CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS big bad The Anti-Monitor revealed by The CW

The look combines the sensibilities of the Arrowverse with artist George Pérez's original design for the character.


The Crisis on Infinite Earths reveals keep coming. Following this week’s episodes of The Flash and Arrow, which heavily featured an anti-matter wave that will destroy all positive matter in its path, The CW has released, via EW, a first-look photo at the big bad of the forthcoming crossover, the Anti-Monitor.

LaMonica Garrett as The Anti-Monitor

Actor LaMonica Garrett, who also plays The Monitor, will appear as the villain. The look of the Anti-Monitor appears to be a combination of the Monitor costume with the original George Pérez-designed appearance of the Anti-Monitor as he first appeared fully in the pages of Crisis on Infinite Earths #6:

(The more frequently-used appearance of The Anti-Monitor, encased in a blue and orange suit of armor, came after Supergirl destroyed his original shell in a battle that led to her death in Crisis #7.)

The image of the Anti-Monitor joins other first-look images that The CW has released for Crisis-specific characters Pariah (Tom Cavanagh) and Harbinger (Audrey Marie Anderson).

This design for the Anti-Monitor may not be as imposing as those featured in the original comics, but it’s certainly creepy, and does a nice job melding the Arrowverse costume sensibility with Pérez’s original designs.
