Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

Enjoy the hugs and kisses and ups and downs of everyone's favorite comic couple ... Supergirl and Brainiac 5!!!

Throughout their history, Brainy has always had a hard time dealing with his emotions and therefore sometimes clams up, seems distant, or awkward. But it is clear that he loves Kara.

He fell in love with her on first sight way back in Action Comics #276!

There was some crushing and hand holding. But back in Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #204, Supergirl decides to leave the Legion for some time. But maybe ... maybe ... if she returns they will pick up where they left off!

Grell drew a beautiful Supergirl and there is passion in that kiss!

Paul Levitz brought Kara back into the Legion for a couple of adventures where Kara tries to reignite the romance. Here in Legion of Super-Heroes #303, they fight the Dark Circle and Emerald Empress. And there is a lot of tension and some quick smooches ...

But this was all too brief ...

She later returns in Tales of the Legion of Super-Heroes #314 and seems much more open about her feelings for Brainy. And he, as usual, has a hard time talking about his feelings

And the story ends in Tales of the Legion of Super-Heroes #315 where Kara again seems confused about this relationship and her place in time. As in SLSH #204, she decides to leave.

The Crisis happened shortly thereafter.

But you can't keep them apart for too long, even if the incarnations change!

In Supergirl Annual #2, a new Brainiac 5 gets smitten with the Linda Danvers Earth Angel Supergirl!

And in a different Supergirl Annual #2, a different Kara has feelings for Brainy and decides it is up to her to make the first move. That's a super-kiss!!!

We haven't seen a Brainy/Kara romance with the New 52 Supergirl. But with the Legion and the JLU teaming up, we'll need to see if the sparks fly!

Hope everyone has a love-filled day!!!

The Head Cheerleader is "Cow Simple" for the High School's Resident Spectrumy Genius Kid...only in the DCU could such a hook up work. Poor Brainiac Five does anyone else get the impression that of everyone in the DCU he took Kara's death in COIE #7 the hardest?
