Clark Kent (Earth-167): Hmm. You're not Lex.
Lex Luthor: Maybe not the Lex you know. The multiverse has a way of aligning fates.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): What'd you do to those people?
Lex Luthor: Sent them back to their flying tin can in the sky. Let's hope they learn from this teachable moment. Now I'm here for you, not them.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Whoever you are, I'm just a guy working on this farm.
Lex Luthor: You will always be my greatest enemy on any Earth. It's written in the stars and in this book or I wouldn't know that on this Earth Clark Kent is Superman. Where I come from, that would be ridiculous. He can't see past his glasses.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Hmm. So what do you want?
Lex Luthor: Why, to kill you of course and every version of you across the multiverse so that if the, uh, super friends somehow find a way save existence there won't be a single Superman stand in my way.
[Lex brings out Kryptonite on Clark and he's unfazed, Clark takes it and throws it away]
Lex Luthor: That's Kryptonite.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Which has no effect on me ever since I gave up my powers.
Lex Luthor: You gave up your powers?
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Can't say I miss these chats.
Lex Luthor: You were basically a God. You could fly. You could see through walls. You had super strength.
[steps on a toy tractor]
Lex Luthor: You're kidding me.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): That is worth more than any superpower.
Lois Lane: Hey, Clark. The girls want to show you what they've made.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): [looking away] I think it's time for you...
[stops Lex's punch and punches him]
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Ah. Still stronger.
Lex Luthor: You took all the fun out of it. Enjoy your slice of mediocrity while you can, Clark. You're all doomed anyway.
Lois Lane: Hey. Was somebody here or were you talking to the cows again?
Clark Kent (Earth-167): That was Lex Luthor from another Earth. Apparently, the multiverse is ending.
Lois Lane: Ha ha! Smallville, you made a funny. It's taken you about a decade, but you're getting the hang of it.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Hmm. What'd the girls make?
Lois Lane: A mess. They can't wait for you to see it.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Oh. That sounds like a job for... us.
Iris West-Allen: [arriving at the Kent Farm on Earth-167, they see Clark] Is that him?
Lois Lane: It's either him or the buff guy on the paper towel rolls.
Clark Kent: [sees Clark chopping wood] I can do that with one bare hand.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Hello.
Clark Kent: You are Clark Kent, right?
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Can I help you?
Iris West-Allen: Uh, yeah, hopefully. Um, so, uh, this universe and an infinite number of others is in the process of blinking out of existence, and there are 7 people in all of space and time who can supposedly...
Lois Lane: Lex Luthor is gonna try and kill you.
Iris West-Allen: Lois.
Lois Lane: He is.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Lex?
Iris West-Allen: Yeah.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): I didn't know the President was in town.
Ray Palmer: You can't just hijack the Waverider. Our crew is still on there.
Mar Novu: If there is any chance at surviving the Crisis, we need its technology.
Sara Lance: Hoo. Yeah. I kind of promised our crew they'd never have to do another crossover.
Lex Luthor: [arriving on the Kent Farm] Hello, old friend.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Who are you?
Lex Luthor: Don't you know me, Clark? I'm Lex Luthor.
Kara Danvers: [meeting Earth-99's Luke Fox] Earth-1 villain?
Kate Kane: Only friend, actually.
Kara Danvers: Oh. Well, at least he's cute.
Harbinger: Is anyone here?
Leonard A.I.: Welcome aboard. My name is Leonard, an interactive, artificial intelligence programmed to operate this vessel's critical systems.
Harbinger: I know who you are.
Leonard A.I.: Always please to meet a fan, but you are trespassing. Any preference on you'd like to die?
Mick Rory: What he's saying is, flame or frost?
Harbinger: Come with me, Mick Rory, and I'll promise you'll have plenty of beer to drink and stories to tell. The multiverse needs saving, and its heroes need a ship.
Mick Rory: Hmm. You had me at "beer".
Iris West-Allen: [finding Earth-96's Clark] Uh, he looks just like Ray Palmer.
