Hey there Movie Pilot! Comic-Con is finished, but we’re still recovering from all the awesome news that was unleashed! While there are many other posts I’ll be writing regarding the news, I’d like to speculate a little here. Legends of Tomorrow was confirmed to be getting not 1, not 2, but 4 villains this season! Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Darkh, Captain Cold, and Reverse-Flash will band together as the Legion of Doom, CW’s first super-villain team. Now, the Legion of Doom originated back on The Challenge of the Superfriends as a group of 13 villains to oppose the Justice League of America. While it’s expected the Legion will start slow, who’s to say more villains won’t join in the future? With that, let’s take a look at six Villains that could join this deadly lineup.
1. Count Vertigo
Appearing in Arrow Season 1 and then ultimately being killed in Season 2, is Count Vertigo. However, the New 52 version has appeared in Season 3. Count Vertigo in Arrow uses the drug Vertigo to disorient his opponents, and using it as a weapon. Count Vertigo would be a welcome addition to the Legion of Doom, giving the Legends a sort-of-telepath to deal with.
2. The Clock King
Here’s another Arrow villain to add to the fray, William Tockman, or better known as Clock King. Clock King doesn’t have any abilities, but he is extremely smart and is an excellent planner, often carrying out his plans by the second. I’m assuming that The Legion is gonna need someone to help with plans that need to be carried out, and Tockman is just the guy.
3. Weather Wizard
The Flash has produced an astounding number of villains in it’s two season, but Weather Wizard is a big one. Mark Mardon controls weather, basically. He has created tidal waves and snowstorms, and the height of his power is pretty high. Mardon would be a real powerhouse for the Legion.
4. The Trickster
Out of all the characters on this list, this is the one I’d love to see most! The Trickster uses toy themed weapons to commit dangerous crimes, and is played by none other than, Mark Hamill! After having two appearances on the Flash, joining up with other villains would be great.
5. Gorilla Grodd
One of the original members of the Legion, Gorilla Grodd! The telepathic super ape was last seen on Earth-2 among the other members of Gorilla City, but since Darkh and Snart are dead (As well as Thawne to some extent), it wouldn’t be hard to pluck Grodd from somewhere down the line. After all, he’s an original member…
While Toyman and Trickster are kind of similar, this would also be a good pick in case Hamill couldn’t reprise his role. While Toyman on Supergirl is older, the show could pick up a younger Toyman from before and use him. Plus, Toyman is also an original member.
Tell me if I left out anyone big that you’d like to see!
