Five Great DC Comics Events Perfect For The Next CW ‘Arrowverse’ Crossover


Now that Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow have all ended their respective seasons, we have nothing to do but wait and anticipate what kind of DC inspired fun the CW will bring the Arrowverse in the fall. Of course, each show will have their own stories, but as promised to us after the highly successful Invasion! crossover, we can certainly expect a yearly multi-show event bringing all our heroes together. With that in mind, I searched the multiverse of my mind (with a little help from this Monitor like thing called ‘The Internet’) and chose five great, classic DC events/crossovers the CW can bring us next. Of course, there would have to be changes and adaptations made were applicable but all of these are malleable enough they could work. Read on, enjoy, and as always comment and discuss below!
*Writers note: I purposely left Crisis on Infinite Earths off the list. That is the big daddy of them all, and honestly, could work as a great solo event miniseries (a topic for a whole other article!)


Armageddon 2001 (which would have to be changed to simply Armageddon for obvious reasons), is filled with the kind of high drama we all expect from The CW. In the comics, it’s originally Hawk who, donning an armored suit, betrays his former friends and teammates and becomes the villainous ruler Monarch in a possible future. This could easily be changed to one of our existing CW characters, and I say make it Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow. The Legends of Tomorrow could fall upon a future where Oliver, after losing everyone he loves due to a mistake on the field on his part, becomes obsessed with order, eventually killing Roy Palmer and stealing his armor and tech, becoming a worldwide dictator and despot, ruling over the planet as the rest of our characters are fighting him as rebels. Heroes and villains team up to take on the man who was once a leader and a friend.
