Power Girl is the Earth-Two counterpart of Supergirl and beginning cousin to Kal-L, the Superman of Earth-Two. Power Girl took her cousin ‘s place in the Justice Society of America after he entered into semi-retirement to focus on his personal life. Her survival of Crisis on Infinite Earths and adapting to a fresh world caused her some confusion as to her roots. She believed for a clock time she was descended from Arion, Lord of Atlantis, but following the Infinite Crisis she learned her original bequest still held true.

travel from Krypton

After discovering Krypton was about to explode, Kara ‘s forefather Zor-L launched her as an baby to Earth in a ship at the like time that Kal-L ‘s embark was launched. however, Kara ‘s ship took a a lot longer travel, resulting in her arrive on Earth decades after her cousin .
Unlike Kal-L ‘s ship which was designed for firm travel, Kara ‘s “ Symbioship ” was designed to hold her in stasis during her development through the elongated voyage. In accession, the ship ‘s artificial intelligence ran a virtual reality broadcast, allowing her to interact with life-like copies of her parents and mate Kryptonians. By the fourth dimension she landed on Earth, Kara was an adult woman in her early twenties .

debut of Power Girl

Power Girl ‘s universe was not revealed to the general public until years after her arrival on Earth-Two. Her cousin Clark and his wife Lois provided her with a kin environment that aided her transition from the virtual world she had experienced during her ocean trip to real life relationships. She came to regard her cousin and his wife as her “ uncle ” and “ aunt ” for raising her on Earth-Two despite being cousins by blood and marriage. Lois Lane-Kent stated that they regarded her as their daughter. [ 1 ] In her first record event, Kara assisted Justice Society members Flash and Wildcat in containing an artificially induce volcano that had erupted in Peking, China. [ 2 ] She then joined them and early young heroes Robin and Star-Spangled Kid to form a Super Squad, along with active members of the Justice Society, to defeat Brain Wave and Per Degaton ‘s scheme for earth domination. late, she was granted full membership when she took over Superman ‘s revoke spot on the team roll. Having been raised by the Symbioship with artificial Kryptonian life experiences, Power Girl had trouble fit into life on Earth, but with the help of reporter Andrew Vinson, she finally adopted the secret identity of calculator programmer Karen Starr. She developed her cognition in this plain from treatment under Wonder Woman ‘s purple ray on Paradise Island. Outside of the Justice Society, she developed a close friendship with Helena Wayne, the daughter of the Earth-Two Batman and Catwoman and was late a establish extremity of Infinity, Inc .

