‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 2 Synopsis Teases JSA, ‘Scattered’ Team
Legends of Tomorrow only had so much new footage to show at Comic-Con 2016 after Arrow and Flash, but a few weeks of filming with the JSA have brought much more revealing intel. See for yourself, as the first Season 2 synopsis reveals the Legends have scattered to the wind, and must reunite to solve a major mystery.
The CW released the first official Season 2 synopsis for The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow, which sees Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano) taking a central role in reuniting the team scattered throughout time. It also seems Rip Hunter has vanished altogether, while one member gains some steely new powers:
After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery – the Legends are scattered throughout time. Nate must find a way to rescue season one’s beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal.
When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC’s Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms – the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).
Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.
Elsewhere of Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, we know Matthew MacCaull will play the original Commander Steel, along with Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Vixen and Power Rangers star Sarah Grey as Stargirl. Patrick J. Adams will also likely appear as Hourman, following his arrival in the first Legends of Tomorrow finale, while Arrow star Stephen Amell will pop up in the October 13 premiere as Mayor Queen.
This year will also see the Legends team going up against a Legion of Doom of sorts, comprised of Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Captain Cold (Leonard Snart), Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher).
We’ll surely hear more of Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 soon, but in the meantime, watch the first trailer below.
