* AndIMustScream: In the New 52, after capturing Kara, Tycho held her in a stasis beam near from a chunk of kryptonite. She was in incredible pain but she couldn't scream or even move.
-->'''Kara:''' Kryptonyte. a radioactive element lethal to the touch. Just being close to it -- like I'm being held now -- can be fatal. I'm screaming, but no sound comes out. I'm crying, but there are no tears. My skin is burning off, but there are no flames. All there is... All I am now... is the pain.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Blackmail}}: In the New 52 issues, Tycho tried to blackmail Kara: he'd give her pod's crystal back in exchange for a drop of her blood. It was a bad, bad idea...
* BlackmailBackfire: In the New 52, Tycho tried to blackmail Kara. She blew his space station up and retrieved her pod's crystal.

* BullyingADragon: It's worrying how many people thinks that it's a good idea annoying a Kryptonian:
** In the New 52, Tycho has seen what Supergirl is capable of... and he tries to capture her, blackmail her, hit her... and it never ends up well for him.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Kara often undergoes some kind of character development:
** Pre-Crisis Kara goes from being a naive teenager who idolized her cousin to a young woman who was determined to be her own person and figure out what kind of life she wanted to lead.
** Post-Crisis Kara was characterized as a whiny, fickle, immature brat who didn't deserve to wear the S-shield for a while until she decided that she needed to stop being a jerk and truly change. From that point on, she started to mature. Later on, it was explained that her weird behavior, her mood swings, her contradictory memories, her inability to focus on what she was doing... was due to kryptonite poisoning.
** New 52 Kara was a teen ball of anger and abandonment issues who felt trapped in a strange land where she didn't fit in and longed for returning to Krypton. After the "Red Daughter of Krypton" and "Crucible Academy" arcs she's accepted that Earth is her new home and she's calmer and more controlled.


Added DiffLines:

* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: When Tycho tries to blackmail Kara in New 52 Supergirl issue 4, she shoots her heat vision at the floor. He mocks her aim... until he's warned that her eye beams blasted the space station's central core.
-->'''Tycho:''' Ha! Nice shot! Might want to work on your aim, though.\\
'''Assistant:''' Mr. Tycho! She wasn't firing at you! She was aiming for the central core!\\
'''Tycho:''' But that's impossible! How could she possibly--?\\
'''Kara:''' (thinking) I don't need to speak their language to know that I guessed right.


Added DiffLines:

* PunishedForSympathy: When Kara was being held in stasis near from a kryptonite rock, one of the employees of Tycho released her. His boss got him killed.


Added DiffLines:

* UnderestimatingBadassery: In the New 52, Kara constantly meets people who think she's nothing but an easily manipulable, stupid little girl... even if they're aware of her Kryptonian heritage. She always shows them she isn't a pushover.

* KangarooCourt: Zigzagged in the post-Crisis "New Krypton" arc. When Kara brings Reactron to Kryptonian justice, Alura coldly informs him that he'll be judged, found guilty and executed. However she ''intends'' to put him on trial rather than lynching him, unlike a lot of Kryptonians. ''However'' during a preliminary hearing a judge questions the trial's legality since Reactron hasn't been extradited lawfully, and Alura dismisses his concerns. ''However'', when a lynch mob breaks into the building, she protects Reactron.
