LEGENDS OF TOMORROW REVIEWED
“Legends of Tomorrow” is a fascinating concept to bring together fringe DC TV characters into an exciting new team. Honestly, I love how much the show works. So many characters are personal favorites and each episode gets to sample the greatest corners of the DC Universe. We’re seeing a Wild West episode featuring Cinnamon and then time spent with Jonah Hex and the future Negative Woman. Hell, the Russian Firestorm from the late 1980s gets two full episodes. Elementary school aged Anderson would pass out from excitement.
Knowing what’s coming in Season 2, I’m stoked. Sure, the Time Masters and Vanishing Point dominated too much of the season 1 finale, but there’s nowhere to go but up. That being said, we need a shot at seeing what Rip Hunter can do. There’s a reason why he’s the supreme Time Lord of the DC Universe. We got a tinge of Hunter’s reputation during the Jonah Hex episode, but this series seems hellbent on knee-capping him. Let’s see what challenges the Legion of Doom can offer.
In terms of everyone else, the Hawk stuff is overly complicated. But, that’s been the way of the world for DC for ages. The Flash Rogues feel better suited for Flash. But, Firestorm, Atom and even White Canary make more sense here. This should be the scientific oddity show, not the network synergy power hour.

The Plot Thus Far
When heroes alone are not enough…the world needs legends. Having seen the future, traveling rogue Rip Hunter assembles a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront the unstoppable threat of the immortal Vandal Savage- a threat which not only puts the planet at stake, but all of time itself. From the creators of The Flash and Arrow comes this super hero team-up that combines characters from both shows – in addition to new heroes from the DC Comics pantheon. Featuring Arrow’s Brandon Routh as The Atom and Caity Lotz as the resurrected Sara Lance/White Canary; with The Flash’s Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein alongside Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold and Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave; plus, the newest heroes Rip Hunter, Jeff Jackson and the reincarnated warrior queen Hawkgirl, this singular super hero spinoff series pits the ragtag team against one of the most powerful villains in the DC Comics universe.