advanced Adventures

Following the events of the original Crisis, Kara ‘s background was wholly altered. With Earth-Two no longer existing, Kara ‘s origin was altered and she was immediately the granddaughter of the Atlantean sorcerer Arion and had been frozen in suspend liveliness for millennium until the present day. [ 3 ] In search of her origins, Kara traveled to Skartaris. [ 4 ] [ 5 ] During her journey, she met Jennifer Morgan whom she ended up considering like a sister. finally, the Fates called Kara back, claiming the airfoil needed her. It was with a break kernel she left the people she had grown to consider like her people. [ 6 ] After the Invasion, Kara joined Justice League Europe and was late badly injured by the second gear Gray Man suffering a significant personnel casualty of office. Despite this, she remained a key penis of the team throughout its history, including the inaugural meeting with the Extremists and the Overmaster. In the last days of the JLE, Kara discovered she was mystically pregnant, her unborn child able to magically protect her from injury. During Zero Hour, she was delivered of a son who soon after aged quickly and became Equinox. After battling and defeating Scarabus, Equinox disappeared. [ 7 ] Power Girl was recruited to be one of Oracle ‘s first field agents. Their ephemeral partnership ended in failure after a black mission that resulted in a big loss of liveliness. Power Girl believed that poor people orders from Oracle were to blame for the tragedy and dislike Oracle intensely as a solution ( although she has worked with her again on a few occasions when needed. ) [ 8 ] When Black Canary resigned from the JSA, she recommended Kara take her put, bringing Power Girl full circle back to the Justice Society of America .
During the events of Infinite Crisis, the Psycho-Pirate showed Kara multiple versions of her lineage in an feat to drive her insane, but finally revealed that she was not only Kryptonian but besides a survivor of the stallion Earth-Two population. Kal-L himself returned to the mainstream universe after breaking down the walls of the eden dimension in which he, Lois Lane-Kent, Alexander Luthor, Jr., and Superboy-Prime had been living since the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths. Appalled by the rapidly-deteriorating state of affairs on the contemporary ground, their finish was to replace the post-Crisis planet with a play Earth-Two. Kal-L ‘s first order of business was to track down Power Girl and explain the events of the original crisis to her, deoxyadenosine monophosphate well as confirming Psycho Pirate ‘s claims of her Earth-Two origin. Kara ‘s memories of her Earth-Two life were restored to her when she was reintroduce to an ailing Lois Lane-Kent .
soon after, Kara stumbled upon a machine in which the Martian Manhunter was held captive. Before she could free him, she was attacked by Superboy-Prime and attached to the machine alongside J’onn J’onzz. Alex Luthor then revealed his true ambition of restoring the multiverse using representatives of assorted Earths, with Kara selected because of her radio link to Earth-Two. Kara was late freed by Wonder Girl and Kon-El and joined them in fighting Superboy-Prime and Alexander Luthor, Jr. . Superboy-Prime fled ground for Mogo, pursued by the two Supermen whom he fought. During the crusade, Kal-L was mortally wounded and Power Girl arrived on Mogo with the green Lantern Corps precisely in clock time to bid a tearful farewell to her dying cousin.

