Synopsis for "Princess of the Golden Sun!"

Linda Danvers leaves Vandyre University and goes to New Athens Experimental School in Florida to become a counselor there. Not long afterward, she encounters and battles Tlaca, a warrior-princess of a lost Aztec tribe, who possesses super-powers comparable to her own. Tlaca is at first defeated and imprisoned, but she uses her meditation techniques to develop power more than equal to Supergirl's in seven days time. Supergirl deduces that Tlaca's power derives from the magnetic field of the Earth. She uses an electromagnet to nullify Tlaca's powers and defeats her again. Taking Tlaca to prison, Supergirl says that she will be placed in a special electromagnetic jail cell. Tlaca vows to escape and revenge herself on Supergirl.
