Synopsis for "Girl Power!"
Power Girl has been invited to give a speech in the first Annual Power Girl Convention. Later, as she is signing autographs, a woman named Rana Arenta skips the queue and claims she's doing a master thesis on superpowered women. She asks Power Girl to verify her data that states she is the most powerful, but Power Girl declines. Rana leaves in a huff and Power Girl listens to a fan named Marnie accompanied by her younger sister Margot and friend Kira.
All of sudden, all attendants start floating. Rana turns up again, wearing a jetpack, and warns they can't leave the building. Power Girl checks the building has been beamed out of the planet by an alien ship. Rana then gets several magic golems seize Power Girl.
Rana explains she was born in a homeworld called Arenta that has been ruled by the overlords of Azaar for over one hundred years. Her people needs a hero, so Rana stole a spaceship, looked for a world protected by powerful heroes and searched the mightiest one. Power Girl points out she could have asked the JLA for help, but Rana argues her world needs a hero who will stick around. Power Girl replies she will not make anything under coercion, but Rana has brought a power-copying machine along with her.
As Power Girl is shoved into the device and Rana starts out the replication process, Marnie convinces Margot and Kira to help Power Girl out. As Margot and Kira keep the golems distracted, Marnie opens the capsule holding Power Girl.
Power Girl faces Rana, but she has already copied her powers. As they battle, Power Girl states Rana doesn't want to be a hero but only having powers. If she truly cared about her people she would have gone about helping them in a completely different way. Rana believes she can beat Power Girl, but the three cosplayers have used the replicator machine on themselves and help Power Girl defeat Rana.
Two weeks later, Power Girl drops by Metropolis to check on the three girls. Marnie and Kira assure the S.T.A.R. Labs' scientists have completely reversed the process. Power Girl warns them about how hard is the hero life, but she expresses her gratitude again before flying off.
Marnie and Kira go for a walk across the park, without realizing Margot has begun to float again behind them.
