The series spanned 67 issues and 2 annuals. After some ''very shaky'' beginnings the book became well regarded. The Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle's issues are considered one of the best runs of the character.

Since then Supergirl's basic identity in Franchise/TheDCU has held steady as Kara Zor-El. Confusion didn't end there though as her own named title was prone to retconning Kara's personal backstory on Krypton every three issues or so under a string of writers before ''finally'' settling down some 30 issues in. This roughly coincided with being brought into the extended [[BatFamilyCrossover New Krypton]] storyline, dealing with several hundred Kryptonians appearing on planet Earth led by Supergirl's parents. The book finally managed to become well regarded and is now a stable part of the Superman Family of comics. Supergirl also appeared in ''Supergirl and the ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes'', in which she was stuck a thousand years in the future with the Legion (having made the TimeTravel trip during a TimeSkip in her own book, and then getting LaserGuidedAmnesia before she returned). To top it off, 2009 saw a toony-style miniseries aimed at kids, called ''Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures In the 8th Grade,'' which was ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. [[WordOfGod The original writer says]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen he had plans to write sequels retelling her pre-Crisis story (her time in the Legion ''et al''), taking her up to the 12th Grade]].

* Additionally, in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' Paul Dini and Bruce Timm wanted to use the original Kara Zor-El, instead of the then-current Supergirl (Matrix/Linda Danvers in the comics), but they were denied by DC Comics, due to the then-current "Superman is the ''only'' survivor of Krypton" edict. She was also supposed to appear in the third seasons of ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperheroes'' and ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', but both shows were cancelled.
