Synopsis for "The Walking Bombs!"

Supergirl comes upon a bank robbery carried out by a bomb-equipped android, but cannot apprehend it or stop the theft for fear of people in the bank being killed by an explosion. She trails the robot to its desert headquarters, where she meets its creator, Robert Meekly, who imprisons her within electrical bars. If she walks into the bars, he warns, she will trigger a massive explosion in San Francisco. Meekly, who has created a number of bomb-robots, explains that he had been married and had an eight-year-old son 12 years ago who was blinded by a car accident. Since the banks would not loan him enough money for an operation to restore the child's sight, Meekly, who worked in a bank, stole the money himself and altered the books. After the operation was performed, the deed was discovered, Meekly was jailed, and his wife moved away with his son, promising that he would never see either of them again. After his release from jail, Meekly created the robot bombs, seeking to rob and then destroy every bank in the country. Supergirl, whose powers momentarily fade, short-circuits the electrical bars with a hairpin. Her powers return. Meekly has sent off two androids in giant ball-craft to different locations, and tells Supergirl she will only be able to stop one. Supergirl tells him that she recalls the name of a teller in one of the banks: Robert Meekly, Jr. Aghast, Meekly goes to retrieve his android and does so, though it explodes and kills him. Supergirl finds the other android in time and takes it into the desert to detonate harmlessly. Later, when Linda and the KSF crew are combing the wreckage of one explosion, they find Meekly's body, with his hand clutching a Little League award his son had once won.
