Warning: This story features spoilers from the season finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
In an interview with TVInsider, Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim discussed the arrival of Patrick J. Adams new character…
So what does Rex Tyler bring with him? I know you’ve talked about a hard reset for the series in Season 2.
Yeah, it’s a pretty hard reset. Basically Rex represents the Justice Society of America. Patrick’s lovely and having him be a part of the show is just a total dream come true. Doing Hourman on the show is also super exciting to us. But what really got our motors running was, it’s not just Hourman, it’s Hourman saying, “I’m over there with the Justice Society of America.” We’re going to do Justice Society of America next year.
The cast is going to get even bigger?!
Yes and no. We are going to meet another super team. Whether or not they all become members of the Legends, that is probably not going to be the case. There’s going to be two super teams depicted on Legends next year, I will definitely say that.
Rex Tyler, or Hourman was first introduced in ADVENTURE COMICS #48 in the 1940s. Tyler was a talented scientist with skills in the field of biochemistry. While working with vitamins, he discovered Miraclo, a vitamin that provided super strength and speed. But there was a catch! When he took Miraclo, he discovered his extraordinary powers only lasted for an hour. Also, it was addictive. Tyler took Miraclo in order to be Hourman and eventually became a founding member of the Justice Society of America. He was also part of the Freedom Fighters and the All-Star Squadron. We here at SciFi Pulse can’t wait to see him and other members of the JSA next season on Legends of Tomorrow.
