‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Already Killed Off a Main Character

Hope you’re not a Hawkman fan because on Part 2 of the Legends of Tomorrow pilot, he was killed off. In the episode, the gang of superbeings hunted for a magical dagger, which apparently is the only thing that can kill the immortal bad guy known as Vandal Savage.

The group manages to track down the dagger, and in a battle Hawkman uses it to kill Savage. Unfortunately for Hawkman, the dagger only works when it’s being wielded by Hawkgirl. To make matters worse, he only found this out after Savage stabbed it into his heart and killed him.

So it appears that Hawk people are back on the Audubon Society’s endangered species list, because only Hawkgirl is left.

On the bright side, Hawkman’s death galvanized the rest of the team, and it looks like the Legends of Tomorrow is here to stay.

Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursdays at 8pm on CW.

See how the cast prepared for their roles.

Dagestan Hunting Dagger

  • Dated: 19th century
  • Measurements: overall length 27.5 cm

Wrought entirely of silver, the finely engraved dagger is nielloed overall. The grip is formed as a saber hilt with the characteristic pommel a fully-modeled leopard’s head with bared teeth. The dagger has a single-edged blade. It is presented in its silver scabbard decorated en suite with the hilt, the finial in the form of a stork’s head.

Sidenotes:

  1. Dagestan is a southern Russian province with a long and decorated history of warfare and weapon craft.
  2. It has a prestigious weapon manufacturing history that dates back to the 14th century.
  3. Some areas were dedicated to the production of swords and daggers (sashka and kinjhal) while others focused on firearms and the decoration of both previous types, but all would bear characteristics unique to Dagestan.
