#487: Goodbye to Superman and Lois…For Now!

The Superhero Show Show #487

Goodbye to Superman and Lois…For Now!

The Taste Buds say goodbye to Superman and Lois for the year, and Gotham Knights forever!

On this week’s episode of the all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are discussing the Superman and Lois season 3 finale. Katelynn is going to have a lot to answer for if Cassie and Ryan are disappointed by the show that she has been propping up for years. Is she nervous? She better be!

Lex Luthor is on his typical, vengeance-fueled rampage, and Lois and Clark are in his sights (shocker). He has demanded Lois retire, and Lois Lane doesn’t normally respond to demands like that. So he has figured out a way to make some sort of Bizarro-Superman to kill Superman, and Lois, and Smallville. REAL NICE, LEX.

Will this episode feel different now that we know it’s just the season finale, and not the series finale? Will this Lex Luthor measure up to the legacy of Luthor performances on the small and large screen? And will Bizarro feel like an actual threat to Superman, a character that has been so hard to threaten in the past. Tune in and find out!

Plus, the Taste Buds are discussing all of the other comic book television from this week, including the series finale of Gotham Knights! They also discuss Archie’s performance of John Proctor on the newest Riverdale, and talk about why the “Dead City” in The Walking Dead: Dead City is New York. And, of course, the biggest question of the week: did the second episode of Secret Invasion elevate the show above a high-budget Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D? And will they wonder – even for a second – how long it’s been since I had to put all of the little periods in between the letters in the word “shield.” All of this, and so much more, on an all-new episode of The Superhero Show Show!

Also, don’t forget to:

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit donations4abortion.com.

If you or someone you know needs help, or if you want to get more involved, here are 5 resources:

1. Shout Your Abortion is a campaign to normalize abortion.

2. Don’t Ban Equality is a campaign for companies to take a stand against abortion restrictions.

3. Abortion.cafe has information about where to find clinics.

4. PlanCPills.org provides early at-home abortion pills that you can keep in your medicine cabinet. And five.

5. Choice.crd.co has a collection of these resources and more.
