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.

I didn't see that episode. But the animated series was good, eh?

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