We have a whole season of Cicada but all of one episode of Boomerang or Abra Kadabra - that's more than a little weird. Frankly, the fact that the Flash has refused to concentrate on building up the Rogues as a proper threat or at least constant presence in the life of Barry Allen, is one of its biggest failings.
    Well, it's partially this show's fault for stealing Cold and Heat Wave when the Flash was actually building up to the Rogues .

    Captain Boomerang never even showed up on The Flash. He was in the Arrow half of the first Flash/Arrow crossover and then appeared in the season 5 finale of Arrow.

    Okay, so fun question (which everybody can answer): Suppose you had the power to transfer Constantine to Swamp Thing, however, Blue Devil has to be on the Legends; will you make the transfer?
    Yes, absolutely. Blue Devil would be a much better fit. My main issue would be whether they can properly portray the character, preferably without CGI.

    Yeah, I thought they should have introduced new versions of Heat Wave and Captain Cold.

    I was sure that he showed up on the Flash, Says a lot about how impactful he was.

    Power of love! Loved it, loved the show. My favorite of the CW.

    I think Zari will be back.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I guess we'll see what they do with him on Swamp Thing.

    Ah-ha! I knew that girl that played a young Kara Danvers looked like a young Sara Lance! Now we get Sara dressed as Supergirl! That says something about Supergirl's reputation if she's well known on an Earth in which she doesn't even reside (and judging by the crowd of little girls wearing Supergirl costumes, she's pretty well admired on Earth 1).

    I was hoping for Damien Darhk to appear in Hell, but instead we got Vandal Savage. That was random...why were he and Ray getting along, again? Astra and historical villains for next season? Hope they don't go too comedic.

    While I'm glad Nate wasn't offed, and it was nice he got to see his father one last time, the emotional punch for me was Zari's story. Hearing about how these events changed the timeline and saved her family, that was nice...and with the consequence of her brother appearing in her place!

    And without her powers, unfortunately.

    They were definitely going for public domain characters this time around with magical creatures. Although my first exposure to Baba Yaga was through Fables, which was a DC Comic, so that kind of worked for me.

    Considering the role the Rogues played in "Underworld Unleashed", I'm disappointed Mick didn't interact with Neron.

    Well, Boomerang managed to appear in a DCEU movie, which is more than any of the other Rogues can say for the time being.

    I love Mick being a good guy and more importanly, being independent from Snart.
    He grew so much as a character since Leonard died.

    I actually liked how they called back to Nate's 'Hard Pass' comment from around the crossover//

    "Why didn't you get the real heroes to do this?"

    Sara: "They all said hard pass."

    Nate: "Should have done the crossover."

    Great! So help me form a petition and I'll mail it to the DC Streaming service!

    To illustrate Ray is full of compassion to make him a perfect member of the Indigo Tribe when Arrowverse does Blackest Night/Brightest Day.

    Astra and historical villains for next season? Hope they don't go too comedic.
    I don't mind if the Legends defeat Charles Manson by showing him what RuPaul did with his land

    Maybe with Mithra, she'll be the new Dragon Queen.

    Ditto.

    Supergirl did help save Earth-1 three times already and she is one of the few women on Earth-1 with superpowers so I guess she had gotten some press by now.
    And her costume does stand out compared to the usual female costume. I think she is about the only female superhero who wears a skirt and cape as part of her
    costume, on Earth-1 anyway.

    I can't believe I completely missed the obvious! You what the Legends could have done? Vampires! Have Andrew Bennett as a guest and have Ray and Nate annoy him with vampire questions.

    Example:

    Nate: "So are you more of an Anne Rice vampire, or Twilight vampire? I mean, do you fry or sparkle in the sun?"

    Ray: "Or are you more like the vampires from Preacher?"

    Nate: "Right; forgot about that."

    Andrew (now completely exasperated): Stop talking!

    Thank you for your time and patience for tolerating my small weird opinion.
