The Fun Way Legends Of Tomorrow Is Paying Homage To The Original Legion Of Doom

Warning: spoilers ahead for Legends of Tomorrow. Don't read any further if you are not caught up on the zany time travel series!

Things are not looking good for the Legends. As you'll likely recall, the last episode of Legends of Tomorrow saw them betrayed by Mick Rory, who subsequently handed the Spear of Destiny over the Legion of Doom. As if that wasn't bad enough, now it seems that the Legion is even going to get a brand new base of operations in the upcoming episode -- and it bears a striking resemblance to the Hall of Doom from DC Comics. Check out executive producer Marc Guggenheim's tweet below to get a glimpse of the building for yourself.

So based on that picture, things aren't going so well for our heroes on the upcoming episode of Legends of Tomorrow -- which is ominously titled "Doomsworld." Now that the Legion of Doom has the Spear of Destiny, Leonard Snart, Damien Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, and Eobard Thawne are all going to take turns creating all sorts of chaos and mayhem with it. Among their various escapades, it's clear that they will use the spear to construct a giant "Hall of Doom" from which they can conduct villainous business. Everybody needs a place to hang his or her hat, right?

Check out a shot of the Hall of Doom from DC Comics below to get a comparison of the architecture. It won't take long for you to notice the similarities.

It's unclear exactly what city this live-action version of the Hall of Doom is specifically located in. The building looks like a modified version of Central City's S.T.A.R. Labs, so that's one very possible candidate. Then again, the Hall of Doom is traditionally located in the Louisiana swampland, so Legends of Tomorrow may have updated that origin to place the Hall firmly within the New Orleans city limits. After all, there's no need to hide in a swamp when you think that you've won.

Of course, we already know that the Legion of Doom hasn't just used the Spear of Destiny to create an evil building. "Doomsworld" will catch us up with our heroes in a newly rewritten reality that has been custom designed as a personal hell for each and every Legend. This will include making Ray Palmer a janitor at S.T.A.R. Labs, as well as making Jax an arrogant Harrison Wells-esque figure who bosses around Martin Stein. The Legends thought they had this one in the bag, but they're about to hit a serious low point.

We will just have to wait and see what the inside of the Hall of Doom looks like when the "Doomsworld" episode of Legends of Tomorrow airs on Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on The CW.
