Alex attended [[Midvale High School]], during which her relationship with Kara became frosty as she blamed the latter for her father's death and resented having to be her "earthly ambassador". Alex completely put her focus into her studies and social life, becoming a popular girl alongside Josie. In high school, Alex met and befriended [[Vicki Donahue]], who also became a member of her clique.
 
   
In 2007, Alex began failing calculus, but was too embarrassed to tell her family or friends. Alex's classmate, [[Kenny Li]], then offered to tutor her in secret, which she accepted. Alex and Kenny would study in the nearby woods and overtime, became close friends. However, Alex never acknowledged Kenny outside of their tutoring sessions, always dismissing him as "Kara's friend", which she would grow to regret.

Alex completely put her focus into her studies and social life, becoming a popular girl alongside Josie. In high school, she met and befriended [[Vicki Donahue]], who also became a member of her clique.
   
When Kenny was murdered, Alex and Kara worked together to investigate his death, in which they discovered that Kenny learned of Josie's secret affair with their history teacher, [[Samuel Bernard|Mr. Bernard]]. Despite Josie's protests, Alex reported this to the authorities. While she and Kara were walking home that night, they were almost killed by a speeding car, whom they believed to be Mr. Bernard. Shortly after though, Alex found out that Josie was with Mr. Bernard at the time of the attack, meaning he wasn't the culprit. She rushed to school and spoke to Sheriff [[Ronald Collins]], who turned out to be the real killer and he held her at gunpoint. When Kara tried to contact her, Alex managed to reveal she was at Midvale High before Collins took her phone. Collins took Alex to the boiler room, where he planned to kill her as well, but Alex showed no fear, knowing that Kara was coming for her. At that moment, Kara arrived and knocked out Collins, saving Alex's life and making the pair's relationship whole. Later following Collins' arrest, Alex's friendship with Josie fell apart and she was kicked out of the popular clique, but ultimately didn't mind much. Kara revealed to Alex that Kenny had a picture of her flying, but kept it a secret.<ref name="Midvale" />

Despite Alex's fallout with Josie and the popular clique, her friendship with Vicki persisted for some time. Alex loved sleeping over at Vicki's house, in which they would share a bed. However, Alex soon started to develop feelings towards her friend, much to her confusion and alarm. As a result, she began subconsciously pushing Vicki away by starting fights with her over almost everything, even if it was stupid or insignificant, until the pair eventually drifted apart. This memory hurt Alex so much that she repressed it for years, consequently not coming out as a lesbian until much later in life.<ref name="Changing">{{Ep|Changing}}</ref>

After graduation, Alex pursued an MD/PhD at [[National City University]].<ref name="Manhunter" /> While there, she had a boyfriend, Capraro, who would write poems about him and Alex fighting and they allegedly broke up because of it.<ref name="Chapter 9">{{Com|Our Backs to the Wall}}</ref> Alex also conducted research in genetic engineering at Stanford.<ref name="Livewire" />[[File:Alex meets "Hank Henshaw".png|thumb|250px|Alex first meets "Hank" after she is arrested.]]

Despite her intelligence and academic results, Alex grew up a troubled young adult who used hard-partying and heavy drinking to cope with her insecurities and troubles, including her latent homosexuality and the loss of her father. This escalated to the point where she began falling behind in school and was placed on academic probation. In 2012, after a night of drinking and clubbing led to a DUI and her arrest, Alex was visited by "[[J'onn J'onzz|Hank Henshaw]]" in jail. He offered her a position at the [[D.E.O.]], assuring Alex that she is special just like Kara and pointing out that she owed it to her father to be the person "Hank" knew she could be.<ref name="Manhunter" />

In 2015, Alex had to attend a conference in [[Geneva]] but Flight 237, on which she was traveling, was sabotaged by [[Vartox]] in an attempt to kill her and other [[D.E.O.]] agents onboard. Though the plane was saved by Kara from crashing, Alex later berated her sister for doing so, angry that she had revealed herself to the world, and now there is no turning back. Kara was later captured by the D.E.O. and taken back to [[D.E.O. headquarters|their base]], where Alex revealed her identity as a D.E.O. agent. After Kara was defeated and almost killed by Vartox, Alex rescued her. revealing that the only way that the [[Fort Rozz (prison)|Fort Rozz]] escapees could get back at Kara's [[Alura Zor-El|mother]] was through her now. She later went to [[Kara Danvers' apartment|Kara's apartment]], apologetically explaining herself, and encouraging Kara to be a hero. The two then went to the D.E.O. base, where they convinced Director "[[J'onn J'onzz|Hank Henshaw]]" to let Kara defeat Vartox.<ref name="Pilot" />

A week later, Alex along with the rest of the D.E.O., tested the limits of Kara's abilities, firing missiles into the sky at her. Afterward, Alex debated with Kara over the necessity of the tests before Kara had to leave to stop a fire raging at [[National City Port]]. Days later, the D.E.O. investigated the theft and murder of a security guard on Plastino Chemicals factory, with Alex calling Supergirl to assist in the investigation. Later at the D.E.O. base in the training room, Alex defeated Kara in a sparring match with the assistance of Kryptonite emitters in the room, in an attempt to prepare Kara for anything she might face. She later came to Kara's apartment and questioned her sister as to whether telling [[James Olsen|James]] and [[Winn Schott|Winn]] her secret identity was a good idea, soon after apologizing to Kara, regretting how she handled things earlier however, Alex was soon called by the D.E.O. who needed her back at the base, telling Kara that she'd call her.[[File:Alex and Hank following behind the vehicle with the DDT.png|250px|thumb|left|Alex and Hank following behind the vehicle with the DDT.]] At the D.E.O., Alex along with "Henshaw" and Agent [[Hartmann]] came to the conclusion that the [[Hellgrammite]] was eating the DDT he had been stealing, as the government had been destroying remaining stockpiles, and his food source was shrinking. Later, the D.E.O. set a trap for the Hellgrammite with a truck carrying tanks of DDT, while Alex and Henshaw along with several other D.E.O. agents followed it in another vehicle. The Hellgrammite abducted Alex and takes her to General [[Astra]], who revealed her true identity after she mistaking her for Alura. Alex was later found by Kara who had tracked her down with her super hearing. A fight between Kara and Astra ensued, and Hellgrammite attacked Alex, who tried for radio contact D.E.O., who was able to overcome him by forcing the stinger he protruded from his hand into his heart. Later at the D.E.O. base, Alex was asked by Kara to train her, with Alex promising to make Kara better than herself. Alex then showed Kara a room that had been setup containing an Artificial Intelligence program of Alura that had been sent with her pod. Leaving Kara to talk to it, she thanked "Henshaw" for helping her set up the room.<ref name="StrongerTogether" />

After a Kryptonians attack to [[Lord Technologies]] Alex, who over previous investigations has become close with the ambiguous millionaire [[Maxwell Lord]], accepted his invitation to a dinner to interrogate him. After she learned that the appetizer they're eating is actually snail eggs (which cost $ 100 a spoon) she spits them out in a napkin then starts to question him about what were the aliens looking for in his laboratory. Max recalls that Supergirl is also an alien, Alex replied that Supergirl saves lives. Max tells her that she too, saves lives, and asks her what's her real relation to Supergirl, Alex responds him that she works for her organization and she's a reliable employee. Finally Max tells her that they have conducted an inventory in the laboratory and found that the aliens did not take anything, then he proposes a toast to "Alex Danvers, a real hero".

During the ceremony [[Scorcher]] tried again to assassinate the President; they tried to stop her, but she ran away kidnapping Maggie an bringing her to a factory stock.

"It is our job to take risks. We run into the line of fire. We face enemies that no one on this planet has the courage to."
—Alex Danvers to J'onn J'onzz[src]

Dr. Alexandra "Alex" Danvers (born 1989[1][2]) is a bio-engineer and former director of the D.E.O. She is the daughter of Jeremiah Danvers and Eliza Danvers, the adoptive sister of Kara Danvers, the ex-fiancée of Maggie Sawyer, and the girlfriend of Kelly Olsen.

BiographyEdit

Original multiverseEdit

Early lifeEdit

Alex was born in 1989 in Midvale to her parents; scientists Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers.[3] When she was six years old, Alex and her parents visited Nagano, Japan for the summer. Alex grew homesick so one night, a local village girl helped her sneak down to one of the temples. There, Alex wrote down a wish and placed the paper in a crack in the wall in the hopes that it would come true. The girl then taught Alex a rhyme, "yubikiri genman, uso tsuitara," which means "pinky swear."[4] When she was eight years old, Alex met and became best friends with Josie.[5]

Young Alex and Kara

The Danvers sisters in Jr. High school.

Since early childhood, Alex displayed a gifted intellect and brilliant attitude towards science. As a teenager, she enrolled in Midvale Junior High, obtaining remarkable results.[6] The star of her family, when Kara arrived in 2003, Alex was jealous of her newly-adoptive sister due to her abilities and dismayed at the fact that Kara easily excelled at math and science.[5] Thus, she was secretly happy when Kara decided not to use her powers.[3]

At first resentful of that "strange girl" who came into her life for constantly following her around at school and embarrassing her in front of her friends,[7] Alex soon began to warm up to Kara and acted as her big sister, often comforting her when she was afraid or sad.[3]

One night, Kara took Alex flying, in spite of the latter's initial protests. During the adventure, Alex told Kara the story about her summer trip to Nagano and taught her sister the rhyme which the girl from the village taught her.[4] Unfortunately, due to that night, the D.E.O. subsequently found out about Kara. They forced Alex's father to work for them in exchange for not taking Kara away. One year later, Jeremiah "died" protecting a martian from the D.E.O.'s ruthless director Hank Henshaw,[6][8] but Eliza told Alex and Kara that he was killed in a plane crash.[1]

Troubled teenEdit

Alex attended Midvale High School, during which her relationship with Kara became frosty as she blamed the latter for her father's death and resented having to be Kara's "earthly ambassador". Alex completely put her focus into her studies and social life, becoming a popular girl alongside Josie. In high school, she met and befriended Vicki Donahue, who also became a member of her clique.

In 2007 during her junior year, Alex began failing calculus, but was too embarrassed to tell her family or friends. Alex's classmate, Kenny Li, then offered to tutor her in secret, which she accepted. Alex and Kenny would study in the nearby woods and overtime, became close friends. However, Alex never acknowledged Kenny outside of their tutoring sessions, always dismissing him as "Kara's friend", which she would grow to regret.

