Supergirl: Blind Spots

You’d have thought that returning from the Phantom Zone would have been a high point for Supergirl and her team. Even though her PTSD was remarkably short-lived (just an episode, conveniently), there have been other problems, many of them from Dreamer’s horrendously selfish decision to help the 5th Dimensional Imp Nxylgsptinz get to Earth.

Stargirl: Summer School, Chapter Seven

Stargirl and her new JSA are having a rough summer. Not only do two of them have to go to summer school, which no teen wants, but they’ve dealt with malicious teachers, a powerful demon on the loose, a rival team being put together, and an enigmatic 19th century visitor. In addition to this they have mysteries involving their predecessors, complicated love lives, crushing guilt, and a lot of pressure as the stakes are constantly being raised.

Titans: 51%

By this point, the Titans might well be wishing they’d stayed in San Francisco. Jason died and came back as the villainous Red Hood, Hawk died, Dove left, and Rachel and Donna still haven’t shown up this season. Gotham is not a good place for anyone, really.

What If… Kilmonger Saved Tony Stark?

I’ve commented a few times that the Marvel What If…? series seems to be competing with itself to see how dark it can get. While the world without an Iron Man wasn’t as “good” as the main MCU, it wasn’t as tragic as some of the other episodes have been. Things change drastically for a good many characters in “What if Kilmonger Rescued Tony Stark?” This review is shorter than many, because there are so many twists and turns in this story and I don’t want to spoil them.

What If… Zombies?

After one bright initial episode, and a second one that was a lot of fun, Marvel’s What If…? has gotten steadily darker. I’ve commented before that I wonder if the writers are in a contest to see who can come up with the most depressing storyline.

Supergirl: Still I Rise

Supergirl’s final season has been remarkably uneven on many fronts. This particular episode has many of these problems all at once. There are a few good scenes, a few really bad ones, inconsistent internal logic, and characters using powers that don’t make sense, as well as forgetting powers and helpful coincidence.
