Warning: spoilers forward for the primary two episodes of the “Disaster On Earth-X” crossover.
The “Disaster On Earth-X” crossover introduced an entire bunch of very unhealthy guys to Earth-1 to battle the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. On the world known as Earth-X, the Nazis gained World Struggle II again within the 1940s, and every little thing is mostly horrible for the harmless of that place. We have identified for some time that the heroes of the Arrow-verse could be dealing with their evil doubles and Nazi cohorts within the annual crossover, but it surely was by no means clear precisely why the Nazis would select to invade Earth-1 of all locations. In any case, there are lots of Earths with lots of totally different heroes within the multiverse.
The Arrow leg of of the “Disaster On Earth-X” crossover revealed simply why Earth-1 was the goal of the Earth-X Nazi invasion, and it was not what any of us in all probability noticed coming.
Having totally conquered their very own Earth, the Nazis determined it was time to take the warfare into the multiverse and try to beat others. Earth-1 was chosen as a result of one crucial particular person within the evil regime on Earth-X wanted the assistance of her double. Overgirl — that’s, evil Kara of Earth-X who simply so occurs to be married to evil Oliver — is dying as a consequence of an overload of photo voltaic radiation in her bloodstream, which the great guys had been capable of uncover due to Oliver’s profitable shot with a kryptonite arrow. Her coronary heart goes to provide out and she’s going to die except she will get a transplant from one other Kryptonian. As there evidently are not any spare Kryptonians who’re simply Overgirl’s measurement on Earth-X, she needed to go after Kara, who simply so occurred to be on Earth-1 to attend Barry and Iris’ wedding ceremony.
Sadly for the great guys of Earth-1, the mixed forces of Overgirl, Reverse Flash, and throngs of Nazi troopers had been an excessive amount of for even the numerous heroes from 4 totally different superhero sequence. Darkish Arrow wasn’t even current, and the unhealthy guys had been nonetheless capable of get the win over Oliver, Barry, Kara, Sara, and others. The Earth-X crew stored everyone alive to make use of as leverage in opposition to Kara in order that Kara would permit Overgirl to reap her coronary heart and dwell on. The heroes (other than Kara) had been transported to a focus camp on Earth-X.
In fact, the Nazis do additionally need to take over Earth-1, so it is crucial that the heroes make it again house sooner reasonably than later. Hopefully they’ll escape rapidly sufficient to get phrase to Kara in order that she refuses to cooperate. Even weakened as she could also be by the consequences of purple solar generated by the prism stolen on Earth-1 (and/or the kryptonite courtesy of Metallo), Kara continues to be a strong fighter, and he or she’ll definitely be motivated to battle again.
I am questioning if maybe your entire purpose the Earth-X crew invaded Earth-1 reasonably than Kara’s Earth-38 is that Earth-38 is the house of heroes like Superman and Martian Manhunter along with Supergirl. Formidable because the forces of Earth-1 could also be with the likes of Oliver and Barry and the remainder, the Nazis would in all probability have much more bother with two Kryptonians and a Green Martian that they’d with the energetic heroes of Earth-1. We’ll have to attend and see.
There’s undoubtedly loads of motion nonetheless in retailer with the remainder of “Disaster On Earth-X” crossover. The Arrow leg of the occasion additionally brought back a long-lost character in a fairly wild means, and the Supergirl portion introduced a character who could possibly be anyone necessary from DC Comics historical past.