When Kenny was murdered, Alex and Kara worked together to investigate his death, in which they discovered that Kenny learned of Josie's secret affair with their history teacher, Mr. Bernard. Despite Josie's protests, Alex reported this to the authorities. While she and Kara were walking home that night, they were almost killed by a speeding car, whom they believed to be Mr. Bernard. Shortly after though, Alex found out that Josie was with Mr. Bernard at the time of the attack, meaning he wasn't the culprit. She rushed to school and spoke to Sheriff Ronald Collins, who turned out to be the real killer and he held her at gunpoint. When Kara tried to contact her, Alex managed to reveal she was at Midvale High before Collins took her phone. Collins took Alex to the boiler room, where he planned to kill her as well, but Alex showed no fear, knowing that Kara was coming for her. At that moment, Kara arrived and knocked out Collins, saving Alex's life and making the pair's relationship whole. Later following Collins' arrest, Alex's friendship with Josie fell apart and she was cast out of the popular clique, but ultimately didn't mind much. That afternoon as they ate lunch together for the first time, Kara revealed to Alex that Kenny had a picture of her flying, but kept it a secret.[5]

Despite Alex's fallout with Josie and the popular clique, her friendship with Vicki persisted for some time. Alex loved sleeping over at Vicki's house, in which they would share a bed. However, Alex soon started to develop feelings for Vicki, much to her confusion and alarm. As a result, she began subconsciously pushing Vicki away by starting fights with her over almost everything, even if it was stupid or insignificant, until the pair drifted apart. This memory hurt Alex so much that she repressed it for years, consequently not coming out as a lesbian until much later in life.[9]

Over the years, the bond between Alex and Kara became so strong that neither of them can imagine their lives without the other.[7]

After graduation, Alex pursued an MD/PhD at National City University.[6] In medical school, she had a boyfriend, Capraro, who would write poems about him and Alex fighting and they allegedly broke up because of it.[10] Alex also conducted research in genetic engineering at Stanford.[1]

Alex meets &quot;Hank Henshaw&quot;

Alex first meets "Hank" after she is arrested.

Despite her intelligence and academic results, Alex grew up a troubled young adult who used hard-partying and heavy drinking to cope with her insecurities and troubles, including her latent homosexuality and the loss of her father. This escalated to the point where Alex began falling behind in school and was placed on academic probation. In 2012, after a night of drinking and clubbing led to a DUI and her arrest, Alex was visited by "Hank Henshaw" in jail. He offered her a position at the D.E.O., assuring Alex that she is special just like Kara and pointing out that she owed it to her father to be the person "Hank" knew she could be.[6]

Working for the D.E.O.Edit

Alex had to go through a full year of training before being allowed to work in the field.[11] Despite her close connection to Kara being one of the main reasons the D.E.O. hired her, Alex soon proved herself as one of the best agents, quickly becoming "Hank"'s second-in-command.[3]

Alex frequently struggled with dating and romance, unconsciously suppressing any feelings she developed towards other women. As a result, Alex soon began to devote nearly all of her time towards her work.[9]

In 2015, Alex had to attend a conference in Geneva but Flight 237, on which she was traveling, was sabotaged by Vartox in an attempt to kill her and other D.E.O. agents on board. Though the plane was saved by Kara from crashing, Alex later berated her sister for doing so, angry that she had revealed herself to the world, and now there is no turning back. Kara was later captured by the D.E.O. and taken back to their base, where Alex revealed her identity as a D.E.O. agent. After Kara was defeated and almost killed by Vartox, Alex rescued her. revealing that the only way that the Fort Rozz escapees could get back at Kara's mother was through her now. She later went to Kara's apartment, apologetically explaining herself, and encouraging Kara to be a hero. The two then went to the D.E.O. base, where they convinced Director "Hank Henshaw" to let Kara defeat Vartox.[3]

A week later, Alex along with the rest of the D.E.O., tested the limits of Kara's abilities, firing missiles into the sky at her. Afterward, Alex debated with Kara over the necessity of the tests before Kara had to leave to stop a fire raging at National City Port. Days later, the D.E.O. investigated the theft and murder of a security guard on Plastino Chemicals factory, with Alex calling Supergirl to assist in the investigation. Later at the D.E.O. base in the training room, Alex defeated Kara in a sparring match with the assistance of Kryptonite emitters in the room, in an attempt to prepare Kara for anything she might face. She later came to Kara's apartment and questioned her sister as to whether telling James and Winn her secret identity was a good idea, soon after apologizing to Kara, regretting how she handled things earlier however, Alex was soon called by the D.E.O. who needed her back at the base, telling Kara that she'd call her.

Alex and Hank following behind the vehicle with the DDT.

