Worst to First: Ranking the DC Superhero TV Shows
4. Legends of Tomorrow
Ran from: January 21, 2016 – present
Channel: The CW
Heroes: Firestorm, the Atom, White Canary, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Heatwave, Vixen, Citizen Steel
Villains: Vandal Savage and the Legion of Doom
Notable Guest Stars: Characters culled from the other CW shows
What’s Good: Of all the superhero shows out there, Legends of Tomorrow has the craziest premise. The show started by assembling some of the more memorable guest stars from Arrow and The Flash and then putting them all on a time machine. The line-up has changed as characters have been written out and new characters have replaced them. Over time, the tone of the show has gotten goofier and that’s a good thing. From week to week, you never know what to expect from Legends. But after an uneven first season, the show has been consistently entertaining.
What’s Bad: While not as straight-up silly as the sixties Batman, Legends mixes a lot of humor in to its superheroes. The team creates most of its own problems. The time-travel premise creates massive plot holes that you can either choose to ignore or let them ruin your enjoyment of the show.
Verdict: Not for everyone, but Legends can be a fun deep dive into the DC Universe.
