We at the GB nearly plotzed the other night when a major character*** on Supergirl turned out to be . . .a beloved DCU stalwart (see end note at the bottom if you want to be spoiled). Whoa! This was in the same episode that the main antagonist was a character usually relegated to the trivia section, Jemm, Son of Saturn (who in the comics is a hero, but did a villain turn for TV). This got us thinking – with opportunities for appearances on Supergirl, Flash, Arrow, and even the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow mini-series, what other DC comics aliens, whether obscure or high profile, would be welcome presences on TV?
It took a few minutes to sink in before I realized that it was the last time I would hear the Smallville theme song playing at the beginning of a new episode because tonight it happened: the series finale. I’ve been with the show many years, through the highs and the lows. Of course there were going to be terrible episodes I would despise over the course of the show and certain directions they took continuity that I don’t agree with but Smallville still remains one of my favorite shows of all time after ten seasons.
The episode opens with Chloe telling a child a story and then flashes back seven years earlier with Apokolips inexorably heading towards Earth…then the typical commercial break and theme song opening as I wait in anticipation!
I’m not sure what the general fan consensus was with Callum Blue’s performance as Zod, but even though I found him irksome at first, he definitely grew on me throughout season 9. By the end of the season he was a vile SOB, continuing on with his fetish of always wanting people to kneel for him. It will be good to see what became of him after all of the Kryptonians were transported to another world to live in peace. Something tells me that Zod wasn’t all that peaceful, or this in fact General Zod who took over Lex’s body in season 5/6, and not Major Zod from season 9. Actually from the looks of this picture I tend to lean towards it being the General version from season 5 and 6.
So is it just me or is that taking place in the Phantom Zone? If so, then it would appear it is General Zod since the last time he fought Clark it ended with him being sent back there. This episode will be taking place on April 29th in the episode called Dominion. I can’t wait! Now I just have to catch up on the last few episodes via DVR, because after all, the last episode of Smallville airs in May!
Everyone sound off in the comments section! Did you like Zod on Smallville or hate his kneeling loving face!?
