I don't watch Legends of Tomorrow, but I saw an old trailer of an episode where Rip Hunter was saying

I've seen darker days, I've seen men of steel die and dark knights fall

Was he referring to Superman and Batman here ?

Does it mean that he's been in a timeline where they both existed and died ?

    Well, Superman does exist in a side universe.

Since Legends of tomorrow is part of DC universe and he is a time traveler AND since legends already met Kara Zor-el, its safe to assume that meeting Kara's brother, superman and his frenemy Batman at some point in time is a possibility. Anything is possible when multiverse exists. Even though Rip was not present during the invasion episode, he has a whole timeline as a time master which we don't know about where this could have happened.


Given that Superman does not exist on Earth-1, I think the writers were just putting in a fun Easter egg.
