Lucy Lane was the younger sister of Lois Lane, a reporter for the Daily Planet. She went to the all-girls prep school in Midvale where she met Kara Zor-El in her Earth identity as Linda Lee, claiming to be the cousin of Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent. During a weekend that she spent outside the prep school with Daily Planet photographer Jimmy Olsen, Lucy attempted to stop a runaway construction scoop but was knocked unconscious and soon was rescued by Kara as Supergirl.
