Foil Story

Action Comics #252, from May 1959, presents the first appearance of Supergirl. In "The Supergirl from Krypton!", Clark Kent is working alone in his office one afternoon when he catches something out of the corner of his eye. Using his x-ray vision, he witnesses a purple coloured rocket ship crash landing several miles away. Switching into his Superman costume, he flies off to investigate. When he arrives, he is shocked to discover that the rocket's sole occupant is another Kryptonian – a young blonde-haired girl named Kara.

Kara tells Superman that her hometown, Argo City, was blasted free of Krypton's destruction in a bubble of compressed air but a meteor shower in space penetrated the air bubble and tore through the lead shielding put in my place by her father Zor-El. In order to save his daughter from Kryptonite poisoning, Zor-El designed a spaceship to rocket her away from the city. His wife learned of the existence of Earth, and its Kryptonian hero, Superman. They chose to send Kara to Earth so that she can be with one of her own.

Superman realizes that Kara's father, Zor-El, was the brother of his own father, making the two of them cousins. However, Superman cannot take charge of Kara because he needs to protect his own secret identity. So, he flies her to the nearby town of Midvale and registers her at the Midvale Orphanage. He provides her with a brown pig-tailed wig, and Kara chooses the name Linda Lee as her new Earth name. Superman promises to train Kara in her new super-powers, stating that this Supergirl will become his new secret weapon against fighting crime.

After Superman leaves, Kara settles in at the orphanage. She begins testing her new powers by cleaning her room with super-breath and fixing a bent iron bed leg with super-strength. She cannot wait for her first official adventure as Supergirl!
