Synopsis
Supergirl reviews her origin, then meets up with Stargirl, who is watching the Justice Society of America battle Solomon Grundy. Power Girl shows up to help, and Supergirl intervenes to help her, dispatching Grundy. When they shake hands, Power Girl goes crazy and attacks Supergirl. Green Lantern intervenes in the fight, and isolates them. Apparently "allergic" to Supergirl, Power Girl meets her later, but refuses to be her friend for now. Desiring some peer support, Supergirl goes to seek Superboy at the Kent farm, but he confronts her instead.
