Synopsis for Supergirl: "A Matter of Gravity"

Supergirl hears on a TV news report that an old friend from Stanhope College, Rudi Clement, has apparently blown up his home in a gravitational experiment. When she goes to check on him, she discovers he has become the Gravitronic Man, master of the force of gravity. Clement rails at an absent foe, "Tain", and causes gravitic disruptions that throw Supergirl and other people and anything not tied down into the air. Meanwhile, in England, the new Doom Patrol is trying to cope with a similarly-powered gravity-disrupting menace, an armored man named Tain, who is crushing them with increased gravity. Unknown to all, the disembodied intelligence is behind the Gravatonic Man's destructive tactics.
