* Showing just how far she's come and calling out her mother on her torture of Reactron at the end of ''New Krypton''. Keep in mind that Reactron had killed her father and tried to rape and torture her and her friends, but Kara still stands up for the idea that torturing him is wrong.

to:

* In Supergirl vol. #5 issue #22, Kara thinks her cousin is about to lecture her after her latest mess-up, and she interrupts him to remind him he isn't her father, she's trying to learn to be better, and she doesn't need his validation. And then Superman cuts her off to say "I know." He agrees that she doesn't need his approval, she isn't in his shadow and she's learning from her mistakes and becoming a better hero and person.

!!Pre-Crisis
* Pre-Crisis ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' died during the Crisis and her existence was forgotten when the universe rebooted itself. Post-Crisis Superman didn't even know he had a cousin until a new Kara Zor-El was introduced in ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'', almost twenty years later. However, after the events of Convergence, post-Crisis Superman knows of his pre-Crisis cousin [[spoiler:''and'' he helped to avert her death.]]

* Power Girl, her adult self from an AlternateUniverse, saving her life and then bonding with her. Usually, when two superheroes meet, there's a slugfest, but Kara and Kara touch and are immediately assaulted with each others' memories. There's a bit of teasing ("You don't think that outfit is a little too revealing?"/"I got it out of your closet!"), but they end up liking and admiring each other so much. It's especially sweet because Power Girl was earlier shown going out of her way to avoid Supergirl, not wanting to cause some kind of paradoxical explosion.

Added DiffLines:

* It is blatantly implied the angelic being who visited Linda Danvers at one point, claiming to be her guardian angel, was in fact the ''original'' Supergirl, the Pre-Crisis Kara Zor-El. Keep in mind that ''Many Happy Returns'' had Linda actually meet Kara chronologically before she arrived on the Pre-Crisis Earth-One. The story arc had a very BittersweetEnding when Linda was forced to send Kara back to what would be her eventual death during the Crisis, but the implications that this Kara had been watching over Linda all her life shows that Kara never held it against Linda over what happened. Even as someone who no one remembered and never existed in this universe, Kara is still finding ways to be a hero.

* The Matrix Supergirl has always struggled with a WhatMeasureIsAHuman quality. In the end, she comes across the wholly corrupted and evil cultist version of Linda Danvers and sacrifices her life to save her. This example inspires Linda Danvers to abandon the ways of evil and become Supergirl in her place.

to:

* The Matrix Supergirl proves her heroism by sacrificing herself for the "Incorrigible" Linda Danvers. What is an incorrigible? It is a person who ''God himself'' says has no hope of redemption (but, given Peter David's religious beliefs, turn out to have "outs" even for them). Matrix, by sacrificing herself, proves capable of inspiring Linda to become a hero in Matrix's place. This is doubly poignant because the Matrix Supergirl has always struggled with a her WhatMeasureIsAHuman quality. In the end, she comes across the wholly corrupted and evil cultist version of Linda Danvers and sacrifices her life to save her. This example inspires Linda Danvers to abandon the ways of evil and become Supergirl in her place.status.

* The Linda Danvers Supergirl journeys back to the Pre-Crisis DC continuity in order to prevent the Kara Zor-El Supergirl from dying in the Crisis on Infinite Earths. She meets the Pre-Crisis Superman and tries to BlatantLies give an excuse for where she's from (which is Kara's Pre-Crisis origin). Superman pretends to buy it only to eventually accept her over the course of a number of years before falling in love. Given Lois Lane was written as not the capable and formidable woman she would be in the Golden and Modern continuities, this Superman falls for Linda and they agree to marry. Eventually, they a child and Linda is willing to die because she's had a good life.
