|Bio: Cousin of Clark Kent, Supergirl is as headstrong as any young
superhero, and sometimes makes rash decisions that affect the
outcome of the fight. Despite her minor screw-up with Brimstone
in Chong-Mi, she is still on-board with the JLU--for now.
When Supergirl started having nightmares about being an assassin,
she began to worry. These weren't just normal dreams to
her--they felt real. She acquired the aid of Green Arrow and The
Question and they got to the bottom of it.
When Superman had gone rogue and turned earth into a
battlefield, Supergirl was taken down by General Hardcastle. She
was taken to S.T.A.R. Labs and was treated by Professor
Hamilton; at this point in time, Hamilton was feeling
particularly betrayed by Superman for all the help he had given
him. When the idea of cloning Supergirl and having a superhero
in "reserve" in case something like Superman's case happened
again, came by Hamilton's desk, he didn't hesitate. Using a
kryptonite-tipped surgery robot, he was able to extract some of
Supergirl's DNA and create a perfect clone. Named "Galatea" or
"Tea", she and Supergirl shared a bond due to the same DNA being
Supergirl's dreams came from this bond and in return Galatea got
Supergirl's unwillingness to kill. Hindering her job, Galatea
took it upon herself to destroy Supergirl. The Question
intervened and gave Supergirl enough time to knock out Galatea;
before they could finish the fight, however, it was ended when
the simulation they were in began to explode, destroying the
building, and supposedly, Galatea.
Feeling that she outgrew her old Supergirl suit, she made herself a new
one more fitting of her ‘super’ powers. A bold new red and blue suit
more suited towards an older woman rather than a teenage girl, her new
costume comes with a new, more matured attitude.
After Supergirl was taken to the future with the Legion of Superheroes
and she met Brainiac V, Kara decided to stay. Feeling more at home in
the future due to her original homeworld's advanced technology, Kara
recorded a goodbye message for Green Arrow and Green Lantern to take
back to Superman.
