Synopsis for "Sidekicked"
Supergirl and Robin meet for lunch in Gotham and reminisce about the first time they worked together.
While Batman and Superman are called off to the Watchtower on JLA business, Batman instructs Robin to give Supergirl a crash course in what they do. Suddenly, they receive a priority call from the Gotham Police Department about a inmate riot and hostage situation at Arkaham Asylum. Once there, Commissioner Gordon briefs them on the situation. Supergirl takes the lead, unaware of what she is up against. First up is the Joker, who is performing an autopsy on a hostage. Supergirl reacts in horror and threatens to kills him when Robin intervenes. Supergirl takes Joker to the cops and then joins Robin on a room by room search.
Next up, a tea party with Two Face, Scarecrow, Clayface and Mad Hatter. Then an encounter in the arboretum with Killer Croc and Poison Ivy. Last on the list is Mr. Zsasz, whose cell is littered with victims and has one more hostage tied to a chair. He taunts Supergirl, daring her to stop him when Robin interrupts and takes down Zsasz. Like Supergirl with the Joker, this almost throws Robin over the edge. He is restrained by Supergirl.
The scene then flashes back to the present as both agree that they make a good team.
