Synopsis
The Daxamite on Panoptes, Res-Vir, captures most of Chameleon Boy's team, but Phantom Girl hides and signals the rest of the Legion. As Res-Vir prepares his army to "free" the Daxamite people, Phantom Girl sneaks back to check on Ultra Boy and draws Res-Vir's attention. Mon-El arrives to protect her and releases the rest of the team, but finds he is significantly out-powered by Res-Vir's army.
