In a new interview with SFX Magazine, “Superman & Lois” showrunner Todd Helbing reveals that Clark and Lois will be dealing with multiple villains in the show’s second season.
“The fans are going to know the path we are going down really quickly. In a really good way, the Superman issue he has is driving the issues he has as a dad. This is a particular villain, that the more I talk about the more people are going to figure out who it is. But Superman is dealing with an enemy that is going to be a massive headache for him.”
“There are multiple villains, really,” Helbing adds. “Both villains affect Clark and Lois personally. We start out with one villain that is really more Superman, while setting up the Lois villain. They are not working together, but they hand off in a cool way this season. One of them comes to the forefront and, in a lot of ways, is more powerful than the other one. It will take the whole team, in a different way than last year, to stop this person.”

Titled “What Lies Beneath” the first episode of Season 2 of “Superman & Lois” is scheduled to air on The CW in the USA on Tuesday, January 11 at 8.00pm ET/PT.
“Superman is dealing with an enemy that is going to be a massive headache for him.”
I have an idea who it could be so I’m just going to throw it out there and say it. I think they’re talking about Brainiac!
Superman2878, I hope you’re right. It’s about time Brainiac and Superman share the screen in live-action format. If Brainiac is indeed in season 2, I hope it’s the same version from the “Krypton” TV show from few years ago. But since Brainiac is such a “big threat” I’m curious if he’ll actually be included in season 2 of “Superman & Lois.” Who knows? But I hope you’re right!
