Synopsis

Supergirl and Wonder Woman are taking down a band of bank robbers together. Supergirl tells Wonder Woman that she is going to find a cure for cancer in order to save the life of a five-year-old boy. Wonder Woman reiterates that curing cancer is beyond their powers and she shouldn’t have promised that boy to cure him. She is determined to end war herself but she never promised to achieve her goal. Supergirl still wonders if they aren’t doing it wrong fighting criminals and saving dozens instead of saving everyone.

After sifting through some of the JLA’s files, she decides to contact Mitchell Shelley — the Resurrection Man. She finds him in Montana and inquires as to whether his ability to return from the dead could yield the cure that she seeks. Shelley admires her determination, but otherwise thinks that she is on fool’s journey. Regardless, he gets roped into her scheme and together they seek out Professor Alphonse Luzano, the criminal scientist whose work with Tektites yielded a radical change in Shelley’s physiology.

Supergirl breaks into the Garrett Federal Pentitentiary in Pendroy, Montana and frees Luzano. She promises the guards that she will bring him back when she is done with him.

News of the prison breakout quickly reaches the Daily Planet. Upon learning of Supergirl’s involvement in the prison break, Clark readies himself for yet another encounter with his overeager cousin.
