DID YOU KNOW?
Supergirl – or to be more specific Kara Zor-El – made her debut in “Action Comics” #252 in May of 1959. Titled “The Supergirl from Krypton,” the story sees Supergirl (Kara Zor-El) introduced as a Kryptonian youth who was sent by her parents Zoe-El and Alura to live on Earth with her cousin Kal-El. Kara at first takes on the name Linda Lee until she is adopted years later by Fred and Edna Danvers, and is then known as Linda Lee Danvers. Supergirl and Superman appeared in many adventures together, but she was such a hit that she moved into a lead role in the “Adventure Comics” series in the 1960s (along with regular appearances in the pages of “Superman Family Comics”).
