From more DC Comics superheroes to comedic space adventures.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was an unexpected addition to the slate of DC Comics adaptations. With a patchwork of characters from across the CWVerse (then called the Arrowverse), no one knew what to expect from the show when it aired in 2016. After a couple of inconsistent seasons, the show eventually found its stride and, six seasons in, remains one of the more irreverent and enjoyable additions to the franchise.
The uniqueness of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is that it can (and has been) anything and everything a show could want to be. There are space adventures, time travel, costume changes, drama, romance, investigations, superhero antics, plenty of comedy, and even aliens. The creators have found a way to tap into genres for almost every demographic. The show also embraces diversity and inclusiveness like few others—the main cast currently has more female characters than male, and includes queer and BIPOC representation as well.
