Synopsis for "Starfire's Revenge!"
Supergirl is questioning her own self-worth now her powers are coming and going and she has failed to capture the crimelord known as Starfire. Forcing herself to stop her inner brooding, Kara Zor-El uses her super-senses to scan the city and find Starfire. Sadly, her powers vanish right when she has spotted her enemy.
Starfire and Dr. Kangle take a flight to Paris where Starfire plans to pull off her next heist. Starfire also plots to eliminate Supergirl's powers forever with a stronger dose of Kangle's formula. To get someone to administer it to her, Starfire contacts Derek Ames's brother Rodney. She tells him that Supergirl murdered his brother while maddened by Kangle's serum. Rodney desires vengeance for his brother, and Starfire hands him a gun loaded with capsules of the formula and tells him she will lure Supergirl to Paris. Once de-powered, Supergirl can be killed in any way Rodney chooses.
The next days Starfire makes herself visible in Parisian high society. Kara, seeing photos of her foe and a story detailing Derek's death, reasons that she had Derek murdered. Despite of his actions, she can not help but feeling sorry for his horrible death. She also thinks if she can prove Starfire murdered him, she can end her criminal career.
Supergirl flies to Paris to capture Starfire, who is executing the theft of the entire fall fashion line of Paul De Paris, a designer. Supergirl fails to capture Starfire, and Rodney fails to de-power or kill Supergirl. But she convinces Rodney to listen to her side of the story, and that he may be in danger for having failed Starfire like his brother did.
When Rodney brings Starfire an apparently unconscious and depowered Supergirl, she has them both thrown in a barred pit and lets in a gorilla to kill them. Supergirl renders the ape unconscious, frees them both, and battles Starfire and her gang. Starfire leaps to freedom from a high window in her castle hideout, landing in the moat. She emerges on shore after Supergirl and Rodney lead Kangle and her gang away.
