The show is definitely off in its own world, not connected to any other version of the DC Universe. This gives them some freedom to explore various ideas and be utterly untethered by the continuity or characterizations that have existed previously. It’s safe to say you never quite know what’s going to happen on this show, and that’s certainly the case with “Joker: The Killing Vote.”
The Sandman has a very complicated history. While the title was part of the Vertigo line, it was still part of the wider DC Universe, and some heroes and villains came in and out of the book. They’ve made the decision to not bring in any superhero characters, so some slightly different versions of some of these characters appear in the series.
Now, the new JSA has different challenges to face, dissension in the ranks, and a new theme for the season. The new season kicks off with “Frenemies: Chapter One: The Murder.”
Now we get a few surprising guests, a bit more time for a secondary character, and Jen and She-Hulk both in action in “The People Vs. Emil Blonsky.”
“The Sound of Her Wings” takes two stand-alone issues from the series and weaves them into a fantastic episode.
This year’s Flash Annual focuses on Linda Park-West’s novel, which we’ve been hearing about, and Wally finally making time to read it.
The Wild Cards series is one of my favorites. It’s an interesting take on superhumans, and, as long as it’s been running now, there’s been a lot of world building.
Otherwise known as “The Diner story” when it’s talked about, the episode is titled “24/7.” This is the most disturbing episode so far, and if memory serves, the worst we’re likely to see this season. This is going to be a very short review, because this is mostly high drama and I try to avoid spoilers.
Things get messy and yet another dangerous Bat-foe becomes a joke in “A Thief, A Mole, An Orgy.”
Jennifer Walters now enters the exciting world of “Superhuman Law.”
One of my favorite issues throughout the several years long run was early on, when Morpheus went to hell to reclaim what was his. That, somewhat adapted, is what we see in “A Hope in Hell.”
