Official Description

The Kind One

The new girl in school on a new planet, Supergirl has a lot to learn before she can become a full-fledged Super Hero, but she's powerfully persistent with super strength and x-ray vision.


  • Spacecraft: Supergirl has her own jet which she usually flies around in as opposed to flying. She first flew her jet in Batnapped.
  • Motor-mobile: Another way Supergirl can transport. She used this to race against Wonder Woman's invisible motorcycle in Around Metropolis in 80 Seconds.


As seen in Hero of the Year, when Krypton exploded, Kara's parents forced her into a jet so she could escape to Earth. When she protests, stating that they should come with her, her parents explain that there isn't enough space for them all, and they have a tearful goodbye. As Kara's ship blasts her off to Earth, she travels at the speed of light; traveling so fast that she arrives a few years in the future, older. When she arrived on Earth, she received superpowers from the sun, and was adopted by the Kents. She is now a student at Super Hero High.


Supergirl has long blonde hair and wears a light blue headband. She has pale skin and light blue eyes and wears a blue t-shirt with a House of El crest on it and a short red cape, and a red cheerleader designed skirt. She also wears a red bracelet on her right wrist and a blue and a yellow one on her left (one of them was a gift from Barbara Gordon), a crystal pendant from her now deceased mother, as well as white and red high tops.


Supergirl is very kind and caring and extremely powerful but she's also very clumsy.


  • Barbara Gordon : Supergirl's best friend, and first true friend when she came to Super Hero High. While Barbara helped Supergirl become a better superhero, she helped her become a hero herself (Batgirl).
  • Wonder Woman: Although they get along nicely, Wonder Woman was initially jealous of Supergirl, thinking she wanted to outshine her. They are also mutually competitive.
  • Harley Quinn : Harley was the first to give Supergirl a tour of the school They are good friends, but Supergirl does tire of Harley's constant pranks.


  • Pictures of Krypto and Comet are visible in Supergirl's dorm room.[2]
  • Her heat vision is over 9000 degrees.

  • Supergirl's default look was loosely based on her appearance in Superman: The Animated Series.
  • Here, she is younger than Superman. In most depictions, she is older.
  • In G1, her name is pronounced “cair-uh” rather than “kar-uh”.
  • Apparently, a large double spinach sardine and pickle berry smoothie tastes just like her favorite Kryptonian desert.
  • In her LEGO version, her favorite band is called Opposite Direction.
