Crisis Event: Green Arrow is New Spectre
Three episodes of the current Arrowverse Crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths are already done, and we’re left with two more. 7 heroes are left to save all the Earths that were killed by the Anti-Matter wave, but there were a lot of questions asked that haven’t been answered yet. One of those questions is Green Arrow. Oliver Queen sacrificed himself to save a Billion more lives on Earth 38. Then his daughter Mia Smoak, Barry Allen & Sarah Lance went on to use the Lazarus Pit on a different in order to resurrect him from the dead. John Constantine helped them try to get Oliver’s soul back but that hasn’t happened yet.
Mia, John Diggle and Constantine tried to rescue Oliver’s soul from a prison of his own, and that prison was none other than Lian Yu. On this prison, the three rescuers found Oliver’s soul, but before they could bring him back, Jim Corrigan (Stephen Lobo) arrived and told Oliver that he would have to “become something else” to save the multiverse. Right here, Oliver transforms into Arrowverse’s new Spectre.
Spectre is a title given to several ant-hero characters from DC Comics as it is an entity that possesses human hosts. He has God like abilities, is immune to damage but can be hurt by powerful magic. So, with Oliver Queen becoming the Spectre, we suspect that he’d now turn out to be the most powerful asset on the side of the heroes. He’d turn out to be even more powerful than Superman, Supergirl & the Flash.
So what will Oliver Queen be doing as Spectre in the Crisis of Infinite Earths? The answer to this question is hidden in the comics. We can be certain that Spectre will play an important part in defeating the Anti-Monitor. In the books, Spectre warns the heroes that the fight isn’t over, after the heroes wrongly believe that the Anti-Monitor lives. The final battle against the Anti-Monitor takes place in the beginning of time as that’s where the Spectre takes the heroes. A battle between Anti-Monitor and the Spectre actually causes all timelines to merge. This is something that the Arrowverse could be moving towards.
Green Arrow has always been the biggest hero of the Arrowverse, even though more powerful heroes followed. Arrow has been the one who started it all, and since this is his final season, we can see him take on the most important role among the heroes. Plus his role as the Spectre could really change things for the entire Arrowverse moving forward. If the different Earths collide and turn into one, then we can see all the heroes of the Arrowverse actually be a part of the same Earth. We’ve heard that Crisis will have a permanent effect on the individual series following the event. So Earths colliding into one could be that permanent effect. But we’d obviously have to wait and see that.
There are still two more episodes left and we’re yet to see some new earths come into play. One of those Earths as we’ve been anticipating is going to be the DCEU. Let’s see what happens. Here’s the synopsis of the final two episodes:
