Michael R., this will likely sound somewhat pedantic, but... it's Superman. THE big gun. If he exists, he has to be accounted for. One line is all I need... but I don't think it's legit to overlook him. Especially in this situation.

Well, I'm about 28 minutes from this week's Supergirl, with my flight ring on and all. I hope it's a step up from last week's episode.

This week's episode was.... problematic.

It looks as if Reign is almost becoming similar to Eclipso... hero and villain in one.

MORE MAGGIE SUBPLOT?!?! Can we PLEASE lose any more mention of her?

I kinda liked the super heroine team up... but couldn't the Legion spare a damned flight ring for a powerless Supergirl?

So Fort Rozz is named after a female criminal... who's imprisoned there. So... they built it just for her? Kinda awkward.

Ah, there's Brainiac 5 behaving like a jerk. They couldn't avoid that, could they?

My biggest bugaboo is a tiny glitch... unless you're a Superman fan. Fort Rozz should have been around an orange or red sun to make it a legitimate threat to Supergirl. Blue-white suns give normal humans Kryptonian-like powers, and supercharge Kryptonians to the point of having difficulty controlling their powers.

Some nice bits, but some distractions that are disguised as story elements, and I don't need those.

Alex's subplot, beyond the 'bonding with Ruby' stuff, was rather pointless, especially the way they might have done a good 'teachable moment' about bullying and made it into a comedy bit. And speaking of ineffective, did I miss Imra doing anything 'Saturn Girl'ish? It was so focused on Kara, Livewire, and Psy, they forgot to give Imra anything to do.

Wasn't the 'Rozz' they named the fort after some Krtptonian public figre who later(after the fort was opened) turned bad? Kind of like Zod in comic-book continuity?

Brian O' - I didn't see Saturn Girl her using her powers. Of course, she was the only one qualified to fly the Legion cruiser, but still...

COROLLARY: Men and women are different, but so are other races. Do men have y chromosomes on other planets, or are they different? We've got Kryptonians, Martians, Daxamites, and Coluans - are we SURE they're all that similar to humans?

And I may be misremembering, but I thought in the episode, Supergirl mentioned that the Rozz prisoner was the one they named it after.

Yes..but I was wondering if she had been named for her before she 'turned bad' and become an inmate there.
I don't know all the particulars of 'Silver and Bronze Age Krypton', but wasn't the old Fort Rozz the Kryptonian equivalent of Fort Knox(storage place for gold reserves?)

How did Reign have her powers around this blue sun thing while Supergirl did not? They’re both Kryptonian

Supergirl asked her the same thing. 
She said something like "there's more to my powers you don't understand".

I seem to recall that Reign indicated that there are more to her powers than just a sun... but I'm not sure I recall entirely. The whole Reign character with magical powers is starting to twitch me a little...

Hokey religionsand ancient weapons are no match for heat vision and super breath. :)

Psi "accidentally" attacking Imra was such a weird scene that I was expecting it to pay off with some reveal about Saturn Girl. Maybe it still will.

Michael R. - Surely is possible. After all, Professor X fiddled with Jean Grey that way...

Watched episodes 17 & 18 (18 was last night). I almost feel I might be the only one here still watching this show.

Is Reign an update of Black Flame? I used to have the '60s comic with that character in the Supergirl story.
