    And the JSA were apparently formed in 1940's, judging by a recent Legends S2 synopsis, which begs the question of how nobody realized the existence of Metahumans and Superheroes before The Arrow and Flash turned up :confused:.

    <face palm> Timeline tampering shenanigans perhaps?

    Probably something like that. They already have to justify joining together the modern JSA members with the classic members on-top of that, so there's probably going to be a lot of time travel involved :sweat:.

    That doesn't fill with much optimism. Cause time travel... but anyway we digress.

    Hey, What other live action or animated series do you want to see in the Arrowverse?

    This thread is only about the Ray. If you want, make a new thread. Take note, this is DC animated only.

    Okay, but wasn't that on an alternate Earth (though not Earth-2 in this continuity)?

    The JSA were apparently formed on Earth-1 of this continuity, given Vixen's grandmother was a member and they've specified a date of 1940 for their founding.

    Back on Justice League Unlimited, in the "Patriot Act" episode, Mister Terrific mentioned the Ray is on a mission with Vixen. They didn't show any scenes with the two but who knows, this web-series might lead to a team-up between the two, probably inspired by that brief throw-away line from a cartoon that aired a decade earlier. :p

    Yah its becoming more and more difficult to follow the multiple time-lines and universes that exist in these shows. Hard to believe it all spawned from Arrow which started out as a gritty and more realistic approach, then did a complete 360 introducing Magic, Resurrection, Meta-Humans, Aliens, Time Travel, Multiple Universes ect. I do enjoy these shows, but I definitely share your concern.

    I really like the sound of ambitious, gives it a more interesting sound.

    Probably reading into this, but wondering if Vixen is either getting a full-blown animated spin-off or a live-action spin-off and The Ray will be a supporting char

    Yeah, count me in the camp of thinking we're getting a full Vixen series. Between this "larger news", Young Justice season 3 getting greenlit with no network attached, and a CEO's comments about more DC content and a possible streaming service, I imagine Vixen will be one of the first shows for said service. Maybe the Ray to follow or be a part of it?

    When he says "ambitious," I wonder if that has anything to do with introducing and using the Freedom Fighters and trying to make them work in the Arrowverse?

    Good to know production is still moving forward :).

    In the original article there was another quote from Guggenheim
    So expect some Arrowverse guest stars. I don't know. Maybe it's a parallel Earth, i.e. Earth-4?

    If it is, I want an episode of Flash next season where he teams-up with the Freedom Fighters on their Earth :D.

    I was wondering what other Arrowverse hero we'd see pop up here, but it makes sense for it to be the other animated one ;).
