Out just in time to get you ready for their fall premieres are four titles whose characters have super abilities—- some aimed at doing good, some at evil, and some who struggle in between.
First up is DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the story of Time Master Rip Hunter who seeks to avenge his murdered family and stop the machinations of their killer, Vandal Savage, along with the corrupt Time Masters who support him. Helping Hunter in his quest are superheroes The Atom, White Canary, Firestorm, Hawkgirl, Hawkman, Captain Cold, and Heat Wave. In Season Two, following the successful destruction of the Time Masters, the team (now including new members Citizen Steel and Vixen) must not only guard the timeline from aberrations but also face a new enemy in the form of the Legion of Doom. This team of time-traveling super villains (which includes the Reverse Flash along with past versions of Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Darkh, and Captain Cold) seek the Spear of Destiny so that they may re-write their own fates. With the prospect of facing their own alternates, the Legends will have to fight harder than ever before to protect Time itself and ensure their own survival.
Now out on Blu-ray and DVD is DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season. Bonus features include a ten-minute featurette (“Allied: The Invasion Complex – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), the 2016 DC’s Legends of TomorrowComic Con Panel, a few deleted scenes, and a gag reel. On Amazon, you can snag the DVD for $29.99 and the Blu-ray for $33.39. Amazon and iTunes both offer streaming options for a season price of $24.99 and both include the Comic Con panel as an extra (iTunes also includes the “Invasion Complex” featurette). Since iTunes includes the bulk of the bonus content, it might be worth considering if purchasing the season in disc form (which features-wise just gets you the addition of the deleted scenes and the gag reel) is worth paying $5 – $8 more, or if it’s better on this one to just go for the streaming option and save some coin.
