Personality: Abrasive. Kara is a woman bursting with life. She has enthusiasm for her company, for her friends, and for movies that scare the pants of off most people. But most of all she has enthusiasm for her work as Power Girl. Of course that doesn't mean that this feeling extends to the people she's fighting. Most of whom are usually groan-inducing nuisances at best. She has little patience for those kinds of people and situations. It can make her seem like she has a shorter temper than is actually the case. Kara thinks of herself as a 'bruiser' type. The person they call when it's time to punch something a lot. But she is by no means slow witted or dumb. She can be extremely patient with others, considering the kinds of things she has to put up with. However if her friends and loved ones are threatened the parties involved had better have a very good hiding place. For most people it's hard to get on her shit list; however the hacker known as Oracle has managed to find her way there after a partnership between the two of them went south, ending in the deaths of hundreds when a mission to protect a Foreign Dignitary and a boat full of refugees was destroyed. Her hard feelings toward Oracle have since begun to wane but such wounds do not heal quickly.

When Kara was very young her father and his brother Jor-L discovered that Krypton was about to explode. At the same time that Kal-L's ship is launched toward Earth his Uncle launched Kara as well, marking her ships navigation with the same destination. However Kara's ship traveled much more slowly, and she arrived on Earth decades after her cousin has landed. Kara’s Symbioship had been designed to keep her in stasis during the journey and provide her with life experiences and education in the form of virtual reality. The Symbioship allowed her to interact with virtual copies of her parents and fellow Kryptonians within her home city of Kandor. By the time Kara arrived on Earth, she was nearly twenty years old.

Power Girl's cousin Clark and his wife Lois Lane provided her with a family environment to assist her transition towards real life relationships. It proved helpful and eventually she began to work with a few other heroes including some members of the Justice Society. But having been raised by the Symbioship with artificial Kryptonian life experiences, Power Girl had difficulty adapting to life on Earth. With the help of reporter Andrew Vinson, she adopted the secret identity of computer programmer Kara Starr after obtaining knowledge in the field from exposure to Wonder Woman's Purple Ray on Paradise Island. She even managed to become close friends with the Huntress; the daughter of the Earth-Two's Batman and Catwoman.

And then the Crisis happened. And for everyone, on every Earth, everywhere; Everything changed forever.

After the Crisis Kara's powers and memories fluctuated wildly and for a time it seemed that she was actually descended from Atlanteans rather than the now non-existent Earth-2. This turned out not to be the case however as her contact with Supergirl and the strange events surrounding it revealed that she was in fact still Kara Zor-L of Earth-2. Somehow, beyond all reason she had slipped through the cracks in time and survived the crisis. This meant that she was still kryptonian, though not as direct a relation to Kal-El as to the Superman of Earth-2. Being misplaced left her feeling lost. Kal-El certainly never treated her differently but she still felt as though she was without a family. Without a home. All this happened in the midst of yet another Crisis. One that saw the emergence of a deranged and twisted Superboy Prime and the return, and then death, of Earth-2's Superman and his wife Lois.

Just as things were settling down at last and Kara was getting back on track with her life, her friendship, and her company; The Brothers made their world altering decision and everything changed again. In the "new" new Earth Kara found that she was lucky to have escaped relatively unscathed. Though she still had not Kal-L nor any of the things she had loved on Earth-2. It seemed also that in this newly fused world her somewhat-cousin Kal-El had yet to meet both her and her counterpart Kara Zor-El. In fact, he wasn't even there. He'd left some 3 years earlier to examine the remains of their (though really just his and Supergirl's) homeworld.

She would not see him for another 2 years during which time Kara once again rebuilt her business "Starrware Enterprises" and made a home for herself once again in NYC. When Superman finally returned to Earth he almost immediately had to stop the machinations of Lex Luthor who managed to steal the crystals from the Fortress of Solitude and created an entire continent out of Kryptonite. After disposing of the continent (which Kara hadn't known about) he spent some time unconsious in the hospital and while she was able to sneak in to visit him Kara was not able to introduce herself to him at that time.

Things didn't go much better after that as Superboy Prime resurfaced, angrier and more powerful than ever. Kara then had to fiercely defend her new home in NYC as the crazed kryptonian assaulted the city. With the help of her company she then took great pride in helping to repair the damage he had caused. The positive feelings gained by doing this however were marred by the complete devastation of Detroit and to this day the woman still deals with lingering feelings of guilt at her inability to prevent that tragedy. Now that her company is up and running again, Kara has accepted an invitation to join the Justice Avengers Society along with another 'pseudo-realative', Cir-El. However she still keeps reservations about associating with the hacker called Oracle. And has yet to reply to Oracles recent attempts to contact her.

Sexuality: Het
Powers and/or Special Skills:
Like all Kryptonians under a yellow sun, Power Girl exhibits all of the classic Kryptonian powers of Superman: super strength; flight; super speed; invulnerability; x-ray, telescopic, microscopic and heat vision; freeze breath; and super-hearing . Continued exposure to a yellow sun will cause the level of her abilities to slowly increase over time.
Current Location: New York
Anything else we should know? Try not to dwell too much on her exceedingly obvious "physical assets". As this is an easy way to piss her off. She will forgive a startled or surprised glance. But if you look like you're trying to ogle you may just lose your eyes. Because of her history and fairly unique existence, Power Girl is one of the few people to have knowledge of and retain memories from before the Brothers fused. However she keeps this knowledge to herself and does not talk about the previous timelines as she feels this would only cause unneeded stress.
