc.

    • Here’s the quote: “Allison was apparently targeted because of her role on Smallville. I mean, seriously, with the dozens of “teen steam” shows why was Smallville, the story about the “secret alpha” Clark Kent, the only one that actresses were drawn from?” Which “teen steam” shows were the other actresses on? LOL

      • More ignorance. Edgemont was also a teen show. Look it up if you don’t know who was in it. LOL

        But It has nothing to do with Smallville being a teen show or comic book show or family/teen/sci-fi/superhero mashup and everything to do with the show being filmed in Vancouver when Edmondson was on her mad recruiting spree of all her actor friends and acquaintances in that area.

  • So Allison Mack is so WEAK MINDED that she becomes the character she plays?
    Did Basil Rathbone become a detective like Sherlock Holmes?
    Was Humphrey Bogart Private Detective Phillip Marlowe in real life?
    Is Sean Connery Secret Agent James Bond 007 in real life?

    The whole point of acting is that it is MAKE BELIEVE!
    Even children understand MAKE BELIEVE!

    Allison Mack claims to be a fan or “studier” of Shakespeare.
    If she were cast as Lady MacBeth would she become a murderess?
    If she were cast as one of the Three Witches in MacBeth would she become a witch in real life?
    If she were cast in a project as Lucretia Borgia would she go out and start poisoning people in real life?
    If Allison Mack were cast as Lady Dracula would she then go out and start sucking people’s blood?
    If Allison Mack were cast as Lizzie Borden would she go out with an ax and start giving everyone “forty whacks”?

    “Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her mother forty whacks
    When she saw what she had done she gave her father forty-one.”

    There’s a good reason people call Allison Mack “Ally Wack.”

    You have just made an excellent case for locking Allison Mack in a padded cell in a mental hospital for the next forty years.
    Maybe there is a padded room next to John Hinckley’s.

    I have just submitted a story to the Frank Report titled “Meet Allison Mack, Humanitarian” based on a bio description which she wrote about herself which I recently found.
    I let her use her own words to describe herself before I comment on them.
    She actually describes herself as a “humanitarian.”
    Allison Mack has grandiose ideas of herself and is somewhat delusional.
    Allison Mack is the type of actress who at the Oscars would thank ALL of her fans ALL over the world.
    ALL eight billion of them!

    “Before Chloe claimed her super-powers, her character had been committed to a mental institution by her mother.” Janet Russo
    And that is the real solution for Allison Mack.
    Lock her in a mental hospital for the Criminally Insane.

  • Please don’t mislead the readers with the influence and status of Levens.

    ——-Philip Levens is the Hollywood writer and show-runner who wrote the first seasons for the hit TV show, Smallville. As such he had a large hand in the creation of its characters…such as Chloe Sullivan played by Allison Mack——–

    He wasn’t a “showrunner” when he worked on Smallville. He was an Exec Story Editor and later Co-Producer which are the lower rungs for a writer on staff, whose job is to follow the established lead of the actual showrunners who created the show and the characters like Chloe. Levens wrote or co-wrote several episodes, starting late in the first season then into the next, so he wrote ON the show and DID NOT WRITE the show–big diff. As a writer on an established show, he only helped “develop” Chole who already had been “created” almost a year earlier, and Levens wrote her the way the showrunners told him to.

    In a way, Kristin Kreuk may have been a bigger influence on Mack. On Smallville, KK’s Lana Lang was the prettier girl that Superboy desired and simple Chloe always was in her shadow.. Then at Nx, maybe Mack felt in Kristin’s shadow again as Vanguard probably preferred the prettier Kreuk. Until Kreuk left…then with DOS Mack finally could be the female star in her own movie.

    • “Until Kreuk left“.

      She didn’t leave. She was still with NXIVM at least as recently as 2016 with the branding exposed in May 2017. Kreuk moved to Toronto for filming around 2013, she did not leave the cult. Allison Mack lived in Albany so was always around Raniere.

    • Mack grew up as a child actress. Due to this fact, I’m not unsurprised that she fell for the machinations of NXIVM. Imagine growing up playing a multitude of characters and having no real sense of identity or self because you’re constantly playing someone else? Her history could have made her more easily manipulated to please others and to seek validation within the group, especially when it came to an over-emphasized sense of faults that NXIVM inculcated in its female members (many who were already suffering from some self-esteem issues) as it was related in a concurrent article to this one by Sylvie when she was on the witness stand. After all, the more faults you have, the more you have to overcome—with NXIVM’s “help” of course. I have witnessed this in the statements other female NXIVM members, particularly those in Jness.

      • that was a juicy rumor a few years ago here and on CDAN…it now seems neither KK or AM were servicing KAR at the time—though Mack did so after Kreuk left.

  • Re:
    “Art creates life, or life creates art? We can really only ask the artists or writers and actors themselves”.

    You can’t ask Kristin Kreuk. Kristin Kreuk is neither an actress nor an artist and has no artistic streak. Therefore, it is impossible for her to answer this question.

    But why not examine the untalented actress Kristin Kreuk in relation to her role in Smallville? I can’t do that. I didn’t acquiesce to this crap and I didn’t follow the show.
