This stuff is great, Adam Hunt has to definitely been modeled off of Lex Luthor, wonder if that means we'll never seen Lex on this show. No biggie if not mind.

I wonder if "Isabel Rochev/The Queen" will end up been Oliver's Mother

Totally agree

I love it when they make an effort and really go for it with the Comic Book references.

Great thread!

Tonights episode Blüdhaven was mention at that train scene. Of course Blüdhaven is the city where NightWing lives and he protects. I thought that was very awesome!

Guys! You forgot the most obvious Easter egg of them all!

The hamburger place Diggle's sister works at (where he and Oliver have been frequenting) is called BIG BELLY BURGERs, which is the hamburger chain that occupies the DC Universe. Jimmy Olsen and Ron Troup are known to be frequent customers.
