Who is Rip Hunter?


Rip Hunter is the preeminent time traveler in DC Comics. He invented the time sphere and was an integral part of the Crisis on Infinite Earths. He will be a huge part of the new DC CW series, Legends of Tomorrow. Here is a video explaining Rip to the uninformed along with the trailer for the new show. Since Rip hasn’t really shown up in any other live action adaptations, Arthur Darvill will pretty much have a fresh crack at the character. He currently looks a lot like a Dr. Who mixed with Mal Reynolds, which is always a fun kind of guy. So far we aren’t seeing much power armor for Rip, but that could all change considering the promo trailer was written and shot before many of the actual show details were established.
