Legends of Tomorrow: There Will Be Brood

The Legends of Tomorrow are usually a fun bunch with some weird adventures. I’ve heard about some of the changes coming up, and not liked any of them. Well, they’re making me less happy in how they’re getting there, as they make some questionable choices this episode.

Legends of Tomorrow: Bored on Board Onboard

For this episode, they find assorted different problems stemming from them being “Bored On Board Onboard.” We don’t really see any major plot advancement here aside from a few small side scenes, but there’s some weird fun and some “This could only happen to you guys” moments.

Legends of Tomorrow: Bad Blood

One of the problems with Legends of Tomorrow (aside from the title no longer making any sense at all) is the size of the cast. They have too many players, and even when they cut someone (I still miss Ray), they tend to fill their slot almost immediately.

Legends of Tomorrow: This Is Gus

The Legends of Tomorrow have been going through more changes than usual lately. Between people coming and going, characters going through assorted changes, and shifting goals for the season, the status quo has been bending a lot. They do more of that, but also go to great lengths to undo at least one change in “This is Gus.”

DC Comics screws over Legends of Tomorrow and its fans with inane decisions

All of which makes one of the most recent decisions by the head honchos at DC utterly incomprehensible. John Constantine has been a popular character in DC’s darker titles for many years. He was the lead character of a movie that had mixed reviews at best, and was also the lead of a short-lived tv show on NBC. Fan reaction to the cancellation was so strong that the character, played superbly once again by Matt Ryan, made an unexpected guest appearance on Arrow, thus becoming part of the growing Arrowverse. That one appearance met with great approval from the fans, and Constantine found his way to Legends of Tomorrow, adding some mystical muscle to the team. He’s been a great addition and provided some snark, sexual tension, and bi representation, which is unfortunately rare. Now, suddenly, because of an upcoming project from JJ Abrams on HBO Max, the show has been told they can’t use the character any longer.
