The CW had their big day today at the Television Critics Association’s annual Summer Press Tour, which included a #DCTV panel featuring the producers of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Unsurprisingly, announcements about the shows upcoming seasons were made, and they were exciting ones. But if you missed them as they broke on Facebook and Twitter, we’ve rounded them up for you here.

DC Comics’ beloved oath-saying hero is turning 75 this year, and with a monthly series of comics still on the shelves and a new movie arriving in time for his 80th, it’s clear that the character is still running strong. However, it’s not hard to forget that much of what we associate with Green Lantern—the oath, the Green Lantern Corps, Sinestro, the constant space-faring—didn’t arrive until much later. Heck, even the most well known Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, is but a mere 56 years old.
