Gotham Knights: Pilot

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. I have a lot of questions about characters either referred to in passing or not named at all, but I hope we’ll get there.

Naomi: Pilot

Now, they’re going in a different direction, with a show starring Naomi. Naomi is different from the other headliners in many ways. She’s a Black female, she’s not well known outside comics (or even inside them), and she’s a recent creation, first appearing in 2019.

Superman and Lois: Pilot

Superman and Lois absolutely respects their source material, and does a great job giving a few changes that work in the modern era without making everything dark, edgy, and mean, or ridiculously saccharine sweet. It manages to be about family and get the tone right for the dynamics, and still have plenty of Super-action.

Swamp Thing: Pilot

So far, DC Universe has given us gritty teen angst with Titans, and absurdist action/comedy with Doom Patrol. Swamp Thing, their third live action show, seems more like horror with some mysticism, based on a few supporting characters we see.

Doom Patrol: Pilot

    In 1963, a team dubbed “The World’s Strangest Superheroes” made their debut. While the description of a team of people with freakish powers, protecting a world that fears them, led by a brilliant man in a wheelchair might sound familiar, the Doom Patrol actually appeared a few months before Marvel’s X-Men.
