Superhero Shows of 2019

RETURNING: GOTHAM (SEASON FIVE)

Commissioner Gordon through the streets of Gotham as he goes up against the burgeoning ranks of criminals who will one day fill Batman’s Rogue Gallery. Speaking of Batman, young Bruce Wayne has grown from callow orphan to the makings of a true superhero.

It’s been an enjoyable hero’s journey during a time period that hadn’t been covered before, and now, as Batman teeters on the cusp of becoming The Caped Crusader, here’s hoping the conclusion will satisfy longtime fans of the show.

DOOM PATROL

Marvel’s New Warriors is to the Avengers, Doom Patrol is similar to the Justice League, with members that aren’t quite so well-known, and whose powers aren’t quite so polished. It consists of Elasti-Woman, Crazy Jane, Cyborg, Robotman, Mr. Nobody, The Chief, and Negative Man.

SWAMP THING

 Alec Holland and his contact with a dangerous swamp-borne virus in Louisiana. He will work with local law enforcement to protect his local town, as well as the natural world from a variety of supernatural threats, all while keeping a firm grasp on his humanity. Swamp Thing comes out July 2019 on DC Universe.

THE BOYS

Amazon Studios has The Boys coming in 2019, a series which offers a hard-hitting look into a world where superheroes have abused their popularity, wealth, status, and influence. It focuses specifically on a group of novice superhumans that become The Seven: the seven most well-known superheroes in the world managed by the global conglomerate, Vought.

With alum from House of Cards and Supernatural, as well as big names like Karl Urban and Simon Pegg, the hour-long superhero drama is sure to turn out a subversive take on the genre amidst the slightly peppier fair for the year. It premieres exclusively on Amazon Prime.

STARGIRL

With a nod to the nostalgia of 80s retro camp comes Stargirl, based on the comic book character created in 1999 by Geoff Johns, who will also write the first episode. It follows Courtney Whitmore (based on Johns’ own sister, who passed away tragically in 1996), a smart, athletic teenager who discovers that her step-father used to be a sidekick for a superhero.

 THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY

umbrella-academy-header

 Born as one of several dozen children to mothers that have never displayed signs of pregnancy since their birth in 1989, each child has unique abilities. Seven were adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who intends for them to use their powers to help the world.

When the six remaining children learn of the passing of their adoptive father when they are in their thirties, they try to come together after a fractured adolescence in order to solve the mystery of his demise as the threat of a global apocalypse looms. It will debut on February 15th, 2019 on Netflix.

CLOAK & DAGGER (SEASON TWO)

With a romance specifically geared towards the superhero genre, its two leads have unique powers that seem to work much better together than apart, though their budding feelings for each other complicates it.

The series was greenlit for a second season almost halfway through the first, as ratings remained high and several other Marvel shows were getting axed. Season two premieres on Freeform in fall of 2019.

YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS (SEASON THREE)

Young Justice Outsiders

. Originally airing on Cartoon Network, it returns on DC’s digital streaming service for a third season called Young Justice: Outsiders, which, if proven popular, has the potential to lead to a fourth and fifth season.

Amid the furor for Titans, Young Justice: Outsiders will premier just in time to fill the spot that the live action series leaves once it finishes its first season. Fans will be able to see The Flash and all their favorite young DC characters January 4th, 2019 as part of DC Universe.

 HARLEY QUINN

Harley Quinn made a huge impression as The Joker‚Äôs girlfriend and partner in crime in¬†Batman: The Animated Series¬†in the ‚Äė90s. After the success of her live-action appearance in¬†Suicide Squad,¬†as well as her various appearances in animated films over the years, it was only a matter of time before she was the focus of her own show.Harley‚Äôs adventures after¬†she breaks up¬†with Joker, befriends Poison Ivy, and attempts to join the Legion of Doom. It will premier on DC Universe, DC‚Äôs digital streaming service, alongside¬†Swamp Thing¬†and¬†Doom Patrol.

