Based on the based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz and featuring a powerful, all-star cast — including Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart and Rachel Keller — “Legion” follows the story of David Haller (Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human.

Institutionalized once again, David spends his time with his chatterbox friend Lenny (Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change.

Supergirl Round Table: Will Sam Survive?

We're back!

The Legion of Superheroes woke up a new member on Supergirl Season 3 Episode 10, and Brainiac-5 did not disappoint. He helped Kara wake up from her coma and get back to her old self.

Below, TV Fanatics Christine Orlando, Jay Ruymann, Kathleen Wiedel, and Andy Behbakht discuss Brainy and the Legion, Sam's future, and Coville's switching sides.

Join us!

What are your thoughts on Brainiac-5 and the Legion of Superheroes as a whole?

Christine: Brainiac-5 was fun. He struck the right balance between incredibly smart and helpful, and his mind meld powers were intriguing.

I would have expected him to be more arrogant, but he wasn’t that way at all. I’m hoping he sticks around for a while. As for the rest of the Legion of Superheroes, they really didn’t make much of an impression, at least not yet.

Jay: I was kind of underwhelmed. The

Supergirl Season 3 Episode 10 Review: Legion of Superheroes

Kara's alive!

What, you mean you're not completely shocked to learn that she survived on Supergirl Season 3 Episode 10 after spending a few days in a coma? 

While we may not have needed Mon-El's knowledge from the future to know that she would eventually wake up, it was still enjoyable watching the process. 

We have a new character, and he's one who definitely needs to stick around for awhile. Move over Mon-El; Kara may have a new potential love interest. 

It's way too soon to go there. Kara's still mending a broken heart, and Mon-El's presence is not helping to speed up the process, but she and Braniac-5 did seem to have an instant connection. 

At the very least, a solid friendship can be built on this foundation. 

Braniac-5 is funny, charming, smart (obviously), and a very skilled multitasker. He's the total package. 

Braniac-5: Actually, let's keep talking. It'll help

Supergirl season 3 episode 10 review: Legion Of Superheroes

Delia Harrington Jan 16, 2018

The Legion of Superheroes is an action-packed hour of Supergirl that leaves us wanting more. Spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

3.10 Legion Of Superheroes

At the end of the midseason finale, Supergirl was defeated by Reign in a spectacular and violent fashion. Reign did serious damage, both to Supergirl herself, who spends most of this episode in a coma, and to the city, which seems panicked and demoralised after Supergirl’s defeat and absence.

If you were hoping to meet the whole Legion tonight, you were disappointed—the rest of the crew is still in stasis in their ship. Since we had already met Mon-El and his wife, Imra Adeen, that means we really only met one new character, making this episode title a bit of an oversell. It’s still great

Supergirl Recap: Rude Awakening

Supergirl Recap: Rude Awakening
Monday’s Supergirl introduced us to our second favorite blue-skinned television character named Brainy. (Sorry, but Smurfs always come first at TVLine.)

“Brainy,” as it turns out, is Mon-El and Imra’s nickname for Brainiac 5, the third member of the Legion of Super-Heroes tasked with entering Kara’s subconscious and waking the Girl of Steel from her Reign-induced coma. As a defense mechanism, Kara’s brain concealed her in her safe place, a recreation of the enormous loft she somehow manages to afford on a junior reporter’s salary.

Kara tried all the usual tricks — super strength to pull the door off its hinges,

The Legion Of Super-Heroes Confront Reign In New Supergirl Clip

Even with an extended hiatus looming, it sure does look like Supergirl will squeeze in a fair amount of memorable moments within the four episodes set to air over the next few weeks. For starters, the Legion of Super-Heroes will be making their presence known in the midseason premiere itself.

So far, the network has been slowly pulling back the curtain on each individual member of one of DC’s oldest and most beloved super teams. Not long ago, we got our first look at Brainiac 5 and, more recently, we saw both Mon-El and Saturn Girl suit up.

But with the next episode now being merely hours away, the cat has been partially let out of the bag. To be more specific, our latest treat comes in the form of an actual clip excised from the highly anticipated midseason premiere.

Supergirl’s Key to Defeating Reign Doesn’t Involve Superpowers

Kara Danvers will be a little worse for wear when The CW’s Supergirl returns this week, but a trouncing has never kept the Girl of Steel down for very long. This time might be different, though. Supergirl was put into a coma by the Kryptonian world-killer Reign. In the show’s midseason finale, Kara went up against the superpowered Reign only to get framed on national television, pummeled with a chunk of rebar and plunged into unconsciousness. It would seem that Reign is a problem that can’t be solved with brute force or superpowers.

Kara’s injuries might not be what truly ails her, after all. This season has also seen the return of Mon-El, Kara’s former lover, whose departure from Earth only lasted long enough for him to be thrown into the 31st century, found the Legion of Super-Heroes and get married to Imra Ardeen — Saturn Girl.

Supergirl: 15 Lost Facts About The Legion Of Super-Heroes

The first season of Supergirl teased the the Legion of Super-Heroes when it showed us a golden Legion ring in Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. The second season then introduced a new character to the show’s cast, Mon-El, a Daxamite alien who has quite a long history with the time-traveling team of heroes in the comics. Now, season 3 of Supergirl is just about to resume, with a story that will fully introduce the Legion to the series’ mythology. We’ve already caught glimpses of Brainiac 5, Saturn Girl and Mon-El in full Legion costume, with many more to come.

In the comic books, the Legion of Super-Heroes first appeared in 1958, in Adventure Comics #247. Created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino, the team of teenagers was only slated for that one appearance. However, the characters proved popular enough that they would eventually get their own title, effectively helping them become

New Synopses Tease What Lies Ahead For Supergirl And Arrow

Even though we have a few days to go until some of our favorite DC TV shows return for the back half of the current season, we’re able to peer ever so slightly into the future now that more synopses are creeping online. Don’t forget, episode descriptions tend to make their rounds three weeks ahead of time, but thankfully don’t really spoil whatever episodes come before.

First, let’s talk about Supergirl.

On January 29, it looks as though the series may stray away from the Legion of Super-Heroes – at least for that week – and instead focus on a few other unfolding situations. For starters, we can expect the battle between Morgan Edge and Lena Luthor to continue. Even having been explored sporadically thus far this season, our guess is that this thread will somehow be woven into the greater tapestry before long.

Speaking of which, it appears
