Do we want a new thread for each episode or can be start a season thread?

After I was informed my post was misplaced I moved it here.

The title of the thread will have to change anyway because I typed S2 instead of S1.

So here's where we stand.

"Captain Luthor" is a Black man who came from a planet destroyed by Superman, and he wants revenge.

He served with General Lane in combat at a time when a man who appeared to be Superman was attacking the troops.

In the universe where we have seen Tyler's Superman, "Lex Luthor" is a goofball played by Jon Cryer.

I thought Lois had been fired, but apparently not, and Morgan Edge did a terrible thing to her. I was pleased with what she did as a result. I just knew she would somehow end up working for the Smallville newspaper. I live near a town a lot like Smallville, except maybe larger and surrounded by more populated communities, though there are some farms. And I guarantee it has more than one person working there.

I'm curious as to what Clark is doing for money because even if he planted crops now, they would take a while to grow.

So now we know where Jordan got his name. I feel bad for him now that the AI Jor-El has evaluated him. Jonathan Jr., on the other hand, is not getting the respect he deserves or even the chance to prove himself as a football player.

Kyle's behavior toward Edge reminds me of blue collar workers and a certain real estate developer with orange hair who also made big promises.

The AI in the fortress was a ******. Then again, he is an AI. I was a heavy comic reader (DC Only!) back when Morgan Edge took over. (Boy I wish I had glommed onto those "Uncanny Xmen comics) Anyway I am watching and waiting. Waiting for the inevitable 12 trans characters...this is the CW after all. Not a bad thing its just that superheroes are a subset of the population as are trans folks. you wouldnt think 50% of a cast would fall into that category like on Supergirl. Melissa Benoist is so wonderful.

How does Clark get money? He has rich friends named Bruce and Oliver. Or he just puts the squeeze on some pieces of coal.
And if Lois is the world-class, Pulitzer-winning journalist she is in the comics, then she's probably managed to squirrel away a fair amount over the years...book deals and such.

Plus they'll probably make enough on selling the Metropolis townhouse to cause some tax headaches... :D

Some thoughts I had watching the second episode...

For someone who has a super-jealous boyfriend, Lana's daughter sure doesn't spend much time with him.

The editing in the scene at the barbecue confused me. It went from seemingly the middle of the afternoon in Kansas to pitch black at the "Department of Defense", which is presumably near Washington. It was like there was a scene (and at least a couple hours) missing.

Oddly, in Luthor's reality, Superman is a heartless killer. Yet, in order to save himself during their fight, Luthor banked on Superman choosing to save the city rather than finishing off Luthor.

Presumably, they didn't wrap up the whole mystery around Jordan's powers in the second episode of the series, so I assume there will be more twists. If Jordan's powers aren't something that's always available, maybe Jonathan has powers too and they just didn't manifest at the same time as Jordan.

I also doubt it's a coincidence that Jordan's powers only appeared at time when both the brothers were in danger. My guess is that Jonathan somehow plays a role in activating or amplifying his powers. I predict that at some point, Clark will need to take both the boys to the Fortress and that's when the Jor-El AI will notice that Jordan's power readings are near Clark's levels.

I think there were a brother and sister character on Heroes in the later seasons that did that as well.
There was a brother and sister character on the even more recent The Gifted, on FOX. Sort of like junior X-Men. The sister was played by Natalie Alyn Lind, and their parents were played by Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker. Show was cancelled after two seasons. I liked it. Great cast. If it wasn't Marvel, vs DC, it would be a good fit for the CW.

That usually depends on how "popular" a show is. I figured since this was the first season it would make more sense to create one thread per episode. Season threads also tend to get less traffic if people aren't caught up.
I get that. Makes sense. My opinion was mostly driven by being lazy and not wanting to hunt for a new thread every week. Lol
