Since her creation in 1959, Supergirl has been killed, temporarily replaced with non-Kryptonian versions and rebooted. Due to this, her origin has been modified and revised several times. Several common details remain the same, though: Kara Zor-El is Superman's teenager cousin, born to Zor-El—Jor-El's brother and Superman's uncle—and Allurain Argo City, a Kryptonian city that survived the demise of Krypton thanks to an energy bubble-like force-field erected by Zor-El. When Argo City was also being destroyed Kara was sent to Earth where she met her cousin and eventually donned the mantle of Supergirl.
