After a half-season of set-up in both Arrow and The Flash, it’s finally here: the CW’s latest super-show, Legends of Tomorrow. Featuring Arrow’s Atom and White Canary, as well as both halves of Firestorm, the Hawkpersons, and rogues Captain Cold and Heat Wave from The Flash, the show follows Rip Hunter and his team of misfits across time.
Our longest-serving Arrow and Flash recappers, Matt Wilson and Dylan Todd, have joined forces to deliver our Legends of Tomorrow post-show analysis. This week, our heroes and their more entertaining villain chums are still goofing around in the 70s, and some people might not make it out of the decade alive. (Well, obviously.) "Pilot, Part 2" was directed by Glen Winter, and written by Phil Klemmer & Marc Guggenheim, and Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg.
I gotta be honest with you, folks: I am pretty excited about DC's Legends of Tomorrow. The fact that we're living in this magical time where we can get a giant, live-action crossover between DC's second-string heroes as a major television event does my heart good. And it also might be the source of the weirdest Comixology sale I've ever seen.
The big Legends of Tomorrow sale has thrown in stuff as weird as the '90s Power of the Atom, the Blackest Night and Brightest Day crossovers, and even a seven-issue Final Crisis tie-in so that readers can catch up on Heatwave and Captain Cold's previous adventures. But if you only have one dollar and you want to check out the single best issue of the bunch, then you need to pick up Hawkman #27 --- also known as the one time that the team behind Criminal, The Fade Out and Fatale did a story about a grumpy bird man who hits things with a mace.
It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where grizzled Arrow watcher Matt D. Wilson and newcomer Chris Haley dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
This week’s episode, “Legends of Yesterday,” reunites the Flash and Arrow teams, and fully sets the stage for the upcoming spin-off series, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Oh, and everyone dies. Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Brian Ford Sullivan wrote the episode, which was directed by our new name champion, Thor Freudenthal.
Arrow and The Flash have been dropping sneak peeks left and right, but with 2016 teamup spinoff Legends of Tomorrow in full production, DC has dropped another tantalizing tease out of the sky. Meet Hawkman and Hawkgirl, fully (well, almost) suited up for their Legend-ary debuts!
A few weeks ago, fans learned the exciting DC news that not only would Hawkman join Ciara Renee’s Hawkgirl in 2016's Legends of Tomorrow, but also that we’d meet the character even earlier on either Arrow or The Flash. As it turns out, both! Reckless star Falk Hentschel will don Hawkman’s wings, first appearing as Carter Hall in the end-of-year crossover event.
From Wally West and Linda Park, to Harley Quinn and Mistah J, we're asking you to vote on comics' most famous couples so we can determine the best (and worst) romantic partnerships that comics have to offer. If you think the couple is star-crossed and meant to be, vote 'True Love.' If you think they've got unstable chemistry and can only end badly, vote 'Bad Romance.'
In today's polls, we're looking at matched pairs. Hawkfolk. Acrobats. Size-shifting bug-themed heroes. When it comes to love, is it always opposites that attract, or is the secret to a lasting relationship the shared ability to breathe underwater? Fun fact: This is what Carrie Bradshaw would sound like if she lived in the Marvel or DC universe. Let's try another; If you want to build a future together, does it help to share a history of murdering people for the Russians?
If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.
On this week's show, a viewer asks Chris to explain Hawkman and ends up sparking a journey through one of the most complicated histories in comics, trying to answer one simple question: Why isn't a dude who fights dinosaurs with a mace while not wearing a shirt the coolest guy ever?
If you had a hard time liking the cocky, full-of-himself version of Oliver Queen that's been trotting around the DC Universe since the start of the New 52, take comfort. New writer Green Arrow writer Jeff Lemire -- of Animal Man, Sweet Tooth, Essex County and Best-of-the-Year book Underwater Welder-- felt the same way...
Mattel's DC Universe Classics brand has been relegated from retail to the pricier Mattycollector subscription service, but plenty of compatible 6" superhero figures will continue to roll out in stores via the rebranded DC Unlimited and Batman Unlimited lines in early 2013...
