      J�Onn tumbled along the crystal sands of the
      desert, landing like a damaged aircraft. His ribs ached
      from the energy-blast, but he was not seriously hurt.
      <br>�Rather effective defense system,� J�Onn mused. His
      powerful green fingers grasped a rock, lifted it from the
      desert floor, and threw it toward the factory. Another
      energy-bolt stabbed out from a hidden gun-turret and
      obliterated the missile. J�Onn nodded once. He picked up two
      rocks and hurled them from different directions at
      once. From two different spots, energy-bolts blasted
      the rocks into dust.<br>�Yes, a very effective
      defense system,� J�Onn said. �But perhaps I can turn it
      to my own advantage!� The Martian champion knelt on
      the desert, and began rubbing his hands back and
      forth across the crystal sands, faster and faster.
      �Unless I�m very much mistaken,� J�Onn thought, as he
      felt the crystal sands melting under the
      ever-increasing friction of his hands, �those beams are some kind
      of coherent light, not unlike a laser. And if I�m
      right, well, this should help me deal with them!� In
      minutes, J�Onn�s rapidly-moving hands had melted and fused
      the crystal sands into a giant convex glass shield.
      Holding it firmly by the edges, J�Onn took to the sky and
      flew directly at the building. Again a dazzling
      energy-bolt shot out; J�Onn tilted the glass shield, caught
      the bolt, and reflected it back at the building.
      There was a loud sound like a thunderclap, and the bolt
      tore a huge hole in the side of the building. Bolts
      shot out from two other hidden ports; J�Onn swiftly
      deflected them with his shield, rending more holes in the
      factory. In moments, the building was a burning mass of
      ruin.<br>�That takes care of one factory,� J�Onn mused,
      satisfied. �Now to rendezvous with Green Arrow at Moloko
      Valley!�

        BTW, if we ever do a Secret Origin story for the Supergirl of the future, it is worth noting that in her Louise-L identity, Supergirl wears a short black wig, while her friend Lydia-T has shoulder-length blonde hair and looks identical to Lena Thorul. It seemed evident to me that Louise-L could easily have been a false identity, since she obviously wasn't born as a brunette. This begs the question -- what is the birth-name of Louise-L/Lydia-7, and what became of her parents? And is her birth-name a Kryptonian or Rokynian name?

        Cheers,
        Doc
