Action Comics 252

An Origin Story

If you have never heard of Supergirl, I’m about to seriously educate and amaze you. If you have ever read comic books, or even know anything of the Superman anthology, you would know that Supergirl, or Kara Zor-el as she’s known on Krypton, is Superman’s cousin from that same homeworld.

Kara, just as many other members of the DC universe, has had a rich and eventful existence. From her beginnings in Action Comics # 252 in May 1959, to the recent DC reboot, she’s been killed off, come back to life, and has had many different names and outfits along the way.
