Marvel’s 2012 Avengers movie is proof that view­ers love su­per­heroes team­ing up against bad­dies. A sim­i­lar sce­nario is tak­ing place in ri­val comic book em­pire DC’s Leg­ends Of To­mor­row (2016-cur­rent), which is a spin-off of sorts from Ar­row (2012-cur­rent) and The Flash (2014-cur­rent). “In our minds, DC’s Leg­ends Of To­mor­row is the first mod­ern-day su­per­hero team-up show,” says ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Greg Ber­lanti of the 16-episode se­ries, which has been re­newed for sea­son 2.

The premise is sim­ple: for­mer time master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) is heart­bro­ken. In the year 2166, im­mor­tal dic­ta­tor Van­dal Sav­age (Casper Crump) kills Rip’s wife and son and the only way to stop this from hap­pen­ing is for Rip to travel back in time and as­sem­ble a rag­tag team of su­per­heroes and vil­lains to stop Van­dal. So who’s on the team? • From Ar­row, there’s science whiz Ray Palmer/Atom (Brandon Routh) and vig­i­lante Sara Lance/ White Ca­nary (Caity Lotz) who died and was res­ur­rected in the mag­i­cal hot­tub known as the Lazarus Pit. • From Flash, you’ll see nu­clear physi­cist Martin Stein (Vic­tor Gar­ber) and me­chanic Jef­fer­son Jack­son (Franz Drameh) who com­bine their bod­ies to make up the hero known as Firestorm. Also, there’s gun-tot­ing Leonard Snart/Cap­tain Cold (Went­worth Miller), py­ro­ma­niac Mick Rory/ Heat Wave (Dominic Pur­cell) who has a dark se­cret, Ken­dra Saun­ders/ Hawk­girl (Ciara Renée), who’s been res­ur­rected many times and Carter Hall/Hawk­man (Falk Hentschel), who is a rein­car­nated Egyp­tian prince and Ken­dra’s lover. Round­ing off the team is Gideon, the ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence on Rip’s space­ship the Waverider that does most of the work on the ship.
