Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Screamin' Demon"

Supergirl is called to Midvale by her father and is attacked by a Superboy robot, but it stiffens and falls only seconds later. She takes it back to Snapper Carr at S.T.A.R. Labs, who has been trying to find a way to make Superman robots pollutant-resistant. Supergirl leaves, but neither of them are aware that the robot has been possessed by the spirit of someone who hates Supergirl but is right now stuck in the robot.

Meanwhile on New Athens Experimental School, reformed delinquent Paul French is attempting to develop a self-thinking transistorized brain in the robotics lab. Paul turns his device on and it emits a deafening screech.

Moments earlier, Supergirl lands on the campus and changes to Linda Danvers, as she has been invited to attend an extra-sensory perception test. The students are testing a "bio-feedback mental radio" device which lets their bearer hear and feel other people's thoughts and feelings. Right then the group hears a terrible scream. Linda changes clothes and comes face-to-face with a giant robot. Kara tries to fight it off, but the robot somehow is immune to her powers. Kara tries to run after it, but her legs hurt and the robot makes its escape.

Later, the robot robs a bank using Supergirl's powers, and Supergirl feels pain every time he uses one. Kara realizes her enemy is tapping into her powers. The robot ensured that she couldn't use a stolen power without feeling pain, but bio-feedback also ensures she feels pain every time it uses her powers. Supergirl deduces bio-feedback will hurt the robot, too, so she ignores her own pain and lifts several tons of rubble.

The robot collapses, and Supergirl is back to normal. Supergirl then discovers that robot is actually an armor suit worn by Paul French. Paul feels dizzy and Supergirl confirms he is truthful when he claims he can't remember anything. Supergirl intercedes with the authorities to get Paul off the hook. Later, Paul theorizes his artificial brain's vibrations affected his own head and thanks Supergirl for giving him another chance.
