During their conquest of Earth, the Dominators created the Biological Intelligence Organic Nexus (BION) to replace the Legion as Earth’s champion – one completely subject to Dominion control. A protoplasmic shell was imbued with all the genetic or modified-genetic abilities of the SW6 Legionnaires, who were in Dominion custody, and its mental and nervous systems extrapolated from Brainiac 5’s Computo matrix. Phenomenally powerful and completely obedient, the BION unit succeeded in its first field test – the destruction of former Legionnaire, Atmos. However, BION was mentally unstable, requiring frequent mindwipes to reinforce its programming.

One of its first missions was to recapture the escaped SW6 batch, but a fatal flaw was revealed when it proved unable to differentiate between the older Legion and the SW6 Legionnaires. Engaging the mature Laurel Gand in combat, it pursued her to Talus, where the adult team, possessing several members with whose powers it was unfamiliar, rendered it inactive.

Later, it was disclosed that the Legion had only captured one-third of the BION, as it had activated its Triplicate Girl power before attacking Laurel Gand. Breaking into the Talus HQ, it retrieved its missing third, and the three BIONs escaped.
