In the mid-season finale, Supergirl was badly beaten by Reign, a new villain that is secretly her friend, Samantha. Reign's purpose is to be a sleeper agent of the Kryptonian Worldkillers. The beatdown was very public, and witnessed by her friends at the DEO, including her ex-boyfriend, Mon-El who has been living in the future as a member of the Legion Super-Heroes, with his wife, Saturn Girl. Four more Legionnaires remain in stasis pods on their trapped ship. In this episode, Mon-El awakens another Legionnaire to help Supergirl while Reign continues to wage destruction on National City. Oh, spoilers abound.
In the current season of Supergirl, the Legion of Super-Heroes is slowly revealing itself to be a big part of the story with Supergirl fighting the Kryptonian threat of Reign. Mon-El, introduced last season as an eventual love interest for Supergirl, vanished at the end of last season due to lead poisoning from Earth's atmosphere. Now, announcements have been made for casting two members of the Legion, Saturn Girl, already appearing in two episodes, and Brainiac 5, traditionally a love interest for Supergirl from almost his first appearance. Spoilers abound after here, so don't say you were weren't warned.

TALES OF THE LEGION #315 September 1984 We're up to the next issue of the newsstand series Tales of the Legion. This is the second part of "The Trial Of Ontiir," the resolution of a story that appeared nearly a year before this. SYNOPSIS: Sun Boy, Supergirl and Brainiac 5 bust in on the Dark Circle's trial of Ontiir. They make handy work of the defenses, but when Supergirl tries to use her x-ray vision to see what the Dark Circle members actually look like, all of them teleport away, leaving empty robes. The second Invisible Kid is consulting with the Legion's physician about Lyle Norg's condition, but Dr. Gym'll refuses to help. Invisible Kid then goes to his predecessor and suggests that they go back to the dream-like realm that he first encountered Lyle Norg. The first Invisible Kid finds that funny.
TALES OF THE LEGION #314 August 1984 I was having trouble deciding which way to go with the reviews of old Legion comics, so thanks to a few people on the Legion of Substitute Podcasters Facebook page, I decided to go with the next issue of the newsstand series, which with this issue became Tales of the Legion. There will be links in this review to previous reviews since there's a lot of references to past Legion stories I've covered. SYNOPSIS: Ontiir is on trial for betraying the United Planets by helping the Emerald Empress and the Dark Circle take over Weber's World. He claims he was ordered to infiltrate the Dark Circle by the Science Police and his treason was part of that cover. Three Legionnaires that were there are present for the trial: Brainiac 5, Sun Boy and Supergirl. When Science Police Chief Zendak refutes the claim of Ontiir's orders, he signals for a Dark Circle escape ship, which helps him escape by keeping the Legionnaires busy keeping observers safe.
CAUTION: As much as I try to, there may be spoilers in this article. DISCLAIMER: Yes, I illegally downloaded the Supergirl Pilot. People were talking about it, so I felt like I had to, but I'm still going to watch it when it airs, and if the quality holds up, I'll probably buy the DVD sets. Rumors are also going around that DC may have leaked it, but they are just speculation.

I don't know if it's the upcoming Supergirl TV series or not, but I got to thinking about Supergirl, and not the current one, or any of the variety of ways DC writers have tried to resurrect her over the decades, but the original, Pre-Crisis Supergirl. Since it's also been a while since we've done a Needless Character Analysis, it seems like a good time to do another one.