Clark Kent: Who?
[glancing at Earth-38 Clark]
Clark Kent: Hey. Nice glasses.
Sara Lance: So I miss one group chat, and now there's Paragons, and I'm supposed to be one of them.
Mia Smoak: Yep. And Barry and I are gonna use a Lazarus Pit to bring my dad back.
Sara Lance: Mia, it's not that simple. The Lazarus Pit isn't some magical mud bath where you get your soul and a cup of cucumber water at the end. You lose your humanity.
Mia Smoak: Nyssa told me everything I need to know about Lazarus Pits. And she told me everything I need to know about you.
Sara Lance: Well, why don't you share your opinion when it's about your life?
Mia Smoak: Why don't you share your opinion when it's about your dad?
Sara Lance: We can't screw this up, okay? When we bring Oliver back, I need you to promise me you can bring back his soul.
John Constantine: Yeah. One thing at a time, right, love?
Sara Lance: I need to hear you say it.
John Constantine: I'll do it.
Sara Lance: Thank you.
John Constantine: To the best of my abilities.
Ray Palmer: [seeing Clark is his doppelganger] Oh. So, uh, do you have a gluten sensitivity, too?
Clark Kent: No. Not that I know of.
Lex Luthor: Congratulations. You're a ringer for a filthy Kryptonian. Your mom must be so proud.
Iris West-Allen: We need you to come back with us. I know this sounds insane, but... you might be the key to saving the Multiverse.
Clark Kent: That's actually one of the least insane thing's I've ever heard.
[changes into Superman]
Superman: First, we stay and face Luthor.
Superman: And you won't do it alone.
Lois Lane: We won't let him kill you.
Lex Luthor: Oh, I've moved on from that. Never thought I'd say this, but I'm tired of killing Supermen. So much more making Superman kill Superman.
John Constantine: You sure you want to do this? A Lazarus Pit's nasty business.
Mia Smoak: We're sure.
[Constantine lights two cigarettes]
Barry Allen: We don't have a lot time, so could you please take your smoke break later, maybe just do the spell?
John Constantine: Simmer down, speedy. This is the spell.
Bruce Wayne: A paragon of courage?
Bruce Wayne: Yeah. Right. I hate to break this to you, but... you're a few years too late. Here. Read this.
[hands Kate a newspaper article]
Kate Kane: [looks at the article and becomes confused] Don't get me wrong, but... a reign of terror?
Bruce Wayne: It's like a wise man once said: "Battle not with monsters, unless you become a monster". I've lost track of how many people I've killed over the years.
Kate Kane: The Bruce I knew had a code.
Bruce Wayne: You start with a code. You hang on to it with every self-righteous breath. But then you take one life. Then another, and another, and another. You'll see. My Kate... my Kate put on the cape. Thought she'd succeed where I failed! But all she did was get herself killed!
Kate Kane: Well, I'm not her. And I never will be her.
Bruce Wayne: And I'm not an old man held together with wire and metal!
Kate Kane: Fine. Be that way. I don't care. You're nothing but a broken ticked off old hermit, waiting to die in this 11-bedroom, 7-bath coffin, but apparently, you're needed. I'm giving you the chance to be a hero again and save not just Gotham, but... the whole damn universe!
Superman: You don't belong here.
Superman: We're here because we need your help.
Superman: Help? I couldn't even save my wife, my friends. I don't care about your universe.
Lois Lane: Yes, you do. You're the Paragon of Truth.
Superman: There's only one truth. I serve Lex Luthor.
Superman: Kal, stop.
Lex Luthor: An entire universe wiped from existence distilled down to a computer graphic. Gotta say, missing that "wow" factor.
Kara Danvers: Lena killed you.
Lex Luthor: Yeah. Only for a little while.
[clicking his tongue]
Lex Luthor: Tck.
Mar Novu: [she prepares to fire her heat vision] Everyone has a part to play, even Lex Luthor.
Kara Danvers: You did this? You brought that... poisonous snake back?
