Rather than have the 'episodic' crossovers like it did in the beginning, I'd adapt the almost movie-like stories they've done in later crossovers. My main goal of this crossover, is to sort of fix the mistakes they made with Hawkgirl and Hawkman. I'd have Hawkgirl be more of the hot-headed character we know and love from Justice League Unlimited and I'm going to try and make Hawkman less creepy.


The crossover opens to Ancient Egypt where Khufu goes to rendezvous with his lover, Priestess Chay-Ara. As the two enjoy a romantic evening far from the watchful eyes of the palace, they gaze upon the stars and watch as a ship falls from the skies and crashes in the desert. The two lovers investigate the crash and find two winged-individuals inside the crash. Khufu and Chay-Ara try to help them, pulling from the wreckage. A man approaches from behind, a fellow Priest known as Hath-Set. Hath-Set, who has fallen in love with Chay-Ara from a distance, instantly becomes suspicious of their presence there. Deducing the two were engaged in a tryst, he jealously confronts them and a fight breaks out, resulting in Hath-Set stabbing the lovers with a piece of metal from the wreckage of the ship. As the two laying dying, the alien ship explodes, engulfing all three in a wave of energy.

In the year 2015, archaeologist Carter Hall dreams of the crash. Investigating a dig in Egypt, he finds the ship after years of searching, he finds the wreckage of the ship along with the skeletal remains of the aliens, their armor still intact. As he touches, the ship, he gets flashes of his pervious lives, leading all the back to Khufu. As he breaks out of his trance, he utters a single name: "Kendra". A.R.G.U.S. then arrives to take the ship and investigate, covering up the existence of alien life. Carter agues to no avail and departs, having mentioned to smuggle the armor out of the camp.

Across the world, Kendra Saunders is doing different trials and tests at S.T.A.R. Labs to try and learn the full extent of her powers, with the Flash Family believing her to be a metahuman despite the fact that she wasn't in Central City during the Particle Accelerator explosion. Meanwhile, Hath-Set, still alive and well thousands of years later, arrives in Central City looking to kill Kendra. After he attacks Kendra and Cisco Ramon, Barry Allen takes Kendra to Star City and enlists the help of Oliver Queen and his team to protect her.

The team contacts Nyssa al Ghul for information on Hath-Set who informs them that he immortal. Later, Kendra is kidnapped by Carter, but Barry and Oliver rescue her and capture him. He introduces himself and explains that he and Kendra are the reincarnations of Khufu and Chay-Ara, with their reincarnation and Hath-Set's immortality is the result of the alien energy wave that engulfed them in the explosion. Kendra and Carter are destined to die, be reborn, and find each other in each lifetime. Carter also reveals that Hath-Set has killed the pair several times, each time growing stronger.

Meanwhile, Hath-Set breaks into the A.R.G.U.S. facility holding the finds from the excavational dig and acquires the Staff of Horus, which he used during his time as a priest. Kendra unlocks her abilities and becomes Hawkgirl and the team decides to regroup in Central City. There, Nyssa manages to orchestrate a meeting between Hath-Set, Barry, and Oliver. Hath-Set demands they turn over Kendra and Carter or he will destroy both Central City and Star City with the Staff of Horus, which was imbued with energy from the explosion.

Barry and Oliver devise a plan to deliver Kendra and Carter as a ruse to get close enough to Hath-Set to destroy the staff. The plan goes horribly wrong and Hath-Set quickly overcomes the element of surprise and kills both her and Carter before using the staff to destroy Central City. Barry escapes and runs fast enough to go back in time to the point of the original negotiation before everyone else dies. Barry informs Oliver of his time travel and the mistakes that led to defeat. They change their approach to the plan, letting the other members of Team Arrow and the Flash Family assist them and Barry is able to steal the staff. He and Oliver use it on Hath-Set, turning him into ashes. Kendra and Carter decide to use their powers to help others in another city, and see if they truly are meant to be.

As the two teams celebrate in Jitters, Oliver runs into an old classmate named Sandra Hawke, whom he had an affair with until she told him she was pregnant and subsequently has miscarriage. When he sees her with her son, Connor, he realizes she faked the miscarriage - and he has a son.

Not a lot different, but making corrections where necessary (Hath-Set and Vandal Savage not being the same character, the Olicity mess, etc). I do like the idea of seeing what Carter's life was like before he got his memories back.
