History: When Kryptonian Kara Zor-El landed on the planet Earth, she met her alien cousin, Kal-El (more popularly known as Superman). Kara wanted to live with Superman, but the hero couldn't risk exposing his secret identity, so he registered her at the Midvale Orphanage. He disguised Kara in a brown pig-tailed wig and she took to using the alias Linda Lee. Superman explained to the Orphanage's headmaster, Mister Dixon, that Linda's parents were killed in a natural disaster and that she was now an orphan. In actuality, both of Kara's birth-parents actually survived their presumed fates, though neither Kara nor Superman realized it at the time. As Linda Lee, Kara lived under the tutelage of Headmistress Miss Hart where she befriended a young orphan boy named Dick Malverne. After an indeterminate period of time, a local couple named Fred and Edna Danvers adopted Linda Lee into their home. Linda began to refer to herself as Linda Lee-Danvers. Secretly however, she still adventured as Superman's secret weapon - Supergirl.
