The real Nightwing and Flamebird arrive and Flamebird starts beating "Kal-El", as instructed by a flashback of her father. Nightwing is unable to stop her. Flamebird hears a voice from from "Kal-El's" mother, Saturn Queen, telling her to unmask and kiss "Kal-El".

Indexer Notes

Story continued from the previous issue, and continues in next issue. Supergirl's Kryptonian tattoo translates to "Hope". The Kryptonian text on the sign on page 1 is translated as follows: "KNEEL", and on page 3 as "CAT AT JAC'S" (probably supposed to say "EAT AT JOE'S"), and on page 10 as "SAVE YOURSELVES"
