2. The Reverse-Flash Was A No-Show

The person responsible for introducing us to the Crisis as an Arrowverse concept was none other than Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash. The Flash's Season 1 Big Bad constantly teased us with its impending arrival reminding us all that it was coming as recently as the Season 5 finale - when he even told Barry that he would see him in his next 'Crisis'.

So why, after future newspapers foretelling of an epic showdown between him and the Scarlet Speedster, didn't he show?

Now, don't get this writer wrong, for this isn't exactly a criticism of the near-perfect Crisis, it's more of an unanswered question - but, unfortunately, not the good kind. After years of expecting him to show, it was something of a letdown to see that he wasn't part of it after all.
