Synopsis for "Treachery"
A race of alien warriors led by the conqueror Gur and his more pacifistic brother land on Earth below its seas in secret. Then one of their secret agents places a pair of spectacles on Supergirl's eyes that enable them to mentally control her. The aliens plan to control every super-hero on Earth through the glasses, and to use them as an invincible space-army. Gur succeeds in getting Supergirl to get Superman to put on a pair of alien glasses, and he falls under their domination as well. But Gur's brother, repentant, tricks Supergirl into melting the glasses with her heat-vision. Superman goes to the Justice League Satellite to try and persuade them to don other pairs of the glasses, saying they will give his friends "super-vision". Supergirl appears, and Superman begins fighting her and the other Leaguers. At Supergirl's prompting, Green Lantern uses his ring to destroy Superman's glasses, removing him from the aliens' control. Meanwhile, back at the spaceship, Gur goes after his treacherous brother, breaches the hull of his ship with a ray-blast, and is shot by one of his own soldiers. Gur's brother goes below to die with Gur as the waters flood the belowdecks of their ship. Later, Superman and Supergirl build the remaining aliens a new spacecraft so they can return home.
