Who is Supergirl? - DC Secret Files & Origins

Teenager Kara Zor-El was rocketed to Earth from the dying planet Krypton. Faced with an entire world completely unrecognizable from the one she grew up in, she’s the ultimate new girl in school—with a planet-splitting right hook. The Girl of Steel possesses all of Superman’s powers, from superhuman strength, speed and invulnerability all the way down to his flight and enhanced senses. Though she struggles to find her identity, she’ll find non-stop action as she fights for justice on Earth and among the stars.

Jon Kent

As the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, Jon Kent has inherited powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal boys. Call him Superboy.

Parental legacies are hard to live up to—especially when your parents are Superman and Lois Lane. And Jon Kent is the child of two worlds. Half Kryptonian and half human, the onset of his superpowers has made him eager to follow in his dad’s footsteps. But Jon has a lot to learn about himself and about the world before he can make a habit of saving it.

Perry White

Metropolis born and bred Perry White is the fearless Editor-in-Chief of world-renowned newspaper The Daily Planet. Famous for his tough-but-fair attitude and his nose for potential, Perry was responsible for hiring both Lois Lane and Clark Kent on to the paper's staff and keeping the Planet afloat through numerous disasters and would-be buyouts. While Perry officially was never let in on Clark's secret life as Superman until very recently, it seems impossible that he wouldn’t have put it together.
