Synopsis for "Cleopatra, Queen of America"
Lilibet Winsor, an exchange student from London is visiting an exhibition of an ancient Egyptian rod and suddenly feels herself drawn to it. Taking it she finds that all around her bow to her in servitude. Meanwhile, Congresswoman Barbara Gordon is paying a visit to the New Athens Campus where she is shown around by Linda Danvers (neither aware that the other woman is Batgirl or Supergirl respectively)
When a tornado inside a building threatens students, both women dawn their costumed guises and save them and find out that it's the Egyptian staff (once owned by Cleopatra) that is causing the trouble, at Lilibet's request, Supergirl takes the staff away. However, later Linda sees a news report telling that the U.S. Congress has turned over power to the Untied States to Queen Cleopatra, who is really Lilibet.
Flying to Washington D.C., Supergirl is met and attempts to wrest the mind controlling wand from Lilibet's hands, but this fails, the rod weakening her powers. Lilibet sends the Justice League of America against Supergirl, their combined might makes short work of the Girl of Steel who is then dumped in a river. She is rescued by Batgirl and the two devise a plan to stop Lilibet.
Attacking her once more, Supergirl is interrupted by the arrival of the "real" Cleopatra demanding her rod back, and makes short work of Supergirl as an example of her power. Not wanting to loser her control, Lilibet restores Supergirl's full power, but Supergirl then takes the rod away from her and throws it into the sun. With order restored once more, the "real" Cleopatra was revealed to be Batgirl in disguise.

Synopsis for "The Irresistible Lois Lane!"
This story is reprinted from Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane #29.
Aliens capture Superman in a Green Kryptonite trap, and Lois Lane smuggles Red Kryptonite to him by kissing Aquaman, Batman, and Green Arrow with Red K-imprinted lipstick. The heroes smear the lipstick from their face to handkerchiefs, which Batman takes to Superman, at the Fortress of Solitude. The Man of Steel smears himself with the Red K, which makes him impervious to Kryptonite poisoning, and allows him to recover and defeat the aliens. Afterwards, Superman gives Lois a well deserved kiss after their plan was a total success.
