First appearance



Midvale was a small suburban town located on the outskirts of Metropolis. Several years ago, a Kryptonian rocket ship landed in Midvale earning the attention of the city's chosen son, Superman. Superman investigated the rocket and was shocked to discover that its sole occupant was a young Kryponian female, Kara Zor-El. Not only was Kara Kryptonian, but she was also Superman's cousin. Superman agreed to take her on as his secret weapon and gave her the name, Supergirl. He also helped to provide her with a civilian identity, Linda Lee, and registered her at the Midvale Orphanage. During the day, Linda remained at the orphanage befriending other teenagers, including the amorous Dick Malverine. At night however, she shed her brown wig and took to the skies as Midvale's self-appointed "guardian angel".

A local engineer named Fred Danvers and his wife, Edna, eventually adopted Linda Lee, but she remained in Midvale for several more years until finally branching out on her own.
