Supergirl: S2E2 The Last Children of Krypton

We continue with Kara & Clark continuing to work together in National City. Clark & Hank are still now pleased to be around each other and the cause of this is soon reviled.

At CatCo Kara is introduced to her new boss as a reporter. Ms Grant decided to go to different things and appoints James as her successor.

Meanwhile Project Cadmus has a new prototype cyborg which is enhanced by kryptonite which was stolen from the DEO. It’s up to Clark & Kara to stop him.

As the second season continues to be established a few of the characters are moved around into new positions for the coming season.

Tyler Hoechlin one again guest stars as The Man of Steel and continues to perform quite well in the role. I did find that the interactions between Snapper Carr & Kara did not feel quite right to me perhaps this will settle down a bit as I become accustom to the new character.

Generally however this episode continues to build on the strengths of the season opener.

Supergirl S2E1: The Adventures of Supergirl

Season 2 of Supergirl kickes off right where season 1 finished with Martian Manhunter and Supergirl investigating an object that crashed to earth. As Kara continues to work out what job she wants to do her date with James Olsen is interrupted by an emergency with the maiden flight of The Venture. With the help of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) they save the ship and all hands.

Supergirl brings her cousin to the DEO where clearly something between Hank and the man of steel is not quite right. Regardless Superman assists in the investigation with the events on The Venture. Investigations lead them to Lena Luthor (sister of Lex) who claims she is trying to rebrand her family’s business. As things unfold and with the possibility of a third kryptonian on earth season 2 is off to an interesting start.

Season 2 of Supergirl is off to quite a strong start. We see the continued development of Supergirl/Kara and we see some interesting changes with some of the other characters as we come into the new season.

The inclusion of Superman/Clark Kent played by Tyler Hoechlin was done quite well I did not feel he overshadowed the show and complimented it rather nicely. Tyler being cast in the role was a nice move he fitted the bill quite well. Plus this version of Superman saved more people in 5 minutes in this episode than the movie version from Man of Steel saved in an entire movie.

Sometimes it is said that the start of a second season of a tv show is more critical than the pilot episode because sometimes it is the second season that can make or break a show. So far Supergirl season 2 is off to a reasonable start which hopefully it can carry throughout the season.

Superhero Crossovers

It’s the season for Superhero crossover both on the movie screen and in our living rooms with the recently released Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice in cinema and the much anticipated Supergirl & Flash episode in season 1 of Superegirl World’s Finest on our tv streams.

This post does not serve as a review for either of the above, they will be separate posts later on. This post is about our greatest heroes meeting and the awesomeness that creates.

It’s always great to sit down and watch a movie or tv series featuring our favourite superhero whether it is the 1977 Christopher Reeve Superman, the 1989 Tim Burton Batman film, the 1990’s tv cartoon of the X-Men or the currently running CBS series Supergirl. These movies and shows allow us to escape to another world and allow our favourite heroes to entertain us in a world setting which is not far removed from the one we live in.

Crossovers in comics have been happening for years so of course it stands to reason as most of our Superheros find their origin in comic books that when these heroes make their transition to our screens that there will be crossovers there too.

When two (or more) of these titans meeting in a crossover on the tv or the big screen then the awesomeness of what we are watch increases greatly. We know that when our heroes crossover that the adventure and excitement will go up hugely. I guess this is one of the main reason why movie crossovers do especially well at the box office.

It would be interesting to see crossovers across the different universes of Marvel & DC but I highly doubt this would happen due to franchise competition.

So with that in mind which Crossovers would you like to see both in the Marvel & DC universes. Also if franchise was no boundary which Marvel/DC crossovers would you like to see?
