This w-classic run by Jeph Loeb features the first chapter of Kara Zor-El s triumphant return! When Superman s Kryptonian parents rocketed their infant son to Earth, his aunt and uncle did the same with their young daughter, Kara Zor-El. The two cousins were meant to arrive on Earth together, but instead Kara arrived just a few months ago, after spending decades in space in suspended animation. Now taking the name Supergirl, Kara possesses strength and speed that rivals (or even surpasses) her cousin Superman s. As she searches for her role in this new world, she ll cross paths (and trades blows) with the JSA, the Teen Titans and the Outsiders. But while she's facing off against other heroes, Superman s nemesis Lex Luthor has uncovered a truth that could change the Girl of Steel forever! SUPERGIRL VOL. 1: THE GIRL OF STEEL features creators Jeph Loeb, Joe Kelly, Ian Churchill and more. Collects SUPERGIRL #0-10, #12.
