An artificial 'protoplasmic' lifeform, Matrix was the only survivor from a pocket universe destroyed by super-powered Kryptonian criminals despite Superman (Kal-El/Clark Kent)'s assistance.

Superman took the wounded Matrix with him back to his universe. Unsure of itself, the shapeshifter began to model itself after Superman. It also assumed the role of Clark Kent briefly when the real Superman was in self imposed exile in outer space. Eventually, Superman returned and Matrix, still locked in Superman's image, banished herself into outer space. She was found by Maxima and Draaga, who mistook her for the real Superman. During a fight with Draaga, she shifted back into her Supergirl image. Both Draaga and Matrix were then taken to Warworld and brainwashed by Brainiac into serving him.[1]

'Mae' eventually took the identity of Supergirl.

She met Lex Luthor and allied herself with him. In her universe, Luthor had been a brave and honorable man and she assumed that he was similar. Supergirl became Luthor's bodyguard and lover, often coming into conflict with Superman. Eventually, she discovered that Luthor had been attempting to clone an army based off of her. Upon discovering this, she uncovered the full nature of Luthor's duplicity and ended their relationship.

She got along very well with the Kents and briefly stayed with them in Smallville. Matrix also briefly joined the Teen Titans after helping them defeat an evil version of Raven.

After Superman's battle with Doomsday, she posed as Clark Kent to preserve his secret identity.

Matrix had promised to find a missing woman, Linda Danvers. Linda had fallen in with cultists and was to be sacrificed. She was stabbed repeatedly by Buzz. Matrix bonded itself to the dying Linda, forming a new being--Supergirl (Linda Danvers).
