    He wasn't stuck in the Phantom Zone, but he was stuck in some other portion of space where time stands still. I can't remember what Winn called it exactly, but he addressed that back when Mon-El was still unconscious in the 1st couple eps. They mentioned it again in "Medusa" when we were first introduced to the aliens hunting him - they had just come from that place looking for the pod.

    I can't remember Winn's term for it, but Kara called it "The Wall of Stars"...

    Okay. Thanks Kelly, flickchick85.

    He used to be able to draw on all power sources to heal himself or something. He did that in the second episode. Does he still have that power?

    Also, from a Daxam point of view, does defile mean consensual premarital sex as it would be called in conservative human societies, or would it be rape?

    Because I don't see why Kara should be angry with him for what he was before he crash-landed when the whole point of his storyline is that he has grown. He might have kept the truth back when he found himself in the midst of strangers (about the prince thing, I mean). For his own safety.

    Of course, lying afterwards is problematic, but not deal-breaking I think.

    However, if was rape, it could be deal-breaking for a lot of people even if he promises to never do that again. I can see how it'd be so for Kara.

    The context I was using it in was she was a virgin and he had sex with her and then skipped out on her. Some societies are very strict about a woman being a virgin until marriage and he sullied her, thus diminishing her marital prospects.
    We know Mon-El is very smooth and it was probably consensual at the time, like with Eve Teschmacher. But maybe the girl had regrets later or expected it to be more than a one night stand, was angry, and got her parents involved.

    Defile?

    She was angry with him because of the history between Krypton and Daxam, she grew up being told that Daxamites were Barbaric, hedonistic, conceited, philanderers...in the beginning he was proving her right, so even when he kissed her and she was like... "whoa"....that idea of history is hard to overcome and so she tried to put it behind her. She has simply realized that she is falling for him, and he is changing for the better....and maybe, just maybe he has indeed changed and just as Alex took a leap of faith, she has decided to do the same.

    NOW, once we find out what is going on with Daxam, the people following him, etc...... 1 of 2 things may happen, and maybe even both.

    1. He is in fact the prince, and was to be married before he left and they are now there to make sure it happens....
    2. Kara gets in the way and is in danger....

    OR, as Berlanti and company LOVE TO DO, they totally throw us a curve ball. :)

    But I don't think anything to do with rape is going to come into play... :/

    Wonder if Chris McKay watches Supergirl?
    I think Chris Wood could be a terrific Dick Grayson/Nightwing.

    Kelly I don't think the show will go that dark, I'd rather it keep it's lighter tone.

    I've had that same thought. Hell, even playing Mon-El, he seems more like Dick Grayson than the Mon-El from the comics.

    For those who were concerned that the lame ol' DEO outfit they had him wearing in the 2nd half of the season was the "suit" Chris was talking about that they made for him when he was first cast, fear not - it definitely wasn't. Chris finally clears up the costume confusion in a recent interview with TV Insider (I'm spoiler-tagging it as it does pertain to certain developments THIS season):

    I had no doubt......I wouldn't want it debuted any other way.

    My only fear is which one they choose, or a combination of what?

    Yeah, I was sure it wasn't too (partially because he mentioned something about it being [blackout]quite comic-accurate[/blackout]), but I know there were some doubters out there, so I'm glad they cleared that up for good. [blackout]Can't wait to see it.[/blackout] :up:

    I am surprised that they suited him for a suit THAT fast. But at least they knew to hold off on it.

    Well, they normally will have at the least an outline of how they want the season to go blocked out so they, I'm sure, knew from the "get go" that he would be Valor....they apparently early on wanted him to be Valor sooner... ;)

    About Valor:

    Why does Chris Wood say that bad things happen when heroes disappear? Is Legion of Superhero story and the century they are in bad?

    The Legion are good guys. That doesn't mean everything that's happened to him is positive or easy. The Phantom Zone is not a fun place.

    I would imagine that his time in Phantom Zone will not bring wonderful memories for him...who knows what he had to do, or fight against while there....OR they could very well have him pulled into somewhere completely different where he had to fight for his life....who knows.

    Okay. Does sound the slightest bit ominous though.

    That is what I'm thinking, since they have mentioned it twice in the 2nd season.

    Well we know he's been there before, but I'd imagine the experience would be quite different if this time he wasn't there as a spectator/Prince of Daxam.

    Very true....I was hoping that Kara would end up having to fight her way out of that place at one time. That was what I was hoping for with the "Survivor" episode, something like that but on earth.


    Boy was I disappointed..... :csad:
