DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” is a CW staple of action and adventure based on the DC comic characters Arrow and The Flash, along with many others in the “Arrowverse.” Rip Hunter — the main character of the series portrayed by Arthur Darvill — fights the evils of the organization that turned on him and attempts to avenge the killing of his family by the sinister Vandal Savage.