 LEGION (SEASON THREE)

legion season 2

 Season two was a roller coaster ride of emotions and revelations, with explosive uses of mental powers that unveiled new truths about the mental patient that could be the son of the famous Professor Charles Xavier. The character of David Haller/Legion, whose psionic powers in the comics allowed him to take on the personalities (and thus powers) of hundreds of superheroes, has been a hard subject to capture, but the series does it justice with it

KRYPTON (SEASON TWO)

¬†Man Of Steel‚Äôs family and homeworld,¬†Krypton¬†may have been off to a rocky start with its first season, but its unique subject matter, time period, and engaging aesthetic built the show a steadfast, loyal following, resulting in it being greenlit for a second season.Taking place many years before the planet’s destruction, to support prophecies about Krypton‚Äôs impending doom is deemed insanity. Therefore, it‚Äôs up to Seyg-El, Superman‚Äôs grandfather, to fight to maintain the good reputation of the House of El, even amidst the slander of its name. It will get a second season in mid-May on the SyFy channel.

 BATWOMAN

Batwoman Ruby Rose

One of the best things about the ‚ÄúElseworlds‚Ä̬†crossover event this year was the premier appearance of Batwoman. Ruby Rose will star in her own television series for the CW as Kate Kane, cousin to Bruce Wayne and fellow member of the Bat Family.

A strong proponent of social justice, as well as a highly-trained martial artist, Kate Kane will clean up the streets of Gotham with her own patented method of eliminating the criminal element now that Batman has been missing for several years. Her free-spirited nature and unorthodox methods should make for some arresting television come fall 2019

Metropolis

  • DC UNIVERSE
  • 1 season
  • Superhero, Drama

Set in the wondrous and awe-inspiring City of Tomorrow before the arrival of Superman, Metropolis follows Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.

Protocol Orphans

Fox is working on an adaptation of the graphic novel Protocol Orphans. Based on the graphic novel co-created by actor Peter Facinelli, Protocol Orphanscenters on a foster home of orphans who are trained as covert operatives for the US Government. The BOOM! Studios production will be written by Amanda Segel (Person of Interest).

Lucifer

Fox‚Äôs adaptation of Vertigo Comics‚Äô¬†Lucifer¬†series has¬†sparked a little controversy, but is still set to hit our screens soon. It’s been adapted for the screen by¬†Californication‚Äôs Tom Kapinos. This take on Satan himself was originally a spin-off from Neil Gaiman‚Äôs¬†The Sandman¬†comic series.

Styled on David Bowie, this version of the Father Of Lies leaves his job in Hell for a more glamorous life in Los Angeles. Here, in the TV version, he will start helping solve local crimes (that bit’s a departure from the comics).

COMING IN 2019: WATCHMEN (HBO)

Watchmen HBO Yellow Masks Police

Fans of Alan Moore’s stunning graphic novel had plenty to be excited about when HBO announced its plans to bring the Watchmen to the silver screen in the form of a new series. While news of the new series is reason enough to be excited, fans can rest assured that showrunner Damon Lindelof, who has worked on Lost and another HBO series The Leftovers, intends to respect the original material while remixing some new elements into the familiar settings. Watchmen won’t be a straight adaptation or a sequel, but whatever it is, there’s plenty of reason to be excited for its premiere later this year

COMING IN 2019: RAISING DION (NETFLIX)

Raising Dion is a different take on a slightly worn out genre. The series will follow the titular Dion, a young boy whose powers seem to be growing more and more every day, and his mother as she tries to raise a responsible young superhero of color. Raising Dion will be based on the comic of the same name written by Dennis Liu and illustrated by Jason Piperberg. While there hasn’t been much news announced recently, Michael B. Jordan is said to be attached to the project and that’s plenty of reason to be excited about the series premiere in and of itself.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ‚Äď September 17

Batwoman,’ ‘Riverdale’ Spinoff ‘Katy Keene’ and ‘Nancy Drew’ Picked Up to Series by The CW

Batwoman (Kate Kane).pngBatwoman Comics Recommendations - Cover

 

 Tande will play Sophie Moore. After graduating from military academy, Sophie rose through the ranks to become a high-level private security agent and one of Gotham’s staunchest protectors. Despite her bite and regimented outlook, Sophie has a soft side, illuminated by Kate Kane’s return.