Mar Novu: His destiny was unfulfilled. Lex Luthor still has an important role to play.
Kara Danvers: So you can revive him, but you can't bring back Oliver?
Mar Novu: I restored Luthor long before the Crisis caused my power to wane.
Kara Danvers: And what about those innocent lives on Earth-38? Did they not have destinies to fulfill? I'm sorry, but I can't trust a man who thinks Lex Luthor is an ally.
Kate Kane: All I got from that is that if you die again, that dude can't bring you back.
Lex Luthor: And you are?
Kate Kane: New. And unfriendly.
Mar Novu: The Paragon of Courage is known only as the bat of the future.
Kate Kane: Seriously, where do you get these names and pseudo names, anyway?
Mar Novu: I enlisted the assistance of Felicity Smoak, who earned the wisdom of a second book.
Clark Kent: That's a lot of books.
Mar Novu: The Tome of the Guardians. It revealed the names of Ms. Zor-El and Ms. Lance, as well as the other two.
Lois Lane: Bummed-out Kryptonian and Future Bat, which technically means...
Mar Novu: Earth-99 exists in a future time where Bruce Wayne has dedicated himself, body and soul, to fighting crime.
Ray Palmer: I'm sorry. Go back. Bruce Wayne is the Dark Knight?
Kate Kane: If we could all keep that to ourselves, that'd be great.
Mar Novu: The path to find him will lead you to the Paragon of Courage.
Kate Kane: Okay. Who wants to meet Batman?
Mar Novu: You have all lost a great hero.
Barry Allen: The wrong hero.
Mar Novu: I do not disagree. You have suffered a horrible loss, but you have every reason not to lose hope. Seven, in fact. Across space and time...
[Jonathan begins crying; Lois give him to Clark]
Mar Novu: Across space and time exist seven heroes, beings of the purest will who can ultimately...
[Jonathan continues crying]
Clark Kent: [passing him to Kara] Sorry. You wanna try?
Kara Danvers: What?
Mar Novu: Beings of the purest will who can ultimately...
Kara Danvers: It's not working.
Kate Kane: [Kara tries to pass him over] Nope.
[Kara gives him to Mick, and he stops crying]
Mar Novu: Beings of the purest will who can ultimately defeat the Anti-Monitor...
Lois Lane: [quietely urging Mick to leave] Go, go, go.
Mar Novu: ...and help save the multiverse. They are known as Paragons.
Barry Allen: Paragons? And you're just dropping this on us now?
Mar Novu: I only recently learned of their existence by consulting the Book of Destiny.
Barry Allen: How? We destroyed it last year.
Mar Novu: [as he conjures a hologram of the book, Lyla winces in pain] After Oliver's early demise, I went back into the time stream and retrieved it intact. It is now safely stored in this ship's library.
Barry Allen: [sarcastic] So, it's what, plan B? That's comforting.
Kate Kane: Where is Luke taking Kara?
Bruce Wayne: The library. Just thought we'd get to know each other again.
Kate Kane: You know, the Bruce I knew wore a different kind of suit.
Bruce Wayne: A lifetime of injuries. But you've aged well... for a dead girl.
Kate Kane: I died? When?
Bruce Wayne: Five years ago.
Kate Kane: Oh. But I've never been a ghost before.
Bruce Wayne: Hmm. Plenty of ghosts in this place... but you're not one of them. Clayface is a puddle of mud. And last time I checked, Jane Doe was locked in Arkham. So who the hell are you?
Kate Kane: Can you, uh, can you sit in that thing? Cause we're gonna need you for this.
Lois Lane: We have a new problem. It turns out Lex Luthor is alive.
Clark Kent: What?
Lois Lane: According to Iris, Lex is jumping from universe to universe, killing off Supermen.
Clark Kent: If one of them's the Kryptonian Paragon...
Lois Lane: It's game over. We need to find this Earth's Superman before Lex jumps here and offs him.
