legends of tomorrow

legends-of-tomorrow-freakshow

Trying to prove their worth, and using a list of time anachronisms stolen from Rip Hunter‘s (Arthur Darvill) new organization, the Legends head back to a circus in 1870 where they turn a low-level disturbance into something far more dangerous before eventually saving time once more. Given that the threat involves a sabertooth tiger out of its natural element, the group also decides to call on the help of Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) whose reasons for returning to the past are finally explained. Most of the humor is at the expense of our main characters, as they make a situation ten times worse before making things better, but that seems to be the theme of the show’s Third Season which I’m happy enough to see continue (and I still think Booster Gold would fit in perfectly as a Legend).

After breaking all of time, the Legends find themselves replaced from their roles as time police by Rip Hunter‘s (Arthur Darvill) new Time Bureau. Struggling to fit back into everyday lives, the group is given the chance to jump back into action when Mick (Dominic Purcell) discovers Julius Caesar (Simon Merrells) on a beach in Aruba. While the Legends first attempt to right history, after stealing the Waverider from the Time Bureau, goes horribly wrong, eventually the group does prove their value and grudgingly earn their roles back in helping clean up the mess they caused.

The season finale of Legends of Tomorrow is a solid wrap-up to the events of the show’s Second Season involving the Spear of Destiny and the time-travelers battles with the Legion of Doom. For the first time the characters get a bit more cavalier with their time-traveling lifestyle as the return back to the events of a previous episode, where they will be faced to deal with their younger selves creating a time quake that the Legends will still be feeling the effects of next season. For the finale, however, this becomes rather entertaining as the group first attempts to alter events without their younger selves knowledge before being forced to bring them all into the fold.

Having gotten their hands on the Spear of Destiny and reshaped reality to their liking, the Legion of Doom are enjoying the spoils of their victory, some more than others. Recasting the various Legends in roles as subordinates in various demeaning positions, the villains have everything they could want, although internal bickering soon leads to turmoil among the group. The catalyst for change comes in the form of the team’s turncoat who realizes the return of his former partner and the resumption of the criminal enterprises isn’t the same the second time around.

legends-of-tomorrow-raiders-of-the-lost-art

“Raiders of the Lost Art” brings the Legends to 1967 in search of their lost captain. However, they aren’t the only ones looking for Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill). The villainous team of Malcom Merlyn (John Barrowman), Damien Darkh (Neal McDonough), and the Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher) are also on the look-out for Hunter believing he can lead them to the scattered pieces of the Spear of Destiny which the “Legion of Doom” can use to manipulate reality itself. Unfortunately for all involved the Rip Hunter found in 1967 isn’t the captain of the Waverider. Instead he’s a promising film student and classmate of George Lucas (Matt Angel) working on a student film about time traveling heroes cobbled together from hazy memories he doesn’t believe are real.

The Invasion! crossover continues, focusing mainly on current and former Arrow cast members who are abducted by the Dominators and thrown into a virtual-reality world in which Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Thea‘s (Willa Holland) parents are still alive, Diggle (David Ramsey) is the Green Arrow, and Oliver is set to marry Laurel (Katie Cassidy). Haunted by memory flashes of their true lives, Oliver, Thea, Diggle, Ray (Brandon Routh), and Sara (Caity Lotz) come together to fight their way out of the fake reality and back into the real world where they wake up to discover they are aboard a Dominator mother ship in outer space.

Now this is more like it. The big four-part crossover which was teased (but not actually begun) last night on Supergirl gets started here with the arrival of the Dominators on Earth. For those not familiar with the aliens, the Dominators were first introduced back in the 60s but made their most notable splash in DC Comics in 1989 as part of the Invasion! (good name) mini-series. Realizing he can’t stop the alien threat alone, Barry (Grant Gustin) enlists the help of Team Arrow (including the retired Thea), the Legends, and even hops universes to bring back Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Although Barry doesn’t take naturally to leading, the team follows him… at least until they discover about Flashpoint whose effects continue to be discovered as one Legend learns he now has a loving daughter he has never met.

legends-of-tomorrow-season-oneBuilding on the DC TV Universe created in Arrow and The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is a mixed bag. Cobbling together characters created for the show and others introduced on the on the other two shows as an unruly bunch of time travelers out to save the future, the show had more than few ups and downs during its First Season. Time Master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) plucks a group of heroes and villains from modern day (rather than choose heroes from a wide swath of time which would have made more sense) to save his family and stop the villainous immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) from conquering the world.

Jumping through time, the First Season did have its moments such as a bleak future for Star City and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and Kendra (Ciara Renée) getting stranded in 1958, but also some clunkers such as the team’s stop in the Old West.

Following his inability to save the lives of his wife and son, the crippling of the Time Masters’ ability to view and control history, and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) sacrificing his life for the team’s freedom, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) decides to abandon his compatriots back in 2016. Finding it hard to readjust to their old lives, and unable to leave their job unfinished, the group brings Hunter back to 2016 (in a manner that isn’t all that well explained) to convince the Time Master to let them help rescue Kendra (Ciara Renée) from 1944 France.
