I've really only found Brainy interesting when Supergirl was somehow involved.


Do you mean those old Levitz issues when Brainiac 5 is in mourning after Supergirl's death in COIE?

I mean going back to when Brainy was introduced in a Supergirl story.

Actually, the stories involving Brainy and Stargrave were good to, though. There's another Legion villain with potential that Levitz either ignored or misused.

A) I haven't read Threshold, which puts me in the company of the majority of comic readers.
B) The "Stargrave" I was talking about was the original, which was supposed to be the original Brainiac. I thought the idea was awesome back in the day, though my thoughts about using modern DC characters in the Legion's time have changed a lot since then.

Starfinger was ruined for me by the animated series. I cannot take that villain seriously ever again.

Seriously, don't. There's enough crap that should have stayed at Old Rama around here already.

It was okay. But sometimes... you were left wanting to kill the show runners.
