Supergirl is asked to place markers on the nine planets with the names of the top nine most-admired men on the Stanhope campus. In the process, she fights and destroys robotic "Metal Lions" on Pluto. When she comes back, the class votes on the top nine women, and Supergirl places last.

Synopsis for "The Heroine in the Haunted House!"
Linda Danvers is investigating the case of a supposedly haunted house, belonging to an inventor called Amos Ameswell. Said house drives mad anyone who stays overnight alone, like horror-movie actor Vincent Sale.
Arriving, Kara notes a portray of Ameswell, portrayed in luminous paint as a grim reaper, and a weird custom-made TV set which she guesses was built by the inventor himself.
After a while, Linda sees a ghost of Jor-El mocking her before vanishing. She changes into her costume, and is attacked by a Kryptonian thought-beast that melts away instantly when she fires her heat vision.
Supergirl appears to go crazy, and then Jax-Ur and his cronies of the Phantom Zone -General Zod and Kru-El- appear. Their mental emanations can reach anyone in the house through a custom-made television set created by Amos Ameswell, the supposedly-dead inventor. They created the phantoms seen by Supergirl and intend to grab her and take her back to the Phantom Zone with them.
However Supergirl only pretended to be crazy. She turns off the TV set and banishes the Phantom Zoners. But she is still left with what appears to be the ghost of Amos Ameswell, dressed as Death... and swinging his sickle at her.
- No special notes.
- Vincent Sale is based on hammy horror-movie actor Vincent Price.
