Part two of the four-part Rebirth event, “The Button,” dropped this week in THE FLASH #21 and, unsurprisingly considering the titular hero, it hit the ground running...but maybe not where you’d expect.
Well, Legends fans, here we are. Finale time.
Before we start this week, I just want to thank all of you for coming along on this adventure with me! It’s been an incredible (and incredibly eventful) season across the board and I’ve had an absolute blast getting to talk about it here every week. I hope you’re as excited as I am to see where Season 3 goes because...man, for all the solutions the team may have come up with this time around, they definitely have no shortage of new problems to tackle.
That loud booming sound you just heard wasn’t Barry Allen breaking the sound barrier. It was the collective “thump!” of all of our jaws hitting the floor at once as we got to the end of THE FLASH #19.
It’s a Heywood family reunion this week! Just, you know, without all the barbeque and cake and awkward aunts and uncles...and…well, anyone but Nate and his grandpa. Do two people still constitute a family reunion? Is that the proper use of that phrase?
So, the time has finally come. Our up close and personal look into the Legion of Doom is here and it’s...well, pretty intense, if I’m being honest. The Legion is anything but a well-oiled crime machine, but that’s to be expected, really, considering the desperation that pulled them all together.
And speaking of that desperation, let’s kick off this week by diving a little deeper into the source of Eobard’s fears: the Black Flash.
Welcome back, Legends fans! It’s been awhile! Hopefully you’ve had enough time to recover from last week’s “Invasion” before we hit the ground running tonight because, man alive, there is a ton to talk about.
With the Dominators out of the way, the Legion of Doom has rocketed to the forefront of the team’s agenda—and not a moment too soon because we’ve finally got some answers about their plans. Turns out Thawne has been recruiting people to go on a quest for the Spear of Destiny—a mythological artifact with all sorts of terrifying powers.
