Synopsis for "Fire and Ice"
Superboy gets back from his trip to the 30th Century, following he adventure with the Legion of Super-Heros to rescue Valor, which was a success. As he gets to the door of The Compound, Knockout comes tearing out and knocks him clear back onto the beach. She seems on top of the world, happy to be brawling with the Kid, and tells him how she'll be staying there. Superboy is thrilled--all the rest are not. There is no time to argue, however, as snow begins to fall.
Killer Frost has arrived in Hawaii, her powers augmented by Neron. Superboy offers his Legion flight ring to Knockout, but she prefers that he carry her, so SB tosses it to Roxy, who is worried that the snow will stop her from getting to take the police examination. Killer Frost marches straight into Honolulu, freezing everything that gets near her. Tana theorizes that since she absorbs heat (is drawn to it) she's heading for the Kilauea Caldera on the big island. Superboy and Knockout engage her, but it's tought since they can't even touch her without risking frostbite. Knockout tosses a car and Superboy whacks her with a telephone pole, but neither slows her down. SB manages to rupture a gas main beneath the street, and while Killer Frost is distracted by the fire, Knockout chucks a trailer of liquid oxygen on top of her. Knockout grabs SB and gives him a kiss, telling him how she's more alive now than she's been in a long time. There is no sign of Frost.
Afterwards, Superboy reassures Tana that she's the only girl for him, and Tana secretly plans on finding out the truth about Knockout. Back at the compound, the fiery redhead gets a visit from Neron, offering her more power in exchange for her soul, but she outright rejects his offer. Roxy makes it in time to take the police exam--the Legion flight ring is on her finger.
- No special notes.
- Knockout is one of the few villains who rejected Neron's offer.
