/I want this episode soooo bad. Plus the 4th-wall-breaking reveal that Stargirl is grown-up Melissa, and Brandon's been behind the camera for the whole series.

They're really portraying Icicle as someone who at least thinks his goals are good ones, a worthy end for evil means. "A better America." So why did he name his organization "The Injustice Society"?

After Arrow you really think they are worried about violence?  Oliver must have killed a couple hundred people the first season alone.  Oh, and of course Moira's death was so peaceful and non violent.  Didn't she die in her sleep or something like that?

Snark aside, the shows are all watered down.
Certainly not THIS dark.

You can't honestly argue that this DC Universe show isn't  darker and more violent than any CW show.

I most definitely will argue that. I think you are probably just seeing it as darker  because the main protagonist is some sweet innocent teen girl rather than a trained assassin or dark vigilante so there is a huge contrast.

Uh...its moving to DC Universe next season.

So you might be right about the budget.

Okay, that makes sense. The Against Injustice Society of America?

Huh. Way back before there was any such thing as TVtropes (or indeed most of the WWW) back in the early 1990s in the days of dial-up online services, the villains in my few fanfics that I posted on GEnie's Comics and Animation RoundTable tended to be of that type. Good to have a name for it.

One thing that disturbed me about this episode: all of the goals of the "Injustice" Society (or at least of Icicle) are liberal / progressive goals. Could it be that the showrunners are conservatives and using this as anti-progressive propaganda? "Global warming? LBGTQ rights? Yeah, you'd have to either be a supervillain, or be forcibly brainwashed by an evil telepath boosted by an evil foreign scientist, to believe this stuff!"

I hope not.  I'm thinking it's a less drastic Thanos plan, or that Jasmine storyline on Angel that everyone seemed to hate except me.

I don't think so, especially when the protagonists say "aren't these good things?"

It is in line with a suggestion throughout the series that they have goals to improve society, they just want to use awful means to achieve them.

I never watched Angel so I have no idea what "the Jasmine storyline" is. Feel free to spoil it for me as I don't think I'll be binging it any time soon.

We'll see next Tuesday. It's just that right now it does appear that way. That seems to be the subtext at this time: "these goals that our Idealistic yet Foolish Young 'Heroes' like so much are ones that Older and Wiser People would need to be brainwashed by an evil telepath boosted by a thinly disguised Yellow Peril scientist to believe!"

It's very similar.  Basically taking away people's free will in order to give them bliss.  With a side of eating a bunch of them.

I didn't hate it, either. I mean, it did have Gina Torres, who's always awesome.  What I did hate was what had to happen to get there.  The evil pregnant Cordy storyline suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked.
