[ 1 ] At some point during his childhood, Michael ‘s older self brought the younger versions of his team to stay there to protect them from The Pilgrim. As part of a ploy by his older self, knowing his childhood inclination, Michael was used as bait in a prisoner exchange, where he stabbed the Pilgrim in the leg with a knife, giving his pornographic self ‘s team the opportunity they needed to defeat her. Michael was presumably given an amnesia pill so he ‘d forget the consequence, thereby keeping his own future actions integral. [ 1 ] finally, Michael joined the Time Masters. As per their code, he took up the alias “ Rip Hunter, ” to avoid any enemies from targeting Michael ‘s ancestors thus erasing his universe. [ 1 ] He trained under the lookout of Time Master “ Zaman Druce “ and became one of his favorite students. [ 2 ] While training with them, Rip reached the membership of lieutenant. Against the Time Master ‘s code Rip fell in love with another candidate, “ Miranda Coburn. ” finally, Time Master “ Declan “ discovered their matter and they were both threatened with expulsion from the academy. Though Rip planned to hand in his resignation so Miranda could remain in service, Declan informed Rip that Miranda had already done the same thing. Though Rip was annoyed, as he considered Miranda the better Time Master, she had grown disillusioned with the cause but knew Rip could commit more than she ever could. Rip served as a Time Master for over a ten and developed a fear repute among Time Pirates. He traveled to numerous points across the timeline and claims to traveled centuries into the future. [ 3 ] At some target, while on a mission for the Time Masters Rip was sent to Calvert, Oklahoma in 1868 but after completing his mission, Rip was unable to leave, consumed by the expansive opportunities the era offered. He besides met bounty hunter Jonah Hex and the two became close friends. Jonah even gave Rip one of his coats.

[ 4 ] At some degree, Rip located the Spear of Destiny in Leipzig, 1956 and traveled there to retrieve it. While there, Rip sought the help of the Justice Society of America, a team of superheroes comprised of Henry Heywood/Commander Steel, Courtney/Stargirl, Charles/Dr. Mid-Nite, and Todd Rice/Obsidian. Rip told them about the spear and what it could do and they agreed to help him find it. however, Todd was not permitted to go on the deputation because the president of the united states “ distrusted ” him. [ 5 ] Rip, Stargirl, Dr. Mid-Nite and Commander Steel engaged the Soviets and retrieved the spear. however, they all agreed that the spear ‘s exponent was excessively bang-up for any one person to possess therefore Rip divided it into four pieces, one for himself and entrusted each JSA member with a musical composition. Rip then transported each JSA member to a different time zone to protect the spear pieces. He sent Courtney to Camelot in 507 AD, Charles to Detroit in 3000 AD, and Henry to Manhattan in 1965 AD. Rip returned to the Waverider and kept his while of the spear shroud within the transport, tied from Gideon. [ 6 ] At some item, Rip and Miranda got married and had a son, Jonas, whom Rip named in respect of his ally, Jonah Hex. [ 4 ] Rip was the beginning person to build a Time Sphere. Eobard Thawne implied that he met Rip at some point in the future referring to him as an “ matter to homo. ” Eobard besides used Rip ‘s Time Sphere as inspiration for building a 21st-century interpretation with Cisco Ramon as a entail to return to his own time.

Recruiting the Legends
I’ve seen darker days. I’ve seen men of steel die and dark knights fall, and even then I accomplished my mission no matter what.
—Rip Hunter[src]

