Trivia

Not based directly on a DC Comics publication. Ironically, though, their main competition Marvel published a series titled "Powerless" in 2004 that explored Marvel's characters if they had never gained superpowers. See more »

A refreshing change of pace
21 April 2017 | by adaa-51531See all my reviews

It was exactly what I expected from the previews: a superhero show that doesn't take itself too seriously. By far my favorite part is that the show takes a world filled with superheroes and makes the characters find it boring—which, if super-villain attacks happened as frequently as the comic books make them seem, would absolutely happen. Reminds me of Steelheart, by Brandon Sanderson, although those books take themselves far more seriously.

Also, the costume and casting, etc, serve to make the show look like a comic book. I don't normally notice stuff like that, but I thought the behind the scenes work was spot on. It's still growing, but I think it's definitely got a lot of potential. Of course, it'll probably be canceled before it can reach it, which will be disappointing.
