prequel restrictions

It's 200 years before the birth of Superman. As a child, his grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) witnessed Seg's grandfather Val-El being sent into the Phantom Zone for opposing the new isolationist government and the House of El was stripped of its rank. He would grow up struggling with the lost of his family's standing. He is warned of impending doom from Brainiac by Earth time traveler Adam Strange. He has a secret relationship with Lyta Zod (Georgina Campbell). Her mother kills his parents for being part of the Black Zero rebellion. The big villains include Brainiac and General Zod from the future who is the child of Lyta and Seg-El.

I like the world of Krypton. I like most of the characters but I can do without Adam. I'm not familiar with this classic DC character. Quite frankly, I hope that character is much better than this. More than anything, Adam is unnecessary. He takes away agency from Seg-El. He muddies the water and diminishes the lead character. I want Seg-El to fight for his own reasons rather than some unknowable descendant or some preordained future. Adam is a tightly constricted guard rail forcing the story to its inevitable conclusion which leads to the show's main difficulty. It is a prequel and the story is obviously not allowed to have freedom of movement. It's two seasons and it runs out of steam by the second season although it does have the fun of introducing Lobo.
