The CW’s superheroes are about to face a crisis of infinite proportions, as the largest gathering of costumed crime fighters to ever assemble on the small screen come together for a four-night crossover event, which kicks off tonight on ‘Supergirl’ then carries over onto ‘The Flash’ tomorrow night, ‘Arrow’ on Wednesday and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ on Thursday.  The crossover is loosely based on DC Comics’ 1989 miniseries ‘Invasion!’ and introduces malevolent alien race The Dominators.

In this short clip, ‘Supergirl’ star Melissa Benoist expresses her excitement about the event, including what it was like to be gathered in a room full of so many colorfully dressed individuals and what it was like to “fly” in front of the other heroes.

There is a slight *SPOILER* in the clip, so be warned.  It takes place in one of the “behind the scenes” clips of the making of the episode.

Check out the video below:

Yes, as you saw in the clip, ‘The Flash’s Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is seen in full Vibe regalia.  It looks like this emergency situation is going to force Cisco to go full-on superhero after struggling with his mysterious abilities for the past two seasons.

IT’S HEROES VS. ALIENS IN THIS EPIC CROSSOVER EVENT — When aliens called the Dominators attack Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) speeds over to Star City to ask the Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) for help in stopping them. Realizing the battle against the Dominators is bigger than they thought, they track down the Legends of Tomorrow, and Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) create a breach to bring back a secret weapon – Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist). Once all of the super friends are assembled, they come up with a plan to attack but a shocking secret related to Flashpoint is revealed and suddenly no one is sure who they can trust. Meanwhile, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) wants to join the battle against the aliens but Iris (Candice Patton) tells him he’s not ready. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.

The mega-crossover kicks off tonight on The CW, with ‘Supergirl’ then continues with ‘The Flash’ on Tuesday, ‘Arrow’ on Wednesday and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ on Thursday.  All shows begin at 8pm EST.

Are you ready for the Invasion?
