DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Why Season 3 Is the Best Season Yet

Legends of Tomorrow Season 3
Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 will return with John Constantine enlisting the help of the Legends in the present day on an exorcism.

Legends of Tomorrow isn’t one of the hit shows on the CW or the favorite for DC shows. After their rocky start in Season 1, they have made a tremendous stride to provide a spectacular season filled with interesting plots and the team as strong as they have ever been. Even with only half of Season 3 shown, it has become the best season of the series so far. Here’s why.

‘The Flash’: The Legacy of Captain Cold

Captain Cold
Wentworth Miller depiction of Captain Cold in the Arrow-verse has left such a mark on the character, taking him from C-list villain to DC icon, that, before he leaves, it is time to look back and appreciate how much of an impact he has left.

Let’s talk about Captain Cold. Before The Flash debuted in 2014, a general audience wouldn’t know who he is. Even comic book fans would have a hard time thinking of anything to say about the character. No real, major storylines in the comics to draw from. He was not a fan favorite. Yet in recent years, Captain Cold has joined the ranks of the DC villains pantheon to fans, and a lot of that is due to Wentworth Miller’s fantastic performance on the CW’s The Flash and Legends of TomorrowWith the sad news of Miller’s departure from the Arrow-verse and his welcome return to the screens as the heroic doppelgänger Leo Snart AKA Citizen Cold, I think it is time to look back and appreciate the major contribution Wentworth Miller left on the character.

The ‘Arrow’-verse Has Too Many Heroes

The Arrow-verse, which started strong with Oliver Queen coming home from his five years away after being stranded on Lian Yu, has grown dramatically since those first episodes, and now The CW has five superhero-themed shows slated on the network. But when is it too much?

The fact is there are too many heroes in the Arrow-verse. Deny it all you want, but Crisis on Earth-X (the four-way crossover event between Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow) definitely showcased this fact, too. While it’s good for big, eventful fights, like the fight against the Nazis, there just isn’t enough time for every hero to get the focus they deserve, and the numbers keep growing within the separate shows.

Crisis on Earth-X: Why Nazis Were a Poor Creative Choice

Crisis on Earth-X
The annual Arrow-verse crossover on The CW is arguably one of the most talked about television events, but this year’s crossover is getting more heated criticism than praise, which could come as a surprise for some.

It’s not often the four superhero series (Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow) come together to produce an epic battle between good and evil, but it’s become a regular event to draw viewers from every show and boost the ratings, all while tackling interconnected plots between characters from different series. However, as “Crisis on Earth-X” is crossing Earths and delivering Nazi versions of our beloved characters from Earth-X, an Earth where the Nazis won WWII, it’s alienating fans in a way never done before… which is hard to do, considering how many women and POC they’ve alienated by killing off characters.
