Synopsis for "One Super-Villain: Made to Order"
Wonder Woman is flying across Chesapeake Bay when she notices an oil tanker on fire. She leaps down to assist and uses the Lasso of Truth to create a whirlwind to quell the flames. With the fire contained, she then sets to work cleaning up the oil spill.
A yacht containing a group of environmentalists finds her and brings her on board. Wonder Woman meets Deborah Domaine. The two become acquaintances and Debbi volunteers to bring Wonder Woman back to the mainland.
Back in Washington, Wonder Woman changes into Diana Prince and reports to the Pentagon where she meets General Darnell for a special solar-powered city summit. Following the meeting, Darnell asks Diana out on a date, to which she reluctantly agrees.
Meanwhile, Debbi Domaine goes to the North Shore mansion of her aunt, Priscilla Rich. Priscilla is dying and begins raving about her secret past. Before she can reveal too much information, she passes away. Debbi reels backward, falling into a walk-in closet. Inside the closet is the original costume of the villainess known as the Cheetah.
Suddenly, an agent of Kobra breaks into the mansion and abducts Deborah. He brings her back to a secret, underground laboratory where Kobra conducts bizarre experiments on her. Forcing her to endure psychedelic visions of intense violence, he brainwashes Debbi into becoming his personal super-agent – the new Cheetah.

Later, they learn that Harry Sims has publicly announced the reversal of his stance regarding super-heroes. Power Girl is suspicious of Sims' motives and wants to learn why he has suddenly changed his attitude.
