The Superfriends, coined by Winn Schott, is a vigilante team led by Kara Danvers that operates in National City of Earth-38. The team protects the city from anyone who means to cause it harm, especially alien hostiles. The team is currently inactive, as Supergirl and J’onn J’onzz were the only members to survive the destruction of the multiverse. The Superfriends also work closely with the D.E.O., which is their biggest ally.

Year One: Myriad
After Kara saved Flight 237 and revealed herself to the world, she wanted to use her powers to help people. She then revealed her true identity to her best friend, Winn Schott, who eagerly agreed to help her and keep her secret. He helped make her suit, find her crimes to fight, and even gave her some advice.
The team was expanded when James Olsen told Kara that he knew that she was Supergirl and that her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman wanted him to help her. Her team was then expanded more when she became allies and a member of the D.E.O., earning the help of Hank Henshaw/J'onn J'onzz, Alex Danvers, and numerous other D.E.O. members.
Cat Grant became an ally of Supergirl's team after the latter saved Cat, and the two became close friends.
During Myriad's initiation into National City, Alex was controlled by Non and tried to kill Supergirl, but she managed to get back to normal. Later, J'onn and Kara fought Non and Indigo and managed to defeat them, but the only way to prevent Myriad from killing everyone on Earth was to launch Fort Rozz itself into space. At the risk of her own life Kara lifted Fort Rozz into space and pushed it away from Earth. Kara was saved by J'onn shortly after.
Year Two: Alien Amnesty Act/Daxamite invasion
The Daxamite Mon-El who crash-landed on Earth, became a member of Supergirl's team after he earned both Supergirl and the D.E.O.'s trust. He started training with Supergirl and became an agent of the D.E.O. before he eventually started going on some missions with Supergirl.
When Alex's relationship with detective Maggie Sawyer started getting serious, Maggie revealed that she had figured out that Kara and Supergirl were the same people. She then became a ally of the team.
