In the New 52, Supergirl is just arriving on earth from Krypton. As soon as she arrives on the planet in her pod, she is already fully dressed unlike in her post-Crisis origin where she arrives completely naked. As soon as she arrives, she thinks that she is within a dream and that nothing is real. She is soon greeted by mechs who were aware of her arrival on earth from space and were dispatched to apprehend her. She is then seen struggling with all of the mechs, but soon the sun comes up and her powers are seen to develop further and she dispatches the mechs with greater ease than she previously had shown. She is then seen trying to interrogate one of the people that was within the one of the mechs, asking where she was as Supergirl had understood that she actually wasn't in a dream. This interrogation, while completely innocent was unsuccessful because Supergirl cannot speak the same language as the human. At this precise moment, Superman arrives and orders Kara to stop. In a flashback, it is seen that from Kara's perspective, three days ago she was babysitting her younger cousin Kal-El (who unbeknownst to her has now grown into the role of Superman) awaiting to engage in her 'Final Trials'. In the present however, Superman is seen in front of her and asks her, in Kryptonian, who she is. Supergirl is seen irritated by this because she doesn't know who he is and why he is wearing the symbol of her house. She demands to know where she is and where her family are as well. When Superman convinces her to tell him who she is, she does so and then he tries to explain to her that he is her cousin. Kara refuses to believe this and punches Superman across the face, calling him a 'liar'. She reasons this, of course, because three days ago Kal-El was a baby in her arms. Superman continues to try and reason with her and attempts to take her away from the scene and the two end up going from Russia to China. Eventually, while fighting in the great wall of China Kara realizes that she is damaging people's lives and housing and thus she starts listening to Superman who tells her he will not fight her any longer. This is when Superman tells her that Krypton is gone. It is also revealed that some mysterious members stole some sort of crystal from Kara's pod and that they now have her belongings. Kara doesn't however believe in anything that Superman tells her and decides to go back to her pod to find out the 'truth'. She goes back to her pod and is amazed by the fact that Superman is going to protect people in danger instead of helping her to find out if there is even a chance of Krypton being intact. However, Superman gives her a final warning telling her that she "is not prepared for" this world. When she arrives there she is greeted by a hologram of Simon Tycho. She doesn't understand anything that he is saying but she decides to follow the hologram when she sees a model of her belongings, thinking rightly that he would have them. When she arrives at the space station where Mr. Tycho and his operatives are situated, she is 'greeted' by insect like robots that shoot heat beams and here Supergirl demonstrates that she is able to heat her body temperature up to a greater degree than the robots can shoot. As a second test, Mr. Tycho sends The Brain to fight Supergirl, who she eventually defeats by leaving it in open space. She then finds her belongings with her X-Ray vision, but finds out it is a trap when they get there because she is being exposed to Kryptonite.She is then held in a tube, while Mr. Tycho and his team test her clothing, among other things. However, a reluctant employee who was actually controlling a mech during the fight and was earlier interrogated by confused Supergirl, tries to rescue her. However, he is unsuccessful because he is stomped midway by his employer, Mr. Tycho and shot dead. Supergirl however is now in contact with the sun and can fight back, however she comes to a standstill when Tycho shows her the sunstone in his hand, which Kara realizes probably has a message from her father within it. To combat this, Kara uses her vision to explode the satellite. With this she gets the sunstone and flies out of the satellite. She measures the amount of damage inaccurately and the Satellite ends up exploding almost completely, leaving Mr. Tycho without limbs and heavily burnt. His assistant put him in The Brain to help him recover. At the end however, he remains happy because he has Supergirl's blood sample on one of his employees, which was his aim in the first place. Shortly thereafter, she encounters Superboy, whom she soon recognizes as a clone. This realization sends her into a rage and, calling him "Kon-El," an "Abomination in the House of El" she engages him in combat. Ultimately, however, the two are able to reconcile.
