Real Name: Kara Zor-El, Kara Kent
Kara Zor-El came to adopt the last name of her cousin, Clark Kent. Although technically older than her cousin, her ship was caught in a kryptonite meteor and was suspended for years until she finally managed to make it to earth. Now, she has all the abilities that Superman does – super human strength, speed, stamina, super vision and lung capacity. In fact, observers note that in many cases, Super Girl actually appears to be stronger and more powerful than Superman himself.
