Synopsis

Jimmy visits Superman's Fortress of Solitude and accompanies him on a mission to Kandor to help Dev-Re, but they bring along an uninvited guest. Dev-Re, who has discovered Superman and Jimmy's dual identities as Nightwing and Flamebird, asks the pair to find his daughter Sarna, who has fallen in with a group of violent radicals. But the space-germ that followed them into the bottled city spreads a plague throughout Kandor, causing the populace to attack the heroes, which allows Sarna to knock out Jimmy. Jimmy tricks Sarna into using the explosives her group has amassed to blow off the top of the bottle, instantly making the Kandorians invulnerable and reversing the effects of the plague.
