In the closing moments of Supergirl, we were launched head-first into the biggest superhero crossover we have ever seen on television. For one week only, all four shows on The CW - Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow - followed one story line, revolving around an invasion by the alien menace known as the Dominators.

This event was filled with all the nerdy goodness that fans were hoping it would be. Although the Dominator invasion is a great through-line story, the most memorable moments were when our favorite heroes joined forces, fought each other, or generally just kicked ass. So, for your viewing pleasure, I have gathered the best fight scenes from #TheFlash, #Arrow, and #LegendsofTomorrow crossover episodes all in one place - because, who likes to go looking for the clips they want? Enjoy!
Before you get started, check out every Arrowverse crossover that's aired so far in the clip below:
'The Flash' Crossover Episode
All of the crossover episodes have already aired, and we have had a lot of wonderful moments. The Flash dealt with the consequences of Barry constantly messing with the timeline - consequences that reach far beyond what he once believed. It was also the first time that we got to see all of the Arrowverse heroes interact with each other -although, it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows. The psuedo-Justice League got off to a rocky start - due to the Dominators mind control device. Luckily, while they figured things out, we got some great fight scenes out of the episode.
Flash & Green Arrow Vs. The Justice League
Surprisingly, the Dominators were not the biggest threat our heroes had to face. Due to a mind control device, hero was turned against hero, and the fate of the planet hung in the balance. Firestorm, Heatwave, White Canary, Speedy, Spartan, The Atom, and #Supergirl - under the Dominators' influence - mercilessly attacked Oliver and Barry, in one of the best superhero death-matches ever!
The Flash vs. Supergirl
In the showdown of the century, we got to see "The Scarlet Speedster" go head-to-head with the "The Girl of Steel". Supergirl is one of the most powerful beings in the universe, and is extremely hard to defeat. Thanks to #TheFlash - who is quite powerful himself - Supergirl didn't cause the amount of damage she was capable of.
'Arrow' Crossover Episode
Amidst Oliver's journey on the 100th episode of #Arrow, there was plenty of badass superhero action to go around - although, we didn't see much of our heroes fighting the Dominators. We were delighted to see the fledgling heroes from Arrow meet #Supergirl and #TheFlash, and every big-bad from Arrow thrown-down against Oliver and company.
True to fashion, Arrow had some amazing fight scenes in its crossover episode. We also got to see some old faces, Oliver facing his past head-on, and we learned more about what the Dominators' ultimate goal is. The following clips are the very best action from Arrow's crossover episode!
Oliver, Diggle, and Sara Vs. Deathstroke
In the final minutes of The Flash, the Dominators beamed Oliver, Sara, Diggle, Thea, and Sara aboard one of their ships. Once aboard, the Dominators placed our heroes in a "dream world", using their memories to map and populate their environment. When Oliver and Diggle began to realize this world was is not real, the Dominator's programming sent Deathstroke - at least a projected memory version of him- to attack them both. The result of which was Sara Lance kicking a whole lot of ass.
The Flash & Supergirl Vs. Cyberwoman
While Oliver and company are stranded on the Dominator ship, the rest of Team Arrow searched for a piece of tech to help locate them. Felicity pinned down the location of such tech, and she calls in some "back-up" to help procure the device. Supergirl and Flash come to assist Wild Dog, Ragman, and Mister Terrific - by assist, I mean defeat the enhanced individual, as if she was made of paper. This "fight" was one of the most one-sided beat downs the Arrowverse has ever seen - but it was still incredibly fun to watch!
Team Arrow Vs. The Legion Of Arrow Villains
Oliver and company come to the realization that they need to escape their false reality. When they finally try to escape, they are confronted by every villain that has ever threatened Team Arrow - sans Ra's Al Ghul. Damien Darhk, Deathstroke, and Merlyn stand between our heroes and their freedom. Let the royal rumble begin!
'Legends of Tomorrow' Crossover Episode
The Dominators are nearing their "end game", and it's up for to our pseudo-Justice League to take them down. It was "all hands on deck" - and plenty of fists in Dominator faces - in the final showdown. The stakes were pretty high, but luckily for our heroes, the good guys tend to win! Legends of Tomorrow did not disappoint, and we got one of the best superhero throw-downs ever!
Green Arrow, The Flash, White Canary, and The Atom Vs. Government Goons
We were introduced to a government figure - who also kidnapped Citizen Steel, Vixen, and Heatwave in 1951 - and laid a trap for Oliver, Barry, Sara, and Ray in modern day. The man who laid the trap, was doing what he thought was best for mankind, however he came to the fight short handed, and his armed goons paid the price. Barry has his very own "Quicksilver" moment - just like in Days of Futures Past - while Oliver and company easily handle the rest.
The Final Showdown - The Justice League Vs. The Dominators
In a scene reminiscent of Independence Day, The Justice League goes head-to-head with the Dominators. Oliver and company fight to hold the aliens at bay (by kicking their asses), while Barry plants disruptive devices on each of the aliens. Meanwhile, Sara and Cisco work to stop a bomb falling to earth, as Firestorm calls upon his transmutation powers to stop it. This one was for all the marbles, and our heroes did not disappoint.
That's a Wrap!
Since the first crossover between Arrow and The Flash, each subsequent event continues to get better, and this year has been the best yet! Not only did our characters solve a lot of their interpersonal issues, but we also got a ton of great fight scenes. The Dominators were defeated - although they were just angry about Barry fucking up the timeline, again - and normalcy was restored to the planet. So, now the question is, what is next for our heroes? Well, you can find out by checking out all the DC Comics shows, Monday - Thursday at 8PM/ET on The CW!