At the D.E.O., Alex along with "Henshaw" and Agent Hartmann came to the conclusion that the Hellgrammite was eating the DDT he had been stealing, as the government had been destroying remaining stockpiles, and his food source was shrinking. Later, the D.E.O. set a trap for the Hellgrammite with a truck carrying tanks of DDT, while Alex and Henshaw along with several other D.E.O. agents followed it in another vehicle. The Hellgrammite abducted Alex and takes her to General Astra, who revealed her true identity after she mistaking her for Alura. Alex was later found by Kara who had tracked her down with her super hearing. A fight between Kara and Astra ensued, and Hellgrammite attacked Alex, who tried for radio contact D.E.O., who was able to overcome him by forcing the stinger he protruded from his hand into his heart. Later at the D.E.O. base, Alex was asked by Kara to train her, with Alex promising to make Kara better than herself. Alex then showed Kara a room that had been setup containing an Artificial Intelligence program of Alura that had been sent with her pod. Leaving Kara to talk to it, she thanked "Henshaw" for helping her set up the room.[11]

When Reactron comes to National City with the intention to kill Supergirl as he wanted Superman to suffer and lose everything, Alex decide to help her sister to fight him despite he is not an alien and so none of D.E.O. business. Her stubbornness and determination makes that even "Hank Henshaw" decides to help them.[12]

Eliza and Alex

Mother-daughter speech.

On Thanksgiving, Kara and Alex are visited by their mother Eliza, with whom Alex had a strained relationship because. since Kara arrived, Eliza expected Alex to protect her, often leading to a fight when she didn't. Alex admitted to her mother that she works at the D.E.O. leading Eliza to told she and Kara how Jeremiah was forced to work for the D.E.O. by Hank Henshaw to protect Kara but was killed in action; never knowing how or why he died.[1] Alex had trouble working with "Hank" after this and enlists the help of Winn to hack into the D.E.O. mainframe to find out what really happened to her father only to discover that Jeremiah Danvers went missing on a mission with Henshaw in South America.[13] Alex and Kara begins to mistrust the director, until an earthquake traps him and Alex at the D.E.O. headquarters with a powerful alien escapee and, while fighting side by side, she found out he is not Hank Henshaw, but a martian named J'onn J'onzz and that her father died protecting him from the real Hank.[8] She and J'onn later disclosed this secret even to Kara.[14]

Dinner with MaxEdit

Alex and Max have dinner.

After a Kryptonians attack to Lord Technologies Alex, who over previous investigations has become close with the ambiguous millionaire Maxwell Lord, accepted his invitation to a dinner to interrogate him. After she learned that the appetizer they're eating is actually snail eggs (which cost $100 a spoon) she spits them out in a napkin then starts to question him about what were the aliens looking for in his laboratory. Max recalls that Supergirl is also an alien, Alex replied that Supergirl saves lives. Max tells her that she too, saves lives, and asks her what's her real relation to Supergirl, Alex responds him that she works for her organization and she's a reliable employee. Finally Max tells her that they have conducted an inventory in the laboratory and found that the aliens did not take anything, then he proposes a toast to "Alex Danvers, a real hero". Unbeknownst to her, Maxwell planted a recording device in Alex's purse and, later that night, when she goes to Kara's apartment, he overhears their conversation, confirming his suspicions that they're sisters.[15]

Alex arrests Max

After the appearance of Bizarro, Alex goes to Max, saying she knew that he's responsible. Max indirectly confesses his experiments, but threatens Alex to not reveal his operations, insinuating that he knows her family; however Alex orders D.E.O. agents to arrest him and, when he threatened to reveal Supergirl's secret identity, she slams him on a desk and stated no one would hear him, then she brought him to the D.E.O.; J'onn berates Alex for bringing him in, as Max is not an alien, but Alex counters he of all people should understand her desire to protect her family.[16]

Saving KaraEdit

When Kara is attacked by the Black Mercy, and plunged into "the perfect dream", in which she appeared on Krypton, Astra came to Alex and told her how to help Kara. Alex with the help of Max Lord, who invented a special helmet, was plunged into Kara's mind to force her to give up illusions.

Alex goes through the corridors and find the room where the House of El sits with Kara, who could not remember Alex. She tries to explain to her what is really going on, but she does not believe her and let her being captured and sentenced to the to capital punishment - exile in the Phantom Zone. Alex tells Kara that if she doesn't wake up, they both remain in her mind, until Black Marcy kill them both, while Zor-El tells Kara that once Alex will go, they will be happy again. Alex, weeping, says Kara that she understands how much she has lost and how much she knows Kara wanted to go home, but this is only an illusion. An earthquake begins, Kara realizes the truth, says goodbye to her parents and reach for Alex's hand just in time to avoid being swallowed by a sinkhole. As she wakes up with an expressionless look, Kara demands to know who did this to her, and Alex responds that it was Non.[7]

Killing Astra and recognition of KaraEdit

Alex kills Astra

Alex kills Astra.

