Phantom Zone

Indexer Notes

The real Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy, and Triplicate Girl do not appear in this story, only their Chameleon Men impostors.

Supergirl's statement that she and Whizzy are the only two phantoms in the Phantom Zone is incorrect. In fact, both Mon-El and the Mighty Gazor are still there.
