The Legion Of Superheroes Make Their Debut In Supergirl Preview

by Erik Amaya


The Supergirl winter hiatus is upon us. But when the show returns next month, the Legion of Superheroes will finally make their debut. Or, as this preview of the next episode indicates, at least three Legionnaires will put on their flight rings.

Oh, but who is that slightly pale Legionnaire to the left of what is most likely Mon-El’s (Chris Wood) hand? Could it be Brainiac 5 (Jesse Rath)? Or is it someone disposable like Polar Boy or Arm-Fall-Off Boy to amplify the threat of Reign (Odette Annable). Granted, she’s pretty much proven herself a world-class threat already. She pummeled Kara (Melissa Benoist) so hard that she will spend the entire hiatus in a coma. Hopefully she’ll wake up before Antenna Boy or Infectious Lass find themselves looking at their own intestines while Reign continues her rampage.

Supergirl returns January 15th on The CW.
