Earth-2

    General Tropes 
  • Adaptational Villainy: Quite a few of Earth-2's residents are Evil Counterparts to heroic figures from Earth-1; it's more akin to what the comics call Earth-3. Meanwhile, Earth-3 is the world where Jay Garrick, the real one, is from, and is more akin to Earth-2 in the comics.
  • Adaptation Name Change: More of Adaptation Name Swap. Given how many of Earth-2's residents are Evil Counterparts to heroic figures from Earth-1, it's more akin to what the comics call Earth-3. Meanwhile, Earth-3 is the world where Jay Garrick, the real one, is from, and is more akin to Earth-2 in the comics, being bright and colorful.
  • Alternate History:
    • In "Flash Of Two Worlds", Hunter Zolomon mentions how his father fought in "The War of the Americas". Jesse spends most of her time watching Casablanca with Wally under the impression it's about this war, implying it was their equivalent of World War II.
    • Nora Allen is still alive during Barry's adulthood.
    • Ronnie becomes the dominant pair in the Firestrom matrix and essentially buries Stein within.
    • A number of characters who didn't become metahumans on Earth-1 (Al Rothstein, Eddie Slick, Linda Park, Caitlin Snow, Hunter Zolomon, Dante Ramon, Laurel Lance) were empowered, and some who had powers on Earth-1 don't have them here (Barry Allen, Henry Hewitt, technically note  Shay Lamden). Earth-1 Caitlin is revealed to be a metahuman after Barry's Cosmic Retcon, though whether or not she had them before is ambiguous.
    • Oliver Queen died in the Queen's Gambit shipwreck years ago, leading his father Robert to be stranded on Lian Yu and return to Starling City as The Hood. After he is arrested, Adrian Chase becomes the Hood.
    • Beyonce Knowles is a senator. Have fun figuring out how the dominoes fell there.
    • It is heavily implied that Eddie Thawne is still alive in this world, assuming that he is the "Eddie" written on Barry and Iris' phone contacts.
    • Caitlin Snow has a brother, though he dies offscreen. For that matter, she flunks med school.
    • Harrison Wells has a daughter, Jesse. His wife is also long dead by the time of the Particle Accelerator explosion.
    • Thea Queen was born nine months earlier than in Earth-1. She also died of drug overdose when she was 18, heavily implied because of her depression over Oliver's death.
    • Malcolm Merlyn is not a corrupt businessman and never became Dark Arrow. It is his son, Tommy, who did.
    • Quentin Lance died many years ago, when his children were still teenagers. Also, Sara didn't board the Queen's Gambit and is a mother.
    • Televisions are oriented portrait-style.
  • Alternate Self: Many characters have counterparts on other Earths. Specifically, this universe shares the most characters (posthumous or otherwise) with Earths 1 and X.
    • This universe shares a Harrison Wells with Earths 1, 12, 13, 17, 19, 22, 24, 25, 27, 47, 221, and three unnumbered ones.
    • This universe shares a Bruce Wayne with Earths 1, 9, 21, 38, 66, 89, 99, 203, and an undesignated Earth.
    • This universe shares a Dinah Laurel Lance with Earths 1, 16, 167, 203, X, and an undesignated Earth. However, she only resembles the Earths 1, 16, and X versions. The Earth-203 version instead resembles Elizabeth Kane from Earths 1, 99, and an undesignated universe.
    • This universe shares an Oliver Queen with Earths 1, 16, 167, X, an undesignated Earth. However, he only resembles the Earths 1, 16, and X versions, though the Earth-167 version do resemble the one from the undesignated universe.
    • This universe shares a Francisco Ramon with Earths 1, 19, 22, and X.
    • This universe shares a Barry Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. However, he only resembles the Earth-1 version. Earth-90 Barry Allen resembles Earth-1 Henry Allen and Earth-90 Jay Garrick instead.
    • This universe shares an Iris West-Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. However, she only resembles the Earth-1 version.
    • This universe shares a Thea Queen with Earths 1 and 16, though Earth-167 has someone with the surname Dearden take on the mantle of Speedy.
    • This universe shares a Nora Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. However, she only resembles the Earth-1 version, though they both resemble Joan Williams from Earth-3.
    • This universe shares a Henry Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. It's unclear how he looks like, Earth-1 Henry Allen resembles Earth-3 Jay Garrick and Earth-90 Barry Allen instead.
    • This universe shares a Floyd Lawton with Earths 1, 167,and an undesignated Earth. However, he only resembles the Earth-1 version.
    • This universe shares a Quentin Lance with Earths 1, 16, and X.
    • This universe shares a Sara Lance with Earths 1, 16, and X.
    • This universe shares a Felicity Smoak with Earths 1, 16, and X.
    • This universe shares a Tommy Merlyn with Earths 1 and X.
    • This universe shares a Linda Park with Earths 1 and 90, though she only resembles the Earth-1 version.
    • This universe shares a Henry Hewitt with Earth-1. Earth-9 Billy Wintergreen also resembles them.
    • This universe shares a Moira Queen with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Malcolm Merlyn with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Joseph West with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Caitlin Snow with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Martin Stein with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Damien Dahrk with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Curtis Holt with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Simon Morrison/Adrian Chase with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Rene Ramirez with Earth-1.

    • This universe shares a Patty Spivot with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Nick Anastas with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares an Al Rothstein with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares an Eddie Slick with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares an Adam Fells with Earth-1.
    • This universe shares a Brett Collins with Earth-1.
  • Alternate Universe: The first of many.
  • Ambiguous Situation: After the Crisis, it is currently unknown how many of Earth-2’s inhabitants still exist (or are still similar to their pre-Crisis selves) following the rearrangement of the multiverse creating a new superhero history on that world.
  • Apocalypse Wow: Earth-2 is the first casualty of the Crisis as shown in Arrow's Season 8 premiere, where it gets disintegrated by an antimatter wave.
  • Art Deco: Everything (architecture, interior and graphic designs, fashion) in this Earth looks like a futuristic early-mid 20th century.
  • Atlantis: Not only is it real, but it was never lost. Zoom mentions he has a friend there, presumably Aquaman.
  • Back for the Dead: After years of being unseen, Earth-2 makes a return in Arrow's season 8 premiere as the first casualty of the Crisis.
  • Bus Crash: The Wellses family have been absent for a while when Earth-2 gets destroyed. Barry learns the universe's destruction and assumes that they don't make it.
  • Color Wash: Every scene taking place on Earth-2 while daytime has a golden tint to it, to easily distinguish it from Earth-1. This is subverted in the Starling City side featured in the Arrow Season 8 premiere where it's pretty much an indistinguishable carbon copy with subtle differences, even though a flash back to Laurel's backstory shown in the previous season shows a gray tint in night time.
  • Composite Character:
    • In the comics, Earth-2 is a world dominantly inhabited by superheroes, while Earth-3 is the one inhabited by supervillains. This version appears to combine the two, but it's clear that it has more Earth-3 influence, since "Jay Garrick" as The Flash and Robert Queen as The Arrow are the only acknowledged heroes, and the former is a fraud anyway. Just like Earth-3 it also ends up being the first casualty of the Crisis.
    • It also integrates elements from the FlashPoint timeline, such as the Green Arrow being Robert Queen instead of Oliver, which is inspired by Thomas Wayne being Batman.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: Several, both introduced with one or ultimately became one themselves.
    • This world's Oliver Queen, Adam Fells, Quentin Lance and Thea Queen are already posthumous characters when their counterparts from Earths 1 and X were introduced, while this world's Joe West, Francisco Ramon, Caitlin Snow, Martin Stein (somehow), Clay Parker, Dante Ramon were all ultimately killed shortly or just a few episodes after their respective introductions.
    • Inversions are the Earth-2 versions of Harrison Wells (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart, then eventually also a dead Earth-19 counterpart), Robert Queen (indirectly introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Dinah Laurel Lance (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Ronnie Raymond (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Shay Lamden (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Al Rothstein (killed his own Earth-1 counterpart), Floyd Lawton (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Nora Allen (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Henry Allen (eventually has a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Damien Darhk (whose Earth-1 counterpart has already died twice whereas his fate remains unknown), Moira Queen (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Malcolm Merlyn (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart) and Tommy Merlyn (introduced with dead Earths 1 and X counterparts).
    • Sara Lance and Cisco Ramon are interesting cases. Their main Earth-1 counterparts have been killed twice by the end of 2015 before getting resurrected both times in the same year (Cisco's first via Barry's first Cosmic Retcon, Sara's first via Lazarus Pit, both's second via Barry's second Cosmic Retcon) while Sara and Cisco's respective Earths X and 22 counterparts are posthumous characters by early 2018.
    • The Anti-Monitor destroys Earth-2 in the Season 8 premiere of Arrow. Except for Laurel, nobody survives the destruction and eventual reconstruction of the multiverse.
  • Demoted to Extra: Earth-2 is the very first Alternate Universe introduced when the Arrowverse debuted the concept of The Multiverse. Then Supergirl premiered not long after and was eventually made part of The Multiverse as Earth-38, followed shortly by The Flash (later designated Earth-90) also being integrated, all before Earth-2 even made a proper appearance. Then the fourth annual Crossover, Crisis on Earth-X, introduces the titular Alternate Universe which became the setting of Freedom Fighters: The Ray. Over time, Earth-2 is only ever touched upon again when characters (specifically Team Flash) visit or Harry Wells, Jesse Quick and Black Siren talk about their respective lives. The universe is also the first casualty of the Crisis. After the Crisis, however, this trope is finally averted, as it becomes the setting for Stargirl.
