Synopsis for Supergirl: "Strangers at the Heart's Core!"

Linda Danvers is having a nightmare where both her biological and adoptive parents are fighting over her. Linda is abruptly awoken by a phone call from Edna Danvers, warning that she should look forward to a surprise later that day.

Later, Linda is working in her office when she is visited by Fred and Edna Danvers, who look like and believe to be Zor-El and Allura. Disturbed, Linda drives them to her apartment, where she sees them gradually transforming into her Kryptonian parents.

Right then, Lesla-Lar invades Supergirl's mind, declaring her mind survived when the Phantom Zoners disintegrated her body,[1] and she became a being of pure energy. Then Lesla reveals she influenced most of enemies fought by Supergirl since her arrival in Santa Augusta into attacking her before entering her brain. Kara then learns Lesla has deluded herself into believing they are twin sisters, and after stealing her birth parents' memories and turning the Danvers into them, she intends to take over Kara's body and demand to know why she was abandoned.

Supergirl and Lesla-Lar fight, but Lesla prevails and throws Kara's spirit out of her body. Lesla then tries to pose as Kara, but the Danvers -still turned into Kara's blood parents- realize right away she's an impostor. Lesla's turmoil lets Kara reenters her body. Both women fight again, and Supergirl punches Lesla's astral form into oblivion.

Linda has gotten her body back and her adoptive parents are back to normal and recalling nothing since they were waiting in Dean Lyman's office to surprise Kara. Before telling them about her latest battle, Linda can't help but thank Lesla-Lar for unintentionally giving her a few moments with her other parents.

Notes

  • This book was first published on December 11, 1980.
  • The Extractor appeared in Superman Family #203.

Trivia

  • Although Lesla-Lar was Supergirl's first enemy who had been plaguing her since Action Comics #279, this issue features their first -and only- physical confrontation.
  • Lesla-Lar not only impersonated Supergirl in the The Unknown Supergirl story arc but also Lena Thorul.[2]
  • Supergirl is right on that Lesla-Lar can't possibly be her sister. Lesla was an adult woman living in Kandor when Brainiac stole the city prior to Krypton's explosion. Kara's parents met each other in Argo City after Krypton's destruction and had Kara long after their planet's death.
  • Lola broke into a "M*A*S*H" rerun on UBC-TV to report her sham scoop.
