Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Brain-Stealers!"

Supergirl learns from King Cerebron, a disembodied brain, that his race was a conquering, warlike people that were forced to abandon their bodies when a race of fish-people retaliated with a "plague-mist" that was deadly to human life. Their quest has been to find an antidote.

Supergirl, though held prisoner by threat of the Kryptonite, refuses to solve their problems. However, they trick her into using her super-powers, duplicate them, and infuse them (including invulnerability) into Queen Neolla, who has been kept in suspended animation up to this time.

King Cerebron hopes that his reanimated wife, Neolla, will rid them of the plague-mist and help them conquer other worlds. But she has absorbed Supergirl's heroic nature, causing her to free Supergirl from the Kryptonite trap. As Supergirl leaves, Neolla tells her that she will only work on an antidote to the plague-mist when Cerebron and his people foreswear their dreams of conquest.
