CM Podcast 80 – CW’s Invasion! Week

This week was really big for the CW DC shows: Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.  They had their 1st crossover event – Invasion!

The crossover was pretty good and most of the shows (I am looking at you, Supergirl) did a good job of keeping the story together and also introducing all the characters to new viewers.

What many people might not know is that the Invasion! storyline was based on an actual DC Comics Event that happened across all the comics in 1988.

The DC Comics Invasion! Event had more than just the Dominators to fight.  Earth was invaded by 9 alien races!

Most of the Axis of Evil Aliens (from left to right): Dominators, Khunds, Gil’Dishpan, Thanagarians and Daxamites.

The DC comics Invasion! introduced the concept of The Meta Gene and also impacted many of the comic books and characters for years to come.

Listen to the CM Podcast and I will go over both the TV show and Comic versions of Invasion!

Your Comics Pal,

Jim
