What are you waiting for? GO!
Sorry for stranding you all through-out history, but it was the only way to save you. You know what they say, a captain never abandons his ship, and neither shall I abandon hope of seeing you all again, someday- somewhere in time. As flawed and unruly you all are individually, together you are the best crew, the best team a captain could ever hope for. So, stick together. And remember, History is yours now my dear legends. Good luck.
~ Rip Hunter's final message to The Legends

Captain Rip Hunter (also known as Gareeb) is the main hero of the 2016 action series DC's Legends of Tomorrow. He is based on the comic book character of the same name. He is portrayed by English actor Arthur Darvill who also played Rory Williams in Doctor Who.

History

Rip is a time traveler who used to be a member of a group called the Time Masters until he hijacked a ship called the Waverider which carried an artificial intelligence, Gideon. Travelling to different places in 2016, Rip recruits eight people (Professor Martin Stein and Jefferson Jackson (who merge together to make Firestorm), Ray Palmer/Atom, Sara Lance/White Canary, Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl, Carter Hall/Hawkman, Mick Rory/Heat Wave and Leonard Snart/Captain Cold) to aid him throughout time and space to stop an immortal tyrant named Vandal Savage (who in 2166 during the Second Blitz in London, killed Rip's wife Miranda and son Jonas).
