There are a lot of superheroes out there these days, and it can be a little overwhelming to figure out who has which powers. Not to mention, a lot of them have crazy names that are a mouthful in their own right. Oh, and each character has a hero name as well as a real name, so there’s double the names to remember. To make the superhero TV-show watching binges that much easier, we’ve crafted our very first character guide for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Now, you can leave the thinking to us (who wants to turn their brain on when they are binge watching a show?) and simply sit back and enjoy. But before you totally veg out, here’s the premise of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Airing on the CW, Legends of Tomorrow is a spin-off from Arrow and The Flash, set in the same universe.
The plot follows the story of Rip Hunter, who goes rogue after his family is killed. He recruits a new team of heroes in an attempt to prevent an apocalypse from happening.
Here are all the characters you need to know from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow:
#1. Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill)
Played by Arthur Darvill of Doctor Who fame, Rip Hunter uses time-traveling skills to defeat villain Vandal Savage.
