- My mother sent me on a mission to Earth to find my father's killer. The man with the Kryptonite touch, Reactron. I'm supposed to be in Metropolis right now, tracking him down. Instead, a woman I barely know is doing her best to stop me and send me home. I'm Supergirl. This is my life.

Synopsis for "Who Is Superwoman? (Part II of VI) - Clashes"
Superwoman and Supergirl fight one another in the skies above the Earth. Superwoman wants Kara to return to New Krypton and repeatedly tells her that she's not safe on Earth. Both women drop into the sea while dueling, but Superwoman prevails at the end. Before she can take Kara back to New Krypton, she receives a communiqué from General Sam Lane instructing her to retrieve a "stray dog". Reluctantly, Superwoman drops Kara into the ocean and flies off.
In Metropolis, Inspector Mike Henderson is present at the Metropolis City Hospital, where a surgical team is attempting to remove the armor from the deceased Agent Liberty and downloading its internal computer's memory files. All of sudden, Lucy Lane bursts into the place, demanding Agent Liberty's corpse to be turned over to the USA army. Before she leaves, Henderson remarks he has met her sister and it's good to see their father raised at least one of his daughters to have some manners. Lucy heads off, but neither she nor Henderson realize the hospital's computers have already downloaded Agent Liberty's suit's memory files.
At the Daily Planet, Cat Grant is typing up another anti-Supergirl piece when she receives a surprise package in the mail. Addressed from her "tiniest fan", the contents of the package include an ugly, ratty Supergirl doll. Annoyed, Cat throws it away.
Meanwhile, Reactron is about to murder his ex-girlfriend Lori Murphy in revenge for breaking up with him. All of sudden Superwoman bursts into the apartment and states she is to retrieve him per General Lane's orders. Reactron is grateful for her getting him out of Kandor, but he is unwilling to return yet. Superwoman grabs Reactron by the throat and reiterates it was an order, not a request. Reactron blasts Superwoman with Gold Kryptonite radiation, but to his surprise it appears to have no effect. Superwoman smiles and points out she never claimed to be a Kryptonian.
