!!Silver Age
* In ''Superboy (Volume 1) #80'', Kara travels back to the past to meet and play with her young cousin Superboy. She races him to the planet Hebos, and Kal believes he's left her far behind... until he arrives in Hebos and finds Supergirl awaiting him.
-->'''ComicBook/{{Superboy}}:''' How did you, a mere girl, ever get here ahead of me?\\
'''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}:''' You'll just have to get used to the idea that a '''Supergirl''' can be just as super-duper as a '''Superboy'''!
* In ''Superman vol 1 #149'' -an imaginary story in which Lex Luthor managed to kill Superman- Supergirl breaks into the Luthor's lair while he and other criminals are celebrating her cousin's death. Several of them shoot her -even though she has just informed them that she is Superman's cousin- and she suggests that they stop wasting bullets. She arrests Luthor and brings him to Kandor where he is banished to the Phantom Zone. With justice served, Kara swears to carry on her cousin's legacy.
* In ''Action Comics'' issue #285 Kara has to stop an absolutely massive monster which is stomping everything in its path. She can't move it, lift it or damage it... so what she does? She sends a message to the Legion of Super-Heroes requesting a shrinking ray. The thing is, she throws the capsule containing the message so fast that it ''time-travels''.
* In ''Action Comics #286'', Kara faces up to Comicbook/LexLuthor for first time. Not only she comes out on top but also [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/action_286_31_3.jpg she humiliates Lex]].
* In ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica #134'', Supergirl joins the League to help find a missing Superman. They find Despero, one of the worst and oldest enemies of the League... and she trounces him. Firstly [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-r7RkMZ0zyx8/UN3CSbJhNWI/AAAAAAAAVH4/aLvVgA9AKVA/s1600/jla+134-05.jpg she grabs him and throws him hard enough to put him into orbit]], and then [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-KFA-bEU6jaE/UN3CSit9ehI/AAAAAAAAVH8/B12ebfp-Hb4/s1600/jla+134-06.jpg she flies out of the planet, meets Despero in space and knocks him out with one punch]].

!!Bronze Age
* In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'', Clark recruits Kara's help to stop Mongul when the alien overlord appropiates Warworld. In an act of utter badassery, Supergirl hurls herself at the planet at incalculable speed, punching through the star-sized weapon and breaking it down, which gave her cousin a chance to blow it up.
* In ''Superman Family'' #183, Supergirl faces Shyla Kor-Onn, a Phantom Zoner who has stolen a fraction of her powers. As brawling in the Fortress of Solitude, Kara lets Shyla hit her, so the backlash throws the woman back into the path of PhantomZone Projector's ray, and she's sent her back in the Phantom Zone.
-->'''Supergirl:''' Luck had nothing to do with it, Shyla... I knew you couldn't control your flying ability yet, so I let you get in that last punch... Then I used Newton's Law of Motion-- for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction-- It forced you back into the Projector's ray!
* In ''Superman Family'' #187 Supergirl gets ambushed in deep-space by Klax-Ar, a lunatic who managed to reverse-engineer a ComicBook/{{Superboy}} robot into a vehicle with Kal-El's same abilities, and now wants to steal her Kryptonian powers. Kara remembers she and Superman stopped using robots because Earth's pollution gummed up their circuits, so she lures him to Earth. Once Klax-Ar 's sled starts breaking down, she punches him ''across New York'' and takes him back to a planet prison.
* In ''Superman'' Volume 1 #338, Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} accidentally hits himself with his shrinking ray, and he pleads with Supergirl to save him, but [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pScx8BN4h3s/SQcs5LyKRiI/AAAAAAAABds/PkQTfwvrabE/s1600-h/superman+338+-08.jpg Supergirl coolly states that the enlarging ray has not enough energy left to save Superman, Kandor and him, so Brainiac is out of luck]]. Even Superman begs her use the ray to save Brainiac, [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_pScx8BN4h3s/SQcsz6v8owI/AAAAAAAABdk/GD76xYl-w1g/s1600-h/superman+338+-09.jpg and she replies: "Cousin... NO!"]]