Johnson will portray Luke Fox. A Dark Knight loyalist and son of Wayne‚Äôs R&D director Lucius Fox, Luke works to keep Wayne Tower secure in his boss‚Äôs absence. While Luke considers himself the guardian of all things Batman ‚ÄĒ specifically his symbol ‚ÄĒ he also recognizes the city‚Äôs need for a new hero

is Mary Hamilton. Excitable, talkative, and an influencer-in-the-making, Mary is Kate Kane’s step-sister and polar opposite. But what Mary lacks in a filter, she makes up for with her compassion for Gotham’s underserved communities, proving she has more in common with Kate than she thinks.

 

Kate Kane is a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by the superhero Batman and chooses, like him, to put her wealth and resources towards a campaign to fight crime as a masked vigilante in her home of Gotham City

Bruce Wayne was robbed of both of his parents when he was just a small child, but his work as Batman has inspired those more fortunate than he was to follow his lead.

Trained by the military, Kate Kane was an heiress inspired to fight crime by the Dark Knight’s example after he rescued her from a mugger. But Kate’s story is unique. One of the few openly gay superheroes, she struggles for respect in her personal life as she protects all of Gotham City’s citizens, whether they respect her or not.

The original Batwoman, Kathy Kane, acted as a female counterpart to Batman with her side-kick Bat-Girl and romantically pursued Batman.

In the modern era, her legacy is taken up by the army brat¬†Kate Kane, a lesbian expelled from¬†West Point¬†due to her sexuality. She is¬†Bruce Wayne’s cousin – her father¬†Jacob Kane¬†being the brother of¬†Martha Kane Wayne, Bruce’s mother. Kate Kane has been involved with the¬†Batman Family,¬†Batman Incorporated, and the¬†Female Furies.

The Kate Kane version of Batwoman was later adapted for the 2016¬†direct-to-video¬†animated¬†film¬†Batman: Bad Blood.¬†Ruby Rose¬†portrays the character in her¬†live-action¬†debut during¬†The CW’s 2018¬†Arrowverse¬†crossover “Elseworlds”. Rose is set to star in her own¬†television series¬†set in the Arrowverse. She will also be part of the crossover¬†Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Civilian

Sitting at that desk, staring out that window, watching this city that we grew up in rot at its core, you find a way not to break.
‚ÄĒKate to¬†Kara Danvers

Kate Kane is a wealthy individual and the cousin of Bruce Wayne. She is secretly the vigilante known as Batwoman.

Abilities

  • Peak of human physical condition:¬†As a vigilante, Kate is in the best physical condition, strong enough to throw her enemies into the air and quickly master opponents much larger than her with relative ease. In fact, her physical strength seems to be even a bit inhuman, as she succeeded to lift and throw around full grown men with ease.
    • Acrobatics/Free-running:¬†Since becoming Batwoman, Kate has developed free-running skills and can fall from a height of several feet without hurting herself. Her abilities allow her to dodge and attack with fluidity from different directions without losing balance.
  • Master hand-to-hand combatant/Martial artist:¬†Kate is a highly competent unarmed combatant and an extremely skilled martial artist. She was able to quickly subdue¬†Oliver Queen¬†and¬†Barry Allenwhen reality was altered and they had each other’s powers and skills, although it took them by surprise.
    • Expert knife thrower:¬†Kate has shown to have great accuracy when she threw her Batarang at an escaped inmate at Arkham Asylum and caught her Batarang returning back to her after subduing the inmate.
  • Intimidation:¬†As Batwoman, Kate has an intimidating appearance, capable of instilling fear in her enemies. This was seen when a criminal, from¬†Arkham Asylum, cried out of fear when he saw Batwoman.
  • Keen intellect:¬†Kate is a very perceptive individual, as she quickly determined that Supergirl was Kara Danvers.
  • Stealth/Infiltration:¬†Kate is extremely secretive, being able to approach other people without being seen

Equipment

However, they were too late, as his wife had been executed and his daughter Elizabeth was believed to be dead. He rescued Kate himself, but she was traumatized by the sight of her dead mother and sister.[1]

‘Harry Potter’ Characters People With Bipolar Disorder Relate

1. Remus Lupin

remus lupin

Professor Remus Lupin taught Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts, but resigned when Snape revealed he was actually a werewolf. Still, he was a close friend of Harry’s and even named Harry as his son’s godfather.

He’s very charismatic, fun, smart, and compassionate, but then on the flip side, he turns into this beast. I feel like with my bipolar, when I’m on my up days, I’m as equally charismatic, but on my down days, it’s easier for me to be mad and I’ll lash out. But, he’s able to eventually manage being a werewolf and has friends who help him along the way. I’m fortunate enough to have a similar support system and I’m learning how to manage and cope.

