“Beloved Superhero” To Kick Off Legends of Tomorrow Season 2? “Beloved Superhero” To Kick Off Legends of Tomorrow Season 2?
Which "beloved DC superhero" might show up in the Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 finale? “Beloved Superhero” To Kick Off Legends of Tomorrow Season 2?

This week’s Ask Ausiello at TVLine.com has some Legends of Tomorrow nuggets – including discussion what “different characters” for Season 2 might entail.

More interesting to us, though, is Ausiello’s hint that the Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 finale will feature a “beloved superhero from the DC canon” whose mysterious agenda serves as “a launching off point for Season 2.”

Any guesses for who that may be?

Booster Gold would be our first guess, except they’re supposedly making a movie about him.

Ted Kord? He’s supposed to be in the Booster movie.

The most beloved DC superhero of all, the Martian Manhunter, is already a part of Supergirl.

Could it be a Bat-character, like Nightwing or Oracle? What if it’s the real Jay Garrick?

Is it someone we’ve seen before, like Connor Hawke or Vixen? “Introducing” makes it sound like that’s a no.

Guess we’ll find out May 19 when the final airs… though, you’re all welcome to leave guesses in the comments section below.

    Impulse, maybe?

    Sure, they could introduce him on The Flash as the grandkid of the Earth-2 version of Barry and Iris, but it might be cooler / more interesting to tie back into Eobard Thawne and the future newspaper from Season 1 of the Flash – have Bart Allen be some relic of a timeline that has been undone. Impulse is quite often introduced as coming back in time to prevent something bad from happening, too, so that could tie in nicely for Legends.

    Doctor Fate might be another option, too. Not so much a time travel character, but he does have ties to the Hawks, and there are all sorts of different incarnations of Doctor Fate, with different people wearing the helmet in different eras. Legends is as much about magic as it is about time travel, so he might fit in pretty well.

      People obviously care or we wouldn’t be talking about it.

    Oliver and Rip confirmed that Batman, Superman, and Oracle exist at some point in this timeline. My personal preference would be for a Bat to show up.
