- Due to Oliver Queen becoming a deputized agent of the SCPD after 2018, it stands to reason that he and even several of the other heroes present were working alongside local law enforcement and possibly even A.R.G.U.S., and thus no longer considered "vigilantes" or "illegal meta-humans".
- Also, Rip Hunter stated that the future is constantly in flux, meaning this scenario could be just one of many potential future timelines.
