Bio:
Born in Argo City, Krypton. The biological daughter of Zor-El and Alura. At the age of 15 a meteor shower damaged the lead shielding over Argo City allowing deadly Kryptonite rays in. Having discovered Superman's presence on Earth, Zor-El and Alura used a small rocket to send Kara there to reunited with her cousin. Superman took her to live briefly at the Midvale Orphanage. She used a brown wig and the name Linda Lee. She was adopted by Fred and Edna Danvers (Action Comics #279). Supergirl was publicly revealed in (Action Comics #285). Tragedy struck and Supergirl temporarily she lost her powers due to the plots of a Kandorian villainess. When she recovered she revealed her true identity to her adopted parents. While in high school Linda learned her biological parents escaped the destruction of Argo City by entering the Survival Zone (a dimension very similar to the Phantom Zone). With the help of Fred Danvers, Supergirl freed them and they now live in the Bottle City of Kandar. (Action Comics #310). Linda attended Midvale High School where she befriended Lena Thorul (Lex Luthor's sister). Linda graduated from Midvale High and won a scholarship to Stanhope College (Action Comics #318). Linda graduated from Stanhope College and worked briefly on a camera crew for KSF-TV in San Fransisco (Adventure Comics #406). Linda quit that job, returned to school and began to take up acting at Vandyre University (Supergirl #1). While at school Linda worked as a student advisor at the New Athens Experimental School in Santa Augusta, Florida. She also worked for a short time as an actress on the soap opera Secret Hearts in New York. Linda once again returned back to school this time attending Lake Shore University in Chicago, Illinois.

Supergirl had a few love interests to include Brainiac 5, Jerro the Merboy from Atlantis, Bronco Bill Starr, Dick Malverne at one time Mr. Mxyzptlk and the secret marriage to Salkor (Superman #415).

Supergirl like Superman had pet companionship to include Comet the Superhorse, Streaky the Supercat, Streaky II (both were normal Earth cats), and when in the 30th century Whizzy a descendant of Streaky the Supercat.

Notes:
Living almost precisely from the opening of the Silver Age to the close of the Bronze Age, the original Supergirl died in the pages of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS as perhaps the greatest martyr in the DCU.

Although killed in the Crisis, the Supergirl of Earth 1 briefly appeared in post-Crisis continuity during the last arc of Supergirl (1995). This appearance has since been retconned due to the "New Earth" that was formed after the events of Infinite Crisis.

Like Superboy, she, too, was a member of The Legion of Super-Heroes, but she didn't make it on her first attempt. During her first audition, she was affected by Red Kryptonite, aging past the upper age-limit for Legionnaires. On her second attempt, she beat out Shrinking Violet for her spot. Her mother Alura made a costume for Kara. The costume was the first of many different costumes she would wear during her career.
