    Wow, quite a twist in the story and what a cliffhanger to boot!...

    I wonder if we will see Martian Manhunter, he's helped Suoerman before...

    Also it does seem like he gave up too easily, I wonder if there's a setup in play from him...

    Thanks. I'm not very familiar with the other franchises, but he is right about Loki undermining Marvel history and the meaning of the characters.

    Maybe they can salvage it by pronouncing it to be a fantasy, or at least to declare it as not part of MCU canon. But that will only happen if someone sufficiently high up realizes the problem.

    Very good Loki episode this week. A lot of action, a lot of twists and turns. Also, for the first time there is a mid-credits scene.

    Superman & Lois - 8/10.

    Superman & Lois is far more entertaining than its fairly generic title might suggest. The series makes the most of Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch's chemistry, utilizing the two characters and their romance in a way Supergirl never could. Superman & Lois may feel utterly divorced from the rest of the Arrowverse, but that's just as likely to be a selling point for many viewers. The only thing to hope from this show that it remains a balanced blend of genres but not a soap opera like others on CW. This show is really likeable and that intense cinematography gives a touch of man of Steel mixed in Smallville. Really hope the writing and script remains creative and entertaining.

    Loki - 8/10.

    I think Loki is fascinating and fun and it keeps you on your toes. The one and only problem that it has and happens to be a critical problem, is the fact that it really is not about Loki. The show is really about the Time Variance Authority, and the main character against them happens to be Loki. Ludicrous situations created by time travel can only be acceptably performed with comedy situations - at their core and that's why the casting of Owen Wilson is spot on. Tom and Owen are a great pair with great chemistry. In my opinion, the series is much better than expected.

    Only saw the first 2 episodes of Loki....Tom Hiddleston is always fun to watch as is Wilson but the show is odd to say the least. The plot and writing is at odds with the Marvel theme imho. I don't have Disney + right now so .....
    I also watch Superman and Lois...it's ok...decent at times but maybe just a bit too family oriented for me...?
    'Bitsie' Tulloch was in Grimm...one of my all time favorite paranormal shows.

    Thats part of my issue with the show, it rubs against the theme Marvel has spent 10+ years building on the silver screen...

    The one thing that really kind of shut me off of Loki was all of the infinity stones laying around and some being used as paper weights...Seriously?...In the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie they were depicted as something so powerful that ordinary humans couldn't even handle them, and now they're just paper weights on a desk?...sigh

    @wwkirk

    Do you think Morgan Edge exploded some sort of microbes or virus or something that will come raining down in earth in the near future?...Morgan Edge did something judging by the very last scene and that smirk on his face, well that and the narrator repeating those words of completing the mission...

    I agree that he must have have done something, but I don't know about a virus. It would be illogical for them to depopulate the planet as they need hosts. I had hoped Edge had been interrupted, but you're right about the smirk.

    On another note, I hope Irons has turned the corner and will remain allied with Superman et. al. in the future.
