People petitioning for a Superman CW show need to be careful what they wish for.
I like the Flash/Arrow/Supergirl crossovers we've gotten, but I don't want them to keep one going for a full season. Legends of Tomorrow burnt me out doing exactly that (though I'm all-in for some JSA, so I'm a hypocrite in some respects).

Now that I think about it, the weird-rear end boob window shirts were probably to hide the parts where the prosthetic chests merged into real skin. FX on a budget!

They're probably just trying to evoke the feel of the DCAU where Metallo's shirt (and synthetic skin) were always ripped exactly the same way every time he showed up.

I love the guy in the first panel with the knife in his back. He expression is so happy.

I wonder if they will do a Power Girl episode. I can certainly see them having Benoist play Kara Zor-L and well as Kara Danvers, and her pulling off the idea that the other is older.

They already did the evil clone as Bizzaro so they won't be doing the Justice League version of the story.

Looking forward to Mon-El getting shot by lead bullets and thrown into the phantom zone to save his life.

Wonder if they have the budget left to do an episode set in the 31st Century and show Mon-El with the Legion. Make THAT the super-crossover and I'd be happy.

They should make it so that Power Girl is Earth-Flarrow Kara. They could even do a whole plot about Barry finding her and convincing her she has powers because he knows her double.

Yeah but Spidey's a good guy so it's conceivable he pulls his punches.

The cyborgs were actually trying to kill them.

I think that's actually official canon - Spidey does hold back - but he pulls his punches to knock them out rather than kill them. Otto being able to just shrug him off makes no sense, but it's mostly acceptable. The other options would have been for Spidey to one-shot him with the movie being half as long, or choreograph their fights so that Spidey literally never gets past the arms.

This is really good, since we've already got a Flash villain running around giving people the powers their alternate-timeline doppelgangers had.

Given that there are no kryptonians on earth 1, we can only assume that Earth 1 is a dimension where krypton never blew up (or hasn't blown up yet) therefore kara would still be there. Or krypton blew up but they were sent to some other planet to be safe.

Speaking of which, I've never understood why such a highly advanced spacefaring race would only have 2 survivors. Did they not have colonies on other planets? Kryptonians living/working/visiting other planets? There were aliens from numerous species in that prison, so there was clearly a lively exchange of interstellar traffic. The galaxy should be littered with kryptonian refugees.

I think a lot of the recent incarnations have a thing about the Kryptonians having been a really stagnant, isolationist bunch towards the end.

Actually, there's an explanation! The Eradicator prevented it because Kryptonian culture is hilariously xenophobic and doesn't want anybody out of their control. If anybody left, the Eradicator altered them so they'd die quick without a Kryptonian environment. That's how we got the Daximites.

In the very first issue of Superior Spider-Man, when Doc Ock first goes out as Spider-Man, he literally punches Scorpions jaw off, and thinks "oh poo poo, Parker could have killed me any time he wanted, but never did".

Only problem is now Earth-Sad would have a Superperson. Actually, they should do it in the world where the JSA on Legends is appearing, as she was part of that group, though a later addition.

I always just accepted that Krypton was just a civilization that had reached its Apex and said "we don't need anything anywhere else" and just isolated themselves from everyone and were only inward looking. That's why Jor-El was always shown to be a brilliant outcast in most adaptions.

If they want Power Girl they can do another crossover, have her discovered on Flarrow Earth and then get stuck on Supergirl's Earth. Then she can be the stranger in a strange land like she's so often been in the comics and cause Kara future trouble.

I'm (irrationally) annoyed about Clark and Kara hanging out in National City while Superman happens to be in town. You're both super fast! You could totally have Clark continue to work in Metropolis while Superman is helping fight bad guys in National City. Kara offered to fly to Italy to pick up food for a date! Don't tell me that he wouldn't be able to handle this. You could even do some dumb sitcom subplot of him ducking out of a meeting for a few minutes to battle and then rush back (with a piece of rubble in his hair).

Okay, it's clear I wouldn't make a good TV writer. But still, Clark's visit including the goodbye at the end just seemed so "Look at us, we're on TV and the time we had with this actor is at an end!" that I got annoyed.

I fully expected Cat to reveal that she knew Clark was Superman and that she knew Kara was Supergirl before the show ended. Even if it was only her talking to herself.
Because, it should be super-obvious to her.

Also, I want Constantine to come back. He needs his own show again set firmly in the Arrowverse. Heck, Arrow and Flash are both in situations where he'd be helpful right about now.

I'm sure there are plans for a Legion episode or arc forward and back. Probably also an episode about her future/alternate universe and calling herself Power Girl.

He actually appeared in a single episode during the previous season of Arrow to help him expose the main villain's weakness. Ollie introduced him as an old ally from his years away from Star City, so he has a precedent of being established in-universe already. It's a shame they wasted him on such a bad plotline, but Constantine was a lot of fun to watch (even for someone like me who isn't familiar with the character).

There's a scene halfway through the series, John is possessed by a demon and he's in the Mexican prison where he just flips his poo poo and right there Matt owned that role and I wanted ten seasons of that.
