Now on to the meaty part! As a big fan of the new contemporary superhero television series, the DC's Legend of Tomorrow first look is simply bad-ass. We know that not everyone will be satisfied with how DC will interpret the beloved DC characters and storyline, and this is why DC is doing it right when they separated the DC Cinematic Universe from the DC Television Universe. Most of those familiar with the DC Comics Universe have expressed that this is the Justice Society made for television which is spot on as the Justice Society and its incarnations are simply various DC superheroes teaming up minus Batman and Superman. Well, for a detailed explanation or break down of what Justice Society is, you can always check the Justice Society on Wikipedia. Who knows they might make an appearance (this is me with a wishful thinking).

DC's Legends of Tomorrow is DC Television Universe Justice Society of America Live Action

The Legends of Tomorrow cast of characters includes Dr. Martin Stein a.k.a Firestorm (played by Victor Garber), Ray Palmer a.k.a The Atom (Brandon Routh), Sara Lance a.k.a. White Canary (Caity Lotz), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), Kendra Saunders a.k.a. Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée), Mick Rory a.k.a. Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Leonard Snart a.k.a Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Vixen, and Vandal Savage appearing as the main antagonist of the season. Well of course Arrow and Flash will be making their appearance on the show but this series will be more focused on it's main protagonists mainly Atom, Firestorm, Hawkgirl, Vixen, Rip Hunter, White Canary, Captain Cold, and Heatwave. Since it is going to be in 2016, the guys at The CW have a lot of time setting up characters like Hawkgirl with its own spin-off series and how Sara Lance formerly known as Black Canary lived to become the White Canary. It gives off an Avenger (movie) feel to it when the Legends goes up against Savage's men. Well it is only natural for an "immortal" super villain mastermind to have minions, right? Why do we need a band of unlikely team if there isn't anyone to pummel? Also The Atom finally shrinks. Will he show it in Flash and Arrow television series is beyond me, but The Atom's original ability form the DC comics universe is to shrink (equibvalent to Marvel's Ant-man). I am also looking forward to see the chemistry and how the varying attitude of the team blends in given that it is a mixture of heroes and villains (referencing the Flash being double-crossed by Captain Cold in the Flash season one television series.)
