I really don't get this upcoming Crisis crossover.
As I understand it, in the comics, the purpose was to merge all the multiverse into one world.
But I really don't see the point of doing that here. Is it to make all the shows easier to crossover? That doesn't make sense to me because Arrow and Flash are set on the same Earth (and time) and and only ever crossover for mid-season events, plus Arrow is ending. And how will this affect shows like Black Lightning?
If the purpose is to kill off characters like Barry and Kara, I don't see the point, as it would end The Flash and Supergirl, both of which are popular shows. Oliver could be killed off, but that isn't going to make much of a difference seeing as Arrow is ending.
Could there be some sort of reverse Crisis, where every show ends up on a different Earth? That could be interesting, I suppose.
Is it just because Crisis is big in the comics and the various producers involved thought it would be interesting to do it in live action, but there won't really be any lasting consequences?
I'm rather curious. I don't like what I'm seeing so far. Arrow, which has always been the most grounded show, looks like it's set to have the most "magical" season of all next season. And this entire season of Supergirl (which I rather enjoyed) seems to have been a complete waste of time, seeing as they just resurrected the main antagonist of the season.
I just hope it's worth it.
(I hope this post makes some sort of sense).
