The Flash and Photon



In two seasons, The Flash has been a springboard to bring a lot of DC characters and concepts to TV,  I love how the show has fully embraced its roots, with DCU heroes and villains battling against a backdrop of multiple Earths and time travel.  Some of the family/romantic melodrama can be a bit tough to wade through, but there are still enough cool comic book inspired moments each episode to keep me coming back.  I look forward to seeing how Barry Allen's drastic action in the season finale will affect the series going forward.

Photon (as Captain Marvel) and The Flash have sort of appeared in a comic together before: Quasar #17. http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2011/07/31/comic-book-easter-eggs-the-classic-buried-alien-bit/

Plus, the Tangent Earth Flash is a blonde, blue-eyed version of Photon (nee Monica Rambeaus).

Speaking of parallel-Earths; I can't help but wonder if one of those consequences, of the Season 2 cliff-hanger, will be some kind of retroactive merger between CW Earth One and Supergirl's foster home world.

In a Flash/Photon team-up, I think I would have preferred to see the Earth-14 (Tangent) Flash, though I do appreciate that you wanted to comment on the Flash TV show (which I want to see, but haven't yet been able to). Maybe Monica and Lia can meet at some later time.

I second Bob Greenwade's motion. Such a meeting would be a true de-LIGHT!

;-D

Or, even better, Lupin III vs. Carmen Sandiego!
