Last week’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, was one of the best episodes to date. The Legion of Doom (and Mick Rory – Dominic Purcell), finally got their hands on the Spear of Destiny, and fashioned a new reality to their liking. Eobard Thawne (Matt Lescher) became the head of S.T.A.R. Labs, as well as the smartest and richest man in the world. He also had Stein and Jax (Victor Garber, Franz Drameh) as his work slaves, and Ray (Brandon Routh) as the janitor. Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) reunited with his entire (alive) happy family. Damian Darhk (Neal McDonough) was the mayor of Star City, and had his goons, Amaya and Sara (Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Caity Lotz) take out all the superheroes, including vigilante Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), and has an impressive mask trophy case. Snart (Wentworth Miller) and Rory robbed banks with no challenge. Everyone except Thawne was dissatisfied. When geeky Nate (Nick Zano) went to Thawne for help because he somehow knew that time was messed up, he ordered the boys to kill him. Mick couldn’t go through with it, and they hooked up with Ray, who invented a gun to restore their former memories. They fixed most of them (except Stein), and after a bunch of fights, Thawne prevailed and destroyed the spear, locking them in that reality forever.

DC’s Arm-Fall-Off-Boy To Join The Arrowverse
Dr. Zaius   |  

April Fools Day Arm-Fall-Off-Boy

“My power will astound you! Observe as I detach my limb, and transform it into a deadly weapon!”

— Arm-Fall-Off-Boy

That name has to be a joke right. Right? But no, it’s far too real. Arm-Fall-Off-Boy was created by Gerard Jones and Curt Swan and had his first appearance in DC Comics in Secret Origins Volume 2, #46 in November 1989. The futuristic hero has the unique ability to detach his limbs and beat his enemies down with them. Since Marvel is raking in the dough with obscure heroes from their catalog like the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Netflix’s Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, DC figures if you can’t beat them, join them, and is literally scraping the barrel for forgotten characters.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Legends headed to World War I where J.R.R.Tolkien (yes, that one) could point them to the Blood of Christ, needed to destroy the Spear of Destiny, which was now whole and whispering to them. They got the blood but lose the spear via Leonard Snart (not in Mick’s head). Mick (Dominic Purcell), sick of being on the outside, joined the Legion of Doom, and changed the fabric of reality. Many Lord of the Rings references splashed throughout this episode, including a speech by Rip (Arthur Darvill) clearly meant to inspire Tolkien.

Last week on Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) was brutally tortured both physically and psychologically at the hand of Adrian Chase aka Prometheus (Josh Segarra). Chase was and is clearly insane, but he was able to break Oliver in ways that the other villains have not. He made Oliver admit that he enjoyed killing. That admission made Oliver put the blame of everything on himself (more than he usually does), and he returned to the lair to tell them it’s over. He quit.

Last week on The Flash, all my dreams came true as Barry and the Barettes did a few musical numbers. Also a Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow-ish crossover (latter 2 and The Flash came from Arrow), a villain called the Music Meister (Darren Criss, Glee) trapped Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) in a musical dreamworld, mentioning The Flash (Grant Gustin) as he exited. Mon-El and J’onn (Chris Wood, David Harewood) brought her to S.T.A.R. Labs for help. The Music Meister got pinched, but not before he sent Barry down the rabbit hole as well. The rules were they had to move the story (of forbidden mob love), along with performances of some snappy numbers. Here’s where Gustin, Benoist, Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Victor Garber (Stein), and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) got to show off their chops with some awesome original and cover songs. My favorite, “I’m Your Superfriend,” was written by Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – my new guilty pleasure), and was a complete delight, with Benoist and Gustin using comedy and tap to make me smile. Everything worked out – Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) and Mon-El and Kara reconciled and escaped the dreamworld, because the Music Meister wasn’t a villain at all. He did this for love. This episode also showed off Gustin’s funny side.

Last night on Supergirl, a musical was briefly mentioned as a suggestion for a movie from Mon-El to Kara (Chris Woods, Melissa Benoist). Then… at the end of the episode, an alien was brought in who spoke to Kara, “I’ve been looking for you.” He breaks out of his cuffs and whammies her with his eyes. She passes out and opens her eyes to a dream state where she is all dolled up and pushed onstage to sing.

Two weeks ago on Arrow, the jig was up as Prometheus leaked to the SCPD that the Green Arrow killed Officer Malone. Oliver (Stephen Amell) explained the real reasons, but then it was leaked to the press. Impeachment loomed and Vigilante attacked. Oliver was worried about Thea (Willa Holland) as she was displaying characteristics of their mother. Thea resigned to find herself. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) fixed the Susan Williams (Carly Pope) situation. Paul asked Curtis (Echo Kellum) for a divorce. Prometheus was revealed (to the audience) as…

Last week on The Flash, Savitar kept messing with Wally’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) mind. Julian (Tom Felton) reluctantly went under so Barry (Grant Gustin) could talk to Savitar. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) confessed she kept a piece of the philosopher’s stone, which turned out to be a good thing. As long as it wasn’t whole, Savitar was trapped in the speed force. Unfortunately, Wally threw the other piece in, freeing Savitar and trapping Wally. Jesse (Violett Beane) turned to HR (Tom Cavanagh) for dad comfort.
