Kara-Zor-El, also known as Supergirl and Kara Danvers, is a Kryptonian superhero based in New York City and later Ysmault and National City. She is the cousin of Superman and his successor after his death, member of the Justice League and the Department of Extranormal Operations.

The Last Daughter of Krypton

Kara Zor-El's pod from Krypton crash landed in Russia. She stumbled from her craft only to be suddenly surrounded by gigantic armed robots who began trying to subdue her. In an amazing display of power she showed off her strength, speed, durability, senses, heat vision, and sonic scream until she was finally overcome by the robots and her own confusion of being on a distant unknown planet. With a blaster pointed to the back of her head she was finally saved by nothing less than a single word from Superman.[1]

Confused by her current situation and her new powers, Kara angrily demanded to know why Superman was wearing her family's crest. When Superman identified himself as her cousin Kal-El, Kara became enraged, thinking he was an impostor; in her mind she was holding baby Kal-El only the day before. Kara attacked Superman, only to become scared by her own new abilities, such as x-ray vision and flight. The two exchanged blows all the way from Siberia to the Great Wall of China. After punching Superman through the Great Wall, Kara realized her fight was endangering the people nearby and agreed to stop fighting and listen to Superman.[2]

When Kara flied back to Siberia to search for the capsule, she was invited by Symon Tycho to his space station, where he tested her abilities and limits. Finally, he watched her being weakened by green Kryptonite and captured her in a tank near from a chunk of green Kryptonite.[3]

However, an employee of Tycho helped Kara break out. Still not in the full control over her powers, Kara accidentally seemed to destroy the whole space-station.

However, Kara managed to save a Sunstone that Tycho stole from her pod. Unfortunately, it was too damaged to provide answers. Kara despaired of finding answers to her predicament and wondered if her new powers would allow her to fly back Krypton.[4]

Kara left Earth, heading for her home-world. On the way, the sunstone helped her find a spatial portal which took her back to her hometown Argo City, now a deserted city protected by a bubble shield and orbiting a blue star. Exploring the ruins, Kara finally confirmed that Krypton was gone and her family and friends dead. Overwhelmed by grief and fury, she cried out and started to tear the city up. Her rampage was stopped by a mysterious woman named Reign, who claimed to be a worldkiller (a superpowerful, sentient biological Kryptonian weapon). They fought but Reign defeated her easily, pinning her to a wall and leaving, challenging Kara to follow her back to Earth.[5]

Emboldened by her parents' memories, and summoning all the strength she had left, Kara managed to break free and fly back to Earth, in where Reign and three more Worldkillers (Flower of Heaven, Perrilus, and Deimax) were leveling New York.[6]

After a tough, exhausting battle Kara won against all odds, beating the worldkillers back. Before leaving, though, Reign warned Kara that she would return one day... and her father, Zor-El, made five Worldkillers originally, not just four.[7]

Meeting Silver Banshee and Superboy

Right after the battle Kara met Siobhan Smythe, an Irish girl with a gift for language and music. Both girls befriended each other quickly, and Siobhan offered to help Kara, leaving her staying in her apartment for a while until her Kryptonian friend was ready to face her new world.

Siobhan decided to bring Kara to listen to music at a club. While at the club, both girls were attacked by Siobhan's father, a villain known as Black Banshee. Being a magic creature, Black Banshee hurt Kara, forcing Siobhan to transform into Silver Banshee in order to stop him.[8]

Kara and Siobhan faced the Black Banshee together, but Kara had no option but letting the Banshee absorbing her in order to fight him.[9] Supergirl managed to defeat Black Banshee and rescued Thomas, Siobhan's big brother who had been previously absorbed by Black Banshee.[10]

A while later Kara met Superboy when she was taking some time by herself. They talked, but when she learnt about him being a clone, she attacked, believing him to be evil. However she stopped her attack when she realized that Superboy didn't know that Kryptonian clones were mindless killing machines. Seeing Superboy wasn't evil, Kara protected him from a police attack and opted to leave him alone, going to confront Kal about Kon.[11]

