"DC's Legends of Tomorrow" Introduces a New Character From the Comics

via Comic Book Resources

SPOILER WARNING: Major spoilers from "Legendary," tonight's episode of The CW's "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," follow. At publication, the episode has yet to air on the west coast.

There's lots to talk about after "Legendary," the first season finale of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow." And we'll get to all of it just a bit in our recap.

But first, let's talk about Rex Tyler.

DC Comics fans also know him by Hourman (he's one of three), and tonight, he showed up in the final moments of "Legendary." With Vandal Savage dead, the world saved, and the timeline restored, the Legends (sans Hawkman and Hawkgirl) are about to head back to their ship. But then the clouds open and another Waverider comes crash-landing to Earth. Out steps Tyler, hood and all, telling Rip and his team that they need to come with him. After all, he's with a little organization called the Justice Society of America.

As Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim told The Hollywood Reporter, we can expect to see many of Hourman's teammates next season. But who will it be? Everyone from Batman (unlikely) to Power Girl (maybe) and the original Sandman (hopefully?) -- not to mention numerous already-existing characters in the Berlanti Universe -- have all counted themselves among the JSA ranks over the years. Unfortunately, we probably won't know who will be showing up for quite a while, so don't hold your breath (unless you have a superpower that allows you to do that for a very long time).

Check back with CBR later tonight for our full recap of the "Legends of Tomorrow" season finale.
