However, when they do find some, such as when they are attacked by an alien beast, and caught in quicksand, they manage to free themselves with different futuristic devices before Supergirl can secretly come to their rescue. When the boys return to the orphanage, Supergirl uses her x-ray vision to learn that Tommy is to be adopted that day. Deciding to check on his arriving adoptive family, Supergirl finds that their ship is in trouble and smashes all the meteors that bar their path ensuring that they make it to the space orphanage.