Upon arriving on Metropolis, Kara had to battle a Superman duplicate to protect the city. Kara fought valiantly, but the fake Superman gained the upper hand and beat Kara up. Their battle got interrupted when the real Superman showed up and managed to defeat the imposter. Kara congratulated her cousin and questioned him about Superboy, but Kal explained he didn't know anything about Superboy.[12]

Sanctuary

While having lunch with Tom Smythe at a cafe, Kara was attacked by a humanoid blob. She fought and won, but the fact that thing was able to find her when she was dressed in plain clothes worried her. Kara left Siobhan and Tom for their own safety and to find out who was attacking her.[13]

Kara brought the remains of her attacker to Kal-El, and using the technology in his Fortress of Solitude, they tracked the signal that was controlling the nano-machine man back to its source, miles beneath the ocean. Superman offered his assistance, but Kara still didn't fully trust him, and after turning down his offer to help yet again, she left to find whoever was attacking her.[14]

Exploring the ocean floor, Kara found a Kryptonian sanctuary, created by a fragment of her pod. She also found out Simon Tycho had invaded her Sanctuary of Solitude and was the one was behind the attacks. Kara battled him and locked him away in a crystal prison, claiming her underwater base.[15]

H'el on Earth

Main article: H'el on Earth

In order to achieve his plan to bring Krypton back, H'el tricked Kara into helping him, promising to save Krypton and claiming that Earth would not suffer. Kara helped him, even going so far as to battle her cousin, Superboy, the Flash and Wonder Woman, until she found out that H'el actually planned to destroy Earth to bring Krypton back. Horrified, Kara turned against him. During the final battle, she stabbed him in the chest with a shard of Kryptonite, saving the planet.[16]

Kara collapsed afterwards, muttering that she couldn't "leave things to her baby cousin". Superman held her in her arms as he carried her to safety.

Supergirl and Power Girl

Her ordeal with H'el left Kara with a severe case of Kryptonite poisoning.

Kara went to Dr. Shay Veritas to help, but she grew impatient and left during a battery of tests. On her way back, Kara was attacked by an alien woman made of lava [17] (who previously had attacked Superboy [18]). The lava woman defeated Kara, but she fled when the US Army came along. The soldiers were about to an unconscious Kara with them, when Power Girl showed up and rescued her alternate self.[19]

Both girls fought the army and an agent of Lex Luthor named Appex. Supergirl and Power Girl won the battle, but Kara fainted again, and Power Girl took her to Sanctuary to heal her. Unfortunately, the Sanctuary's AI went crazy and tried to kill Kara, forcing both heroines to blow it up.[20]

I'noxia and Cyborg Superman

Believing that no one could heal her illness, Kara left Earth to die alone.

Kara headed out into space and ran into I'noxia, a technological world conquered by Brainiac and ruled by Cyborg Superman.[21]

Cyborg Superman pretended to be a friend before revealing his true intentions: using Kara's flesh to reconstitute his own body and restore his memory.[22] Kara fought hard and desperately but he won. Kara's body was dissolved and her soul was forcefully integrated into the I'noxian mind-hive as her flesh was used to reconstruct Cyborg Superman's body. However Cyborg Superman got his memories back and remembered he was Kara's father.[23]

Horrified, Zor-El rebuilt Kara's body -who was meanwhile tearing down the I'noxian's collective consciousness-, turning himself back into the Cyborg Superman. While he and Brainiac -who had come to check on his pawn- fought, Supergirl and the I'noxian collective escaped undetected.[24]

Krypton Returns

Main article: Krypton Returns

Kara helped Superman and Superboy to ruin Hel's plans to bring Krypton back to life, an act which would alter the timeline and destroy the universe.[25]

Supergirl travelled to the Battle of the Sky Core during the Great War in order to prevent a clone insurrection, and defeated H'el in that timeline.[26] For his part, Superboy was sent to Argo City, a few days before Krypton's destruction, and protected Kara Zor-El from H'El.[27]

Kara and Kal reunited in the present after fulfilling their respective missions. There, they learnt Superboy didn't make it. Mourning his loss, they returned to Earth.[28]

Red Daughter of Krypton

After several months of endless battles during which Kara never dealt with her survivor guilt and feelings of loss and loneliness, and believing she had been manipulated, betrayed or let down by everybody she met, Kara was on the verge of a breakdown.[29]

While visiting Dr. Veritas, Kara ran into Lobo.[30]. They fought, and during the battle Lobo taunted Kara until she exploded, and her long-repressed, unleashed fury acted like a magnet to a Red Power Ring.[31]

After a brief scuffle with Silver Banshee, a barely coherent and enraged Kara flew into space so that she didn't hurt anybody.[32] Found by a pair of Green Lanterns, Kara was taken to [Ysmault] by Hal Jordan [33] and dunked into the Blood Ocean. After getting her sanity back, Kara joined the Red Lantern Corps of Guy Gardner. [34]

Ironically, joining the Rage Lanterns helped Kara get over her anger and isolation issues, and gain emotional stability. She fought alongside the Red Lanterns for a while, battling the Diasporans [35] and Atrocitus splinter cell [36] until Guy kicked her out of the team so she didn't die while fighting Atrocitus.[37]

While Kara was returning to Earth, she was attacked by the Diasporan army, who tried to capture her. Kara beat them and engaged the Diasporan leader, who revealed he was the last Worldkiller. A parasitic being, the Worldkiller tried to bond with Kara and take over her body.[38] Kara hurled herself into the Sun to destroy it, but when her attempt failed, she removed her Red Ring. Such an action should kill her, but the Sun restarted her heart and granted her a power boost which allowed her to destroy the last Worldkiller once and for all.

Free from the Red Ring and the accompanying all-consuming anger and confusion clouding her mind, Kara realized Earth could become her new home after all, and headed for the planet.[39]

Superman Doomed

Main article: Superman: Doomed

During the events of Superman Doomed, Kara and her Red Lantern allies tried to stop the infected Superman, but Kal-El [40] defeated them easily. So she tried a different tactic, showing her cousin he could harness his anger to protect the galaxy, like she had done.[41]

After ridding herself of the Red Ring, Kara returned to Earth and helped out to rescue people trapped or hurt owing to the energy-draining Brainiac's attack. In the process she saved the parents of Michael, a crippled boy she had a brief relationship with.[42]

Shortly after she spotted Superman when he was returning to Earth and caught him when he got hit by an energy pulse that sent him plummeting through the atmosphere.[43] Finally, Kara saved Batman from Cyborg Superman, defeating him conclusively.[44]

In the aftermath of the battle against Brainiac, Kara met Red Hood, who 'requested' her help to dismantle an alien gang that was supplying alien weaponry to street gangs.[45]

Red Lantern Atrocities

Shortly after Kara left the Red Lanterns, Atrocitus invaded Earth. Kara took part in the battle, helping her ex-team out [46] and keeping an army of newly-created Red Lanterns at bay while Guy took the fight to Atrocitus.[47]

Remarkably, she had the opportunity to seize a new Red Ring but she turned it down, arguing that she had let her anger go.[48]

Future's End

Main article: Futures End

During the Future's End event, Cyborg Superman erased Kara's memories and turned her into Cyborg Supergirl, turning her into his tool with which find a world he could transform into a New Krypton. Four years later, the duo ran into the Wanderers, who managed to undo Cyborg Superman's mind-wipe. Horrified, Kara turned against Cyborg Superman -yet not knowing his real identity- and fought him. Afterwards she joined the Wanderers.[49]

