Tonight, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow finally returns after its mini-hiatus as Sara Lance, Ray Palmer and Kendra Saunders got left behind in the 1950s after Chronos attacked Rip Hunter and the rest of the team on the Waverider.

Franz Drameh, who plays Jax Jackson a.k.a. Firestorm, was there to talk about Jax’s arc in the second half of

Just as my ComicMix cohort, the Legend of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow Denny O’Neil, I have jumped gently back into the TV fracas again with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

But my gaze is far more acutely focused on but a single moment from the first episode of the CW’s titular team up.
Shortly after The Doctor – um, I mean Rip Hunter – has pitched woo to each of his would-be Legends, we’re treated to the monotony of joining each member as they pack up their lives to go adventuring. With seemingly everyone on board, we assume smooth sailing… until we reach the immaculate home of Professor Martin Stein. There, amidst his country bumpkin bric-a-brac, Stein and his young ward (Jax Jackson, because all »

When DC's Legends of Tomorrow airs its series premiere on The CW Thursday, January 19, fans will be introduced to plenty of familiar faces from Arrow and The Flash, along with a slew of new characters from the DC Comics.

Here's what executive producer Marc Guggenheim had to say about bringing on Jonah Hex, in a statement to Variety.
"Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West. But if you're going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply »

Yesterday, new photos from The Flash set in Vancouver revealed that Robbie Amell is coming back as Ronnie Raymond, who was one half of Firestorm in the first season. Since he was spotted wearing his Firestorm costume, and Franz Drameh's Jax Jackson has taken over as the new half of Firestorm with Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber), many have assumed that Robbie Amell will be playing the Earth-2 version of Firestorm in the back half of The Flash Season 2. Today, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the actor will in fact be playing the Earth-2 version of Firestorm, entitled Deathstorm.
"We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash. You can't keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he's back with a twist, a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm."
