Cisco is at his best when he's goofy and fun, but The Flash frequently makes him a sad sack, or otherwise places him in one downer situation after another. After being dumped and losing his powers, it's time he gets some fun back in his life, and the Legends can certainly provide that. Fighting magical monsters is just the kind of zaniness Cisco would be good for. Plus, strutting around different time periods and looking good in any and all clothing is something anyone -- but especially Cisco -- can get behind.
With Nate off with the Time Bureau, Cisco hits that sweet spot of being the well-rounded member the Legends need. He can do some tech support at the Time Bureau, superheroic action, and perhaps even help Constantine send the "mytheries" back to Hell with his Vibes. (Can he even do that? This is a good way to find out!) Although this isn't entirely the point, he can also carry a tune, not unlike the late, great Victor Stein. He could even finally break dance in the Wild West or in the 1990s.
Legends benefits from a rotating cast more than most shows and, although it has wisely brought in some "original" characters, there is something to be said for having a superhero veteran on hand. Sara, Mick and Ray are the only team members that have stuck around since the first episode -- yes, really -- and there will eventually come a time when they retire as well. Sooner rather than later is a good time to add Cisco to the roster, because he could certainly use some good Vibes right now -- and who best to help him with that than some Legends?
