Synopsis for "Candor, Part I of III"
Ultraman has taken over the Bottle City of Kandor II -named after the original Kryptonian Kandor-, populated by aliens of varying worlds. The ruling class is made up for those who Ultraman deems "Kryptonians" and the lower class for everyone else. Only the heroes Flamebird and Nightwing oppose Ultraman's brutal dictatorship.
Kara Zor-El is leaving a tatto parlor when she's ambushed by three aliens. They insinuate they intend to rape her, and the tallest grabs her by her neck. Feeling no fear, Kara warns them against picking a fight with her, but they don't want to listen. Nightwing turns up to talk them down but they don't want listen to her either, and Kara has run out of patience. Kara beats the three of them up and is about to blast one of them down when Nightwing flies in and takes her to the top of a building.
Nightwing takes her mask off, revealing to be Kara Zor-L, and tells her counterpart if she craves for a fight so badly she can fight her. Supergirl glares for a moment but then she relents, looks away and apologises. She mutters she wasn't really going to kill those thugs, she just lost her temper because she's attacked and insulted by the very people she's trying to save. Power Girl is worried about Supergirl's snappy mood she's been in of late, and thinks she should take her younger self home, but Supergirl doesn't want to leave, even though she's been there for one month. She doesn't fit in the outside world and she thinks she can find in Kandor a lead to Argo City. Power Girl tells she'll help Kara find the way back Argo when their mission is over.
Later, Flamebird and Nightwing break several aliens free. Unfortunately Flamebird is angry at Ultraman and his followers sullying her cousin's name and her family emblem, and her anger makes her fight sloppily; a soldier manages to tear her costume's back during the brawl and sees her tatto written on Kryptonese.
Ultraman later arrives and is informed about Flamebird's tattoo. Ultraman deduces both heroes are Kryptonians, something nobody can know about. Ultraman quickly kills all of his followers who took part in the fight and prepares to hunt Flamebird and Nightwing down.
