‘Arrow’ Villain Prometheus Will Appear In Arrowverse Crossover

Arrow Prometheus Arrowverse
Prometheus was one of the deadliest villains on Arrow, and he’s set to make a return in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover “Crisis on Earth X”. But there’s a twist – we’ll be meeting the Earth-X version of the supervillain this time.

Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Prometheus-X, as he’ll be known in the crossover, is going to make an appearance in the Earth-X dimension, a reality in which the Nazis won World War II. The heroes of the Arrowverse have to face off against their Earth-X counterparts (Dark Arrow, Dark Flash, and Overgirl) who are, predictably, Nazis. Anyone hoping that this would mean that Prometheus-X is some kind of hero in the alternate universe is in for some bad news – not only is he still bad, he’s arguably even worse than he was in the “Prime” Arrowverse.

But the real mystery is who it is behind the mask. While it took a while for the Arrowverse to actually reveal that their version of Prometheus (who does not have a known secret identity in the comics) was actually Adrian Chase, Star City’s District Attorney, it’s been confirmed that the alternate universe version of the character is, in fact, someone new. The crossover is about two months away from airing, so until then, fans can anticipate a new take on the mystery villain.

The 4-part “Crisis on Earth-X” crossover event is scheduled to begin with Supergirl and Arrow on Monday, November 27, and concludes with The Flash and Legends on Tuesday, November 28.

10 Heroes Who Should Get Their Own CW Arrowverse Shows

Previous1 of 11


This past week marked the season finales for the core DC CW shows from the Arrowverse. Legends of Tomorrow ended a little bit earlier than Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow did, but all of the finales were great. They each successfully concluded the seasons and helped set things in motion for their upcoming seasons of the show. Supergirl teased a potential new villain, while The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow left us off with cliffhangers that will hopefully be resolved early next year.

While each of the DC CW shows were good, this season of Arrow was great! We here at Heroic Hollywood even gave an argument that this season of Arrow was better than this season of The Flash, due to how great this season for Oliver and the other Star City vigilantes were this year. Not only did the show deliver a compelling storyline, great choreographed action, and probably one of the best villains the CW produced (Prometheus), it also marked the return of Slade Wilson/Deathstroke (arguably the second best villain of Arrow), who has been missing since season two. His return at the end of “Missing” made fans excited for his return. Recently actor Manu Bennett has been campaigning for a Deathstroke spin-off within the Arrowverse. The sometimes good, sometimes bad guy was a great presence earlier in Arrow and the character was one of the highlights of the past seasons. It would be interesting to see his backstory if possible, as well as what happens after he helped Oliver and Team Arrow on Lian Yu.

With that said, there are still plenty of characters who could get their own show within the DC universe. The DC CW universe started with Arrow and has quickly spun off into a wide range of shows, each able to stand on their own, each interconnected as well. Because of this, they have created their own coherent cinematic universe. The CW has been very successful with their DC shows as well. They have almost run out of days of the week to have their shows on, and with such a high volume of characters to work with, there’s a great deal of DC characters who could get their own spin-off shows. Next fall we will see Black Lightning (although it’s stated not to be a part of the Arrowverse… yet), so the sky’s the limit for what they can do. Here are a few ideas for spin-offs for the Arrowverse.