By 2166, most of the world fell under the oppression of the immortal dictator Vandal Savage, with London being the last land untouched by his absolutism. One day during the Second Blitz, Miranda and Jonas were killed by barbarous during his rampage. Rip found their bodies subsequently, much to his grief. Seeking vengeance Rip addressed the Time Council in the Vanishing Point and requested that barbarian be removed from the timeline. however, the council reminded Rip that since savage was not exploiting clock time locomotion to achieve his goals, they were n’t permitted to intervene. [ 8 ] Unwavered by the council ‘s decision Rip stole the Waverider and traveled back to Ancient Egypt in 1700 B.C. before barbarian, or Hath-Set as he was known back then, became immortal. Sneaking into the royal palace Rip confronted Hath-Set but as he had the upper handwriting he hesitated to kill him, and Hath-Set ‘s bodyguards restrained him. however, Rip refused to tell Hath-Set his name, resulting in Hath-Set calling him “ Gareeb, ” and Rip was held in the dungeon. After weeks of being intentionally starved, Hath-Set asked Rip again who he was and why he tried to kill him, but Rip merely told him he was saving the world from his evil. [ 2 ] Rip finally made his escape by tricking the guard with a novelty pen from the 1970s. After failing to remove feral from history all in all Rip returned to 2166 and tried to rescue Miranda and Jonas before Savage killed them, but as they ran back to the Waverider, they encountered Savage ‘s shock troopers and the two were gunned down. After this, Rip tried numerous early times to save them, only to have exchangeable end results. Realizing that Miranda and Jonas could n’t be spared from their fates Rip alternatively opted to kill Savage sometime during his immortal life, thereby preventing the circumstances of their deaths in the first gear space. To do this Rip decided to recruit a team of 8 individuals from the twenty-first century whose actions had minimal impact on the timeline, thereby keeping the future of the twenty-second century entire. Rip traveled to January 2016 to Star City to recruit Dr. Ray Palmer/The Atom, a extremity of Team Arrow. Arriving moments after Atom had engaged some of H.I.V.E. ‘s Ghosts Atom initially held Rip at point but assured him he was n’t an adversary and used a device that rendered Atom unconscious. adjacent Rip traveled to Tibet to recruit Sara Lance/The Canary, a once asleep extremity of the League of Assassins and member of Team Arrow. After Sara fought respective men harassing a young woman Rip appeared and rendered her unconscious. Rip recruited Sara specifically because in 4 months Sara was fated to aid Team Arrow against Damien Darhk but would die along with her sister Laurel Lance/Black Canary deoxyadenosine monophosphate well as their father Quentin. next Rip traveled to Pittsburgh to recruit Firestorm, the merged superhero class of Jefferson Jackson and Professor Martin Stein. After Firestorm stopped a terrorist at a nuclear plant Rip appeared while Jax and Stein argued, and rendered them unconscious besides. adjacent Rip went to St. Roch to recruit Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl and Carter Hall/Hawkman, the 21st-century reincarnations of Savage ‘s enemies Prince Khufu and Priestess Chay-Ara and the only ones who could physically kill Savage. Rip found them arguing about a botch rescue deputation and suggested they seek marriage rede before rendering them unconscious. adjacent, much to Gideon ‘s confusion, Rip traveled to Central City to recruit criminals Leonard Snart/Captain Cold and Mick Rory/Heat Wave. Finding them chased by the patrol amidst a burglarize Rip rendered them unconscious .
Bringing the 8 individuals to Star City atop a rooftop, tampering with their weapons in case of hostilities, Rip introduced himself and explained that he had assembled them to help him destroy Vandal Savage. Hearing this came as jolt to Carter and Kendra as they had destroyed him months before with fleeceable Arrow and The Flash ‘s aid. however, Rip revealed to the couple that unless they deliver the end blow Savage will restore from a single cellular telephone. Snart and Mick, however, were uninterested in being heroes but Rip claimed that the 8 of them in his time are legends, stating that each of them was destined for greatness. however, this was a lie as the 8 of them were considered unimportant to the timeline. After showing the 8 of the video recording footage of the dystopian earned run average of 2166 he handed them an address to assemble in at 36 hours .
The future sidereal day Rip was please to see everyone decided to come and showed them around his timeship, the Waverider. To obtain more data on barbarian himself Rip plotted a course for St. Roch 1975 to visit Professor Aldus Boardman, an technical on the report of Savage. Rip explained that the date of their arrival is the day Aldus will die so the timeline will remain unaffected. After arriving in 1975 Rip asked Ray, Stein, Kendra, and Carter to accompany him but asked Sara, Leonard and Mick to remain behind, believing the mission did n’t require their skill set .
The team found Aldus in his office where they were shocked to learn that he was, in fact, the son of Carter and Kendra from a past life, who saw Savage kill them and had studied him since then trying to achieve vengeance. After Aldus provided them several notebooks on Savage, Martin sensed something was wrong and Rip ordered everyone spinal column to the ship. however, Kendra and Carter insisted Aldus come with them and Rip, reluctantly, agreed. Returning to the embark Rip was shocked to see Chronos attacking the ship. After holding him off retentive adequate to escape, Rip brought the team to the temporal zone to hide out, though Aldus was shot by Chronos before they could leave .
While there, Kendra angrily attacked Rip for getting Aldus killed and Rip last revealed that he was a erstwhile Time Master, who had, against orders, assembled them to kill Savage, and Chronos had been sent to stop him. He besides revealed to the 8 individuals that they were not legends, quite forgotten by history, and when Ray realized Rip ‘s actions were more personal than he led on, Rip confessed his on-key motives. however, he respected if anyone wished to leave and gave them time to think while he repaired the ship. Surprisingly everyone, moved by Rip ‘s dependable motives and realizing this was their probability to change their fates, decided to remain. [ 8 ]

Losing a team extremity

While still in 1975, thanks to Aldus Boardman ‘s journal, Rip and the team figured out where to locate savage : At an illegal weapons auction. When Kendra and Carter ask why ca n’t they go back and save Aldus, Hunter explained that they ca n’t change things they ‘ve already been involved in. He then explains that he has a room in the Waverider that can give them any outfit for any era. [ 9 ] When Snart and Palmer started arguing over who would take the point in the mission Rip reminded them that he was in care, only for Palmer and Snart to blow him off however angry that he had lied to them. When the team returned from the auction had failed to capture Savage, Hunter angrily yelled at them for not listening and revealed that during the battle Ray had dropped a piece of his courtship which Savage recovered and as a leave spread his seduction of the universe to the present class of 2016. fortunately, Hunter revealed that this was not even permanent and that they had time to stop this by retrieving the technology. When Ray reveals that the suit is powered by Alpha Particles, Stein suggests they track down his younger self who had created an Alpha Particle tracker. When Kendra and Carter uncover to the team that they have found an artifact that can kill Savage, Snart volunteers to go steal it back with Heat Wave and Ray accompanies them to make certain they do n’t get into trouble. subsequently when Ray, Snart, and Rory are captured by Savage, Hunter and the stay of the team come to their care and a huge battle breaks out. In the ensuing conflict, Carter is killed and Kendra is badly wounded by barbarian with the group scantily managing to escape .
once Kendra is stabilized, Hunter reveals to Stein, who had by chance recently precisely erased his marriage to his wife, that he suggested to his younger self to go to the seminar where they see young Stein and Clarissa together, saving Stein ‘s marriage. Later back on the ship Hunter attempts to lift the teams spirit up by pointing out that while they have not saved the future they have a least protected the present. He then gives the team the choice of finding another direction to stop savage or return to 2016 and live out the remainder of their lives. now determined to avenge Carter the team chose the former and proceeded to come up with a fresh plan. Carter ‘s soundbox was taken by Vandal Savage as a “ Vessel ” for a mystic ritual that would appease Savage ‘s cult followers, giving them longevity and evening ageless life. Among such servants was Mr. Blake, a banker of the Bruemberg Group, who met Rip Hunter and Sara Lance in his bank in Leipzig, while they were on a spying mission. Blake caught their bluff and attempted to slay “ Gareeb, ” but was unsuccessful .
Taken prisoner by Rip Hunter, Blake served as the team ‘s “ legislate ” into Savage ‘s cult gather. Although Rip Hunter ‘s team took Carter ‘s body back from savage, Blake and early servants still consumed Carter ‘s lineage, giving them longevity. [ 2 ] These early failures were later revealed to be part of Time Master Zaman Druce ‘s plan to manipulate history through the use of Oculus, assisting Vandal Savage and giving him an advantage in the form of the united states army of durable followers, angstrom well as cognition of futuristic technology, such as the A.T.O.M. Exosuit, and meta-humans, like Firestorm. [ 10 ]

