Characters who have, at one point in their careers, have been called Supergirl, a supporting character in the Superman mythos.

Supergirl (Pre-Crisis) (Linda Lee Danvers / Kara Zor-El)

Superman's younger cousin, Kara Zor-El survived the destruction of Krypton thanks to her father, Zor-El, putting a protective dome around Argo City that sent it hurtling into space. However, the citizens of Argo were quickly dying from kryptonite poisoning, so before they died, Zor-El and his wife Alura placed their daughter in a spaceship and sent her to Earth where she could flourish under Superman's guidance.

At first acting as Superman's "secret weapon" while she developed her powers in secret under the assumed name of Linda Lee Danvers, Supergirl eventually burst onto the superhero scent as the Maid of Might. She had a long and illustrious career fighting evil--she became best friends with fellow superheroine Batgirl I (Barbara), became a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes (and struck up a romance with Brainiac 5), and even saved her parents from the past and helped them found New Krypton on the distant planet of Rokyn. She gained her own sidekicks in the form of Streaky the Super-Cat and Comet the Super-Horse.

In the end, Kara died a hero. When the Anti-Monitor attempted to destroy The Multiverse, she sacrificed her own life so that her cousin might live. In so doing, however, she severely set back the Anti-Monitor's plans, making victory possible for the heroes of the surviving Earths. The greatest tragedy of all, however, was that with the destruction of the Multiverse and changes to the timestream, Kara was erased from history, and no one at all remembered her heroic life and death.


Supergirl I (Matrix)

A purple shape-shifting creature from a Pocket Dimension, she was created by that universe's Lex Luthor and patterned after the New Earth Superman. When that universe was attacked by Phantom Zone escapees that she was no match for, Pocket Universe Lex sent Matrix to recruit New Earth Superman, but was too late to save the universe. Matrix was later taken in by Superman to be raised by Supes' adoptive parents and eventually became the first Post-Crisis Supergirl. She later accidentally fused with Linda Danvers below, and made her the next Supergirl.


Supergirl II (Linda Danvers)


Supergirl III (Cir-El)


Supergirl IV (Linda Lang / Kara Zor-El [Post-Crisis])

Superman's older cousin, Kara Zor-El survived the destruction of Krypton thanks to her father, Zor-El, putting a protective force-field around Argo City that sent it hurtling into space. However, the citizens of Argo came under attack from the evil alien Brainiac, so before they were conquered, Zor-El and his wife Alura placed their daughter in a spaceship and sent her to Earth where she would care for her young cousin Kal-El.

Arriving on Earth, Kara found that she had been in suspended animation for decades and her cousin was now an adult while she was still a teenager. Adopting her cousin's mantle as Supergirl, she trained under both Batman and Wonder Woman.