Clark Kent: [seeing a television screen on the side of a building with breaking news of Superman's death] I think it's a little late for that.
Lois Lane: Disappeared into thin air. Lex killed him and breached out.
Clark Kent: He won't stop until we're all dead.
Mick Rory: [reading to Jonathan] "Once he awoke her desire, he was hers to explore willingly."
Ray Palmer: Is that your...
Mick Rory: "Caged Passion", my romance novel.
Leonard A.I.: Your only novel, self-published.
Mick Rory: Still counts.
Ray Palmer: Uh, Mick, your book doesn't sound too kid-friendly.
Mick Rory: It's very friendly. Kid loves it. Look at him.
Kate Kane: Wow. That's a really impressive six-pack.
Luke Fox: Sorry, do I know you?
Kara Danvers: [prompting her] No.
Kate Kane: No. But I know you. Well, a-a different... like, a less this version of you. I-I'm Kate Kane. I'm... I'm Bruce's cousin.
Luke Fox: [shutting the door in her face] Yeah, no.
Lois Lane: [seeing a collection of plaques on Clark's wall] What is this? Perry White, Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane? Why are all these names on your wall?
Clark Kent: A... reject from Gotham felt that we didn't cover him enough, so he played what he called a practical joke and gassed the building.
Iris West-Allen: All these people died?
Clark Kent: [nodding] My friends, my wife. I lost everyone in one fell swoop.
Lois Lane: Almost as if you've been through more loss than any mortal man could endure.
Iris West-Allen: I think we just found our Paragon.
Bruce Wayne: The Kate I knew didn't trust anyone, let alone a Kryptonian.
Kate Kane: I don't know what happened to you, Bruce, but it ends now.
Bruce Wayne: Yes. Let it end. Let it all end. This world's not worth saving in any universe.
Kate Kane: If you really think that, you're gonna have to kill one more person. Me.
Bruce Wayne: Don't be a fool!
[tries to hit Kate, but Kate overpowers him by kicking him toward an electric panel, and Bruce gets electrocuted. Kate rushes to help him, but Kara stops her]
Supergirl: Don't! He'll kill you!
Bruce Wayne: [with his last breath] Kate... listen to me. There is no hope.
Sara Lance: Are you sure that you wanna do this?
Mia Smoak: More than anything.
Sara Lance: Yeah. Your father wouldn't take no for an answer, either. When I think of all the stupid stuff we got into when we were your age, it's amazing we didn't get arrested more.
Mia Smoak: Arrested more?
Sara Lance: But you're way smarter than him. You get that from your mom.
Bruce Wayne: [leading Kate into the Batcave] See for yourself. I can barely walk, let alone wear that again.
Kate Kane: Do you understand how many people, how many worlds, are going to die?
Bruce Wayne: Well, if they're anything like this world, maybe that's for the best.
Kate Kane: How can you even say that?
Bruce Wayne: There was no hope for this world.
Supergirl: [entering] That's because you killed Superman. This guy's not a paragon of anything. I was right.
[shows Kate Clark's broken glasses]
Supergirl: We can't trust the Monitor.
Kate Kane: What did you do?
Bruce Wayne: Clearly what you couldn't!
Mick Rory: Kid was a piece of cake.
[giving Jonathan to Lois]
Mick Rory: Here.
Lois Lane: There's someone I want you to meet.
Clark Kent: Hi there, handsome guy. Wow. He looks just like my son Jason.
Mar Novu: Well done. You have succeeded in finding the Paragon of Truth. Lex Luthor played his role. He led you to him.
Kara Danvers: [entering with Kate] Yeah? How many more people did he hurt to do that? You think you're a good guy, but you're not.
Lex Luthor: I think he's kind of neat.
Kara Danvers: Okay. Well, we still only have three. Bruce Wayne wasn't the paragon of anything, so...
[seeing Earth-96 Clark]
Kara Danvers: Whoa, Ray. You are looking jacked.
Clark Kent: No, no, no, no. This is your cousin, sort of.
