    Wow, season opener and it's a low action episode?...Is this going to be the tone for season 2?...I haven't watched it yet, was going to do so tonight but if it's a sleeper I'd rather watch something else...

    Sorry, but IMDB reviewers are sometimes misleading. Still haven't watched it, but, from Den of Geek:

    Well I watched it, it was mostly mundane and uneventful...The only interesting part was the final 30 seconds...

    I'm at the 32 minute mark right now. (Had to watch before the next episode drops.) I'd say there is a fair amount of "action" though not villain related.
    Is the
    team of superman
    something from the comics or original for TV?

    I didn't read many DC comics, however there is a

    Team Superman comic from 1999 and before that there were Superman Team-up comics...

    The covers you posted point more to superheroes working with Superman. But there was another
    Supermen of America formed by Lex Luthor as rivals to Superman, like on the show. On the show, of course, Luthor is not involved.

    Oh yeah

    It was this team in the comics starting around 1999 but I never read these before, I'm not sure if Luthor is involved or not in these comics...

    So who is

    the creature coming up from the depths of the earth and how did it get there?...The woman mentioned about something coming through, but coming through what?...Is this Doomsday or something else?...

    The Den of Geek writer inferred that that is who that is. He didn't say he had inside sources, though.

    I was making a judgment based upon seeing the armored hand punching through rock at the end of the last episode and by the appearance of the creature in the shadows when it was briefly shown in this 2nd episode...

    At first I thought it could have been Brainiac in a protective suit coming from another universe until the woman said that its stronger than they could imagine or something to that effect...I was wondering if they opened a portal to another universe and brought something through...

    Yeah it's
    Doomsday
    without a doubt now, so this could be a very interesting story arc because it's likely to lead on to some bigger event, depending on how his backstory unfolds...

    It wouldn't be a comic book (live-action) without this:
    "Brilliant" humans scheming to control an ultra-powerful, ultra-dangerous entity they know nothing about. :emoji_cartwheel:
