Earth-X

     In General 
Harry Wells: There's a fifty-third Earth and it's called Earth-X. It doesn't have a designation because it's a place so awful, so horrific, no sane person ever traveled there. Basically our Earth, same history, same timeline, but with one crucial and critical difference.
Martin Stein: Let me hypothesize: The Nazis developed the atomic bomb before the United States did and were more than happy to use it.
Harry Wells: Yes, the Nazis won the war. And New York, Paris, London, Moscow, all obliterated. The SS set up outposts not only all throughout Europe, but the Americas. And Hitler continued his brutal reign, aided by presidents and prime ministers sympathetic to him, until his death in 1994.

The 53rd Earth of The Multiverse and most hostile one of them all — the one where the Nazis actually won World War II.


  • Adapted Out: Overman evidently doesn't exist in this universe (or if he did, never made it to Earth-X). Which is noteworthy, considering a large number of Supergirl's supporting cast also exist on this world, and Kara even had an adopted family in the Danvers' much like her Earth-38 counterpart.
  • Alternate History: The Nazis won WWII on this version of Earth due to developing the atom bomb first and using it on major cities in each of their enemy nations.
  • Alternate Self: Plenty.
    • This universe shares the most characters (posthumous or otherwise) with Earths 1, 2 and 38, specifically:
      • With Earth-1: Oliver Queen, Dinah Laurel Lance, Tommy Merlyn, Quentin Lance, Sara Lance, Felicity Smoak, Leonard Snart, Mick Rory, Cisco Ramon, and Ray Terrill.
      • With Earth-2: Oliver Queen, Dinah Laurel Lance, Quentin Lance, and Cisco Ramon.
      • With Earth-38: Kara Zor-El, Alex Danvers, Winslow Schott, Jr., John Corben, Red Tornado, and James Olsen.
    • This universe shares a Cisco Ramon with Earths 1, 2, and 22.
  • Crapsack World: Earth-X is considered such a terrible place that it's practically unlisted in the Multiverse.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: While they have the most counterparts on both Earths 1, 2, and 38, they also have the most dead counterparts (posthumous or otherwise).
    • This world's Oliver Queen, Kara Zor-El, James Olsen, and Ray Terrill were ultimately this for their Earths 1 and 38 counterparts, while this world's Sara Lancenote , Alex Danvers, and Mick Rory are posthumous characters.
    • Inversions are the Earth-X versions of Leonard Snart (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Dinah Laurel Lance (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Quentin Lance (introduced with a dead Earth-2 counterpart and possibly also outlived his Earth-1 counterpart), John Corben (introduced with a dead Earth-38 counterpart), Red Tornado (introduced with a dead/destroyed Earth-38 counterpart), and Cisco Ramon (introduced with dead Earths 2 and 22 counterpartsnote ). The Earth-X versions of Oliver Queen (introduced with a dead Earth-2 counterpartnote ) and Tommy Merlyn (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart) also count, though they both ultimately die during the war against the heroes.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: Many of the heroes we all know are evil here and they work for the Nazi Regime.
  • Evil Me Scares Me: The heroes of Earth-1 are pretty unsettled to discover Nazi versions of themselves from an Alternate Universe.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • When Barry first visited Earth-38 he off-handedly mentioned the idea of a world where the Nazis won World War Two to James, to help him understand the concept of the multiverse. Little did he know...
    • Gypsy told Team Flash that Earth-19's law against interdimensional travel was a result of being invaded by a more hostile Earth. Earth-X attempts the same, interrupting Barry and Iris's wedding.
  • Hate Sink: In-universe, Earth-X doesn't have a single ally in The Multiverse except for Eobard Thawne, who mostly joined them for fun, and everyone else despises it. Of course, being Nazis, they likely don't give a damn about how much they're hated.
  • Invaded States of America: And every part of the world.
  • The Scottish Trope: People who know about their existence in The Multiverse (such as Harry Wells) refuse to talk about them.

The Freedom Fighters

     In General 

     Ray Terrill / The Ray I (Earth-X) 

Raymond "Ray" Terrill / The Ray

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_ray_earth_x_unmasked.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_ray_earth_x.png

Species: Enhanced Human

Known Aliases: The Ray

Played By: Russell Tovey

Appearances: Freedom Fighters: The Ray

A man investigating a secret project of government officials attempting to use light as a weapon of mass destruction, only to get caught. The head of the project exposed Ray to a "genetic light bomb", hoping to kill him, but instead it gave him light-based powers. Realizing he could actually stop crime instead of just report about it, Ray joined the Freedom Fighters to fight crime and oppression.

The Ray quickly established himself as one of Earth-X's most powerful Freedom Fighters. Unfortunately, he was fatally wounded by Blitzkrieg of the New Reichsmen; Vibe teleported him to Earth-1, where he gave his powers and the neuro-cortex of Red Tornado to his doppelgänger before dying.


  • Almost Dead Guy: Fatally wounded, he has just enough time to transfer his powers to Ray Terrill of Earth-1 after being teleported there.
  • Backup Twin: Transferred his powers to his Earth-1 counterpart.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: For Earth-1 Ray at the start of the series.
  • Decoy Protagonist: The press release made it sound like he was the main protagonist of the show. In truth, he gets fatally wounded, and he transfers his powers to his Earth-1 counterpart, who is the true protagonist.
  • Plot-Triggering Death: His death directly gets his Earth-1 counterpart involved in the conflicts on Earth-X.
  • Real Name as an Alias: His real given name is "Ray" and his codename is "The Ray".
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Only appeared for a handful of minutes, but his death directly led to the main Ray Terrill to show up and be involved in the war.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Dies after the first fight with the Reichsmen to make way for his Earth-1 version as the true protagonist of the animated series.

     Ray Terrill / The Ray II (Earth-1) 

Raymond "Ray" Terrill / The Ray

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arrowverse_the_ray_a.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arrowverse_the_ray_b.png

Species: Enhanced Human

Known Aliases: The Ray

Played By: Russell Tovey

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note  | Freedom Fighters: The Ray

The Ray's counterpart from Earth-1. He lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and had an older brother named Michael who fought in the War Against Terror until he was killed in Afghanistan. As his parents' only son left, he still lived at home with them and kept his homosexuality a secret from them, only trusting his friend John with it. Ray gained light-based powers from his dying doppelgänger and used them to stop crime in his hometown, honing his skills, until he eventually found his way to Earth-X, where he decided to stay.


  • Backup Twin: His dying Earth-X counterpart gave him his powers, and he soon took the man's place on the Nazi-governed Earth-X.
  • Badass Gay: He's the first LBGT Superhero of the Arrowverse to headline his own show, not counting Sara Lance (who is bisexual and the leader of the Legends of Tomorrow but part of an ensemble) or John Constantine (an anti-hero whose bisexuality from the comics wasn't made explicit in the Arrowverse until 2018).
  • Battle Couple: With Citizen Cold.
  • Celebrity Paradox:
    • Doctor Who has been referenced on the Arrowverse before. Ray's actor had a guest role as Alonso Frame during the Tenth Doctor era, who also happened to be gay.
    • Quantico was mentioned on Supergirl during its second season. Ray's actor is a series regular.
  • Cool Helmet: Dons a golden helm as part of his costume.
  • Contrived Coincidence: The Earth-X Ray just happened to find his Earth-1 counterpart to give his powers to.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Though natively from Earth-1, Ray decided to stay on Earth-X to be with Citizen Cold and help continue the revolution against the New Reichsmen.
  • Flight: Part of his power set and can fly fast enough to keep up with Barry Allen.
  • Glass Cannon: He has powerful attacks, but is vulnerable to bullets. He doesn't even has accelerated healing to make up for it.
  • Hero of Another Story: Main character of his own series set in a different part of the Arrowverse multiverse.
  • I Choose to Stay: He willingly stayed on an Alternate Universe to fight the oppressors there in place of his late Alternate Self.
  • Legacy Character: Takes his Earth-X counterpart's mantle after his death in true Backup Twin fashion.
  • Light 'em Up: Has light-based powers.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In his first episode in the Arrowverse, no time is wasted in getting well-built Russell Tovey shirtless and sharing a makeout session with Wentworth Miller.
  • One Steve Limit: The second Ray to appear in the Arrowverse, and both of them will be teaming up!
  • Real Name as an Alias: His real given name is "Ray" and his codename is "The Ray".
  • Related in the Adaptation: Comics Ray had no affiliation with Leonard Snart, let alone being lovers with him.
  • Straight Gay: Much less flamboyant than his boyfriend.
  • Superior Successor: He seems to be much more powerful than his Earth-X counterpart, as he straight-up overpowers Overgirl in a Beam-O-War.
  • Walking Spoiler: There are actually two Rays. The original is a native from Earth-X who traveled to Earth-1 while he was dying and gave his powers to his Earth-1 Doppelgänger.

     Leo Snart / Citizen Cold 

Leonard "Leo" Snart / Citizen Cold

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37_1.jpg
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/33_33.jpg

Species: Human

Known Aliases: Citizen Cold

Played By: Wentworth Miller

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note  | Legends of Tomorrow | The Flash

The Earth-X Alternate Self of the late Leonard Snart, a heroic version of his counterpart.

see the Arrowverse: Leonard Snart page for his Earth-1 counterpart
see the Arrowverse: Earth-90 page for more info on Leonard Wynters, the Earth-90 character who bears his first name and comicbook connections

  • Adaptational Heroism: In the comics, Citizen Cold is the "hero" of the Flashpoint timeline, but he's little more than a glorified thug whom the police openly hate, but can't arrest because of how much the public loves him. Here, he's a genuine hero.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: The first explicitly homosexual iteration of Captain Cold in any mediumnote 
  • Alliterative Name: Citizen Cold.
  • Alternate Self: To Earth-1 Leonard Snart.
  • Backup Twin: Takes the place of the late Earth-1 Leonard Snart.
  • Badass Gay: He and Ray are an item and like Ray, he's a badass Freedom Fighter opposing the Reich.
  • Battle Couple: With the Ray.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He makes his entrance by saving the captured heroes from being executed by freezing the Nazis' guns.
  • Camp Gay: Though more subdued, he does comment on the heroes' outfits during his Establishing Character Moment and speaks with camp mannerisms.
  • Clock King: Even more than his Earth-1 counterpart.
  • Composite Character: His character combines Citizen Cold from the Flashpoint timeline of Earth-1 with any number of alternate universe heroic versions of Captain Cold.
  • The Confidant: Tries to be this for the other heroes. Unlike his Earth-1 counterpart, Leo uses his skills at understanding other people to try to help them work through their issues, albeit with mixed success possibly due to his use of a puppet of Professor Stein during counseling sessions.
  • Cool Shades: Unlike his Earth-1 counterpart, who wears goggles, this one wears a visor similar to the original comic book version.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: Inverted, since Earth-1 Snart died nearly two years before his debut.
  • Defrosting the Ice Queen: Not him, but he tries to do this for Oliver and Sara.
  • Doppelgänger Gets Same Sentiment: He tries to hit it off with Earth-1 Mick Rory, the doppelganger of his late Earth-X counterpart, Mickey Rory. However since Leo is an unrelenting do-gooder hero, while Mick is a proud crook makes it hard for the two to get along. Leo sees Mick as a Replacement Goldfish to his late partner Mickey, trying to help him out of his alcoholism and make him a better person, but this only seeks to infuriate Mick.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: The minute he and John Constantine meet, the latter immediately starts hitting on Leo. At that point in time, Constantine had no clue that he was gay. Though that he is does ultimately make this an enforced trope.
  • Foil: On top of being Earth-1 Snart's Good Twin, there's also some more subtle differences in their personality. Earth-1 Snart is all about prioritizing the mission and was (initially) not above sacrificing his own henchman if they became trouble. Earth-X Snart values human lives above the mission, even those of complete strangers he's never met before. There is one scene in particular which really show off how different they are; Barry quotes Earth-1 Snart's Despite the Plan speech, only for Leo Snart to declare that was "terrible advice".
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: He counted the exact number of deaths on the rebels side that he was charged with looking after and feels the weight of each of their deaths.
  • Freeze Ray: Brandishes the same Cold Gun as his Earth-1 self.
  • Good Twin: While Earth-1 Snart did reform, he started off as a criminal and for the most was still a Lovable Rogue. This Snart was a hero from the beginning and is far nicer.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Allies with the other Arrowverse heroes during Crisis on Earth-X, then tags along with the Legends for a while after the events of the crossover. He also assists Team Flash to help watching over a benevolent yet dangerous metahuman to send him to a place safe from The Thinker.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: He was a very close friend with the late Mickey Rory prior to the latter's death.
  • I Choose to Stay: Decides to remain on Earth-1 for the time being, but promises to return to Earth-X and Ray.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Does not appear in the Arrowverse until the sixth year during the fourth Crossover.
  • Innocently Insensitive: His Stein puppet isn't an attempt to mock the Legends, just a really disrespectful way of helping cope as Amaya points out. To his credit, he drops it once he talks to Jax (the one most affected by Stein's loss).
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • Character Alignments aside, this version of Snart is still an ice-themed individual with a "Cold" in his Alliterative Code Name like his Earth-1 counterpart, is equipped with the same weapon, and wears practically the same outfit. And his nickname is still Leo.
    • He and the Mick Rory of this universe are still Heterosexual Life-Partners.
  • Kill It with Ice: He may be a hero, but he still fights by freezing his enemies.
  • Long Bus Trip: After his departure, he is unlikely to return since Wentworth Miller announced he would leave the Arrowverse for good.
  • Movie Superheroes Wear Black: Wears a mostly black version of his Earth-1 counterpart's dark blue parka.
  • Mythology Gag: The visor he wears is very close to what Cold wears in the comics, in contrast to the goggles of his Earth-1 counterpart.
  • Nice Guy: In contrast to his Earth-1 counterpart, who only showed moments of his personable side, this Leonard Snart is openly friendly, sensitive, and cares about the well-being of strangers.
  • Pungeon Master: At times.
    • In his debut, he explains that the reason he waited until he was Just in Time to pull a Big Damn Heroes in his introduction is that he couldn't resist the pun on how he hates "fire" after Lance said "Ready, aim."
    • While telling Barry not to bottle up his grief, he tells him "there's no outrunning grief" before apologizing for the pun that slipped out.
  • Related in the Adaptation: No version of Snart has ever had any affiliation with Ray or the Freedom Fighters in the comics.
  • Shipper on Deck: Notices that Ava and Sara are flirting, and thinks they should be together.
  • Walking Spoiler: His appearance comes as a bit of a surprise given the main Snart is deceased.
  • Warrior Therapist: A vigilante and a qualified therapist.

     General Schott 

General Winslow "Winn" Schott, Jr.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/genschott.png

Species: Human

Played By: Jeremy Jordan

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note 

see Arrowverse: Earth-38 — The Legion of Super-Heroes page for his Earth-38 counterpart.

  • Adaptational Badass: Earth-38 Winn has shown plenty of impressive skills, but this Winn is more or less the leader of the resistance fighting the New Reichsmen.
  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: This Winn is the leader of the Freedom Fighters rather than the mission control and technological support of the D.E.O.
  • Badass Beard: Notably hairier than the regular Winn.
  • Big Good: Regardless of his bad attitude, he commands the Resistance.
  • General Ripper: Defeating the Reich is far more important to him than saving lives, to the point that he sends Red Tornado to destroy the gateway back to Earth-1 rather than let our heroes use it to get home.
  • Good Is Not Nice: He's not very reasonable, but he fights for the side of good against a regime of purely evil Nazi conquerors. If he has any chance to strike a blow, he'll take it. This contrasts with his Nice Guy Earth-38 counterpart.
  • La Résistance: He is The Leader of the Freedom Fighters.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Despite everyone's pleas to let them use the gateway to return home, this Winn is too full of revenge to listen to reason and is willing to strand them on Earth-X if it means trapping the Nazis on their Earth.

  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: Ray notes how cool it is that she, John and him are working together again, as he also worked with their counterparts on Earth-1.
  • Casting a Shadow: Able to envelop an area in complete darkness; large enough to black out an entire battalion or small enough to blindside a single person.

  • Alternate Self: Appears to be the Earth-X counterpart to Earth-38's Red Tornado.
  • Blow You Away: Has wind-based abilities.
  • Color Character: Red Tornado.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Overgirl boils his head with Heat Vision and rips his arms off.
  • Death of Personality: He used to have a personality, but he got killed by Overgirl early in the animated miniseries. The Flash and Ray are essentially only fighting his rebuilt, reprogrammed body in the crossover.
  • Good Twin: His Earth-38 counterpart was a Villain of the Week.
  • Hero Antagonist: He works for the Freedom Fighters, but he opposes the Flash and the Ray due to General Schott sending him to destroy the building with all the Earth-1 heroes in it.
  • Implacable Man: He No Sells everything Ray and Flash throw at him and tries to continue his objective no matter what, only being stopped when they combine their lightnings into a powerful attack.
  • In Spite of a Nail: He still was burnt by a version of Kara Zor-El.
  • Red Is Heroic: Calls himself Red Tornado and his overall body is red.
  • The Voiceless: He only speaks in the animated miniseries; he has no lines in his live-action appearance.

see the Arrowverse: Other Locales page for his Earth-1 counterpart

  • Badass Beard: He sports a Perma-Stubble unlike his Earths 1 and 38 counterparts.
  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: Unlike his Earth-38 counterpart's silver armor, his is partially golden like in the comics.
  • Composite Character: Of Jimmy Olsen and Guardian, much like the main Earth-38 version.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: For the main (Earth-38) Jimmy Olsen.
  • Defiant to the End: Vows to Dark Arrow that more like him will continue the fight for freedom.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Much like on Earth-38, this Jimmy Olsen still ended up being Guardian.
  • La Résistance: Was part of a faction fighting the Nazi regime that was slaughtered by Dark Arrow.
  • Mythology Gag: His Guardian suit has golden armor, including the helmet, which makes it look more like Guardian's suit in the comics than the gray and black suit his Earth-38 self wears.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Killed by Dark Arrow in the opening scene to show just how savage the New Reichsmen are.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: His costume incorporates the colors and patterns of the American flag, mostly in the chest. This is more symbolic than usual, since in this world the American flag has been replaced by a Nazi flag. Before he's killed, he insists that the flag still means something to him.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Killed within moments of being introduced.

Played By: Stephen Amell (Crisis on Earth-X)

Voiced By: Matthew Mercer (Freedom Fighters: The Ray)

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note  | Freedom Fighters: The Ray

Der Führer of Earth-X and The Leader of the New Reichsmen.

See the Oliver Queen page for his Earth-1 counterpart
See the Earth-2 page for his Earth-2 counterpart

  • Archer Archetype: Much like his main universe counterpart.
  • Asshole Victim: Considering that this version of Oliver is a scumbag Nazi in general of the highest order, no ones going to miss him when Oliver from the Earth-1 timeline kills him in self-defense very up close given that Earth-X Oliver is going to kill pretty much everyone in the name of the New Reichsmen after Kara's inevitable death.
  • Badass in Charge: He's actually the current Führer of the Nazi regime.
  • Badass Normal: Has no superpowers, but more than makes up for it with his impressive hand-to-hand combat and his Trick Arrows. At one point, he takes on five-to-one odds, including two powerful metahumans, and wins handily.
  • Beard of Evil: He sports the same stubble as his Earth-1 counterpart, but sadly lacks his compassion.
  • Big Bad: He's the Führer of the Nazi regime and seems to have the most authority among the New Reichsmen.
  • Big "NO!": When Overgirl dies.
  • Celebrity Paradox: Barry was mentioned to be a fan of Dragon Ball Z in Season Three of The Flash. Dark Arrow's voice actor in Freedom Fighters: The Ray played Hit in Dragon Ball Super.
  • Composite Character: Though he's known as Dark Arrow, he serves the role of Black Arrow, the comics Earth-2 Evil Doppelgänger of Oliver Queen. His status as the Earth-X Evil Doppelgänger of a hero who became The Champion of the New Reichsmen was actually held by Overman (the Earth-X Superman), who was similarly distraught over the loss of Overgirl.
  • Crazy-Prepared:
    • Gets the jump on Kid Flash's Arrow Catch with an electrified arrow.
    • When Killer Frost appears to get the jump on him and starts to freeze him by grabbing his bow, he turns the tables on her electrifying the bow.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: For and courtesy of the main (Earth-1) Oliver.
  • Doomed by Canon: Since Crisis on Earth-X aired before Freedom Fighters: The Ray (which is a prequel), Dark Arrow will inevitably be fated to die as he did in the crossover. At the same time, that means there's no chance of him dying in the animated series.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Makes his debut by brutally slaughtering members of the resistance, then coldly executing the Earth-X version of James Olsen.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • He appears to be upset about the death of Prometheus-X, who is Tommy Merlyn. Also, he genuinely loves his wife Overgirl, which Thawne fears will compromise his loyalty to the Fatherland by completing the mission.
    • As cruel and cold as he is, his main motivation in the crossover is to save Overgirl's life by taking Kara's heart. Unfortunately for him, Overgirl dies before he can accomplish that, and he's quickly killed by Earth-1 Oliver afterward.
  • Foil: Earth-1 Oliver is fairly open-minded and progressive, and has dated an awkward, nerdy Jewish Non-Action Girl (Felicity) and a bisexual woman (Sara). Oliver-X puts minorities in concentration camps and, according to Lance-X, enjoys executing Jews. Oh, and he's in love with a blonde, blue-eyed, confident embodiment of Aryan perfection, a literal Ubermädchen, who's best known for her physicality.
    • Oliver is known for being emotional, including brooding. Der Führer says he feels nothing, and indeed acts almost completely emotionless.
  • Four-Star Badass: A Frontline General and possibly the most skilled Badass Normal on the New Reich's side given that he's a Mirror Match to Earth-1 Oliver who is the World's Best Warrior.
  • Frontline General: Der Führer who actively participates in battle himself. In his first scene he alone was the only one who went to dispatch the members of the resistance guarding a research base.
  • Hero Killer: In his first scene, he kills the Earth-X version of Guardian.
  • Hypocrite:
    • Is the leader of a regime that persecutes Jews, queer people and people of color, but is married to a member of a different species altogether, who presumably gets a pass because she coincidentally happens to look like a blonde, blue-eyed white human.
    • He calls Oliver and the rest from Earth-1 weak and soft, yet he himself is incredibly vulnerable when it comes to his wife.
  • Irony: On Earth-1, Oliver and Prometheus are arch enemies, while on Earth-X they're best friends.
  • In Spite of a Nail: He became an Archer Archetype like his Earth-1 counterpart, wears a similar costume, is in a leadership position, and is still best friends with Tommy.
  • Interspecies Romance: With the Kryptonian Overgirl.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Avoids his Earth-1 counterpart's Domino Mask, instead going for a full face mask with goggles that are more akin to what Prometheus wears.
  • One-Man Army: He single-handedly defeats the combined efforts of Heat Wave, Killer Frost, Mr. Terrific, Wild Dog, and Black Canary.
  • Paint It Black: Aside from his mask, his overall costume is just like his Earth-1 counterpart's, only black with red accents.
  • Related in the Adaptation: He is the first version of Green Arrow to be married to a version of Supergirl.
  • Saved by Canon: Gets captured by the Resistance at the end of Freedom Fighters Season 2, but is bound to break out due to his appearance in Crisis.
  • The Stoic: He openly claims to feel nothing, and indeed, keeps up a very cold demeanor, only showing emotion at the deaths of Prometheus and Overgirl.
  • Trick Arrow: Has displayed ones that appear even more high-tech than our Oliver's.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Overgirl.
  • Villainous Friendship: He and Tommy Merlyn are Heterosexual Life-Partners just like their Earth-1 counterparts.

Species: Kryptonian

Played By: Melissa Benoist

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note  | Freedom Fighters: The Ray

Overgirl: You're looking more human. Scared, helpless, pathetic. Inferior.
Kara: We're not that different from them.
Overgirl: Oh, please, we're everything they want to be. Blond, white. Aryan perfection.

A Kryptonian woman who landed on Earth. Rather than being shunned for being an alien, she was embraced not only for immense strength but for also being the "ideal" Aryan.

see the Arrowverse: Kara Zor-El page for her Earth-38 counterpart

  • A God Am I: She tells Kara that humans see Supergirl, and by extension Overgirl, as a god.
  • Asshole Victim: She gets a deadly heart condition and eventually succumbs to it, but she is too unsympathetic for anyone (save her husband) to be upset.
  • The Baroness: Tall, beautiful, and deadly.
  • Beware the Superman: Overgirl shows us just how horrifying it would be if survivors of the House of El used the gifts granted by Earth's yellow sun to do evil instead of being beacons of good and hope.
  • Blessed with Suck: Being overloaded with yellow sun radiation supercharges her powers. It also gives her a lethal heart condition that eventually kills her.
  • Cain and Abel: She killed the Earth-X version of Alex.
  • Composite Character: She bears the name of Overgirl and her status as a girl with Kryptonian powers working for the New Reichsman, while being an Alternate Universe Evil Doppelgänger of Kara Zor-El is more in line with Ultragirl of Earth-3.
  • Dark Chick: For the New Reichsmen.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: Ends up as this to the main (Earth-38) Kara, not that the latter is sad about it.
  • Doomed by Canon: Since Crisis on Earth-X aired before Freedom Fighters: The Ray (which is a prequel), Overgirl will inevitably be fated to die as she did in the crossover.
  • The Dragon: As his wife, Earth-X's heavy hitter, and because Thawne is in it for selfish reasons while Prometheus is dealt with early on, she serves as this to Dark Arrow.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Her husband might be the New Reichsmen's Commander, but she's unquestionably their most powerful fighter.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: A ruthless and sadistic Nazi with a god complex, bearing the face of one of the Arrowverse's most adorkable heroines.
  • Flying Brick: Even more so than Supergirl, though it came with a cost.
  • Flying Firepower: Just like her main counterpart, she can fly and fire Eye Beams.
  • Four-Star Badass: She's a general for the New Reichsmen, allowing Supergirl to make a Superman II Shout-Out.
    Supergirl: General. Would you care to step outside?
  • Handicapped Badass: She's suffering from a heart ailment. Doesn't stop her for being a kickass Dark Action Girl.
  • Hypocrite: Looks down on humans despite being married to one.
  • Icarus Allusion: She even name drops the original myth when talking about how her heart ailment was the result of being too close to the Sun.
  • Ill Girl: Turns out she has heart problems from flying too close to the sun.
  • Immune to Bullets: She's a Kryptonian, after all.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Much like in Earth-38, she still landed on Earth and was raised by the counterparts of the Danvers family.
  • Interspecies Romance: [With the human Dark Arrow.
  • No Body Left Behind: She dies after exploding.
  • Related in the Adaptation: She is the first version of Supergirl to be married to a version of Green Arrow.
  • Smug Super: Extremely arrogant and confident in her abilities, which would pass for overconfidence if she weren't the New Reichsmen's heaviest hitter.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Subverted. She was the only female member of the New Reischmen, but it is revealed Laurel Lance from the same earth also belonged to the organization.
  • Statuesque Stunner: A tall and beautiful woman much like her Earth-38 counterpart.
  • Super Strength: Can heft heavy machinery like it's made of cotton.
  • Token Minority: Weird that fanatics who think they are the master race would have one of these but she's the only alien among them. She gets a pass because of her strength and she otherwise appears to be their ideal human. She's also the only high ranking female member.
  • Token Non-Human: The only alien among the New Reichsmen.
  • Token Super: Considering Dark Flash is actually Eobard Thawne of Earth-1, the Reverse-Flash, she is this to the New Reichsmen native to Earth-X. Subverted later when the Reichsmen also had Laurel Lance.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: She killed her adoptive sister, and it's heavily implied that she did the same to her adoptive parents.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Dark Arrow.

     Dark Flash

Tommy Merlyn / Prometheus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tommy_merlyn_earth_x.jpg
"Your naïveté would be charming, if your weakness wasn't so pathetic..."

Species: Human

Played By: Colin Donnell

Voiced By: Michael Dorn (uncredited)

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note 

Earth-X's version of Prometheus, who is not the same person underneath the mask as his Earth-1 counterpart, Simon Morrison alias Adrian Chase, but rather Tommy Merlyn.