Power Girl went on to help reform the Justice Society of America, where she was elected Chairperson of the team. She led the team through its dealings with the Superman of Earth-22 and the confrontation between the JSA and the super-being know as Gog. During that battle, Power Girl was sent by Gog to the twin Earth known as Earth-2. Thinking she had somehow returned to her base world of Earth-Two, she sought to adapt to life there with the counterparts of her retentive dead ( and historically erased ) friends. however, she noticed respective major differences from her reality, peculiarly in the actions of Helena Wayne, who was going to murder the Earth-2 Joker. When Earth-2 ‘s actual Power Girl returned, it became clearly that this was not her dwelling and she returned to the Justice Society. Following a discrepancy in operational methods, Power Girl and the younger members of the JSA split into the Justice Society of America All-Stars. At the same time, she began devoting more time to her previous R & D firm, Starrware Labs in New York City. [ 9 ] and became friends with the young superheroine Atlee aka Terra III, becoming something of a mentor to her. While in New York, she defended the city from Ultra-Humanite, who tried to transfer his brain into her body. After his get the better of, Kara was spared any major conflicts until Ultra-Humanite ‘s ex-girlfriend Satanna tried to avenge his kill. She closely succeeded in killing Power Girl, but Atlee ‘s treatment saved her biography. [ 10 ] Ultra-Humanite finally returned to fight Power Girl, this time having Satanna put his brain in Atlee ‘s body. She was able to knock out Ultra-Humanite without seriously hurting her supporter ‘s body, then tracked down Satanna to force her to undo the price. When that failed, she then took Atlee and Ultra-Humanite to Strata. Atlee ‘s brain as return to her body, and Ultra-Humanite ‘ brain was put into a knockoff, besides curing him of his genetic disease at the same clock time. late, Kara offered him a subcontract, but he refused. Before having his memories erased, he revealed that he was still evil, and trust vengeance on Power Girl before having his memory wiped. Following Blackest Night, Power Girl returned to duty with the Justice League in ordain to hunt down the resurrected Maxwell Lord. While in Moscow, Booster Gold ends destroying the Justice League International embassy, greatly upsetting Power Girl. She flew off to investigate the future lead provided by Batman entirely, only to encounter OMACs. She fought them, but they shut down after Maxwell Lord activated a device that erased his identity from minds of everyone on Earth. When she returned family, she found out that her fiscal policeman and trusted friend Donna Anderson stole all of her party ‘s money, leaving Starrware in bankruptcy. The bank and Kara ‘s rival companies systematically took everything all of Starrware ‘s creations. She then encountered a mysterious cyborg called C.R.A.S.H that was programmed to level New York City. She managed to stop the cyborg, but before she was able to turn him in, Maxwell appeared and rescued C.R.A.S.H. It was besides during this time that Nicholas Cho, an employer of Starrware, figured out Power Girl and Karen Starr were one in the same and threatened to expose her. She manages to convince him otherwise and convinces him to serve as her partner. Power Girl then went to Batman to investigate both Maxwell Lord and Donna who stole from her caller. Due to Maxwell ‘s powers, though, they forgot about him once again. Focusing on finding Donna, they learned that she died of an apparent drug overdose. not buying the facts, Kara traced a potential lead to Antarctica. Upon arrival, she fought Divine, a ringer of her created by Maxwell Lord and Dr. Sivana. When Power Girl came cheeseparing to winning, Maxwell appeared, stunning her and taking Divine away. After the meet, Kara remembered who Maxwell Lord was. Power Girl tried to convince the JSA and Batman about Lord and the threat he posed. however, during the meet, another mind wipe causes them to forget about him once again. Power Girl then goes to Professor Ivo ‘s new lab in Vietnam where he ‘s revived, Project Cadmus. Before she could shut it down, Maxwell stopped her and used his powers, to force her to kill the Justice League International. The JLI managed to snap her out of Maxwell ‘s restraint and decides to join them in stopping him. She then goes to dig up the cadaver of Ted Kord to prove that he was murdered. When she takes the body to Batman to examine it, he initially refused, but after some convert with Batman ( the recently returned Bruce Wayne ), the two examined the body to learn that Ted Kord was indeed killed by Lord. Power Girl then joins Batman and the JLI in stopping Maxwell Lord. After Lord was defeated, Kara was able to restore her company and refocus it on using her creations to help the general public. Knowing that this would mean Karen Starr would have to enter the public spotlight, she puts some advice she received from Superman into natural process and begins putting more attempt into managing her secret identity.

