Synopsis for Supergirl: "We Interrupt This Program...!"

While Linda Danvers is being interviewed on TV by Donny Hughes, technological whiz Victor Marvin Block overrides their signal and breaks into their program. Block claims that he was wrongly sent to prison for 20 years, and that he is getting revenge on his twelve jurors. Four of them have already died. Block says that he will kill the remaining eight with miniature explosives planted on their person. Linda secretly switches to Supergirl, locates the eight remaining jurors with her super-vision, takes the bombs from them, swallows them so that they will explode harmlessly in her body, and arrests Block. All of this has taken place in only two minutes, so she is able to return to the television studio and continue her interview with Donny Hughes.
