The Arrowverse is heading towards a crisis. Since last year’s Elseworlds crossover, characters like The Green Arrow and The Flash have been prepping for what’s to come, the Crisis On Infinite Earths. As first released by Entertainment Weekly, the first look at the crossover’s big bad, The Anti-Monitor, has arrived.
Played by LaMonica Garrett, who has also appeared as The Monitor since last season, the Anti-Monitor is the driving villainous force behind the multi-earth crisis. He is a galactic being with near limitless cosmic abilities. Debuting within the pages of DC Comics in 1985 miniseries Crisis on Infinite Earths, Anti-Monitor’s devastating ability to absorb the energies of his surroundings into himself resulted in the end of several Earths and DC heroes.
The upcoming 5-episode crossover on The CW will be one of the biggest and most ambitious in television history. Every character from the current Arrowverse shows will be involved. In addition, actors from shows like Smallville and Birds of Prey will reprise their roles and help save the multiverse.
Within the Crisis on Infinite Earths comic event, DC decided to eliminate their multiverse in favor of one single unified Universe. Many have theorized that the Anti-Monitor will have the same ambition when he goes head to head with The Flash, Supergirl, and more.
