"Well, I gotta admit, watching your team work like a well-oiled machine kinda makes me feel like I'm doing this whole hero thing all wrong."

"The Justice Society of America" is the second episode of the second season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and the eighteenth episode overall. It aired on October 20, 2016.


The Legends travel to Nazi-occupied Paris, but find themselves surrounded by the Justice Society of America (AKA JSA.) The Legends discover a time aberration that threatens the JSA, but the JSA wants nothing to do with them or their help. Nevertheless, the Legends force their way into the JSA's mission to intercept and seize a mysterious package. Nate is desperate to prove that he should be part of the team, but he has a secret that he shares with his grandfather Commander Steel that might make it difficult. Ray is so focused on impressing the JSA, he puts himself and Vixen in danger. Meanwhile, Stein has stepped in as the leader with Rip gone, but when decisions aren't being made Sara seems to be the one calling the shots.[src]


  • During the singing scene, Martin (as Max Lorenz) announced he was going to sing "The Sound of Music" from the musical of the same name. However he sung "Edelweiss" instead, which was featured in the musical.
  • Also during the singing scene, Martin addresses the orchestra, saying "Watch me for the changes and try to keep up". This is a verbatim quote (in quite the same situation) from a scene in the 1985 film Back to the Future.
  • When Reverse-Flash steals the amulet from its case, a pair of Wonder Woman's Bracelets of Submission is sitting next to it.
  • The motorbike that Nate and Henry were driving has the same license plate (WH13371) as the one Steve McQueen rode in the iconic scene of The Great Escape.
  • Nate tells his grandfather the latter died before he was born. In the comics, Commander Steel died in an issue of the Eclipso comic book series, a decade or so before Nate made his first appearance.


  • When the Legends are trying to infiltrate Folies-Bergére, they overhear Herr Krieger talk to another person. In the ensuing dialogue, he says "o'ten hundred tomorrow". The mistake is quite clear when you write it out in numbers (0 10:00); two-digit numbers aren't prefixed by a 0, even in military/24 hour time format.
