Do not miss: DC Comics Christmas specials to enjoy this holiday season
What do you get when you take a Christmas Carol, and transfer to one of DC Comics’ best-remembered series? You get the answer in the ninth episode of the fifth season: Lexmas.
In the midst of his campaign for a seat in the United States Senate, Lex Luthor is shot, leaving him in a coma.
Luthor, in that trance, can see his dead mother, Lilian, who makes him see the life he could have chosen if he had made the right decisions. In this life, Lex and Lana are married, and are expecting his second child, in an apparent normal life after Lionel took Lex out of his will.
Christmas with the Joker
One of the most remembered Christmases in the DC Comics animated series is that of the Christmas with the Joker chapter, from the first season of Batman: The Animated Series, where the villain does not abandon his psychopathic instincts despite the December holidays.
The clown prince of crime terrorizes Gotham City and challenges Batman and Robin to find his hidden television studio and free his hostages – Commissioner Gordon, Detective Bullock and journalist Summer Gleeson – before midnight.
Justice League: Comfort and Joy
The stories of the first two seasons of Justice League had two-episode plots, but in the second season episode Comfort and Joy, three Christmas stories are told in just one episode.
As Green Lantern and Hawkgirl party at a bar, before getting into a fight there, the Flash and the Ultra-Humanite put their differences aside to bring moments of joy to the children of an orphanage. Superman and Martian Manhunter celebrate Christmas at the Kents’ farm, where J’on J’onzz discovers how humans commemorate these dates.
Arrow: Year’s End
The first Christmas of the Arrowverse had its overtones of action and drama, but that does not prevent Oliver Queen from remembering the true purpose of Christmas, reflection and reunion with the family, taking into account that he has been missing for years.
Oliver discovers that after his disappearance, his mother and sister no longer celebrate Christmas, so the emerald archer decides to organize a big New Year’s Eve party. Meanwhile, Tommy will try to get Laurel to spend the holidays with him, but she will remind him that at this time it was her deceased sister Sarah’s birthday.
Running to Stand Still
An old acquaintance from the history of the Flash on television returns to his old ways at Christmas parties, when crime seems to be relentless, especially in an episode where adrenaline and drama mix in a Christmas cocktail.
When Barry Allen finds out that Joe’s daughter Francine had a child he never told him about. That son is Wally West, who makes his debut in the series, while the Trickster (Mark Hamill) is released from prison with a simple purpose, to kill The Flash once and for all.