Kara Danvers: [turning to look at Ray and back, her jaw dropping] Huh.
Kara Danvers: What are those?
Luke Fox: Mementos from Batman's greatest victories.
Kara Danvers: You mean trophies. Um...
[sees broken glasses tainted with blood]
Luke Fox: Yeah. Those belonged to Superman, his alter ego at least.
Kara Danvers: Bruce killed this Earth's Superman?
Luke Fox: Who do you think put him in that exoskeleton? Yeah. Big mistake.
Harbinger: I thought the Legends of Earth-74 all retired.
Mick Rory: We did. Well, some. One died. No one was using the ship, so I took it. It's my ship.
Harbinger: Why are you here?
Mick Rory: I like the quiet.
Leonard A.I.: He's trying to be a writer.
Mick Rory: Shut up.
Leonard A.I.: Of romance novels. Well, you can see how that's going.
Mick Rory: It's going fine, you piece of...
Leonard A.I.: You're basically living out of your car.
Kara Danvers: If the book can rewrite destiny, can it bring back Earth-38, or any of the other Earths?
Mar Novu: Trying to recreate an entire word would surely drive one to madness.
Mia Smoak: What about my dad? Could it bring him back?
Mar Novu: I wish it could. While Oliver Queen was to die in this Crisis, this is not how I saw events unfold. But as the Anti-Monitor gets stronger, I grow weaker.
Mar Novu: We must find all seven Paragons.
Lois Lane: How about, like, a hint?
Mar Novu: I have four. Kara Zor-El, despite all you have endured, you are the Paragon of Hope.
Kara Danvers: Well, you might want to double-check your omnipotence, 'cause I'm not feeling that hopeful right now.
Mar Novu: Sara Lance is the Paragon of Destiny.
Ray Palmer: Oh. Well, that makes sense. Captain of time travel and all that.
Mar Novu: I have only descriptions for the other two Paragons. One is of a second Kryptonian, who is said to have suffered a greater loss than most mortal men could endure. Today, he stands as the Paragon of Truth.
Kate Kane: Lex Luthor; kind of a dick, huh?
Kara Danvers: When I think of all those people on my Earth that we wanted to save but couldn't, it just feels unfair.
Kate Kane: Look. A day ago, I didn't think my life could get any worse. My sister murdered my stepmom a-and framed my dad for it.
Kara Danvers: That's dark, even for Gotham.
Kate Kane: I'm fighting for a chance to make it right, and this fourth Paragon, my cousin Bruce on... another Earth, finding him might help me get that chance.
Kara Danvers: Only if you believe the Monitor.
Kate Kane: What kind of talk is that from the Paragon of Hope?
[taking an extrapolator out of her jacket pocket]
Kate Kane: Come with me. Let's go save the universe.
Kara Danvers: We managed to get billions of people to safety. There has to be a way we can undo this. Oliver, my mom, Argo, Earth - ugh - all those Earths, all those people who vanished. There has to be a way we can get them back.
Sara Lance: Or we focus on stopping it from happening to every other universe.
[Lyla appears in a flash of light]
Sara Lance: Oh, hey. Welcome to the joy zone. Where's Dig?
Harbinger: At home with JJ. He still doesn't know about Oliver.
Sara Lance: Lyla, you...
Harbinger: I know. I just... I need to figure out how to tell him.
Sara Lance: Never thought we'd be pouring one out for Oliver.
Kara Danvers: We're not gonna wait for Barry?
Kate Kane: I don't think he's ready to say goodbye.
Sara Lance: So, anybody wanna... say some words for Oliver?
Kara Danvers: He sacrificed himself for me and Barry. Shouldn't have done that.
Sara Lance: His sacrifice saved a billion more people. Let's not call that a mistake. Look, Oliver died the way he lived. A hero.
Harbinger: [finding Lex with the Book of Destiny] You're not supposed to have that.
Lex Luthor: And man was never meant to fly, but here we are.
[opening the book]
Lex Luthor: Goodbye, Superman. All of you.
[closing the book, he opens a breach with an extrapolator and escapes]
Mar Novu: [entering] Lex Luthor has the Book of Destiny.
Harbinger: He's going to use it to kill Supermen. If he kills the Paragon, we're all doomed.
[seeing that he appears unconcerned]
Harbinger: What have you done?
Mar Novu: As I said, everyone has a part to play.
Luke Fox: You need to leave, now.
Bruce Wayne: Don't be so rude, Luke.
[coming down the stairs in a metal exoskeleton]
Bruce Wayne: You'll have to forgive him. We're not used to having guests.
[seeing and recognizing her]
Bruce Wayne: Kate.
Kate Kane: Bruce?
Barry Allen: I'm glad you're here.
Iris West-Allen: Me, too. From what you told me, the Monitor was wrong about Oliver, so I don't know, Barry. Maybe he's wrong about you, too. Maybe... you're not supposed to die.
Barry Allen: Listen, Oliver told me about how he brought Sara and his sister back to life using something called a Lazarus Pit.
Iris West-Allen: I don't know. That sounds too good to be true.
Barry Allen: Well, it... I mean, it is. It turns out Thea destroyed all the Pits on this Earth, but there are more Earths to choose from.
Iris West-Allen: I know that you want Oliver back more than anything, but this is...
Barry Allen: He can't be dead. Not him.
Iris West-Allen: Okay. Funny enough, the Monitor gave me a mission of my own. To find our hopeless Kryptonian Paragon. Heh.
Barry Allen: Did you ever think this would be our life?
Iris West-Allen: I will take whatever life with you I can get.
Clark Kent: Do you have a second?
Clark Kent: Sure. For a citizen of Metropolis, always.
[giving him a business card]
Clark Kent: If you wouldn't mind contacting my assistant.
Clark Kent: It's about Lex Luthor.
Barry Allen: What is it? Some kind of star map?
John Constantine: Parallel Earths spread out by vibrational frequency. We are well and truly bolloxed. So many Earths already gone, and more vanishing as we speak.
[chanting in a foreign language]
John Constantine: I give you the needle in the celestial haystack; an Earth with a functioning Lazarus Pit.
Mia Smoak: Okay. Well, now what?
John Constantine: [vanishing the map into nothing] Ah. Perhaps a thank you and a little well-earned awe for a magical job well done, eh?
Mia Smoak: How about I thank you when you bring my dad back?
Anti-Monitor: Lyla Michaels, Harbinger, I need you.
Harbinger: Who are you?
Anti-Monitor: Universe after universe has fallen before my power. World after world consumed. With every death, I steal my mirror's strength, and mine grows every stronger. Who am I? I am the Anti-Monitor. Come, Harbinger, there is work to be done.
Kate Kane: [Kara brings her a beer] Do these things even work on you?
Kara Danvers: Not really, but you looked like you could use a drinking buddy.
Luke Fox: How did you say you knew Kate?
Kara Danvers: I didn't. We're still sort of...
[subtly scanning the room with her x-ray vision]
Kara Danvers: ...getting to know each other.
Superman: You have to get Luthor out of your head, Kal. The multiverse needs you!
Superman: And what about what I need?
Lois Lane: Clark, this isn't you. Not the real Clark, the one that Perry White respected and Jimmy Olsen looked up to and Lois loved.
Superman: You know nothing about me or them!
Superman: [escaping and blocking his heat vision] We know more than you think.
Lois Lane: They would want your memories of them to lift you up, not drive you to darkness. That's the truth, Clark, and the truth means everything to you. Remember who you are.
Lex Luthor: [using the Book of Destiny to make two Clarks fight each other] This should be fun.
Lois Lane: [knocking him out] You can read about it later.
Lois Lane: Help me with the book.
[after a bit of struggle, they manage to open it]
Lois Lane: Picture the Clark that we met. Focus on what the universe knows he's meant to be.
