Now that the Legends of Tomorrow have basically destroyed the Time Council, what is their new mission in season 2? And which members of the Justice Society of America are coming to play? We hope to get some answers on that and much more during the Legends of Tomorrow panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. To prepare for the big event, EW is here to give you a refresher on what happened last on the super series.
Where we left off: The team killed off Vandal (Casper Crump) across three different time periods, successfully ending his reign. Snart (Wentworth Miller) sacrificed himself (but will be back) to save everyone and destroy the Time Masters and Oculus, which means time can no longer be manipulated. Kendra (Ciara Renée) and Carter (Falk Hentschel) decided to leave the team, while Patrick J. Adams appeared as Hourman to usher in the Justice Society of America.
What we know about season 2: As previously teased, after saving the world, the Legends of Tomorrow now are charged with protecting time – the past, present, and future – itself. (Yes, they’re the new Time Masters.) This responsibility will take them across history, bringing them up against a threat unlike humanity has ever known. According to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, that new threat is even bigger than Vandal Savage. “People will be saying ‘Vandal who?’ by the time the big bad of season 2 is fully explored or fully revealed,” he says. Though the Legends lost a few members, the team will expand with the introduction of a new (or actually old) Vixen, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), who is Mari McCabe’s (Megalyn E.K.) grandmother, and Nick Zano as Dr. Nate Heywood, a.k.a Citizen Steel. And don’t forget that Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl will cross over for an epic event in December.
