A young girl named Kara Zor-El is sent to Earth by her mother Alura to protect her cousin, Kal-El, as their planet, Krypton, destructs. The planet’s explosion forces her ship off course and into the Phantom Zone, where she stays for 24 years before landing on Earth. Kal-El, now an adult and going by the name Superman, puts Kara in the care of the Danvers. Twelve years later, Kara is forced to reveal herself to the world when her adoptive sister’s plane is sabotaged and she must save everyone. Her sister, Alex, is revealed to be working at the Department of Extra-Normal Operations, under the leadership of Hank Henshaw, investigating alien activity. She learns that there are hundreds of aliens on the planet in hiding, most whom came from a prison that crashed on Earth when she did, and that her mother was the one responsible for imprisoning the intergalactic criminals. Her actions attract the attention of Vartox and, with guidance from Alex, she is able to defeat him. New art director James Olsen reveals he was sent to look after her and presents Kara with a gift from Superman, a new cape for her costume. Vartox’s superior is revealed to be Astra, Alura’s identical twin sister, who wants to conquer Earth.
