Years ago, Krypton was about to explode and Kal-El was sent to Earth to escape that fate. However, his older cousin, Kara, was also intended to accompany the infant as his protector. Unfortunately, Kara was accidentally diverted into the timeless Phantom Zone for years before finally arriving on Earth decades later and found by her cousin who had grown into Superman. Years later, Kara Danvers is a young professional adrift in a thankless job until a fateful crisis ignites a sense of purpose using Kryptonian powers she had long hidden. Inspired, Kara decides to emulate her cousin's superheroic ways, only to find her foster sister introducing her to the secret Department of Extra-Normal Operations, dedicated to fighting alien menaces including those Kara inadvertently led to Earth. Now with such help, the Maid of Might takes her place as Earth's newest champion with new friends and enemies challenging her world.

Throughout the series, Supergirl and Superman are depicted as being somewhat paranoid about kryptonite, with Superman refusing to work with the DEO until they turn over their supply of the substance, and Supergirl being personally offended that Lena Luthor has a supply and can also synthesize it. This attitude is not consistently kept, however, as Oliver Queen and Alex Danvers are both shown using kryptonite weapons, supposedly after Superman confiscated all the kryptonite. Neither is ostracized or confronted for doing so. See more
