Arrowverse Crossover Preview: Supergirl, Impulse & XS vs [SPOILER]
After planting the seeds across Batwoman, Superman & Lois & DC's Legends of Tomorrow, DC's Stargirl, and The Flash, the big bad of the Arrowverse crossover Earth-Prime is about to be revealed- and it's a game-changer. Just as a reminder, what sets this DC Comics six-issue series different from other comics that stem from television shows is that this crossover actually matters to Arrowverse canon. So to that end, it has the creative teams behind the respective shows actively involved, supplying storylines and concepts that directly or indirectly impacted each show's lore and small-screen universe overall. But now that each of our main players has been introduced, Bart aka Impulse & Nora aka XS find themselves coming face-to-face-to-deadly-energy-staff with the one who's been pulling the strings. But as you're about to see in the preview for Earth-Prime #6 (Hero's Twilight), speed won't be enough to save Bart & Nora. No, they're going to need something a bit more "super"…
