“Your life falling apart doesn’t mean you’re special. It means you’re human.”

The Superman character was a part of the CW Universe cross-overs with Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, Black Lightning, and Legends of Tomorrow.

Clark/Superman is played by Tyler Hoechlin best known for his role in Teen Wolf. The series follows Clark and Lois as the transition from city life with twin teenagers to rural life back at the Farm Clark grew up in after his mom’s passing. The stories show a struggle between trying to be a father and a superhero all at the same time. Giving Superman a more realistic feel and that even a god-like superhero suffers the same human mistakes as a parent that the rest of the world does. There are several twists throughout the story that brings light to parenting.

Overall I found this series entertaining. The characters were developed well including throwing in mental illness and how parents have to cope with it with their children. The choices of a parent superhero are very difficult and the writers portrayed this aspect of it real well. I actually felt as if I was a part of the show and felt less like a comic book. The story grew but at times I felt I was watching a bit of Smallville minus the superboy feel. They need to stick to original story and bring in less built villains. Without giving too much away they discover a new kryptonite that has the ability to give others superman-like powers.  This was a decent twist to the story but should only last a few episodes and not dwell on it. I for one would like the show focus on the difference between the twins(again do not want to give too much away). This series has potential for staying power and I recommend watching and making your own judgment. It’s entertaining action-packed and binge-worthy.  Be sure to check out the cross-over events as he is a part of it as well.

Season one is available now at many locations.
