ARROWVERSE Power Rankings – Week 2

The four series that make up The CW Network’s ARROWVERSE kicked off the 2017-2018 season this week with new episodes to set up new story arcs. But who had the best week? Find out here!

Over the last week, we’ve included a top five list (The Super Cinco) with the recaps of SUPERGIRLTHE FLASHLEGENDS OF TOMORROW and ARROW. You should check those out to see how we got here. From those four top 5 lists, I’ve put together a Top 10 list of the characters who had the best week.

Each ranking spot will be assigned a point total (10 points for first place, down to 1 point for 10th), and character point totals will be accumulated throughout the season. In May, we will crown our ARROWVERSE Power Ranking champion!

Let’s see how the rankings look for WEEK 2 of the Power Rankings:

  1. Curtis Holt (Arrow) – Mr. Terrific continues to be a breakout star of ARROW, using his brains to get the team out of trouble once again this week. He was able to figure out the photo of Oliver as Green Arrow was a fake and helped Felicity take down Anatoly. 10 Points
  2. Barry Allen (The Flash) – The Flash is back from the Speed Force and he finally seems to have lightened up a bit. He dismantled a car at super speed and works through his problems with Iris before working together with his fiancee and the rest of the team to take down Kilg%re. 9 points
  3. Iris West (The Flash) – Iris asserts herself as a vital part of Team Flash and, when Barry doesn’t take her seriously, takes Barry to couples’ counseling to make him see what needs to be fixed in their relationship. Bonus points for coming up with the idea that kept The Flash alive during the final battle. 8 points
  4. Felicity Smoak (Arrow) – Just as vital to the team as Curtis, Felicity showed off why she’s been so important to Oliver Queen as she worked tirelessly to figure out where Anatoly was. 7 points
  5. Oliver Queen (Arrow) – Oliver had to dodge press inquiries and an FBI investigation about his being the Green Arrow, all while trying to find Anatoly and trying to get his son to tolerate him. It was probably one of Oliver’s best showings in a long time. 6 points
  6. Lena Luthor (Supergirl) – Now that she’s running CatCo, the Luthor of National City is asserting her authority at the media company, showing Kara Danvers that being her friend won’t get her any favors and making James Olsen feel a little bit inadequate. 5 points
  7. Dinah Drake (Arrow) – Team Arrow’s new Black Canary continued to prove that she was a badass, compensating for a partner who isn’t at 100 percent, and forcing Diggle to realize he had to come clean about what was wrong with him. 4 points
  8. Amaya Jiwe (Legends of Tomorrow) – Vixen makes her return to the Legends team to help capture a time displaced sabertooth tiger and get the team out of a jam when PT Barnum has them all over a barrel. 3 points
  9. Samantha Arias (Supergirl) – With Lena focusing her time and energy on CatCo, the newest member of the Supergirl cast has been tapped to run the L-Corp operations for Lena. Plus, she had to convince her daughter she didn’t have superpowers after saving her last week. 2 points
  10. Sara Lance (Legends of Tomorrow) – White Canary’s role on Legends so far this season seems to be fighting with Rip’s Time Bureau second-in-command and then making sure everything works out. 1 point

After two weeks, let’s take a look at who’s been most impressive overall to the Geekery Power Rankings team:

  1. Curtis Holt – 17 Points
  2. Iris West – 13 Points
  3. Dinah Drake – 12 Points
  4. (tie) Barry Allen / Lena Luthor – 11 points
  5. Mick Rory – 10 points
  6. Cisco Ramon – 9 points
  7. Felicity Smoak – 7 points
  8. Oliver Queen – 6 points
  9. Rip Hunter – 4 points
