| I Feel Sorry for the One Star Reviewers
First I'd like to burst a few bubbles here. I've noticed that some one star reviews have an issue with how some of the characters on 'Krypton' are portrayed. Screaming political correctness like every other urchin that looses his/her mind whenever they see a character that doesn't look the way they want that character to look.

Now I will reach across the aisle for a moment and say here that I dislike shows that make PC the center theme of the plot. 'DC: Legends of tomorrow' are notorious for this. I don't need to be reminded every episode that that one character is gay every time she/he hits the screen. I get it, move the plot forward. But when I see viewers beginning to complaining over what a character looks like, especially a character we've never seen or heard of before, then you just need to stfu.

I stumbled upon one such reviewer who claimed to have used "logic" in his/her analysis of 'Krypton.' This user had an issue with the Zod characters being black. "How was Zod in 'Man of Steel' Caucasian but the Zods here are black? Seems very PC to me Lolz."

Apparently this person's "logic" failed them. First off there is no such thing as a "Caucasian Kryptonian" there is no such thing as a "Black Kryptonian." Taking a step back, obvious the characters are portrayed by black and white actors and actress... but haven't you heard of suspended belief in sci-fi? Non of these characters are human. They are ALIENS from an alien society! Secondly, the Zod and El names are house names not family names. Lastly, Kryptonians are born Gatica style. There are no natural births (that we're aware of) until Superman comes around. Kryptonains are adopted into these houses so they can look like whatever they like.

"But... But you don't see no one trying to make Black Panther white though." Well Black Panther is a human being from Africa, not an alien born in a test tube from another planet.

Anyway with that aside. I'd like to say that this show is great for the DC Universe. For one, I like the fact that the same writers who were behind many of DC's animated series are also behind this show. DC animations are excellent in my books, far better than Marvel animations due to the fact that DC animations focus more so on the everyday side of superheroes and their reception to the broader public that they have sworn themselves to protect. I also like how DC villains come off more sinister and darker than Marvel villains.
