Flash and Supergirl Crossover!!!

Thanks to mutual producer Greg Berlanti, CBS and CW merge...well, maybe it's more the latter visiting the former, when Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) meets Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) on this week's "Supergirl" installment, "World's Finest" (a title otherwise linked to the ongoing Batman/Superman comic-book line). 

"The Flash" has opened the Multiverse door, and with this, any number of wonderful possibilities await: this particular crossover being one of its imaginative, anything-goes results. (A "Flash" prequel to the installment will air the following night on CW.) Still, that a character from one network can zoom onto another (regardless of the obvious Berlanti/DC/WB connections) is historic. It also generates the same excitement that I experienced as a kid when Batman/Robin and Green Hornet/Kato teamed, or gosh, when the legendary Roy Rogers guest starred on "Wonder Woman". 

Promotion for the Flash/Supergirl episode has leaned heavily upon the popular '70s jumbo-sized comic where Flash and Superman race for charity (an issue I still have, I might add), but this particular meeting will focus mainly on Allen helping Danvers combat the cunning combo of Silver Banshee (Italia Ricci) and Livewire (Brit Morgan).

This merger is truly something to get excited about and is as significant as any other live-action, superhero team-up this year. I hope beyond hope it leads to more such televised crossovers in the near future. One really can't beat this kind of endearing fun!!!


  1. Man, "World's Finest" was sure a fun episode. The crossover was seamless, really. Was glad it incorporated the good-spirited race at the end. For Supergirl, it was also a fine, redemptive story, coming off the heels of her "Superman III" scenario. Anyway, I'm most pleased with the results here. Bravo! I wanna sequel and darn soon!

  2. Hallelujah! "Supergirl" soars to CW. I couldn't be happier, and of course, that means more crossovers!!!
