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.
episode seven of the season was a “back door pilot” for the potential series, which they called “Painkiller.” It has a good bit of potential.
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.
Stargirl, the newest show on both DC Universe and the CW, runs with the idea of legacy heroes.
After eight seasons, and I don’t think there’s a way to tell how many punches, kicks, arrows, and shattered windows, Arrow is almost over. The Crisis has come and gone, and the end is in sight.
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.
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.
