Legends of Tomorrow may have been the most interesting Arrowverse show due to its time travel aesthetic throughout each episode of all seven seasons, up until its cancellation this year, and its unique use of familiar characters, historical characters, and settings. Below we’ve detailed Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 and how it compared to the previous seasons before it, the overall characters, general plot, and more from the third season of the fourth The CW Arrowverse show, Legends of Tomorrow.
Legends of Tomorrow
Legends of Tomorrow started in 2016 and ultimately ended this year as it was canceled, with the strange mix of characters from the existing Arrwverse and new characters each season, heroes and villains, to get familiar with. Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 introduced the original team of the Legends of Tomorrow that Rip Hunter recruited to stop a villain from his past on his way to greater power to conquer Earth. Overall, the Legends of Tomorrow travel through time to stop various events from disrupting the timeline. More often than not, there’s been a villain or two, at least, behind whatever events are negatively affecting the timeline per seasonal situation. Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 was when the characters appeared to be most capable and aware of the strangeness that comes with time travel, as they were nearly prepared for anything this time around.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 and Season 2
Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 featured the formation of the Legends of Tomorrow and Rip Hunter informing them of the true objectives at hand, stopping Vandal Savage in his ride to power before he could conquer the Earth and kill Rip Hunter’s family, as well as the Legends of Tomorrow and their fight against Chronos and the Time Masters as well, after learning of an alliance between the two. The end of Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 showcased Captain Cold and his continued change of heart, as seen in The Flash, as he sacrificed himself to destroy the Time Masters and end their villainous reign on time itself. From the events of the Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 finale, the Legends got back together following the disappearance of Rip Hunter and Nate Haywood’s search for the Legends of Tomorrow. Haywood searched for the Legends of Tomorrow to stop the Reverse-Flash and time-displaced versions of Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Darhk, and even Leonard Snart as they formed the Legion of Doom in search of the Spear of Destiny to change their lives against what the heroes have done to them.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Characters
Legends of Tomorrow Season 3, as with the previous seasons of Legends of Tomorrow, featured a new collection of heroes, new villains, and entirely new settings across time for our team to find themselves trapped and fighting in. New characters that joined Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 include the return of Rip Hunter and Damien Darhk, Damien’s daughter Nora, and even Wally West. Nora Darhk had been persuaded by the demon Mallus to do his bidding and get him released using six totems of Zambesi. Additional characters from the previous Legends of Tomorrow seasons that were present during Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 include Gideon, Firestorm, Sara Lance, Heatwave, and others, such as Isaac Newton and Helen of Troy, and other historical figures. Outside of the main storyline within Legends of Tomorrow Season 3, which has always been the darkest element of each season, Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 started to lean more into comedy outside of its general plot compared to the previous seasons of the show.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 3
Legends of Tomorrow, the fourth Arrowverse show after Supergirl, Season 3 focused mainly on creating the Time Bureau, replacing the corrupt Time Masters that the Legends defeated at the end of Season 1 and disbanded the team. However, when an agent of the Time Bureau goes missing, the Legends of Tomorrow are formed again by Rip Hunter to solve the disappearance. While Rip Hunter had started a new, much less corrupt version of the Time Masters and shut down the Legends, he ultimately needed them when the time came to do what the Time Bureau could not. Overall, Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 ended with a sacrifice from Rip Hunter to save the team, similar to the Season 1 finale with Captain Cold, so the demon Mallus could be destroyed, but that only opened the door for the future of Legends of Tomorrow with John Constantine. Additionally, as with Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, The Legends of Tomorrow had one episode of their set for the season as a crossover episode with the rest of the Arrowverse. For the second crossover appearance of the Legends of Tomorrow, the crossover was the extremely dark Crisis on Earth-X.
