When heroes alone are not enough…the world needs legends. Having seen the future, traveling rogue Rip Hunter assembles a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront the unstoppable threat of the immortal Vandal Savage- a threat which not only puts the planet at stake, but all of time itself. From the creators of The Flash and Arrow comes this super hero team-up that combines characters from both shows – in addition to new heroes from the DC Comics pantheon. Featuring Arrow’s Brandon Routh as The Atom and Caity Lotz as the resurrected Sara Lance/White Canary; with The Flash’s Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein alongside Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold and Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave; plus, the newest heroes Rip Hunter, Jeff Jackson and the reincarnated warrior queen Hawkgirl, this singular super hero spinoff series pits the ragtag team against one of the most powerful villains in the DC Comics universe.
In the year 2166, an immortal warlord called Vandal Savage destroys the last hope of resistance and conquers the planet under his rule. Rip Hunter, a member of the Time Lords, an organization dedicated to police time itself, has his wife and child murdered by the tyrant. Asking his employers for help overthrowing Savage’s rule before it starts, he is denied, so he is forced to gather a group of exceptional individuals from the 21st century to build himself a group of heroes to find Savage and put an end to his tyranny by any means necessary.
Have you ever watched the beginning of a series and thought wow, this could be good or it just not going to be able to get into. When I was younger we always read comic books, yeah the superhero ones, we love wonder woman and superwoman.
This series reminded me of the superheroes we loved when we were that young, a great series for those who are into all that superhero stuff. The best part is this first season, will be out on August 23, 2016
