History

Previous missions

The Superfriends were dealing with Reign and her Worldkillers. The fight started when Samantha Arias Kryptonian side started to manifest and Reign started taking over with help from the Children of Juru.[1]

The Superfriends were dealing with Ben Lockwood, the Children of Liberty, Mercy Graves and Otis Graves.[1] Kara's friends along with Lex and Lena also defended her when the President had gone against her views.[2]

War against Leviathan

The Superfriends are dealing with three pre-crisis and post-crisis threats; Leviathan and Lex Luthor as well as for the soul of Lena Luthor.[3]

Before Lena killed Lex, he revealed to her that Kara Danvers was Supergirl and that her close friends were the Superfriends, hurting Lena that they all had Secret identities, but she was not viewed as enough of a confidante to be told.[4] Lena decided that the world did not need Supergirl so she sought to change Humans with Project Non Nocere, even stealing Myriad to help in the process.

Meanwhile, J'onn J'onzz was being tested by a being called the Monitor as to how far his compassion went by releasing Malefic J'onzz, his brother, from the Phantom Zone.

J'onn passed his test just as the Anti-Monitor Crisis began.[5] Though Lena, for her theft, was not viewed in a positive light, she still helped in the Evacuation of Earth-38 before the world was destroyed.[6] Later, J'onn and Kara learned that they were special throughout the Multiverse as two among Paragons.[7] Lex was resurrected by the Monitor [4] and took a spot among the Paragons.[7] Ultimately, Earth-Prime was created with the Paragons and their allies keeping their original memories despite the changes in the new universe.[8]

Due to Lex, Lena retained her memories, but also her anger for the secrets. Lex sought to rule the new world but he learned of a new threat called Leviathan and decided to destroy it from within, though his hatred for Kryptonians stayed paramount. Lex even had Jeremiah Danvers killed to keep Supergirl off-balance.[9] Though he knew it was a failure, Lex worked with Lena on her project until she realized it as well[10] and humbly returned and apologized to Supergirl, who revealed that she hid her identity because their friendship was so valuable to her and to keep Lena from harm. Ultimately, Kara and Lena decided that Lex needed to be defeated.

Leviathan, who sought to kill 1/4 of the world through a program called Obsidian Platinum, was thwarted in VR by Supergirl and in reality by Querl Dox,[11] who for the safety of his friends kept his own secrets,[10] but the process left him slowly dying of radiation poisoning and Nia Nal not understanding the one she loved.[11] Nia later appears on the Leviathan ship and saves Brainy. Gamemnae then appeared and attacked the Superfriends. She entered the ship's computer system and assumed her true form, but she was killed by Supergirl using the Anti-life equation. After Leviathan and the Luthors were defeated, Lex hit Supergirl with a projector from the Fortress and sent her to the Phantom Zone.[12] The team had to work to find a way to locate her.[13]

Kara in the Phantom Zone

The Superfriends fight Prime Phantom, a phantom that escaped the Phantom Zone,[13] who started transforming the citizens of National City into its progeny, even infecting Miss Martian,[14] until finally defeated.[15]

The Superfriends because of the dreams of Nia Nal Time travel to get a means to locate Kara in the splintered alternate dimension.[16][17]

Meanwhile, Kara is reunited with Zor-El, her father,[13] and meets Nyxlygsptlnz, from the Fifth Dimension,[14] and they try to leave on their own, but their attempts fail.

Lena Luthor[15] and Kelly Olsen officially join the team and, with their unique skills, help the Superfriends in retrieving Kara and Zor-El, with Nxyly hitchhiking a ride.[18]
