The cast and producers of “Arrow” took to the stage Friday afternoon and couldn’t seem to believe that they were going into the third season of their show.

Cisco’s newfound powers, drawn from vibrational cracks between different dimensions, win him a place among the heroes he revered in his childhood. The new Justice League also includes Catwoman, Hawkman, Stargirl, Green Arrow and more. The launch issue of “Justice League of America’s Vibe” hits shelves Wednesday, but Hero Complex readers get a sneak peek at the comic, co-written by Geoff Johns and Andrew Kreisberg and illustrated by Pete Woods and Sean Parsons.
