Supergirl aka Kara Zor-El is a fictional character appearing in comic books published by DC Comics and related media, created by writer Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino. As Supergirl, Kara Zor-El serves as the biological cousin and female counterpart to DC Comic's iconic superhero Superman. Although there have been many precursors, the most prototypical being the Super-Girl character that appeared in Superman #123 (August 1958), the character actually first appeared in a story published in Action Comics #252 (May 1959) entitled "The Supergirl from Krypton." Since the character's comic book debut, Kara Zor-El's Supergirl has been adapted into various media relating to the Superman franchise including merchandise, television, and feature film, making her a cultural icon...

However, during the 1980’s and the revolution of the Modern Age of Comics, Superman editors believed the character’s history had become convoluted, and desired to reestablish Superman as "The Last Son of Krypton." To that end, Supergirl is killed during the 1985 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths, then retconned out of existence. Following the character's death in Crisis, several other characters unrelated to Superman have used the alias "Supergirl."

DC Comics Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Dan DiDio, along with Editor Eddie Berganza and comic book writer Jeph Loeb reintroduced Kara Zor-El into mainstream continuity in 2004 with the Superman/Batman storyline "The Supergirl from Krypton"; a homage to the character’s original debut. As the current Supergirl, Kara Zor-El stars in her own ongoing monthly comic book series (now Volume 5 in DC library terms), the subject of this post.
