We re-evaluate prospects for Supersymmetry at a future Electron Positron Linear Collider in light of the first 5 fb^-1 of data taken at LHC with $\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV proton proton collisions. Strong new limits from LHC SUSY searches, along with a hint of a Higgs boson signal around $m_h\sim 125$ GeV, suggest a paradigm shift from previously popular models to ones with new and compelling signatures. We present a variety interesting Linear Collider benchmark points in scenarios including: natural SUSY, hidden SUSY, the Kallosh-Linde model, NUHM2 with low $m_A$, as well as the remaining phase space of mSUGRA/CMSSM. While all proposed benchmark points at present elude LHC limits - and some will at least for a long time - they are compatible with electroweak precision and flavour observables and do offer intriguing case studies for a Linear Collider operating at $\sqrt{s} = 0.25-1$ TeV.
