We’ve known for a while that the Justice Society of America would be making their small-screen debut in Season 2 of Legends Of Tomorrow – now, we have our first look at the team, who as you’ll see from the below gallery, are fittingly Golden Age in their appearance.
Among their number are Nate Heywood/Citizen Steel (Nick Zano), Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl (Sarah Grey), Todd Rice/Obsidian (Dan Payne), Hank Heywood/Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), Amaya Jiwe/Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Dr Mid-Nite (Kwesi Ameyaw), and Rex Tyler/Hourman (Patrick J Adams), who of course appeared in the Season 1 finale.
Anyways, here’s the synopsis for their debut episode, fittingly titled ‘Justice Society Of America’:
The Legends travel to Nazi-occupied Paris, but find themselves surrounded by the Justice Society of America (AKA JSA.) The Legends discover a time aberration that threatens the JSA, but the JSA wants nothing to do with them or their help. Nevertheless, the Legends force their way into the JSA’s mission to intercept and seize a mysterious package. Nate (Nick Zano) is desperate to prove that he should be part of the team, but he has a secret that he shares with his grandfather Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull) that might make it difficult. Ray (Brandon Routh) is so focused on impressing the JSA, he puts himself and Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) in danger. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) has stepped in as the leader with Rip (Arthur Darvill) gone, but when decisions aren’t being made Sara (Caity Lotz) seems to be the one calling the shots. Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star. Michael Grossman directed the episode written by Chris Fedak & Sarah Nicole Jones.