Supergirl and the Justice League

After being released from the Red Ring, Supergirl joined a new Justice League along with Martian Manhunter, Stargirl, Green Arrow, Animal Man, Hawkman, Equiniox, Adam Strange and Alanna Strange.[50]

Convergence

Convergence Vol 1 0 Textless
New DC logo

This section of the history takes place during Convergence, a massive crossover event revisiting characters from past eras and realities. The villains Brainiac and Telos plucked them from their own timeline and stored them together, causing them to cross over into each others reality. Its precise chronological placement and canonicity may be unclear

Main article: Convergence (Event)

While several alternate Supergirls fought in the Convergence planet, Kara joined the heroes working to save the universe. However, when Telos manifested in their universe, most of heroes fled. Only Kal and Kara stayed behind to watch, holding hands and hoping for the best.[51]

Crucible Academia

Main article: Supergirl: Crucible

After her ordeal with the Red Lanterns, Super-Doom and Brainiac, Kara decided to make an effort to adapt to Earth. She started working as barista in New York and dated Michael. During a heart-to-heart conversation with her cousin, she stated that Earth was her home now and she wanted to live among the people she was protecting.[52]

Shortly later she was transported away to Crucible Academy, an intergalactic organization that trains heroes. Kara agreed to undergo training, and after helping to uncover a conspiracy to take over the school, she graduated and returned to Earth.

After returning, though, she realized her powers were suddenly gone.[53]

Final Days of Superman

After coming back from Crucible Academy, Kara's powers started being leeched by Vandal Savage shortly before her cousin's secret identity was revealed.[54]

She still tried to help people until she lost most of her powers. Then she was approached by Director Cameron Chase, who offered to help her get her powers back if Kara joined the D.E.O.. Kara agreed, leaving New York City and the Justice League with no explanation[55] -albeit she retained "reserve member" status-[56] and moving to National City.

A few weeks later Superman sought Supergirl out to reveal he was dying, tell her his Fortress belonged to her now and ask her to consider protecting Earth after he was gone. Shedding a tear, Kara accepted.[57]

Later, while she was undergoing treatment to restore her powers, Kara heard her cousin was in danger. She told her new foster parents to let her go, and streaked off.[58]

Kara joined the battle against the Energy Superman, and learned from the existence of the Pre-Flashpoint Superman, but she was unable to save her cousin. Before his death, she vowed that she would make him proud.[59]

Rebirth

Main article: DC Rebirth

As a last-ditch effort to restore her powers, the D.E.O. built a space rocket and sent Kara into the Sun. The intense charge of solar energy managed restore Supergirl's powers, and she flew back to Earth just in time to save the D.E.O. from a Kryptonian werewolf called Lar-On who escaped from the Phantom Zone accidentally.

After that ordeal Kara started working for the D.E.O. officially, moving to National City, being adopted by Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers and attending her new school.[60]

Reign of the Cyborg Supermen

While Kara tried to adapt to her new life and new parents after her cousin's death, Cyborg Superman returned, revealing his true identity to Kara[61] and vowing to make her happy by bringing Argo City back to life... even if he had to sacrifice Earth in the process. He refused to listen when Kara tried to dissuade him from that course of action,[62] forcing her daughter to fight him.[63] Kara managed to disable his cybernetic body, and after expressing regret at his inability to ask her help to save Argo, Kara hugged him and vowed to help him go back to being the man he was.[64]

Superman: Reborn

After putting a stop to Cyborg Superman, Supergirl and the D.E.O. worked on finding the cause of Lar-On's transformation in order to cure him.[65]

A few days later, Superman visited Supergirl and invited her over to celebrate a Kryptonian celebration called "Day of Truth"[66] and introduce her to his son Jonathan.[67] Kara was thrilled to finally talk to her family and meet her second cousin Jonathan. Afterwards, Clark revealed Kara that he and Lois were whole again after being split by an unknown but immensely powerful enemy, and history was changed in the process.[68] Kara stated she would always be there for him, and promised help him fight whoever threatened him.