When Kryptonians gathered to start the next stage of their plan to conquer the Earth, they decided to use the Lord Technologies satellites and connect them to their device. Alex shots Astra from an helicopter and distracts her from the activation of the device. A fight between them ensued despite Alex claiming she did not want to fight Astra, that she know she loves Kara and that she had plenty of opportunities to kill her and Kara, but she didn't, so she offers Astra to surrender. They were interrupted by J'onn who threw Astra away from Alex, and then started a fight with her. As Astra overcome the martian claiming she's going to give him an "honorable death", Alex stabs her in the back with a Kryptonite blade, killing her. After that, J'onn covers Alex to Kara, saying that he killed Astra, because have not seen any other way. Later, Alex asked J'onn why he lied about it and he said it's because she's Kara's hero and he didn't want that to change.[7]

After that, Kara quit working with the D.E.O. because she didn't know how to work with J'onn after what he had done to Astra[17] but, a few days later, she comes back and he tells J'onn and Alex, she's ready to work with them again because it's better for the world. However Alex could not stand it anymore and begins to tell Kara the truth about the murder of Astra, J'onn tries to stop her, but she continued, saying that she saw Astra on him and that he was defenseless, so she had to kill her to save J'onn, who took the blame because he wouldn't Kara to be angry at her. Crying, Alex says that J'onn allowed to do so because they do not want to lose her. Kara hugs Alex. Hank wants to leave, but Kara stops him and takes his hand.[18]

ArrestEdit

After J'onn is forced to reveal his martian identity to save Alex from Kara (who was under the influence of Red Kryptonite) he was arrested and questioned by Colonel Harper, along with Major Lucy Lane, to find out how he got into D.E.O. and what happened to the real Hank Henshaw. He explained to them that he did not kill Jeremiah Danvers, but they were skeptical about it. J'onn told them about what happened 10 years ago in Peru, about how he met Jeremiah Danvers and how Hank Henshaw tried to kill him. But Harper does not believe him and sends in Project Cadmus both J'onn and Alex, which is accused of complicity and treason as Lucy realized that she knew about J'onn. To save them, Kara is forced to reveal her secret to Lucy, and then asks her to help rescue them. After intercepting the truck in which they are taken to Cadmus, they attack it on board of a pair of motorcycles and set J'onn and Alex free. The martian also sees in Harper's consciousness that Alex's father is still alive and in Cadmus. Alex and J'onn are nevertheless forced to leave National City as fugitives.[6]

MyriadEdit

Myriad Alex vs Kara

Alex fights Kara under Myriad's control.

After they learn about what is happening in National City, Alex and J'onn went back there to help Kara. However, they are attacked by Indigo, who kidnapped Alex so that Non can later put her under the control of Myriad, forcing her to fight Kara with the intention to kill her.[19] She almost did it, but was stopped by her mother, who told her that she believed in her, snapping her out of the mind control.

Later, Alex told her mother that her father is alive in a secret laboratory, where they will go to save him, after sorted out with Non who, meanwhile, strengthened Myriad's power to kill all the people on Earth. To stop him, Kara decided to carry Fort Rozz, the source of Myriad, into space, however, there she loses consciousness and is rescued by Alex, who drives her back to Earth thanks to the pod on which she arrived twelve years prior. She was later present at Kara's apartment during the celebratory dinner they were having. Thought it was interrupted by a pod flying in the sky catching their attention, causing Kara and J'onn to leave to check it out.[20]

Superman's arrivalEdit

When Superman flew to National City, Alex immediately noticed that there's some tension between him and J'onn, so she tried to find out what happened and discovered that Superman has once helped the D.E.O. uncover an alien asteroid, composed of an emerald-green Kryptonian xenomineral whose radiations weakened Kryptonian's physiology and, despite he asked J'onn to destroy it, the martian refused, deciding to keep the meteorite as a means of protection against other Kryptonians, enraging Superman and leading to the pair falling out. The next day, despite having survived two previous attempts to her life, Lena Luthor, attends to the ceremony to renaming the Luthor Corp into "L-Corp", however, at that moment she began to make her speech, several explosions take place on the site forcing her to flee to a safe place, but John Corben dressed as a policeman, stops her and tries to kill her at the behest of Lex Luthor. Alex intervened and fights him but was ultimately held at gunpoint and taken as a hostage by the hitman; however before he could leave, Lena shot him in the back freeing her.[21]

Supergirl and Alex vs Metallo

Supergirl and Alex fight Metallo together.

After Corben resurfaced as the Kryptonite-powered cyborg Metallo, Alex and Winn realized that behind the sample of D.E.O.'s stock of Kryptonite stolen four months ago there is a traitor: J. McGill, who Alex instructed to prepare trucks for transportation of Kryptonite, to caught him red-handed at the time of the abduction. However, before she can arrest him, the agents of Cadmus shot him and knocked down Alex. When she awakes, Alex is approached by the mysterious "Doctor" of Cadmus, who said that if she does not want to join them, she will be killed, however Alex was able to fend off the agents and, after a fight broke out between them, she is saved by Kara. Later, Supergirl and Alex (one in an anti-Kryptonite device and the other in her special exosuit) fought Metallo and together were able to overcome the cyborg, who is ultimately stabbed him in the chest with a piece of pipe by Alex, while Kara held him.[22]

Meeting with Maggie SawyerEdit

Alex meets Maggie

Alex meets Maggie.

After the assassination attempt on the President, Alex found Detective Sawyer collecting evidence at the airport and asks her what she was doing in her crime scene, Maggie pointed out that she was from NCPD's Science Police and her work is to investigate everything regarding aliens. Alex tried to throw her off the investigation, but Maggie proved herself as the other woman's intellectual match, culminating in an exchange of banter between the two of them that finally ended with Alex sternly asserting herself. The two would later meet again when Alex led her team into a warehouse raid in search of a supposed rogue Kryptonian, in where Maggie was already there, thanks to her street contacts, and casing the edifice from within; Alex's armed gear and team allowed Maggie to discern that the former was in fact D.E.O., much to the agent's chagrin. Later, after being accosted by Kara for going after the kryptonian without her as backup, Alex is invited by Maggie to Al's Dive Bar and they tried to figure out where is Mon-El, since they assumed that he is the one who attacked the president. Upon arriving at the bar, the waitress, Darla, handed out two drinks for the pair of women (ordered by Maggie) before commenting the cop "moving on"; confused, Alex inquires Sawyer if the waitress was a Roltikkon, to which Maggie confirms, along with the fact that she and Darla were formerly a couple, making Alex realize that she was just mistaken by the alien as Maggie's new flame. The next day, Alex, along with Maggie, attended President's Marsdin signing decree on the alien embassy act. During the ceremony Scorcher tried again to assassinate the President; they tried to stop her, but she ran away kidnapping Maggie an bringing her to a factory stock. Later Supergirl and Alex rescued the detective, who helped them fighting the alien terrorist. After a brief medical check-up at the D.E.O. Maggie thanked Alex for having saved her and then left, saying she had a date with a girl.[23]

Alex and Maggie at the fight club

The next day, the pair made up, and returned to National City, in which they found a ship which contained Mon-El.

Crisis on Earth-XEdit

After having dealt with a Dominator, Alex and Kara talked about Mon-El in which Alex discovered a wedding invitation to Barry Allen and Iris West's wedding, though hesitant at first, Kara decided to go with Alex. Alex went to the rehearsal dinner, in which she started drinking and was soon joined by Sara Lance. Alex mentioned to Sara her sexuality and how she had to cancel her wedding, and the two continued to drink before making out outside Jitters. The two ended up at a hotel room in which the pair had sex, three times. Alex wakes up to discover Sara next to her and sneaks out. Alex arrived to the wedding where she and Kara talked until Sara arrived who asked if Alex was okay after falling out of bed, thus revealing their interaction to Kara. Kara told Alex that it was okay and mentioned how Sara was an assassin, Alex calls her a "sassy assassin". Alex and Kara entered the church and watched the wedding, but before the ceremony could continue, the priest was killed by Overgirl and the invading Nazi forces of Earth-X. Alex and Sara teamed up and took down many Nazis as well as knocking out Prometheus.

After imprisoning Prometheus in S.T.A.R. Labs, they learn that he's Tommy Merlyn. While Oliver conversed with him, Alex joined the other heroes in the Cortex to discuss recent events. The Legends suggest that Tommy was an anachronism, yet Alex agreed with Iris' argument over why Nazis would target her wedding, stating that time-displaced Nazis would target military or law enforcement. Ultimately, Team Flash discerned their attackers were from another Earth and Harry Wells revealed the existence of a fifty-third Earth, Earth-X.

Later, Alex runs into Sara and was nervous, though Sara didn't think too much of it. Alex then speaks with Kara and admitted that she doesn't know what to feel due to her sleeping with Sara and wondered if she made the right choice when it came to Maggie. Kara tries to console her but Alex believed that she made a mistake when it came to sleeping with Sara and breaking up with Maggie.

When Kara, Oliver and Barry return from a confrontation with the Nazis at a science lab, they also produced a kryptonite arrow with blood on it, explaining that the Nazis leaders were doppelgangers of Kara and Oliver. A confused Alex inquired how Kara could have a doppelganger. Harry pointed that if there were 53 Earths, there could also be 53 Kryptons. Alex quickly analyzed the blood and determined that it contained high amounts of solar radiation, giving them the means to track Overgirl.

When the team had discovered Overgirl's location, Alex and Sara teamed up again in which Sara asked if that was okay, Alex agreed. Alex battled along with the others and seemed to be winning until the arrival of Metallo who quickly took down Supergirl and Firestorm with ease, and Alex and the others were knocked out. Once they awoke, they were imprisoned and discovered that Overgirl was dying from excess solar radiation and that they planned to cut out Kara's heart and put it into Overgirl's. Alex warned against harming her sister, to which Overgirl reacted with amusement, stating that her own sister tried to kill her. Metallo then knocked them all out again in which they were all taken to Earth-X except Kara.

After awaking on Earth-X, Alex and the group met Ray Terrill who revealed he was in prison because he loved the wrong person, this worried both Alex and Sara due to their sexuality. Suddenly they met the Earth-X version of Sara's father, Quentin Lance who planned to have them executed along with Ray. When they tried to escape they were shocked by the collars they were wearing and were almost executed until the arrival of Leo Snart. Leo freed them and helped them escape when he freed Ray which allowed him to use his powers. They escaped to the Freedom Fighters, who were led by the Earth-X version of Winn Schott, and he refused to allow them to go to the breach as he planned to have it destroyed. Alex tried to convince him due to knowing his Earth-38 counterpart, but he still refused. Alex attempted to find a gun so that she could try to rescue Kara, but Sara stopped her by mentioning that she is part of her team now. Sara learned about Maggie and talked to Alex about her own Maggie, Nyssa. Sara then told Alex that she should follow her instincts and that her reasons behind the break-up were valid. Eventually Winn was convinced by Ray and Leo to attempt to get to the portal, in which Alex and Sara teamed up against the Nazi's. They succeed in taking the site, but during the conflict Martin Stein got injured.

