    Earth X was the Earth that was fighting still WW2 in the 70's (the Nazi's won WW2, but there was still a fighting resistance). It was the pre-crisis home of the Freedom Fighters, and although apparently at one point it was retconned (probably pre-crisis) so that the Freedom fighters migraited from Earth 2 to Earth X (according to wikipedia), the JSA was never there and never fought there.

    The JSA stories in the 70s All Star Comics run and later Infinity Inc definately took place in real time (aka the 70s, 80s, etc). I've read the whole All Star Comics run and a lot of Infinity Inc, and they all agreed that the JSA fought in WW2, which ended when WW2 actually ended, and that they all existed without looking much older in the 70s and 80s.

    So, Syn got out of Starling city and turned up at a reform school for wayward girls in Arizona.

    From Seattle, (The Killing) to Starling (Arrow), to Arizona (Longmire), playing pretty much the same character with the same haircut. Wonder where she'll turn up next?

    On CSI, where she'll be playing a murdered hooker at Tangiers.

    First thing that springs to mind is "Daniel" sounds like Ted Kord.

    He got shot in the head by his manager.

    Really though, it would probably involve the death of his mentor, Dan Garrett.

    It's worth noting that Ted's best friend comes from the same time period as Flash's arch-nemesis.

    Same here. Especially with the Kord name being dropped in the previous season.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Super handsome and exuding confidence is not Ted Kord.

    Possibly by the end days, (he shagged Oracle.) but not the beginning.

    I'm getting a more Booster Gold vibe from Daniel, which eventually leads to Kord's Beetle.

    Kord was an Acrobat.

    Conflating him with Jamie Reyes' Beetle is a snooker.

    Maxwell Lord was not the Blue Beetle's Manager.

    Lord was formerly the leader of several Justice Leagues, and when he killed Ted, he was the Black king of Checkmate, who are the Superspies murdering threats to global security before they happen.

    "Manager"

    What sort of Chicken shit outfit do you think they were running there?

    Maybe 'Daniel' is Bruce Wayne. :devil:

    'Seth' sounds like Count Vertigo. Hey why not I like the character and maybe he was exposed to mirakuru.

    Why would there be a casting sheet needed for him?

    Not sure what you mean?

    For you naysayers, they probably can't use Batman but that doesn't meant they can't use Bruce Wayne.

    Considering they are using Bruce in a movie and another series, I don't think they'll use him on Arrow.

    Yes, the character of Bruce Wayne is probably part of the Gotham license, and won't be available to Arrow.

    I think he means they wouldn't need a casting sheet for Count Vertigo, because they already used that character on the show.

    More concerned they're using blatantly Japanese names for characters based in Hong Kong, and we know that Ollie's past involves more Triads than Yakuza. Most likely just changing to hide true identities (how many Asian villains can there be in DC anyway?) but still...

    It's like hiding a French character behind a German name.

    Looking at you, Jean Reno in 'Mission Impossible'.

    I hope "Daniel" turns out to be Ted Kord. I loved the 80s Blue Beetle.

    Yeah, they know who the actor is
