I’ve been a fan of superheroes my entire life, although I’ve never had a big interest in Superman himself, which is a bit ironic considering he’s the character that started the entire industry. I did like the Christopher Reeve movies, and the DC Animated Universe cartoon was decent. The ever-expanding Arrowverse finally added a Superman to their roster, and it was the best version of the character I’d seen in many years, much better than the darker version that popped up in the recent movies and the “New 52” reboot. I was interested when they announced the new “Superman and Lois” show and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it through the first season. It’s too bad we’ve reached the end of a great season, but at least we know there will be a season two, and hopefully some appearances throughout the Arrowverse to look forward to. As this is a season finale, there may be some spoilers below.
Season seven of The Flash reaches its end amid the chaos of the Godspeed war. We get a resolution to that, several allies working together, an old enemy coming back, and a nice little family scene at the end. To my surprise, there was no big cliffhanger, which the CW usually does on their season finales.
The end is near… of season seven, anyway. The beginning of the two-part season finale has speedsters at war, two old friends coming back, more nods to the comics, and another attempt at redeeming a supervillain.
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.
After four seasons, fifty-eight episodes, and far too much Tobias Whale, Black Lightning finally comes to an end. I’m going to miss this show, although not some of the recurring situations the characters kept trapping themselves in.
The first, but hopefully not last (rumors abound, but no confirmations) season of the Falcon and the Winter Soldier wraps up with “One World, One People,” the slogan of the Flag-Smashers.
Like many shows in 2020, the Doom Patrol had to change things around a lot due to the COVID pandemic. What was supposed to be ten episodes became nine, and there was a lot of scrambling to wrap up the season.
WandaVision has been an amazing ride, but the end is finally here. The final episode has some interesting conflicts, and leaves a few plot threads open for the future of some of the characters.
Harley Quinn’s second season comes to a very bizarre end, but then, what else would you expect from this show?
After an enjoyable seven seasons, it’s time to say goodbye to some old friends.
