Alienating a Hero: Max Landis Talks Superman: American Alien

At some point in our life, we’ve all read a Superman comic, seen a Superman movie or watched a Superman cartoon or TV show.  With a history that now extends over 75 years, we likely know the Man of Steel better than we know some of our friends and family. We know all about his life, his friends and his enemies. We know his powers and we know his history. In fact, there’s very little about Superman that we don’t know.

One Perfect Panel: Light Arms Fire

One Perfect Panel is a recurring feature that identifies and examines noteworthy comic book panels, presenting them for your appreciation and discussion. Some of these panels will be epic in scale, while others will be quiet character beats, but all will be masterful in composition and impact.

What We Love: 2 Broke Geeks Share Their Favorite DC Characters

Since the new DC Fans YouTube channel launched late last year, we’ve been highlighting a few of our favorite DC Verified Fan videos to debut on the channel. If you’re unfamiliar with our new YouTube channel, every video on it was shot and created by fans like you. Many of these videos debuted previously on YouTube and are simply shared by us, but the DV Verified Fan clips are ones that were created specifically for the DC Fans channel.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow (2016 - Present)

In the year 2166, the immortal villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) is on the verge of his final victory – total chaos and the utter destruction of humanity. As the world crumbles, the Time Master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) takes matters into his own hands; he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected team of heroes and rogues, who together will be… Legends.

Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller), known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel), who are really Hawkgirl and Hawkman, two souls who have been reincarnated many times, and who possess the ability to fly… and have a spiritual connection to Vandal Savage.

Convinced by Hunter to join him in the fight to defeat Savage, the group travels back and forth through time to try to stop Savage’s plans from being set into motion, while Hunter struggles to keep to his duty as a Time Master and avoid irreparable damage to the timeline of history.  The fate of the world is in the hands of this unlikely team, and the battle to save the earth will be legendary.

Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC's Legends of Tomorrow is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” "Supergirl"), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”), Phil Klemmer ("The Tomorrow People," "Chuck"), Chris Fedak ("Forever," "Chuck"), and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash").
