During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 it has been revealed that Season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow will introduce The Justice Society of America.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim announced (via CBR) that Stargirl, Obsidian, Dr. Mid-Nite, Commander Steel and Vixen are set for Season 2.
“Even heroes have heroes and for us, the JSA is that Golden Age generation of superheroes. Right out of the gate, we’re blending these worlds.”
In addition, it was also revealed that the threat of the second season will be none other than the Legion of Doom. Over on DC’s official blog it reads:
Forming the Legion of Doom will be Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), the Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher) and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller). That last member carries a real charge considering he fought alongside the heroes of the show last season and shares a particularly close relationship with Heat Wave and White Canary. Combined with the strength of the other three members—each of whom have single-handedly created plenty of trouble for the Flash and Green Arrow—and this Legion is looking pretty formidable.
“For season two of Legends, we decided that the perfect antagonist for TV’s first-ever team of Super Heroes would be TV’s first-ever team of Super-Villains, recruited from the ranks of Arrow and The Flash’s deadliest adversaries,”
