The CW crossover for this year is called Crisis on Infinite Earths and most of the CW shows and characters are seen or said as a reference by someone.

So I am wondering if someone could explain which characters and shows are referenced.

The crossover is not over yet, it is taking a mid-break and will continue in January. The following are the shows I could identify

  • The Flash
  • The Arrow
  • Supergirl
  • Batwoman
  • Legends of Tomorrow
  • Black Lightning
  • Lucifer
  • Titans??
  • Old Flash?
  • 1
    You only want for pre-existing character and show reference only not made up one?

You are missing out few, will try to answer in chronology:

From Supergirl S05E08:

  • Tim Burton's Batman Movies: Alexander Knox (Robert Wuhl) cameo who was the first to report upon The Joker's crimes

  • Titans: Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters) cameo

  • Batman (1966 TV series): Robin (Burt Ward) shouts "Holy Crimson Skies Of Death!"

  • Freedom Fighters: The Ray We see Russell Tovey flying in his Ray costume.

Then, of course, we see Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow characters

From Batwoman S01E09

  • Smallville: powerless retired Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

  • Superman Returns: Brandon Routh Superman (costume from Kingdom Come TPB)

  • Batman: Kevin Conroy as Batman in the future

  • Jonah Hex: Johnathan Schaech as Jonah tries to prevent Oliver's resurrection in the Lazarus Pit

From The Flash S06E08

  • Birds of Prey (2002 TV series): Helena Kyle Cameo

  • Lucifer: Lucifer cameo

  • The Flash (1990 TV series): Flash (John Wesley Shipp) appears

  • Black Lightning: Black Lightning cameo

  • 1
    Tina Magee (Amanda Pays) appeared when 1990s Flash saw his life flash before his eyes, though I think that was a clip from the original 1990 series, so she didn't act in that episode. Do you think that one should be in the list?
