    1Flashpoint Lasting For More Episodes
    Like Maybe Spending Half The Season On It Then He Changes It Back And This Would Have Made The Villain Conflict More Shorter After Complaints It Went Too long

  • 2A Nazi Version Of Barry Allen In The Crossover
    and we didn't need the reverse flash back
    He did a good performance as Salvitar, good have played another evil Flash

  • 3Wally Being The Flash For More Episodes
    During The Time Barry Was In The Speed Force And Him Being Brought Back In The First Episode

  • 4Laurel And Oliver's Relationship

  • 5Actually Having Oliver Queen Become Evil In Season 3
    On the show it turned out he was undercover but did bad stuff to maintain it, but it would have been better if he did get legitimately brainwashed and the team having to fight him in the final.

  • 6More Superman Appearances
    Of course the actor is busy but could have least have him do video calls to check up on Kara or make him a series regular

  • 7Supergirl Characters In The Crossovers
    The closest they got was in the musical crossover with martian and Mon El and Alex in the crisis Crossover
    Bring in Martian Manhunter on the next Crossover

  • 8Killing Off More Characters In The Season 5 Finale Of Arrow
    Felicity and diggle should have died
    Killing off more Characters would have made the island blowing up more impactful then just one Character we don't care about dying.
    They Only Killed Off William's Mother And Injured Two Characters Everybody Else Got Off The Island With No Problems

  • 9Black Siren Becoming Black Canary

  • 10How The Legends Are Used In The Crossovers
    They're not even going to be in the Batwoman Crossover
    i think the legends should be utlized more in the crossovers rather than them just coming in last minute to save the day cause we hardly get interactions with the legends characters and the other 3 shows characters

  • 11More Consequences Of Flashpoint On The Other Shows

  • 12Letting The Supporting Heroes Save The Day

    Especially Martian Manhunter, Cisco, Wally, And The Members Of Team Arrow

  • 13Where Is Maxwell Lord

  • 14Daxamite Invasion And The Final Battle
    Should have been more of the other characters teaming up

  • 15Alex's Hunt To Find Her Father
    Though It might be because of Dean's schedule
    They ignored it in favor of her coming out as gay and now in season 3 she is more worried about her break up with Maggie

  • 16Martian Manhunter Why Don't You Help More
    The behind the scenes reasons are the budget of using his powers and showing his true forms, but there needs to be better reasons why he doesn't help Kara more when she is in trouble.

  • 17Suicide Squad
    They couldn't be used because of the movies but they could have let them live and the studio did eventually let them use Superman

  • 24Opportunities For The Flash To Help Team Arrow
    Also it doesn't seem right that they don't ask for his help especially when the city or world is in danger

    Season 3 would have been better if we knew his identity earlier, Instead Of 3 episodes into the final

  • 29Nazi Versions Of Arrow And Supergirl Getting To Live

  • 30Supergirl Vs Superman
    Also should have been a better reason for why she was able to beat him besides being stronger since technically Superman was on earth longer and would be stronger because of that.
    Either Superman beating her or saving the fight for the final battle

  • 31Constantine Not Being A Main Cast Member On Legends In Season 3

  • 32Lance Not Getting To Talk To His Daughter Sara Before He Dies
