Was thinking to myself about how many characters DC has had some sort of live-action version done and it really started to boggle my mind a bit more than I expected. Especially with how many Smallville tapped into and now the explosion with the CWverse. I'm going to try to list off just the heroes (though I'm not going to attempt the Lantern Corps) from the top-of-my-head, let me know who I've missed...

Batman
Robin
Captain Marvel
Spy Smasher
Vigilante (Greg Saunders)
Superman
Batgirl/Oracle
Wonder Woman
Wonder Girl
Plastic Man
Green Lantern (Hal)
Flash
Atom
Hawkman
Black Canary
Huntress
Supergirl
Superboy
Human Target
Fire
Ice
Martian Manhunter
Guy Gardner
Steel
Aquaman
Green Arrow
Impulse
Cyborg
Maxima*
Cosmic Boy
Lightning Lad
Saturn Girl
Brainiac 5 (?)
Red Tornado (Ma Hunkle)
Atom (Al Pratt)
Stargirl
Doctor Fate
Flash (Jay Garrick)
Green Lantern (Alan Scott)
Wildcat
Star-Spangled Kid
Sandman
Zatanna
Speedy (Mia)
Vigilante (Adrian Chase)
Mister Terrific
Wilddog
Ragman
Vixen
Vibe

Who is Mon-El in the comics anyways? He's the new character from Supergirl and I've never heard of him before.

He's a member of the Legion of Super Heroes. He is a Daxamite has powers very similar to a Kryptonian under a yellow sun except Daxamites react to lead the way Kryptonians do to Kryptonite.

D'oh! I had him on the mind just forgot to type it... Also forgot another mystic character in Swamp Thing...

I know Corrigan was on Constantine and Crispus Allen was on Gotham... Was it Spectre Spectre or one of those two?...

Not familiar with Jemm in the comics, is he a hero there?... Didn't list him because he was villain on the show.



Going in to add, now...

D'oh! Could've sworn I had Arsenal up there... Forgot about Atom Smasher and Bronze Tiger, didn't know about Dr. Light...

Isis?... DC did a licensed cmic back when the show was on but the pre-New 52 one was sort of based on that one but I think DreamWorks still owns the actual TV character... What the hell, I'll put her on there, too!

And Fone, I just found this little Mon-El primer online, might make more sense of things...

He was, he even had his own series.

Thanks for that!

Realized I'd forgotten Artemis. Added her, too.


So, looking over this list...

Arrow features all of the archers and martial artsists
Flash features all of the speedsters
Supergirl features all of the aliens
everything else falls to Legends of Tomorrow

Is that pretty much right?...
