Why Did ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Drug One of Its Heroes Into Joining the Team?

Legends of Tomorrow Premiere Stein Jackson Drugging

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ got off to a strong start with last night’s premiere, but one moment from the series debut seemed to stick out as especially ill-devised. Namely, why the hell did ‘Legends’ think it necessary for Victor Garber’s Professor Martin Stein to drug and kidnap his Firestorm partner into joining the mission, and how in the world did the others laugh that off?

DC stars of The CW have often found themselves walking thin lines against the cinematic Justice League’s decision to reboot continuity with different actors, as Stephen Amell has defended multiple comments on taking Arrow to the big screen, or DC announcing Ezra Miller’s Flash within days of The CW premiere. Now, Grant Gustin himself is in the hot seat, defending accusations of decrying Miller’s Barry Allen.

Reverse-Flash Will Flash Back to ‘The Flash,’ And Not in Flashback

Flash Season 2 Reverse Flash Returns Matt Letscher
The CW

Flash big bads can be a little difficult to keep up with (hardy-har), hopping back hundreds of years in time and changing their appearance, or speeding between dimensions on a whim, but at least one of Barry Allen’s biggest rogues will make a major Season 2 return. The Reverse-Flash will officially zoom back to Central City, but in which form, and why?

The Flash Season 2 never quite wound up a full trailer the way Arrow opted for Season 4, but has still afforded plenty of looks at its new adventures. That said, a new promo offers the most tantalizing tidbit yet, as we finally get a look at “demon speedster” big bad Zoom, as voiced by Tony Todd himself.

DC Boss Says TV Sharing Movie Universe Would ‘Handcuff’ Creators

DC Movie TV Crossover Universe
The CW / Warner Bros.

Fandom among TV superheroes has ups and downs across both Marvel and DC; the former sharing continuity, but never screentime with its cinematic brethren, while DC’s lot keep explicitly separate from the Batman v. Superman world, and its Justice League. Now, DC’s Diane Nelson opens up as to why Arrow or The Flash will never join the Man of Steel, lest they “hinder the ability” of creatives to tell good stories.

Mezco Bringing More DC Heroes, Star Trek to One:12 Collective

Mezco's One:12 Collective at SDCC

Mezco's One:12 Collective hasn't been around very long (just one released figure, and one shipping soon), but it's already made a major impression on collectors. Featuring incredible articulation, real fabric costumes and a wealth of accessories, Mezco has seemingly brought the same kind of quality and experience you'd expect from larger, more elaborate (read: expensive) collectibles to an affordable scale that fits in with most other figure lines.

As the first entry in the brand, the Dark Knight Returns Batman may have set an impossible bar for Mezco to meet again, but that doesn't mean the company isn't trying. At San Diego Comic-Con this year, Mezco revealed a partial upcoming slate of figures it has planned for 2016, including more DC heroes, and some interesting surprises. Though only in prototype form, the pieces look to continue what Mezco started, and evolve the One:12 Collective into more than just a flash in the pan.

Ask Chris #234: A Brief History Of Hypertime

Ask Chris #234, art by Erica Henderson

Q: What the hell was hypertime? -- @T_Lawson

A: Oh man, Hypertime. That is something that I have not thought about in a while, although I suspect that with Multiversity going on and Convergence about to hit in a few months, it's something that's going to be getting a little more attention than it has in the past fifteen years or so. And given that at least half of these columns are about how much I love DC Comics from the '90s, it probably won't surprise you to find out that it's a really interesting concept.

As for what the hell it is, well, it's one of those weird cases where the simplest and most sarcastic answer is also kind of the most accurate: Hypertime is whatever you want it to be.