In the final battle with the Nazi's, Alex and Sara teamed up against the Nazi's and won after the deaths of Dark Arrow and Overgirl. Alex attended the funeral of Martin Stein along with everyone else. Alex and Sara had one last conversation in which Alex agreed with Sara that she should follow her instincts, they hugged before parting ways. Alex and Kara said goodbye to Barry, Iris, Oliver and Felicity and returned to Earth-38.

The rise of ReignEdit

After returning home, Alex along with Kara, Winn and J'onn listened to Mon-El and Imra's interpretation of their future, Imra revealed to them that they are part of a group called The Legion and that Mon-El helped create them through what he learned from Supergirl. Alex went to Kara's Christmas party, where she bonded with Ruby Arias through tales of her adventures with Supergirl, who Ruby idolizes. Later when an unknown Kryptonian arrives in National City leaving marks all over the city, Alex finds out along with everyone else that the Kryptonian is said to be the Krypton equivalent of the devil, Reign. When Reign finally makes her presence known and is called out by Kara, Alex tells Kara that she needs to embrace her Kryptonian side. Kara did, but was brutally beaten to unconsciousness. Alex arrived at the scene and took Kara back to the D.E.O. where she attempted to keep Kara alive after her brutal fight with Reign.

Mon-El awakened Querl Dox from his hibernation in order to help Kara and Alex watched with the others. Mo-El and Imra told Alex and the others about their mission and that they know Reign eventually left but with Supergirl out of commission, Reign is creating terror. In order to capture her, Alex, J'onn and the DEO staged a robbery in which Reign arrived to kill them, but when they revealed themselves she hesitated, this allowed the DEO to use their advanced weapons to capture Reign, in which Alex placed a chain with kryptonite on hjer, but she resisted it and broke out and used a whip that was used on her to snap Alex's leg. Alex was taken care of by Querl, in which Alex decided to watch over Kara, she would use words of encouragement that Querl would use to help Kara awaken. Alex witnessed Kara awaken and told her of the plan that the Legion were doing, in order to subdue Reign. Kara left and was successful in subduing Reign, though she escaped.

Bonding with RubyEdit

With her leg broken, Alex was side-lined from active duty, when Sam couldn't get her usual sitter for Ruby, Alex offered to look after Ruby. Alex and Ruby bonded throughout the day, in which Alex got a text from Maggie, asking about her passport that she left at her place, Alex pointed out to Ruby where she believed it to be and she was right. Ruby then admits to Alex that she is being cyber-bullied, refusing to allow this, Alex had Ruby take her to the girl and pretended to be an FBI agent, and scolded the girl for cyber bulling. Alex and Ruby spent the rest of the day bonding, when Sam arrived to pick her up. Alex pretended that Ruby was a nightmare that Sam laughed about. When Alex asked about Sam's business trip, Sam had no knowledge of it, Sam then asked for Alex's help.

Fully healed from her leg injury, Alex ran some tests on Sam to find out what was wrong but had no luck in finding out. While at the DEO, Kara arrived with a dying Lena, who had ingested some poison, after asking Kara several questions, Alex deduced the poison and had Kara use her freeze breath to counteract the poison. Alex and Sam then went to Kara and Lena in which Sam revealed to them about her blackouts, after hearing from a friend, Alex informed Sam, Lena and Kara that there was nothing wrong with her blood.

PersonalityEdit


This section is a stub. You can help expand this section by adding some information.

Alex is a courageous and independent person, who faces danger head on. She is caring, confident, and headstrong, with the same passion for bio-engineering like her parents. Alex had dedicated her life to protecting her sister, Kara, and rarely found time for herself since teenhood.

Despite her good traits, sometimes Alex can be impulsive and prone to make difficult decisions crossing the line between right and wrong (some might even classify her as morally grey); such as when she stabbed Astra in the back, or when she assaulted a Cadmus facility on her own by placing mines in the structure to blackmail Lillian Luthor, even if on those occasions it was to save first J'onn J'onzz's and then her father's life.

However, she has a great sense of justice, since when J'onn took the blame for Astra's death, as he did want not Alex to lose her relationship with her adopted sister, knowing it was wrong, she eventually confessed to Kara her role in Astra's death despite her fear to lose her.

After much soul searching and exploration, Alex finds the courage to come out as a lesbian to herself, then to her ex-girlfriend Maggie Sawyer, then Kara, her mother Eliza, her friends and her father Jeremiah. Alex's interactions with Maggie show a more flustered, awkward and almost goofy side of her personality, similar to that of Kara.

Above all, Alex is a strong woman, she fights for what she believes in and has a difficult time giving up. When she was kidnapped by her childhood friend, Rick Malverne, she never stopped trying to escape and was able to use her D.E.O. training to help her survive. She has been referenced as being a "bad-ass" by many people.

After losing Maggie, Alex became devastated unable to cope with it and started drinking heavily. She is also fond of leather jackets.

Alex loves her sister and asks J'onn to erase her memories of Kara's identity as Supergirl.

Alex later retrieves her memories when Supergirl saves her and fights Red Daughter.

