TV: “Legends of Tomorrow” Features First Ace Superhero

Legends of Tomorrow ace superhero

DC Comics’ bustling television universe, known by fans as the Arrowverse, introduced its first asexual superhero on the latest episode of The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow.”

In the episode, Spooner, a member of the time-traveling superhero squad, came out as asexual after having a rare quiet moment with fellow hero Zari. Spooner, portrayed by Lisseth Chavez, reveals that she isn’t attracted to men or women, hinting that her lack of sexual attraction could be the product of “mushroom aliens.” But Zari reassured her that asexuality is a real thing and is completely normal, addressing common misconceptions about asexuality head-on.

Chavez celebrated the moment on Instagram. “Spooner has officially come out as asexual! ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ did that,” she wrote. “Thank you for shining light on asexuals. They’re underrepresented and always misunderstood. Thank you [‘Legends of Tomorrow’] for trusting me/Spooner to held spread awareness and shine light.”
