Synopsis for "Good-Looking Corpse, Part One"
At Harvard University, two men debate the merits of invading forces, and how even though bad things happen good things can come from it (like roads and civilization coming out of Ancient Rome). One of them thinks superheroes fighting off alien invasions is stopping the next great progress that could cure disease or end famine. In Metropolis, Lois meets with Catherine Devereux from Cadmus, who seems to want to share some information about a project she was working on.
Kara saves someone falling off a building, who did it so she would catch him and he could ask for her phone number.
Back at Harvard, one of the guys (students?) has made an application called Flyover, for tracking superhero sightings that works like FourSquare (people see a hero, check in on the program and earn points, and can then upload photos and videos of the heroes).
Turns out the guy Kara saved and who wanted her number uploaded a photo of her to that very service, and then some sort of portal opens up where Kara is and Parasite, Kryptonite Man, Silver Banshee and Metallo step through. Kara asks who hired them, and Kryptonite Man says they want to kill her for free.
Catherine gives Lois a file folder with all the information on what Cadmus is doing, and Lois seems horrified by it.
Kara fights the villains (with a really bad one-liner) and feels something isn't right.
In the Daily Planet, Perry White wants some local news, when Lois busts in and shouts about Cadmus experimenting with Kryptonian DNA.
Meanwhile the guy behind the superhero tracking program is revealed to be Alex, who has a way of "getting inside your head".
Kara's battle continues, Catherine goes home looking for her sick son, and Alex has stolen the girlfriend of one of his friends. Alex thinks superheros are a threat to humanity, and Supergirl is more of a threat than Superman because she's the future. One of his friends thinks he's talking about killing Supergirl, and he says he's thinking bigger. He then reveals that he knows intimate details about all of his friends and uses it to blackmail them into silence.
Catherine finds her son, presumably dead, and there's a note from Alex that says "It's not nice to talk out of class. Sorry for your loss."
