I’ll try to address a couple of your concerns/queries Scotty. Firstly at the start of Crisis on Infinite Earths Clark and Lois had one child that was a baby. At the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths when the New Earth was formed that was altered to them having the teenage twins that we see in this pilot episode. When it comes Lois’ age as far as the actress is concerned she is only 2-4 years younger than I think Lois should be to get away with having 14 year old twins. Bitsie Tulloch is 40 this year. It would… Read more »

Since the CW got involved with all the DC characters it’s manipulated them in ways never though possible. They’re doing it again with this series. In the first place, him being Kryptonian and being physically compatible with an Earthling is ridiculous. If people like this kind of stuff and can appreciate it, then fine as well. But this series will revolve around Superman and his newly invented CW domesticated life. I know in order to have a weekly TV series there has to be a LOT of story line give and take. IMO they abused him in Supergirl and I’ve… Read more »

From what you’ve said about Superman being domesticated for Superman and Lois, I have to ask. What do you think about Clark’s intended proposal to Lois in BvS? It would have made him half way into being domesticated anyway if they were to continue down that route. So would you have the same complaints if they do go down that route for possible Man of Steel sequels?

I see no reason why the greatest superhero can’t and shouldn’t be happy and have a family. He saves people, helps people and stops criminals just like doctors, firefighters and cops do. And they live domesticated lives. If anything, it only adds to Superman’s growing and evolving history. And in my opinion would only introduce more fans to Superman. Looking online I’ve noticed a whole lot of positive reaction videos on YouTube about Superman and Lois’s first episode. And from what I’ve seen from the premier, Superman hasn’t been watered down at all. In fact I’d say he’s been strengthened… Read more »

Yes…good point. Personally I think Lois Lane has been done to death. I mean if you think about it, any companionship he takes on with a human, he’s going to out live. She’ll end up being an old crow and he’d watch his kids grow up and die as well. And then what?? He’s supposed to be an alien from another planet and all this supposed compatibility with humans would be a stretch. And yes I would feel the same regarding BvS or sequels. But on the big screen your talking about a 2 hour movie and it’s somewhat palpable.… Read more »

He might not out live her if he has a way to remove his powers later on in life. Much like Reeve’s version or Welling’s he might have a way to eventually take away his abilities. So he might grow old with her. And since he has children, the Superman mantle could be passed down to one of them when they reach adulthood and enter into their mid twenties. I think that’s a reasonable way to tell the story. A season by season approach,if that’s the direction of the story they would eventually go in years down the road for… Read more »

Loved you’re kickass review here, Scott! 😀

From my understanding, the reason that Superman’s two sons are teens in the Post-Crisis-main Arrowverse-Earth-Prime continuity is due to Crisis having reset Lois and Clark’s continuity to the point now where they have 2 teen sons in this Post-Crisis take on 2021. 🙂
