10 Things That Actually Happened In Legends Of Tomorrow

National Superhero Day 2022 was not kind to the fans of The CW's Arrowverse. Shortly after "Batwoman" got the ax from the network, it was announced that "Legends of Tomorrow" had been canceled and would not be returning for another season. Following the conclusions of "Arrow," "Supergirl," and "Black Lightning," that just leaves "The Flash," "Superman & Lois," and the upcoming "Justice U" to carry on this long-running corner of the DC Extended Universe.

Unfortunately, now that the crew of the Waverider has been grounded, the series ends on a pretty big cliffhanger. While there's still a chance that they could get closure on another remaining Arrowverse show, the team consisting of assassin Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), highly intelligent clone Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan), scholar/former Citizen Steel Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), Air Totem wielders and siblings Zari Tomaz/Tarazi (Tala Ashe) and Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian), sorceress Astra Logue (Olivia Swann), alien Gary Green (Adam Tsekhman), the human embodiment of the ship's AI Gideon (Amy Louise Pemberton), the time-displaced Esperanza "Spooner" Cruz (Lisseth Chavez), and father of time travel Gwyn Davies (Matt Ryan) is currently in the custody of the Time Police thanks to Mike aka Donald Faison's Booster Gold.

However, instead of dwelling on their uncertain futures, let's take a look back at the Legends' past to celebrate the time that we all had together. Throughout their run on The CW, this team has been on some wild escapades. In fact, these trials and tribulations may be incredibly weird out of context and definitely do not sound like actual things that happened on television. But here are ten moments featuring the Legends of Tomorrow that made for some of the most fun (albeit WTF-worthy) adventures across all of space and time.

Sara's alien abduction is solved with David Bowie's help

When the fifth season of "Legends of Tomorrow" came to a close, the team said goodbye to Maisie Richardson-Sellers' shape-shifting Fate and punk rock musician Charlie in 1977 London. But they unintentionally lost another team member when Sara Lance was abducted by aliens during their last hurrah together.

As season 6 kicked off, the team slowly but surely reunited after their wild night and realized that Sara was nowhere to be found. When they retraced their steps in the hopes of finding their captain, they find Nate talking over his relationship woes with none other than the Starman himself, David Bowie. As he strums a new tune called "Space Girl," Ava realizes that he's singing about Sara. Bowie reveals that he saw Sara's abduction with his own eyes and even got footage of it with his Super 8 camera. After taking the footage, Ava wiped the legendary musician's memory and the team went off to track down their fearless leader.

The Legends keep George Lucas from abandoning filmmaking

During the show's second season, we follow the team as they are tasked with fixing all the aberrations caused by the treacherous trio of Damien Darhk, Eobard Thawne, and Malcolm Merlyn, aka the Legion of Doom. One such disruption nearly caused George Lucas to give up his legendary filmmaking career. While working as a prop master on the film set of an amnesiac Rip Hunter, Lucas got caught up in an altercation between the Legends and the Legion of Doom. After he nearly gets caught in the crossfire, he declares "No film is worth your life" and drops out of film school.

Also at that moment, Nate Heywood (Citizen Steel) and Ray Palmer (The Atom) start to lose their memories and, in turn, their superpowers. The team realizes that because the two of them never saw "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Star Wars: A New Hope" respectively, they don't become inspired to become a historian and a scientist. So while they're stuck in a Death Star-esque trash compactor looking for a piece of the Spear of Destiny, George gets hyped up by Nate, Ray, and Amaya to truly believe that he was meant to be a filmmaker. Once he believes in himself and his future, the timeline is restored and the Legends leap into action to save the day.

The Legends start a sorority to defeat Dionysus

Following the events of the "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover, the fourth season of the show takes a more mythical turn. The Waverider crew is after historical figures that have returned to the timeline, who have been dubbed Encores. To aid them in their fight, they're looking to reassemble the Loom of Fate. However, in order to use it properly, it requires three immortals at the controls.

