The Legends of Tomorrow have been through a lot of changes since the team was first put together by Captain Rip Hunter (remember him?), and more are on the way.
I’ve been a fan of superheroes my entire life, although I’ve never had a big interest in Superman himself, which is a bit ironic considering he’s the character that started the entire industry. I did like the Christopher Reeve movies, and the DC Animated Universe cartoon was decent. The ever-expanding Arrowverse finally added a Superman to their roster, and it was the best version of the character I’d seen in many years, much better than the darker version that popped up in the recent movies and the “New 52” reboot. I was interested when they announced the new “Superman and Lois” show and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it through the first season. It’s too bad we’ve reached the end of a great season, but at least we know there will be a season two, and hopefully some appearances throughout the Arrowverse to look forward to. As this is a season finale, there may be some spoilers below.
What do you do after a major triumph? That’s something Courtney is struggling to answer as both her Stargirl and Courtney Whitmore lives are suffering after dealing with the ISA.
For this episode, they find assorted different problems stemming from them being “Bored On Board Onboard.” We don’t really see any major plot advancement here aside from a few small side scenes, but there’s some weird fun and some “This could only happen to you guys” moments.
The first season of Superman and Lois has been an unqualified success. The show was renewed very early, and has gotten rave reviews from fans and critics (me among them). Even people who say they’ve never really liked Superman have been won over by the top-notch acting, writing, and characterizations.
Superheroes saving the world isn’t a new thing, but leave it to the Legends to do it in a uniquely odd way. There’s a lot at stake when they get to “The Final Frame.”
I’ve been raving about Superman and Lois since it debuted, and I’m likely going to continue doing so. The show consistently amazes me, doing some very different things in the superhero genre, but still staying true to who both the main characters are.
Season seven of The Flash reaches its end amid the chaos of the Godspeed war. We get a resolution to that, several allies working together, an old enemy coming back, and a nice little family scene at the end. To my surprise, there was no big cliffhanger, which the CW usually does on their season finales.
One of the problems with Legends of Tomorrow (aside from the title no longer making any sense at all) is the size of the cast. They have too many players, and even when they cut someone (I still miss Ray), they tend to fill their slot almost immediately.
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.”
