It fuels fear, animates political movements and forges a powerful new enemy in National City. This week, Supergirl shows us how fear, frustration and despair can turn a smart, kind-hearted optimist into a powerful voice of hatred.
And "Man of Steel" lists the outstanding TV episodes: Buffy the Vampire Hunter "The Zeppo", Doctor Who "Turn Left", CSI & # 39; s "Lab Rats", Supernatural's "Weekend at Bobby's", File X "Three of a Kind". All these television sessions interrupt the main characters in favor of presenting the experiences of someone who is usually on the periphery.
Two years ago, Ben Lockwood was an NCU professor watching the world slowly change. There's Supergirl on TV telling her "Hope Hope" talk about Season 1
Ben remains optimistic about Lockwood Steel's prospects and even positions himself between insurgent Lockwood workers and the alien Nth factory workers who threaten them. But then the Bravik he protects is hurt and accidentally shoots one of his spikes in Ben's chest.
"I did not mean to!" The alien screams as Supergirl and Alex run in to end the fight. Alex grabs Ben and says his workers were lucky that Supergirl made them easy. But Alex's buzzwords stay with him and Ben wonders why Supergirl and the FBI work together against people, regardless of their citizenship status.
Next we see Ben, his arm in a noose, pleading with Lena Rethink the termination of the contract with Lockwood Steel. But Lena says the newly renamed L-Corp will now use the steel of the future and suggests that Lockwood also take modernization measures.
Jump to 14 months when Ben gives a lecture in a hall with human and alien students – Ooooh, buddy I'll bet half of this class is in love with pretty Professor Lockwood – he notices that the whiteboard is made of N-metal consists. This causes him to quote Ben Franklin and encourage students to ask themselves who pays the price for progress when they look at something like Marssin's alien amnesty law.
Jack Spheer is on television and presumably talks about nanotechnology when Ben finds out Peter was unable to secure bank credit and shut down Lockwood Steel. Ben's son rings to call aliens "cockroaches" but is interrupted when Queen Rhea appears on the screen. Soon Daxamite ships are shouting over him and Ben and his wife are counting their food and water rations and planning to flee the city.
Peter urges his son to be a man and fight, but in the end they seize Just a few moments before Jnon crashed through the ceiling in the middle of the battle, they wanted to leave their house. The Lockwoods watch in horror as Jnon subjects his prey, assuring them, "You are safe now," and flies away as flames devour their house, complete with an American flag and a burning bicycle in the foreground.
Ben next turns to James Olsen, who is currently following a Cat Grant White House instruction to ask CatCo to report on the battles citizens face during alien attacks. For example, homeowner insurance does not cover alien invasion damage. If I think about it, this clause is probably contained in the fine print of the house rules of our homeowners.
James says the insurance story was in the business realm but before Ben delves into the finer points of the agenda- James gets a call from CatCo's new owner, Lena Luthor. Ben does not like that. (Next Page: The Birth of a Venomous Movement)
