What are the characters like?
Ray Palmer - Ray is super smart, a science prodigy, and also has a lot of
enthusiasm. Although he's very handsome, he was a lonely and bullied geek
growing up. He was a successful inventor who became rich. After his fiance Anna
was murdered, he developed a super-powered exoskeleton to fight crime. This is
how he became The Atom. His technology allows him to fly, and to shrink or to
get larger, as well as to shoot blasts.
Sara Lance - Sara was
thought dead and lost at sea, but she ended up in Nanda Parbat and joined the
League of Assassins. She was killed but resurrected, saved via the Lazarus Pit.
She is the hero White Canary and is in charge of the Legends since Rip left.
||Mick Rory - Mick was a villain, Heat Wave, along with his friend Leonard
Snart (Captain Cold). Mick is a pyromaniac (likes to set fire to things) and
thief. Mick was recruited to join the Legion but never considers himself a
hero. He was captured by the Time Masters and brainwashed into becoming the Time
Master Chronos. Mick eventually broke free of his conditioning and is back
to normal (more or less). Although he acts dumbs, it's clear that he's pretty
smart. He just likes to keep things simple. The death of his best friend
affected him deeply. Mick has no powers, just a big powerful gun that
shoots flames. Like all of them, he's good at fighting, too.
Jiwe - She was part of the Justice Society of America in the 1940's as
Vixen. She chose to join the Legends after she found out that a time traveler
killed her lover, Rex. She's from an African village and was given a
magical totem. This gives her the power to call on the power of any animal.
||Nate Heywood - Nate is a historian who learned about the Legends and
enlisted Oliver Queen to rescued them when they went missing. He's very
enthusiastic and, like Ray, a bit of a geek, despite being so handsome. He
was a hemophiliac and almost died, but he was injected by an experimental serum
that saved him. It also gave him the super powers to give him an instant
metal skin when he needs it. He's now the superhero Steel.
- Like Mick, Snart was a criminal. He was the brains of their operation. He
developed a cold ray gun that allows him to freeze things and people. He,
too, joined the Legends. He was never as gruff or unsocialable as Mick,
and eventually, he sacrificed himself to save the Legends when they were
fighting Vandal Savage. He's come back a number of times from the past.
His Earth X counterpart, Leo, has joined the team for a little while. This Snart is
gay and a much nicer person, who helps people with their feelings.
Zari Tomaz - She joined the team in 2042, where she was fighting against
A.R.G.U.S. Religion had been banned in that future, and she was part of a Muslim
family. The Legends rescued her and persuaded her to join their team. She
has an amulet similar to Amaya's, except it lets her control the air. Zari
has been hardened by the loss of her family. She presents a gruff exterior,
somewhat like Mick, and is very cynical.
||Gideon - Gideon is an advanced
computer program, or artificial life form. She's an interactive
consciousness programmed to operate the Waverider (the time machine ship
that the Legends use). We mostly just hear Gideon's voice, but
sometimes we see this disembodied head. She is very powerful and
has done many amazing things. She's related to the same Gideon that was
developed by Barry Allen in the future and used by Eobard Thawne.
||Rip Hunter - Rip was a Time Master,
but when evil Vandal Savage killed his wife and child, he went on a
personal mission to stop Vandal and save the world from this evil
machinations. This violated the rules set up by the Time Masters, so
they tried to hunt him down and kill him. Rip and the Legends ended up
stopping the Time Masters and Vandal, but he still lost his wife and
child. Rip is basically a hero, but he sometimes acts in his own
self interests. He can be very single-minded and sometimes sneaky. He
likes to be in control and doesn't like to let his guard down. He's a
great fighter and can be very ruthless. Sometimes he lets his anger get
in the way of his duties. Letting go of his grief has helped him to grow
up and become a better person and leader.
||Damien Darhk - Damien is a
merciless killer with a great sense of humor. Even though he is evil, he
also is great at justifying his actions for the greater good (as he sees
it). He was once a member of the League of Assassins. He
lived a long time, thanks to the Lazarus Pit, and built his power and
fortune over centuries. He has obtained magical abilities, due to
collecting ancient artifacts. He planned to annihilate the world with
nuclear weapons after building himself, his family, and people he
thought were important, an unground city to survive the nuclear fallout.
He was thwarted by the Green Arrow and his friends and killed. Earlier
in time, he teams up with Malcolm Merlyn and Eobard Thawne to control
reality, and they do for a time, until the Legends defeat them.
Damien was resurrected and teamed up with Gorilla Grodd, and his
daughter Nora, and the evil Mallus.
||Ava Sharpe - Ava is a high ranking
agent of the Time Bureau. She is very intelligent and ambitious. She
doesn't like the Legends at first but then worked with them to try to
defeat Damien Darhk. She admires the Legends, particularly Sara.
||Nora Darhk - Nora, who now goes by
Eleanor, is the daughter of Damien Darhk and his wife Ruvé Adams. Ruvé
and Damien both died in Star City, and Eleanor was adopted by someone
else. However, she later joined the Mallus cult and is helping her
father (now resurrected) in their plot to rule the world with magic.
She has magic as well as the ability to travel through time.
||Mallus - Mallus is some sort of
evil entity that can manipulated time and is feared by everyone. He can
possess the bodies of humans and considers himself a God.
||Jefferson Jackson "Jax" - Jax is
a former mechanic who then became a meta-human, part of the hero
Firestorm with Martin Stein. He didn't want to become a Legend,
but Martin forced him to go along. Jax forgave him and the men became
very close, like father and son.
||Dr. Martin Stein - Martin was a
professor of physics who developed Firestorm. He became part of
Firestorm as a metahuman when the particle accelerator exploded.
Martin knows about a great deal of subjects, including history, and he
was invaluable during the Legends missions. However, sometimes his ego
would get him into trouble. He was not a good leader, the one time he
tried, because he had trouble making quick decisions. Martin is very
kind and is married to a wonderful woman named Clarissa. They have a
daughter named Lily. Martin sacrifice himself on Earth X when all
of the superheroes were trying to save everyone from the Nazis.
