Now, in an interesting spin on things, the tv shows based on the comics return to their roots in a six issue comic book series. “Earth Prime” visits several different shows from the CW, filling in some things we didn’t see, due to a combination of budget and COVID.
Now, the team races to recover a lot of lost items (they really need to get better at holding on to their stuff) and a new character is introduced to the Bat-mythos that fills a role I don’t think they’ve ever touched on before. They really are having a lot of problems with “Broken Toys.” The episode also continues the Arrowverse tradition of letting the cast direct, as Camrus Johnson (Luke Fox) takes over for this episode.
there’s a meeting of the Ivys, some tension between children and parents, and between lovers and friends, and a special guest star I had no idea was coming by.
The second season of Batowoman has been dealing with two main storylines: the recapture of Batman’s stolen trophies, which are disturbingly creating a new wave of supervillains, and Ryan clashing with her birthmother, Jada Jet.
The surprisingly good second season of Batwoman finally comes to an end with “Power.” Black Mask makes his big play, alliances shift and reform, there are some more surprises and nods to the comics, and one issue I’ve commented on that puts Batwoman at a disadvantage compared to most of the other Arrowverse heroes finally gets rectified.
The second season of Batwoman has taken a hard look at several social justice issues. They have, in my opinion, managed to not do it in a preachy, club you over the head with platitudes manner (something Supergirl largely failed to do last season), but with some great writing and actual unflinching realism.
Batwoman’s second season has been really impressive. They’ve combined action, character growth, and social issues into a compelling, ongoing narrative. Until this one.
There have been a lot of twists and turns in the second season of Batwoman. From a new character in the starring role to a major change in the big villain to finally seeing the Batmobile (seriously, Luke, where did you think it was?), I’d say “unexpected” is a good word for just about everything that’s happened.
Well into season two, Batwoman is starting to more actively clash with the False Face society and their leader, Black Mask. With the chaos of Safiyah out of the way for now, as far as we can tell anyway, Team Bat can focus on troubles closer to hand.
Batwoman’s second, and very impressive, season is achieving a lot of complicated and difficult things at once. They’ve replaced their lead character, reoriented the main villain, and shaken things up for a few of the supporting characters. The show is also tackling social justice issues, and doing it in a good and engaging way.
