The story of Kal El is one we have known for many years. The destruction of Krypton was imminent and Jor El made a desperate plan to save his son. What I didn’t know is that the baby boy that became Superman was not the only child of the House Of El to escape the explosion. Kara Zor El was sent to protect her infant cousin. However the best laid plans can often be blown off course.
Kara was propelled into the Phantom Zone where she slept for 24 years. When her pod finally fell to Earth it towed with it some of the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals. Fort Rozz was full of aliens angry with Alura Zor El for taking their freedom. It looks as though the sins of the mother will be paid for by the daughter. Luckily Kara is not alone. She has been raised by the Danvers family where she formed an in breakable bond with her adoptive sister Alex.
A plane crashing with Alex on board causes Kara to reveal what powers the Earth’s yellow sun has given to her. Alex has a secret too. She works for the Department of Extranormal Operations. It is an organization designed to keep Earth safe from alien threats. Maybe having an alien on their team would be helpful.
Join Silver Vox and Green Butterfly as we go back to the beginning. A journey where Kara charts a new path. She wants to make a difference on the planet she now calls home. Kal El may not need her protection but National City needs their Maid of Steel.
