Supergirl Age

#1 Posted by EmmaGrace (1024 posts) - - Show Bio

So I'm not a big DC reader, and this may be some super obvious answer that I was completely oblivious to. I wanted to know and searched it a couple different ways and couldn't find it.

So, how old is Supergirl?

In the new DCnU no clue but I'd say early twenties.

In the previous universe she was either 17 or 18. Although she at times seemed older than that. Not sure about DCnU.

Is she suppose to be the same age as Power Girl? Or vice versa.

@EmmaGrace: Power Girl has traditionally been an older version of Supergirl, just like Kal-L was older than our Superman.

@EmmaGrace: well before the relaunch, she was a younger version of PG however now, she seems a bit older

She's still much younger than some of the other females, such as Zatanna, Wonder Woman, Black Canary, etc?

I'm considering picking up Supergirl #1...

Well before you do, what comics have you liked, specific issues or storylines. Supergirl is really hit and miss for people(For me was a miss)

@TheCrowbar: I'm a bit new to comic reading, but I heard it's great for people who enjoyed The Hunger Games, which I absolutely loved.

There was some bizarre element where she was 17... then had a birthday... and was 17. It was strange. But not all that essential to clarify for the stories that were told, so it went largely unaddressed. No note of it in the newest issue, probably not going to come up until a who's who or bio-profile type page.

@EmmaGrace: what Crowbar said, some might not like it, personally i loved it, but i say read the first issue or two, if you like it there you go, if not, then no real harm done

Well, technically, before the relaunch she was in her fifties since she was a teen when Superman was born. Then she was in suspended animation which halted her aging process so she retained the physical appearance of a teen-aged Kryptonian female.

I want to know her age too. Does anybody know her age?Would DC even let her age into her 20's? Supergirl is way more memorable as a teenager.