  • Diesel Punk: This Earth's Central City seems to be built around this aesthetic, specifically the Decopunk variation.
  • Epic Fail: Hunter Zolomon was able to fool the entirety of Earth-2 with his superhero alias, despite being a well-known criminal with his face all over the media without even wearing a mask. How? By cutting his hair and not regrowing his beard.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: The Anti-Monitor destroys Earth-2 in the Season 8 premiere of Arrow, leaving Dinah Laurel Lance, Shay Lamden, and Linda Park as the only survivors, as Laurel is taken by Earth-1 Oliver and Diggle back to their universe while Shay and Linda have been taking refuge there since 2015. The Earth-2 that appeared is a different Earth altogether, while elements from this Earth were sent to Earth-Prime.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: Most of the characters here are Evil Counterparts to their Earth-1 counterparts, as was the case with Al Rothstein, Linda Park, Cap. Singh, Caitlin Snow, Ronnie Raymond, Cisco and Dante Ramon, and Laurel Lance (at least at first), while Felicity Smoak is said to be ruthless. The Harrison Wells of this Earth is more Anti Heroic than his (real) counterpart than outright evil, though.
  • Evil Me Scares Me: The Earth-1 versions of Linda Park, Caitlin Snow, and Cisco Ramon are pretty unsettled to discover criminal versions of themselves from an Alternate Universe.
  • Expendable Alternate Universe:
    • Deconstructed in that Zoom's army have this view towards the Earth-1 universe, which makes them remorseless about killing the Flash, and even their alternate selves, to get home.
    • And while the characters on Earth-1 certainly don't consider Earth-2 to be this, the writers seem to treat Earth-2 this way to some extent considering the number of counterparts killed off. The Earth-2 versions of Joe, Cisco, Ronnie, Stein, and Caitlin are all offed (mostly by Zoom) in a pretty short period of time.
    • Earth-2 is the first casualty of the Crisis.
  • Foil: Most characters from this world tend to be Shadow Archetypes, if not an outright Evil Doppelgänger, to their respective Earth-1 counterparts, as well as the other way around.
  • For Want of a Nail:
    • Because Nora did not get murdered by Eobard, Henry was never imprisoned. As a result, Barry did not become adopted by Joe because his parents are still around, although the Allen and West families are close to each other, with Barry marrying Iris cementing this.
    • Oliver died during the sinking of the Queen's Gambit, while Robert survived. Robert ended up being the one who experienced Oliver's tribulations in Lian Yu and returned to Starling City as the Hood. It's also implied that this caused Thea's death of drug overdose as well as Tommy becoming the Dark Arrow.
    • Sara did not board the Queen's Gambit and apparently never had a tryst with Oliver. As a result, she has a healthy relationship with Laurel, who helps her raise her child.
  • Hero of Another Story: Earth-2 is the fifth most developed part of The Multiverse within the Arrowverse after Earths 1, 38, 90, and X. This universe also produced four major characters (Harry Wells, Dinah Laurel Lance, Jesse Quick and Hunter Zolomon / Black Flash), one recurring (Shay Lamden), and a number of characters with potential to be either one (Linda Park, Solovar, Barry Allen, Iris West-Allen, Floyd Lawton, etc.) despite not having a show set on it like the four universes mentioned.
  • In-Series Nickname: To avoid the One Steve Limit below. For instance, the Harrison Wells from this world is called Harry by the characters from Earth-1.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • Earth-2 seems very different than Earth-1. Despite this, they have people with the exact same names and faces as those in Earth-1.
    • Harrison Wells' particle accelerator still caused a number of people to become metahumans (of course, here it was the real Wells, the empowering event was an actual accident, and the incident was nowhere near as destructive as on Earth-1).
    • Ronnie Raymond and Martin Stein still fused into a version of Firestorm.
    • CCPD still has a Great Detective West (read: Iris). For the matter, Barry is still the department's premiere forensic scientist.
    • Cisco Ramon, Caitlin Snow and Ronnie Raymond still found themselves working for the evil speedster, except in this Earth they did it willingly.
    • Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow are still working with a speedster.
    • Despite the different context, Floyd Lawton still ends up working with guns and earning himself the moniker "Deadshot" because of it.
    • Despite the absence of Leonard Snart and Mick Rory (the former is even implied to be the City Mayor), an Evil Duo using ice and fire are still terrorizing Central City.
    • A parental figure of Barry still dies. For the matter, one of Iris' parents still dies, assuming that Earth-2 Francine West didn't suffer the same fate as her Earth-1 counterpart.
