Stargirl’s Summer School is almost done. It’s been an impressive season, with the evil of Eclipso and the havoc he (it?) has wreaked throughout Blue Valley and on the JSA.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has done a lot of things that have never been done before, from the intricacy of the world-building to the range of characters and types of stories. It’s also in contention for the longest-running movie franchise and has been of overall amazing quality. Spider-Man: No Way Home, continues both those trends.
The theme of the third season of Batwoman seems to be the trophies from former Batman foes giving rise to new villains. They did Mad Hatter well, but I was puzzled by the title of “Loose Tooth.” The only Bat-foe I could think of that might work for was Killer Croc, and I couldn’t see how that would give rise to a new version. They actually handled it pretty well.
One of the things I have been enjoying about Hawkeye is that they have spent time developing characters besides the lead. Clint and Kate, of course, get a lot of screen time, but so has Maya/Echo and now, Yelena Belova, Natasha Romanov’s kid sister from the Black Widow movie.
“Souls” is a change from the entire rest of the season and series, and may be the best individual episode I’ve seen so far.
One thing you can say about the Legends of Tomorrow is that they aren’t afraid to shake things up. Almost the entire original cast is gone, and the focus of the series has shifted over and over again. Now the team is trapped in 1925 with no ship, and the Waverider did a lot for them in terms of day to day needs.
Supergirl is in the final season of the show, which made the choice to do a new intro for the last few episodes puzzling. Then again, a lot of the choices this season have been puzzling.
The great evil of Eclipso was released by Cindy Burman AKA Shiv, Stargirl’s nemesis, and the town has been paying for it, especially those nearest and dearest to Courtney. While the titular plotline has been pretty much dropped as part of the story, the evil of Eclipso continues in “Summer School, Chapter Eleven.”
Last season had a lot happen on Batwoman, but one of the things I was most glad to see was that she won’t be alone in the field anymore. Batwoman was the only Arrowverse hero without backup, and that’s finally changed as Luke Fox became more like his comic book self and donned the Batwing armor.
Now the heroes are dealing with Hawk’s loss, Crane’s plan, and the general ugliness of Gotham, not to mention Kory taking in her evil sister, Blackfire/Kormand’r,
