My Adventures With Superman – The Machine Who Would Be Empire – Assessment: Right here’s Brainiac


We lastly get affirmation of who or what’s pulling Kara’s strings this episode. After I noticed the machines I figured it will be Brainiac however I had a bit of doubt as a consequence of his full design overhaul. He doesn’t appear like the standard Brainiac I’m used to however this can be a totally different fashion and model of Superman so I’m not upset with the stylistic change to one in every of Superman’s biggest villains. Case and level, take a look at Lex Luthor. 

The episode was actually good and maybe my favourite of the season up to now. Clark wakes up on Kara’s ship and they’re in deep house. In fact Clark is upset and Kara explains that “father” and her are rebuilding the Kryptonian empire. We obtained some actually nice easter eggs throughout these scenes just like the point out and a go to to Thanagar.

Clark turning blue with lighting and displaying new powers each time he’s enraged is an exquisite contact to this beloved character. Kara and Clark having an outer house snowball combat was so pure and is clearly constructing a bond between the cousins, setting the tempo for what we all know their friendship and household relationship to be. Though there are variations of Superman and Supergirl as in a romantic relationship. In Peter David’s Supergirl sequence, Linda Danvers (Supergirl) is married to Superman (Silver Age). I’m glad that on this present they’ve made them cousins which is essentially the most well-known model. The scenes of them exhibiting the opposite reminiscences of Krypton and Earth added an emotional layer as effectively.

Kara exhibits some human feelings by conserving a locker full of gadgets from the planets she has visited and most significantly photos from her time spent with Jimmy. Some teasing from her little cousin makes her blush. 

When Kara and Clark present as much as Thanagar it’s a wasteland and right here is after we start to see that Kara has been lied to by her “father” however earlier than she will work out what’s going on robots present as much as deliver them in. We see the reveal of Brainiac and the way he controls Kara. After he sends her away he checks Clark’s powers and we get to much more easter eggs – Inexperienced Lantern. When Brainiac reveals he evil plans and overpowers Superman we all know the extent of the worlds he has conquered with the assistance of a thoughts managed Kara as she breaks by means of his thoughts management and visits the planets she destroyed.

On her return she is greeted by Jimmy, Lois and one other well-known DC character – an excellent clever Gorilla. This episode was so nice. It touched on all of the emotional beats. Clark not eager to name Lois his girlfriend could possibly be for a number of causes – to maintain her secure from Kara or as a result of truth when he final noticed her they had been on the verge of a breakup. Certainly it’s a good signal that she is on her approach to try to rescue him.
