Supergirl/The Flash Crossover Key Art and Synopsis: Who Wins in a Race?
The Flash is coming to Supergirl in just a few weeks, and now we have our first look at the most adorkable crossover in superhero history. First, a synopsis for the episode, called "Worlds Finest," previews how Barry Allen ends up in National City:

Opening quote
"Worlds Finest" – Kara gains a new ally when the lightning-fast superhero The Flash (Grant Gustin) suddenly appears from an alternate universe and helps Kara battle Siobhan, aka Silver Banshee, and Livewire in exchange for her help in finding a way to return him home, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, March 28 (8:00-9:00 PM) on the CBS Television Network. Grant Gustin crosses over as The Flash.
Closing quote

We already knew that Supergirl and The Flash existed in parallel universes, which confirms a DCTV multiverse, and that the superhero team would be fighting Live Wire and Banshee, since that was previewed in the first behind-the-scenes photos. But it amuses me that Barry apparently gets stuck in Supergirl's universe, and that she has to extort him to help out with the supervillains. This already sounds like a fun episode, and it would be even more fun if Supergirl beat Barry in a footrace:

The key art, which is in the style of a mock comic book cover, asks who the "fastest person alive" is, implying that Kara and Barry will actually go toe-to-toe to find out who's faster. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg confirmed that our nerd dreams are coming true, and we'll see Flash and Supergirl duke it out in a race:

Opening quote
"We do have a footrace, which is one of my favorite moments in this episode," Kreisberg told EW. "It's close."
Closing quote

I have a feeling that Barry will win by a hair, since he is the "fastest man alive" and all. Although I guess Kara could be faster than him if she's the fastest woman? (It would serve them right for using the word "man" in the first place.)

The Supergirl/Flash crossover, "Worlds Finest," airs on March 28 at 8:00pm on CBS.
