Synopsis for "Celebration!"

Supergirl finds her powers failing her, and soon is engaged in a battle with a clone of the Parasite, who steals her powers and imprisons her in a cell with four minutes of air left. But Supergirl cuts free of her cell with a comb made of Kryptonian metal, confronts the Parasite clone, who has divested himself of his stolen powers (and, unwittingly, restored them to Supergirl), and watches her foe collapse into protoplasmic slime when his short life-span runs out. Since the Parasite had been defeated and neutralized by Superman before the clone's power- transmission was effected, the original Parasite was unable to receive Supergirl's powers. Later, Superman escorts her to a surprise ceremony commemorating the anniversary of her arrival on Earth. The Justice League of America and Teen Titans are on hand for the occasion, and a statue of Supergirl is erected over the spot where she landed on Earth in her rocket so many years ago. Thanks to Hawkman's Thanagarian technology, the statue floats in a fixed position above the ground.
