I was willing to negotiate with you at one point, but watching you destroy an entire planet and everyone on it because theyir "offering" was insufficient made me sick to my stomach. Anyone who is capable of such evil has made my list!
I've grown. Seen other worlds. There is more in the universe than the needs of one people--even our own. Father can't accept that. His desperation to save our people led to their destruction. He's changed. He'd sacrifice anything to undo his failure. No matter what he says, this is not for me.
My powers are stronger than ever. Too strong. I feel like I'm going out of my skin. Nervous. Can't focus. I should have Dr. Veritas examine me. And I will... But right now it's dangerous to be Supergirl, and...
Have you ever had that feeling... like you've been asleep for a really long time? For what seems like a lifetime. And you have crazy dreams. Things you didn't even know your brain could imagine. But when you finally wake up... the dream isn't over?
I used to be normal, y'know...? I used to have friends, and a family, and a life... All of that died along with Krypton. And it's felt like one nonstop tragedy ever since dad tricked me into that escape pod...
He... He kicked me in the face and... eveything went red, and... It was like... everything I've been through lately... all that pain and loneliness and anger... All of it was in that punch I threw--! But I swear I wasn't trying to kill him. I just... I don't even know... I don't even know my own strength!
My name is Kara Zor-El. I'm from a long-dead planet called Krypton. On Earth they called me "Supergirl" because I could do almost anything--anything except fit in. But those days of loss and loneliness are behind me now. I've finally found where I belong. I belong in the Red Lantern Corps.
His name is Jason Todd. When he wears the helmet, he goes by RED HOOD. In a word, the boy is trouble. My name is Kara Zor-El. When I wear the uniform, I go by SUPERGIRL and I am sick to death of trouble.
I was foolish. Finding myself at that incredible school, learning new things, meeting new people... It was the closest I'd been to a normal life in a long time. I'm beginning to think I'll never learn.
We would still be in that cell if you were not prepared, like you said. Giving people the benefit of the doubt can be dangerous. And you need to be ready. But Psi is in pain, Xa-Du hurt her. I can reach her. I know it. Sometimes you are right, Batgirl. But sometimes, diving in is the only option. Because someone needs you.
Look at my thoughts. You must find what they lack -- mercy. I struggle with it. Every day. But I search. And I do find it. Help me save my friends. But be above Xa-Du. Spare the Phantom Zone. If you are their god, teach them.
I just wish they all understood-- the D.E.O. and the people of the National-- showing my father compassion doesn't mean I'm a threat to them. Power without compassion would make me as dangerous as they think I am.
Agent Ocampo. Why does the D.E.O continue to paint me as a threat? You of all people know better. Have you forgotten I saved you and Cameron Chase from being crushed by a car? And the students here. Not just tonight. Speeding truck, falling glass... even loneliness. I remember their faces and their names. Every single one. I will continue to help, no matter how many guns you point at me. Now. Do you really want to arrest me, Alissa Ocampo?
I look human, Lee... But I am not. When I first got to Earth, I didn't know the culture, the languages. People were scared of me, hated me, too. I was so angry, so confused... but that wasn't me. that was who they were afraid I could be. Other people didn't get to decide who I was.
Don't. Do you think I'm stupid? You can't be my father. Zor-El is dead. He saved me from Krypton's destruction. He saved Argo City, our home! But you... I've fought you before. You tried to kill me! Multiple times!
My name is Kara Zor-El, the Last Daughter of Krypton. My parents sent me to Earth to save my life. But as Supergirl, I choose to do more than survive. I choose to have hope. I choose to inspire and to be inspired. I choose to fight so that today will be better than yesterday. And I choose to believe that together, we can build a brighter, better future. I have to. After all... I'm the Girl of Tomorrow!
Life is complicated. Messy. And has a high body count. We box up our pain, ignore it, and try to move on. "Try" being the operative word. We may even get a moment's peace. Until something comes along... something that rips off that scab and sends all that old pain surging back through you...
An intergalactic dive bar at the outskirts of the galaxy filled with shady characters from all over the universe? I'll take "places I've never expected to be" for 500, Alex. I do take some joy in seeing that Ambush Bug remains startlingly unfunny no matter what planet you're from.
It calls itself Worldkiller-1. It claims to be Kryptonian armor, though it is somehow alive. And like a cosmic parasite, it wants to make me its "host" as part of some twisted, galaxy-wide, genocidal campaign to strengthen alien worlds.
