Synopsis for "Who Is Superwoman? (Part II of VI) - Clashes"
Superwoman and Supergirl fight one another in the skies above the Earth. Superwoman wants Kara to return to New Krypton and repeatedly tells her that she's not safe on Earth. Kara fights back, but Superwoman surprises her by projecting a wall of frozen ice – a power that is not traditionally associated with Kryptonians. The frozen Supergirl drops into the sea, but before Superwoman can act further, she receives a communiqué from General Sam Lane instructing her to retrieve a "stray dog".
In Metropolis, Inspector Mike Henderson is present at the Metropolis City Hospital, where a surgical team is attempting to remove the armor from the deceased Agent Liberty. Before they can make any headway, the process is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Lucy Lane. Lane is authorized by Secret Service to retrieve Agent Liberty's body before the medical team can go any further. Henderson and she exchange words, but Lucy is undeterred.
Sometime later, an exhausted Supergirl arrives at Lana Lang's farmhouse and collapses in her arms.
Meanwhile, Superwoman finds Reactron just as he is preparing to murder a woman named Lori in her home. As the two fight, Reactron blasts Superwoman with gold Kryptonite radiation, but it appears to have no effect. Reactron cannot understand why the Kryptonite doesn't faze her. Superwoman grabs Reactron by the throat, smiles and says "Why Reactron – whoever said I was Kryptonian?"
