Hey did you miss me? You had to know that I would be coming back with a quick summary about this evenings third season premiere of “Legends Of Tomorrow” which will air immediately after tonight’s episode of “The Flash” which has its own fourth season premiere and was discussed on THIS LINK if you missed it. If there is one thing that the New York Comic Con leaves us fans with, its a bevy of shows that are right up our alley. Down below you will see the “OFFICIAL POSTER” and I’ve snagged some Season 2 refresher and casting for you before tossing in my own thoughts on the matter. Here we go.
Season 2 Recap: In season two, with the Time Masters defeated, the team are left to guard the timeline themselves, and learn to cope in Rip’s absence after he disappears. However, they are continually plagued by the Legion of Doom, a time-travelling supervillain team led by Reverse Flash (Eobard Thawne), who has recruited past versions of Damien Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, and Leonard Snart to help him find the Spear of Destiny of Biblical fame, with which they can rewrite their fates. The team is joined by new members Amaya Jiwe / Vixen, an African superhero from 1940s superhero team the Justice Society of America, and Nate Heywood / Steel, a modern-day historian with the power to become solid metal.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I enjoyed most of Season Two of “Legends” but really wish they would have done more with the Justice Society since I really enjoyed those characters. The inclusion of both Steel and Vixen to the main cast is a great change and the bouncing across the timeline of the DC Universe allows for a lot of play with other characters. In my humble opinion, the more characters that are introduced to the television universe the better. I wasn’t crazy about the villains using the Legion Of Doom moniker but that is because I grew up with the classic “Superfriends” cartoon and we had those “Challenge Of The Super-Friends” episodes that found them facing off against a very capable LOD week after week. What do you think? Have you been watching this and will you be programming your DVR to capture it? I have to do that since I am seeing a concert later on this evening and have no time for some couch lounging and TV viewing. Let me know down in the comments about what you think. Now you will have to excuse me since I am still uploading images to our Official Instagram from NY Comic Con. The regular posts are coming soon too.
