Titled “Worlds Finest,” the hour sees titular heroine Kara (Melissa Benoist) gain a new ally when the lightning-fast superhero The Flash, aka Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) suddenly appears from an alternate universe. Barry helps Kara battle Silver Banshee, aka Siobhan Smythe (Italia Ricci), and Livewire (Brit Morgan) in exchange for her help in finding a way to return him home.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

It looks terrific, I look forward to the episode. For all the world it sounds like an old fashioned team-up book synopsis, Which reinforces my growing belief that television has finally reached the point where it has made the comicbook redundant... \(fear\)

As a matter of tradition and being faithful to one of his key abilities I do wish that Barry would assert himself and discover the key to travelling between earths is not in finding some magic portal, but is within himself. It might be tricky to realise the explanation for attuning himself to vibrational frequencies within a televisual medium, but if the series is sticking with the parallel earth concept it would be advantageous to make it so...

Just curious as to why she could not help him out with Zoom, and also wondering how would Barry feel now that he knows that Zoom and RF are faster then him, and now maybe both Kara and kal are?

5th fastest man alive?

Well it appears Supergirl exists in another parallel earth which The Flash will visit, which is a nice means of acknowledging that series and its other stelevision station. But it also supports the longstanding suspicion that The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of the DCU characters are living on an earth with no Superman/Supergirl and probobly no Batman or Wonder Woman either. Which is... interesting to contemplate.

I have little doubt The Flash will be seen as faster than Supergirl, but it will be a nice episode as both are very much alike in terms of personality and I see them becoming very good friends because of their shared experiences and positive natures. But I do also wonder how Barry will react to meeting someone with such an extreme level of allround power - as there is simply no one on this level in the Flash/Arrow universe. Not even Zoom and Earth-2.

I also wonder if they will show him afster in running, but kara able to match him while in flight...

And also, would that Earth 3 not be in future a tempting target for say Savage?

And was there some kind of internet data that suggested both waybe Industries and lexcorp exist in Flash verse?

Very interesting if they have a lex, but no Supes/bats to counter him!
