"I knew older people that really liked it, and I have a younger cousin who is very young, he's four, and he loves it."
Andrew Kreisberg (The Flash and Arrow), Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler are writers on the series. Glen Winter is directior of the pilot episode from a script penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow), both of whom are executive producers alongside Sarah Schechter and Andrew Kreisberg.
The Supergirl TV series is expected to debut on CBS this September.
Corson: Bizarro is an alien from a distant planet rocketed here. His rockets give out right above the Earth and he crashes into our planet, spotting Superman saving an airplane (that he destroyed on his fall, by the way).
Bizarro is inspired by Superman. He wants to be a hero like Superman. So he puts together his own cosplay Superman outfit and runs around Metropolis trying to do uphold "lies, injustice and the Bizarro American way."
Of course, Metropolis soon gets sick of him and wants him gone. Jimmy Olsen takes it on himself to rid Metropolis of Bizarro.
The character always fascinated me because he's this joyful, awkward, klutzy outcast that desperately wants to be loved but can't ever seem to make anything come out right. In other words, me in middle school. I kept saying that he's not this frustrated monster but more like this raw, exposed nerve, desperate for friends. See? Me am Bizarro.
Q: So Jimmy Olsen is an ongoing part of the comic?
Corson: Jimmy is the co-lead of the series. It's a buddy picture. Jimmy is our Steve Martin to Bizarro's John Candy. He thinks that in taking Bizarro on this road trip, he'll get fame, fortune and a coffee table book out of it. But, because he's doing it for the wrong reasons, it gives us the ability to knock him around a little. Make him pay for it.
There will be six in the September release, priced at $26.99 each. Additionally, DC Entertainment will release a slipcase edition which will include all six titles for $145.99.
The six titles include: BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE, THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN, BATMAN YEAR ONE, JUSTICE LEAGUE ORIGIN, JLA EARTH 2, and WONDER WOMAN: GODS AND MORTALS.

Here's an excerpt from his interview with ComicVine.com...
BRIAN BUCCELLATO: It's a few months. Things have settled down as Batman has gone underground and the Regime is in full effect. Superman sits on his metaphoric throne, as tyrant. He DOES still have that infernal Batman itch to scratch and won't rest until he KNOWS Batman is out of the picture.
CV: What's the status of the heroes and the world after all the magical business in Year Three?
BB: Batman is underground and hasn't been heard from. His resistance has dwindled to a pathetic few. Superman is on top and the status quo is getting closer to the video games. But like I said, Superman is NOT resting easy because he knows it's only a matter of time before Batman resurfaces with one of his damned crazy plans.
CV: What can we expect with this being the year of the Greek Gods?
BB: Expect to see Zeus, Hera, Hercules and a host of other characters. And punches will be thrown. Many of them at Superman's face.
Meanwhile, IGN.com also interviewed Brian Buccellato
Buccellato: If you go back to year three, the plan was seeded when Hippolyta asked Hera for help reviving Wonder Woman and Superman. I don't want to give away more than that. Sorry!
IGN: How are you choosing to portray the gods and their powers? How big a threat do they pose to Superman's army? Can they even be fought by conventional means?
Buccellato: Wonder Woman is Zeus' daughter in the Injustice World. Ares has already been in the game and book... so the Greek Gods are definitely able to interact on a corporeal level. If you think Ares is a handful... imagine the might of Hera, Zeus, and Hercules.

How long do you think the upcoming "Truth" arc in the comics will impact on continuity of Superman comic books?
A quarter of you think the "Truth" arc will only last a few months. I'm inclined to agree.
Sadly, there are almost a quarter who couldn't care less... and then there are those who are totally confused. I feel your pain.