* In ''Superman Family'' issue #204, Enchantress is draining Supergirl's powers. Supergirl manages to run away by streaking into space and then remembers Enchantress said her spell depends on an astral alignment being exactly right. So she ''kicks the Moon out of orbit'' and once June Moon's spell is disrupted, ''kicks the Moon back into place''. In [[http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.com.es/2011/05/back-issue-box-superman-family-204-and.html a review's words]], you can consider it awesome, funny, dumb or all of it:
-->In a perfect moment of late Silver Age lunacy, Supergirl literally kicks the moon slightly out of its orbit. That is one mighty kick! You either love moments like these for their lunacy or hate them for their stupidity.
* In ''Superman Family'' issue #208 Linda has an argument with New Athens Experimental School administrator Benjamin Pierce, who calls her on the carpet again for keeping odd hours. Linda reminds him that her contract says she makes her own hours and no one has ever complained about her or her performance... but him. The argument escalates until Pierce insults her in public, and she angrily quits, giving Pierce a piece of her mind in the process.
-->'''Linda:''' That tears it! This school is experimental-- it's one of the words in its name... But with close-minded, backward-thinking buffoons like you in charge... the "experiment" is a failure... it's bombed-- as they say in show biz!
* In ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperHeroes'' classic StoryArc ''The Great Darkness Saga'', [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_tW3g8zCM6c0/TU20053fQ-I/AAAAAAAABf4/5euaP9-E9ak/s1600/lsh%2B294%2Bsuper%2Bboy%2Bgirl.jpg both Superboy and Supergirl take on]] Comicbook/{{Darkseid}}. And although Superboy is taken out quickly, Supergirl lays a good whupping on Darkseid.''[[http://bronzeagebabies.blogspot.com.es/2011/02/legion-of-super-heroes-great-darkness.html Reviewed here]]''.
* In ''Legion of Super-Heroes'' (Vol 2) #303, the Emerald Empress has taken command of Weber's World and is steering it on a collision course with the United Planets' main fleet base... so she head-butts it off course.
* In ''Franchise/WonderWoman'' saga "Judgment in Infinity", all heroines of Earth-One and Earth-Two join to help Wonder Woman take down the "Adjudicator". In ''Wonder Woman'' #292 Supergirl is taken to Earth-X and [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-BFjbO-t6yJg/T27zr950z0I/AAAAAAAAPDM/3lzvQA3It9g/s1600/ww+292-07.jpg crushes an entire Nazi army]]. As [[http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.com.es/2012/03/back-issue-box-wonder-woman-292.html a reviewer]] puts it: "Seriously, how awesome is it to see Supergirl smashing Nazi Panzer tanks?"
* In ''Supergirl'' Vol. 2 #15, Kara fights Blackstarr, a reality-warper who at a point attempts to crush Supergirl between black holes... and Kara tanks her attack.
* In ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 1982}} Supergirl vol. 2]]'' #17, several thugs were trying to get away after committing a kidnapping. She stepped in the way of their car, stood her ground and let the vehicle hit her (it helped that those thugs were dumb enough to try to run over her).
-->'''Supergirl:''' [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/3/33/Supergirl_Vol_2_17.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20081031045918 When I say "Stop"... I mean STOP!]]
* Pre-Crisis Kara's DyingMomentOfAwesome, which singlehandedly set the Antimonitor's plans back an immeasurable amount, saved Superman's life, and ultimately, all of creation.

!!Post-Crisis
* The Carnivore, the First Vampire of the DC Universe ([[ContinuityDrift at least in Peter David's run]]) and a [[DimensionLord Demon Lord who ruled his own dimension]] has managed to take over the universe by [[RefugeInAudacity blackmailing God/The Presence]] with the souls of the Earth Angels. This proves to be a XanatosGambit on the part of Gods as the Linda Danvers Supergirl manages to turn the resulting CrapsackWorld on the Carnivore and defeat the omnipotent being with the power of love.
