Legends of Tomorrow

The CW’s DC universe continues to expand! It all started with (Green) ArrowAs Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) became an accurate vigilante and fought to protect his city, other heroes and villains were introduced along the way. Eventually, Barry Allen, a.k.a. the Flash (Grant Gustin) appeared and he went on to become the Scarlet Speedster! Gustin’s Flash then *ahem* raced into his very own show on The CW.

Seeing as today is the actor’s birthday, we wanted to remind fans that he’s doing an excellent job as the iconic DC hero. So, here are 3 simple reasons why we’re absolutely loving Grant Gustin as the Flash!

Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

DC Comics and IDW Publishing have teamed up to create a crossover that is 110% fan service: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

But what else does this issue have to offer?
