Supergirl Season 1 Episode 5: How Does She Do It?
Cat Grant wins the Siegel Prize, a journalism prize with the ceremony occurring in Metropolis. The prize is named after Jerry Siegel, one of Superman’s creators, the original writer. Joe Shuster was the other creator and original artist. Among Jerry Siegel other creations are Bouncing Boy, Slam Bradley, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Brainiac 5, Shrinking Violet (Salu Digby), Spectre, the first Star-Spangled Kid, Perry White, Superboy, Sun Boy, Streaky the Supercat, the first Robotman, Chameleon Boy, Phantom Girl, Metallo, Mister Mxyzptlk, and Ultra-Humanite for DC Comics.
In the comics Cat Grant’s son’s name is Adam not Carter. Sadly the character was killed by Winslow Schott, the Toyman. Having Winn watch Carter is strange since another version of his father killed another version of Cat’s son. Winn’s toys or “adult collectibles” are another allusion to his father, the Toyman.
Gotham Season 2 Episode 10: The Son of Gotham
Silver St. Cloud was created by Steve Englehart and Mike Gold and first appeared in Detective Comics #470 (June 1977). She was characterized as a socialite who had a relationship with Bruce Wayne. She discovered that he was Batman. She left him, because she could not handle worrying about his safety all the time. She is killed by Onomatopoeia in a story that was released in 2009-2010. The original character was not the scheming spy that is presented in Gotham. The two portrayals are miles apart.
Theo Galavan is locked up in Blackgate Penitentiary. Where Arkham Asylum holds the criminally insane, Blackgate holds your standard criminals powered and unpowered. It first appeared in Detective Comics #629 (May 1991). Pre-Crisis there was Gotham State Penitentiary.
