The Flash: Let's Talk About Leo Snart

From the very first time we were introduced to Captain Cold on The Flash, I have loved every opportunity the show has taken to bring Wentworth Miller back in the role. I loved when he joined DC’s Legends of Tomorrow full time and then loved again when we were introduced to Leo Snart a.k.a. Citizen Cold during this year’s #DCTV four-way crossover event: Crisis on Earth-X.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: How to Win Friends and Exorcise Demons

Welcome back, Legends! It's been a pretty long hiatus, but I hope you don't need too thorough a refresher as we jump back into things because in true Legends of Tomorrow fashion, we're hitting the ground running with the tenth episode of this season.

And hey, John Constantine's here to welcome us back!

...Which is to say, uh, to perform some exorcisms. Technicalities.

Anyway!

Ten Moments that Mattered in 2017

Has it been a year already? 2017 has reached its end, but before we dive into 2018, we’d like to take a moment and look back. For DC fans, 2017 was a remarkable year in comics, film and TV. Our characters reached new milestones and audiences, our writers and artists achieved remarkable new heights and our universe continued to grow in surprising new ways. And yet, within it all, several moments stood out for their importance and relevance. Some of them were groundbreaking, others were a welcome return. All of them are worthy of acknowledgement and celebration.

A Shining Start to Freedom Fighters: The Ray

If you follow me as a part of the #DCTV Couch Club, you might remember that I elected to rant and rave about how awesome I thought Ray Terrill (as played by Russell Tovey) was when we met him and his boyfriend Leo Snart kicking butt as members of the Freedom Fighters on Earth-X.

Freedom Fighters: The Ray (2017 - Present)

All his life, Ray Terrill (Russell Tovey, Quantico, Looking) has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying superhero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this superhero looks just like him—because it is! The dying Ray Terrill of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a superhero—THE RAY. However, Ray quickly learns being a superhero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self, even if that means also finally coming out of the closet to his parents. The fate of Earth-X depends on it! Based on the characters from DC, Freedom Fighters: The Ray is from Blue Ribbon Content and Warner Bros. Animation, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Sam Register.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The Sweet and Bitter End

All right Legends fans, you made it. You're completely through this year's four-part crossover event…or, at least you should be. If you missed Supergirl, Arrow or The Flash this week, maybe wait to read this post! Legends was the finale of the event, so all spoilers are fair game here.

Sound good? Do I need to place a SPOILER ALERT bolded, underlined and in all caps here? No?

Great! Let's go.

The Flash: A Ray of Sunshine

I don’t know about you, readers, but I have been having an absolute blast watching this year’s “Crisis on Earth-X” four-part crossover event! I was a big fan of last year’s “Invasion” crossover, but thought it would be a huge bar for the teams behind these shows to have to clear. First, let’s acknowledge how awesome it’s been having all four shows completely involved in the quest to punch Nazis.
