Are there too many superhero films and TV shows at the moment?
Peter Facinelli: In the comics, he's kind of this Trump-esque businessman and very stern. For the TV series, we wanted to make him a different type of businessman. He's more like Steve Jobs, someone who is more sophisticated and smart. He's a Green Tech billionaire, so he's trying to save the planet in a way that's not related to superheroes. He feels humanity should save themselves. There are little differences, but he's less "Forbes" and more "GQ."
What does Max make of Supergirl's heroics and all the Phantom Zone escapees?
He looks down on all superheroes or any sort or aliens that are interfering with the human race. He believes humanity needs to save themselves. That's one of his messages, that we shouldn't have any outside interferences. When you rely on a superhero too much, what happens when they are not there one day? For him, he admires the power that they have. He wishes he could harness that power in some way - not for evil, but to save the human race.
At the end of the day, do you view Maxwell Lord as good or evil?
There's a fine line between good and evil. He doesn't purposely do evil acts. In his mind, he does things for good. Sometimes you have to do bad things to get there. Even when you are at war, sometimes you have to sacrifice one for the greater good of many. That's where his mindset is. He's not a Lex Luthor, selfishly trying to take over the world. In his righteous mind, he's doing good.
With that said, Supergirl's meteoric rise will be a departure from what fans of the Berlanti-verse have seen with Arrow and The Flash. "It's interesting for us because it's the first time we've really had such a real public superhero right from the get-go, and dealing with that instant fame and the impact on the city is part of the series," Kreisberg says.
The fact is, according to an article published by USA Today, "Supergirl" is indeed winning over audiences... and it's an even split between males and females.
Supergirl herself may be 24, but Supergirl also attracts the oldest audience among costumed crime-fighters, with a median age of 56, compared with 41.9 for The Flash and about 47 for Gotham and ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. That's likely a function of the show's home on senior-friendly CBS, where it's the youngest-skewing and most evenly gender-split drama. (About 54% of prime-time TV watchers are women.)

13thDimension.com caught up with Neal Adams to get a little bit of a further insight into "The Coming of the Supermen". Here's an excerpt from the interview...
Well, if I were Superman, and I had New Krypton and I wanted to settle it somewhere, I would settle it there. 'Cause I don't want those guys to come here necessarily because they're super creatures, but on the other hand I want 'em close enough that I can know what's going on. Darkseid might think the same thing. Because we don't really know where Apokolips is or where New Genesis is. It's kind of this nebulous place. But if it's on the other side of the sun, that would be close enough and still far away enough for that to be an interesting place. What if Superman settles New Krypton on the other side of the sun and then Darkseid comes and decides to settle there, too.
