Quake and Ghost Rider – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Though they started off at odds, by season’s end Robbie Reyes and Daisy Johnson were combining their elemental powers to take out any baddie that crossed their paths… including their LMD lookalikes!

This mega team-up event saw characters from Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow join forces to save the world from alien invaders, The Dominators.

Danny Rand, Colleen Wing, & Claire Temple – Iron Fist

Marvel's Iron Fist

Three is the magic number, and Rosario Dawson’s bad-ass nurse made a great third wheel when she joined forces with the two mystical martial artists.

Supergirl & Superman – Supergirl


Tyler Hoechlin delighted fans of Supergirl‘s second season with his wholesome turn as Clark Kent/Superman, when the Universe’s most over-achieving cousins finally made saving humanity a family affair.

Felicity and Helix – Arrow


Felicity’s decision to work with ‘Hacktivists’, the Helix organisation, hinted at a darker path to come for this member of Team Arrow.

The Legion of Doom – Legends of Tomorrow


The original Coalition of Chaos, Legends of Tomorrow‘s second season brought together antagonists from The Flash and Arrow to create a deadly and ruggedly handsome supergroup.

Kara & Barry – The Flash Crossover Musical Episode


Barry Allen AKA The Flash was joined by his pal Kara Danvers AKA Supergirl this year as the super friends demonstrated special abilities of different kind…in the form of song and dance. Aww.

Daenerys Targaryen & Tyrion Lannister – Game of Thrones


Last season finally saw the formation of an unlikely alliance between the The Imp and The Mother of Dragons, one which might ultimately unite the Seven Kingdoms.

Alexandria/Hilltop/The Kingdom – The Walking Dead
