    I was only still watching Legends and Black Lightning. What even is left of the Arrowverse? Stargirl and the Lois and Clark thing? Are Flash or Supergirl still things?

    Gotcha. I stopped watching The Flash in I think season 3. Because it was, you know, terrible.

    I guess I'll wait to see if Sarah Lance is able to emigrate to another show.

    Based off the finale of Legends,
    They're all in Time Jail, so Sara is going nowhere.

    Backloggery. Yes, it's updated.

    The sig image will return when I stop playing "Mature" games. Unless I never stop. Oh god, what if I never stop?

    Is Stargirl Arrowverse? I thought it was at most peripherally related, like Titans and Doom Patrol.

    You know what? Nanowrimo's cancelled on account of the world is stupid.

    You're right, it's an alternate Earth-2. So I guess only Flash and S&L are left.

    It’s Arrowverse, but a different Earth.

    Then again, Superman & Lois would seem to be totally divorced from the other shows, save for that random Diggle appearance last season.

    Calling Star Girl part of the Arrowverse is pretty tenuous. The only link it has is a tiny fan service recycled footage cameo in the Crisis crossover. Which Titans and Doom Patrol also had. You might as well say that the Justice League movie is part of the Arrowverse, because it at least had an even bigger appearance.

    Personally, I’d just stick to considering “any show that regularly crosses over and acknowledges the others” part of the Arrowverse. Which is basically Flash and just baaaaarely Superman & Lois.

    I just want Kara to show up once. Just once. Doesn't even need to be anything other than a cameo at Christmas, just want to see Superman, Superboy(s?) and Supergirl hang as a family.

    Maybe Tal-Ro can come.

    I know the pandemic did a number on crossovers, but Superman & Lois doesn’t even acknowledge the other shows exist.

    Supergirl at least tried, with all the “Superman is off-planet” or “Superman is dealing with disasters on the other side of the world“ reasons for him being off-screen.

    At the same time, I’m not sure how well, let’s say, the established Lex Luthor would fit in with this Superman.

    Stargirl is a CW show based on DC Comics. Regardless of whether or not it is Arrowverse canon, it is so similar to the other shows discussed in this thread that it would feel weird talking about it anywhere else.

    You know, the Legends spending the rest of their lives in Time Prison because Booster Gold snitched on them seems like a thematically appropriate and just end to their story. It's not really a cliffhanger at all. It's just a bunch of upstarts who repeatedly played God getting what they deserve.

    Oh god, that means Legends ended just like

    Legends was the most fun of the shows. It wasn't "good" but it also wasn't trying to be. It was a ridiculous premise that it eventually leaned in to. It had run its course, but was fun while it lasted. Beebo for life!

    At this point I think it's safe to look at the last Crisis crossover as the conclusion of the Arrowverse - the actual one, not that last Flash half-attempt. After that it's been nothing but cancelations or REALLY dodgy quality (Flash/Batwoman) in the seasons.

    Superman & Lois is pretty great, but is so disconnected it might as well be an Elseworlds.

    All in all it was a pretty comic-historic era in television with some great stuff in there. Couldn't last forever, and honestly it was probably time for it to come to an end.

    Says it all.

    For what its worth, Doom Patrol is shown alongside the resetting of the arrowverse. I dont remember if they did titans or not. But everything is arrowverse if the actors will show up for a cameo and they can get the rights approval. Were just a cross show event away to re-linking everyone with the flash. They went to the effort to let flash know theres other universes still for a reason.

    I really wanted Alice from batwoman to go on Legends. She was probably the best part of the show for a while.

    Superman & Lois 2x11:
    The backhalf of this season really hit its stride after a rocky start. I'm glad they've finally started bringing the Cushings in on the secret. Soon they won't have to do separate, unreleated plots just to keep them on the show.

    Also, seeing Jordan get his first win against a superpowered opponent was special. He better be in the suit by the end of the season.

    Jonathan: Well, clearly I didn't want Candace to get in trouble.
    Superman: Well, maybe she should have. She was selling drugs!

    Sheesh. Clark Kent? More like Narc Kent.

    They really should not have given the Cushings two kids; the younger one is only noticeable in her perpetual absence.

    I swear sometimes it feels like even the writers forget she exists.

    Honestly, they could change the actress for the other kid for every appearance and I wouldn’t even notice because it’s so infrequent and inconsequential.

    Most recent episode drove that home with Lana
    telling Sarah that she was the best daughter. Like, I get that it's hyperbole, but Sarah's still not an only child.
