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.
