When Barry, Cisco, and Caitlin first finds Gideon, she tells them about Barry saying "Founding member of..." but is interrupted by Barry. What exactly will Barry be the founding member of?


Most probably the Justice League.

From the preview comic for Episode 20 of Season 1 of the Flash, The Trap on the CW's twitter, they reveal that Gideon was cut-off after she said he was the" Founding member of the Justice..."

  • I don't know if this will happen but i wonder how they are gonna present the Justice League in the CW-verse. Because the original leaguers do not exist in the same universe :| (nonetheless i hope they show something like this in the future seasons) – Shreedhar Jan 29 '18 at 14:32

    @Shreedhar Most online communities (reddit etc.) seem to agree this was simple fan-service and not actually anything to look forward to. – Edlothiad Jan 29 '18 at 14:34
  • that's disappointing but its true. – Shreedhar Jan 29 '18 at 14:42
  • @Shreedhar but Nora arc still dropping similar bombs and DCEU failing to make JL2 means arrowverse might get chance to do it – Steve Harrington Jan 22 '19 at 8:22

Could be Justice Society of America...Because Batman is the founding member of Justice League

  • In arrowverse Justice Society of America was established team in 1942 with no mention of Flash – Steve Harrington Jan 22 '19 at 7:59
  • Do you have some more evidence to support this answer? – Rand al'Thor Jan 22 '19 at 8:12
  • @Randal'Thor I have evidence only to prove it's not possible or need time travel retcon to make this answer right . – Steve Harrington Jan 22 '19 at 8:21
  • @DuckyMomo right 'cause time travel retcon is totally not a thing in the Arrowverse... :P – Jenayah Jan 22 '19 at 11:15

    One person is hardly a Leagueª: Batman is a Founding Member of the Justice League, and in some continuities he may be the Founder of the Justice League, but he can't be the Founding Member - all of the original League roster are Founding Members. (ª Notable exceptions to this rule include Jamie Madrox, but he's Marvel - and thus ineligible for the Justice League) – Chronocidal Jan 22 '19 at 11:31
