The third season of Titans wasted no time upping the stakes, leading off with the murder of Jason Todd, loosely adapted from the classic comic book collection “A Death in the Family,”…
The Legends of Tomorrow have been going through more changes than usual lately. Between people coming and going, characters going through assorted changes, and shifting goals for the season, the status quo has been bending a lot. They do more of that, but also go to great lengths to undo at least one change in “This is Gus.”
The end is near… of season seven, anyway. The beginning of the two-part season finale has speedsters at war, two old friends coming back, more nods to the comics, and another attempt at redeeming a supervillain.
The Titans, a live action series that started on the now-defunct DC Universe and migrated to HBO Max along with Doom Patrol, returns for their third season. Season two ended with the tragic (and poorly written) death of Donna Troy, AKA Wonder Girl.
Superman and Lois has consistently been a pleasant surprise. The show excels on every level, and continues to impress everyone I’ve talked about it with, including surprised people who tell me they’ve never been Superman fans.
There are multiple, apparently identical, speedsters running around, Team Flash is outnumbered and arguably out gunned, and one of their depleted number goes off on their own.
The Suicide Squad is back and some of them might even make it through the movie.
The second episode changes things on a more cosmic level, with a lot of fascinating repercussions. As with last week, the title gives you basic concept: “What If T’Challa Became A Star-Lord?” This is, it’s worth noting, the last performance of any kind from Chadwick Boseman.
Now, in season two, we see some of the aftermath of the heroes’ big win, as well as new characters and complications. There’s a lot to learn in “Summer School: Chapter One.”
What If?… explores alternate worlds, things that could have happened if something had been just a bit different. The first episode, “What If… Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?” has a fairly self-explanatory concept.
