While this year's #Arrowverse crossover was truly epic, and managed to resolve so many issues while opening up so many more, it isn't the biggest storyline that the CW could have used from DC comics. There are a huge number of villains and storylines that could force #Supergirl to cross that interdimensional breach again and join forces with Arrow, Flash and the Legends. Here are five I would love to see brought to the CW.
An epic villain that would surely be able to take every single one of the CW heroes to bring down, #Brainiac could easily travel across universes, collecting cities such as National City or Star City, leaving some or all of the heroes in his grasp. It would be an incredible opportunity to bring more heroes to the shows or show alternate universes where other heroes exist.
2. The Death Of Superman
That's right! Introducing #Superman on Supergirl was a bold and smart move, but according to the overlords of the CW and the Arrowverse, there are currently no future plans for Tyler Hoechlin to return as the Man of Steel, so why not next year in Supergirl Season 3 (now officially confirmed as well as more seasons for Legends, #Arrow and The Flash) bring in #Doomsday? Get him to kill Superman and have Supergirl call in her friends from Earth One to help her stop the monster?
There's no reason to bring Superman back, so you could have Kara struggle throughout the season with being the true last Kryptonian and the face of the superheroes on her Earth. That would be an incredible story arc to bring to the show, and seeing all of the heroes taking on a monster on the scale of Doomsday would be incredible.
Marvel has Thanos, DC has #Darkseid. The true face of evil in all of DC comics would certainly be an amazing way to bring everyone together again. Whether he attacks Earth One or Supergirl's Earth, Darkseid and his army of Parademons would make the perfect adversary, and could be built towards for some time as well, teasing the coming of something huge across the shows. The obvious problem here is that the DCEU appears to be building towards Darkseid for Justice League 2, so it may be better to leave the lord of Apokolips for now.
4. 'Crisis On Infinite Earths'
The ultimate storyline! The word "Crisis" is possibly the most dire word to use in DC comics, because it signifies a time of huge change and danger, and usually an epic storyline. "Crisis on Infinite Earths" was the first of these such stories in #DC comics and, depending on who you ask, the best. It involved all the Earths and realities that existed in DC comics being brought together, and involved a huge number of heroes and villains, including the Anti-Monitor, an almost all powerful being who could be an epic villain.
An excellent way to start this whole thing off could be with Cisco having more vibes about Earth-2 being destroyed, and then it finally happening and the Harrison Wells from that Earth coming back with Jesse Quick and asking for help. If all the universes were at risk it would be a surefire way to link in Supergirl, as well as the likes of #JayGarrick from Earth-3.
5. The Real Flashpoint
This is a fascinating one — a storyline that we could really see happen. If something such as a "Crisis" did happen, merging Earths in some way, couldn't the Flashpoint universe mix with others to create something much more like the Flashpoint story arc from DC Comics? Where Flash and Supergirl do battle in a massive war, where Oliver Queen is dead and it is his father Robert who is the Green Arrow, where Captain Cold or Heatwave is Central City's only hero? All sorts of crazy things could happen within such a world, and it would give the opportunity to bring back any characters from any of the shows, as well as do crazy things that don't have to last forever because the universes can be fixed again by the end of the story.
So there it is folks! What do you guys think? Could any of these events bring together the Arrowverse for another crossover next year? Or is it to be something else that gets us all our favorite heroes on the same screen again? Let me know what you think in the comments!