2. Luna Lovegood

hermione granger

Luna is a student at Hogwarts known for her eccentric, quirky personality. Even though she often appeared ‚Äúdistant‚ÄĚ and dreamy and wasn‚Äôt always taken seriously by other people, she was loyal to Harry and frequently provided useful information and guidance.

 

3. Dobby

draco malfoy

Lovable house elf Dobby served the Malfoy family, until Harry freed him. He was a fierce defender of Harry and his friends, even helping rescue them from Death Eaters which resulted in him being fatally wounded by Bellatrix Lestrange.

3. Hermione Granger

Albus Dumbledore was one of the most powerful wizards to resist Voldemort, and served as Headmaster of Hogwarts for many years. He was a frequent source of wisdom and comfort to Harry, even after his death.

 

6. Sirius Black

Sirius Black was an old friend of Lily and James Potter, and became Harry’s godfather. He was framed for murder and sent to Azkaban, though after 12 years he escaped by transforming into a black dog. Sirius died during a duel with Bellatrix, and helped comfort Harry before his final battle with Voldemort.

 

7. Severus Snape

severus snape

As Hogwarts‚Äô Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, Death Eater and head of Slytherin House, Snape seemed like the ultimate villain ‚ÄĒ¬† until it was revealed that he had been working with Dumbledore and protecting Harry right up until his death at the hands of Voldemort. Harry even named his son Albus Severus Potter, after Dumbledore and Snape.

 

8. Quirinus Quirrell

professor quirrell

Professor Quirrell went in search for Voldemort, to gain recognition and learn from him. When he did, Voldemort took over his body, appearing as a face on the back of his head which Quirrell covered with a turban.

9. Moaning Myrtle

12. Neville Longbottom

When he first arrived at Hogwarts, Neville was picked on for his timid personality and clumsy nature. However, he eventually proved himself to be a fighter and even destroyed the final horcrux by killing Nagini, the snake.

 

13. Bellatrix LeStrange

bellatrix lestrange

Bellatrix was one of Voldemort’s most loyal followers, killing many of his enemies and those who threatened him. She was extremely powerful, but used her intelligence to fight for the dark side.

 

14. Draco Malfoy

draco malfoy

After he arrived at Hogwarts, Draco quickly became Harry’s rival, often banding together with his fellow Slytherins to oppose him. His family were supporters of Voldemort and joined the Death Eaters, but Draco was never fully committed to the cause and couldn’t go through with his assignment to kill Dumbledore. He was constantly stuck between the pressure to fight alongside his family, and his desire to live a normal life.

 

15. Harry Potter

Harry became an orphan as a baby after Voldemort killed his parents, and always stood up to Voldemort and fought to destroy him. The adults in his life and his fellow classmates didn’t always believe in him, and he struggled with feeling alone and missing his family. He was often conflicted by a desire to do the right thing, and his own self-doubt and evil forces working against him. However, he never gave up and triumphed over Voldemort.

Chloe finally becomes aware of her true feelings for Lucifer as she became jealous seeing him work together with¬†Ella Lopez¬†and Lucifer finally acknowledges that he truly has real feelings for Chloe as Linda helped him realize during a therapy session. “Once Upon a Time” shows an¬†alternate universe
Chloe and Lucifer never met due to¬†John Decker¬†not being murdered and Chloe remaining an actress, becoming famous because of it. This postponed their original meeting by approximately two years. In the alternate universe, they meet while both were investigating the death of Chloe’s friend, who was killed in Lux which caused some problems for Lucifer when trying to expand the business. Lucifer instantly recognizes her from her films, and after some antagonistic interactions, the two agree to work together. This allows them to find the killer. Later, privately celebrating their victory, Chloe reveals she has an interest to be a police officer in real life as opposed to playing one in films, and Lucifer suggests he could tag along with her. This shows that regardless of what is changed, the two would inevitably end up working together to solve crimes.

