The Strangest Adventures has covered the wildly successful Flash TV show, now Greg Berlanti, creator of that show and Arrow, has created two more comic book based shows. The first one is Supergirl, which debuts on CBS on September 26th, 2015. I’ve seen the pilot already, got it at this years Awesome Con. Thankfully this is not another Smallville, a show that took 10 seasons before the hero gets into costume-in the last 20 seconds of the show! In the pilot Supergirl is in costume long before the end of the first episode. Melissa Benoist plays Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin. I won’t spoil the show by revealing too much but the show includes Superman’s associates such as Cat Grant, Lucy Lane, and Jimmy Olsen, and his enemies such as Vartox, Reactron, Live Wire and Hellgrammite. Superman is only seen as a streak in the sky and the producer says he won’t appear otherwise on this show. Fans are hoping for a crossover between Supergirl and Flash and Arrow but so far, no confirmation of that but they are combining promotions for both shows in Variety so it’s a start.

The next show will air in January 2016, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, a spin off of The Flash and Arrow. A diverse group of heroes and villains help time traveling Rip Hunter fight the immortal Vandal Savage, in an adventure that spans time and space, to save the human race from destruction. Characters include The Atom, Firestorm, Hawkgirl, Hawkman, White Canary,  Captain Cold and Heat Wave. I’ll let the video tell the rest of the story.

This may be silly to some of you but the Strangest Adventures are looking forward to these shows, sure beats reality TV!
