CW's Arrowverse has begun it's crossover mini events for the past couple of years and this year should be bigger than ever. With 4 shows creating one huge event being call "Crisis on Earth-X", a story that will pit the heroes of the arrowverse against evil doppelgangers of themselves from Earth-X, a universe where the Nazi's one WWII.
The above artwork is from artist Phil Jimenez showing us what we can kind of expect from this crossover event but if you can't quite figure it out from the picture here is the official synopsis:
"With all of the heroes in town to celebrate Barry and Iris's wedding, villains from Earth-X crash the festivities with a deadly agenda."
The heroes and villains of Earth-X will also appear on Freedom Fighters: The Ray, an animated series set on Earth-X and starring The Ray. No word yet on whether or not Uncle Sam, The Ray, and the other Freedom Fighters might show up to aid the superheroes in their battle.
“We conceived this year’s crossover to be evocative of the annual Justice League/Justice Society crossovers we grew up with and looked forward to as kids," said executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim in a statement. "Phil was the perfect choice to bring the comic book cover iteration of this idea to life. You can count on one hand the number of artists who could compellingly represent so many characters in a single image. Phil is one of them. And his design invokes the cover of Justice League #207, which was the 20th Annual JLA/JSA crossover. Our ten year-old selves are in heaven.”
"Some of the first DC Comics I ever read were those insane crossovers with a dozen characters from alternate earths and dimensions -- the kind of stuff I later became known for!" Jimenez said. "So when CW asked me to do an homage cover inspired by those amazing team up covers, I couldn't resist, the chance to draw all of The CW’s DC Super-Heroes in one crazy action sequence was insanely fun and exciting. And Romulo Fajardo'a colors brought everything to life!”
So very excited to see what comes out of this crossover event and how it will impact all of the shows in the Arrowverse. Stay tuned for more Nerd News.
