September 29, 2016: Dominators to Invade Earth in The CW Four-Way Crossover

The CW has revealed that the four-way crossover that will bring “Supergirl”, “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” together, will be the result of an invasion by the Dominators.

“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 Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says. “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.”

I had some Invasion First Strike comics back in the day. If you look close, in the last panel of The Adventures of Superman #449, when Superman is addressing the assembled heroes, you can see Spiderman in the crowd.

I remember seeing that back then two. I thought or might have been the makings of a DC/Marvel crossover. I was 10 years later before I bought the 3 Invasion! issues. 80 pages each. No ads.

The dominators are the least I have expected to show on the screen. But I concur with you. Ambitious and bold.

They might want to thinking about not using the yellow skin color or red dot though. Otherwise yeah, a bold and unexpected choice.
