What's lacking here isn't "imagination", but something else. Perhaps what you went on to describe.
I think this is a semantic arguement. And I always find those moot. I don't think we particularly disagree. I'm not saying 'he's an idiot with no creative imagination whatsoever'. I'm just saying his imagination obv doesn't extend to a DC world on screen.

Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
