It was speculated that a “backdoor” pilot for a Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes series was written and animated for the series in the form of the 2006 JLU episode “Far From Home” by Paul Dini and Dwayne McDuffie. However, the Legion series is unrelated to “Far From Home” or the 1998 episode of Superman: The Animated Series titled “New Kids in Town” (which did share continuity between series and episodes). James Tucker confirmed it to be untrue as the show was originally supposed to be Cartoon Network’s way of cashing in on Superman Returns. Cartoon Network later passed on having the series, hence its inclusion on Kids’ WB. Beginning 2006, DC Comics did, however, have Supergirl join the Legion in its regular DC Universe title.
