    Well maybe that's because up until two months ago, I was a barista, not some damn winged demigoddess.

    Hunted by Savage[edit | hide]

    Saunders and the Legends

    In 2015, Hall was recruited by Rip Hunter alongside Ray Palmer, Mick Rory, Martin Stein, Jefferson Jackson, Carter Hall, Sara Lance and Leonard Snart, into the Legends of Tomorrow, hoping to defeat Vandal Savage.[4]

    Retirement from Vigilantism[edit | hide]

    During the course of their war against Vandal Savage, Saunders was engaged to Ray Palmer after Carter Hall was killed in action. However, the engagement was short-lived as Hall's reincarnation, Scythian Torvil, joined the Legends. With Savage successfully defeated and unable to restore his body, Saunders and Torvil were saved from the curse of being repeatedly killed by Savage, allowing them to leave the life of being a vigilante and settle down.[4]

    We've come a long way since we first started traveling on the Waverider together. I can't believe I just used to be a bari-- well, you know.