    • Hunter Zolomon still finds himself with a Missing Mom and being sent to foster care as a result. Of course, this is assuming that he is telling the truth regarding his Earth-1 counterpart.
    • Caitlin Snow and Ronnie Raymond are still married and she still ends up as a widow, at least for a while.
    • Barring the Cosmic Retcon, Cisco is still killed by the evil speedster. In the exact same manner, no less.
    • Harrison Wells' wife still died on this earth although unlike her Earth-1 counterpart, her death wasn't caused by an evil speedster as far as we kno).
    • Caitlin Snow was still raised by an Evil Matriarch, and their fallout is caused by the death of a male family member.
    • An evil speedster ends up impersonating someone outside of their own world. On Earth-1, Eobard Thawne came from the future and ended up killing and replacing Dr. Harrison Wells. Here, Hunter Zolomon travels to Earth-3, kidnaps Jay Garrick, and uses the latter's identity to pose as a hero.
    • A supervillain named the Mirror Master exists.
    • Oliver Queen and Dinah Laurel Lance still became a couple, and one of them still ended up dying.
    • Damien Darhk is still a notorious criminal.
    • Quentin Lance still ended up dying.
  • Killed Offscreen: When Earth-2 is destroyed, only Moira Queen, Tommy Merlyn, Dinah Drake and Rene Ramirez are shown disintegrating.
  • Left-Handed Mirror: A case of Informed Ability. Black Siren mentions that all doppelgangers are this, but herself, Killer Frost, and Reverb are all cross-dominants than outright southpaws.
  • Mass Super-Empowering Event: The metahumans got their powers from Earth-2 Dr. Wells' Particle Accelerator, which was much more low key than it's Earth-1 counterpart, as it exploded underground rather than above. (with the possible exception of Zoom, who only mentions his own Freak Lab Accident). Despite that, presuming he didn't gather them from across the world, Zoom has an army of metahumans at his disposal.
  • Mirror Universe: Despite being based on comic book Earth-2 (the Zeerust aesthetic and Golden Age equivalents), it also has more than a few elements borrowed from Earth-3, namely evil counterparts to good people and vice-versa. Zoom's gang in particular feels like a scaled-down version of the Crime Syndicate of America (Earth-3's Evil Counterpart to the Justice League) complete with counterparts to Linda (Dr. Light), Caitlin (Killer Frost), Ronnie (Deathstorm), Cisco (Reverb), and Laurel (Black Siren).
  • Monster of the Week: Majority of the metahumans during The Flash Season 2. The most notable exceptions are Zoom and Killer Frost.
  • One Steve Limit: They share the names of their Earth-1 counterparts.
  • Ret-Gone: Destroyed during the Crisis and never reconstituted again. The only survivor of the carnage is Dinah Laurel Lance. Its designation is given to the setting of Stargirl.
  • Retro Universe: This world uses both modern-day and futuristic apps, but everyone's clothing are ranges from the 1920s up to the 1950s. However, the outfits of Zoom's gang suggest that it's only Central City who chooses to live with this aesthetic, which the final season of Arrow more or less confirms.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: Some of them aren't/weren't enemies of The Flash in canon.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Earth-2 was the most heavily focused Earth outside of Earth-38, with a great deal of time spent there and by far the most number of characters introduced. It also ends up as the first casualty of the Crisis when it returns in Arrow Season 8.
  • Schizo Tech: Central City in particular has the fashion and aesthetics of the early-mid 20th century. But make no mistake, they are very technologically advanced.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Majority of the males are dressed in a suit.
  • Supervillain Lair: Zoom's is located on a mountain past a forest.
  • Uniqueness Decay: Back then, the existence of another Earth was a huge deal in the Arrowverse. Nowadays, there are dozens of them, and new ones keep constantly popping up.
  • Walking Spoiler: Their entire existence if you haven't seen Season One of The Flash. Also it's destruction if you haven't seen the Arrow final season premiere.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Most of the meta-humans went Ax-Crazy with their powers, causing chaos and destruction.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Laurel, Shay, and Linda have this when Earth-2 gets destroyed by the Anti-Monitor. Though it comes back after the Crisis, it's unknown if it is the same Earth-2 as before.
  • Zeerust: Deliberately invoked. Although the year is the same as on "our" Earth, the buildings and vehicles are Art Deco 1920s/1930s in appearance, most of the civilian fashions (especially women) look to be from the 1940s/1950s, and Hunter Zolomon's "Jay Garrick" costume looks like a 1930s/1940s pulp adventurer's outfit with the leather jacket and a helmet design (stated to have originally been his father's combat helmet) taken out of American Army service prior to World War II. These trend seems to be a Central City thing, however, as notorious criminals such as Deathstorm, Killer Frost and Reverb as well as the entire Starling City residents are shown with modern clothing.

