If you looked at the Gideon talk page, you'd see a discussion, which concluded that the Gideons on the two shows have a high probability of not being the same. The reason for this is partly because they're voiced by different actresses (at the same time).
In the Smallville episode Hourglass, where they showed the burnt corpses of Batman and other Justice League heroes. When I saw you add the Season 11 JL characters to the "appearances" section of that episode, I immediately put in my Smallville Season 1 dvd and fast-forwardad to where Alexander Luthor Lex's future was shown. And I could clearly see what appears to be Batman, but I still don't see the other characters. I really never noticed it before.
Yeah, I hadn't noticed it before either. Then I found a Youtube video on the appearance of Batman. Checked with my own DVD to confirm it and was able to spot Wonder Woman's gear (right of Lex's head). MM's skull (right of Lex's chest). The GL Ring (right of Lex). Then there are a few that I can't identify. There appears to be an "A" emblem. But, is it "A" for Aquaman or "A" for Atom? There's also some metallic headpiece on the upper left, but I didn't wanna speculate about whom that might be.
Okay, I was checking out the history revisions of the Smallville characters and I noticed that the alignment sections of Lana Lang, Lois Lane, Henry James Olsen, and Pete Ross all read "Neutral" until they were correctly changed to "Good". These were edits between 2007-2009. But I wonder what was going on through these users heads because all these characters have clearly been Good-aligned ever since their respective first appearances. Well, perhaps Lana deserved to be Neutral at the time for her actions in Season 7, but the one I found jarring the most was Lois, whose probably one of the most moral, if somewhat irritable, characters on the show. Even Darkseid admitted such. Were the rules on alignment different back then? I mean, nowadays, people like Catwoman and Captain freaking Cold are good-aligned. I'm glad the pages of the aforementioned Smallville have been long fixed, but Lois never should've been Neutral. I wonder what the person who originally created that page was thinking. Obviously, had her page been created anytime post-2010, she would've been called "Good" right away. The Lois Lane from Superman returns also fell victim to this. Her page was created back in '08 and read Neutral and it wasn't changed to Good until 2012, four years. Did love interests & supporting characters back then not have a right to be called "Good" like the superheroes?
Over the years, I've really grown to dislike the alignment section. It's something that's in danger of being more of a question of the personal opinion of the editor, than facts. In the case of Kate Bosworth's Lois, it might've been about her taking her kid with her on a potentially dangerous assignment (as I've often seen complaints about that). It can be a question of personal dislike of a character (ex. Clana shippers not liking Lois, while Clois shippers not liking Lana).

Is it a troll thing? Wasn't there just recently, like last week, some troll changing the alignments on the Flash characters? And the troll before that, and the troll before that, same type of targets? Maybe "Alignment" acts as some kind of troll magnet or something. Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 12:39, November 28, 2018 (UTC)
Why do you consider Aunt Nell 'neutral' when there are criminals like Leonard Snart (Arrow) and Mick Rory (Arrow) who are considered 'good'? What makes them more moral than Nell, who I don't recall actually doing anything wrong?
It's all about how she raised Lana.
1) Giving her a necklace, made from the meteorite that killed Lana's parents (giving the girl a constant reminder of her parents' death).
2) In the pilot episode and several times after, we see Lana visiting her parents' grave at night. A behavior that showcases a disinterest in the girl's behavior, from her legal guardian.
Basically, her childraising places her in the neutral camp (i.e. not evil, but not exactly good either). I could go deeper. Like her manipulating her niece into becoming an idealized version of her late sister.
As for why Mich and Snart (Arrow) are considered good. Well, that's because someone simply put that alignment on their articles.
