Legends of Tomorrow: Sara Lance to Finally Get a Superpower in Season 5
With SDCC on the horizon, news about our favorite superhero shows is finally starting to come out, and actress Caity Lotz dropped a major piece of info. Sara Lance is getting a superpower.
Sara has been through quite a lot since she was introduced on Arrow. She’s died and come back several times, been possessed, and lost pretty much her entire family. Regardless, Sara has grown so much and is now the captain of the Waverider. Sara is “the one who’s good at martial arts,” but things are about to change.
Lotz revealed during an interview with EW that Sara will contract a magical illness during Season 5. This will result in her gaining a superpower.
“It’s something where it’s kind of an illness and she’s going to learn how to turn it into something positive, which I think is really cool — taking a setback, something that’s difficult and challenging, and being able to kind of create alchemy with that and turn it into a positive.”
No word on what the superpower is, but Lotz adds that the negative aspect of the power might affect her personal life a bit more. This will come into play now that Ava is jobless and living aboard the Waverider. So not only will Sara be dealing with having her girlfriend around all the time, she’s also got some new abilities.
Legends of Tomorrow returns for its fifth season in 2020.
