This week and the last one sees the season openings for Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. So due to popular demand we're starting a new topic challenge. From 2016-10-12 12:00 UTC to 2016-10-23 12:00 UTC we're challenging you to all your great questions about the TV-shows set in the Arrowverse (conveniently taggable with ).

Once the challenge is over, we'll tally the results and winners (by question score) here. Also don't forget to suggest and vote for new topics for our next possible challenge.

  • The quote from the showrunners in this answer says that the Arrow-verse (with the hyphen) is Legends, Arrow, and Flash. They then group Supergirl separately. So at least for now, the two are not connected. I guess the idea is that Supergirl could eventually be considered an official part of it, but for the time being, it is a separate thing.

  • At-least Vixen is for sure arrowverse ;)

  • The opening of Supergirl in S2 now features a shot of the Flash (from last season's crossover) when she talks about new friends. So... FWIW, I'd include Supergirl in any Arrowverse topic.

  • @Longspeak I've opened a question about Supergirl in the Arrowverse. I've added my answer, but perhaps others have a better one. Oct 14, 2016 at 18:54

    Supergirl is as much arrow verse as Earth 2 is arrowverse. Arrowverse at this point means the multiverse the shows are a part of.
