Westerns in Crisis

The Westerns in Crisis crossover continuity was trimmed from Westpahll. A surprising crossover brought the Westerns together with the Arrowverse along with many other franchises.

The Westerns

Alias Jesse James and The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw assembled large groups of western television characters.

This continuity is Thomas Holbrookʼs group 22 with several additions.

Since the birth of the greater Arrowverse, there have been many events to tie the series together.

A live-action Vixen appeared in Arrow Taken.

Jefferson Pierce, Black Lightning, appeared on The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.

Tying it together

In The Lone Ranger radio series, the character Dan Reid, Jr. was established as the nephew of the Lone Ranger. The Green Hornet radio series episode Too Hot to Handle established Dan Reid, Jr. was the father of Britt Reid. Both series were created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker. They would go on to create the two television series, though it is unclear if the relationship between the Long Ranger and Green Hornet made it to those adaptations.

Disconnecting from Westphall

Several television series in this continuity have been disconnected from Westphall.

Holy defenestration, Batman!

from ABC, NBC, and CBS

On Batman (1966) many actors have stuck their heads out of a window while Batman and Robin were climbing a wall. In rare cases, a character would stick his head out of a window. These are not crossovers by my definition, though others include them.

When Bill Dana stuck his head out of a window, he appeared as himself not Jose Jimenez from The Bill Dana Show.

The Addams Family (1964) was canceled several months prior to Lurch sticking his head out of a window on Batman.

Batman was set in the 60s, so when Colonel Klink from the World War II era's Hogan's Heroes stuck his head out of a window, he was very out of date.

A crossover did not happen when The Green Hornet (1966) and Kato stuck their heads out of a window in season two of Batman. Near the end of season two, there was a crossover when The Green Hornet and Kato appeared on the Batman episodes A Piece of the Action and Batman's Satisfaction. The Green Hornet is a nephew of The Lone Ranger in their respective radio shows. The radio shows were by the same company and then made into television series by the same people, so their crossover works.

This continuity is severed from Thomas Holbrookʼs DCU group.

Two different Dominic Alonzos

It was thought that Dominic Alonzo from Arrow The Undertaking was mentioned on Hawaii Five-0 Ho'oilina. However, the Dominic Alonzo from Hawaii Five-0 died eight years before the episode Ho'oilina. With a Dominic Alonzo appearing a year and a half earlier on Arrow, the two men with the same name are not the same man.
