Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Black Magic of Supergirl!"

While patrolling in India, Supergirl sees a fakir die when he is struck by a cobra. With his dying breath, Abdul, the fakir, bequeaths to Supergirl a small casket containing the Satan Ring, and a scroll. The last part of the scroll is torn off, revealing that the ring will grant wishes, but the third wish will turn the wisher into a demon--with horns such as she finds on Abdul.

Supergirl, in the days to come, uses the Satan Ring's magical powers to save Superman from Kryptonite (a pair of skeletal hands hurl it into the sea), to save an innocent man from the electric chair (a skeletal hand pulls down the knife switch while a ghostly figure sits in the chair, short-circuiting it), and, though she fears the third wish, to save her father's life during an operation (the skeletal hands guide the surgeon). As a result, Supergirl gains horns on her head, and, despite her resistance, does evil. At one point, she makes a witch's brew that produces ghostly hands to blind Superman.

However, she visits India again, and sees that Abdul is alive, after having been cleansed by fire intended to cremate him. Supergirl recovers the last of the scroll, which says the curse can be lifted by fire. Not even the heat of the sun works on her, but Supergirl comes across the Fire Falls of Krypton, hurled intact into space. She bathes herself in its Kryptonite-tinged flames, and is cured.
