New Episode Synopsis For Legends Of Tomorrow Reveals New Heroes

Legends Of Tomorrow continues apace, with a new synopsis being released for episode three of the second season – titled Shogun. In addition to taking the group to Feudal Japan, the episode will see the reveal of a new hero, in the form of the much anticipated Citizen Steel.

For more on what to expect, check out the synopsis in full below:

“SECRETS AND NEW FOUND POWERS — Nate (Nick Zano) is shocked to learn that he has powers but then accidentally lands himself and Ray (Brandon Routh) in Feudal Japan. After Sara (Caity Lotz) convinces their stowaway Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), AKA Vixen, that Rory (Dominic Purcell) is not a murderer, they all agree to find Nate and help him master his powers in order to defend the Japanese village from the Shogun and his army of samurai warriors. Meanwhile, Jax (Franz Drameh) and Stein (Victor Garber) stay back to help fix the ship and find a secret compartment but decide not to tell the rest of the team what they learn. Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Grainne Godfree.”

The transformation of Dr. Nate Heywood into Citizen Steel has been long-awaited, since he was revealed to be the grandson of Commander Steel. In the comic books, Dr. Heywood gains the power of existing as essentially a being of living steel after accidentally absorbing the blood of the villain Reichsmark. Here, however, his reveal looks to be entwined with another appearance by the much-loved hero, Vixen.
