This week's "Fellowship of the Spear" heads into the trenches of World War I, and also basically to Middle-Earth, as beloved Hobbit guy J.R.R. Tolkien helps the team find some mystical artifacts while the Legion of Doom nips at their heels. The episode was directed by Ben Bray and was written by Keto Shimizu and Matthew Maala.
This week’s episode, “Moonshot,” finds the team involved in an all new Apollo 13 disaster that involves far fewer air tank ruptures and far more Reverse Flashes. Kevin Mock directed the episode, which was written by Grainne Godfree.
This week's episode, "Land of the Lost," finds our heroes trapped in prehistoric times, in the Waverider, and in the prisons of their own minds. And also by their feelings. The episode was directed by Ralph Hemecker, from a script by Keto Shimizu and Ray Utarnachitt.
Today sees the release of Steve Orlando and Ivan Reis' Justice League of America Rebirth #1, which features a number of high-profile characters who you might not necessarily associate with the team coming together under Batman's command.

The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow follows a time-traveling team of misfits that includes historian Nate Heywood, Arrow’s Atom and White Canary, both halves of Firestorm, and Flash rogue Heat Wave.

The show returns from a brief hiatus this week with "Raiders of the Lost Art," in which the Legends find an old friend and save Howard the Duck from being erased from movie history. No, really. The episode was directed by Dermott Downs and written by Keto Shimizu and Chris Fedak.
This week's midseason finale, "The Chicago Way," sends our team to the Roaring Twenties to track down a time aberration that makes Al Capone the mayor of The Windy City.

This week, the Legends are caught up in the week-long "Invasion" crossover with Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow. This climactic episode sees the heroes from all four shows developing a plan to defeat the alien invaders, the Dominators. The episode was directed by Gregory Smith. Phil Klemmer and Marc Guggenheim wrote the script from a story by Greg Berlanti.
As the first and greatest superhero of them all, it only stands to reason that Superman would be leading the charge with some of the wildest and weirdest comics of the time. His amazing list of super-powers allowed him to have crazy adventures that many other characters couldn’t dream of having, but he also got strange new (but often very short-lived) powers to let the creators go even crazier with him.
All of which leads us to why you’re really here, to see this gallery of panels from Silver Age Superman comics presented completely without context. Some are weird, some are wacky, some are befuddling, but they’re all pretty fun, and the best part is this is just the teeniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg when it comes to Silver Age insanity. Just try to make sense out of them and enjoy!
This week's episode, "Outlaw Country," finds the team returning to the Old West to stop a rascally varmint from taking over the entire region with some science-fiction rocks. Cherie Nowlan directed the episode. The script is by Matthew Maala and Chris Fedak.
