This season's Joe's storyline is inspired by the social changes that are happening in the world today. Because with everything we are experiencing every day in 2020, I felt there was a great opportunity to indirectly comment on the truths that people could easily recognize, by doing it in a fun way. […] Obviously, we are in a sci-fi way as we are in a show with superhero stars.
The showrunner then added:
Joe's character goes through several changes and ends up in a place that is unexpected for him, but which is honorable and very aware of today's legal issues. So, the storytelling for his character's plot, I think, is the most exciting thing I've been able to write for him since I've been showrunner. Can't wait for people to see it.
