Synopsis for Supergirl: "Supergirl's Duel with Dr. Supernatural"

On the Purple Planet, Supergirl encounters a large group of super-heroes from different planets held caged prisoners by Drang the Destroyer. When she has an audience with Drang, she finds that he is composed of pure magic energy, but the expenditure of his power weakens him and he must absorb more necromantic force from evil deeds to replace it.

Supergirl attempts to outwit him, and Drang restores her powers, only within range of the Purple Planet, so that he may deceive her into using her powers for evil. Despite her best efforts, he does just that. With Supergirl held prisoner on the planet by a force-field, and the other heroes caged, Drang tells her that he intends to go ahead with his master plan.

Notes

  • In the second story, Drang the Destoryer is watching the activities of Superman in the first story, The Strange 'S' Spell on Superman.
  • In The Strange 'S' Spell on Superman, he refers to previous effects of Red Kryptonite which appeared in Adventure Comics #270 and Action Comics #296

Trivia

  • Drang the Destroyer manipulates Supergirl by using a variation on the Opposite Day paradox. He convinces her that in the Negative Zone her good actions produced evil energy, but when she performs evil actions, Drang is still strengthened - since he announced the negative zone's existence in the negative zone.
