Things we need to talk about when we talk about Kara Zor-El.
Theoretically she’s stronger, faster, better than Superman.
Some of that missing time was spent orbiting the sun. Her capability for absorbing solar radiation is higher than his (which is probably why it took so long for recharge in human for a day).
Kryptonian was her first language and she swears by Krypton’s gods.
She, unlike Clark, was a person fully formed before she ever left Krypton. She remembers tech that humanity won’t catch up to until the 31st century, knows how to build it. From her perspective we are so hopelessly backwards.
She is so much more the alien god that Lex Luthor, Maxwell Lord, and the Goddamn Batman fear than Clark Kent could ever be.
