Is Nanda Parbat supposed to be Nanga Parbat?

Nanda Parbat is not a typo. DC Comics combined the fictional city of Shangri-La and the real-life mountain Nanga Parbat in Pakistan to make Nanda Parbat. Maseo mentions the city in this week’s episode, but Arrow has name-dropped Nanda Parbat for a while. Merlyn and Sara received training here by none other than Ra’s al Ghul himself, but Nanda Parbat wasn’t originally created for Green Arrow. It’s the home of Deadman. I don’t know if we’ll see an appearance by Deadman. He’s a part of Justice League Dark, the team that also includes John Constantine, and Constantine is on a different network.


Hey, that’s not Sara’s costume.

Sara Lance’s Black Canary costume resembled the classic Black Canary’s, but Laurel’s tips its hat to the New 52 Black Canary’s design. Which one do you prefer?
