Crisis on Earth X--CW's 6(!) series superhero crossover
« on: October 14, 2017, 05:48:54 AM »
I'm not sure at what point they crossover too many things at once, but this year Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl are joined by CW Seed series The Ray and Vixen.  Not only will they appear, but it looks like the main villains will be Ray's main villains, evil counterparts of many of the familiar heroes.

It has potential.  Last year's crossover was actually pretty good, for the most part.

This is a different Vixen than LoT's Vixen?

CWSeed's Vixen is the modern version which had appearances on The Flash if I remember, LoT's Vixen is her ancestor (grandmother, I believe) who passed her necklace down within the family.

LoT used the grandmother version of Vixen because the other actress became unavailable but for a time traveling show it was just a matter of planning to add her to the Justice Society during World War 2 so she could join the LoT team briefly and expand on her family legacy (modern Vixen said her grandmother died during the invasion of her land and apparently her time with LoT changed her mind on letting that history play out.)

Arrow, actually.  Green Arrow calls her in to help deal with Dahrk as she is also a magic based character.  She was played by the actress who voiced her in the cartoon and they reference their meeting in that cartoon.  LoT also mentions that they've met her before.

Watching it now.  The first 45 minutes were a drag.  We didn't need to spend THAT long getting read for the wedding.  Now Nazis have invaded, though, so it's looking up.

Invading Nazis, the answer to every boring tele show....

Watched parts 1 and 2 earlier. Did I miss something? Because I never heard an explanation for where Atom, Vixen and Isis are. Still on the ship, holding down the fort?

And I really wish they'd do a crossover that takes place on Kara's Earth. J'onn and Guardian being left out just feels wrong. (Then again, James hasn't been Guardian at all this season, and I don't have a problem with that.)

They show up in Part 4, apparently still doing time travel adventures.

I enjoyed the crossover. I feel sorry to anyone who didn't watch all 4 shows and wasn't aware of the crossover before tuning in, because boy oh boy will you be lost.

Highlights for me:

-Pretty much everything Mick said.

-Pretty much everything involving Jax and Stein

-The Ray was surprisingly bland. I'm hoping he gets a much needed fleshing out in his animated web series.

Onto more spoilery stuff:

That's why I said many.  Not all.
