Pretty good episode. From the previews, I'd guessed that one of the Olympians was Matter-Eater Lad, but I never expected him to actually take part in combat.

However, the introduction of the un-uniformed Ultra Boy was a complete surprise. One quibble: I would've thrown in a line about Jo possessing limited powers, or some other statement about why a non-superhero has powers. Might have been confusing for those unfamiliar with the Legion.

Phantom Girl was great. Loved her impression of Superman. I get the impression that her mother doesn't have phantom powers. This seems to confirm comments that the various powered populations: Braal, Titan, etc. do not have powers in this series. Hope they aren't going with this. I understand if they want to make the Legionnaires unique, but it gives their homeworlds some extra spice.

One of the announcers mentioned the Khunds. I wonder if they'll be showing up soon. I'd prefer the Dominators though.
