We have seen Arrow and The Flash team up and the Scarlet Speedster has fought at the side of Supergirl. Now the three of them are teaming up with the Legends of Tomorrow for a great big crossover on The CW.

What a time to be alive!

The crossover will star Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl, Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, alongside Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/White Canary, Nick Zano as Nate Heywood/Steel, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Amaya Jiwe/Vixen, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, and Katie Cassidy is back as Laurel Lance.

Each of the four episodes will be titled “Invasion!” which means that alien race known as The Dominators are the bad guys.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Super-Heroes,” Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim previously said. “We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”

A sinister, technologically advanced alien race, The Dominators view Earth’s tendency to generate super-powered people as a sign that humans may essentially evolve to be genetically superior. That in mind, they decide to wipe them out.

They are highly technologically advanced, and live in a rigid hierarchical society, in which one’s caste is determined by the size of a red circle on one’s forehead. They are master geneticists who can manipulate the metagene to enhance members of their own caste.

The Dominators (also referred to as the Dominion) appeared on the Legion of Super Heroes animated series.

The four-part CW superhero crossover is on this December with the Arrow episode being the 100th episode of the series.

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 PM on The CW followed by The Flash on Tuesdays, Arrow on Wednesdays, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Thursdays.