Escape from the Phantom Zone

After listening to the telepathic messages of a alleged Kryptonian emprisoned by Project Cadmus called Gayle Marsh (Psi), Kara enlisted Batgirl's help to break into a Cadmus black site. Although it was revealed Gayle wasn't Kryptonian but she was trying to find a way to travel to the Phantom Zone, Supergirl and Batgirl became friends during that case.[69]

Several days after her meeting with Kal, Supergirl had to attend a clean energy expo sponsored by TychoTech, Simon Tycho's old firm. TychoTech stole Kryptonian dangerous techonology from the D.E.O. and created a device powered by energy siphoned from Phantom Zone. Supergirl needed to be in the event to make sure that nobody got hurt. Kara met Barbara Gordon before the unveiling and recognized her right away. Magog attacked Supergirl during the ceremony and their battle broke the device down. Both Batgirl and Supergirl were thrown into the Phantom Zone.[70]

There they were captured by Xa-Du, the Phantom Zone's first inmate. Xa-Du had captured Psi, intending to coerce her into opening a rift to escape from the Zone, but she encased herself into a psionic bubble. So Xa-Du was boiling other Phantom Zoners over and turning their souls into fuel for his armor in order to make himself powerful enough to break her shell.[71] Batgirl and Supergirl managed to escape, and Batgirl faced Xa-Du while Supergirl reached Psi out. Both girls managed to defeat the villain and Psi sent them back home. After their adventure, Barbara and Kara praised each other, and Barbara stated Kara could ask her help whenever she needed her.[72]

In the meantime, Emerald Empress got to build a team to destroy Supergirl.

Superman Revenge Squad

Main article: Superman: Revenge

Hank Henshaw, turned back into Cyborg Superman, and five other Superman enemies -Zod, Mongul, Metallo, Eradicator and Blanque- allied themselves to destroy the Man of Steel.[73] Blinded and cornered, Kal-El took his wife and son to the Fortress, sent his cousin a distress call and tried to fight the six villains at once. The Superman Revenge Squad was about to kill him when Supergirl swooped down and took her cousin away.[74]

The Superman Family and the Revenge Squad battled. Kara fought Cyborg Superman, but when Zod appeared to blow up Lois and Jon's escape ship, Supergirl got utterly mad and attacked him. Unfortunately he smashed her into the ground.[75] Zod sent the rest of the Superman Family to the Zone and decided to kill the last member of the House of El, but Superboy -riding a Kryptonian battle suit- distracted Zod long enough for Kara recovering. During the battle Supergirl struck Zod and bashed Metallo. However Zod managed to get his own family out of the Zone and leaving Earth together with them. After the battle, Superman and Supergirl freed the Superman Family but agreed to leave Cyborg Superman in there.[76]

The Girl of No Tomorrow

Emerald Empress put together a new Fatal Five team to destroy Supergirl, made up of Selena, Magog, Indigo, Solomon Grundy and herself.

Kara was a kind, sweet, compassionate girl when she still lived in Krypton.[77] However, the circumstances of her arrival on Earth (being placed in suspended animation by her father and waking up two decades later to find herself stranded in an alien world long after her planet was gone) soured her character,[78] which Superboy noted when he time-travelled.[79]

For a long while she was depressed over her situation, feeling alone, friendless and unable to fit in Earth or somewhere. She was still a good girl at heart that tried to help people[80], but after several months of endless battles and conflict she was downcast and above all very, very mad.[81] So mad that she became a Red Lantern.[82]

However, her time in the Red Lantern Corps served as a catharsis which helped her pull through. After losing her Red Ring Kara was still troubled but she was more optimistic and good-natured, and she made a real effort to fit in, make friends[83] and become a hero.[84] When she starts working for the D.E.O. she has become the kind of hero who will beat criminals up but also try to help them.[85]

