If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a glorious shot of the heroes together... including Legend’s Nate Heywood, a.k.a Citizen Steel, who gets the most amazingly goofy superhero costume in the CWverse in time for the crossover, seen for the first time here:

But then, oh dear reader, then. EW did a photoshoot with Melissa Benoist, Stephen Amell, and Grant Gustin in costume, and it is just the most adorable concentration of happiness you’ve ever seen.
