    And can that mean that the Spectre will eventually find his way over to this world?

    Or at least the phantom Stranger, as both of them would have the power and the knowledge to make sure all things would get corrected?

You remind me that a couple or so years ago there were some rumours of a Spectre for television, likely it was just a proposition like the Blue Beetle test footage which Geoff Johns was somehow involved with, but while The Spectre is a possibility for television translation I think The Phantom Stranger would be far more compelling. A man of true mystery, but with more humanity than Jim Corrigan and therefore more flexible for storytelling and repeat appearances in The Flash or Green Arrow.
For me one way to go would be to go for a Starman television series, patterned after James Robinson's work but an open door to introduce Earth-2 characters. It would be possible to translate the likes of The Spectre and The Phantom Stranger here as Starman would have than bit of a fantastical edge inbuilt but also the grittiness of Robinson's grounded Jack Knight - it might be sort of Green Arrow meets The Flash, both rolled into one.

I can easily see characters like The Sandman, The Phantom Lady, and Firebrand being obvious try-outs within the format as well...

That Earth could well be earth 2 that Jay is from, and would be interesting to see other JSA heros coming thru the portal///

The Spectre was to have been into Constatine, but series cancelled before could show up...

The Spectre would be extremely powerfully, so should show up only if they plan to do a mini COIE on Flash/Arrow, but PS would be an intersting character to show up. as maybe foil to Zoom?

Just wonder why Jay was so young, would have liked him to be shown as grizzled WW II vet as in comics, and to be a mentor to barry!