* In Supergirl vol 4 #79, Rebel tries to harass Kara after trying to kill her and Linda Danvers. Supergirl proceeds to tell him that he is a pathetic, insignificant nuisance with delusions of grandeur and she is a very busy and very angry PhysicalGod. He runs away.
-->'''Rebel:''' So whattaya say we just finish this off with one final dance?\\
'''Supergirl:''' Don't you get it, Rebel? You're not '''important'''! You '''never''' were! You were just -- something to '''do'''! Something for Supergirl and me to bounce off of for a while until people and events of '''real consequence''' came along! Look -- Here's the problem. You've done some bad things, but I'm really, really upset right now. So much so that, honestly, I don't trust myself. And if you attack me or I attack you... I will '''hurt''' you. I'll hurt you worse than you've ever been hurt in your whole life. I can carve you up as soon as look at you. I can break you, boil you, freeze you. I can do things you can't '''imagine'''. Things '''I''' can't imagine, until I have to. And then I'll improvise. Part of me is hoping you '''will''' attack. And part of me is praying -- for your sake, and my '''own''' peace of mind -- that you don't. It's up to '''you'''.\\
'''Rebel:''' You doing that? Causing a storm to roll in?\\
'''Supergirl:''' Maybe.
* Linda Danvers manages to take over the position of the Pre-Crisis Supergirl despite having only a fraction of her powers for decades, protecting the universe in hopes of sacrificing herself for the fifteen-year-old girl she'd known only a couple of weeks. The fact her noble nature wins over the Pre-Crisis Superman into loving her makes her ''Many Happy Returns'' arc a truly impressive one. Too bad it ends on a BittersweetEnding verging on DownerEnding.
* The Linda Danvers defeat of Xenon, a being who has killed hundreds of Supergirl's across countless timelines, is a definite one.
* In ''Superman/Batman'' issue #9, Batman is watching Kara stealthily... until she turns around and tells she isn't impressed by his ninja antics.
-->'''Kara:''' Try that bogeyman stuff with somebody else. I can hear your heart beat from forty yards off. (muttering) If you '''had''' a heart...
* In ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'' #25, Darkseid sticks Superman on the Source Wall (the edge of the universe). However, Superman is freed by... an army of ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}s'': original Silver Age Kara Zor-El, ''Comicbook/PowerGirl'', Linda Danvers, Cir-El and post-Crisis Kara Zor-El leading them all.
* In ''Tales of the Sinestro Corps: Superman Prime'', Franchise/{{Superman}}, ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' and ''Comicbook/PowerGirl'' face off against Superboy Prime... and Prime dumbly yells that [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_M7D1hE_0cz0/TTXbKomfTlI/AAAAAAAAEN4/q2N9DbYaCXY/s800/PrimeSupe03.jpg Superman is afraid of fighting him because he needs help of girls]]. Naturally, [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_M7D1hE_0cz0/TTXbKq3nBWI/AAAAAAAAEN8/XfQUhbadeqY/s800/PrimeSupe04.jpg Supergirl in Power Girl]] decide [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_M7D1hE_0cz0/TTXbKg_ufiI/AAAAAAAAEOA/1gKFIEOKkMs/s800/PrimeSupe05.jpg punch him out of the planet]] for his sexist -and brainless- putdown. [[http://crisisonearthprime.blogspot.com.es/2011/01/friday-night-fights-fight-like-girl.html Summarized here]].
* At the end of "Way of the World", Kara runs into Clayface. She lets the mud monster hit her for a bit before disabusing him of any notion he's a match for her (Kara freezes him solid, flies him way, WAY up and lets him drop).
