Vandal Savage Confirmed As Legends Of Tomorrow Villain
Vandal Savage Confirmed As Legends Of Tomorrow Villain!
So I think all of us by now have heard of the new Legends of Tomorrow TV Show! – And as with a super team, you need a super villain! – So who’s powerful enough in the DC Universe to challenge the combined might of the Legends of Tomorrow? – The answer is Vandal Savage!
Vandal Savage is one of the DC Universe’s biggest villains, and will be joining The Legends of Tomorrow’s cast as season one’s main villain. The CW confirmed during their Upfront event this morning, the immortal villain will test the might of The Atom, Captain Cold, Heatwave, Hawkgirl and the rest of the gang. The announcement also lines up with The CW’s synopsis earlier this morning, which also teased that the Legends would be fighting “An immortal threat.”
Savage’s presence might be able to explain why time-traveler Rip Hunter is also on the team. Perhaps Hunter has witnessed Savage’s menace throughout time, and knows that only a team of heroes can stop his latest bid for global domination?
No matter Savage fits into the story, he definitely seems like the perfect fit for the Legends of Tomorrow, and the CW Universe as a whole. He’s strong and supernatural enough to give the team a worthy challenge, but not unrealistically powerful like other villains in the DCU.
