The Arrowverse Crisis on Earth-X crossover had us at the edge of our seats. If you missed it watch Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow on DStv Now.
The Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow cross-over exceeded our expectations, it was totally awesome and now it is currently available on DStv Catch Up online and the DStv Explora.
Watch more superheroes in the Adventures and Sci-fi Shows playlist.
Our heroes had their hands full when their counterparts from Earth-X, Olivier Queen (Dark Arrow) and Kara Zor-El (Overgirl) who were leaders of a Nazi regime in the alternative Earth. The malevolent pair caused havoc on Earth 1 interrupting Barry Alan and Iris West's wedding with the main goal of literally ripping out Supergirl's heart in order to save Kara’s doppelganger, Overgirl.
We look at some defining moments from the Crisis on Earth-X cross-over.
Firestorm is no more
In recent DC's Legends of Tomorrow episodes, Martin Stein has been torn between staying with the legends and returning back home to spend time with his family. In the cross-over, the other half of Firestorm (Stein) died while aiding his comrades to return to Earth 1. The emotional farewell between Stein and Jefferson Jackson left us with lumps in our throats. With Stein’s death Firestorm, has been distinguished. We can’t wait to find out what impact this will have on Jax as a member of the legends. Word on the streets is that Wally West (Kid Flash) will be joining the legends for a short while.
After Alex Danvers ended her relationship with Maggie Sawyer she was left with a broken heart. Alex and Sarah Lance (White Canary) spent the night together after meeting at Barry and Iris’ rehearsal dinner. By the end of the end of the cross-over, the two lovebirds seemed to be in mutual agreement that the relationship would be difficult to maintain with one staying in a different earth, while the other is busy travelling through time. We have to admit that the two made a cute but awkward couple.
The return of Citizen Cold
Leonard Snart (Citizen Cold) is our favourite anti-hero. We were distraught when Snart died in an earlier season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. In Earth-X his doppelganger is madly in love with Ray Terrill (The Ray). Leo (as he is fondly called by Ray) decides to remain on Earth 1. Leo might join the legends in the upcoming episodes. A partnership we can’t wait to see.
Finally, Iris and Barry tied the knot after the baddies were defeated. Felicity and Oliver also decided to exchange of vows.
Our superheroes take over the 16:45 timeslot on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) and DStv Now. Supergirl airs Mondays, Arrow on Tuesdays, The Flash and the Thinker continue their feud on Wednesday, while the legends mourn a loss of a comrade on Thursday 8 March.
