    Cat Grant and Kara go to see Toyman in Arkham about some children who went missing in Metropolis. Cat brings out a Supergirl doll she was sent a long time ago, which arrived the same day one of the kids went missing. She then received two other robotic dolls on the days two other children went missing. As Toyman examines one of the robotic dolls, it recognizes his voice, activates and stabs him. They take him to the hospital and try to figure out who sent the dolls to Cat, and Cat reveals she got Supergirl to help her by almost blackmailing Lana over her relationship with Supergirl. Fed up with Cat's incessant griping, Kara leaves. As Kara fights Riot she talks to Lana, who explains Cat's backstory and how her son Adam died. Cat goes to visit Adam's grave, and one of the toy robots is watching her. When she gets home her door is open and she's attacked by another one of them, which she tases and puts down only to discover it was one of the missing children in disguise.

  • Supergirl #60 (March)
    Nick Spencer & James Peaty, Bernard Chang, Bernard Chang
    At Harvard University, two men debate the merits of invading forces. One of them thinks superheroes fighting off alien invasions is stopping the next great progress. In Metropolis, Lois meets with Catherine Devereux from Cadmus. Kara saves someone falling off a building, who did it so she would catch him and he could ask for her phone number. Back at Harvard, one of the guys has made an application called Flyover, for tracking superhero sightings. Turns out the guy Kara saved uploaded his sighting to the app, leading Parasite, Kryptonite Man, Silver Banshee and Metallo to her. Catherine gives Lois info on Cadmus that shocks her. Perry White wants some local news, when Lois busts in and shouts about Cadmus experimenting with Kryptonian DNA. The guy behind Flyover is revealed to be Alex, who has a way of "getting inside your head". Alex thinks superheros are a threat to humanity, and Supergirl is more of a threat than Superman because she's the future. One of his friends thinks he's talking about killing Supergirl, and he says he's thinking bigger. He then reveals that he knows intimate details about all of his friends and uses it to blackmail them into silence. Catherine finds her son, presumably dead, and there's a note from Alex that says "It's not nice to talk out of class. Sorry for your loss."

Cadmus has apparently made a rogue metahuman with Kryptonian DNA and Lois wants Kara's help figuring out what's going on. Lois gives her a smartphone so that she can track the villains. In his lab, Alex has located Robin and Blue Beetle. Kara uses the FlyOver app and sees Robin battling Mr. Freeze and Clayface, and zooms off to help him.

Supergirl returns to Blue Beetle and Robin, they investigate the emptied Harvard, locate Miss Martian and Kara goes barging in.

    James Peaty, Bernard Chang, Bernard Chang
    At the hospital, Lois goes to see Catherine. Kara wakes up and tries to go after Alex and gets knocked out of the sky. Father is back online.

Catherine tells Lois she helped Alex get free because he promised to cure her son. Kara rips a sunstone out of one of the drones. Catherine reveals Alex was grown in a Cadmus lab, raised by the Father program, and she and he developed a bond, and then her eyes start glowing purple revealing that Alex is controlling her. Kara jams the sunstone into her phone and activates the FlyOver app, which somehow deactivates Alex's friends who were really drones. Alex shows up and beats up Kara with the power of his mind, and reveals he's not all Kryptonian but has just a little Kryptonian DNA in him and the rest of him was cloned from Dubbilex.

  • Supergirl #64 (July)
    James Peaty, Bernard Chang, Bernard Chang
    Blue Beetle and Robin attack Kara and weaken her. Alex leaves to take care of Lois who is talking with Catherine at the hospital, telling Miss Martian to extract from Kara's mind the information he needs on Superman. At the hospital, Catherine is sedated and Lois leaves to write her story. Father seems to think Alex is being overly emotional due to the "near depletion" of his Kryptonian solar cells. This angers Alex, who destroys Father. Kara arrives, punches Alex, and uses super-breath to instantly incapacitate Blue Beetle and Robin. Alex tries to control Kara's mind, but fails due to Miss Martian not being mind-controlled at all. After she reveals to Alex how she did it, Kara punches him again and puts him down for the count. Kara talks to Lois and reveals Alex's control over Catherine has been broken, but she can't write her story on Cadmus because they struck a deal with the "authorities" to rehabilitate Alex in exchange for keeping their involvement out of the press. The experience has left Kara feeling she's ready to step up if anything ever happened to Superman, and then she flies off to save a jet.
