The Legends

A mysterious figure called Rip has shown himself capable of finding diamonds in the rough, tracking down heroes hard on their luck or criminals looking to balance the karma in their ledger. This man of mystery offers these peculiar heroes a home and a chance to right their wrongs, promising everything from a sense of purpose, riches, or a chance at a wiped clean criminal record... provided that when he calls with an assignment, they answer the call and do so until their contract is up (which can range from ongoing to years to a handful of months or even a single mission).

How Rip manages to fulfill his promises remains to be seen but rumor is that this Rip is connected to a mysterious organization with vast connections.


The type of work that is required of the Legends seems to be picking up what falls through the cracks. The tasks given to them run the gambit of minor and seemingly random (like secretly making sure that some widower accountant has a 'chance' encounter with a particular single mother) to world-saving and nigh-impossible (stopping an assassination attempt in Atlantis or rescuing a kidnapped alien princess from Apokalypse).

    In General 
  • Amazon Brigade: With the exception of Rip Hunter and Danny the Street, all known members of The Legends are females. This is also been lampshaded by the team aliases are known as "Rip's Angels" or "Danny's Angels".
  • Anti-Hero Team: Much more lax on killing than Team Arrow, Bat Family or the Outsiders.
  • Badass Crew: They're a group consisting of some of the renowned badasses in Earth-27.
  • Cast Full of Gay: Sarah and Thea are bisexual, Roxy is pansexual and Tanga is Omnisexual. The only straight ones appear to be Rip Hunter and Rose Wilson.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Much to Rip's frustration, the team insists on being heroes even when it's in their best interests to lay low.
  • Composite Character: While based on their Legends of Tomorrow incarnation, they consist mostly of original members who haven't even appeared in said series.
  • Destructive Savior: Things have a tendency to get chaotic while they're doing their heroics.
  • Eldritch Location: Danny the Street also serves as the Legends' Headquarters and their primary mode of transport.
  • Janitor Impersonation Infiltration: One of the disguises the Legends use on missions.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The Legends are composed of a former League of Assassins member, an archer from Team Arrow, a Titans alumna who is the daughter of Deathstroke, a C-List Reformed Criminal and a Human Alien.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: Only Rip Hunter and Sara Lance are part of the Legends of Tomorrow, Thea is more associated to Team Arrow, while the rest of the team hasn't even appeared on the Arrowverse.
  • True Companions: Ultimately the Legends come to see themselves as one big (dysfunctional) family.

    Rip Hunter

Team Leader. Man of Mystery. Works for a mysterious benefactor. Claims to know just about any famous person brought up in conversation.

  • Adaptational Backstory Change: Rather than a time traveling hero working for the Time Masters and Linear Men in the comics, here he's working for the Department of Continuity so the timeline remains stable.
  • Badass Beard: Had some pretty nice facial hair to go with his trenchcoat.
  • Badass Longcoat: He sports a brown trenchcoat.
  • Badass Normal: He has no powers, only equipped with a high tech, futuristic revolver. Also, while not quite to the level of Sara or Thea, he is still quite an exceptional fighter.
  • Beleaguered Boss: The Legends are initially led by the long suffering Rip, who is Authority in Name Only, as no one listens to his orders.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Naturally.
  • The One Guy: The only male currently at the Legends.
  • Team Dad: He is a rather begrudging one. He's essentially taking care of group of nine-year-olds who won't listen to him.

    White Canary (Sara Lance)
Click for Civilian Look 

Field Commander. The first recruit of Rip's newest incarnation of Legends. Having put a lot of red in her ledger from past sins committed as a member of the League of Assassins, Sara is looking to win back the favor of the hero community, but more importantly, restore her faith in herself as a human being.

  • Amazon Chaser: Sara's not exactly picky, but she's shown an attraction to Action Girls.
  • Animal Motifs: She loved canaries long before she joined the LoA.
  • Badass Family: She's the daughter of Laurel Drake/Songbird and Dinah's younger sister.

After so much fighting, all it took was Dinah to admit she was wrong and apologize to bring Sara back... though with regrets.
  • Genius Bruiser: On top of being an expert martial artist with League of Assassins training, she demonstrates proficient biology and technology skill which she learned from Ivo and the League (enough to make Felicity jealous).

  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Blonde haired and she's a pretty good person despite her training with the League of Assassins.

  • Of Corsets Sexy: The White Canary costume is also a corset.

  • Le Parkour: One of her many skills learned from the League of Assassins.
  • Simple Staff: Sarah mainly uses a staff that can disconnect to form batons as her primary weapon (though was shown to be skilled with other weapons as well).

    Sin (Thea Queen)
Click for Civilian Look 

Sara's deputy, best friend and later girlfriend. More than Sara, Thea was devastated by the League of Assassins and Sara rescued her from suicide by alcohol. A deeply disturbed woman, Thea has more than her share of demons to work through, and Rip has promised to help her do just that.

  • Seven Deadly Sins: Her codename Sin and her right arm tattoo represent the seven deadly sins. She killed seven brothers leaving the name of one of the seven sins near their body, Thea was given the name Khatiya (or Sin in arab) and she memorized the deed by tattooing her flesh.

    Ravager (Rose Worth-Wilson)
Click for Civilian Look 

Daughter of Deathstroke, Titan alumna, and all-around badass. Rose joined up to 'have fun', 'have a roof over her head', 'have friends', or whatever other excuse she gives in conversation. Her actual reason for joining is known to only herself and Rip.

