Synopsis for "Super-girl?"
Some hours after being left for dead for Starfire's gang, Supergirl comes around and discovers she is wounded and her powers ebbed away. As she staggeringly heads to her secret headquarters, her powers return momentarily. After reflecting on the past hours, Kara deduces Derek is responsible for her powers coming and going.
Kara goes to the bottle city of Kandor for a scientific examination. The Kandorian scientists cannot reverse her condition, and say that she will have "on-again-off-again" super-powers for the duration of its effect. But they design an "exo-skeleta cyborg" for her, worn under her clothes, which gives her some super-strength, and outfit her boots with jets that will allow her to fly when she loses her powers.
In the meantime, Starfire rewards Derek, but has him shot seconds afterward when she fears he will expose her operation. Later, Starfire and her all-woman gang pull bank robberies in the neighboring town of Carvale, where a Mardi Gras celebration is going on.
Supergirl tries to capture the gang at one robbery site, but her powers are off and the women knock her unconscious. The Girl of Steel is taken prisoner. Later, at her headquarters, Starfire confirms for herself that Supergirl has lost her powers, and delivers a punishing martial-arts beating to her, knocking her out again for a brief time.
Supergirl's powers return seconds later, reviving her. She attacks Starfire and her gang, capturing most of the gang members. But Starfire herself and her scientist aide Dr. Kangle escape.