While trying to figure out Savage ‘s following period, he then took his team to 1986 USSR, where he encounters an attack from the Time Masters along with Mick Rory, which injures Jefferson Jackson a.k.a Firestorm. [ 11 ] then, after Martin Stein, Ray, and Mick get catch, he sends Sara and Leonard to rescue them. He besides tells Sara to assassinate Dr. Stein if they fail in their plan. While rescuing their team, Rip encounters Vandal Savage where Savage gives back the locket with Rip ‘s wife and child ‘s photograph. But Rip planted the bomb calorimeter which temporarily kills Vandal Savage. [ 12 ]

Adrift in time

After being knocked out of the temporal zone by Chronos into Star City of 2046, Rip informed the team that the blue future of Star City is not set. Despite his protests, Sara demanded to go with him into the city. He then led a group including Mick, Leonard, and Sara to steal a man of engineering from Smoak Technologies that could fix the Waverider. however, bandits and Connor Hawke ambushed them separating Rip and Sara from Mick and Leonard. Grant Wilson and his men then cornered Rip, Sara, and Connor Hawke, but Connor helped them escape. Connor told Sara what happened to Star City but Rip advised Sara that she ca n’t change what happened and to focus on their mission. Connor then took them to a summation Arrowcave to find Felicity Smoak ‘s relocate projects. An older Oliver Queen then told them to go to a warehouse to find the technical school firearm. At the warehouse, they found the technical school they needed but Grant Wilson ‘s men attacked them and kidnapped Connor. Rip told Sara not to go after him but Sara went against him. Rip threatened to leave her if she did n’t return in one hour. After waiting 90 minutes, Martin convinced Rip to help her. Rip and the team then helped Sara and Oliver defeat Deathstroke and save Connor. Sara thanked Rip for backing her up. [ 13 ] After leaving 2046, the Waverider was unable to track Savage due to disused time data. Rip was holed up in his function watching a recording of Miranda and Jonas. Gideon then intercepted a distress bespeak from the Acheron, a timeship which contains the current timeline data. Despite the fishy circumstances, Rip opted to investigate. He led an away team with Martin, Jax, and Mick. however, time pirate captain Jon Valor captured Rip, Jax, and Mick on control panel the Acheron. Rip then used keywords to make Gideon fire upon the Acheron and later to cloak the Waverider. They were thrown in the brig, which besides contained Captain Eve Baxter, who was n’t pleased to see Rip. Rip and Mick then got into an argument with Rip admitting that he lone recruited Mick because he was a box manage with Leonard, after which Mick left to cut a deal with Valor. After Martin freed them, they led the Pirates into a trap. Rip fought off Jon Valor and used explosive decompression to suck the meter pirates into the vacuum of space. Captain Baxter then thanked Rip for the rescue and gave him current time data. Back on the Waverider, the team discussed what they would do with Mick since they could n’t let him have complimentary rivulet of the ship after his treachery. Leonard stated that sending him back to 2016 was not an option since that was where the team ‘s families were. He then said he would deal with his partner. [ 3 ]

Stranding the team in 1958

According to the Acheron’s timeline intel, Savage appeared in Harmony Falls, 1958. Rip and Leonard disguised themselves as FBI agents and asked the sheriff for data on the killings around town. The only thing they learned from the sheriff ‘s files was that Savage was good at covering up the disappearances in the township. After losing contact with Jax, Rip and Leonard found a car with Jax ‘s go steady Betty Seaver badly injured with talon wounds and Jax missing. meanwhile, Kendra and Ray stole the Amon Dagger from Savage so the team devised a plan to kill him. Disguised as a hospital worker and patient, Rip and Ray ran into Sheriff Ellison. As Ellison was taking them into detention, a manhawk appeared knocking out Ellison and allowing them to escape. Before the rest of the gang was on board the Waverider, Chronos attacked the transport forcing it to take off and leave Ray, Kendra, and Sara in 1958. [ 14 ] When Chronos boarded the Waverider, Rip fired at Chronos but they had to retreat further into the transport allowing Chronos to time jumps the transport. Firestorm burst onto the bridge finding Rip but discovering that Leonard had been kidnapped by Chronos. Rip then rebooted Gideon to override Chronos ‘ commands making them free-fall through time. They touched down in 1960 to pick up Ray and Kendra but discovered Sara had rejoined the League of Assassins. Rip snuck into Nanda Parbat and made touch with Sara but he found that she had reverted to her former self, loyal lone to the League and captured him. Rip challenged Ra ‘s alabama Ghul to a test by battle. however, Ra ‘s choose Sara as his ace, while Rip nominated Kendra which she accepted. Sara about killed Kendra but stopped herself at the last second having been reminded of who she rightfully was by Kendra. At that moment, Chronos attacked. Ra ‘s freed the Legends so that they could fight off Chronos. Through their combined efforts, they defeated Chronos but Leonard stopped them from killing him and they discovered that he was actually Mick Rory from the future. Rip recognized this as an opportunity to reform Mick so they kept him in the brig. Rip then told the team that their future target was Savage in the year 2147. [ 15 ]

