Following last night’s stellar episodes of Arrow and The Flash, The CW has released a first look at the Anti-Monitor, the major villain of Crisis On Infinite Earths.
We see that the Anti-Monitor does look a lot different than its comic book counterpart, but at least it is similar to the Monitor from the Arrowverse, both being played by LaMonica Garrett.
Speaking of the comics, Crisis On Infinite Earths kicked off when both the Monitor and Anti-Monitor were woken by experients made by Pariah (played by Tom Cavanagh in the crossover). The Monitor represents the positive matter with the Anti-Monitor the anti-matter, so when the Anti-Monitor woke up it began consuming all the positive matter and getting more and more powerful, which saw the Monitor recruit the heroes of Earth and the various Earths from the multiverse.
Regarding the Anti-Monitor and the Crisis crossover event, things started to play out last night on Arrow and The Flash, as Barry went ahead in time one day after his death where Barry ran into an anti-matter barrier in the Speed Force, and Jay Garrick also revealed there has been dangerous increase in anti-matter throughout the multiverse. Speaking of the multiverse, Arrow saw the destruction of Earth-2! Watch previews below for the next episodes.
