The Time Masters were an organization charged with protecting history from rogue time travelers, but they were destroyed. Under the leadership of Rip Hunter, we have taken up their mantle. Sara Lance, former member of the League of Assassins; Dr. Raymond Palmer, the Atom; the arsonist Mick Rory; and Firestorm, the merged super form of Jefferson Jackson and myself, Martin Stein. We are the only ones left to protect history. We are the Legends of Tomorrow.Martin Stein in Legends of Tomorrow, Season 2 Episode 1

Rip: "Actually, I'm in charge, in case any of you have forgotten."
Snart: "No, I remember. I just don't care."
