Supergirl also known as Kara Zor-El is a young superheroine who has made her mark on the world since her first arrival. Unlike other heroes, she's prone to frequent changes in her costume and yet she somehow remains a recognizable and distinct figure. She's known to be a member of the Justice League: Avengers and considers Earth to be her home, working tirelessly to protect innocents from harm.


Reputation

Known across the planet of Earth as Supergirl; Kara Zor-El is a heroine from the destroyed world of Krypton. While she is known to share some connection with Superman, she has come into her own as a hero fighting to protect the people of Earth from threats both within and without.


Biography

Kara Zor-El is the Last Daughter of Krypton; one of the only remaining survivors from her home world as far as she knows. It was not always like this though, at one time she was a happy young girl living in Argo City on the doomed planet of Krypton with her father Zor-El and her mother Alura. Growing up, Kara had shown herself to be a creative young woman with a passion for the arts but like other members of her family; she had already proven herself to be a genius even among her own people.

What she did not know, is that her life would suddenly change shortly before she was to take part in her trials; the ceremonies and tests that would mark her as an adult in the eyes of Kryptonian society. Her father Zor-El had planned to save Argo City from the impending doom that threatened Krypton, but he was not willing to risk his daughter if his plan failed. He tricked Kara. He told her she was being given a present to honor her upcoming trials, instead she was knocked unconscious when she tried on the ceremonial battle armor her father had given her.

Kara awoke as her father was preparing to launch her away from Krypton in a stasis pod, she pleaded with him to stop, begged him not to do this even as he tried to explain his reasoning to her. Even the arrival of her mother, who started to fight her father, was not enough to prevent the young woman from being launched away from Krypton towards a distant yellow sun.

As Kara’s stasis pod raced away from Krypton, the planet would descend into chaos as it approached its final hour. She would drift into a deep sleep, the destruction of her planet the last sight she would see before her eyes closed.

Was it a dream? As her small spacecraft orbited the Earth’s sun for years she would dream and learn; experiencing a shadow of life upon Krypton thanks to the programs her father had implemented within the stasis pod.

As the years dragged on, nobody came to awaken her. The failsafe mechanisms kicked in and her spacecraft left orbit of the Sun and took her to Earth. Upon approach, her craft would be detected and shot down over Siberia as a mysterious group sought to take control of what they theorized to be alien technology.

Kara emerged from her deep sleep on Earth, confronted by strange men, yelling at her in a strange language she did not yet understand. When they tried to restrain her, she fought back and found that her strength and capabilities were far beyond what she knew herself to be capable of. She had no idea how she was able to shoot laser beams from her eyes or punch men so hard they flew off into the distance; but it had saved her.

She had escaped, just barely; being forced to abandon her only memento of home and much of the knowledge contained within and one day soon she promised herself she would find what she had lost.

That was not too long ago and now she finds herself adjusting to a new and strange life on Earth, a place she is going to have to call home in the absence of Krypton.

Character Details

Kara Zor-El is a passionate young woman who is struggling to come to terms with the loss of her home world of Krypton and everyone she knew. Her creativity and intelligence are often brought into odds with her brash and defiant nature and she can sometimes be known for letting her temper get the better of her in a tense situation. She has a kind heart and is always willing to help those in need, no matter the personal risk to herself. If only she could go home, just once more….


Relationships

Pic Name Relation Diary Notes
BoosterGold1.jpg Booster Gold aka Jon Friend/Team Member |Booster Gold is a fellow member of the JLA and always happy to help people from the future in need. I call him Jon even though it’s his middle name. Did I mention, he’s from the FUTURE? It’s pretty cool. I’m happy to count him as a friend.
Cap-Main.jpg Captain America aka Steve Friend/Team Member Captain America is a legend here on Earth and I’m honoured to be a member of the JLA alongside a hero like him. I haven’t got to know Steve as well as some others on the team but he’s been great and is a true hero always jumping in without thought for his own safety.
ChristinaHendricks007b.png Columbia aka Cameron JLA Recruit Colombia is a new recruit to the JLA and a medic I’ve run into a few times around Metropolis. She helped heal me after Orm almost killed me and I suppose I’d call her a friend although we’ve never hung out.
dc2b0b8ad563270c500f6a7067006fcb.jpg?w=339 Falcon aka Sam Friend/Team Member Falcon is the reason I am a member of the JLA and despite his lack of superpowers he kicks as much butt as anyone else. If he hadn’t sucked at flying and I hadn’t helped him, leading to him mistaking me for a member like him I may not have had the chance to meet everyone else on the team. I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity he presented me even if it was all a coincidental series of events.. or was it fate?
medium.jpg Green Lantern JLA Recruit Green Lantern is another new recruit into the JLA and he’s supposed to be some kind of intergalactic police officer. We’ve had our differences but he’s one of the good guys. Until he reveals his identity and starts showing us he’s one of the family, I’m not sure what to think of him though beyond that. At least he’s on our side?
Hawkeye.jpg Hawkeye aka Clint Friend/Team Leader Hawkeye (the boy) is a pretty cool guy even though he’s a jerk. He’s our leader along with Wonder Woman and even though he doesn’t have powers he’s shown us all what it takes time and time again to be a hero. I almost view him like an older brother, though I’ve never had one it’s kinda weird.
LadyHawkeye01.jpg Hawkeye aka Kate Friend/Team Member Hawkeye (THE GIRL!) is like a sister to me and a best friend along with Zee. Kate Bishop is probably the strongest member of the JL:A, not in terms of powers but her dedication; she’s the heart and soul of the team. Her example is one we should all follow and every day I strive to do as well as she does without the assistance of any powers or gifts.
hawkgirl%281%29.jpg Hawkgirl Team Member Hawkgirl is kind of the odd man (or woman) out on our team. She doesn’t seem to be much of a team player and I never got to know her as well as the others but I have her back. I just hope she has mine.
Morien2.jpg Ozymandias aka Morien Friend/Team Member He's sworn to have all of our backs and I've got his. He's thousands of years old and has seen things none of us may ever see. He's offered to help me with tracking down evidence Kryptonians may have been on Earth and we're team mates!
WW1.jpg Wonder Woman aka Diana Friend/Team Leader Wonder Woman is the other leader of the JLA along with Hawkeye and I’m proud to have met her. She counts Superman among her friends and she’s a Princess of an entire nation! She’s cool and I consider her a friend even though she may not know I really exist outside of the team.

