Ed,

FYC:
Superboy (1988–1992)
The adventures of the Man of Steel in his teenage years.

Although this series is not as good as Smallville, it is none-the-less a prequel of sort to Superman.

Ian Witham, I get your points, but major comics characters at this point have so much origin variations that each adaptation is inevitably some kind of consensus between different comic versions.

This poll is about our favourite prequels. To be a prequel, it must build up to something that was made earlier but set later. "Superboy" filled the gap between the stories of Superboy and Superman in the comic books. "Smallville" contradicted the comic books, "The Adventures Of Superman", "Lois And Clark", every Superman movie, and all the Arrowverse shows. Therefore, "Smallville" is not a prequel.

Ian Witham in a wider sense it still preceeds a story we all know, which is a definition of a prequel.

I know that, but he is not the Clark or the Superman of any other TV show or movie. Nobody in "Smallville" is the young version of anyone in any version of Superman I have seen. That means it is not a prequel, just as Spielberg's "Young Sherlock Holmes" is not a prequel to the Sherlock Holmes books, films, radio shows, or TV shows. Both are alternate versions.

I don't see how The Tudors is a prequel. It's just based on the same history as all the other versions.

It shows the early life that the movies do not touch upon. I can label it season 1 if you like.

Hoping yes.
There are some people that give up after 20-40 polls. They have made better polls than mine. They may have got discouraged. I was getting close at 130 polls. Guess I have gotten more patient and vocal in my old age! LOL
I hope that others get recognition too.

And thanks. My luck it will only be up for two days and not two weeks!
Crossing my fingers for 10,000 or better votes. 5,000 would be nice too!

I remember it. It was a poll with my name on it. But that's it.
It was not my creation.
This is my first "Baby"

Stupidity of ? Dunno!
I was pissed when they pulled it.
But you have to ask, if they went another season would it have gone like Game of Thrones last season debacle?
Sometimes it is best to know when, "The End" is!
But another show based of off Black Sails, like a prequel to this prequel, I can totally see a 4-5 year story board for.
Thanks Oliver

Not sure why The Mandalorian is included as it's not a prequel.

Good Catch
I'll change what it it precedes.
Tomorrow.

Also, anything made after one titles release, (in this case 2015 and 2019) that takes place in a previous time, is a prequel to those events. Loosely based in this case that is. I'm sure that at some point in this series a mention will eventually be made to someone in The Force Awakens.
