Alias: Kara Kent, Lina Lee, Linda Danvers
Place of Origin: Krypton
In 1986, I followed my aunt Lara-El to Earth, to visit the family Jor-El had chosen for their unborn son Kal-El if Krypton was destroyed by the battle with General Zod.
I was on Krypton in the year 1986 I watched as my father Zor-El told Lara how he desired her, and that if he couldn't have her in the real world, how he would posses her through science. Zor-El then modified my memory to forget what she had seen.
During the war with General Zod, I was on my way to school when Augo stopped me from going and told me that he has a bad feeling about going. I rejected his idea and turned to go into school as it blew up and trapping me under a crystal column. Augo lifted up the column and i ran and told my father Zor-El and walked in on him having a conversation with Aethyr and Nam-Ek in which she was shocked at his association with General Zod and his advanced knowledge of the attacks on Kandor. Zor-El then told me that he is doing it all for Rao's prophecy that has already predicted correctly about the creation of Brainiac and Zod's war and it predicts that the end is near for Krypton. Augo then appears and tells me he is Zor-El's disciple and that i was never in danger but i run away and hide but is soon found by Zor-El and Augo who take me away.
Augo stayed with me whilst she was in lockdown by my father and he tried to make me realize that Rao's Prophecy is to be and that Zor-El will rule earth and she will become a god. I then pretend to believe in the prophecy and I then pushes Augo into a chamber and locks him in then sends it down towards Krypton's core. i then goes to the hologram and activates the House of El and speaks with Lara and tells her that Zor-El is going to ignite Krypton's core when Zor-El comes in and tries to stop me but she pushes him onto the crystals where he stabs his back. He then pretends to be sincere but then pulls out a Crystal of El and wipes her memory. Lara then tells him that he will fail but he says that Krypton is not destined to be and he says that his resurrection has been prophesied and that his body cannot make the journey to Earth so pulls out the blue crystal and then looks at me.
I then awoke as Zor-El was putting me into the ship and hands me the blue crystal. She claims her family was forced into exile by her uncle Jor-El and his associate Martian Manhunter. her ship crash landed in Smallville, Kansas, in 1989 during the first meteor shower. My ship fell into the Smallville Reservoir adjacent to Reeves Dam, where I remained in suspended animation for 18 years until my now-grown cousin Clark battled his doppelganger Bizarro, destroying the dam and waking me from my slumber.
Like her Kryptonian cousin, Supergirl has the ability to fly at great speeds, it has been shown that is able to fly at the speed of light, on one such occasion she has been seen to fly through the moon.
Supergirl has the ability to detect and interpret dissipating sound waves, this means that she is able to hear even the quietest of sounds from a large distance away, meaning that she can pinpoint a single person in the world just from their voice or heartbeat, this is done by filtering out every other sound in the world. Supergirl can also detect sound waves at a higher or lower frequency than a normal human ear can usually detect, this ranges from sub sonic wavelengths to radio waves.
Supergirl needs sufficient time to heal.
Supergirl has the ability to generate intense heat from her eyes, this heat is then focused and projected in the form of beams of radiation, which can be used to melt steel structures or heat up cold coffee, meaning that she can control the temperature of these beams.
In the New 52 it has been shown that Kyrptonians under the yellow sun aren't entirely invulnerable although bullets won't harm them sufficient amount of force and electric shock can. The costume that they wear is actually armor which itself is invincible.
In the New 52 her Super Breath has only been shown that she can hold her breath for a sufficient amount of time in space.
The exact magnitude of Supergirl's strength is unknown, she was easily able to knock down armored weaponized robots only with minimal strain. She can lift 100 tons with minimal effort.
Supergirl was born into a society hundreds of years ahead of Earth. She lived there for about 15 years and learned much of the technology. Krypton was ruled by the Science Council and it was a huge part of their daily lives. Though in the New 52 it's not shown if she still possess it.
Can see through anything except lead.
As like Superman she can move unbelievably quickly albeit not as fast as other speedsters, or those that possess the speed force.
