Young Justice, a fan favorite show, was cancelled by Cartoon Network. One of the great things about modern times is that fans get more of a say in what’s happening, and, after several years, the DC Universe platform brought the team back
I’m not sure this has happened to me before, but while I was watching “The Alpha and the Omega,” which was the season two finale for Krypton, I got word the series had been cancelled.
They have managed a few good surprises in the second season of Krypton, and a lot of the writing has gotten better. The twists have made sense and haven’t been, “Oh, let’s throw this in to shake things up.”
The puns on Zod’s name continue with, “Zods and Monsters.” Personally, I think that’s a bit redundant, since Zod is a monster in my book, but there are a few others in this episode.
Krypton didn’t have a mid-season finale, but the halfway point came with a major shock.
Krypton hits the halfway point for its second season with “A Better Yesterday.” The rebellion against Zod continues with twists and turns on both sides. There’s a lot of ruthlessness on this planet.
Three episodes in, you could make the argument that not a lot has happened so far this season. Zod still rules Krypton, the resistance is, well, resisting, and Seg and Adam are still stuck on Colu dealing with the sorta-ghost of Brainiac and the very real Lobo.
We got the new state of affairs on Krypton (and Colu) last episode to kick off the season. Now, things are getting uglier in both places.
In the opening, Zod has a ranting voiceover about his accomplishments since gaining power at the end of last season. One of the things we learn is that it’s been six months between seasons, and it feels like it’s been at least that long for us as well as them.
As usual with season finales, there are likely going to be spoilers in this one. Be warned.
Krypton ends its first season with a title that is chilling for anyone who knows more than just the basics of the Superman mythos: “The Phantom Zone.”
