Kara Zor-El is an American fictional character appearing in comic books published by DC Comics and related media. The character was created by writer Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino. As Supergirl, Kara Zor-El serves as the biological cousin and female counterpart to DC Comic's iconic superhero Superman, created by writer Jerome Siegel and designed by artist Joseph Shuster. Since her introduction in 1959 Supergirl has become one of the most iconic and recognizable characters in comics.
Lara (née Lara Lor-Van) is a fictional character who appears in Superman comics published by DC Comics. Lara is the biological mother of Superman, and the wife of scientist Jor-El. Lara Lor-Van is Lara's full maiden name, as "Lor-Van" is the name of Lara's father. Most depictions of Kryptonian culture show that females use their father's full name as their last names before marriage, and then are known simply by their first names after marriage.
I mention this to those who have watched "Smallville" that Helen Slater who played in the "Supergirl" film turned out to be Clark's Kryptonian mother "Lara-El" in the show. Laura Vandervoort got to play opposite to her in one of the show's episodes. I have/had a crush on Helen Slater since I had seen her in this film, I was in my teens and she well is and will always be a hot woman from Krypton.-Jeremy [Retro]
While I had a lot of gripes with "Smallville", I did like how they would bring in actor/actresses from old 'superhero stuff' to play certain roles.ReplyDelete
Such as Slater as Lara and Lynda Carter as Chloe's mom, etc.
I always like those little nods to past geek culture :)
I am thinking to do a series of who's who on Smallville connections... like Martha Kent, was Lana Lang in the third film... or the voice of Jor-El was Zod in the first two films... there are quite a few...Delete
From cousin to mother - bit of a shock for Superman, I'm sure.ReplyDelete
hearing the banjos...play.Delete
And meant to ask if you're a hockey fan since the Blackhawks won last night. Two goals in the last few minutes - impressive.Delete
that first superlass sure is super!ReplyDelete
on all levels... yes!Delete
Supergirl is awesome and I'm surprised we haven't seen her more. If you haven't read the prequel comic Here's the link. I'd be surprised if she didn't show up in the sequel. http://imgur.com/a/mMCZmReplyDelete
Like you, I had a crush on Supergirl. Turner's take on Supergirl in the comics was a favorite, too.ReplyDelete
I love that first outfit :) Great post!ReplyDelete

I always have a slight issue with the actresses playing Supergirl, but then again I have so many of her comics who could live up, lol. I loved Smallville and all the through backs to the old but not forgotten.ReplyDelete
I remember watching the Supergirl movie many moons ago :) I never did get into Smallville though. I mostly remember really liking the mind-control part of the Supergirl film ::g::.ReplyDelete
