The Legends discover an aberration where New York City was nuked in 1942.

In 1942, a time quake originated in New York City caused by Damien Darhk who aided the Nazis in detonating an atomic bomb to cripple the Allied forces. (See below for the effects.) The Legends traveled to New York and went after Darhk. After the Nazis loaded the bomb into a U-boat, Rip Hunter took the Waverider underwater and collided it with the atomic bomb, saving New York, but scattering the Legends throughout history. After the Legends reassembled, they returned to New York and were later confronted by the Justice Society of America.[1]

In 1965, Rip Hunter dropped off Henry Heywood in the Manhattan area of the city and charged him with protecting a piece of the Spear of Destiny. The Legends arrived shortly thereafter but were unable to retrieve Henry since he used his disappearance skills to vanish into the city crowd.[2]

In 2012, during a concert of the band Lillian Axe, a rogue fire in the nightclub went off due to unsanctioned use of pyrotechnics resulted in 47 deceased. The souls of these people were trapped in Chas Chandler, due to a spell cast by John Constantine, who tried to protect Chas from drunk driving.

In 2014, as Chas Chandler was visiting his family, his daughter, Geraldine Chandler, who lived in Brooklyn with her mother Renee Chandler, got her soul stolen by Felix Faust during the event christened by media as Brooklyn Coma Epidemic. Faust's plans were thwarted by the intrusion of John Constantine's team.[3]

In 2016, Dr. Nate Heywood used UFO sightings by multiple witnesses in New York to deduce that the Legends were in trouble and to go to Oliver Queen for help.[1]

  • In "Out of Time", Sara mentioned having a grandfather in the F.B.I. in New York City in 1942 but it is unknown if this is true or if she just made it up as an excuse to go after Damien Darhk without raising suspicion.
