    Power Girl's connection to the post-Crisis Superman and the JSA was never really clear. Pre-Crisis it made sense JSA member Kal-L as her cousin was her in to the JSA. Post-Crisis just what reason was there for this hero with no WW II connection to join that team as opposed to the Titans, League, or another team?

    Who did Superman fight on New Earth prior to Crisis since all of his major foes were reintroduced for the first time in stories set after the Crisis despite his being stated as a long established hero by this point in the new history.

    How did Mon-El fit into the whole Pocket-Universe story. His Superboy history required him being in the Pocket Universe Phantom Zone but crossing over to the "real" Earth to join the Legion- but somehow being unaware of the difference.

    There were other little things like that (who replaced Diana in JSA history, just how the originals reacted to their "Silver Age" replacements, …) which were never answered, but sort of brushed aside so we could move forward. I'm wondering what the TV shows will leave unaddressed so they can move forward and what they will actually investigate/explain.

    Powergirl was connected to Superman post crisis.

    Superman fought villians that weren't rebooted and general criminals.

    Mon El thought Pocket Earth was the same as clutter Earth. The Trapper would mold the future of clutter Earth and influence it to match Pocket Earth.

    Until Infinite Crisis Powergirl was more connected to Aquaman Post Crisis being Arion's Granddaughter.

    There's books where Superman finds Powergirl then the dumb altantis retcon. Which was later retconned to be lies as well.

    What I really appreciate about the 3 Flashes being in the same crossover, is that their meeting we’re actually crucial moments in their superhero careers. 90s Flash not only saves Arrowverse Flash, but freeing him of the prophesied fate that’s been hanging over his head for years. And then Arrowverse Flash May very well have given dceu Barry the idea for his superhero name. Stuff adds some real heart into the Flash as a live action franchise, that you don’t really get anywhere else besides Doctor Who or something.

    DCEU Flash might also streamline his costume to look more like Gustin's suit.

    In one episode of the original Flash show, there was a costume party and one person was dressed up as Superman. So we know he exists in that universe in some form.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Anybody else shipping Alex and Kate?
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I'm surprised we didn't get any moments between Batwoman and the main Arrowverse LGBTQ characters, aside from Kate being with Kara and Alex at the end during the President's Address.

    Legends showed that a series with a group ensemble of superheroes could easily be done now, so a JL show wouldn't be a struggle as it was in the 1990s when they tried that failed pilot.

    Yeah but Legends (as much as I love it) has basically no character use their powers anymore to save budget.

    That won't work for a Justice League show.

    Yeah, and Legends has basically become a comedy show by this point. A genuinely funny one, granted, but not what people are expecting from a show with the Arrowverse' finest banding together to fight the threats no one hero could take down.

    Even in the dark moments, the crossover still handed us some fun and funny scenes. Like Barry meeting Barry (seriously awesome little moment there).

    As for Ollie "not being there", I think being joined with Spectre, a cosmic entity that only answers to one even more powerful being, would change things for him. Leaving it open for Ollie to pop up down the line in specials and crossovers if he wants.

    And yes! Finally all the CW hero shows are on 1 Earth, barring Stargirl of course.

    But, for now, wouldn't the Bruce that Kate knows become the same one that Kara and Clark know, now being on the same Earth? That should prove interesting going forward.

    Diana's replacement was covered. She was replaced by 3 characters.

    Fury was created for young all stars to cover her imvolvement with that team

    Miss America replaced her membership in the JSA and as secretary

    For those stories that Miss America's powerset couldnt suit, her nother Hippolyta was her replacement.

    Just like Arn Monro replaced GA Superman (with a powerset closer to 1938 supes without upgrade) etc.

    Roy Thomas was maticulous in filling thise gaps, though he was undercut a little
