I just saw Justice League. It was amazing! Everything I want from a superhero flick and more.

Oh, and there are two after-credits scenes, so watch out for that.

I haven't yet seen it but I cannot wait!

I guess they're taking a cue from Marvel with two post credits scenes? Haha.

The CW television series of "The Flash" irritates me. Barry Allen can't seem to get together with _anybody!_ Note that I've only seen the first season. Iris is theoretically Barry's true love, but he let her get away to become involved with Eddie. Felicity from the "Arrow" series would have been a _perfect_ love interest for Barry, but the writers would not permit it to happen. Caitlin would _also_ work very well as a sweetheart for Barry, but they won't let _that_ happen either. Grrrr!

Man, are you in for a long ride. A certain wedding is being advertised for season 4, though.

It is, quite unfortunately, a trope that the CW feels compelled to use in every single one of their DC shows. 'Arrow' is even worse about this, honestly.

Actually, it's a common theme in superhero shows and films that the heroes are just terrible at relationships. Not sure why.

On the other hand, some network (not sure which one) is going to do a Black Lightning show. The title character will be forty years, old, married, and a father of two, and also a superhero. Sounds like a breath of fresh air to me.

Fresh air indeed!

Meanwhile, in Season Two, The Useless Flash and his friends have had to deal with "Zoom," a monstrous villain SO cruel and wicked and merciless that he makes Reverse Flash appear benevolent. So what happens? NOT ONCE BUT TWICE (once by the aid of Killer Frost, and once by a clever trap), the good guys get the upper hand over Zoom, having a clear chance to kill him and END his reign of terror and murder over TWO Earths. But each time, though knowing that Zoom already is a mass murderer, AND that he is too powerful to keep imprisoned easily, AND that he will keep right on murdering without remorse if he gets away, the astonishingly brain-dead morons LET HIM LIVE.

An old saying applies here: "Who spares the wicked, injures the good."

And my often-repeated (because necessary) Scriptural exposition is also applicable: when Jesus said to love our enemies, He did NOT say or mean that we must positively PREFER the worst of evildoers OVER their innocent victims.

I simply cannot stomach any more viewing of "The Flash," when the good guys make it THEIR ENTIRE AND INVARIABLE BUSINESS to defeat themselves.

This is kind of a superhero thing outside of movies, where the villains always die.

Most superheros have a "no-kill" rule, which they follow to the point of lunacy. It's why Arkham Asylum has a reputation as having no standards, and why the Reavers (X-Men villains) even exist.

I guess it's a side effect of trying to make them vigilantes without letting them become criminals?

That and it's kind of a necessary weasel when working with comic books, when you don't want to have to keep coming up with new villains forever, especially when response to a villain is positive. The Joker was implied to have died in his first appearance, but quickly came back.
