Hourman made his debut in season finale, traveling to 2016 to warn the Legends that if they got boarded their Waverider, they would all die. Sadly, in the second episode of this season, Hourman was killed by Reverse-Flash/Eobard Thawne while putting the Askaran Amulet, a mystical relic Adolf Hitler wanted to get his Nazi hands, in a display case in the Justice Society of America headquarters.
Rex Tyler is a Golden Age superhero better known as Hourman. Tyler has a number of superhuman abilities: enhanced strength, reflexes, and healing -- but only for an hour at a time. His abilities are given to him by Miraclo, a drug he designed himself. There is an Hourman legacy including Rex's son Rick and an android from the 853rd Century programmed to act as a member of the Tyler family. The android, at a point in the past, presented Rex with an hourglass infused with tachyons -- time in its most basic form -- and that hourglass would become part of both his and Rick's costumes. Said hourglass has been seen on board the Waverider on previous episodes of DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
When the Legends discover a time Aberration in 1863, they find themselves fighting for survival during the Civil War with Confederate soldiers who have been turned into zombies. With the Civil War outcome hanging in the balance, Jax (Franz Drameh) must participate in a daring mission by going to a slave plantation with Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers). Meanwhile, Sara (Caity Lotz) begins to feel the burden of the decisions she has to make as the leader, and Ray (Brandon Routh) struggles to find his purpose on the team.
The episode was directed by Michael Allowitz and written by Marc Guggenheim and Ray Utarnachitt.
