    Hello, my Legends Legionnaires! Legends is baaaack but on Mondays in Supergirl’s time slot, which means Supergirl is taking a two-month break while we get nine consecutive episodes of Legends of Tomorrow. My hope is that the day/time slot change will nab Legends the audience it deserves… It’s my fav show. Shhhh… don’t tell the other shows. Having lost Martin Stein, one half of Firestorm, in the massive Crisis on Earth X crossover, imagine my surprise that this episode starts […]

  • Riverdale S02 E12: Did Hiram order a mob hit? And Riverdale gets dark again with a (literal) bloody mess

    Hello Riverdale Class of 2018! It’s Richard from Zeus Comics! Wicked and Divine brought as more teen drama, more town drama, but its about that ending though! So I got conflicting signals from Archie this week. He kicks off the episode being the errand boy for Hiram Lodge. His eagerness is undercut by his continued involvement with FBI agent Adams (Who’s I’m still not confident is an FBI agent). So Archie gets invited to the Lodge “criminal” family poker tournament […]

    Hey Flash Fans! It’s Richard at Zeus Comics! It’s a new dark matter meta in our main plot and a cold case from 15 years ago in our subplot. Hey guys what’s your bet our subplot and main plot will collide? Nah – that’ll never happen.

  • Riverdale S02 E11: Wrestling singlets, Hiram and Archie tensions, and #DarkVeronica

    Hello Riverdale Class of 2018! It’s Richard from Zeus Comics! Okay so I kinda don’t care about Archie trying to win the approval and confidence of Veronica’s dad Hiram Lodge which is the main plot of the episode, but we did get the Riverdale wrestling team in singlets even if that also meant Hiram wrestling Archie to the ground… gross. Speaking of singlets, this episode was directed by Gregg Araki known mostly for new queer cinema. Whether it was Araki’s […]

Which brings me to this weeks Flashpoints Prankster How cool was it back in Season one when Mark Hamill reprised his role as Jesse James the Trickster. Of course being a different Universe that Trickster never battled the John Wesley Shipp/Barry Allen Flash from the 90s TV show… […]

    Hello, my Supergirl Superfriends! It’s the team-up no one expected:  Supergirl, Saturngirl, Livewire and Psy, the telepathic thief! Uh oh,that line up is kinda Suicide Squad-ish… Makes me nervous. Their objective? Break into the Kryptonian prison, Fort Rozz, to get info from Kryptonian Priestess Jindah Kol Rozz on Reign. Rozz is so feared that the prison was named after her. The rub? Supergirl tossed Fort Rozz into space at the end of season one and now it’s adrift in space […]