See the Arrowverse: Team Arrow Family Members page for his Earth-1 counterpart

  • Advertised Extra: Though a major focus in the ads for Crisis on Earth-X, he's dead by the start of the second episode.
  • Badass Normal: Much like Dark Arrow, his skills are his superpower.
  • Beard of Evil: His Earth-1 self's facial hair ranged from clean-shaven to some stubble, but Prometheus's stubble is quite thick, making him look more sinister.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: While held in captivity by STAR Labs, he commits suicide via cyanide pill.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Gives a very convincing sob story about the horrors of Earth-X, only to act disgusted when Oliver falls for it.
  • Composite Character: Of Prometheus and the villainous Tommy Merlyn from the New 52 comics.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: His abrupt death still leaves the rest of the New Reichsmen at large.
  • Dual Wielding: Unlike his Earth-1 counterpart, this Prometheus prefers using two swords in combat.
  • Easter Egg: Before the Earth-1 Prometheus was revealed to be "Adrian Chase", a popular fan theory had him be a resurrected Tommy Merlyn. As such, this is likely a nod to that theory.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: Played with. Both versions of Prometheus are evil, but only Earth-X Tommy Merlyn is a villain.
  • Foil: While Morrison was a master tactician, Tommy is used as a blunt instrument by the New Reichsmen. While Morrison relied on a variety of weapons, Tommy sticks to his chokuto and uses the rest of his weapons as decoration. While Morrison led his own group and absolutely hated Oliver, Tommy defers to the Führer/Dark Arrow and is unshakeably devoted to him.
  • For Want of a Nail: This Prometheus is not Simon Morrison but rather Tommy Merlyn.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • While he's Tommy Merlyn's Alternate Self instead of Simon Morrison's, his costume is the same one worn by Earth-1 Prometheus and his disguised voice sounds the same.
    • Much like Earth-1's Prometheus, [he is defeated when he kills himself.
    • Much like on Earth-1, he's still Oliver Queen's best friend, and dies in front of him.
    • A Merlyn still ended up as a dark archer.
  • Jerkass: He fakes a traumatic backstory and horror at the atrocities of the New Reichsmen just to screw with Oliver and to laugh in his face when he falls for it.
  • Leitmotif: He has the same ticking clock theme as Earth-1 Prometheus, while the music when he unmasks himself is a reprise of Tommy's death theme.
  • Role Reprisal: While he's played by a different actor to Earth-1 Prometheus due to being different characters under the mask, Michael Dorn does reprise his role as the voice of Prometheus while he's masked.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: A good looking dark-haired man with a bad attitude.
  • Villainous Friendship: He claims that he and Dark Arrow have this while speaking with Oliver, and judging by Dark Arrow's reaction to his death, this was not just one of his manipulations.
  • Walking Spoiler: Much like the Earth-1 Prometheus, Earth-X's Prometheus identity is heavily kept under wraps until he's ready to unmask himself.

     Metallo 

Metallo

Species: Enhanced Human

Voiced By: Frederick Schmidt (uncredited)

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note 

Earth-X's version of Metallo, who might have once been John Corben.

See the Arrowverse: Earth-38 — Project Cadmus section for its Earth-38 counterpart

  • The Brute: For the New Reichsmen, especially since this Metallo is entirely conspired of robotics.
  • Chest Blaster: He can fire beams from the kryptonite power core on his chest.
  • Evil Brit: The one time we hear him speak, he has an English accent like his Earth-38 counterpart.
  • Expy: Very strongly resembles a Terminator endoskeleton, just with glowing green eyes instead of red.
  • Man of Kryptonite: A literal example, being his power source.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Metallo-X receiving a barrage of attacks from over half a dozen of the heroes in multiple directions.
  • Was Once a Man: Possibly, as Kara believes this to be John Corben, but since Earth-X's Metallo is akin to a Terminator, we can't know for sure.

     Sturmbannführer Lance 

Sturmbannführer Lance

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sturmbannfhrer.png

Species: Human

Played By: Paul Blackthorne

Appearances: Crisis on Earth-X note 

Earth-X's version of Quentin Lance, here a fanatical follower of the Nazi regime and high-ranking Schutzstaffel member.

see the Team Arrow Family Members page for his Earth-1 counterpart.
see the Earth-2 page for his Earth-2 counterpart

  • Abusive Parents: That's putting it mildly, as he killed his own daughter for being bisexual.
  • Bait the Dog: When he first sees Earth-1 Sara, he stops to acknowledge and converse with her with the potential of having pity given she is an alternate version of one of his daughters. Then he switches gears when she mentions being bisexual and responds by recounting how he killed his own child.
  • Bald of Evil: He has a shaved head like his Earth-1 counterpart. But unlike him, he's a despicable person.
  • Beard of Evil: Sports the same stubble of his Earth-1 counterpart, only he's evil.
  • British Nazis: A Nazi who has a British accent.
  • Chewing the Scenery: Paul Blackthorne plays him with great relish, especially rolling his Rs, and makes every other actor during the crossover look downright calm in comparison.
  • Commissar Cap: He wears one, indicating his high rank.
  • Evil Brit: Unlike Earth-1 Lance, who speaks with an American accent, this Lance uses his actor's natural, if exaggerated, accent.
  • Eviler Than Thou: In terms of the little attachments the Nazis have. Dark Arrow, Overgirl, Prometheus and Siren all express care for somebody at some point. Lance, on the other hand, killed his own daughter and is proud of it.
  • Foil:
    • Arrow started with Detective Lance trying to sniff out Oliver's secret identity as the Hood (who would become the Green Arrow). This Lance tries to sniff out Green Arrow pretending to be Oliver Queen-X, using similar deductive abilities.
    • He killed his version of Sara because she was bisexual. Earth-1 Lance took her coming out a hell of a lot better.
  • Frontline General: Is not afraid to get his own hands dirty in a fight.
  • Impostor Exposing Test: He obviously anticipated Oliver attempting to impersonate his counterpart and set up a test to verify his identity. More clearly, he brought this Earth's version of Felicity before him and expected him to shoot her.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: Makes it out alive in the end of the 4-parter, but the Nazi regime get's toppled off-screen, so one can assume that he received his punishment..
  • Offing the Offspring: Did this to his Earth's version of Sara, referring to her as filth for being bisexual.
  • Speak Ill of the Dead: Freely refers to his daughter Sara as filth for being bisexual while talking to her Earth-1 counterpart.
  • Spotting the Thread: He starts cottoning on to Oliver's disguise almost immediately.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: "Did you really think I would hand you a loaded weapon before VERIFYING WHO YOU ARE!?"
  • Uncertain Doom: Due to the Nazi regime being overthrown off-screen, the audience doesn't know whether he is dead or simply imprisoned.
  • You Are in Command Now: Possibly, after Overgirl and Dark Arrow are dead and Thawne has fled like a coward.

     Siren-X 

Laurel Lance / Siren-X

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4_63.jpg

Species: Enhanced Human

Played By: Katie Cassidy

Appearances: The Flash

The last survivor of the New Reichsmen, hellbent on getting revenge on Leo Snart and the rest of the Freedom Fighters.

See the Arrowverse: Team Arrow page for her Earth-1 counterpart
See the Arrowverse: Dinah Laurel Lance page for her Earth-2 counterpart

  • All Love Is Unrequited: She carried a torch for the Dark Arrow, which was obviously unrequited since he married Overgirl.
  • Aloof Big Sister: Heavily implied, considering what her father did to her sister and she herself displaying the same zero redeeming qualities.
  • The Baroness: Dark Action Girl? Check. Wears leather? Check. Tall, Dark, and Snarky? Check.
  • The Dutiful Daughter: Unlike Earth-X Sara, Earth-X Laurel followed the New Reichsmen line through and through.
  • Evil Twin: The second villainous Alternate Self for Laurel Lance. Ultimately, she also becomes this to the first villainous Laurel from Earth-2, who chooses to reform.
  • Glass Cannon: Like Earth-2 Laurel, she has a powerful scream, but is vulnerable. She is defeated when Barry runs over her.
  • Informed Ability: Zig-Zagged. She is touted by Word of God as the most powerful Laurel Lance in The Multiverse, and while her metahuman powers are certainly more superior/advanced than the Earth-2 version, her hand-to-hand skills weren't displayed unlike the latter's. The second is especially jarring since Leo mentioned that she's a trained assassin.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • She fell in love with Oliver Queen only for it to not work out in her favor, like her counterparts from Earths-1 and 2.
    • Yet another Laurel who had superpowers and was evil. The main difference is that unlike Black Siren, who had a long list of Freudian Excuses that drove her to villainy, Siren X never lost anyone and still turned evil.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Much like her Earth-2 counterpart, her main power is her devistating scream.
  • Military Brat: Her father is Sturmbannführer, the equivalent of Major, to the New Reichsmen.
  • Remember the New Guy?: She's a loyal New Reichsman who was conspicuously absent during Crisis on Earth-X and hasn't (yet) been featured in Freedom Fighters: The Ray.
  • The Remnant: By the time she appears, Siren X is one of the last of the New Reichsmen still running about (not counting Thawne, and only the Speed Force knows what he's currently up to).
  • Replacement Flat Character: She's essentially Black Siren minus the Character Development she'd been going through on Arrow.
  • Revenge: Wants to kill Leo Snart and destroy Earth-1 for defeating the New Reichsmen.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Like all Laurel Lances, she's nearly 5'8.
  • Superpower Lottery: The most powerful Laurel Lance we've seen so far, demonstrating powers that not even Black Siren has — like being able to detect sound waves from far off distances like a sort of pseudo-echolocation.
  • Super Senses: She apparently has super hearing (in addition to her other powers).
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Has more haughtiness than her Earth-2 counterpart.
  • Undying Loyalty: She is still fanatically loyal to her Nazi ideals, even though the Regime is already beaten and Dark Arrow dead.
  • Villainous Rescue: She teleports in to save Leo and Barry from DeVoe. Subverted however, since he saw it coming.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We don't know what happens to her after The Flash knocks her out in the climax, as she's not mentioned again.