Secret Identity: Kara Danvers

Kara created her "Kara Danvers" identity when she started to work for the D.E.O. She began wearing a pair of glasses, and an holographic gadget built into her turned her into a brunette (a nod to the Kryptonian comb used by her original incarnation). Her "Kara Danvers" persona was a bit of an awkward tomboy that didn't quite fit in; not entirely an act due to her stranger in a strange land status.[86]

Relationships with allies

  • Superman: Due to tampering to the timline by a powerful entity, Superman and Supergirl's relationship was uneasy and troubled for a long time. Kara was still reeling from the loss of Krypton whereas Kal had gotten over it long ago, and it drove a wedge between both cousins.[87] Also, Kara wasn't initially sure that she could trust Superman or believe his claims of being her cousin[88]. However, Superman wanted to help her and stay close to her, although he wouldn't force her to accept his help.[89] After Kara's Red Lantern ordeal was over, they started to rekindle their strained relationship slowly[90] until Superman asked her to take over[91] before his death.[92]. As a result of Superman's personal timeline being relatively restored,[93] they seem to be as close as they were before Flashpoint.[94]
  • Lois: Kara barely knew and seldom met Post-Flashpoint Lois Lane. When the pre-Flashpoint timeline was partially restored, so did their relationship. When Superman paid Kara a visit, she asked how Lois was doing right away, and later both women exchanged gossip while having dinner.[95]
  • Jon Kent: Kara loves her youngest cousin and enjoys his company. He has asked stuff about the Kryptonian side of his family, and she has noted Jon looks just like his father.[96]
  • Siobhan Smythe: Siobhan became Kara's first real friend after her arrival. They bonded over being immigrants looking to start a new life.[97] However they had an argument when Kara decided to leave the planet.[98] Kara intended to apologize when she returned, but then she thought her friend was better off without her.[99] Although Siobhan tried to reach out to Kara when the she became a Red Lantern,[100] Kara wouldn't dare go near Siobhan and apologize afterwards, blaming herself for the end of their friendship.[101]
  • Batgirl: Kara and Barbara developed a quick friendship when both heroines teamed up to break an inmate out of a clandestine Cadmus Lab. Kara was a big Batgirl fan before ever meeting her, and Batgirl likes the younger hero.[102] Kara also guessed Barbara's secret identity when the latter went to National City.[103]
  • Power Girl: Supergirl and Power Girl bonded quickly after meeting and acknowledging they were the same person.[104] Power Girl wasn't exactly impressed with her younger self's competence,[105] but she cared for Supergirl and admitted that she was also a hot-headed and impulsive teenager.[106] Unfortunately, Supergirl felt pretty pathetic compared to her adult version.[107]
  • Guy Gardner: Guy functioned as a sort of mentor to Kara during her time in the Red Lanterns, worrying about her[108] and trying to guide her and teach her how to control and harness her rage.[109] Kara resented a bit being called "kid", but she respected Guy.[110]
  • Bleez: Kara and Bleez were friends when both girls served in the Red Lantern Corps.[111] Bleez was glad to see another girl in the team and liked Kara but wasn't afraid to call her out when the younger girl made a mess.[112]
  • Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers: Jeremiah and Eliza are Supergirl's D.E.O. "handlers" and foster parents. At the beginning Kara didn't know what to expect when Director Chase assigned them as her parents,[113] but she respected them for trying to look after her, and became a pretty overprotective daughter.[114]

Romances

Kara's love life was pretty awful in the beginning. Her first crush was H'el, and she broke up with him as soon as she realized he was a lying, genocidal madman.[115] She looked back on that "relationship" like a terrible mistake born from stupidy and despair.[116]

During a joint mission between the Justice League United and the Legion of Super-Heroes, Brainiac 5 hinted that Kara and him would be in a relationship in a future.[117]

