‘Superman and Lois’: The best reactions to last night’s premiere
Yesterday, The CW’s long-awaited Superman and Lois debuted on the network. This take on one of the most well-known love stories in comics sees Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois (Bitsie Tulloch) as parents to twin teenage boys (Alexander Garfin, Jordan Elsass) with very different personalities. A more grounded take on life in the Arrowverse (there’s a plot about shady reverse mortgages), largely won over audiences & critics.
While we’re still wondering if the pilot alone can sustain the series, Superman and Lois has Twitter abuzz with memes, favorite moments, Superman arguments, and reactions to the series premiere. Let’s head up, up, and away with some of our favorite Superman and Lois moments to welcome the series to the Arrowverse.
Spoilers ahead, just so you know.

Lang and Kent: Next Generation
Looks like we’re seeing the next generation of Kent & Lang (Cushing but same difference) with Jordan (Garfin) & Sarah (Inde Navarrette). From the pining to angry boyfriend when you kiss his girlfriend at a party. Yikes.
I was pleasantly surprised! 👏👏That was 🔥 #SupermanAndLois pic.twitter.com/QZaZpWY8EZ

Relieved exhales, guys. It’s pretty good.
Proof that just because a trailer is less than great doesn’t mean a series will be bad!

Do you feel it in the air tonight?
Tulloch & Hoechlin = best chemistry! Without this duo, we wouldn’t have the series.
The episode was absolutely amazing. This Clark Kent and Lois Lane are exactly the Clark Kent and Lois Lane we need right now. Plus, their kids are amazing! Kent family we love you! ❤️💙💜#SupermanAndLois pic.twitter.com/RTczZLNyMF

Meet the Kents
The Kent family that we all deserve, okay?
Wow. I can’t lie — #SupermanAndLois is some of the best Superman content we’ve ever gotten, and I don’t say that lightly. I went in with low expectations, and I was absolutely blown away. 👏 pic.twitter.com/u6dMrHyE7d

By Krypton that Post-Crisis proposal has us tearing up.
Oh wow. That’s quite the twist. Jordan is the one with the heat vision AND the strength to save his brother. #SupermanAndLois pic.twitter.com/Iu0OlvqAd9

And boom, there it is!
Boom! The big twist of the episode. Jordan is the one who has the Kryptonian powers.
Wait, am I tripping or did that voice say “Captain Luthor?”

And the other huge twist of the episode was that The Stranger (Wolé Parks) is actually a Luthor?! What?! Luthor what?! (Also is it just us or does he look like Master Chief from Halo?)

Stop the Superman fights!
Also stop fighting about who is the best Superman, okay? They’re all good in their own ways.
