21. Nate Heywood – Steel

When Nate was first introduced, it was as a powerless historian who had discovered the whereabouts of the Waverider. Though he might not have had any powers, he was still crafty enough to barge his way past Oliver Queens’ mayoral security team and force his way into the office. After finding the Legends at the bottom of the sea just off the coast of New York, Nate’s historical knowledge came to good use and he joined the team.

On his first trip back in time, Nate was wounded and, because he was a hemophiliac, was at risk of bleeding out. That was until Ray Palmer’s experimental serum was used on him and blessed him with the ability to turn his skin into steel. He spent a bit of time getting used to having these powers, but soon became a valuable member of the team.

In his time with the Legends, Steel fought alternate Earth Nazis, actual Nazis, aliens, and the whole gamut of supervillain thugs. Over time, he became a much better fighter and was able to hold his own against pretty much anybody — he went a long way from the historian we initially met.
