We already think Legends of Tomorrow is the most comic book TV show we’ve ever seen. But for that assessment to hold any weight means the show really needs to have some good fight scenes. That’s non-negotiable. Luckily, last night’s episode only confirmed that LoT is going to be one beautiful slugfest, week after week.


Last night’s “Pilot: Part 2" is bookended by two action-packed clashes of good and evil. With Heat Wave and Captain Cold slinging the elements, Ray Palmer knocking out henchmen with 1mm haymakers, White Canary doling out roundhouse kicks, and Firestorm delivering his own brand of nuclear justice, these fights are crazy, chaotic, and insanely fun to watch.

This widespread chaos is in addition to LoT’s talent for staging close combat scenes (i.e. bar fights), as we saw in White Canary’s brutal throwdown from last week’s episode.

Legends of Tomorrow: Come for the fights, stay for... more fights.
