Stanyon confirmed it then stated they both did their own stunts. Donner then opened the floor up to audience questions. An attendee immediately asked Stanyon about her divorce with Lord. Superboy entered the room and encouraged Miss Martian to ask Stanyon about "Hello, Megan!" and Marie Logan. Donner acknowledged her and she asked her question.