Powers

  • Kryptonian Physiology: Under the effects of a “yellow” sun, Power Girl possesses the same potential powers as an average Kryptonian. These include:
    • Solar Energy Absorption: Under optimal conditions, this is the main source of Power Girl’s super powers as they are contingent upon exposure to solar radiation from a yellow sun star system. Her biological make up includes a number of organs which lack analogues in humans and whose functions are unknown. It is believed that between one or more of these and her bio-cellular matrix, “yellow” solar energy is stored for later use. This allows for the use of these powers to fade when yellow solar radiation is not available instead of immediate failure.
    • Heat Vision: Power Girl can, as a conscious act, fire beams of intense heat at a target by looking at it. She can vary the heat and area affected.
    • Super-Hearing: Power Girl’s hearing is sensitive enough to hear any sound at any volume or pitch. With skill and concentration, she can block out ambient sounds to focus on a specific source or frequency.
    • Enhanced Vision: Power Girl’s vision processes the entire electromagnetic spectrum as well as allowing vast control over selective perception and focus.
      This umbrella ability includes the following:
      • Electromagnetic Spectrum Vision: Power Girl can see well into most of the electromagnetic spectrum. She can see and identify radio and television signals as well as all other broadcast or transmitted frequencies. Using this ability, she can avoid detection by radar or satellite monitoring methods. This also allows her to see the aura generated by living thing.
      • Telescopic Vision: This is the ability to see something at a great distance, without violating the laws of physics. Though limited, the exact extent of the ability is undetermined. In function, it is similar to the zoom lens on a camera.
      • X-Ray Vision: This is the ability to see through any volume of matter except lead. Power Girls can see things behind a solid, opaque object as if it were not there. She can focus this ability to “peel back” layers of an object, allowing hidden image or inner workings to be observed. The exact type of energy perceived—such as x-rays, cosmic rays, or some other energy invisible to normal humans—is unclear. This ability perceives an ambient energy source though, it does not involve the eye projecting a concentrated, possibly toxic, beam to be reflected back from objects.
      • Microscopic Vision: This is the ability to see extremely small objects and images down to the atomic level.
      • Infrared Vision: Power Girl can see with better acuity in darkness, and to a degree in total darkness.
    • Flight: Power Girl is able to manipulate graviton particles to defy the forces of gravity and achieve flight. This ranges from hovering to moving in any posture, in any direction.
    • Invulnerability: Due to the interaction of her dense molecular structure and supercharged bio-electric aura, Power Girl is nigh-invulnerable to extreme energy forces. In addition, her extends this protection against toxins and diseases.
      • Enhanced Immunity
    • Superhuman Stamina: Power Girl is able to maintain continuous strenuous physical action for an indefinite period of time. This based on her body converting yellow solar radiation directly to energy, but is limited by physiological and psychological needs to eat, drink, and sleep.
    • Superhuman Strength: Power Girl’s strength is augmented by yellow solar radiation interacting with the greater than human density, resilience and biological efficiency of her musculature. Her strength is more an act of conscious will on energy fields than actual physical strength. It is this act of conscious will that enables her to perform physical feats that are beyond the mere application force, such as moving a mountain top without said rock crumbling under its own mass.
    • Superhuman Speed: Power Girl is able to move at incredible speed by sheer force of will. This extends to her perceptions and allows for feats such as catching bullets in mid flight as well as covering vast distances in little or no time.
      This also confers:
      • Superhuman Agility
      • Superhuman Reflexes
    • Super-Breath: Power Girl is able to create hurricane force winds by exhaling air from her lungs. She can chill the air as it leaves her lungs to freeze targets. She can also reverse the process to pull large volumes of air or vapor into her lungs.
    • Longevity: Power Girl can live longer than regular humans, remaining at her prime as long as she was under the exposure of the “yellow” sun.

Abilities

Weaknesses

  • Kryptonian Physiology: Under the effects of a “yellow” sun, Power Girl possesses the same potential weaknesses as an average Kryptonian. These include:
    • Vulnerability to Kryptonite
    • Vulnerability to Magic
  • Vulnerability to Psionics: Kara Zor-L is as vulnerable to psionic attacks as a normal human being. She is subject to mental domination attacks against her. Those whose mental powers are superior to her own have been able to render her unconscious or disrupt her natural thought processes in battle.[citation needed]
  • Vulnerability to Raw Materials: Power Girl was vulnerable to unprocessed, natural materials, such as branches and rocks for a short while.[17]
  • Power Limitation: Kara’s x-ray vision cannot penetrate lead or lead-lined walls, or objects of dense enough structure. Certain energies also can be used to block her from visually analyzing them.
  • Power Instability: Originally Power Girl, as an Earth-Two Kryptonian, did not function on solar power, but her own body generated its own energies. However, based on recent events, Kara operates in a similar way to the New Earth universe Kryptonians, whereby she requires solar energy to function at peak capacity, or her powers fade to greatly reduced levels, some disappearing entirely if her solar reserves are empty. How Power Girl’s powers function under suns not colored red or yellow is unknown.

  • Power Girl has gone by many human names, some of which include: Karen Starr, Karen Steele, Kara Scott, Kara Batson, and Karen Danvers.[citation needed]
  • Power Girl used to live in 18 Starfield Place, Brooklyn.[14]
  • Power Girl’s original Post-Crisis origin was reminiscent of the Pre-Crisis Mon-El and Halk Kar’s origins of suffering from amnesia and being mistaken for a relative of Superman.
