Synopsis for "Supergirl's Greatest Victory!"

This story is reprinted from Action Comics #262.

As the children of Midvale Orphanage enjoy a day playing outside, Linda Lee secretly uses her powers to insure that the children have a good time. Later, viewing a chunk of Kryptonite crashing on Earth, Linda reflects on the events that led to her coming to Earth and becoming Supergirl. In recalling these events, she comes up with an idea to possibly counteract the effects of Kryptonite. Changing into Supergirl, the Girl of Steel flies to Superman's Fortress of Solitude to tell him of her idea.

She suggests slow exposures to Kryptonite might eventually make them immune to it's effects. Superman tells her that he's already tried this and it didn't work. Supergirl, having just recently arrive on Earth, suggests that maybe since she is new to Kryptonite's effects maybe she can develop an immunity. Superman tries to dissuade her from this idea, and changes the subject by showing her the various alien artifacts, plants and animals that he's brought to Earth from his various missions in space. Using her x-ray vision to see a special rainbow flower, the accidentally breaks open the display case of an alien creature that eats metal, unknown to them the creature escapes.

Leaving the Fortress, Supergirl decides to try and test her theory without Superman's help. She finds a chunk of Kryptonite in a cave to test her powers on. To her surprise the experiment works, and as time goes by she can get closer and closer to the Kryptonite without feeling its ill effects or it effecting her powers. Superman uses his x-ray vision to check on his cousin and sees that she has succeeded. Deciding to burrow to where she is, Superman comes across another Kryptonite meteor deep in the Earth, and is immediately struck ill from it. Witnessing her cousins plight, Supergirl goes to his rescue and finds that this Kryptonite has its full effect on her. The two narrowly cheat death by using their waning x-ray vision to melt enough of the cavern ceiling to cover the Kryptonite.

Investigating the Kryptonite bolder that Supergirl has been testing with, they discover the metal eater had been eating the Kryptonite from the inside out, and the more the alien ate, the less powerful the Kryptonite became. Discovering the truth, they return the creature to it's cage and Supergirl vows to avoid being so reckless in the future.

Synopsis for "The Insect Queen of Smallville"

This story is reprinted from Superboy #124.

While in the forest one day, Lana Lang hears the cries of an insectoid alien that is trapped under a tree. Upon freeing the alien, it shows it's gratitude by giving her a ring that allows her to grant it's wearer any number of powers based on the abilities of insects.

After testing out her new found powers, Lana decides to become a costumed super-hero and becomes the Insect Queen. She then begins traveling around Smallville and stopping criminals, upstaging Superboy each time. Later, once again coming up with another idea to find out if Clark Kent is really Superboy, Lana traps him in a cocoon when radio reports of trouble are reported over the radio.

Lana is shocked when the cocoon suddenly flies off, Clark changes into Superboy and stops the trouble (a pizza place called the Leaning Tower of Pizza was toppling) and returns to the cocoon before Lana can get to it. There Superboy emerges as Clark Kent with butterfly wings which make it appear as though he's "flying", but his wings quickly "wither" (thanks to his X-Ray vision.) Once again convinced that Clark Kent isn't Superboy, Lana gives up and hangs up her Insect Queen costume, planning to someday have more adventures.
