This story is reprinted from Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #63.

Four Kandorian criminals gas the population of Kandor into unconsciousness and escape from the city's bottle. But Jimmy Olsen, visiting in the Fortress of Solitude, uses a Red Kryptonite ray on them, and thus gives the four of them outlandish-appearing heads. Later, the four Kandorians are captured by members of the Legion of Super-Villains who imitate them as part of a plot to free the Phantom Zone villains, but Jimmy, Supergirl, and the Superman robots capture them instead.

Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Anti-Supergirl Plot!"

This story is reprinted from Action Comics #350.

Linda Danvers is attending a party and watching a band of performers called "The Heroes" who disguise themselves as Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Batman, and Supergirl. However, the band is a front for a gang of thieves that case mansions while their audience is distracted with their solo singer.

After two consecutives instances of a mansion being plundered after a "The Heroes" performance, Linda grows suspicious. As Supergirl, Kara interrogates Kim Lorne, the Supergirl-costumed solo singer, and learns Kim believed her band were honest musicians, but she has just found out they are crooks, and they have threatened to harm her parents if she goes to the police.

Supergirl has the idea to impersonate Kim. Later, during another gig in the Metropolis Atlethic Club, Kara delivers an amazingly good performance as the gang cases the club, and the gang leader "Fingers" Cooley grows suspicious. Later Supergirl attacks them when they are sneaking into the place, but Cooley immobilizes her with a piece of Kryptonite stolen during their latest heist. Supergirl accidentally collapses against the light switch and blacks out the room.

The gang turns the light back on and they are going to finish their heist when they are ambushed by the real Justice League. Then Kim takes off her disguise and reveals she noticed the missing piece of Kryptonite when she was looking in their hideout for evidence. Realizing Cooley was setting a trap, she put on her Supergirl disguise and rushed to the Club. She was the one who put out the light and then swtiched places with Supergirl. Supergirl was still too weak to move so the summoned the real JL.

Synopsis for Bizarro: "The Good Deeds of Bizarro-Luthor!"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #293.

When Bizarro No. 1 and his family are exiled from Htrae for making something perfect--the "S" symbol on the Bizarros' shirts--he creates a Bizarro-Luthor with the imperfect duplicating ray to help him regain his status. The Bizarro-Luthor is as noble as the real Luthor is evil, so he demands Bizarro do three good deeds before he will help. Grudgingly, Bizarro does the deeds, and Luthor gives him the idea he really needed: mass-produce Bizarro shirts with the "S" symbol backwards. With the terrible fashion misstatement now corrected, the Bizarros welcome their first family back to Htrae, and Luthor is honored with a pie in the face.
