It’s been a really hectic busy time in the days post NY Comic Con and much like the previous years, the immediate days and weeks that follow find us rallying the charge behind the superhero themed television shows. By my count, the DC Comics universe has six unique shows, and most of these are in a connected universe. Now we are up to the Season 3 Premiere of “Supergirl” which airs this evening. I’ve snagged the dramatic poster and offered up some reminder premise and casting down below before my editorial viewpoints.
Season 3 Recap: In the third season, Kara struggles with the loss of Mon-El after he is forced to leave Earth. When Mon-El returns, he reveals that he has time-traveled to the 31st century and founded the Legion, alongside marrying Imra Ardeen. J’onn discovers his father M’yrnn J’onzz is alive and Alex deals with her heartbreak after breaking up with Maggie. Kara and Alex’s new friend, Samantha Arias, is unknowingly another Kryptonian survivor, and begins a transformation from a loving single mother into the world-killing weapon known as Reign, who serves a coven headed by her biological mother Selena.

Yesterday, the 2018 Comic Con International: San Diego (or SDCC) continued into what appears to have been its busiest of days. Resultant of the offerings, we’ve been loading up the assorted sneak peeks and trailers that have been revealed across the conventions four days. If you’ve missed any of them, just click HERE for the rundown of these narratives. On Saturday, The CW Network unveiled its trailers for the DC Universe of shows and I’ve loaded them in to run across the day. Let’s continue with “Supergirl”, a show that once aired on CBS but now fits firmly onto a space that makes more sense. Dare I say “Up, Up and Away….”

As a fan of the live-action television shows that The CW Network has been putting out there for the world’s greatest DC Comics superheroes and villains, I am happy to share that the next animated feature will be hitting a computer screen or mobile device of your choice with “Freedom Fighters: The Ray”. Check out the cool poster and some premise and casting.
The Premise: Raymond “Ray” Terrill is a lawyer who discovers a doppelganger of himself from another Earth. The man disappears, and gives him light-based powers, and he is recruited to join the Freedom Fighters.
We’re only a few days away from this years crossover on The CW Entertainment network and as previously noted, the crossover will hit “Supergirl”, “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Legends Of Tomorrow”. We’ve recently received a trailer for the epic event, and its presented below for your enjoyment. Then I repeated the overall premise and characters you will see over the four shows.
The Premise: Barry Allen and Iris West’s friends come to Central City for their wedding, only for the event to be disrupted by Nazi invaders from the parallel world Earth-X, including fascist doppelgängers of Barry’s allies Oliver Queen and Kara Danvers and enemy Eobard Thawne, who come to Earth-1 with a deadly agenda. In addition, the superheroes from Earth-X, including Citizen Cold (a doppelgänger of Leonard Snart) and The Ray, also arrive to help Barry and his friends to stop them. (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I felt that I said my peace when I showcased the poster in September, but I will repeat it once more for good measure “Last year’s “Invasion” story line was pretty good but I will have to say that I am super interested in this one since I know that Earth-X is the world in the Multiverse for the Freedom Fighters who I always enjoyed in the comics. Despite their very limited run of a series. I’ll cross my fingers that we get Uncle Sam somewhere in this or Human Bomb at least. Good characters that would make for interesting crossovers on this and future episodes. I still watch all four of the shows and am curious to see how Black Lightning will do when it makes its premiere”. What about you readers? Are you enjoying these programs and does this new crossover event pique your interest a little more after the trailer??? Let me know down below.
