DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow First Look And Name Dropping

dc_legends_of_tomorrow

I’ve only seen 6 episodes of The Flash and no episodes of Arrow so I’m probably not the right one to be posting this, but after the cut, a first extended look at DC and CW’s new spinoff series DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow.

I won’t spoil anything with regards to the “Name Dropping” reference in the title, but keep your ears open…

The Troubling Morality Of Flash Season Two

Let's be honest, Arrow's ethical choices are starting to rub off on the Flash.
Let’s be honest, Arrow’s ethical choices are starting to rub off on the Flash.

The first season of Flash was one of the most unexpected and fantastic surprises of the past year.  It was an amazing show with action, intrigue, fun characters, a fantastic story arc, and an overall optimistic worldview that was lacking in other superhero movies or TV shows.  It was so good I waived my typical rule of not letting my boys watch a primetime superhero show (Arrow, SHIELD) and allowed them to watch Flash–they loved it as well and we still watch some of the older episodes.  The first season finale is one of the best episodes of superhero TV ever.

But now the second season is two episodes in and while the storyline continues to build there are a couple of troubling morality implications.  I’m not condemning them…yet…but I am concerned.  Head after the break to find out what has me troubled.

Agents Of SHIELD Spin-Off? This Time For Sure? I Thought That Was Off…

Hey, It's One Interesting Character!
Hey, It’s One Interesting Character!

ABC and Marvel have said they may or may not have an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off featuring Mockingbird and her ex-husband-who-is-not-Hawkeye.

Well, now it looks like it’s back on.  I have some opinions after the cut.

DC and Marvel Character “Similarities”

2wWA4bC

Marvel and DC both have many characters that share strong similarities with their cross-company rival.  Sometimes it is a coincidence.  Two people have the same idea, no matter how novel, independent of each other.  Sometimes it is just because there are only so many archetypes.  Of course there is going to be some nearly identical characters.  Sometimes they aren’t even that similar.  We just want to make this list longer.  Other times, they are 100%, complete rip offs.  When DC/Marvel did the Amalgamation back in the 90’s, they could have just used the original.

See what you think after the break.
