Synopsis for Supergirl: "All Men Are But Slaves"

Mr. Drew, Johnny's father, is abducted into a magic-based dimension where women rule men. Johnny Drew, investigating with Linda Danvers, finds a page with a magic spell on it which his father had used to enter that dimension earlier. When they recite the spell, both Johnny and Linda (as Supergirl) enter that dimension.

Supergirl fights the female soldiers of the other world and a giant reptilian monster they set on her until their queen calls a halt to hostilities. Narkrana, the queen's police commissioner, gets called on the carpet for abducting Mr. Drew and enslaving him and Johnny. The women of this world have enslaved their men, and thus avoided pollution and wars, but they have strict laws against enslaving other-dimensionals.

Supergirl protests that nobody should be enslaved, but they disregard her and send all three back to their own dimension. The page with the mystic spell is magically burned so that they cannot return to the women's world.
