In this new reality, the two heroes are the only ones that know that they are in the wrong lives and have each other’s powers.

 

The Elseworlds crossover event introduced audiences to Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, whose show will also be part of this crossover event alongside Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
