I remember Lockheed was an alien but for some reason I don't remember Fing Fang Foom being an alien. But after looking around I stand corrected. Though considering how powerful he is I wouldn't mind making him a supernatural creature.
Yeah, not that it really is important. Might fit better in MCU, unless Doctor Strange reveals mythical elements more than I expect.

I can only agree. I can't really imagine X-Men in MCU. Spider-man, sure . But at this point, I think it's too late. Now I just hope that other not-so popular characters get introduced to MCU, like Moon Knight (rumor already), Black Knight and She-Hulk.
I would also really, REALLY want to see show or movie based on Captain Britain & MI13- comics.

Well, originally he fought against Werewolf by Night, but I think either Black Spectre or The Hood could work. Actually, they could introduce The Hood in Moon Knight series, and then bring him to Defenders series as the main villain with his supervillain gang.
That would be cool.
I can only concur with most of you.
TERRIFYING. I don't know if I hate any other fictional character this much. He's despicable.
Netflix tv-series proves again to be the format for Marvel. Daredevil as great, Jessica Jones now feels even better. I can only dream what they can do with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, possibly Moon Knight and then finally, Defenders.

Yeah, you have point there. I still think I'm gonna wait though, so we can go crazy over this together. So I think I just rewatch Daredevil before that!
People it's a freaking 13 year old? What the hell do you expect from an innocent kid for god's sake?
Seconded. These events change him in to the Batman. That does not mean that he has to be super smart and cunning. He has lost his parents, has been threatened multiple times and is still very young. And he lived very care-free life before all this. One does not simply become the Bat fast.
That thing aside- I really liked this episode. Riddler & Penguin parts were fun and again highlighted those actors skills. Cory Michael Smith can totally sing. And I'm expecting great things from these gentleman in the future!
And I actually really liked Flamingo. That actor played him so well, and was terrifying. Especially the last scenes of the episode. Hrrr. I want to see him again, because there is now a nice link between Gordon and Flamingo. It's like with Batman and Joker- Batman does not kill Joker and throws him behind bars, but Joker will continue killing people. I liked that comparison. Very similar comparison (although corrupted version) was with Riddler and Penguin. Riddler says the they cannot be bargained or blackmailed- much like Batman will be behind his mask.

Well, Doctors Strange movie will come before Iron Fist series, so that might be what they are doing.
Oh my god what I would pay to see Moon Knight in Netflix tv-series. That dude's AWESOME.
"Do you know what I miss from the old place? That trunk with russian vodka in it." *Oliver approves.*
That was some good scene.
I was thinking, are they gonna bring Ted Kord in to the series? I know that they wanted to use him a while ago, but they couldn't so they used Atom instead. But still, one wonders.
Maybe he has the same hidden motive as the Zoom from comics- this is his twisted version of trying to help the heroes, to get better at what they do. I always liked Zoom for that motive alone, and it might be a cool twist. This monster is the one I'm referring to. Unlikely, but cool.
He seems too murder-y for that though.
Oh man Zooms one creepy customer. I really like how terrifying they managed to make him. The way he boasted his victory and what he did reminds me of certain villain in Gotham city. Nice job, Zoom!
I was actually kinda hoping that Linda might take the mantle of Doctor Light and become the heroic version of her, redeeming the name. That would have been cool, and he could also face Arthur Light, as he was mentioned long ago and is technically a part of this universe. It could still happen, but I doubt it. One can dream, though.

I can only second this. My favorite part so far. Clark's message about Kara beating Reactron and how he never have done so was good. It clearly lifted her spirit. That's the Superman I know- he inspires people with deeds and words alike.
Also I think that Reactron was kinda cool villain.
Ha! I knew I recognized that guy from somewhere! That' awesome, I hope he really gambits and outmanouvers Ward, I like that actor so much and he really feels like a Hydra leader. I had this crazy idea that maybe, MAYBE he is MCU:s version of Alexander Lukin, as in
Red Skull is in his mind.
That would be so cool.
I really liked this episode, I in general enjoy everything with Captain Cold in it. That guy is great.
But I also want again point out how great actor Jesse L. Martin is. That man can act.This episode showed it again. And that scene was handled well, with Iris taking it well instead of cliched angry pouting. Kudos.
The backstory stuff was ok to me, bit silly but I'm already expecting that from Gotham. I really liked Penguin scenes and the Firefly. I just hope that they do not kill her in the next episode. I like her.
One thing popped to my mind with scenes with Selena- what happened to Ivy? She kinda vanished, or does my memory fail me?
New Trailer! I do believe I'm sold on this one. IF this succeeds (meaning it's good and does not get cancelled) it could pave the way for other fantasy tv-series. I would love to see something like Elric of Melnibone or hell, even Varian Jeggare and Radovan as a tv-series.
I think it was good episode, but I'm sad to see Jerome go. He was a blast to watch, and I did not like how they handled his death. Maybe if he died via "Joker Death" so the body would not be found, that would have been great.
Theo's acting in the scene was so bad it was a miracle somebody bought it. Maybe Jerome distracted the audience out of it?
The Penguin and Bullock-part was actually my favorite part of the episode. Both actors are amazing and the tension of the scene was great.
The ending...I kinda liked it, but it was...hmm. I need to re-watch it and try to make my mind about it.
I actually think it makes sense. Fact that these villains exist because of Batman in comics is kind weird when you think about it. Doesn't it make more sense that there is Batman BECAUSE of villains?
"Gee, there's this guy who is dressed as bat-ninja and he is beating the crap out of criminals. I want to be a criminal!"
Now I know that of course it's not this simple. Most Batman villains are mad, mad people. And I have enjoyed these stories with this backstory for years. But I'm open to a new interpretation.
I actually really enjoyed both episodes. All actors did amazing job, especially Cameron Monaghan, Robert Lord Taylor and Cory Michael Smith. I really, really like Jerome. He is so much fun, and I can see him totally nailing as the Joker in the future. Little moments like "Anybody got a light?" and "My line" just echo the Clown Prince of Crime. I honestly think that Jared Leto is gonna have a hard time surpassing this kid.
I'm sad to see Essen go. She was good character, and I really did not like that part so much. Better way should have been to just hospitalize her or something. Killing seemed wasteful. And I think that this whole Maniax- bit is ending quite soon- I mean, they have Jerome, Barbara and Amygdala anymore. They keep killing of memebers bit too fast.
Part with Alfred and Lucius was awesome. I really like this Alfred the best.
I have high hopes for this series, as it seems upping the ante with each episode. I like Gotham because it has, in my opinion, nailed the atmosphere of the city just right. But like good Batman stories should, it has not lose it's..."quirky" nature. Like the Arkham Asylum bit, Joker's sense of humor, absurd things that make the world come alive.
Good theories all around. Really excited to see where all this goes. I really liked the idea of Titan being the place where she is.
Anyone else thought that the new inhuman-guy could be MCU:s heroic version of Melter? Because that was the first thing that came to my mind.
Mordren Jaharis, Tiefling Bloodrager (Arcane). She would be Lawful Neutral, and standing on the side of the oppressed tieflings. Before all that, she had a glittering future in the industry of tiefling thugs and bandits, but after getting life lessons from Strea Vestori, she decided to use her strength and charisma to bring something akin to order to Devil's Nursery and help tiefling's position in Kintargo. Not so hell-bent (heh) on rules and laws as much of common sense and personal code. She respects the law, but is not fanatical about not breaking it. Her father was a poor and failed magician named Valkar "the Magnificent", and some of his minor skills has seeped in Mordren's blood.
This is the one I have right now, and one I will most likely play.
