We are heading for a Crisis on Infinite Earths.

This was a year-long maxi-series published by DC in 1986 or so. It included many crossovers to many of the books at the time. The main goal was to organize the DC universe and make it easier to understand. Before that, there were multiple Earths, multiple origins, etc.

I read those books. Like most "event" based books, they lead up to a big climax and after that, then what? The individual books had to pick up the pieces. In the Crisis, the Flash sacrificed himself and died. (Don't worry, he was later resurrected.)

Supergirl died too. (Great cover art by the way with a sobbing Superman holding Supergirl's dead body.)

and now we have a five-episode Arroverse crossover. Green Arrow believes he will sacrifice himself. I believe this because his show is ending. Flash believes he is destined to die. I don't believe this as his show will be continuing.

The internet is all abuzz with who is guest starring on this thing. Tom Welling, Burt Ward, the list goes on. My concern is that either there will be so much guest-starring that the plot gets lost, or all that build-up will lead to one action montage where we see all the previous heroes in action over a five minute or so spread.

The idea of it is great, but once again, it is like DC looked at the "infinity war and endgame," and said, "we have to do that somehow."

I hope it works, but I am worried about it.

It confused the heck out of the DC Universe to this day. Lord only knows what will happen when the TV folks get involved.

It's great to see that Burt Ward will be making a guest appearance. Don't know whether he will be playing an Adult-Robin or a totally different character. But it reminds me of the 1960s Justice League in an issue where there was a One-Shot appearance of an Adult-Robin but from Earth-Two. If I remember correctly, Cliff, the Batman of the Parallel Earth is retired so Robin takes over, in a sense being two heroes at the same time. To reflect that combination, his costume is dark colored.

Yes, I owned that book. I liked the idea of it, though I like nightwing much better.
