Synopsis for "Invasion of the Mer-Men (Part II)"
Supergirl finds the secret base of the Mer-Men underwater, and discovers they are loading giant "tanker" space-globes with water to be shipped to their home planet. The globes
have force-fields that resist any attempt Earth makes to destroy them. Supergirl locates and rescues Johnny, then smashes the globes herself and lets them rain their waters back on Earth.
Finally, the Mer-Men leader gives up, telling Supergirl that they couldn't load enough water up in time to save his world, anyway. He and the other Mer-Men depart, resigned to their eventual
extinction. Realizing this, Supergirl cries.

Synopsis for "Fight With Fire Drake"
Freddy Nero, a party-crasher, tries romancing Linda Danvers at a party aboard the yacht of Mr. Stanton, the owner of KSF-TV. Minutes later, a scuba-costumed, masked villain called Fire Drake, who "breathes fire" with an acetylene torch nosepiece, loots the yacht and its passengers with his gang. Supergirl tries to follow, but her powers fail and she is repelled by Fire Drake's flame. Later, Linda Danvers is summoned by Allura to Kandor, where her father Zor-El has some new power-substitution gimmicks for her: a bracelet which can enhance her normal strength when she is depowered, replacing the exo-skeleta cyborg, and her Legion of Super-Heroes flight-ring, to replace her jet-boots. Supergirl encounters Fire Drake a second time,
captures him, and unmasks him as Freddy Nero.

Synopsis for "The Condemned Legionnaires"
This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #313.
When most the female members of the Legion of Super-Heroes (and Night Girl of the Legion of Substitute Heroes) come down with the Crimson Virus, they have to be sent to a quarantine planet. The rest of the female members are hunted down by a mysterious masked villain named Satan Girl, who seems to be infecting the female Legionnaires with the virus.
With the arrival of Supergirl, who is immune to the virus, the male Legion members try to learn the origins of Satan Girl. When she proves immune to Kryptonite, Lead and an anti-android weapon, the heroes are puzzled to figure out her true identity. Unable to defeat her due to her superior powers, Supergirl has the Legion go and collect the Legion of Super-Pets, as Satan Girl's powers would not effect them. The Super-Pets manage to easily defeat Satan Girl, who is unmasked, revealing that she is really -- Supergirl!? The weakened Satan Girl explains that she is the product of Red Kryptonite, which Supergirl was exposed to upon entering the 30th Century. Knowing that she had only 48 hours of life, she adopted the guise of Satan Girl and created a device that would siphon the Red Kryptonite radiation and infect females with it, in hopes that once she had rid herself of the Red Kryptonite energies she could live past the 48 hour period which Red Kryptonite effects.
With her plan a failure, and the 48 hours running their course, Satan Girl merges with Supergirl. After wards, the Legion learns that Satan Girl managed to handle Green Kryptonite because she wore a lead suit. After this revelation, although they are victorious and their female members restored to normal, the Legion takes a moment to feel pity for Satan Girl, for all she wanted to do was live.