Powers

  • Kryptonian Physiology: Under the effects of a "yellow" sun, Kara possesses the same potential powers as an average Kryptonian. These include:
    • Solar Energy Absorption: Under optimal conditions, this is the main source of Kara's super powers as they are contingent upon exposure to solar radiation from a yellow sun star system. Her biological make up includes a number of organs which lack analogues in humans and whose functions are unknown. It is believed that between one or more of these and her bio-cellular matrix, "yellow" solar energy is stored for later use. This allows for the use of these powers to fade when yellow solar radiation is not available instead of immediate failure.
    • Heat Vision: Kara can, as a conscious act, fire beams of intense heat at a target by looking at it. She can vary the heat and area affected.
    • Super-Hearing: Kara's hearing is sensitive enough to hear any sound at any volume or pitch. With skill and concentration, she can block out ambient sounds to focus on a specific source or frequency.
    • Enhanced Vision Kara's vision processes the entire electromagnetic spectrum as well as allowing vast control over selective perception and focus.
      This umbrella ability includes the following:
      • Electromagnetic Spectrum Vision: Kara can see well into most of the electromagnetic spectrum. She can see and identify radio and television signals as well as all other broadcast or transmitted frequencies. Using this ability, she can avoid detection by radar or satellite monitoring methods. This also allows her to see the aura generated by living thing.
      • Telescopic Vision: This is the ability to see something at a great distance, without violating the laws of physics. Though limited, the exact extent of the ability is undetermined. In function, it is similar to the zoom lens on a camera.
      • X-Ray Vision: This is the ability to see through any volume of matter except lead. Kara's can see things behind a solid, opaque object as if it were not there. She can focus this ability to "peel back" layers of an object, allowing hidden image or inner workings to be observed. The exact type of energy perceived - such as x-rays, cosmic rays, or some other energy invisible to normal humans - is unclear. This ability perceives an ambient energy source though, it does not involve the eye projecting a concentrated, possibly toxic, beam to be reflected back from objects.
      • Microscopic Vision: This is the ability to see extremely small objects and images down to the atomic level.
      • Infrared Vision: Kara's can see with better acuity in darkness, and to a degree in total darkness.
    • Flight: Kara is able to manipulate graviton particles to defy the forces of gravity and achieve flight. This ranges from hovering to moving in any posture, in any direction.
    • Invulnerability: Due to the interaction of her dense molecular structure and supercharged bio-electric aura, Kara is nigh-invulnerable to extreme energy forces. In addition, her extends this protection against toxins and diseases.
    • Superhuman Stamina: Kara is able to maintain continuous strenuous physical action for an indefinite period of time. This based on her body converting yellow solar radiation directly to energy, but is limited by physiological and psychological needs to eat, drink, and sleep.
    • Superhuman Strength: Kara's strength is augmented by yellow solar radiation interacting with the greater than human density, resilience and biological efficiency of her musculature. Her strength is more an act of conscious will on energy fields than actual physical strength. It is this act of conscious will that enables her to perform physical feats that are beyond the mere application force, such as moving a mountain top without said rock crumbling under its own mass.
    • Superhuman Speed: Kara is able to move at incredible speed by sheer force of will. This extends to her perceptions and allows for feats such as catching bullets in mid flight as well as covering vast distances in little or no time.
      This also confers:
    • Super-Breath: Kara is able to create hurricane force winds by exhaling air from her lungs. She can chill the air as it leaves her lungs to freeze targets. She can also reverse the process to pull large volumes of air or vapor into her lungs.
  • Sonic Screams In order to get out of a trap created by Cyborg Superman, Kara disrupted the frequency of the machine by screaming at a certain frequency.[118]

Abilities

Weaknesses


Weapons

  • Supergirl is known as the Girl of Steel and the Girl of Tomorrow.[120]
  • Supergirl is the first member of the Red Lantern Corps who has managed to destroy her own ring and survive without one and without having any help from a Blue Power Ring, only because she was able to absorb enough yellow sunlight due to being at Earth's yellow sun when it happened.