After known memories of Kara's identity as Supergirl was erased by J'onn J'onzz, her views on alien completely changed; for example, she was about to kill an innocent alien who was attacking Bobbi Miller (as he believed her to be a member of the Children of Liberty) as he was only defending his home, which forces Kara to use her heat vision to disarm Alex of her weapon. Later, even without her memories, Alex teams up with Supergirl; when a false Supergirl attacks the White House.

    • Medical knowledge: Alex has performed medical procedures on both humans and aliens; she patched James Olsen up after he was knocked out by a super soldier with Livewire's abilities[29] and examined a comatose M'gann M'orzz, who suffered a psychic attack, figuring out that a Martian mind meld with J'onn would be the only way to save her.[29] Alex also performed an MRI on Samantha Arias when studying her blackouts and helped save Lena Luthor when the latter was poisoned.[47] She and Lena later worked to treat Sam's failing health following her separation from Reign.[48]
    • Expert interrogator/Torturer: Due to her time with the D.E.O., Alex is an effective interrogator and torturer. She once claimed to know six ways to torture someone with just an index finger.[26] Her knowledge of interrogation techniques is so advanced that when she was interrogated with a polygraph, Alex managed to fake the results.[6]
    • Explosives expert: Alex demonstrated expertise with bombs, as seen when she rigged an entire Cadmus facility with Haldorr particle mines, linking some of them to a dead man's switch.[42]
    • Expert driver/Pilot: Alex is a very capable pilot, being able to drive both common vehicles and spaceships.[20]
  • Indomitable will/High tolerance for pain: Alex has shown she is capable of tolerating a high amount of pain; while captured by Malverne, she snapped her credit card in half and used its broken edge to cut deeply into her skin on her shoulder to remove her subdermal tracking chip with barely any reaction.[40] With help from her mother, Eliza Danvers, Alex was able to overcome Indigo's brainwashing.[20] She even battled an army of Earth-X Nazis in spite of being slightly hungover.[49]
  • Intimidation: Alex was able to intimidate Winn Schott to the point that he revealed that James Olsen is Guardian. However, when she attempted to intimidate Julia Freeman (who's alter-ego, Purity was in control at the time) by threatening her with months of incarceration, in order to get her to reveal who the other world-killers are; unfortunately, this completely backfired, as Julia was completely unfazed by these threats of hers. However, after Alex's memories of Kara's identity as Supergirl was erased by J'onn J'onzz, she no longer has the ability to intimidate any individual; even someone like Spencer, who has no form of training to resist interrogation. It is likely that she regained this ability after getting her memories back.

EquipmentEdit

Original multiverseEdit

  • Protective suit: Winn made Alex a protective suit for the battle against the Worldkillers. The suit is fitted with magnets so that Alex is able to force her gun back to her. Since leaving the D.E.O. Alex has lost the use of this equipment being D.E.O. property.

Former equipmentEdit

  • Kryptonite-powered exosuit: Alex used a special cybernetic exosuit powered via Kryptonite, which she got from Non while under Myriad's mind control, to allow her to fight superhumanly stronger opponents such as Kara Danvers or Metallo by physically enhancing her. Also, the suit's forearm was fitted with a Kryptonite-powered energy gun and it could generate green, concussive shockwaves to physically repel and incapacitate opponents, especially Kryptonians.[19][22] Since leaving the D.E.O. Alex has lost the use of this equipment being D.E.O. property.
  • Taser batons: Alex uses a pair of batons with an electric charge powerful enough to incapacitate super-powered humans. Since leaving the D.E.O. Alex has lost the use of this equipment being D.E.O. property.
    • Kryptonite electric field: With her new suit that Winn made her has included some new features such as a kryptonite blaster on her glove of her suit that generates a Kryptonite energy field.
    • Magnets: Also built into the suit are magnetics which can be used for offensive and defensive ta such as pulling her gun towards her if disarmed. She has also used the magnets in the suit to make a magnetic shield to defend herself or to contain explosives.
    • Maaldorian laser pistol: During a rescue mission on Maaldoria, Alex acquired an alien pistol from a fallen alien. The pistol itself is shown to be very powerful as it sends any target it hits over a distance and it has even proven strong enough to take down a White Martian, albeit weakened from J'onn and M'gann. Following the constant attacks by the Worldkillers, Winn has upgraded the gun to use not only laser bullets, but also Kryptonite bullets when fighting the Kryptonian witches.
      • Kryptonite bullets: While fighting the Worldkillers, Alex alien pistol was modified to shoot Kryptonite bullets when loaded.[48]
      • Electric bullets: While fighting against some mind-controlled aliens, Alex used electric bullets to restart Supergirl's protective suit.[50]
      • Electric net ammunition: Generates an electrical net capable of briefly restraining three Kryptonians, It works until the net is blasted by heat vision.

    • Alex's suit: After leaving the D.E.O., Alex had to leave her old suit behind and has started wearing a black and blue suit that was manifested by the Hand of the soldier for her time as a vigilante.[51]

Former equipmentEdit

  • Protective suit: Winn made Alex a protective suit for the battle against the Worldkillers. The suit is fitted with magnets so that Alex is able to force her gun back to her. Since leaving the D.E.O. Alex has lost the use of this equipment being D.E.O. property.
