Appearing in "The Three Magic Wishes!"
- Tom Baxter (Single appearance)
Synopsis for "The Three Magic Wishes!"
This story is reprinted from Action Comics #257.
When reading Fairy Tales to the young children of Midvale Orphanage, Linda Lee is interrupted by Tom Baxter, the resident trouble maker. Dismissing Fairy Tales as foolish, Tom begins to mock them in front of the children. Deciding that Baxter needs to be taught a lesson, Linda decides to handle this situation as Supergirl.
Creating as fairy costume, Supergirl bursts into the room in hopes of teaching Baxter a lesson, however Tom doesn't believe that Supergirl is really a fairy and thinks the whole display is a hoax. In order to prove Tom "wrong" Supergirl manages to complete a series of magical feats (really using her super-powers.) She manages to fly around the room (using her flight powers), make a magic mirror out of a window, change a rabbit into a horse and back again, and as a finally, she ties up Tom with unbreakable string (Really strands of her hair) and make it appear as though his nose grows when he lies.
Supergirl then uses hypnosis to make all the children think they dreamed the whole episode, and is satisfied when Baxter declines to hear the story of Pinocchio and is convinced the trouble maker will not interrupt story time again.
