The Seven Paragons
The story follows the heroes that have been recruited by the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) to fight against the destruction of the Anti-Monitor—In order to defeat the Anti-Monitor, the heroes must discover all 7 paragons. Our in-office aficionado, Jose, has predictions for what’ll happen next.
*The following MAY contain spoilers, read at your own risk*
In the original story, Flash sacrifices himself to save earth. Thus far, they have found 3 of the 7 paragons. Flash’s death may very well bring us the 4th paragon. If the show follows the original story, Flash will die. Flash’s death will merge the earths that exist amongst the multi-verse. However, the respective Flash’s from earths 2 and 3, shall live on.

Jose’s prediction: All the heroes will merge into earth 1 and co-exist amongst each other. All major characters will remain alive, apart from Green Arrow who will inevitably die. Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, the Legends, Superman, and Elongated man shall live on.
