Critic reviews for Legion of Superheroes
Monday's Supergirl introduced us to our second favorite blue-skinned television character named Brainy. (Sorry, but Smurfs always come first at TVLine.)
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.
Like most Supergirl episodes these days, "Legion of Superheroes" is filled with both good and bad elements amid some interesting storytelling techniques.
The majority of the episode, luckily, takes place outside of Kara's brain, where the DEO team have to figure out how to handle the Reign situation.
One of the things that I love about the return of Mon-El, the arrival of Imra/Saturn Girl, and the introduction of Brainiac-5 is that having the Legion of Superheroes on the show reconnects Kara to the wider universe.
