That could certainly fit with Armageddon’s scale and scope.
The Flash Season 8: Armageddon Story
Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of the CW:
“A powerful alien threat arrives on Earth under mysterious circumstances and Barry (Grant Gustin), Iris (Candice Patton) and the rest of Team Flash are pushed to their limits in a desperate battle to save the world. But with time running out, and the fate of humanity at stake, Flash and his companions will also need to enlist the help of some old friends if the forces of good are to prevail.”
While that doesn’t tell us a whole heckuva lot, we sure can speculate on this. Armageddon shares a name with a famed DC Comics crossover of the 1990s: Armageddon 2001. The hilarious “futuristic” dating aside, Armageddon told the tale of a mysterious threat named “Monarch.” While Monarch wasn’t technically an alien (he was from the future), the mystery of his identity meant that he COULD be, so perhaps this synopsis is just playing with expectations.
Whenever DC shows borrow names from comic storylines, they often just take general inspiration from them rather than try to do straight-up adaptations. To speculate further on whether TV’s Armageddon is similar to the comics Armageddon 2001 would lead to potential spoilers, and anyway, there’s little to indicate that’s what is really happening. Well, except for the fact that TV Armageddon includes two time travelers plus another hero who has plenty of experience with time travel. You can’t blame us for going there, folks!
However, with the knowledge of Tony Curran’s Despero now in the mix, it’s increasingly likely that the above speculation is going right out the window.
