KARA ZOR - EL the Supergirl of Fashion Part Eleven. A New Supergirl for the New Age.

After many promises in the past that there would NOT be any more reboots to the DC Universe and its characters in 2011 the whole of the DC Universe was changed yet again !

Every character got a make over. Most of the, even got New Origins and all of them got a "New" look. Even Earth Two was re engineered.

However, some of the Bigger names may have got a new look, but they remained the same or should I say similar, but as all past history was NOW  wiped out, it was a clean slate and both heroes and villains now had a chance to really start again.

One of the "new" Heroes in the New Universe was Supergirl, who in essence was the same old Kara Zor-El of old. The major difference was she was seen as more Alien to the world she found herself in, unlike her cousin Kal El aka Superman who had little of any idea of what it was like to be a Real survivor of Krypton. He was brought up by Earth parents as an Earthman.Whilst Kara was an Alien who had survived the destruction of her home world.

With a New Look and New Attitude Supergirl became a leading member of the New DC Line Up.

Here is my version of the New Last Daughter of Krypton.

next time a round up of my look at Supergirl.

Until then    ENJOY !

KARA ZOR -EL The Supergirl of fashion Part Ten Welcome Back the New Real Supergirl

After being killed off in the 1980's and later forgotten about and then reborn as a new character in the late 1990's, it was now time for Supergirl to return.

This was again Kara Zor - El cousin of Kal -El Superman.  Her origin and back story was very similar to her late 1950's-1960's version. The only real change was she had been older than her cousin at the time of the destruction of Krypton but her space craft had taken longer to arrive on Earth. So when she arrived her cousin was now a Adult but her suspended animation had kept her as a teenager.

A slight update to her back story would see Kara be coached by not just her Super Cousin, but have guidance from his best friends Princess Diana aka Wonder Woman and Bruce Wayne aka Batman.

Her look was a classic mix of past with a bit of modern added, as she was a teenager after all and she dressed  like one.

Here is my look at the "New" Supergirl.

The Super Shaggy look was in 
 Returning Supergirl to the DC Universe gave the comic company a chance to also address another problem. In the "new" DC Universe Clark Kent did not become Superman until he was an Adult. So that meant Superboy never existed so he never met his teen aged super powered friends in the future aka The Legion of Super Heroes.

So Supergirl took the place of the now defuncted Superboy and became a member of the Legion of Superheroes.  This meant that again Kara could romance Brainic 5 as she had done pre to the original Crisis.

Here is Kara with her "BOYFRIEND" in both era's.

He had the Brains, but she had the beauty !

However, DC decided that again the whole of its DC line and universe needed another re boot.

Next Time a New Super Girl for the modern day.

Until then \ENJOY !

KARA ZOR -EL THE SUPERGIRL OF FASHION part Nine. The Cartoon Version

Before the 2nd Supergirl or Matrix or Mae was finally replaced by a "New" and True version of Supergirl Matrix would end up bonded to an Earth Girl Called Linda Danvers..... (which was the name used by the Silver Aged Supergirl in the 1960's until her demise in the 1st Crisis )

But when she finally broke free of that bond, Matrix took on a younger look and a new costume.

This Costume was a nod to the Justice League of America cartoon series. In a costume that looked more home made, the Maid of Might continued to fight along side the other Heroes of the DC Universe until she was replaced by a new version of the original Kara Zor El. Where Matrix went I am unsure, but she was soon forgotten in the New "Reboot" DC universe of the 2000's

Here is my take on the White Homemade Supergirl costume.

Next Time she is really back   !

Until then ENJOY !

KARA ZOR-EL The Super Girl of Fashion Part Eight ........ A New Super Girl in Town

SuperGirl was now dead, her pace in DC history showed she died helping save the Multi Verse. This was fine, as it gave a chance for her Cousin to now become the sole survivor of Krypton.

Along with the death of Kara came the a reboot that forgot about the golden age heroes that had inhabited Earth Two, also it was goodbye to Krypto the Super Dog, who now never exited, gone was the survivors of Argo City and the Bottled City of Kandor, it was also goodbye to Superboy, as in the New DC World, Clark never put on his Cape until he was an Adult living in Metropolis.

However, his past growing in Smallville was left more or less as it was. Except his Superpowers where known by his best friends Pete Ross and Lana Lang.  BUT where who Clark really was was now a mystery to all.

However, like all things in the world of comics, sometimes people come back from the dead.

Well not back from the dead, as the "NEW" Supergirl was the first in the new DC Universe.

This new Supergirl had a VERY complex back story. Firstly She was Not Kara Zor-EL or really a Kryptonian. Secondly, she came from an Alternative Universe  and had been "Built by Lex Luthor who was a Good Guy in that Universe. Thirdly, She was a combination of a Dead Woman, the other universes Lana Lang, beloved of that Universes Lex Luthor, with a body resembling Lana, Red hair and Powers and costume modelled after Superman of the "New" rebooted DC Universe. Complicated or NOT !

The "NEW" Super-Girl looking very retro.

Like Superman, the NEW Supergirl was strong, and could fly, but also had the power of shape shifting, invisibility and telekinesis. This along with Lana Lang's memories made Matrix, as she had been called, the ideal person to travel to Superman's Universe to recruit him to help deal with a problem with escaped criminals from the Phantom Zone.

The Supergirl look was initially based on a mix of Kara Zor-El's costumes. Matrix would at first be a Red Head, but would later become a Blond.

After Superman saved the day in the "Pocket Universe" he returned home with Matrix, who had been injured in battle and would for a time resemble a  protoplasm humanoid grayish form.
The Lana Red Headed Supergirl and the Damaged form of the Matrix aka MAE KENT

Superman placed her in the hands of his Adopted Earth parents who called her MAE and helped her regain the ability of her shape shifting. When completely healed she would again adopt the Supergirl identity and join the ranks of the other DC Heroes.

Upon the Death of Superman. Mae using her powers took his form, and took on his roll but after a time she started to become mentally unstable and had problems knowing who or what she was.

In the end she would merge with with first an Earth Girl, Linda Danvers, and later with an Angel.

But by that time she was no longer a Supergirl any longer.

Next time Yet Another Super Girl.

Until the ENJOY
