Kara Zor-El is the daughter of Zor-El and Alura In-Ze and the cousin of Kal-El. At a young age, she and her parents went to Kandor to visit friends when Brainiac arrived. She watched in horror as Kryptonians were slaughtered by robots and Kandor was beamed up into Brainiac's Bio Shell. Fearing Brainiac's return, the Zor-El's sent Kara to Earth.
Though older than Kal-El, Kara Zor-El arrived on Earth decades later and found herself biologically younger. She had a difficult time adjusting to life on Earth. Superman sought to have her go through the same life he did at the Kent farm but she and the Kent's were too old to repeat the past. She rebelled and became Supergirl. Several months later, with her newfound powers, Supergirl aimed to use them against those she deemed bullies - namely North Korean human traffickers, Mexican druglords, and genocide in Africa.
After Superman defeated a Brainiac probe, Supergirl recognized it and told him about the alien cyborg. At Superman's prompting, Supergirl was unsure she could protect Earth if he failed against Brainiac. Lois Lane used Jimmy Olsen's Superman Wrist Watch to catch Supergirl's attention. She admitted to avoiding Metropolis the past few weeks because it would surely become a target of Brainiac. Lane consoled her and advised her it was okay to be scared or show it. Supergirl departed the Daily Planet to take on a Somali warlord. Supergirl was elated to see Superman return with Kandor and her parents.
While hesitant at first, Supergirl joined Superman in defending Metropolis. In the process of Metropolis being stolen by Brainiac, they were beamed aboard. Superman broke free from his restraints and revived Supergirl. Together, they battled a swarm of drones but Brainiac launced a Solar Aggressor at the Sun to destroy Earth. Supergirl flew after it. Unable to redirect it, she blasted a panel with her heat vision and managed to change its course just in time. After Kandor was restored on a new planet, Supergirl was reunited with her parents.