Friends

medium.jpg Changeling aka Gar Logan Friend Changeling is a young shapeshifter and a member of The Titans who is also super cute with Vorpal! We’ve hung out quite a few times and had some fun adventures and I hate to admit it, but I’m jealous he can shapeshift!
thumbnail.jpg Coyote aka Jesana Friend Coyote is a young woman who can change into a Coyote, possibly other things I’m not quite sure yet but definitely a coyote. I met her through Zee and Fenris and she definitely seems like the type of person you can count on. She also has a special Ley Pendulum, GO PRIMAL FORCE!
9bff18e734a6fbf98fe2d436927d381d.jpg Corkey aka Cyborg Friend Cyborg is alright. His grandma calls him Corky. I make sure to call him Corky every single time I see him, relentlessly so everyone will know his nickname. I also owe him a beating for tricking me into thinking Slenderman is real. I’m pretty sure Slenderman is real though, OH MY ZOD so creepy.
Fenris%20Small%204.jpg Fenris aka Jeremiah or Wolfie Friend Fenris is a big bad wolf. That’s not to say he’s a bad person, he’s just able to become a scary wolf type thing and go WOLF on people. Ok that wasn’t very funny but still. He’s the one who gave me my pretty Sapphire Ley Pendulum I ALWAYS wear and he’s the leader of Primal Force, go go Primal Force. YEAH!
misfit1.jpg Misfit aka Charlie Friend Misfit is a Batgirl of some kind who can do teleporty things and other stuff. She’s in Primal Force with me and I’m sure we’re going to become awesome friends!
geXi05W.jpg Rain Friend Rain is a young Magician or Witch I’m not sure which. I’ve hung out with her, beat down baddies and interrupted a dinner with her boyfriend Spearhead and Her. They were nice enough to watch Secret Hospital with me, such a cool girl.
Rowan%209%20Small.jpg Rowan Friend Rowan is a very cool guy who helped take me away from the Atlantis Attack when I stood up to Orm and he almost killed me. Thanks to him I was able to get some good healthy sunlight and heal up a bit faster, DID I MENTION HE CAN BECOME A DRAGON!
585693-296961_155900_robin_super_super.jpg Robin aka BOY WONDER! Friend Robin is Batman’s sidekick. He’s mysterious and a little cute. I don’t get why he wears red. Is he supposed to be a distraction for Batman? Cause like, he distracts me a little! Oh my god, I’m going to rip this page out..
berto-suit.jpg Sunspot aka Berto Friend Sunspot is a member and leader of a group called The ‘X-Men’. It’s a very weird name and I’m not sure what their deal is. He invited me back to his Headquarters once and they all kinda seemed afraid I was going to give them trouble for being troublemakers! He’s pretty cool, we should hang out again but I’m not sure I want to get involved with the X-Men they seem a bit off.
VorpalKeithHM.png Vorpal aka Keith Friend Vorpal was pretty much the first person to become friends with me when I arrived in Metropolis trying to find Superman. He took me back to the Titan’s Castle, gave me a place to stay and made me breakfast. I’d probably still be living there with The Titans if not for Sam meeting me by chance!
ZatannaZatara2015_zpsd3e0277d.png Zatanna aka Zee Friend Zatanna is a good friend of mine (like my best along with Kate) and an awesome magical type girl, I’m not sure if I should call her a Sorceress, Magician, Archmage or something else but well I don’t get magic well and I’m afraid to ask! We’ve had some awesome adventures together both fighting against baddies and having a good time, it doesn’t hurt we have a lot of the same friends! One thing is for sure, she’s a definite friend I can count on anytime.

1383589372000-EARTH-Cv17-1-25-var.jpg General Zod aka Creeper Nemesis General Zod was one of the greatest military leaders our planet ever knew, a friend of my father’s for a time and also one of our worst criminals. I’m not sure how he escaped The Phantom Zone but since he has he’s hounded me relentlessly. I pity him. I wish he could accept the loss of Krypton and move on.
super+stickers+1b.jpg Power Girl aka Monkey Ogre Cousin/Unknown Power Girl is a hero on Earth, not as well-known as some others but she’s pretty cool. It turns out she’s my cousin Kah-run Zor-L, a member of the so called ‘outcast’ branch of our family. Whatever happened has nothing to do with us and I love her, even if she hates me. She’s such a Monkey Ogre and I’m determined we’ll become friends. Maybe if I ply her with food she’ll come around.
2151457-streaky_the_supercat_by_billalger.jpg Streaky the Supercat Pet Streaky the Supercat is my pet cat and an honorary Kryptonian because of the powers he has. I’m not sure how he gained the same type of powers us Kryptonians have but he has become a loyal friend. Unfortunately he isn’t that interested in helping me keep Earth safe like ninety-nine percent of the time since he’s a cat… le sigh.
Superman%201.png Superman aka Kal-El Cousin/Unknown Superman as he’s known here on Earth was my baby cousin Kal-El back on Krypton. I can’t believe he’s all grown up now, even older then I am. He’s set an example that I’ve tried my best to live up to and when he returns I’ll be here to welcome him back home to Earth.
