Not sure why people think they have Australian accents when 90% of the cast are English and talk with English accents in the programme.

Because most Americans can’t tell the difference

Have to agree Scotty! Done really well. Brianiac look pretty ominous.

I’m confused about something Scotty. I thought that Cameron Welsh said that Krypton was its own thing, and that it wasn’t part of any previous continuity belonging to tv,or movie. So how can Krypton be a prequel to Man of steel when they’re doing their own separate story? Thank you for your time Scotty. I do appreciate your time in reading my post.

I do see the insperation behind this series. I have another interesting question. In the Justice League Unlimited series, that dream Superman had in the episode “For the man who has everything”, was Krypton based on his memories or was he mostly dreaming of how krypton would be?

So did the dream he had bring up some memories of what his planet was like?

Just like our dreams, it is both options. Dreams are always our memories but usually completely mixed most of the times in weird ways so there are those weird dreams. Remembar that “For the Man…” is placed in the bronze age (same as silver but with less power) and he still retains memories of Krypton, with the addition of what he has learnt from the planet in the fortress. But most importantly, the Black Mercy (the plant) gives its host the dreams it thinks they like. If you take a good look at the comic and the series, Superman’s dream… Read more »
