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.
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 Tomorrow. With 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.
