LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Preview: Going Back in Time to Save the Future

legends of tomorrow

Over 100 years into the future, Vandal Savage has nearly destroyed humanity in the series premiere of LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. So Time Master Rip Hunter travels back to our present day and assembles a team of heroes and villains to help defeat Savage.

Aboard their time traveling ship, the group goes back and forth through time to try and stop Savage’s plans from being set into motion, while Hunter tries to avoid damage to the timeline of history.

But the group is rather ill-matched. You have billionaire inventor Ray Palmer, who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance, the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson, who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart, known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory, aka Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders and Carter Hall, who are really Hawkgirl and Hawkman, two souls who have been reincarnated many times, and who possess the ability to fly… and have a spiritual connection to Vandal Savage. Can all of these people work together to save the future?

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW will premiere on January 21 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