Species: Metahuman

Known Aliases: Dr. Light

Played By: Malese Jow

Appearances: The Flash

A metahuman that can draw power from starlight. She is the Earth-2 counterpart of Linda Park.

see the Arrowverse: Central City Citizens page for Earth-1 Linda
see the Arrowverse: Earth-90 page for more info on the Earth-90 character who bears her name

  • Adaptational Early Appearance: The female Dr. Light debuted in Crisis on Infinite Earths. This version debuted three years before the Arrowverse adaptation of the event. Complicating matters further, Kimiyo Hoshi herself shows up as Doctor Light after the Crisis.
  • Adaptational Nationality: As a result of being a Composite Character, she's now of Korean descent instead of Japanese.
  • Adaptational Villainy: She is, though an Anti-Villain who does not kill, still a criminal. There are two Doctors Light in the comics, and the one this version is based on is a hero.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's quite rigid.
  • Anti-Villain: All she wants is to be free of Zoom. Even before he brought her to Earth-1, she'd never killed anyone, and is horrified when she accidentally does so.
  • Badass in Distress: She was briefly imprisoned on S.T.A.R. Labs on Earth-1 until she escapes Team Flash.
  • Badass Longcoat: She has a labcoat styled one as part of her costume. During her climatic fight with Barry, she wears a more traditional one.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Is the Earth-2 doppelgänger of Linda Park, a girl who was lovely enough to divert Barry's attentions from Iris for a little while.
  • Bus Crash: While she avoided the destruction of Earth-2 due to not being there, she did not survive the destruction of the multiverse.
  • Composite Character: She has the costume and abilities of Kimiyo Hoshi, but her civilian identity is Linda Park, leading to quite a shock for Barry when he first confronts her. She's also a villain like the original Doctor Light. And then, the Kimiyo Hoshi herself shows up as Doctor Light in Season 6.
  • Cool Helmet: Part of her costume. Removing it makes a Dramatic Unmask for The Reveal she's Linda Park's Alternate Self, the first for any prominent Arrowverse character.
  • Dark Action Girl: Zig-Zagged. She doesn't hesitate to cause chaos, but she usually has a strong Thou Shall Not Kill code.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She's only a thief who had never killed anyone before Zoom got to her, and is horrified when she does it accidentally.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: With Earth-2 destroyed by the Anti-Monitor, she becomes one of its few survivors along with Dinah Laurel Lance / Black Canary and Shay Lamden / King Shark.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: Downplayed. She's more of a desperate Anti-Villain than outright evil and views her attempted Kill and Replace of Earth-1 Linda as a Shoot the Dog.
  • Glass Cannon: Her stats are slightly higher than Killer Frost's. Like her, Dr. Light's powers manifest in a fast rate, enabling her to perform multiple and continuous attacks, and they all hit their targets quickly. Unlike her, however, she has better rate at hitting speedster opponents, and her Hard Light causes more damage to her targets. She can also create blinding lights for defensive purposes, and is more durable than her note  physically.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Light's fear of Zoom is apparently strong enough to overwhelm her aversion to killing people. She doesn't go after the Flash as ordered, but she is willing to Kill and Replace Earth-1's Linda to get away from Zoom.
  • Hard Light: Her powers allow her to create hard light and laser constructs.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: The chaos she causes on Earth-1 and her Kill and Replace attempt on her counterpart are fueled by her desperation to escape from Zoom's clutches.
  • Invisibility: She can do it with light.
  • Invisible Streaker: It isn't really brought up, but she leaves her clothes behind in her escape. Conveniently leaving them for Earth-1 Linda to play her.
  • Ironic Name: For a woman named "Light", her power causes (temporary) blindness.
  • Kill and Replace: Attempts this on her Earth-1 counterpart in order to try and hide from Zoom.
  • Killing Your Alternate Self: Attempted (see above), but was luckily stopped before she could succeed.
