"If you're here to arrest me, there's some people I'd like to roll on."
(Page Six) - It was a villainous scheme too twisted for any superhero show.
“Smallville” actress Allison Mack was arrested Friday for her role in sick upstate sex cult Nxivm, where prosecutors allege she recruited “slaves” to sleep with the group’s leader — and held them down as they were “branded” with his initials.
A gaunt, disheveled Mack, 35, appeared in Brooklyn federal court Friday and pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking and forced labor — a month after leader Keith Raniere was collared on the same charges.
Mack was Raniere’s direct “slave” and previously had a sexual relationship with him — but also acted as a “master” to other slaves, who were starved and branded like cattle.

As Raniere’s initials were being burned into their pubic regions with a cauterizing pen, Mack allegedly put her hands on their chests and told them to “feel the pain” and to “think of [their] master.”
The actress — who played Clark Kent’s pal Chloe Sullivan in the “Smallville” TV series about Superman’s origins — first lured female Nxivm members into the secret society known as The Vow by describing it as a “women’s empowerment group” and cajoled them into handing over “collateral” like embarrassing photos and statements to gain entry, prosecutors allege.
She then groomed the women for sex with Raniere, ordering them to adhere to extremely restrictive diets, refrain from removing their pubic hair and stay celibate, according to court documents.
“Ms. Mack was one of the top members of a highly organized scheme which was designed to provide sex to [Raniere],” Assistant US Attorney Moira Penza said in court Friday.
“Under the guise of female empowerment, she starved women until they fit her co-defendant’s sexual feminine ideal.”
She also forced them to pose naked for photos — “including on one occasion close-up pictures of their vaginas” — that were given to Raniere and also used as collateral, the feds charge.
“All mine?” he texted in response to one naked photo of all the slaves sent by Mack, according to prosecutors.
Mack and other slave “masters” allegedly made their slaves participate in “readiness” drills, requiring them to respond to requests at any time of the day or night so they were “seriously sleep-deprived.”
One of her slaves became so thin and tired that she stopped getting periods.Read More . . . .
