I’m talking, in fact, about The CW’s mega crossover occasion “Disaster on Infinite Earths,” which tied collectively numerous DC display screen franchises into the identical multiverse. The Arrowverse miniseries’ first episode opened with a montage of varied Earths being affected by the Anti-Monitor’s Anti-Matter wave.
