We've got an early contender for "Best Crossover From Another Medium" with the introduction of the Legion of Superheroes in 'Smallville'. However, they weren't identified as Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, and Saturn Girl; instead they gave Clark Kent their given names of Rokk Krinn, Garth Ranzz, and Irma Ardeen, respectively.

It's a shame that 'Smallville' takes place in the 'West Wing' universe (where Superman hasn't yet made his official presence known), because I'd love to see the Legion of Superheroes operating in the main Toobworld... especially Brainiac 5! I've always thought he'd be perfect as a TV character - super-intelligent, green-skinned, and blonde. He'd certainly have a striking visual quality.
