Synopsis for "Crucible, Part 4"
Kara and Maxima argue about Kon and it looks like they may come to blows at any time. Kara tells she isn't really sure what Crucible is about, and Maxima replies Crucible is exactly what it appears to be, she trusts Preceptor Amata, and reminds Kara that Kryptonians hate clones. When Kon points out how Kara herself treated him in the past, Kara replies she knows better now.
Kara doesn't want to give in but Kon settles the argument when he agrees to go with Maxima to Crucible, wondering whether that place will provide the answers he's looking for. Maxima teleports away, leaving Kara in charge of protecting Comet while he heals.
In Crucible, Amata is regretting that she agreed to acquire Superboy, which put several students in harm's way, when she is attacked by Korstus. He intends to seize control of Crucible and use it to raise his own army. And Roho and his men are working for Korstus.
Meanwhile, Kara brings Comet to Michael's apartment, and after expressing her gratitude for his help, she uses a teleporting device to head back to Crucible. There, she finds the place completely changed: the school is in shutdown, with defense robots patrolling the deserted halls and enforcing curfews.
As soon as she arrives, Kara is attacked by drones and then by Roho. As she battles, Korstus shows up and shuts down her powers with a failsafe switch (something Crucible has built into every student). Then he reveals his plans: he wants to turn Crucible into his own private army. In order to achieve that goal, he intends to clone Superboy.
