Supergirl (DC)(Post Crisis)(01 - Matrix)
Real Name: Matrix (Disembodied Protoplasm)
Search for 'Supergirl (DC)(Post Crisis)(01 - Matrix)' on Amazon

Artificial. Disembodied. Protoplasm. From a pocket universe. Say it together now. It won't make any more sense. Letting the Supergirl name go fallow for only about a year, Byrne brings back the name--and completely guts not only the name, but the reason Supergirl of Earth 1 died.

Basically, her backstory goes like this: Lex Luthor of a pocket universe creates a protoplasmic entity to go to the DCU and retrieve Superman to defeat some escaped Kryptonian criminals. But this artificial life-form, this "matrix"--found a home in the DCU, at least after a period of time when it was seeking an identity. In the earliest appearances, it was transforming itself with some regularity, taking on male and female forms. Eventually, though, it settled on Supergirl as a superhero persona and "Mae" (presumably short for "Matrix") as a secret identiy. As Mae, she explored a romantic relationship with the DCU Lex Luthor and briefly served with the Teen Titans.


First Appearance: Superman (1987) #16

Clark Kent (DC)(Matrix)
Matrix (DC) (01 - Protoplasm/Supergirl)
