too old for this
This show is so cute. I really like it.
SV? Super Villain?Okay, I love the SV style reference to other Supermen, done in those art styles.
The original Flamebird was... Clark Superman, right? And Nightwing was Bruce Batman? When they were adventuring in Kandor? The female Flamebird was just that heroine who was in love with Dick Nightwing but the first Flamebird was really a guy?
Also I don't watch the new Dragonball but someone said new Mxyzptlk looked like Supreme Kai so I looked up a pic.

WELL...if we want to get REALLY nerdy about it. For a long time in the comics, there WERE two different Mxys. The purple MxyZTPlk from Earth-2 (The Golden Age Earth) and the orange MxyZPTlk from Earth-1 (The "Main" Earth). And 5th Dimensional Imps are kind of prone to making meta-commentary in general. It happens more often with Bat-Mite, but Mxy does it too. "Crisis changed you, man, you used to be FUN!" Current retcons place the 5th Dimension outside of the multiverse as the realm of Imagination.But apparently he's not "of this world," which doesn't work. Are you asking me to believe there are multiple Mitzelpliks and this one's from another universe so there might be a local one, or is this a situation where canon multiverses are homages to other media, rather than the actual other media, such that there is only one Mitzelplik?
I THINK the implication is supposed to be that THIS particular team of Loises...Loisi...Lois-persons...are all from universes where THEIR Supermen turned evil. So, they all expect THIS Superman to turn evil too, since they've seen it happen personally.I liked the League of Lois thing, though obviously not them being all Superman haters because of a few bad apples.
I think it might be a bit of a commentary on Social Media, myself. How some people can feel bad about their own lives when they see the media feeds of their old friends or exes or just random celebrities. All the great food they eat and all the great vacations they take, and how it makes them feel bad about their own lives. How they don't feel as successful as all these other people online. How they don't have as great a job as these other people. But, that's all a highlight reel, and not the whole story.Our Lois being "Loser Lois" still sucks. I take it the contention is that current generations have a much harder time making it in the workplace...
Yeah, but that's kind of setting up a bit of dramatic irony. WE, the audience, knows that not all Supermen turn evil, but Lois doesn't. Lois isn't as nerdy as we are. This Lois doesn't particularly strike me as a comic book fan. She doesn't really have any experience with the multiverse like we do. WE, the audience, know all the tropes, but this was all new to Lois. This is probably the first time she's really thought about something like this.The big issue with this episode, though, is that it uses a multiverse story to tell us "Some Superman go bad," but in an infinite multiverse, there are evil dupes of everyone who isn't "necessarily good"
Not a big part, at least. I want to say there HAVE been some times when Lois has met with alternate versions of herself, since there are a LOT of comics. But...I'm having a hard time coming up with anything specific.Is the League of Lois part of comics?
I mean, it's basically just so we can watch them grow into the people we know them as. This is all a prequel/Year One type thing. Them starting out as interns gives them room to grow over a few seasons (...if we get more seasons of this show). It gives the writers a way (somewhat artificially) to get these characters to grow and change...without really changing much about them.First, let's be honest, there's no reason these people are interns.
It kind of felt like an abrupt sprint to a finale.For an episode pegged as Supes dealing with Super Hearing for the first time.... that certainly escalated quickly in different directions.
The fact that Lois never got to see the General despite him showing up in a very public place that was getting videoed a lot is further indication that he's her father.
