The CW has released an official synopsis for episode 2 of DC's Legends Of Tomorrow and it teases some major time travel related paradoxes as the team of heroes pursue the deadly villain, Vandal Savage. Check out the description for episode 2 (Pilot, Part 2) below:
"Tipped off to Vandal Savage's (guest star Casper Crump) whereabouts, the team infiltrates a munitions deal with Professor Stein (Victor Garber) as their leader. Surrounded by some of the toughest criminals in the world, things quickly go from bad to worse when Savage realizes they don't belong there. A massive fight ensues and a piece of the Atom's (Brandon Routh) suit falls off and into the wrong hands, which could potentially cause disastrous consequences in the future.
Stein realizes the best way to retrieve the missing piece is to contact a brilliant man — his younger self. He, Sara (Caity Lotz) and Jax (Franz Drameh) head off in search of young Martin Stein (guest star Graeme McComb), much to Rip's (Arthur Darvill) consternation.
Meanwhile, Snart (Wentworth Miller) and Rory (Dominic Purcell) plan to steal a key element in defeating Savage but still unsure of his new teammates, Ray (Brandon Routh) demands to come along on the mission. Carter (guest star Falk Hentschel) helps Kendra (Ciara Renée) remember something vital."
Official synopsis for Legends Of Tomorrow premiere episode (Pilot, Part1)
"In the year 2166, the immortal villain Vandal Savage 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 takes matters into his own hands; he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected team of heroes and rogues to stop him.
Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer, who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance, the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein and Jefferson "Jax" Jackson, who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart, known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory, aka Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders and Carter Hall aka Hawkgirl and Hawkman."
DC's Legends Of Tomorrow premieres on 21 January on The CW.