-->'''Supergirl:''' I'm sorry, but you seem confused. Just 'cuz I let you land a few easy blows— that doesn't mean we're having a fair fight!\\
'''Clayface:''' Wh— What are you... d-doing...?\\
'''Supergirl:''' To call you "lame" and "ever so slightly beneath me" would be the understatement of the century. But it's been a bad few weeks. A shame you just happened to be the whipping boy I was looking for.
* In "Who Is Superwoman?" Reactron nullifies Supergirl's powers and thinks he's already won. Then Kara proceeds to kick his butt with her bare hands and an iron rod as pointing out how ridiculous is the thinking that a girl whose training has been overseen by the Earth's three greatest heroes is defenseless:
-->'''Supergirl:''' I trained with Batman. With the Amazons. I know first level Klurkor. Just because I can't use heat vision doesn't mean I'm helpless.
* In ''Supergirl (Vol 5)'' #50, Insect Queen has possessed Lana Lang again and has built a huge hive filled with giant insects in the center of Metropolis. Supergirl and Gangbuster try to sneak in undetected but are spotted by the swarm. Before engaging they have the next exchange:
-->'''Supergirl:''' Wait! I hear them... Rao. They know we're here.\\
'''Gangbuster:''' Okay. Here we go. You ready to get the crap kicked out of you in order to save the world?\\
'''Supergirl:''' (smiling) Always.
* During the finale of ''Comicbook/NewKrypton'', Ursa has been visiting one capital after another and butchering world leaders. Arriving at the White House she kills Codename: Liberty and heads inside, only to be intercepted by Kara, who engages her in battle inside the Oval Office, and with an assist from Superboy and Krypto, brings her rampage to a halt.
** Not Kara's only CMOA during that arc, either. Towards the end of it, Kara leads the charge into General Lane's headquarters, defeats Superwoman/Lucy in a couple of punches, and then takes down Lane himself.
*** Her first defeat of Superwoman, in her own book, is even better. After a long, gruelling fight, Kara pins Lucy, and tears off her S-Shield, declaring she has no right to wear it.
** Calling out her mother on all of her bullshit and actually trying to save Reactron, even though god knows, he doesn't deserve it.
** Earlier in the arc, during ''Last Stand of New Krypton'', refusing to let Brainiac 5 sacrifice himself for her sake, and carrying him along under one arm, while she smashes through the original Brainiac's defenses with her free hand.
* Talking Bizarrogirl into [[GrewASpine growing a spine]] and saving Bizarroworld.
* Kara going into UnstoppableRage and laying a massive beatdown on Doomsday during ''Reign of Doomsday''. In ''Comicbook/SupermanBatman Annual #5'', she comes face to face with Doomsday. And she is actually glad because she wanted a chance to take him -the monster who killed her cousin- on one-on-one. And then [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-rZPp6fU38Dc/TZ2hU0vafII/AAAAAAAALgU/j-hROlN5mCM/s1600/sb+ann+5-10.jpg she does]] and [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-qGTS6Gxprnw/TZ2hVXVnGZI/AAAAAAAALgY/vR11S0y5Fow/s1600/sb+ann+5-11.jpg she cuts loose]].
-->''Kara:'' "I've been hoping for this...dreaming of the day when I'd get another crack at you. Not me and two dozen Kryptonians. Not me and my cousin. Just me. Supergirl! And Rao, it feels so good!"
* In ''Comicbook/ActionComics #904'', Supergirl informs the Cyborg-Doomsday that [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zjOtX2BR_Eg/TlYufuX75OI/AAAAAAAAMp4/9j923tML9co/s1600/action+904-01.jpg he will not hurt her home]] because he will '''NOT''' get past her.
-->'''Supergirl:''' Haven't you figured it out yet?! You don't get past '''ME'''-- You don't get to hurt my '''HOME''' -- And you are going -- DOWN!
* When ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} stands up to and defeats her absurdly powerful, abusive boyfriend, Powerboy.
