Synopsis for "Death of a City!"
Kara Zor-El (Earth-One) rescues her Professor Allan Forsyte from drowning at the beach and helps him get back his house. When the man recovers Linda advises him to lie back and take it easy, but he is committed to work on a cure for sickle-cell anemia and refuses to take a break.
Later Supergirl discovers he is suffering from a brain malady to which there is no known cure. Determined to save him, Supergirl takes him to the Fortress of Solitude to try to find a cure. A computer tells her she must ask Nor-Kan in the Bottle City of Kandor. Supergirl is baffled by that answer, but she takes Forsyte to Kandor, nonetheless.
On her parents house, she confirms what she already knew: Nor-Kan is dead. Yet he was working on a cure-all medicine. When Nor passed, he was buried right with all of his belongings in his tomb, dug into the Mirage Mountain. Supergirl grabs Forsyte and heads to the place in hopes of finding said cure. While she flies over the Desert of Burning Hands she has a brush with a species of giant, horned bird of prey called Satan Swallow, but she manages to escape and make her way to the mountain.
Supergirl finds a vial of "cure-all" formula inside the tomb. Since Forsyte is now dying, she administers it to him. But a recorded message of Nor-Kan's reveals that the "cure-all" also induces giantism, and Forsyte begins to grow.
Supergirl leaves the bottle-city and returns to normal size. Forsyte, cured of his brain disease, is threatening to crush Kandor. Supergirl swiftly heats the glass walls of the bottle and blows it into a bigger shape, enabling her to extract Forsyte. Afterward, she restores the bottle to its original shape and takes Forsyte back home.
