Now, after a call from her grandmother, Kamala is in for a major change of scenery. It’s a bold move, leaving most of your established cast behind midway through a limited series.
The episode starts precisely where we left off, with Clark hovering and demonstrating a few of his powers for Lana, who is understandably stunned. Lana has a lot of questions, and we see a few flashbacks to various early portions of their lives.
After the events at AvengersCon, Kamala’s life is going to change, and they lead off with some obvious differences as “Crushed” begins.
After the chaos of the Deathstorm saga, and the emotionally charged funeral for Frost, you’d think Team Flash would be due for a break. Unfortunately, Central City is rarely a calm place. Rather than a big, overarching threat, the team spends most of the episode split up and dealing with different issues.
Stark made Iron Man initially to save his own life, and then became a crusading hero. Hardware was created to run a guerilla campaign against Edwin Alva, Curtis’ evil and untrustworthy boss. Eventually, he too became a hero, but it took some time, and their different experiences and lives gave the characters very different outlooks.
DC Comics is releasing comics based on the various shows in a miniseries called Earth Prime. We’ve seen Superman and Lois, Stargirl, Batwoman, and the Legends of Tomorrow. Now, it’s time to visit Central City and see some of Team Flash.
Now it’s finally here, and I have to say I really enjoyed pretty much everything about the first episode.
As he learned more about Earth culture, he took the name Augustus Freeman, and, due to his extended lifespan, is now known as August Freeman IV. Marooned on Earth, he became a lawyer (closest to his profession before landing here) and waited for rescue.
Sadly, some of the questions I’ve been having along the way aren’t even remotely acknowledged, let alone answered. As a both series and season finale, there will be spoilers.
The Deathstorm saga ended with a few surprises. The ridiculously powerful villain was defeated, which was good, but there was a high price. Frost, formerly Killer Frost, formerly just a voice in Caitlin’s head, faced the supervillain, but died defeating him (it?).
McDuffie and a few partners created Milestone Media, a company focusing on minority characters, the first four of which were Hardware, Icon, Blood Syndicate, and Static.
