Synopsis for "Death-Scream from the Sky!"

The Wayne Foundation has sent a communications satellite into orbit, only to find that it has been equipped with a laser cannon that can be used to destroy whole cities and that the Children of Light, a terrorist group, is threatening to use it to destroy Gotham City unless their leader, Kahman Abhood, is released from custody. Batman goes to investigate at S.T.A.R. Labs, where the satellite was manufactured, and finds an unconscious Supergirl there.

After reviving the heroine, Batman learns that, as Linda Danvers, Supergirl helped counsel student prodigy Josh Kimble, a part-time worker at STAR Labs, but whenever he came close to her, her powers faded. As Supergirl, she discovered him sabotaging the satellite, but was stripped of her powers by his presence and knocked out by an unseen attacker. Batman and Supergirl team up and eventually discover that Dr. Light is aiding the Children of Light, and that the satellite is protected by a red-sun radiation field that strips Supergirl of her powers.

Batman deduces that Josh Kimble had absorbed enough of the radiation while working on the satellite to cause power-loss to Supergirl. Batman and Supergirl invade the Children of Light's headquarters, and, with the red-sun field shut down, Supergirl is barely able to destroy the satellite before Dr. Light can fire a deadly blast at Gotham. Batman defeats and captures Light and the terrorists and once the case is solved, he praises Supergirl's ability and aid, and she is flattered.
