Young Justice: Another Freak

After a lot of setup, we get a tragic origin of an important character in the DC Universe, especially in the ranks of the younger ones. There’s also a first day of school, the introduction of a minor Bat-character, a much-needed attitude adjustment, and a few deep cuts for trivial side characters.

Stargirl: Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite

It’s hard not to have tragedy when you open the series with an entire team of legendary heroes being slaughtered. But now, a new hero has risen, and Stargirl is continuing her ill-advised attempt to reform the Justice Society of America.

Stargirl: Wildcat

Last episode, Icicle, was amazing, hitting a great mix of comedy, action, tragedy, and introducing a villain who is actually menacing. Sadly, I think they hit a bump in the road with “Wildcat,” the next episode.

Watchmen: Little Fear of Lightning

Wade Tillman, the masked cop Looking Glass, is one of the most interesting. I admit to some bias, as he’s apparently loosely based on the Question/Rorschach, the Question being a favorite of mine, and his southern delivery with a keen mind behind it reminds me a lot of Eugene from The Walking Dead, another show I very much enjoy.
