Synopsis for "The Man with the Eternity Hands!"
When Peter Barton takes Linda Danvers, Valerie Myles, and several others from New Athens on a tour of the Santa Augusta Theater, which has been closed for almost a century due to rumors of a haunting--and which Barton hopes to reopen--the group are visited by the real ghost of actor Hector Mandella, who proclaims that no play will be performed in the theater until his murder is avenged. Supergirl is unable to affect the ghost with her powers. Barton tells her that, almost 100 years ago, Mandella was killed by a real dagger which was exchanged for a prop during a murder mystery play. Thomas Marshall, a rival actor, failed to get the role and had warned Mandella he would not live to complete his performance, but he died several days before the play opened. Supergirl goes back in time to the night of the murder to investigate, in disguise. She sees the accidental killing of Mandella by an actor wielding the knife, but, more importantly,
sees in the crowd a man wearing a wristwatch--and there were no wristwatches native to 1879. She pursues the man, catches up to him, and hears his story: he is Theodore Marshall, thief and
grandson of Thomas Marshall, whose family has been impoverished. During a laboratory theft, his wristwatch became irradiated by a ray-machine, turning it into a time-travel device. He then came back 100 years into the past, hoping to change history and have his grandfather get the role he wanted. Unable to do that, Theodore himself exchanged the prop knife for the real one,
ensuring Mandella's murder. Supergirl pursues Marshall, but the chase is complicated by Marshall's 25-year jumps into the future, and the power his wristwatch has to let him turn things into their original form, such as a leather article into a rampaging bull. Supergirl short-circuits his device when pursuing him to 1979, and Marshall is turned into a baby. She takes him to Midvale Orphanage and returns to New Athens, confident that Peter Barton can safely open the theater.
