Appearing in Supergirl: "Kandor vs. Supergirl!"
Synopsis for Supergirl: "Kandor vs. Supergirl!"
Supergirl is ordered to report to the city of Kandor via the shrinking process and micro-wave tunnel. When she arrives, she is arrested, though she tries to fight off the police. Supergirl is visited in her cell by Superman, Jimmy Olsen (both of whom have just had an adventure in Kandor), Van-Zee, and Ak-Var, who tell her that she is subject to Kandorian law through her parentage, and is about to be taken to court. Once there, she discovers her accuser is Shyla Kor-Onn. Shyla accuses Supergirl of illegal seizure and false imprisonment in the Phantom Zone, since her sentence was up by the time Supergirl projected her back into the Zone. Superman, speaking in her defense, says that there was no criminal intent involved. Shyla's lawyer produces a mento-tape recording, which records memories indelibly while stealing them from the person they come from. The tape comes from Lex Luthor, whose recorded memories show a "Supergirl" (actually Lesla-Lar in disguise) breaking him out of jail and committing an armored car robbery with him. Since Supergirl was having memory gaps at the time, caused by Lesla, she cannot prove she was not a crook, though she knows what happened. The lawyer contends that Supergirl returned Shyla to the Phantom Zone when Shyla discovered Supergirl's "criminal past." Supergirl, surprisingly, pleads no contest to the charges. Telling Superman she knows what she is doing, she allows herself to be sent to the Phantom Zone for a 30-day sentence.
