So as always I’m a big comic fan, and I’ve said before I’m a fan of the CW Arrowverse. For as much as DC movies are terrible, their TV shows are quite excellent. And the standout last year was Supergirl, it really tapped into what makes for the best Superman / Supergirl stories. The best stories are all based around problems that they can’t “super power their way out of”. Last season tackled real topics like trust of the media, xenophobia, racism, and others. This season is already moving towards tackling technology and its ability to change the way that we view reality and connect with each other.
