    The character Pete left the show because of the stress and danger of keeping Clark's secret. It was too much for him, which isn't speaking ill of him since he'd been beaten and tortured at least twice by someone trying to learn the secret.

    I believe he moved to Witchita with his mother.

    As for why the actor left? I don't recall.

    Clark told Pete his secret. That episode and almost every episode after that had Pete getting his butt kicked non-stop. Finally, he realized that was not a good thing so he left with his mom when his parents got divorced.

    yeah, on tv he left to go with his mom because it was too stressful hiding Clark's secret. In real life he left to further his acting career (doing a couple of movies and stuff like that).

    I just hope he doesnt end up dying on his return episode. That would suck.

    When was this? The only time he was ever close to a superhero was in the Pre-Crisis continuity when the Legion made him an honorary member, and later in the Post-Crisis continuity where he was framed as a villain called Ruin.

    Why? That would be a horrible change to the DC mythos. You need the ability to overcome great fear. Pete didn't have that.

    And unless they're willing to give a proper explanation with a proper arc, it would be a huge risk and an outrage to GL and DCU fans.