  • Anti-Hero: Strongly Pragmatic one. Rose will not only be able to hold her own against the likes of Batman and Black Canary (with help from her enhanced physical attributes and mental processing power), but she could have skills like piloting helicopters, advanced first aid, and other particularly useful skills.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her civilian costume shows her navel.
  • Birds of a Feather: Coincidentally, she and Helena Bertinelli share the same birthday.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's a strange case. She's a mercenary... but seemingly prefers to not kill and takes jobs to prevent contract killings. She's not averse to killing, however, and will maim at the drop of a dime.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A classic wit of her character. She's quick with sardonic remarks, especially at the Legends' expense.
  • Dual Wielding / Katanas Are Just Better: She currently wields twin energy katanas that can cut through anything except flesh, and briefly merge into an energy shield.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Just like her dad.
  • Eye Scream: Slade had El Penitente experiment on Rose, in hopes of making her a candidate for their upcoming plans on Gotham. With the brainwashing nearly complete, the Titans showed up to rescue their compromised comrade and made a permanent enemy out of her father. Rose realized her father was still spying on the Titans through her left eye (the only working eye Slade had himself) by way of their psychic connection. Proving her loyalty as a Titan above all, Rose borrowed a batarang and carved out her left eye, the shock severing much of the psychic link between father and daughter for good.
  • Has a Type: She mentions she has a thing for redheads.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: She has two half-brothers and she's the only daughter of Slade Wilson.
  • Photographic Memory: Rose can perfectly remember and instantly recall everything that she have ever experienced, encountered or learned in her lifetime. She needs only to read, hear or see something once and she will never forget it. Her mind has unlimited storage capacity for any and all kinds of memories and knowledge without any burden.
  • Seers: She has limited precognition, which is later explained as her brain going into overdrive and analyzing every detail it can to give her a clear mental picture of probable events.
    • Combat Clairvoyance: She is sometimes able to use her precognitive abilities to 'see' her opponent's next moves, although her visions come and go.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Rose has beautiful white hair, but is an unrepentant Professional Killer and Blood Knight.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Injected with the same serum that enhanced her father Deathstroke, Rose has increased reflexes, stamina, and strength, but is also prone to psychotic episodes.

    Roxy Rocket (Roxanne Sutton)

Pilot extraordinaire and all-around adrenaline junkie, Roxie has decided to try being a good guy for a bit (though she doesn't know if she'll go 'straight for good' yet). Rip has promised her a shot at a clean record if she sticks with him.

  • Ace Pilot: Roxy is incredibly talented in the use of aerial vehicles including airplanes, jets, and helicopters. roxy is particularly known for piloting her jet-bike from which her moniker of "Roxy Rocket" is derived.
  • Affably Evil: The only reason she's considered evil is because of her tendency to endanger others with her love for thrills.
  • Anything That Moves: She's pansexual and is a former lover of Danielle Cassidy and Kevin Hester/Onomatopoeia.
  • Badass Driver: Roxy is incredibly capable behind the controls of nearly every vehicle due to her stunt training.

  • Goggles Do Nothing: In her case, she wears them whenever she rides.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She has a nice figure and wears a form-fitting out that provides a cleavage.
  • Not Afraid to Die: Though Roxy is not suicidal, she is not afraid of dying in pursuit of what she calls "the ultimate rush".
  • Reformed Criminal: Not that she was very evil to begin with, but now she helps save the world while doing all sorts of dangerous things rather than provoking them.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Her younger sister is Kathleen 'Kathy' Sutton, who in the comics was Red Tornado's wife.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: She's a thrill-seeking redhead with green eyes.
  • Thrill Seeker: The main reason she became a criminal in the first place.
  • Wrench Wench: Roxy is a particularly adept mechanic, particularly with the repair and modification of vehicles - especially aerial vehicles. Roxy has built a number of unique vehicles. Her overall ability in this field is very exceptional, bordering on world-class level of expertise.


Alien powerhouse. Tanga does not make a very good hero, even though she has all the powers to be a great one. The Lantern Corps has grown tired of having her under their supervision and were eager to quietly hand her off to Rip.

  • Adaptive Ability: She can adapt to survive different conditions, although it's not clear if it's a species thing or she's special.
  • Amusing Alien: She's a weird alien woman without much knowledge about Earth, so she can be rather amusing to watch.
  • Anything That Moves: She's Omnisexual.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: Somehow she developed the ability to survive in the vacuum of outer space.
  • Color Motif: Purple.
  • Flight: Can levitate and fly in space.
  • Hand Blast: By channeling her internal reserves of vorpal power, Tanga can emit a vorpal blast from her hands or eyes. This looks much like a pink or purple light. It also gives off a potent "strawberry"-like scent in its wake.
  • Hero with an F in Good: She may have good intentions and has all that's necessary to become a hero, but her clumsiness turn her into a nuisance.
  • Human Aliens: She's not that different from a human besides her skin and pointy ears.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's 6'2"/188cm tall, and not bad looking at all.
  • Token Non-Human: She's currently the only alien on the Legends team.
  • Womanchild: She's rather immature and easily distracted.
  • X Days Since: She will be free from being supervised by the Lanterns if she can go a whole year without incident. Her current record: 3 days.
