That's right everyone! The CW universe of DC superheroes is officially expanding and it will be doing so with "Legends of Tomorrow". The show has long been speculated about by many, including myself, to be "Justice Society" or something along such lines, but we now have our first synopsis about it!
"When heroes alone are not enough ... the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?"
The series has been picked up for a full season order, proving the CW must be very confident about it (because why wouldn't they??)
Now we have some of our questions answered, we can finally rest, right?
Wrong, instead we will begin to ask a whole lot more questions.
I don't know about you, but that sounds to me like a certain DC villain who should definitely be used by CW at some point.
Yesssssssssssssssssssssssss please! Vandal Savage is a perfect villain for this world. He has plagued the world since the beginning of human history, he is immortal (already kind of explored with Ra's Al Ghul), he has been battling the Justice Society since the golden age of comics, and he is such a bad ass!
Considered to be the official nemesis of the A.T.O.M, Chronos is very big into time travelling (Which seems to be a big component of this show) and therefore connected to Rip Hunter. He could potentially be a huge villain to link this team together, and he has an awesome name! However I think Vandal Savage is the most awesome choice! Although I have to admit, he seems more like a threat to all of time itself than Savage.
Rip Hunter brings the team together?
This is interesting, mostly because:
Why doesn't he bring the Arrow and the Flash into the team?
Hmm, food for thought there. Logically, you would want someone like the flash, even if because he can time travel, right? Why do you get Sara? A dead former Canary? Or is she someone else? It's all a little strange for me. But I trust in the good folks at CW because they haven't done any wrong by us fans yet.
Does this mean the series is limited to one season?
I've heard a few rumors that this is the case, I don't see any reason why this should be the case. They come together to fight a villain, and then stay together afterwards probably. Like the Justice League, who first came together to fight Darkseid, and then stayed together as a team.
What's happening with Captain Cold and Heatwave?
Let's be honest, they're not really very good villains are they? They've been beaten by the Flash five or six times, and apparently are going to team up with him against Reverse Flash in the next episode. I personally can't wait to see them helping more heroes in a are-they-good-or-not role. This whole show is looking absolutely amazing!
