Silver Age Star: Why Lucy is the More Interesting Lane Sister

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.

The perfect combination of brains and brawn, John Henry Irons was one of four different people to take up the mantle of Superman when Kal-El lost his life while saving Metropolis from the monster known as Doomsday. Initially referred to by the media using Superman’s nickname, “The Man of Steel,” Irons simply went by Steel when Superman came back from the grave.
