Synopsis for "Sixty Seconds"
Power Girl is beating up a squad of Unimates when she sees a message in the sky specifically addressed to her: Da Bomb is bringing the Leaning Tower of Pisa down together with everyone inside; the Dogpound duo is holding Cyclone hostage in a warehouse in São Paulo; and Typhoon is threatening a Filipino girl's life. She has sixty seconds to choose whom she wants to save.
Annoyed at being challenged by some super-villain, Power Girl takes off. She refuses to play their game, though, so first of all she throws a giant rock into the Pacific Ocean and then she heads to rescue Cyclone. Quickly and easily, Kara takes Anubis and Devil Dog down, tells Cyclone get to the Filipino girl's location in twenty-five seconds, mutters one word in a camera recording her actions and heads towards Pisa.
As she flies her way to Europe, her challenger explains his goals to his underlyings: he is testing heroes in order to be able to predict their behavioral patterns. In this manner he will be capable of calculating the odds of which hero will show up to stop which crimes and selling insurance to any criminal who can afford it.
Power Girl reaches Pisa, knocks Da bomb down, stops the Tower from falling down, mutters another word in another camera and dashes out.
As she flies across Asia, her challenger is shocked. He did not actually expect her to try and save everyone. Although Power Girl still has eighteen seconds left, he orders Typhoon to kill the little girl. Typhoon is about to do so when he is slammed by a tsunami caused by the giant rock thrown by Power Girl earlier. Kara arrives, rescue the little girl and fishes a defeated Typhoon out of the wave. Cyclone turns up right then, and both heroines break the tsunami apart. Power Girl locates another camera, states another word and smiles.
As Power Girl and Cyclone soar across the ocean, Kara explains Maxine she was triangulating. She can hear her voice coming out of the speakers at the other end and use it to fix their position. Power Girl barges into the place and finds it was the Calculator who was behind her test, but he is watching from a safe place.
Irritated, Power Girl melts his equipment into a heap and starts interrogating one of his underlyings. Beforehand, she tells him to not leave anything out. She's got all the time in the world.
