The reasoning behind the sonic sunglasses was lovely though. It gave kids at home a toy they could pick up around the house and use instead of having to pay $20 for a sonic screwdriver toy. Same reasoning behind Capaldi’s more stripped down outfit as well. I think that contrasts with the stylized costume Whittaker… Read more
The last episode of Crisis on Infinite Earths basically confirmed that the multiverse still exists.
