Arrowverse Season 4 Big Bads are not the best main antagonists.
In my opinion, yes, Neron is worse than Mallus but in all fairness I rank them both under the Legion of Doom. But if I had to pick one, I'd choose Mallus.
Not all season 4s were bad. Some like Supergirl season 4 (I personally don't) and that introduced Jon Cryer's Lex Luthor who is one of Arrowverse's best villains. Flash had a good/bad season 4 (I liked it) and while not as good as Thawne or Zoom, DeVoe/Thinker wasn't all bad, I thought. The season 4 finale was a bit muggy, but outside of that...not terrible.
Of course it all depends on one's opinions and tastes on what they want in a show.
I did not like Neron, Lex Luthor was great. The thinker was good it’s just the constant body swapping just got annoying. Damien Darhk just didn’t fit as a Arrow Villian, great character just so OVERPOWERED for Green Arrow, but I ultimately love Damien in Legends tho.
I also didn't like Neron.
He was annoying.
Neron wasn’t that bad, I didn’t mind him. If we’re talking about the other shows season 4’s villains, Damien Darhk was kind of bad in Arrow, but better in Legends, DeVoe would’ve been great if there was no body switching (that’s the one thing Barry can go back and correct), and Lex Luthor was amazing in season 4 of Supergirl, but I got tired of him in season 5.
@J Fan Neron was not that bad, the whole of Legends season 4 was. But why does everybody hate season 4 of the Flash? I really enioyed it! It had the trial of the flash, a great villan, and so many new metas for him to fight every episode! It was great! Thst season actually had me thinking about how Barry coypd defeat someone with infinite knowledge.
If people say season 4 was bad because of Iris, then just no. wo what she was annoying? Its not like she became the centre point of the show! Season 4 is not as legendary as the 3 predecessors, but I found great joy in that interesting Storyline.
And Supergirl Season 4 is her best season to date. Lex, Manchester black, ben lockwood, so many amazing plots, stories and villians too.
Does anyone agree?
@The Kodex I agree.
I also love season 4 of the flash. its my second favorite season, after season 3.
And season 4 of supergirl was also good.
I really liked Agent Liberty and Manchester Black. And the storyline was good.
@The Kodex, And it's ok to have the opinion that Neron wasn't that bad. However, I don't. He just didn't appeal to me as much as Mallus, probably because the casting was better. But neither are my favorite Legends villains: Legion of Doom!
I'm probably one of the few who rank Supergirl season 4 last, or as my least favorite season, if you will. I like Manchester, but for me, it only got better when Lex got in the picture. That said, I did like 4x03 "Man of Steel" which show Ben Lockwood's backstory and 4x16 "The House of L" which is probably my favorite Luthor episode. Probably because I'm a sucker for all the villain-centric episodes. I'm pretty sure some agree in saying Ben's character became less interesting once Lex came to mess things up.
I do agree about Flash season 4 though. While the body-swapping did become an issue, DeVoe was a breath of fresh air after 2+seasons of speedster big bads. Not as good as earlier seasons but still enjoyable in my book. I want to say it's ranked higher than 5 and 6...maybe 3? None of the Flash seasons beat 1 or 2, which may be the general consensus.
What do you think?
