Quote1 You. In fact, I don't just look like you. I AM you. Identical. Well except that I'm better. I'm like, the upgrade, y'know? Linda-- Version B. Or Belinda. Whatever. Quote2
-- Belinda Zee src

Belinda Zee is a Supergirl's duplicate created accidentally when Linda Lee was making experiments with different varieties of Kryptonite. She regards herself as a Linda Version B -or Belinda-, and being the opposite to Linda Lee -who wants people to like her-, she wants to people to hate Linda. Belinda starts out a bullying campaign to ostracize Linda. Nevertheless her efforts are only partially successful, if annoying: she can't turn Linda's only friend against her and can't bring the Girl of Steel down. And the happier Linda is, the sadder she gets.

Belinda feels totally backwards: she is popular but miserable. And she is only happy when she does awful things. Finally she goes to the Principal for counseling, but the man encourages her to embrace her spite and jealousy and hands over a glowing medallion to her which confers new powers upon Belinda.

Belinda flies around the school grounds turning students into Bizarro-like creatures. When Supergirl and her future self confront her, Belinda throws a tantrum, calls herself Superior Girl and after causing even more havoc, steals Supergirl space communicator. Unexpectedly, Belinda switches the device on and it absorbs her emotions, turning her into a kind of glassy living statue able to project her thoughts (mostly insults). Then Mister Mxyzptlk reveals she was his pawn: he was collecting her emotions as part of his plan to become even more powerful.

Once Supergirl has banished Mxyzptlk, she takes Belinda to a hospital where the girl starts a slow recovery.
