Welcome to round two of our CarterMatt Favorite Arrowverse Hero polling series! In the first round, we brought you 16 of the most-notable heroes within the CW – DC Comics world, and now, we’re down to the top eight.
In this poll, we’re spotlighting the first group of four competing for a spot in the finals — Kara Danvers and J’onn J’onzz of Supergirl, Felicity Smoak of Arrow, and then finally Sara Lance of Legends of Tomorrow, who also has plenty of Arrow episodes under her belt. We’re expecting a fun showdown here between these four, but only two will move on to the finals!
Voting Rules – Voting will remain open until Tuesday, July 23 at 3:00 p.m. Pacific time; the advancing heroes will take part in round 3, which will begin on July 24. You can vote however many times you’d like, but as a reminder, two heroes are moving on. If your favorite is not in the lead, they still have a chance of advancing.
Kara Danvers – Since we started the first round, we’ve learned that Supergirl will be sporting a new costume for the upcoming season! It’s another sign of the show’s evolution, and also Kara’s as she continues to move into another phase of her life on National City. She may be a little more jaded than she was in season 1, but she still believes in the good of the people around her. That sense of optimism and hope is just as important as any power.
J’onn J’onzz – Moving into season 5, J’onn himself could find himself facing new challenges and mysteries all his own. He’s spent the past year working to find himself separate from the responsibilities of the DEO. Where is that leaving him now? What is he going to find the most valuable thing to his life? He will continue to be a source of great guidance, and we’re hoping for more Martian Manhunter action sequences.
Felicity Smoak – Felicity’s arc for Arrow season 8 is still a mystery, largely because there may be no real arc at all. The Arrowverse’s greatest tech hero said goodbye at the end of season 7 to venture into a new world — and potentially find Oliver Queen in the process. We still want to believe that we’ll see her at least one more time; even if we don’t, it’s hard to even put into words the impact she had on this world — she’s one of the best examples of “not all heroes wear capes” out there.
Sara Lance – Technically, Sara also doesn’t have a cape, but she does sport a costume (not as often as some would like, given that the Legends of Tomorrow find themselves making an array of other outfit changes). This is a strange week for the Legends — filming is underway and yet, there is no official cast panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Caity Lotz will be there for a separate panel and will do a great job carrying the torch — her adaptability in transforming the Sara character is a huge part of the series’ overall greatness.