  • Lifesaving Misfortune: Zoom bringing her out from her hometown and her inability to come back to Earth-2 ends up saving her life when Earth-2 gets disintegrated by antimatter.
  • Light 'em Up: She draws power from starlight. She can create blinding flashes and make lasers strong enough to cut through bank walls.
  • Light Is Not Good: Literally. Though she's more of a desperate Anti-Villain than outright evil.
  • Meaningful Name: Aside from her obvious light-based powers, she is the Token Good Teammate of Zoom and his associates.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She's clearly horrified when she accidentally kills a man.
  • Noble Demon: She's a thief but she does not kill her victims, and is visibly upset over her Accidental Murder of her Earth-1 counterpart's boss.
  • Power Palms: How she channels her powers. Draws energy from starlight, directs it as a beam attack through her palm. Sometimes as a poorly explained area attack.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: The Doctor Light that she is based on is a hero, but the original villainous Doctor Light is a Teen Titans villain.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: She makes every effort to just skip town and put as much distance as possible between her and Zoom rather than kill the Flash as ordered.
  • Shoot the Dog: How she views her Kill and Replace attempt on her Earth-1 counterpart, as she views it necessary to escape from Zoom's clutches.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: She personally wants to avoid killing. Unfortunately, Zoom's threat is so bad that it pushes her to consider to Kill and Replace her Earth-1 counterpart just to escape his clutches.
  • Token Good Teammate: The most moral of Zoom and his associates.
  • Trapped in Another World: Is taking refuge at Earth-1 after being defeated by Barry. Due to this, she dodged a bullet.
  • Uncertain Doom: Her current status is unknown after the merging of most Earths and the creation of the new multiverse.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: While the team makes a brief effort to find her after she escapes, once they've developed an alternative plan to lure Zoom, they seem to forget all about Doctor Light.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Earth-2 was destroyed by the Anti-Monitor while she's taking refuge in Earth-1.

Appearances: The Flash

A metahuman with fire powers who, along with his wife and literal partner-in-crime Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost, works for Zoom. He is the Earth-2 counterpart of the (apparently) late Ronnie Raymond.

see the Arrowverse: Firestorm page for Earth-1 Ronnie and Firestorm

    Martin Stein 

Martin Stein

Species: Metahuman

A metahuman that was once half of Deathstorm, though Ronnie has permanently locked him away. He is the Earth-2 counterpart of Prof. Martin Stein.

see the Arrowverse: Firestorm page for Earth-1 Martin

  • Adaptational Heroism: Usually, the Martin Stein Deathstorm is a madman possessing a corpse; here, he is evidently a victim kept suppressed by Ronnie.
  • And I Must Scream: Ronnie permanently keeps him locked away in his head, and he doesn't talk anymore. Fortunately for him, Deathstorm's demise means he is released.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: To the main (Earth-1) Martin Stein, though it's unlikely that he knows about him. The Earth-1 Stein himself dies nearly two years later.
  • Despair Event Horizon: He's been trapped inside Ronnie for so long that he lost all hope. Deathstorm's death at least frees him.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's locked inside the mind and body of a psychopath for years. Even after they die, he didn't even leave a corpse for his family to mourn (if he had a family at all).
  • The Ghost: He is present, but since Ronnie locked him away, he is never seen or heard.
  • No Body Left Behind: Ronnie traps him in his head. And with Deathstorm's death, he dies along with Ronnie but without leaving a corpse.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: He is essentially (and literally) just a power source for Ronnie.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: We don't actually know if he's evil or not, but nonetheless, Ronnie traps him in his mind so he can gain full access to the Firestorm matrix's power.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: All we learned was that he was kept locked away in Ronnie's mind before dying.

