How do you rank the characters of a universe that includes six CW TV series: Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Black Lightning, and Batwoman? The Arrowverse, as the series’ collective multiverse is known, is filled with beautiful characters like Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin, who you will recall was also a total babe as Tom Collins in Rent). It’s also filled with attractive people we’d love to hate-bang like Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) or Deathstroke (can I just say damn, Manu Bennett? Like, DAMN).
But this list is about sexiness—and being sexy isn’t just about being attractive, but also about confidence, attitude, joie de vivre, and swagger. There are many, many characters in the Arrowverse who are sexy for myriad reasons, but we had to focus in on the very sexiest.
Except in one very deserving case, we limited ourselves to series regulars who had been so for more than one season. If we hadn’t, this list would have included the likes of Earth X’s Leo Snart (Wentworth Miller), Constantine (Matt Ryan), Harbinger (Audrey Marie Anderson), and Earth-96’s sexily graying Superman (Brandon Routh), and then it would have become unwieldy.