--> (''after Supergirl is brutally beaten up by Powerboy, including having her face '''dragged down the side of a skyscraper''', she wakes up in a bed next to a StalkerShrine devoted to her, bound in powerful, alien-tech restraints'')
--> '''Powerboy''': "Look, I'm just going to lay it all out because honesty is important in a strong relationship... I was born on Apokolips. Taken from the Armagetto Slums to serve [[{{ComicBook/Darkseid}} You-Know-Who]]... [[TrainingFromHell He made me strong]], trained me in the ways of the Earth so I could [[TheMole come here as a "hero" and]]... Well, it doesn't really matter anymore, because it changed the the day you came to Apokolips. [[LoveAtFirstSight The most beautiful thing I had ever seen]]. Ever ''felt''. From that moment, I knew I had found my "Missing Half". I knew we would be together. And then you left... I couldn't eat. Sleep. Think. I knew that my true destiny wasn't with Darkseid and his stupid plans... So I followed you across the universe. I watched you try so hard to fit in, to find your way. All I wanted to do was hold you. Tell you how beautiful you were. But I knew you weren't ready to hear it... Sometimes we have to fall all the way down before someone can lift us up. You could be something so special, Kara... But you're lost. You're lost and you're too weak to find your way alone. Whenever you try... the monster in you comes out. Is this what you what to be?" (''cups her face'') "You need someone to take care of you, Kara. Someone who ''loves'' you to build to up... To make you into something you can be proud of. I love you, Kara. We can be perfect together, if you'll just let me fix you."\\
'''Supergirl''': (''[[ShutUpHannibal destroys her restraints and burns his hand with heat vision]]'') "We need to break up."\\
'''Powerboy''': "Aaaaaigh! What did you do?!"\\
'''Supergirl''': "You hit me. You said you loved me... And you '''hit me'''." (''punches him through a wall to the outside'')\\
'''Powerboy''': "Y-You made me hit you! Because you don't listen, like now! Kara! I'm warning you! Stop it or I'll do it again! I'll hurt you again! [[StayInTheKitchen You can be happy if you just do what I tell you!]] I--" (''Supergirl rips his house from its foundation and rises into the sky'') "Kara, I love you. Don't you want someone take care of you!?"\\
'''Supergirl''': "No one who says he loves you should hit you, '''ever'''." (''drops his house on him'')\\
'''Powerboy''': (''FlashStep into outer space, pulls out his Father Box'') "Ouch. Heh... Heh... Got some fight to her... Gonna have to work on that... Next time... And there ''will'' be a next time. Try to drop a house on me now. Father Box... Honey..."\\
'''Supergirl''': (''FlashStep up to him, [[GroinAttack knees him in the groin]]'') "I out-flew Superman, "Honey". We're not done." (''grabs him by the scruff of his neck'') "I don't know if you can hear me, so read my lips... Don't call me. Don't talk to me. Don't look at me... Or I'll break every bone in your body."
* In [[http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.com.es/2011/04/bullet-review-justice-league-of-america.html "Justice League of America 80-Page Giant 2011"]], Supergirl and Wonder Woman team up to fight several demons in Hell.

!!Post-Flashpoint
* Kara and Power Girl teaming up in issues 19 and 20. Armies of soldiers clad in powered armor, genetic experiments and mad [=AIs=] against two Kryptonian girls? Easy as pie.
* In issue 23, Cyborg Superman sends robot replicas of [[ContinuityCavalcade everyone]] from Supergirl's memories to stop her from escaping. It is a sight to see her tear through the horde of robot knockoffs. She rips fake Superman in half, crushes fake Wonder Woman with asteroids, incinerates fake Siobhan with heat vision, and wrecks many more ripoffs before she's overwhelmed and captured by Cyborg Superman. She probably would've destroyed them all if it wasn't for her [[WorkingThroughTheCold kryptonite poisoning acting up again]].
* In issue 24, when her mind was trapped in the I'noxia collective, her thirst for revenge against Cyborg Superman allowed her to will herself free and forms a humongous, incredibly powerful version of herself out of the collective's nanobots to get through Brainiac's forces and exact her revenge.
