They have an interesting mix of characters from the original Outsiders comics, the Judas Contract in New Teen Titans, and a few other places.
With the future of the Arrowverse in doubt, fans of the shows and shared universe need to potentially explore other ways to enjoy the characters. The Earth Prime series is a possible way to go, comic book adaptations of the shows that are, themselves, based on comic books.
The five part Armageddon event on Flash has been busy already, bringing in various guest stars to face the menace of Despero. This version of Despero is from the future and is determined to kill Barry because, in Despero’s time, Flash goes mad and destroys the world. Now, Team Flash needs to find out what’s going on with Barry, figure out a way to stop Despero, and keep things from going utterly bad for the Scarlet Speedster. Part 3 shows Barry looking for special help from a character we haven’t seen for a while.
he five part “Armageddon” event kicked off with Flash’s first episode of season eight. Billed as a special crossover to help make up for the lack of big events due to COVID, this is supposed to feature Barry Allen and company teaming up with various other Arrowverse characters to battle a great menace.
After four seasons, fifty-eight episodes, and far too much Tobias Whale, Black Lightning finally comes to an end. I’m going to miss this show, although not some of the recurring situations the characters kept trapping themselves in.
The end of the road is about here for Black Lightning. I’m still sorry the show is being cancelled, even with vague hints of Black Lightning himself at least possibly appearing again in the Arrowverse in the future.
The end is in sight as progress is being made on several different subplots on the final season of Black Lightning. Tobias Whale seems to hold all the cards, but there’s an impressive array of characters opposing him, and Whale just may have underestimated all of them.
I have to say, I’m going to miss the show. It’s been great seeing an important character from comic book history finally appearing in live action, and even getting his own show.
…every show has ups and downs, and “The Book of Ruin: Chapter Four: Lyding” was definitely on the down side. There were a lot of flaws in the episode, and I have to admit I was generally disappointed.
After a side trip for a backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off series, Black Lightning continues with what is unfortunately the final season. Tobias Whale is pulling out all the stops in his bid for power in Freeland and his war against Jefferson Pierce.
