If Only playing with the original Base Game, and Only playing SOLO (or 2 characters/one player), and if Only buying One Crisis Expansion..,

What is the BEST CRISIS EXPANSION ?

Thanks !

My order of favorites is:
Crisis 2
Crisis 3
Crisis 1

I play it with a group and solo as well.
I like Crisis Black Canary the best as she allow you to get Villains into your deck and that can make a large difference in the game and she comes in set 2.

Crisis 3 will only really work well with Forever Evil, so if you haven't got that your choice is between Crisis 1 and Crisis 2.

Count me as another vote for Crisis 2. You could use Crisis 3 with a set other than Forever Evil, but it will fit best with FE. Crisis 3 also has the Crisis cards where you contribute (destroy cards over a number of turns) instead of fulfilling a Crisis requirement all at once, which can be really nice for solo play.

Crisis 1 is still a good set, and is worth mixing in, but isn't as versatile as the latter two are. If you only get one, it should be either 2 or 3.

Incorrect.
Crisis 3 is optimized to work best with Forever Evil, but should work perfectly fine with any other base set.
C-3 continues the theme's of "higher Destroy" and "VP Token's", but the set provides enough cards that do the above, and an optional rule to get more VP token's, so that any base set will work.

Things to note:
Crisis 2 Crisis-cards are arguably better balanced than Crisis 1, but C-2 does -slightly- continue the theme's of Heroes Unite, so a few cards may be flavor-fully out of place (like the -2- Power Rings).

C-3 Crisis-cards use the "Contribute" mechanic, which many feel is a better system than the old "all at once" approach of C-1 & C-2.
