Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Forbidden Weapons of Krypton!"
Lena Thorul actually told Dick Malverne that she had super-powers because her mind was controlled by a device operated by Lesla-Lar, who has recently broken jail in Kandor. Using her teleport ray, Lesla exchanges places with Lena, and imitated her, convincing Supergirl that a special serum had given her super-powers. Later, Lesla-Lar used a Phantom Zone Projector to free Jax-Ur, Kru-El, and General Zod from the Zone. The threesome armed themselves with a cache of forbidden Kryptonian weapons, and repayed her by destroying her with a disintegrator gun. Since Superman was in another time-era on a mission, the three villains set up a force-field that blocked time-travel, and the people of Kandor were made prisoners of their bottle. Both Supergirl and the villains were stalemated when they tryed to use their powers on each other, but the weapons gave the villains the edge. Supergirl was infected with a disease that turned living creatures into plants. But, when Supergirl told Lex Luthor that Lena was prisoner in Kandor, he agreed to help her battle the three Kryptonians.
