Supergirl starts featuring two Superboys. The first being Kon-El/Conner, James Olsen’s missing kid brother. The second being Jon Lane Kent, Superboy Prime. These episodes generate so much controversy that they invite death threats on set.
These get carried over to the Flash and Arrow, especially if they have a punk detective Barry Allen and masturbating Felicity Smoak. They all get moved to midnight timeslots, which becomes the norm for superhero television.
They also get repurposed into infomercials for upcoming webcomics and novels. This causes DC to do a Star Wars onto its comics continuity. The webcomics become the official versions from now on with the TV programmes being the adverts.
The print comics are now considered both drafts and apocryphal. Some readers wouldn’t like this but it’s going to be the case from now on.