Kasnia 2147

Rip apologized to Mick for lying to him and asked for his help, which Mick refused. Rip then proceeded with the mission into the Kasnia Conglomerate in 2147. They encountered Kasnia ‘s A.T.O.M. robots so they split up. Rip took Sara and Leonard to investigate Savage during a Conglomerate stockholder meeting using eye contacts to fool an eye scanner but Sara and Leonard were not permitted to enter. Rip listened in on the meeting where Savage argued to thin the population outside the Conglomerate ‘s borders but Tor Degaton vetoed the move. Rip followed Savage where he learned that Savage was a tutor to future tyrant Per Degaton. Rip ‘s design was to kill Per Degaton now before he could rise to office and provide beast with the beachhead he would use to conquer the earth. however, many on the team opposed this thus he compromised by opting to kidnap him rather. Rip, Sara, and Leonard went about kidnapping the child while the rest of the team deal with Tor Degaton ‘s A.T.O.M. automaton army. Rip then took Per to a cloistered area and tried to kill him but Rip could n’t bring himself to do it and pleaded for Per to do the right thing and refuse Savage ‘s tutelage. Rip then arrived at the view of a battle between Degaton ‘s forces and his team and offered to exchange Per ‘s liveliness for Sara ‘s. Per tried to talk his father out of the exchange but his forefather relented so the Legends escaped. Gideon told him that their efforts merely cemented Per ‘s lift to power and Rip reflected with Gideon if he did the right thing to spare the child. After a battle with Leonard, Mick then rejoined the team because both he and the team would have a reciprocal enemy in the Hunters, mercenaries hired by the Time Masters in inflame of Chronos ‘s failure. [ 16 ]

Hiding from the Time Masters

Rip decided to hide out in the town of Salvation in 1871 since this particular meter and place was a fragmentation invisible to the Time Masters. Despite his protests, the team decided to have a look around the town sol he outfitted them all with time-appropriate invest and weapons, but chose to stay behind on the ship. The team then returned with Jonah Hex who told Rip that Leonard had killed a penis of the Stillwater Gang, which would bring about retribution to the township and reminded Rip of Calvert. Rip hush remained on the embark when Ray accompanied Jonah Hex to attack the Stillwater gang. After the team returned with Jeb Stillwater but without Jax, Hex proposed a quick draw to exchange Jax for Jeb. Because of his lingering regrets of abandoning Calvert, Rip volunteered to duel. In the middle of the town, Stillwater ‘s crowd arrived with Jax. Jeb and Rip took their positions. Rip and Jeb drew their pistols, but Rip injection Jeb first base killing him and winning the duel. The Hunters arrived after the duel and attacked. Rip gives Jonah a laser revolver and they and the team defeated the Hunters. Before dying, one of the Hunters told Mick that the Time Masters had initiated Omega Protocol triggering the Pilgrim to go after the team. Rip and Jonah made amends and the team left Salvation. [ 4 ] To stop the Pilgrim, The team foremost headed to Central City in 1990 to save a unseasoned Mick Rory. After saving 2007 ‘s Sara Lance, the team lost the lead on the Pilgrim. Rip ruled out her going after Kendra and himself. When Ray started sustaining injuries, Rip and Firestorm rescued Ray of 2014. Rip and Mick then kidnapped neonate Martin in 1950. The respite of the team was successful in rescuing everyone ‘s younger selves then Rip took them all to the Refuge under the manage of Mary, a mother figure to Rip. Mary revealed to his team that his actual mention was Michael. Later, Rip and Mary reflected on how he ‘s originate and she sent him off with some mince pies. Gideon then intercepted a message from the Pilgrim threatening the team ‘s syndicate if they wo n’t turn their younger selves over to her. rake countered her necessitate with his offer of his own younger self before he became a Time Master. The team met her at an abandon Time Masters outpost where they turned over 10-year-old Rip to her. The team ambushed her but she held them off with her time micro-manipulation powers. however, young Rip stabbed her and she was subsequently destroyed by the team. Back at the Refuge, Rip said adieu to Mary. [ 1 ] now that most of the team ‘s younger selves were displaced in time at the Refuge, the team had very little time to complete their mission before the clock changes set and they were erased from being. Rip took the team to London of 2166 at the altitude of Savage ‘s rule. Rip took a mint team of Leonard, Mick, and Sara to strike at Savage. Rip and Sara cope with his guards and his daughter Cassandra, letting Leonard and Mick go after savage himself. however, Savage ‘s forces started to overwhelm them forcing the team to retreat to the Waverider. Rip then led Martin, Ray, and Jax to contact the remaining resistance forces. Rip shared with Ray his past attempts to save Miranda and Jonas. Later, they went with the resistance to investigate an attack on one of their camps. Martin and Ray subsequently discovered Savage ‘s superweapon was a giant automaton, The Leviathan, which was coming to rescue Cassandra, whom Leonard and Mick kidnapped earlier. The Waverider was attacked and damaged while trying to escape the automaton. Dejected, Rip was fix to wait for the Leviathan to destroy them, but Ray convinced him to fight on. Rip then led a second undertake on barbarian with Leonard, Mick, Sara, a reform Cassandra, and Kendra. Kendra got the upper hand on ferocious but she could n’t bring herself to kill him because he had brainwashed scythian Torvil despite Rip ‘s pleads to her. rather, they brought Savage and Scythian back to the Waverider. Rip visited Savage in the brig vowing to kill him and get his retaliation finally. [ 17 ]

return to the Vanishing steer

Rip and the team traveled to the Vanishing Point after capturing Savage and holding him hostage on the Waverider. Once they arrived there, Rip handed Savage over to the Time Masters merely for them to release him, allowing him to go binding to 2166, their reasoning being that he was part of the natural course of history, and all-important to the timeline. Time Master Druce then captured Rip and the pillow of the team, with the exception of Snart and Sara, and put them in holding cells. In the Time Master ‘s cell, Savage confronted Rip again, gloating over his victory. He then left to go meet Rip ‘s family, leaving the early man screaming in anger. [ 18 ]

Finding out the truth

Druce let Rip out of his cell to show him the Oculus. Druce told Rip that the Time Masters had been controlling the team ‘s actions and that detached will did n’t exist outside of the vanish point. Rip Hunter saw the future and saw Ray die trying to destroy the Oculus. Druce then proceeded to tell Rip that they knew he was going to go rogue and had Vandal Savage kill his kin to make sure he turned his back on the Time Masters. When Rip returned to his cell the other members thought he had been tortured, but he revealed to them that he saw the accuracy. late, once the stay of the team was freed by their teammates left on the Waverider, Rip decided to destroy the Oculus so they could have a gamble to defeat Savage once and for all. [ 19 ]

Defeating savage

Without the Oculus controlling the team ‘s actions, they came up with a design to finally stop ferocious. They realized his finish was to destroy the timeline, bringing him back to Ancient Egypt in 1700 B.C. To stop him they had to travel to three different places throughout history. Splitting up into teams of two, they went to the three places in clock time where the meteors giving Savage his immortality were. Ray and Mick were in 1958 Harmony Falls, Sara and Firestorm were in 1975 Norway, and Rip, Kendra, and Carter were in St. Roch 2021. If they all attacked each barbarous at the accurate time near the meteors he would lose his immortality so they could kill him. After successfully killing Savage in each time period, the third meteor was still set to go off causing the earth to be destroyed. Rip ‘s plan was to fly the meteoroid into the sun destroying it, but besides destroying the Waverider and killing him. He flew it to the sun before passing out and seeing a imagination of his wife and son. After waking up and the meteor destroyed, the Waverider had one last time leap and Rip used it to return to 2021 to get the rest of the team. [ 20 ]

Protecting the timeline

After defeating the Time Masters and Savage, Rip decided to protect the timeline with the avail of any of the team members that wanted to help. Returning to Star City 2016 late that night Rip was please to see the entire team wanted to rejoin, though Kendra and Scythian announced that they were n’t coming as they wanted to start fresh now that Savage is dead. After they bid farewell and flew away Rip and the remaining members of the team prepared to re-embark into history. [ 20 ]

original timeline

erstwhile after taking up the Time Masters blanket, the Legends learned of an aberrance in 1942 caused by Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash. While trying to stop it they met Rex Tyler/Hourman, leader of the JSA in that meter. Around this time Hourman discovered Reverse-Flash ‘s plans and was instructed by Mick to take the Waverider second to 2016, and stop their initial departure. Reverse-Flash learned of this and tried to stop Hourman but the Legends sacrificed themselves to buy Hourman enough time to complete his deputation and ventured through clock time to warn the younger versions of the Legends. Due to the future actions of Reverse-Flash and Hourman, most of these events have been altered into the following. [ 20 ] [ 21 ]

current timeline

Before the Legends could depart another heavily damaged version of the Waverider on the spur of the moment appeared and crashed near them. Soon a man disembarked and after Jax confirmed his whereabouts at his request, he told the Legends not to depart on the Waverider or they ‘d all die. queerly the man told them that Mick was the one who sent him. Rip asked who the man was and he identified himself as Rex Tyler, a member of the Justice Society of America, [ 20 ] and was from 1942. Though the team was disbelieving to trust him Rex stressed that they had no mind the danger awaiting them if they traveled to 1942, but suddenly faded out of being before he could continue. [ 21 ] The Legends spent 6 months fixing numerous aberrations caused by numerous time pirates. At some detail during this time Rip received a message from Barry Allen/The Flash, from 2056. Barry warned Rip that there was going to be a war in Central City, but besides that he altered the timeline and created Flashpoint which changed the pasts and futures of everyone he knew. Barry told Rip that when he leaves to the temporal zone he ‘ll be in the Post-Flashpoint timeline and told him not to trust anyone, particularly those closest to him as they might not be the lapp people he remembers. For this reason, Barry made Rip promise not to tell the early Legends. [ 22 ] Upon learning about a time ripple in 1942, the team traveled there. Rip realized that in order to protect the United States from a Nazi atomic bombard, the Waverider was the only thing that could possibly take the affect and prevent New York City from being destroyed, though he was uncertain if the Waverider would survive, and if it did, if the timeship would still be operational. To find out, Rip scattered the Legends throughout time, but as Mick was besides hurt to survive a time startle, Rip left him aboard the ship and put him in stasis, in case the embark survived. [ 23 ] Thankfully the ship did exist but Gideon informed Rip that repairs would take 15 years to complete. Realizing that coming into reach with the fourth dimension force was the entirely way to escape, Rip took his man of the Spear of Destiny. Before leaving, he recorded a message for the team in font they were found. Rip then made contact with the clock drive and was transported to 1967. however, a side-effect of making liaison with the time drive caused Rip to suffer amnesia, and developed a fresh personality as an american movie scholar named “ Phil Gasmer. ” [ 24 ]

Hollywood film scholar

Phil traveled to Los Angeles to pursue his filmmaking desires. He besides became friends with an aspiring film maker named George Lucas. however, Phil began remembering his original biography as Rip Hunter but believed they were fictions of his judgment, and began making a movie based on his erstwhile life. During the production of a scene, he was confronted by Legion of Doom members Malcolm Merlyn and Damien Darhk, who addressed him as Rip Hunter. Believing they were looking for Rip Hunter ‘s actor, Phil did n’t take them seriously until the Legends showed up, and they started fighting each other. Jax tried to get Phil to condom only for him to panic, and push his erstwhile teammate away. The police then showed up, causing the Legends and Legion members to scatter, leaving Phil to be arrested. While waiting in the police post, he was subsequently found by Sara, Martin, and Mick, who tried to convince him he was Rip. Phil started panicking again, prompting the team to knock him out. even though the team managed to bring Phil back to the ship unharmed, he did not remember being Rip Hunter, a lot to Sara ‘s aggravator. however, Jax discovered that Phil ‘s screenplay had information about the Spear of Destiny, ampere good as characters who resembled the Legends themselves. Phil told them that the inspiration for the Spear was a piece of wood he owned which he believed to be a thoroughly property, and the Legends realized this was an actual piece of the Spear and left to retrieve it. They encountered the Legion, gaining the amphetamine hand before Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash arrived. Phil noticed their distress, and went to help, despite being scared and not having any powers. He dressed in Rip ‘s classical dust storm and used his key signature weapon. however, the grease-gun did not work, causing Phil to lose his assurance and the Legion to realize this was not the real Rip. As he panicked, Eobard abducted him. Phil was brought to the Legion ‘s headquarters, where they would interrogate him for information on the Spear. [ 25 ] [ 24 ]

Turned to the Legion of Doom

Damien and Malcolm tried assorted methods to get information from Hunter, including torture and hypnosis, neither men being able to produce results. Damien tried torture again, pulling one of Rip ‘s tooth out and finding data hidden in it, about a bank score in Switzerland in 2025. Damien wanted to use force to enter the bank vault, but Malcolm persuaded him to use Hunter as an asset. Their first attack failed because Phil was unable to recall Rip ‘s password, but all three men were able to escape without appropriate. Malcolm and Damien clashed because of this failure, finally fighting each other to settle matters as they did in the League of Assassins. The two men would have fought to the end, but Phil intervened and said that this is what their boss, Eobard, wanted and that they were losing by fighting each other rather of working together. initially angry at the words Phil used, Malcolm and Damien agreed that he had a compass point, and worked in concert to break into the depository financial institution vault. Later, Eobard found out about their newfound alliance from Phil and confronted them. alternatively of the men turning against each other, they settled their differences and used what they found in the trust vault to bring Rip Hunter rear. Eobard addressed Rip ‘s “ shortcomings ” before giving the serviceman his memories back. [ 26 ] With his mind altered, Eobard Thawne brought Rip Hunter to 1776 where he was put into the services of General Cornwallis of the british Army and supplied them with automatic rifle rifles. He then snuck into the american english camp and killed George Washington to create an aberrance to lure in the Legends. Thawne tasked Hunter to kill them all and bring back the shard of the Spear of Destiny that they had. When the Legends arrived before Washington ‘s death, Rip led a minor team of his rifle armed redcoats to attack. He set off an EMP device which disabled the Waverider, Ray ‘s suit, Rory ‘s Heat artillery and Firestorm ‘s quantum splicer. He then captured Washington and Rory before shooting Sara. With some of his soldiers, he attacked the Waverider and went in search of the spear. Jackson was even aboard and took out the soldiers and tried to keep Rip second but the erstwhile Time Master cornered him. Jackson tried to reason with Rip but he assured Jackson that he was n’t the Legion ‘s creature and that they finally freed him from being one. Jackson tried to keep him from getting the Spear but Rip threatened him with Sara ‘s life which made him give it up and Rip killed Sara in front of him when he did. Before Rip could leave, Jackson caught up to him and threatened to shoot him for killing Sara. Rip was convinced that Jackson would n’t and even taunted him. It looked like Jackson truly would shoot him before Sara, saved thanks to Gideon and Stein, talked him from doing indeed. Rip then took off with the Spear, leaving Jackson and Sara watching him go, brokenhearted. [ 27 ] Rip then told the Legion about the other three spear fragments being protected by members of the Justice Society of America. He traveled to the class 3000 A.D. where he met Dr. Mid-Nite in Detroit where he worked as a cybernetic research worker. He was amazed to see that the man had his sight restored. Dr. Mid-Nite was surprised to see him as they had agreed to not contact each other again but Rip told him that the Spear was in danger as a group was after it. He asked to have his fragment so that he could join them and hide it in the Vanishing Point. Dr. Mid-Nite was n’t fooled and Rip promptly turned on him and attacked. The former JSA member refused to tell him where the fragment was but Rip correctly guessed that he had hidden it in his own body and preceded to kill him and cut him assailable and retrieve it. He besides took Dr. Mid-Nite ‘s cybernetic mind-warping technology .
After that, he and Damien Darhk went to 507 A.D. to Britannia where Stargirl was. She was immediately Merlin and served King Arthur and Guinevere in Camelot. He and Darhk preceded to kidnap Knights of the Round Table and put them under their control with Mid-Nite ‘s technical school. They even succeeded in capturing the fabled baron himself. They used him to gain access to the castle and were surprised to find that the Legends were there. They held Arthur at ransom and demanded the spear shard at dawn or they would use their army of brainwash knights and soldiers to destroy Camelot. Rip began growing impatient with waiting and wanted to attack but Darhk told him that it was easier to attack on a battlefield then lay siege to a castle. On the battlefield, Rip commanded the united states army to attack Camelot ‘s but the Legends arrived to try and turn the tide. Stein and Rory managed to hack his technical school and then shut it down freeing Arthur and the others from his control. Arthur then charged for Rip and held him at bay. He called for Darhk to help him but the man just sneered at him and told him that he did n’t do rescues before he retreated. Rip was then taken to the Waverider where he was put into a cell and threatened by Jax. He told Rip that he was no longer master and Sara convinced him to spare Rip before but if he hurt anyone from their team again that he would personally end him. After Jax left, he spoke out to Gideon and revealed that the embark ‘s computer A.I. was hush firm to him. [ 6 ]

Re-joining the Legends

After he tried to access Gideon, the team stopped him and then he tried a different tactic. He overrode Gideon with a code that allowed him to cause the transport to self-destruct. The Legends stop him and send Sara and Jax inside his mind. Inside they find Rip, who does n’t know who he is anymore. Sara helps him discover that he has baron within his mind. They then get to the bridge, however, they are stopped by evil versions of Sara, Firestorm, and Rory. Rip then learns with the help of a human Gideon who he is. This helps Sara and Jax defeat their dark counterparts. Everyone discovers that the Waverider inside Rip ‘s mind is falling apart due to Rip no long believing its being. They all leave except Rip who does n’t think the human Gideon is real. Gideon tells him that she is. He then kisses her before leaving. He gets back into his usual overdress, joining up with the Legends in the bridge. He tells Sara that he knows where the final patch of the Spear of Destiny is. He besides tries to apologize for everything he has done to the team. Gideon takes it as an apology for the snog and tells him it was dainty. He then leaves to the bridge. [ 28 ]

Struggle for leadership

After rejoining the Legends, Rip attempted to re-assume instruction over the group only to find that the team had adopted Sara as their new leader, and that they functioned much more smoothly under her leadership. finally, he realized that the team would rather have Sara as their drawing card and begun questioning his topographic point on the team, merely for Sara to console him and remind him that despite everything he was still a Legend. [ 29 ] The Legends outlined a plan to recover the death leftover fragments of the Spear of Destiny from the Legion of Doom. They found themselves in France at the height of the World War I, confronted with the cognition that they must destroy the mystic object. They enlisted the help of a soldier named J.R.R. Tolkien and discovered that the Spear was leading them to the center of the war.

[ 31 ] In rate to undo the Legion of Doom ‘s changes to reality, the Legends broke the one rule of time locomotion and travelled back in time to France during World War II. With the help of their past selves, the team managed to defeat the Legion of Doom. After defeating the Legion, Rip decided to leave the Legends. Before he was able to leave, Sara caught him and the copulate parted ways both giving each other thoroughly luck. [ 32 ]

Director Bennett of the Time Bureau would n’t allow such a hound, forcing Rip to work alone. reluctantly, and to call off the Time Bureau ‘s pursuit of the team, Sara agreed to help. Rip would work aboard his team again, however, upon Damian Darhk ‘s resurrection, Rip called in several Time Bureau agents, all of which were killed by Darhk. Infuriated over Rip ‘s neglect for human life and his compulsion with hunting down Mallus, Sara turned him over to the Time Bureau where he was detained awaiting test.

After Rip returned to the Bureau, he helped them in stopping the anachronisms so Mallus could n’t escape from his time prison. [ 41 ]

I estimate that this plan is extremely dangerous, with a low likelihood of success.”
“Seems like I’ve finally learned how to think like a Legend.

Rip watched as the Legends began their plan, but all would fail when Darhk betrayed the team and Mallus took Nora ‘s body to be reborn. [ 35 ] After the Legends ‘ failed attempt to destroy Mallus, Rip removed the ship ‘s time repel and said his final adieu to Gideon. Gideon mentioned that his idea to blow up the Time Drive to delay Mallus not only had a depleted gamble of working, but was laughably dangerous ; Rip mused on the fact that he had finally learned to think like a Legend. While he was walking to the field to confront Mallus he recalled some of his memories of the Legends. As he waited for Mallus to charge at him, he was holding the time drive which was going critical. Though Sara attempted to dissuade him from the suicide, Rip told her that it was time he joined his family ; he told the team that he made the right choice picking them, and that it had been an honor to know them. just as Mallus was about to kill Rip, the Time Drive exploded which stunned Mallus hanker adequate for the Legends to escape. [ 42 ]

After escaping from Mallus, the team held a aftermath for their fallen brother. even Mick, who was never truly fond of Rip to begin with, was affected by his death. Out of all the Legends, Rip ‘s forfeit affected Sara the most. In their final moments together, she teared up and referred to him as “ Captain ” one last time.

So you’re saying you don’t fit in. You’re an outcast. A misfit.”
“Let’s assume.”
“Sounds to me like you’re a Legend.
—Sara Lance and Rip Hunter[src]

Rip is seen to be a highly feel for world who deeply loves his wife Miranda Coburn, and his son Jonas, thus much so that he broke his oath to the Time Masters to travel through prison term and save them from their demise. He besides wanted to save the future from an apocalyptic world that was believed to be caused by Vandal Savage. however, he later found that it was the Thanagarians that would destroy the earth and Vandal was being helped by the Time Masters to defend Earth and prevent their assail, even if it meant destroying Rip ‘s family in the process. Seeking retaliation, he hunted Savage throughout time in an try to kill him before he could rise to office, but he failed to do so on his own, leading him to gather a group of unknowns to aid him. Rip ‘s decision to take a opportunity on changing the timeline can be seen as noble. While he does want to save his family, he besides does want to see a better future where Vandal is not a threat. however, his love for his syndicate trumped everything else, as he does not regret breaking his loyalty to the Time Masters. When Rip discovers that the Time Masters are in league with Vandal, arsenic well as the fact that they have been manipulating history and are creditworthy for the death of his class ; he becomes disgusted by their actions and wholly turns against the very constitution he once had deference for. While his motivation to save his family and the future are ethical, his tactics to achieve his finish brought him into conflict with not entirely his former employers, who were secretly manipulating and controlling events with the Oculus but his own team. Rip mislead them on the roles they play in history by making it seem they are remembered as some of the greatest heroes, though late admits he chose them specifically because they actually have no actual impact on the timeline. He besides has little solitaire for anything that sidetracks him and the team from their pastime, preferring to focus on the matters at pass. Rip is proven to have a inclination to let his temper get the best of him, to the detail that he ends up arguing with his own team, he can besides be so absorbed in sticking to the mission to stop Vandal that he disregards the feelings of others, for example, he harshly scolded Sara Lance for wanting to aid her home Star City in the year 2046, accusing her of having more refer for one potential future than she did the real one, and even threatened to leave her there if she did not return in an hour, either not understanding or not caring that it would surely take longer for her to save Star City from Grant Wilson. On another occasion when frustrated after being taken prisoner by time pirates he bluffly told Mick Rory he had only been recruited to the team because of his partnership with Leonard Snart, with this revelation partially enforcing Rory ‘s decision to betray the team. It is revealed that even as a child, Rip was unafraid, cunning, and even ruthless, volition to perform criminal acts to survive due to him living on the street and starving more than he ate, he was besides very ruffianly for person of his age, standing up to more brawny foes without any hesitation, this is discernible when his child-self pretended to be normal and innocent, american samoa well as ignorant of the Pilgrim ‘s intentions to kill him, only for him to stab her when she was distracted and gloating at the team. Rip ‘s cognition of what his younger-self would do if person tried to harm him is what led to him including the child in his plan to defeat the Pilgrim and ultimately led to her death. As an pornographic, he is a pitiless combatant and expressed bang-up fad at Vandal Savage, when he got to temporarily kill him the first time and when he chose to shove him into electrical breakers to kill him for the final meter, alternatively of just shooting him. As Rip attempted to take the Nth metallic element meteorite into the Sun to keep it from destroying ground, he underwent a near-death experience where he had a vision of his wife and son, this vision allowed him to ultimately come to terms with their deaths and let go of his obsession with saving them from savage in the future, in this know, he was proven to be highly emotional, hugging his son tightly and holding onto his wife with the lapp emotions. nowadays having gained closure, Rip has become a far more stable individual, no longer allowing his heat or hatred for Vandal to overcome him, having made it entire circle as an individual and as a leader. however, that is not to say all of his grief regarding his class ‘s mangle had vanished – when about to risk his own biography to stall Mallus, Rip states that his motivation aside from saving the Legends is besides to see Miranda and Jonas once again. Rip, under a new identity as Phil Gasmer, had retained some of his prior traits. Although Phil seems more anxious and fearful than his former self, he showed that he was still brave when it counted. He tried to help the Legends when they were engaged in a competitiveness against the Legion and made an try at escaping while a prisoner of said group. Phil was besides shown to be creative, having been implied to have spent some time in film school before the appearance of the Legends, and coming up with an concern solution to pose as Rip Hunter to help them in battle. While Rip was under mind change thanks to Eobard ‘s tamper of his memories, it had rendered him a pitiless, immoral, barbarous and cold interpretation of himself, his commitment had shifted, as he was obeying the commands of the Legion and shared in their decision to find the Spear of Destiny at any monetary value, these traits were demonstrated several times as Rip is volition to kill his former teammates to achieve a patch of a spear, he was not hesitant to shoot Sara in the stomach and late crush her throat while choking her when she was helpless and wounded. This was after having bombed the embark with an electromagnetic pulsate and consequently disabled its aesculapian equipment. Despite his cold attitude, Rip was slenderly sarcastic and humorous, such as when he claimed to have found time-traveling fun after killing General Washington to lure his teammates into the past to try and kill them, when hunting for and shooting at Jax, he briefly tried to convince him that they could use the spear to save the latter ‘s church father, James Jackson, merely to attack once again when Jax refused, proving that he was will to manipulate in holy order to achieve his goals. He was besides proven to be arrogant, believing his old-self to be a jester for believing that time was deserving protecting. rather, Rip believed that there was no indicate in protecting history, as he viewed it only as “ war and slavery and holding a dead son in your arms ”, which implies that Rip ‘s new personality was influenced by the loss of his family. [ 27 ] His cruelty was adequate for him to have no queasiness with killing Charles when cutting a nibble of the spear out of his body after not being able to trick him into giving it willingly. [ 6 ] After regaining himself, Rip felt thick shame and guilt for his actions against his team and although he was uncomfortable with Sara taking over a captain, he accepted it without much complaints due to feeling he does n’t deserve the placement. Since spend 5 years of building the Time Bureau to protect the timeline, Rip developed an authoritative attitude, placing an stress on rules, regulations and restoring the natural order of time in big contrast to the Rip who defied the Time Masters for his own personal deputation, due to this his opinions on the Legends have slenderly soured after their actions resulted in all of prison term being broken, though this was not angstrom extreme as Ava Sharpe ‘s initial impression as he still finds their recreant approach to fixing problems admirable and even functional at time but considers the Time Bureau ‘s methods superior. Despite this, a degree of Rip ‘s erstwhile personality remains such as his rule-breaking attitude and lying such as using the Legends for a lead of Mallus without explaining his true motivation to his former team or the Time Bureau, resulting in several agents death. Despite his difficulties with the Legends, Rip ‘s message to them after being displaced in history and final sacrifice to fend off Mallus to give his early teammates clock time to escape proves how much he cared for them, like the kin he had lost. His final examination thoughts besides prove that from the Time Masters to the Time Bureau, the Legends where the only place where he had a home and ultimately rightfully belonged .
