Ed’s Winner for the Week: The Man We Thought Was Captain Luthor (Wolé Parks) - What a Holy Shit Moment! The writers at Superman and Lois pulled off an amazing character reveal that added another dimension to a show that already become hands down the best DC show of the season. It is so nice to see one of the favorite characters of my childhood finally debut in the Arrowverse. Here is hoping he can finally get out of Shaquille O'Neal's shadow.
