Re: Smallville: 10x08 "Abandoned" - Discussion and Spoilers

Damn straight.

So, in a weird retcon, the possessing spirit that looked like Darkseid is actually Godfrey?

I'm liking the approach of subtly introducing a team of villains that will be semi-recurring characters. Having one big bad as part of the cast for a season was too much, considering how many convoluted ways they had to come up with to involve them in B stories. That's my gripe mainly with the last season, not the 8th as much. Even the main arc episodes seemed like weird made up shit just to reach that 21 episode order. I mean, the huge buildup around the RAO tower that gets torched in like 3 seconds, and red sun powered Kryptonians? What, how, why? None of these things ended up making any sense or mattering by the end of the season.

The Unholy Trinity aren't a team of villains though. They're minions of a dark god who are preparing the Earth for his inevitable arrival. As for Godfrey's appointment...well Smallvlile loves using human vassals for hosts.

OK, Godfrey must be the human's actual name.. It's also the name of an Apokolips character in the comics, so they must be referencing that. I wondered because Desaad made it sound like the guy is not inhabited by Darkseid, but is yet another pawn.

Yeah. I'm saying the thing that possessed Godfrey looked like Darkseid, not a different Apokolips entity called...Godfrey. Possibly, in this version, all three of them are humans possessed by Darseid.

It is typical of this show...sloppy writing, retcons & just over all BS with them making things harder than it has to be to fit into the context of the series.

As I've stated from the start of the season "Smallville" version of Final Crisis.

Can you picture (actually he's tiny) a super pissed Grant Morrison trashing the Smallville sets in a huge rage for them raping his so called "masterpiece" until security wrestles him to the ground?

Re: Smallville: 10x08 "Abandoned" - Discussion and Spoilers

Actually I'm thinking this scenario...

Geoff Johns: Hey ya Grant what's up?

Grant Morrison: Just putting up some finishing touches on Batman, Inc#1 right now Geoff what's up?

Geoff Johns: Nothing much, just got off a conference call the other day with Brian Peterson and Kelly Sounders. They're the showrunners on Smallville. They want to use Darkseid as the main villain for the final season. They're pretty excited. Kelly described the season as being dark and epic. They wanted me to check with you if it would be okay do adapt Final Crisis?

Grant Morrison: Is Clark becoming Superman finally this season? Is the lad gonna finally fucking fly?

Geoff: Yes.

Grant: Sure, I don't mind them adapting Final Crisis if helps the bloke become Superman. Should be interesting to see how they depict Darkseid. Let me know if they need any notes or anything like that.

Geoff: No problem. Thanks Grant!


Few months later Grant Morrison is watching "Lazarus" and sees the smoke monster version of Darkseid!.

Grant: WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHITE???
