- —Black Lightning to the team[src]
A team of vigilantes was formed by Barry Allen following the conclusion of the Anti-Monitor Crisis in honor of Oliver Queen, who sacrificed himself to give birth to the new multiverse. While Oliver is not an official member due to him not surviving to see its formation, he is considered by the others to be one because of his noble sacrifice.
The Crisis team is a succession to both The Trinity and Paragons. It is a collection of 7 heroes of Earth-Prime including the Flash, Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, Batwoman, Superman, White Canary, and Black Lightning, as well as their honorary member, Green Arrow. The team was created to protect Earth from anyone who means to cause it harm but is too powerful for one hero to handle on their own.
The members of this team have teamed up on numerous occasions in various numbers and forms. However, following the Anti-Monitor Crisis and the birth of the new multiverse, the members, after having a private farewell service for Oliver Queen, officially created a pact to protect Earth from anyone who means to cause it harm.
