I believe I have
an appointment.
Mr. Goongala?


Imagine four superhero shows on the edge of a cliff.

Say a direct copy of the show nearest the cliff is sent to the back of the line of shows and takes the place of the first show. The formerly first show becomes the second. The second becomes the third. And the fourth falls off the cliff.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow works the same way.



Season One:

Vandal Savage, an evil dictator blessed with immortality, has achieved what no one in human history ever has. He has conquered the entire planet. Rory Williams Rip Hunter appeals to the Time Council for a ship called the Waverider that he later claims he's owned for ten years so that he can travel from 2166 to 2016 to recruit a team to help him stop Savage once and for all. They include:

THE ATOM - Dr. Ray Palmer. Made a suit that can shrink and fly and shoot lasers that he loses a lot. Says he died at some point, but I guess he's fine by the time the show starts. Probably being melodramatic.

WHITE CANARY - Sarah Lance. Is now a bad time to mention I don't watch Arrow? The multiple Canaries thing has been explained to me more than once and it sounds like just the worst. Actually died. Got better.

FIRESTORM - Jefferson "Jax" Jackson and Professor Martin Stein. Flying and fire and transmutation when they remember. Sometimes I miss Ronnie. He couldn't act and he liked pizza and he was the hero we deserve.

HAWKMAN - Carter Hall. A real creep.

HAWKGIRL - Kendra Saunders. A former barista that Cisco liked on The Flash one time until Carter showed up. Her whole situation is a real bummer. They can both fly and have visions or whatever.

CAPTAIN COLD - Leonard Snart. Imagine if Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr. Freeze and Eartha Kitt's Catwoman met at a bar and had a few drinks and shared a few laughs and made some consensual adult decisions.

HEATWAVE - Mick Rory. He drinks. He grunts. He burns things. He rules.

In the end, Snart sacrifices himself to blow up the Time Masters, the Legends successfully kill Vandal Savage three times, across three different time periods, all at the same time, and the Hawks fly away on Thanagarian Rumspringa. Good riddance.



Season Two:

You know what? I think I'll let The Legion of Doom fill you in on their plan themselves. They can probably handle it. Maybe? Basically, they're gonna steal the Spear of Destiny, or they already have, and it'll allow them to rewrite time, or it already has. Don't bother trying to keep up. Also a few new people join the team. They include:

STEEL - Dr. Nate Heywood. Specializes in deductive historical reconstruction. Former hemophiliac. Turns into metal now. Used it to stop a train once. 10% Colossus, 20% Indiana Jones, 70% Dilbert.

VIXEN - Amaya Jiwe. Wears an amulet that allows her to mimic the abilities of animals. Former member of the Justice Society of America. Cannot stop scowling. Like, seriously. She has a problem.

In the end, the Legends fight their way out of the Legion of Doom's rewritten reality, they break the first rule of time travel and interact with their former selves, Sarah depowers the spear, Thawne dies, Rip leaves, and they scramble time on their way to Aruba.



Season Three:

Sometimes They Screw Up Time For The Better.

On Tuesday, October 10th, everyone's favorite chronologically-reckless do-gooder nincompoops return to face off against Rip Hunter's new Time Bureau. There'll be more Vixens than you can shake a stick at, Sarah putting the moves on Damien Darhk's daughter probably, and Black Adam's main squeeze joining the crew, but not with that name because...

Here's a trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kg2T51tA8Vc

And another: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjuX8cuZoNA

And a sizzle reel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lJiiC8j6zQ

But remember! No matter how excited you might be to watch these lovable dummies continue to stumble their way through history under the highly dubious pretense of correcting aberrations in the timeline, and who could blame you, do not call them heroes. They're something else.

What are some of the fun eras you’ll visit this season?

We get Billy Zane and the circus [in the second episode]; we get a little Julius Caesar on the beach in Aruba in the premiere. We meet [new team member] Zari in this sort of dystopian future. We get to do a little Amblin alien episode back in the ’80s; we do some Jack the Ripper Victorian London; Golden Age of Hollywood; John Constantine doing an exorcism. We do a Freaky Friday episode. The only thing we haven’t been able to do: We really wanted to do an Abba “Waterloo” in then Napoleonic wars but we could not get the rights for the song.

More outstanding news: Matt Ryan is 100% coming back as Constantine for Season 3 of Legends. Just as a guest for now, but it sounds like they might be having him pop up on Arrow or Flash again this year too.

This was the best of the Arrow-verse shows last season by a HUGE margin, and it looks like Season 3 is going to be more of what I loved. Comedy, crazy storylines, and the team being the most lovable idiots in the multiverse.

Plus Constantine? My body is ready.

I'm quite happy they figured out a way to still have Rip on the show without shelving him or turning him into an outright villain again (knock wood).

But still, the line "Rip's hiding something from us" should be followed immediately with "What else is new? " by this point.

I kind of like the idea of Rip as the new authority on time travel who has a whole organization of people working for him but also keeps the Legends as his little side team for the off the books work.

And of course who keeps totally unnecessary secrets for well intentions reasons that ultimately come to bite him in the rear end.
