… seeing Iron Man was a surprise! Um, Reactron.
I’m already beginning to wonder what people expect from this series and if the ratings will improve.
As for me, just watching Melissa Benoist go through all her expressions is lots of fun and worth the time.
The reality for the actress is that she’s probably ending her day at 11PM and waking up at 3AM to do it all over again. When you consider that, it’s amazing her face is that lively.
Oh look …
… it’s Elon Musk! Um, Maxwell Lord. Wink wink.
The Super Watch:
Hmph. I wonder if they’ll put out a Summon Superman app for the Apple Watch?

In the 1970s, there was a brief fling with what was called “relevancy” —

And then there are the slave-driving factory owners who don’t pay overtime. And the rapists, and the child molesters, and the embezzlers, and the CEOs, and the bankers, and the crooked traders, and …
… The Incredibles had it right:
