Synopsis for "The Alien Among Us"
An alien being lands near San Francisco with some help from Supergirl, who is eluded by him shortly after he arrives. The alien is subjected to blind fear and prejudice and is attacked by police and citizens alike, despite his own powers and lack of aggressive force-- though he does use potent defensive force. The alien's presence sets off a spate of xenophobic riots in San Francisco. He takes refuge in a tenement building and is befriended by a child who feeds him. In return, he heals the boy's paralyzed arm. But the child's father learns of it and lures the alien into a trap. Before Supergirl can save him, he is killed by a shell from a tank.

After the Legion of Super-Heroes appoints Brainiac 5 as the new leader of the Legion, he learns of an impending alien invasion and believes that their Plan-R would be required to stop the invasion. When Brainiac 5 becomes leery of the romances of Phantom Girl to Ultra Boy, and Saturn Girl to Lightning Lad.
In response to Brainiac 5's demands that the cease their romantic relationships, the four Legion members instead get married and quit the Legion. Learning of this, the alien invaders send three of their operatives as three potential Legion recruits: Size Lad, Blackout Boy and Magnetic Kid, to infiltrate the Legion and learn what Plan-R is.
They manage to infiltrate the Legion long enough to steal the book which has the details of Plan-R and take it back to their home planet to be decipher. In cracking the code, they learn that Plan-R is to create super power pills. However the Legion, reunited with their "married" members (which was all part of an elaborate hoax to force the invaders hands) who stop the aliens plot.
