Synopsis for "Crucible, Part One"
After her time in the Red Lantern Corps and new battles against Brainiac and Cyborg-Superman, Kara Zor-El is making a serious effort to embrace Earth as her home and let her troubled past go. She has moved to New York City, is working as barista in Elixir Café and is dating a nice boy named Michael.
Wile working, Clark comes to see her cousin and both has a heart-to-heart talk. Clark thinks that place is not safe for her or for everyone else, and Kara reminds him that she was saving lives as a Red Lantern while he "turned into an uncontrollable monster whose path of destruction led to a Kryptonite bomb being dropped", and she actually reached out to him, so why he gets to judge her. Clark insists he doesn't want to fight with her but she'd be better off training with people who could help her. Nonetheless, she wants live among the people she fights to protect. Kara sees her cousin is worried about his power, the consequences of its misuse and about her, and she tells him she's sorry, but she has to make her own decisions. Before leaving, she says she hopes he finds the answers he's looking for.
Kara is walking home back from work when she is suddenly transported to an alien world in where she has to fight different adversaries in different environments to prove her worthiness. Then she is greeted by Lys Amata, one of the preceptors of Crucible Academy, an interestellar school in where heroes from different worlds train to hone their skills and fulfill their potential. And she would like to welcome Kara to Crucible.
Back on Earth, it's revealed that Superboy is still alive and trying to lead a quiet life while he figures things out.