While searching through ancient artifacts, the Legends come across Dionysus' chalice, which has the ability to grant immortality to anyone who drinks from it. Nate recognizes it from his undergrad days at Hudson University, so the team travels to his alma mater to enter the Chug Challenge, an epic drinking contest hosted by Dionysus and his fraternity that determines who can drink from the cup. Following in the long-standing tradition of raucous and debaucherous college movies, the Legends must start their own sorority after they fail at rushing the existing ones in order to enter the competition and beat Dionysus at his own game to earn the right to use the chalice. And in the end, that game ends up being beer pong.

Ernest Hemingway hunts a minotaur

During the fourth season, the Legends add magical creatures to the list of things they have to clean up from the timeline. When Time Bureau Director (and Nate's dad) Hank Heywood (played by the incomparable Tom Wilson of "Back to the Future") drops by the Waverider for a surprise inspection to find ways to cut down their budget, he joins them for a mission to 1920s Paris.

Once the team hears about a monster lurking in the catacombs from Salvador Dali, Hank enlists the aid of his idol Ernest Hemingway to show Nate and the Legends what "a real man of action looks like." The hunting party traverses the labyrinth underneath the City of Lights and finds a minotaur. Though Hemingway tries to best the beast's ax with his rifle, he ends up "strategically retreating" with the rest of the team.

William Shakespeare gives Romeo & Juliet a superhero twist

The Legends' mission to rebuild the Loom of Fate brings them to Elizabethan England. As they look to recover the missing piece that they tracked down in that time period, the team crosses paths with Charlie's old friend, William Shakespeare. As it turns out, the Bard was formerly in possession of that piece, but he traded it to his producer in order to buy more time to come up with an ending to his new play, "Romeo and Juliet."

Shakespeare's writer's block is remedied when he sees an all-out brawl in the pub featuring superpowers, future tech, and a team of very inebriated Legends. Armed with a new direction and an ending for the play, one of Shakespeare's most famous works turns into "Romeo v. Juliet: Dawn of Justness." We don't get too many details about the #ShakespeareCut, but we do know that Mercutio's skin turned to steel in the alternate version before the team set things right and restored the classic tale to the version that generations have come to know and love. 

Gorilla Grodd tries to assassinate Barack Obama

When the Legends get a call from Rip Hunter in season three saying that Gorilla Grodd is going after Barry, they're unsurprised to hear that the Flash needs some backup. Although, in this particular instance, it's not Barry Allen that needs help.

When we last saw him, Grodd was attempting to kill President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968 Vietnam. Apparently, he's determined to wipe at least one Commander In Chief from the timeline because with the help of Damien Darhk, the giant telepathic gorilla is sent to Occidental College in 1979 to "make America Grodd again" by eliminating Barack "Barry" Obama. Luckily, despite having to deal with Amaya causing an anachronism and the demon Mallus at the same time, the team manages to save the future President of the United States when The Atom uses his shrink ray on Grodd and stores him in a jar for safekeeping.

Mick Rory is impregnated by an alien named Kayla

"Legends of Tomorrow" has paid homage to or borrowed elements from some of the most beloved movies of all time. But who would have thought that the time-traveling superheroes would take a page from a romantic comedy? Although, when the genre gets an Arrowverse twist, it's certainly unlike any Hallmark movie you've ever seen before. And that's due in large part to the aliens.

Renowned criminal (and celebrated YA author) Mick Rory reconnected with an old flame named Ali at their high school reunion and unknowingly fathered a child named Lita. Determined not to be a terrible dad like his own, Mick vows to be a part of Lita's life. Although, that becomes a little harder for him when she gets pregnant. Eventually, he cools off on the idea, but he then has to deal with his own pregnancy. Eat your heart out, "Father of the Bride Part II."

Yes, you read that right. While continuing to spread his "wildfire" across space and time in between Legends missions, Mick had a fling with a power-hungry Necrian space lord named Kayla (who was also once betrothed to Gary Green). After their night of passion, he abandoned her on a planet, but not before she laid her eggs in his head. While that might put a damper on most relationships, Mick and Kayla end up reconciling and living happily ever after, just like any good rom-com.

The Legends are almost killed by a puppet

Loss can haunt anyone. When Dr. Martin Stein tragically died, that loss certainly hit the Arrowverse very hard. But when you're on a team of time-traveling superheroes that occasionally dabbles in magic and mythical creatures, it can quite literally haunt you. This turned out to be the case when the Legends faced a Dybbuk, a dislocated soul of someone so wicked that their soul had never crossed over to the afterlife. This particularly malevolent spirit belonged to Mike the Spike, a once-famous serial killer and now magical fugitive that created an aberration in the timeline by possessing dolls and committing murders in 1856 New Orleans.

Eventually, Mike finds his way onto the Waverider and uses Leo Snart's Martin Stein puppet as his new vessel for mischief. Rather than its original purpose to heal the team through therapy, the puppet aims to hurt as many of them as possible. Mike manages to maim Ava and Ray before Sara subdues him with a well-placed kick during the season four episode "Hell No, Dolly." Although, the puppet voiced by Paul Reubens pops up again multiple times throughout the season, including as a performer at the Heyworld theme park in the season finale.

A demon is cuddled into submission

In the season three finale, the Legends have finally collected all six totems necessary to defeat Mallus. Their strategy is to unite the powers of the totems to create an unstoppable force of good to triumph over the demon of the highest order. So when Sara, Nate, Amaya, Zari, Mick, and Wally West are tasked with thinking of something pure to defeat Mallus' darkness, there's only one thing that could possibly come to mind: Bebo.

Similar to Tickle Me Elmo and Furby, Bebo was the must-have toy of 1992 in the Arrowverse. The Legends first encountered Bebo as a team when an anachronism was created due to a hoard of Vikings worshipping a time-displaced Bebo doll as a god. But his best appearance came when the Legends joined together Voltron-style to form a giant Bebo to fight Mallus in an epic final battle. After trading blows (and a German suplex), Bebo uses a massive flying hug on Mallus as they both come crashing back down to Earth. With a cloud of blue, heart-shaped smoke, the ancient time demon finally met its defeat thanks to a good cuddle.  

The Legends battle historical figures to Sisqó's Thong Song

"Legends of Tomorrow" has had a number of memorable musical moments throughout its seven-season run. From a drunken Wally and Rip singing "Careless Whisper" at karaoke to Damein Darhk getting resurrected and murdering people to "Return of the Mack" to Ava Sharpe's jazzy rendition of "Poison," there are some definite bangers on this show's soundtrack. But by far the weirdest and most fun needle drop of all came during the season five finale.

The Legends find themselves in an alternate timeline where the Fates rule society and discourage free will. In an effort to subdue the heroes and stop them from destroying the Loom of Fate, the three sisters (including the reluctant Charlie) summon the Encores of Rasputin, Joseph Stalin, Marie Antoinette, Julius Caesar, and a caveman to eliminate the crew of the Waverider. Things come to a head when the two factions collide in a museum designed to show citizens the downfalls of free will.

As they prepare for battle and arm themselves with Shake Weights and pogo sticks, Nate and the Legends pass an exhibit dedicated to "The Thong Song" by Sisqó. But rather than dutifully marching off to battle, Steel activates the display and initiates the summer anthem to double as their song of war. And to top it all off, Sisqó actually guest stars in the episode to perform his hit song in the scene. 

Fighting to "The Thong Song" might be one of the best examples of the most random, yet incredibly fun moments that "Legends of Tomorrow" brought to the table. Again, it's a shame that it didn't get to end properly and on its own terms, but at least we have great memories like these to look back on fondly. And with any luck, maybe the Legends can get one last hurrah on one of the remaining Arrowverse shows before the long-running CW staple completely comes to a close.