Harry Wells' wife

Species: Human

The late wife of Harry Wells and Jesse's late mother.


  • The Ghost: No picture of her is shown, nor did she appear in a flashback, leaving it ambiguous if she is Tess Morgan's, Traci Brand's or Renee Adler's Alternate Self.
  • The Lost Lenore: Harry became a bad tempered, rude man after losing her.
  • Missing Mom: She died when Jesse was really young.
  • No Name Given: Her name is never mentioned, which is another reason why it's uncertain if she is Tess Morgan's Alternate Self.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Like in Earth-1, Harrison Wells' wife sees her husband as a star on the sky, which implies S.T.A.R. Labs has the same origin of its Earth-1 counterpart's name.

  • Black and Nerdy: He's a brilliant scientist.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Enforced and Invoked by The Multiverse setting of the show.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Invoked and Played for Laughs. In the main universe and the comic continuity, he is/was one of the best marksman and gunslinger. Here, he's... not.
  • Alternate Self: He holds the honor of being the first for any Arrow character, as back when The Multiverse concept is introduced, only ones for The Flash characters have appeared.

  • Determinator: He continues to try being a good detective in spite of his Butt-Monkey status.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Earth-2 Floyd Lawton hates being called Deadshot.

  • Fearless Fool: He rushes into combat without any hesitation despite being aware of his extremely poor marksmanship.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Heavily implied since he sucks at firearms while Iris is a great shot.
  • Informed Attribute: While he definitely sucks with firearms, his dodging skills imply his proficiency in melee or/and unarmed combat. Since he persists on using firearms, we'll never know.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Competence aside, he still works with guns just like his Earth-1 counterpart.
  • In-Universe Nickname: "Deadshot" like his Earth-1 Counterpart.
  • Ironic Nickname: He gets called "Deadshot" as mockery for his inability to hit anything with a gun.

    Mayor Snart 

Mayor Snart

Species: Human

The Earth-2 counterpart of either Leonard, Lisa or Lewis Snart who is the current mayor of Central City.


  • Adaptational Heroism: Invoked due to being the heroic counterpart of either Captain Cold, Golden Glider, or their father, all of whom are villains in the comics and in the Arrowverse.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Since they're only referred to by their last name, and no pronouns are used, it's unclear which Snart is Central City's mayor.

  • Break the Cutie: She has a dead father and an older sister who lost her way for much of her life.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: Zig-Zagged. The main Earth-1 Sara actually died in 2014 but was resurrected the following year, whereas this version is implied to be alive and well. At least she was before Earth-2 is disintegrated.
  • The Ghost: She doesn't appear on-screen, her sister just likes talking about her pregnancy.
  • Happily Married: Earth-2 Laurel mentions her having a family of her own.
  • Killed Offscreen: When the antimatter wave hits Earth-2, she is not shown escaping its destruction. Laurel naturally assumes that she has been killed.

see the Arrowverse: Malcolm Merlyn page for Earth-1 Malcolm Merlyn

  • Ambiguous Situation: Word of God is that Earth-1 Malcolm's birth name is Arthur King. It's unclear if that is the real name of this version or if he changed it like his Earth-1 counterpart.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: Inverted. He's the still living counterpart to Earth-1 Malcolm Merlyn, who had performed a Heroic Sacrifice in Season 5.
  • Good Counterpart: This version never became the villainous Dark Archer, with that honor going to his son, Tommy.
  • Nice Guy: Oliver is quite surprised to actually meet a version of him that's not a treacherous jackass.
  • Red Herring: In the exact opposite scenario to his Earth-1 counterpart, he's not actually the Dark Archer, but rather Tommy is. Oliver immediately assumes it's Malcolm until he's proven otherwise.

