This year's Arrowverse crossover has gradually been teasing alternate universe versions of the various heroes of The CW's shared television universe and a multiversal incarnation of Oliver Queen and Barry Allen have just been named referencing a classic DC Comics duo.
Set photos have emerged online as the crossover films in Vancouver the biker versions of the DCTV heroes sporting leather jackets with the name "Trigger Twins" emblazoned across the back.
The Trigger Twins started as a crimefighting duo in the Wild West named Walt and Wayne Trigger debuting in 1951's All-Star Western #58 created by writer Robert Kanigher and artist Carmine Infantino. True to their name, they were identical twin brothers that often switched places to maintain their public personas while secretly playing to their individual strengths.
A modern incarnation of the Trigger Twins was created in 1993's Detective Comics #667 by writer Chuck Dixon and artist Graham Nolan. This version were two bank robbers that later became involved with organized crime before facing Gotham-based heroes like Azrael and Robin.
Judging by the set photos, which had originally surfaced yesterday, the DCTV incarnation won't be siblings at all but rather biker versions of Barry Allen and Oliver Queen. Whether this alternate universe duo still fights crime or are criminals themselves have yet to be seen.
DCTV returns to The CW this fall with The Flash leading the charge on Tuesday, October 9 with its Season 5 premiere at 8 PM ET/PT, followed by Season 2 of Black Lightning at 9 PM. Supergirl will follow the next week on Sunday, October 14 at 8 PM, with Arrow the next day on Monday, October 15 at 8 PM. Finally, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return on Monday, October 22 at 9 PM. The highly-anticipated “Elseworlds” crossover will air over three nights, from December 9 to December 11.
