Mon-El is finally suiting up on Supergirl!

With Kara (Melissa Benoist) still out of commission after her battle with Reign (Odette Annable), Mon-El (Chris Wood) and his fellow members of the Legion of Superheroes will have to step up to protect National City. Hence, Mon-El will finally be donning his super suit.

So far, Supergirl has stayed somewhat faithful to Mon-El’s comic book story line: After suffering lead poisoning, Mon-El was placed in the Phantom Zone until Brainiac-5 discovered a cure in the 30th Century, during which time Mon-El joined the Legion under the name Valor. On the show, of course, Mon-El was forced to leave Earth after the release of the lead dispersal device, accidentally going through a wormhole that landed him in the 30th Century, where he’s now a member of the Legion and married to Saturn Girl (Amy Jackson). The show’s version of Brainiac-5 (Jesse Rath) will debut in the midseason premiere.

Here’s the logline: “Struggling to heal from her injuries inflicted by Reign, Supergirl remains in a dreamlike state, unable to be reached. Mon-El recruits one of the Legion members, Brainiac-5, to try to bring her back. Meanwhile, Reign continues her rampage on the city so the DEO teams up with the Legion of Superheroes to try to stop her.”
