Synopsis for "Displaced Double Identity"

Supergirl tries to capture the Gyronaut, a crook wearing rotor-blade-equipped armor that can propel him through the air at super-speed. Her efforts are hindered by the Gyronaut's partnership with Ernie, a phony "waiter" who plants a bomb to divert Supergirl's attention from the rotor-powered criminal, and by Valerie Myles, a friend of Linda Danvers who has become convinced she is Supergirl. An alien jewel given by Superman to Linda is transmitting her mentality to Valerie, making her think she is a de-powered Supergirl and that the real Supergirl is an impostor. Supergirl deduces the source of the problem and crushes the jewel, restoring Valerie's real personality. Then she captures the Gyronaut and Ernie.
