Synopsis for "The Girl with the Martian Powers"

After Diane Meade collars gangster Cleat Groves, her life is endangered by members of Groves's gang seeking revenge. But J'onn J'onzz secretly saves her, while making it appear as though Diane has gained Martian powers from a fake “meteorite” from Mars which has fallen nearby. J'onzz confesses the hoax to Captain Harding saying the ruse is intended to make Groves's gang think she is super-powered and thus quit attacking her. But the plan backfires when Harding and J'onzz learn that Diane has gone after Groves's gang herself, intending to capture them with her “Martian powers”. J'onzz uses his own powers to make it seem as though she is fighting the thugs with superhuman abilities, then, after the gang is captured, convinces Diane that her “powers” have worn off.
