Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Duel Between Superwoman and Superboy"

In this imaginary story, Superboy tricked Superwoman into thinking his powers have been permanently removed by Gold Kryptonite, and schemes to get adopted from the Midvale Orphanage. When a set of scientist parents chose other children for adoption, Superboy sabotages each of them until he is chosen. In his new home, Kal set to work building his lab. Superwoman soon discovers that Superboy still has his powers and is experimenting with the Phantom Zone.

Out of necessity Superwoman reveals her secret identity to Jimmy Olsen and together they prepare a hoax. Jimmy disguises himself as delinquent Phantom Zone prisoner Van-Dal, while Superwoman plays Tir-An, his mother. They trick Superboy into releasing them from the Phantom Zone (in an elaborate illusion) and then expose him to Red Kryptonite which temporarily removes his powers. Without powers, Superboy stumbles upon some Gold Kryptonite which removes his power permanently. Superwoman then hypnotizes him into forgetting his past.
