    Look, the only one who gets to decide where you are, mijita, is you. Truth be told... sometimes I still feel like I'm falling. But I look at the ground beneath my feet, and I know why I'm here on this Earth... you know, to help my town... to be your dad. And that gets me through... every single time.
    — Kyle Cushing to Sarah Cortez[src]

    Fire Chief Kyle Cushing is the fire chief of the Smallville Fire Department, the ex-husband of Lana Lang, and the father of Sarah Cortez and Sophie Cushing.

    When Morgan Edge planned to exploit Smallville, Cushing welcomed him with open arms, believing it could bring good to the town that suffered for decades. Unfortunately, Cushing's judgement was wrong and Edge used his trust to eradicate him, making him a host of a Kryptonian. He was eventually restored and reconciled with his family, becoming the person they once admired and loved.

    The peaceful life of the family did not last for a long period, however, as the residents of Smallville blamed them for Edge's actions. Despite them forgiving the Cushings after their efforts in the Battle of Smallville, Cushing secretly had a short affair with Tonya Martinez which once again broke the family.
