QUOTE: "POWERGIRL TO HAVE FLASH'S BABY!" A sensational headline from the National Midnight

SUMMARY:  Wally West finds himself in hot water with Connie Noleski after a tabloid newspaper prints a sensational article claiming the fastest man alive is having a secret affair with Powergirl. The young hero denies the allegations but his girlfriend is nevertheless furious. As the Chunk attempts to comfort Connie he comes to realize that the true source of her recent anguish is the dawning realization that she's no longer in love with Wally. Meanwhile, Leonora MacDonald, a woman who has been spending much time with Mason Trollbridge, is receiving threatening letters signed by a mysterious supervillain calling himself the Last Resort. Wally and Mason visit the MacDonald mansion to offer some needed protection. An outraged Powergirl tracks the Flash there and confronts him, blaming the scarlet speedster for this unwanted publicity. Unfortunately, even two superheroes aren't able to apprehend the invisible Last Resort when he chooses to strike!
