With four heroic lineups airing on the CW, DC has been able to showcase a variety of heroes and villains from their comic books. While some characters are familiar, like Superman or Kid Flash, the CW series have been more than welcoming to lesser-known heroes like the Legends of Tomorrow. With new seasons of our favorite heroes starting this Fall, the question is who will glide into the #Arrowverse next?
Cheetah is commonly an antagonist for Wonder Woman, and while Diana hasn’t joined the CW yet, that doesn’t mean Cheetah can’t visit Central City. In a recent #Flash episode, "Infantino Street," there was a hint that Cheetah might be imprisoned in A.R.G.U.S., where her name appeared on a cell door. This might have been just been an Easter Egg for fans, but she could make for an interesting villain and fresh face in the upcoming season. Also, with the show’s inclusion of King Shark and Gorilla Grodd, a woman with the appearance of a Cheetah would fit in just fine.
Jericho might be familiar to anyone who watched the original Teen Titans cartoon (the blond boy playing his acoustic on a rock — he was great) or has kept up with the #DC comics both old and new. One of the most interesting facts about Jericho is that he’s the son of Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke. Where has Slade Wilson recently appeared? #Arrow. Also, didn’t Oliver mention in the Season 5 finale that Slade was looking for his son, Joe? Joseph Wilson a.k.a. Jericho? Season 6 looks like it will be focusing on family with the inclusion of Oliver’s son, William, so it seems likely that fans will get to meet Jericho rather soon.
The Flash has given spotlight to quite a few speedsters over its three seasons, but its only grazed the surface compared to the gallery of comic book characters with incredible speed. One of those characters is Barry Allen’s very own grandson, Bart Allen. Some fans might know him better as Impulse. The Flash writers aren’t afraid of playing with time travel plots, so it would be interesting to have an episode or two where the cast runs across Impulse (pun intended). He’d certainly fit in well with the strong family theme of the show and it would be fun to see if he’s anything like his grandfather even if this Bart Allen arrives from an alternate Earth.
Of course, the DC Universe is a holy grail of unique characters who have yet been brought to life. With the renewal of all four CW series, anything is possible.
Which of these characters do you think is most likely to show up in the Arrowverse soon?
