The show makers have signaled Legion of Doom storyline for the season 2. A fascinating thing about Legion of Doom is they didn’t have comic book origins, instead they first appeared on a Justice League animation movie in 1970’s called as “Superfriends”. In the show, it will consist of Time Criminals Reverse Flash/Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Damien Darhk (Neal Mcdonough). It has begun with Damien Darhk meeting Reverse Flash whereas Malcolm Merlyn and Captain Cold has been brought in from different timelines.
Recently, on the Wave Rider, Martin Stein & Jackson found something very unusual, a secret cabinet which Captain Rip Hunter has been hiding from the entire team. They discovered an elaborate techno-lab filled with heavy weaponry and an audio message from Barry Allen in the year 2056. He is saying to Captain Hunter that he couldn’t endanger any more lives and that he must not reveal this piece of information to his team. What’s the message all about? Why would Barry Allen of future send a message to Captain Hunter while he is traveling through time?
Well, there is now a strong possibility that Barry may be having critical information about Legion of Doom who may be responsible for mass casualties in the future and he is giving a heads up to Captain Hunter. In the mid-season finale, Sara traded the mystical amulet with Reverse Flash for the life of Prof. Stein. He discovered that the powers of the talisman may be beyond anyone’s imagination, he talked about “spear of destiny”, a powerful artifact (reality gem) that can be used to reshape time & space. All he now needs is an artwork buried somewhere in the sands of time to activate the weapon he has already assembled.
What is the one thing he always wanted to accomplish?
Erase the existence of Barry Allen without erasing himself from the timeline. Well, now he has the ultimate weapon to rewrite the reality and keep speed force intact.
