My Adventures with Superman Season 2 Promises More Anime Action and Fun for the DC Universe

The first two episodes of My Adventures with Superman Season 2 promise a season full of more action and fun!

My Adventures with Superman is back for Season 2, and the first two episodes of this new season pick up right where things left off as Clark, Lois, and Jimmy have to navigate around even more issues stemming from everything that happened in the first season! My Adventures with Superman introduced a brand new take on Clark Kent as he was not only getting started with his career at the Daily Planet, but he was also starting out his life as the superhero icon from the classic DC Comics lore. This first season challenged Clark in many ways, and left him with an intriguing future at its end. 

The end of the first season left Clark at a very intriguing place for the future. Clark not only discovered that there was a potential for him to become the monster he'd always feared, and his connections with his alien heritage were thrown more into question as he thwarted a full invasion. My Adventures with Superman Season 2 continues to pull these threads with a new status quo as Clark and Lois are in a full relationship, Jimmy is now a millionaire, and Amanda Waller is making some big moves. With the first two episodes, it's clear we're going to be in for a wild ride.

My Adventures with Superman Season 2 Goes Full Anime

My Adventures with Superman Season 2 immediately raises the stakes as Clark is fearful of everything he's found out about the Kryptonians in the first season, and Lois' father has gone missing. While the two of them have become an official couple, their respective worries mean that there are aspects of their burgeoning relationship that they really can't focus on in the moment like dating. Making matters worse is the fact that Clark's starting to get visions of Kryptonian ships, and thus wants to find out more about his father. 

As Clark learns more about his Kryptonian origins, Amanda Waller has taken on the Task Force duties with the intention of grabbing Kryptonian technology and adapting it into weapons. All of these stories coalesce into the same kinds of fun action sequences seen in the first season. For fans wanting more of the same solid foundation, thankfully Season 2 is not skimping out on any of this. But the real draw is the further expanding of this new take on Superman's world. There are more characters introduced, new takes on foes, and some fun character dynamics already in place

The first two episodes also most intriguingly explore more of Clark and Lois. As the two of them start a full romance, it's a much different dynamic than the two of them had in the first season. Their respective issues are different this time around, and there's a tease that Lois' father will be playing more into this dynamic while also not being aware of Clark's role as Superman. 

It might seem reductive to once again emphasize that My Adventures with Superman Season 2's first two episodes are more of what we got in the first season, but that's the appeal. It's what fans have enjoyed in that first season, but there are additional layers of complexity that will change the characters moving forward. These first two episodes are a fun reintroduction to Clark, Lois, and Jimmy that balance the low stakes of their relationship with some potentially world ending ramifications for the season as a whole. 

There are ominous teases for Clark's journey as Superman, more characters who will play a huge role in later episodes, great looking action, and added wrinkles to Clark, Lois, and Jimmy's dynamic. If you loved the first season, you'll love this. But if that first season didn't reel you in, this would be an odd place to start.
