Crisis On Infinite Earths was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated TV events of all time. The sixth annual Arrowverse crossover, it once again saw the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl unite, as they joined forces with new arrival Batwoman in a desperate bid to save the multiverse from doom at the hands of the Anti-Monitor.

The first three installments took place in December, setting up the event that had been in the making for over five years while also pulling the rug out from under us on multiple occasions. Furthermore, the crossover also scored a ton of points with viewers for its abundance of delightful DC Easter Eggs. But the fun and games stopped when the Anti-Monitor achieved his goal and wiped the multiverse from existence with his wave of antimatter.
