Superman & Lois season 1 included plenty of action and twists. And, along with a focus on Morgan Edge (Adam Raynor) as the main antagonist, the Arrowverse series also brought in other baddies and baddies-turned-reluctant allies. It’s an approach that will continue into the show’s second installment. But, in a significant way, as revealed by showrunner Todd Helbing, the upcoming episodes will see a shift.
Speaking with SFX Magazine to promote Superman & Lois season 2, which will kick off January 11 on The CW, Helbing teased that the trend of multiple villains will continue. He noted that though the baddies won’t be working together, they do hand off to one another. He added that one of the antagonists will be focused on Superman, while the other will be a “Lois villain.” Helbing concluded by saying that these villains, unlike those of the first season, will require even more strength to get rid of. You can read Helbing’s quote, via GamesRadar, below.
“There are multiple villains, really. Both villains affect Clark and Lois personally. We start out with one villain that is really more Superman, while setting up the Lois villain. They are not working together, but they hand off in a cool way this season. One of them comes to the forefront and, in a lot of ways, is more powerful than the other one. It will take the whole team, in a different way than last year, to stop this person.”–screenrant.com
