Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Case of the Cape Caper"

As trying to stop some bak robbers, Supergirl discovers that someone has switched her cape with a fake. Annoyed, she takes off her false cape and heads off.

Her actions are being observed by a man named Wells. He used to be a scientist until he got tired of earning money legally and started working for Florida mob boss Jason Janson as a heist planner. One month earlier he saw Supergirl stretching her cape out to shield people from an oil fire and realized such an amazingly elastic and indestructible fabric was worth a fortune. Wells spent several months taking pictures from her cape in order to make a realistic facsimile, and then he arranged a robbery in such a way that Supergirl needed to take off her cape long enough for him making the switch. Soon enough, though, he discovered upon analysis of the cape that he couldn't duplicate the fabric. He considered to ditch the clothing before Supergirl finds him, but he has come up with another idea to make money off of it.

Meanwhile, Linda Danvers has gone back home to replace her clothes and heads towards her workplace. However, she cannot focus on her job due to her missing cape and decides she needs to get her trouble solved as soon as possible.

While, Wells wraps himself up in Supergirl's cape and barges into his boss' office building in an aggressive way that makes Janson's security and bodyguards shoot him, but their bullets bounce off Supergirl's cape. Wells wants to sell the cape for a million dollars and Janson pretends to agree, but as soon as the money has exchanged hands he wraps the cloak around himself and guns Wells down.

However, the sound of gunshots has drawn Supergirl and she bursts through the wall. Janson foresaw a confrontation, and he threatens to trigger off a remote-controlled bomb beneath Santa Augusta Police Headwuarters with a device on his suit if she attempts to stop him from leaving. Supergirl does it anyway and he presses the trigger in revenge as she takes him away. Janson is shocked, though, when he sees the police station is still standing.

Supergirl turns him over to the police and gets her cape back. Not wanting to explain to Janson it was her invulnerable cape which blocked the trigger signal, Supergirl heads back to his hideout to capture his men.
