Synopsis for Supergirl: "Brainiac's Blitz!"

This story is reprinted from Action Comics #339.

Superman meets up with Supergirl to ask her to protect Earth as the JLA is off-world. Linda agrees, although later she feels there's danger brewing.

At the same time, Brainiac has just built new weapons to destroy Superman with, and heads off to Earth.

On Stanhope College, Linda Danvers hears about a flying saucer circling over Metropolis and hurries to her cousin's city. She recognizes Brainiac's ship, but she soon learns she can't smash through its force-shield. Supergirl engages him anyway, and Brainiac grows frustrated with having to keep Supergirl at bay while he searches for Superman.

Finally, Brainiac decides to use on Supergirl the trap he was saving for her cousin. Brainiac's ship's rays stun Supergirl and then he traps her in a Kryptonite's cage. As his ship bathes the cage in Omicron rays that increase the radiation's power, Supergirl's cell emits Kryptonite gas.

Suddenly, Brainiac's ship alerts that Superman is coming. Not wanting to give Superman time to save Supergirl, he expands his ship's force shield and disintegrates the cage. His ship's weapons have run out of energy, though, so Brainiac decides to retreat for the time being.

Right then, Supergirl bursts through Brainiac's ship's walls. Supergirl reveals that, being smaller than Superman, she slipped between the cage bars. She intends to take Brainiac back to prison, but he teleports away. Frustrated, Supergirl hurls his ship straight into the Sun. Kara is still sorry for allowing Brainiac to get away, but Kal praises her when he returns.