Throughout the Series

Chloe was born,¬†God¬†sent¬†Amenadiel¬†to Earth to bless a couple that had trouble conceiving a child. Amenadiel later realized that the couple he had blessed were¬†Penelope¬†and¬†John Decker¬†and that Chloe had been the outcome. Chloe was later born during the early 1980’s

  • The First Love

Chloe regains consciousness and finds Lucifer standing over Pierce’s dead body with the other men dead. She calls out to Lucifer and he turns to see her, Chloe then sees his Devil face for the first time and is shocked to discover that all of his claims of being the Devil were really true. She is left in a stunned state, stepping back as she repeats the disturbing sight twice.

Though Chloe didn’t initially affect¬†Lucifer, as shown in the “Pilot”,¬†but¬†later, whenever he is in her vicinity, his immortality is suppressed and he becomes physically vulnerable.¬†Marcus Pierce¬†speculated in “Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better”, that Chloe’s love makes immortal beings vulnerable, which would explain why Lucifer was able to take six bullets in the pilot, but bled when he was shot by Chloe.

Chloe is immune to¬†Lucifer’s powers of persuasion when they are used towards her. However, she is still affected by other powers, such as¬†Amenadiel’s chronokinesis, as was shown when she became frozen when time was stopped.

Chloe meets Lucifer while investigating¬†Delilah’s murder. Lucifer wants to punish whoever is responsible for¬†Delilah’s death and keeps interfering with Chloe’s investigation.

Chloe kisses Lucifer at the end of the episode on the beach after he gives a long speech about how he isn’t worthy of her and will stop pursuing her.

Chloe has an explicit dream about returning to Lux with Lucifer and making out with him, only to discover that he has long devil horns and wake up. Towards the end, after risking his live to save two young men, Chloe embraces Lucifer, happy to know he is unharmed.

Chloe and Lucifer kiss after he admits his feelings for her.

Chloe recovers and finds Lucifer standing over Pierce’s body, she calls out to him and finally discovers that Lucifer’s truly the Devil after seeing his Devil face. Chloe was left shaken to learn that all his claims were true.

Chloe became consumed by fear and doubt whether or not the sauve, yet compassionate man she had come to love was an act. As a result, she was manipulated by Father Kinly into believing Lucifer was evil incarnate. However, she had a changed her mind after Lucifer reveals he is vulnerable around her. Because of Eve wedging her way into their lives, Chloe became increasingly worried Eve was encouraging Lucifer’s worse behavior.

Chloe confesses her love to Lucifer and admits she mishandled seeing his true face.

Originally, Lucifer was known as Samael, the Lightbringer, though he eventually became better known as Lucifer. He was the brightest of all of¬†God’s angels. He was thought to be God’s favorite. When Lucifer rebelled, God cast him out of Heaven, tasking him to be the ruler of¬†Hell¬†and to punish the souls of deceased sinners for eternity. Lucifer reluctantly ruled Hell for many eons, gaining a fearsome reputation. He became known by many names, including the Devil, Satan, Abaddon, and Belial.

Possibly due to Chloe’s parents being blessed by Amenadiel on God’s orders, Chloe is insensitive to Lucifer’s preternatural charm. She is also able to render Lucifer powerless and defenseless against all means of harming, as seen when he bled after cutting himself in her vicinity. Initially, she was only immune to Lucifer’s charm and had no effect on Lucifer’s invulnerability as seen in “Pilot” when Lucifer was shot multiple times in her presence. In an alternate universe shown in “Once Upon a Time”, Lucifer was shot multiple times while Chloe was nearby and was uninjured (his physical vulnerability when in proximity to Chloe may likely be a psychosomatic manifestation of his growing emotional vulnerability towards her, starting from “Manly Whatnots”-onwards).

After coming to the realization he hated himself, Lucifer slowly started to take on his Devil self permanently. Eventually his wings sprang out and wouldn’t go back in. This “King of Hell” form is how he appears in hell. Much like his face, his entire body looks like charred flesh on bone. The very sight of this form scared a group of demons into bowing to Lucifer’s commands and returning to Hell

Lucifer decided to return to Hell to protect those he loved and admitted his love for Chloe and vice versa, his wings regained their angelic look as seen when Lucifer departed for Hell. This likely happened because of Chloe’s total acceptance of who and what he was, even after seeing his full demonic form and Lucifer’s self-sacrificing and selfless choice to return to Hell.

Lucifer returns to Hell for good, to keep the demons contained after he and Chloe admit their love for each other.
