* MadeOfTianium: [[ImmuneToBullets Bullets bounce off of Reactron]]. So too, do most other attacks, including Kryptonian punches. It may not be the NighInvulnerability of Superman himself, but there's no way around the fact that Benjamin Krull is a durable bastard.
* MajorlyAwesome: Fomrerly Major Benjamin Martin Krull, US Army, and still referred to as such by Lane and Luthor.

Once a sociopathic ex-soldier gifted with the ability to produce radiation, Post-Crisis Reactron was rebuilt as a cyborg with a Gold Kryptonite heart by ComicBook/LexLuthor and went onto play a major role during the ''New Krypton'' story arc, ultimately destroying New Krypton. Having faced Supergirl on numerous occasions pre-and-post-Crisis, and being the man responsible for the death of her father, Zor-El in the post-Crisis continuity, Reactron is one of the rare villains who can legitimately claim to be a member of Supergirl's RoguesGallery.

* EnemyWithout: Luthor exposes Kara to Black Kryptonite, causing a version of Dark!Kara to emerge from her body. It embodies all of her negative emotions and proceeds to go on a rampage before being stopped. This happens several more times whenever Kara is truly stressed, though in a variation on the usual, Dark!Kara becomes more controllable and less evil each time it happens.

* HasAType: Her crushes on Dick Grayson and Brainiac 5 are indicative that Kara has a thing for intellectual, responsible-leader types.
* HeelFaceTurn: Dark!Kara starts out as a monster who was prepared to murder her cousin in the name of Darkseid.

* MagicSkirt: Always covered up no matter what.



* PantyShot: Though her skirt might have been a MagicSkirt considering that is covered anything at all most of the time, when it really physically couldn't. When Jamal Igle took over art duties, he ''finally'' gave her some shorts.

* {{Retcon}}: That thing about her father raising her as an assassin and having her stand around naked all the time? It was just a hallucination she experienced due to latent Kryptonite poisoning.