[her Clark crashes through the window, and Kingdom Come Superman follows]
Superman: There's only room in this world for one of us.
Sara Lance: The mine is ours.
Jonah Hex: The hell it is.
Sara Lance: Guess you were gonna get this scar eventually, Hex.
Jonah Hex: [she cuts his cheek with his knife] Ease up, cowgirl. The mine's yours. The mine's yours.
Sara Lance: [as she lets him go, Mia knocks him out] Oh. Thanks.
Mia Smoak: So, did you change your mind about us using the Pit, then?
Sara Lance: I miss Ollie, too.
Barry Allen: [breaching in with Constantine and Oliver's body, then seeing Hex on the ground] Did we miss something?
Sara Lance: Just put him in the water.
Kara Danvers: Hope, help, and compassion for all. That's what I'm gonna do for Earth-38.
Kate Kane: But Earth-38 is gone.
Kara Danvers: I know. But maybe I can use the Book of Destiny to bring it back.
Kate Kane: The Monitor said that would be really dangerous, Kara.
Kara Danvers: I know what he said. But what good is being the Paragon of Hope if I don't have any?
Mia Smoak: [after Oliver emerges from the Lazarus Pit] What, you tranqed him?
Sara Lance: I tranqed his body. We still have to get his soul back. That isn't Oliver yet.
Kate Kane: Time travelers, aliens. I've barely even started this whole vigilante thing. How am I a Paragon?
Kara Danvers: I've seen you in action. You saved me, and last year, you saved Oliver and Barry's asses, thank you very much.
Kate Kane: Accurate.
Kara Danvers: Hmm. How much you care, how hard you try, those are the things that make you a hero, not powers or time travel, and you may not feel like you have the experience now, but you have the heart. You're one of the bravest people I know.
Kate Kane: That Bruce was brave once, too, and he had heart. What if I end up like him?
Kara Danvers: You won't. You'll make your own destiny.
[giving her a picture]
Kara Danvers: I found this in his library.
Kate Kane: That's Beth and me. From Earth-99. I wish I knew her like this.
Kara Danvers: Maybe you still can.
Kate Kane: Sounds like the Paragon of Hope just got her hope back.
Kate Kane: Uh, so Batman tried to kill Kara, and now he's dead, so we're doomed.
Mar Novu: We shall see. I believe Dr. Palmer's work is now finished.
Ray Palmer: At least I think it is. I've never actually built a paragon detector before. Uh, okay. This will be the trial run to find the final three. Everyone might want to take a step back.
[they all do so as he turns it on]
Clark Kent: And which Earth is that?
Ray Palmer: None of them. That's us, this ship. Apparently, there are still a few bugs.
Mar Novu: Your machine works just fine. That light is the Paragon of Courage.
Kate Kane: Yeah, well, Bruce's body isn't on the ship, so...
Mar Novu: No, but you are. I said the path to Earth-99 would lead you to the Paragon, and that has come to pass. You are the bat of the future, Kate Kane. You are the Paragon of Courage.
John Constantine: Yep. This is the place.
[dipping his fingers into the Pit, then licking them off]
John Constantine: Yep. That's clean enough.
Clark Kent: I appreciate your concern, but this isn't my first go-around with Luthor. I can handle him.
Clark Kent: That's what you're not hearing. He's changed the game.
Iris West-Allen: Yeah. The... the book allows him to do anything. He made us vanish right in front of the last Clark.
Kate Kane: [referring to the late Superman] How was he a threat?
Bruce Wayne: Strange visitor from another planet comes to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men?
[advances toward Kara]
Bruce Wayne: Clark. Clark always said yes to anyone with a badge or a flag. He gave them too much power. My parents taught me a very different lesson. Life only makes sense if you force it to.
[picks up Kara and hurls her to the floor; Kate rushes over to Kara's side and they both watch helplessly as Bruce activates a kryptonite device on his right gauntlet]
Bruce Wayne: A little souvenir from the old home town.
[Kara begins to feel the effects of kryptonite slowly making her weak]
