Origins and Evolutions: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Though The Flash and Arrow have flirted with ensembles in their crossover episodes, the upcoming DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be an ensemble piece for its entirety. Featuring the combined characters from both shows, plus some new ones, the series will have heroes The Atom, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Rip Hunter, Firestorm, and White Canary, plus villains Heat Wave and Captain Cold, plotting to save the world from villain Vandal Savage. A regular league of Americans seeking justice if you will. Before the series premieres, let’s go over a brief history of the individual team members, how they have changed, and what to look forward to in the future.

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?

Based on the characters from DC Comics, the new series hails from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow”) serves as executive producer alongside Marc Guggenheim (Eli Stone, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” Pan).

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on The CW on January 21.
