Finally, it looks like DC is ready to challenge Marvel for the Group Superhero Team Championship. Yes, I know I had recently said that about the whole prime-time character set they had put together for the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the film where we get to see a major chunk of the Justice League for the first time. After all, they really were DC Comics most popular super-group, and the only possible opponents in theaters against the Marvel Avengers franchise. But they just up-leveled the entire process by putting together their own small-screen challengers to Agents of Shield, a series that features a lot of lesser known but just as important characters from both the Inhumans and S.H.I.E.L.D. story lines. How could DC Comics possibly go up against them? With Legends of Tomorrow, which feature Arrow, Flash, Atom, White Canary, Hawkgirl, and a few more, out to save not a city, but the world. I particularly like the fact that they brought in Doctor Who companion Rory as Rip Hunter, the Time Traveler who put the team together. Thanks to Topless Robot for the links to the videos!
