Midvale was a small town in the United States of Earth-38.


After Kara Zor-El's pod crash-landed on Earth, she was found by her cousin, Superman, who took her to Midvale to live with Jeremiah, Eliza and Alex Danvers. Kara was adopted by the Danvers and grew up in the their family home.[1]

Kara was enrolled at the local Midvale Junior High School along with Alex, where she was freaked out by her new world and developing powers. Later that day on Swan Beach, Kara saved a mother and her child from a crashed car.[2]

In 2007, the initially estranged Danvers sisters were both enrolled at the Midvale High School. They reluctantly teamed up to investigate the death of their classmate and mutual friend, Kenny Li, and discovered that Kenny was murdered because he witnessed the corrupt local sheriff, Ronald Collins, smuggling drugs.[3] The investigation made Alex also an outcast in school, but established the close relationship between the two girls.

One night, Kara took Alex flying around Midvale and caught the attention of the D.E.O.. The organization's director, Hank Henshaw, arrived in Midvale to confront the Danvers family.[4]

In the summer of 2010, Kara did an internship at the Midvale Newspaper.[5]

In May 2016, while on the run from the government, Alex and J'onn J'onzz visited Eliza in Midvale.[6]

In fall 2017, Kara and Alex stayed in Midvale with Eliza for a few days after Alex broke up with her fiancée, Maggie Sawyer.[3]

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Midvale was destroyed when an antimatter wave wiped out the entire universe.[7]
