Obscurity Today But LEGENDS OF TOMORROW #1 On The Wednesday Run

Legends of Tomorrow #1 coverLegends of Tomorrow: the television series that united the DC cable programming universe!

Legends of Tomorrow: the big-budget weekly broadcast series that spun out of the hit The Flash, which, in turn spun out of the hit Arrow.

Legends of Tomorrow: the highly anticipated pop culture phenomenon that, although childishly fun, up until now has really only hinted at comic book fan kind of fun.

The series has been a bit of a guilty pleasure for me and many other viewers – as it aims to emulate the highs of the shows that birthed it Still, it’s pretty awesome to see Rip Hunter on television.

But if you think that Legends of Tomorrow doesn’t have long and storied following, you’d be wrong. Four-colour wrong, in fact. And the brand new DC Comics releases of the extra-sized Legends of Tomorrow #1, out today, aims to prove that!

Follow me after the jump for what is sure to be throw back comic book excitement!

The Flash S02 E04: The Fury of Firestorm

fla1

I’ve talked about this before, the name of the show is “The Flash,” but it, and the show it spun off from, “Arrow,” are wrapped in the mythos of another DC Comics superhero – Firestorm. Besides sharing his cast of characters, last season on “The Flash,” we even had the origin and appearances by the Nuclear Man, but in our season premiere, Firestorm gave his life (or half of it) to save Central City. Now a new Firestorm must be found, or his remaining half will die. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “The Fury of Firestorm.”

The Flash S02 E03: Family of Rogues

fla1

In the comics, it’s usually the heroes who have complicated backstories and casts of characters. All you need to know about the bad guys is that they are, well, bad. Some villains do have that background, and some have families, loved ones, origins, backgrounds, and motivations. Captain Cold is a good example. He has friends and family. In this week’s episode of “The Flash,” we learn a bit more about Cold. We’ve met his partner, his sister, and now, his father. Join me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “Family of Rogues.”
