* TheScrappy: The Post-Crisis Kara Zor-El was this [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2298145.html for some time.]] Traits of hers included: An inordinate amount of time spent [[LetsYouAndHimFight beating up other heroes]], [[DesignatedHero complaining about having to do heroics]] (while wearing the logo of the world's most famous hero on her chest), making [[KickTheDog moves that would instantly mark anyone else as irredeemable]] (like selling the Bottle-City of Kandor to supervillains, then threatening to break PowerGirl's arms for being understandably pissed), [[CreatorsPet receiving constant praise from all those around her]] [[JerkSue despite the above,]] being stronger than Superman (later RetConned), and a solo series plagued by disgustingly bad FanService, {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s, and [[{{Stripperific}} a skirt that was more a belt with a ruffle on it than anything]]. The hatred hit its peak around #14 of said series, when she fought [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]], a thoroughly popular character who had recently been changed into a CardCarryingVillain. The near-unanimous reaction to Kara winning the fight ([[AssPull with a power that had never been seen or hinted at before]]) was, essentially, "[[MisaimedFandom Fuck you, Cass won.]]" Since then, she's been RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap by doing actual heroics and dialing down the JerkAss traits, but it took some time before readers ever really forgot "Super Paris Hilton".

* CompleteMonster: The Post-Crisis version of [[SociopathicSoldier Benjamin Martin Krull]], alias [[NuclearNasty Reactron]], was [[{{Sadist}} never a nice guy]], and is Supergirl's ArchEnemy. His first clash with Supergirl saw a vast amount of property damage and significant casualties, with many survivors suffering from radiation sickness or cancer. It was in the ''ComicBook/NewKrypton'' storyline, however, where Reactron really crossed the line. Having been rebuilt by ComicBook/LexLuthor into a {{cyborg}} with a Gold Kryptonite heart, Reactron invades New Krypton alongside Metallo, depowering and killing numerous Kryptonians, threatening to rape Supergirl, and then murdering her father, Zor-El, in front of her by giving him radiation sickness. Tasked by General Lane with eliminating Supergirl, Flamebird, and Nightwing, Reactron murdered all the soldiers assigned to help him when they expressed doubts about the mission, and did his best to slowly torture Supergirl and Flamebird to death, all while gloating about how fighting two such attractive girls was a dream come true. Captured and tortured by Supergirl's mother, [[KnightTemplar Alura]], Reactron waited until Supergirl came to free him from the torture chamber to reveal that his capture had been a set up and that Luthor had transformed him into a living bomb. [[SuicideAttack Detonating himself]] with [[GoOutWithASmile a smile]], Reactron gives a [[DissonantSerenity serene look]] as he incinerates Alura, the city of Kandor, and the [[EarthShatteringKaboom entire planet]] of New Krypton, [[FinalSolution killing over ninety percent of the population]] in a single fell swoop. A lech, a bully, and a thug at his core, Reactron is a study in just how horrific it can be when somebody like that gets their hands on real power, and has done more to hurt Supergirl than any of her other adversaries, killing her father, her mother, and her entire race in a matter of weeks.

* BrokenBase: Already there is massive criticism over her costume not being the classic skirt. There is also controversy over the fact they are attempting to "sex down" the character into a more kid-sister looking role than Laura Vanderoot's sex bomb in Series/{{Smallville}}.[[/folder]]

Added DiffLines:
** alternatively Kara's friend/mentor is the one who took the omegahedron to use for his own amusement whilst fully aware of potential for misuse/trouble and then gave it to her to play with so it can be argued that he is far more responsible for dooming Argo city than supergirl. Also on earth Kara is basically stranded on a strange world with no money, food or shelter which is why her first night is spent sleeping rough. Infiltrating the school is quite a clever way to gain food and shelter for free. Selene is only interested in romancing Ethan because she mistook the omegahedrons reaction to karas proximity as a sign that Ethan was important somehow to her future plans of world domination and decided that a love spell was the easiest way to get him onside.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Fans of Linda Danvers will refuse to accept how the character was treated in ''Reign in Hell'' and tend to ignore it completely. [[spoiler: That Linda Danvers was damned and allied to Hell.]] Given her entire story was about redemption, this is understandable.