-->'''Supergirl:''' [[BadassBoast Cyborg Superman, show yourself! You stole my flesh, but in so doing made me anew! Do you see?! Fists with the mass of moons, legs with the heat of suns! I have the power of creation at my fingertips and I will not stop until I have forged a world of misery]]!
* Supergirl pummelling Lobo in issue 28.
* And then in Supergirl 35 she [[spoiler:gave up her Red Lantern ring, died, was reborn thanks to sun radiation and beat up the living Kryptonian armor.]]
* In Justice League United #3, Supergirl first runs into Lobo after the events of ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton''. Back then he got her so mad that she flew off the handle and became a Red Lantern. Here? She stands up calmly after he has sucker-punched her from behind, grabs his neck, states "Lobo... I really hate you, you know that?" in a completely deadpan tone and punches him across a valley. She ''really'' got over him.

!!Rebirth
* In Supergirl Rebirth #1, Supergirl emerges out of the sun fully re-powered, flies back to Earth to save people, fights a Kryptonian werewolf and manages to talk him down.
* In ''ComicBook/BatgirlRebirth'' first Annual, Kara Zor-El and Barbara Gordon team up... for first time in over thirty years! All instances of Post-Crisis SG/BG team-ups prior to that issue featured different characters or Barbara acting as Oracle.
* In ''Superman: Revenge'', Cyborg Superman puts a Superman Revenge Squad together. Cyborg Superman, Metallo, Zod, Mongul, Blanque and Eradicator gang up on Superman and are about to kill him when Supergirl swoops in on them and takes her cousin away before they can stop her. During the ensuing battle between the Superman Family and the Superman Revenge Squad, Kara fights Cyborg Superman off, knocks Zod down and curbstomps Metallo. At the end, Cyborg Superman gets stuck in the PhantomZone and both cousins agree he can stay in there.
* In ''The Girl of No Tomorrow'', Supergirl fights the Emerald Empress. Kara and the [[ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}} Emerald Eye of Ekron]] engage in an optic beam war, and Kara appears to be winning when Indigo turns up all of sudden and smashes Kara into a wall. Then both Emerald Empress and Indigo attempt to blast Supergirl into oblivion. As withstanding waves of destructive emerald and purple energy, Kara's XRayVision scans the Eye and reasons it must be the Empress' source of power. Then she quickly powerdives Indigo and turns towards the Empress. The Eye does its best to incinerate her, but Supergirl inches forward in spite of the energy blast burning her and pushing her backwards, grabs the Eye and ''rips it in half''.
-->'''Emerald Empres:''' Stay back! I'll '''incinerate''' you! How.. How are you even '''standing'''?!\\
'''Supergirl:''' I... thought you '''knew''' me, Empress... If-- ngah-- there is one thing I '''never''' do...\\
'''Emerald Empress:''' '''Stop''', damn you! '''No'''! You're '''hurting''' my '''eye'''! You '''can't'''!\\
'''Supergirl:''' ... It is '''stop'''.\\
(tears the Eye in half)

!!Others
* In ''ComicBook/Injustice2'' issue #26, a death squad is about to gun down innocent civilians. Kara flies in the way and catches ''all'' the bullets.
* In ''ComicBook/GothamCityGarage'' issue #4, Jason Todd sets off a bomb to take Clayface with him. Kara flings him away, embraces the bomb and tanks the explosion (keep in mind she didn't knew about her inhumane endurance beforehand). After shooing Jason away she lifts an overturned truck with such a bright smile that a hardened warrior like Big Barda can't help but smiling.
* In ''ComicBook/Trinity2008'' issue #14, the solar power of super-villain Sun-Chained-In-Ink has become out of control. Before he blows up and takes the entire planet with him, Kara takes him out of the planet and throws him far, far away where his inner star explodes safely.
