    Eh, I'd say they're only missing Diana. Cav-El and Batfleck were hardly paragon material either, imo. They already chose a better Superman. And the only live-action Batman I'd deem worthy was Bale. AquaBro can stay where he is. Cyborg would be fine, but I liked the Doom Patrol version of him more.

    Idk. I feel like anyone from the cinematic Justice League would have made more sense than Kate, Ryan, and MM.

    Interesting that this event gives him the Flash moniker.

    Can't agree about my boy Martian Manhunter. Honor is like his whole thing.

    And I'm pretty sure the whole point of Ryan IS that he's a nobody. They were chosen for what they represent. He represents the heroism of the everyday joe who just got swept up in this - ergo, destiny.

    Ain't gonna fight you on Kate though, lol. Just swap her w/ Diana and they'd be all good far as I'm concerned.

    What happened to that cape move thing that Kara learned when she got this new outfit? She should do that again.

    If it's what I'm thinking of, that was her old cape.

    I could only imagine how cool this would look with a theatrical budget.

    Sad to say most of this crossover doesn't work for me mainly because I don't care and almost hate Oliver Queen. I care less and less each time he dies. That final moment fell so flat to me.

    I feel like Cyborg fits the whole paragon of humanity when compared to Ryan. Victor was also once an average/everyday man. Hell, Diana should have been the Paragon of love as well.lol

    And I also feel like the biggest reason why Sara is an paragon is because of her experiences with time travel/Vanishing point. Take that off of her resume and then you could replace her with a few other characters.

    Mamoa's Aquaman and Cavill's Superman are both honorable as well imho.

    They're all "honorable" in their own ways. Just as they're all courageous and have all loved and have all been swept up by destiny, etc. They're heroes afterall. But the very idea of honor has driven Martian Manhunter at a core level throughout his time on the show in a way that it hasn't for those characters. His major conflicts and life choices have been about honor - the honor of his family or the honor of his people. He's certainly talked about honor more than anyone, lol. No argument about Sara, but that experience was obviously vital to this scenario. And Victor may have been an average guy once upon a time, but not when this Crisis came along. I would've kept everything the same except swapped out Diana for Kate, and had Diana be the paragon of Love and moved Barry over to the paragon of Courage (since he was so determined to make the sacrifice play leading up to this). But oh well, they're working with who they've got.

    Did anyone else get a chuckle out of Ryan Choi fighting the anti-demons like some 5 yr old fighting imaginary bad guys? Like, he was so out of place in that battle.

    This episode really seemed like a filler episode, it was like they didnt know how to properly fill 5hrs so they just created a random "flashback" episode revisiting the most random moments.

    Which is exactly why I didnt understand him being a Paragon. Though none of them did much in general. He should've been dead during that battle.
