- "Among the many misconceptions humanity holds dear is the fallacy that all beings are created equal. In truth, there are those who are greater. They are called heroes. But even among heroes, there are different echelons. The highest belongs to those known as the paragons. And they are the only hope of all creation."
- —Mar Novu[src]
After Oliver Queen died earlier than expected and Earth-38 was destroyed, The Monitor went back in time and consulted the Book of Destiny, discovering of the existence of the Paragons, and their part to play in defeating the Anti-Monitor. In doing this, he explained their existence to a group of heroes, among whom two existed, Kara Danvers and Sara Lance, giving them the task of finding the others. They found one on Earth-96, Clark Kent, and ultimately discovered another of their own to be one, Kate Kane.
After Ray completed the Paragon detector with the help of Cisco, they were able to identify J'onn J'onzz, Barry Allen, and Ryan Choi as the last three, being the Paragons of Honor, Love, and Humanity, respectively.
With the entire multiverse destroyed, the Paragons were sent to the Vanishing Point by Pariah. However, due to Lex Luthor meddling with his own fate by rewriting a page from the Book of Destiny, he replaced Earth-96's Clark Kent as the Paragon of Truth.