  • Broken Ace: This Tommy is the one with Survivor's Guilt over outliving both Oliver and Thea. He tries to hold it in, but underneath he's thoroughly broken.
  • Composite Character: This version of Tommy was the one who became the Dark Archer rather than his father, making him one to Merlyn the Dark Archer and the villainous Tommy Merlyn of New 52.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: Inverted. He's still living unlike his Earth-1 and Earth-X counterparts, at least until he gets killed along with the rest of his Earth. Earth-1 Tommy is then ultimately revived when Oliver recreates the multiverse, so he could be a dead counterpart of him.
  • Driven to Villainy: His step-sister's death causes him to snap, vowing to destroy every single person responsible for it.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: Played with. He's the Dark Archer on Earth-2, but he's not inherently evil, just broken. Oliver is quite quick to forgive him.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • On Earth-2, a Merlyn still ended up becoming the Dark Archer, only it was the son rather than the father.
    • On Earth-X, he's also a hooded masked Badass Normal.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: His step-sister's death via drug overdose is enough for him to snap and vow on destroying the entire town it's being produced in.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: Of the three known Tommy Merlyns in The Multiverse, he's the in-between one due being a misguided Knight Templar Big Brother. The late Earth-1 Tommy was a Nice Guy, while the late Earth-X version was the mean one being a Nazi supervillain.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Colin Donnell leaving Chicago Med was what finally freed up his schedule to make a return for Season 8 of Arrow.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: He ends up getting disintegrated along with the rest of Earth-2 by an antimatter wave in front of Oliver's eyes.
  • Serial Spouse: He's been married at least twice.

Gorilla City

    Solovar 

Solovar

Species: Meta-Gorilla

Played By: Keith David

Appearances: The Flash

The ruler of Gorilla City, who believes humans are dangerous to his people.


  • Adaptational Badass: As opposed to previous incarnations of Solovar who are either defeated by Grodd or are forced to rely upon the help of The Flash or other heroes to help him take down Grodd, this incarnation of Solovar is strong enough to overpower Grodd all on his own and Grodd himself even admits that he's unable to defeat Solovar in a fair fight.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: This Solovar is much less scientifically brilliant than his comic counterpart, relying on a spear and shield rather than Frickin' Laser Beams.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The comic Solovar was a Reasonable Authority Figure, while this one is a brutal warmonger. Although it's revealed that he never wanted war in the first place, he's still much more brutal and paranoid than his comic counterpart.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: His fur is grey in the comics, but white here, to better distinguish him from Grodd.
  • Advertised Extra: Heavily hyped in promotions, but was greatly underused in the two-part arc due to the show's limited budget on featuring CGI gorillas.
  • Ambiguously Evil: It's never established if he's just violently paranoid over humans or if he's just as evil as Grodd says.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: His defeat at Barry's hands causes him to be removed as leader, but him whopping Grodd's ass quickly got him reinstated.
  • Back from the Dead: He is implied to have revived after the Crisis and be relocated to Earth-Prime.
  • Bad Boss: According to Grodd, he is a tyrant. While we don't see much of him, he does slap Grodd around for talking back to him.
  • Badass Baritone: He's voiced by Keith David, so it's to be expected. ]
  • Bus Crash: He dies when an antimatter wave destroys Earth-2. However, he is implied to be in Earth-Prime now.
  • Celebrity Paradox: The Disney Animated Canon is acknowledged to exist on the Arrowverse. His voice actor was on both Hercules and The Princess and the Frog, playing the villain on the latter film.
  • Death by Adaptation: His comics version did die in Crisis on Infinite Earths, but this version dies before that storyline's adaptation.
  • Defeat Means Respect: Has no problems helping Team Flash deal with Grodd despite Barry kicking his ass in the previous episode. This is justified because of two things; the first is the Might Makes Right mentality that the Gorilla City residents display, the second is Solovar just hates Grodd that much for usurping him.
  • Fights Like a Normal: For a given value of normal. He possesses psychic powers similar to Grodd's, but doesn't use them in his fight with Barry, preferring brute force.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's freakishly fast for his size, and is capable of performing parkour that would make the Arrow characters proud.
  • Noble Demon: After defeating Grodd, he withdraws the Gorilla army from Earth-1 and even spares Grodd on Barry's insistence.
  • Psychic Powers: Like Grodd's. It is unknown if this is standard for the gorillas, or if, like in the comics, it is unique to Grodd and the royal family.
  • Red Herring: He isn't the one who wants to invade Central City, Grodd is.
  • Shockwave Stomp: Strong enough to engulf an entire arena.
