Kara tells Oliver and Barry that their team are Earth's mightiest heroes, a title normally reserved for the Justice League's Marvel Comics rivals, the Avengers. See more »


The Flash captures an agent's bullet and turns it around to face him, and when the action resumes, the bullet continues on it's new trajectory into the agent's shoulder. Merely changing the orientation of the bullet is not enough to make it change trajectory, and if he flicked it himself there is no need to point it in the proper direction at that short a range.

Oliver Queen: Last year.
Barry Allen: It sure beats screwing up the world.
Kara Danvers: Hey, you are too hard on yourself.
Oliver Queen: That's what people usually tell me.
Kara Danvers: And for good reason, I'm sure. But, back on my Earth, it's just me and my cousin. Between the two of us, we're more powerful than...

Believe it or not, The Invasion! 3-part crossover was enjoyable!

They're certain areas for me that was cringe worthy.

01. Iris being overprotected to Wally: She was acting more like a mother than a "sibling" (which in reality both Iris and Wally are aunt and nephew)that forbids her to not use his speed. Though i was happy to see Wally fully embrace himself as Kid Flash and standing up to "drama queen".

02. Vibe's grudge on Flash: Through the entire crossover, Cisco's personal grudge on Barry being responsible for changing the time line resulted in his brother's death was just getting ridiculous as his pop culture references. But karma really bit him in the ass after he alter time by helping freed a Dominator resulted in a much bigger problem. Cisco missed up & they got paid. Serves him right.

03. Felicity: Less of her, the better :) Moving on! :)

04. Arrow 100: though it was a nice milestone, the subplot with Cisco, Felicity & the Outsiders along with Flash & Supergirl (aka the Justice Glee) was the main focus and less of Ollie, Diggle, Sara, Ray & Thea that were abducted by the Dominators.

06. The FX: The Dominators were created using cutting-edge computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane's interpretation of the characters. Though hats off to the FX people, we've only seen little of the Dominators. Plus in the credits, who provided their voice?

07. The Network: for the men and women of the CW, the marketing for this crossover suck, even the tag line "Heroes v Aliens" was kind of lame (especially that the White Canary & Heat Wave are actually "Legendary" villains). But the worst of it is that they marketed as a 4 part crossover event. Flash, Arrow & Legends has titled "Invasion!" & it's only 3 parts "not 4". The majority of Supergirl's episode "Medusa" was a standalone episode except the final 2 minutes (incuding 1 and 2 scenes)and yet fans eat it up. All it ended up was a error of promotion & labeled it as a 4 part episode, which turned out to be nothing but a cheap gimmick.

And finally, 08. Supergirl: 1 word: overkill. Barry thought this was a good idea, thinking "in order to fight aliens, we need an alien (but from a different earth)" by getting help from Supergirl. For me it was a waste of time & effort. In the end it was more of a tag along. The training sequence between her and Green Arrow, Speedy & the "Legends" was a joke, giving everything they got and just "tickling" her. Also Kara was kind of out of place, no where to fit in & was underused. To be honest with you, they didn't really need Supergirl in this crossover. They could've fought the Dominators without her.

For the good moments:

  • the hall of justice

  • The standoff scene

  • The fight sequences

  • familiar faces: Deathstroke, Laurel, Ollie's parents, etc.

  • Team ups!!

Minus the flaws, some of the wooden acting & the unnecessary soap opera drama and characters, It was enjoyable. :)

Invasion! 9/10
