Kara Zor-L was born on the Earth-Two version of the planet of Krypton.
When Kara's father, Zor-L, was disgraced and outcast from the Kryptonian elite, he and his wife decided to try and give their newborn child a chance at a better life someplace else. Hence he placed his infant daughter on a spaceship and shot it towards Earth. Kara’s ship traveled slowly, and resulted in Kara arriving on Earth only decades later. Kara’s ship was called the Symbioship and it was designed to keep her in a stasis mode during her flight to Earth. To ensure that Kara's mental development kept pace with her physical growth, the ship provided her with a virtual reality that gave her life experiences and education as if she had grown up on Krypton rather than in stasis. During her long journey through space, she was able to interact with virtual copies of her parents and friends in her home city of Kandor.
When Kara's ship finally arrived on Earth, she was in her early twenties. At first the adjustment was abrupt and complicated, but eventually she managed to pass herself off as a regular earthling under the identity of Karen Starr. She enrolled at university and spent a few semesters living a regular life. Shortly afterward, Kara set forth on Earth-Two to become the heroine known as Power Girl.Activity:
