Although I've visited often and registered awhile back, I've never posted anything on KMC. I was hoping to change that last night, but discovered that the message I crafted, dependent on visual aids, could not be sent, because this forum doesn't allow the posting of links until you're "established".
So... I guess I'll set about trying to achieve that designation...
As the title says, I intend this to be a respect thread devoted to the Pre-Crisis Supergirl, Kara Zor-el.
Contributions are welcome.
I have a fairly decent store of material that I should be uploading in the next few days, but, again, I'm new to actually posting here, this being my first day doing so, so please bear with me.
Alright, let me get started by testing if I can at least send an image encoded within a single message, as this screen suggests I should be able to...
I guess I'll start out with episodes of Linda showing off her strength. For some reason, Supergirl showing off when she's NOT supposed to be Supergirl, i.e. in her civilian guise, nearly always seems more powerful and dramatic...
These won't be in any particular order to start, mainly because there is a size limit of 250 KB and I'm just trying to send what will go through...
Action Comics #351, page 28
Linda Lee Danvers, now Linda Lee Olsen, does some housecleaning...
In case anyone is wondering, Action Comics #360 was a special issue featuring Supergirl stories of the past. That is why you see her saving her parents for the first time 3 issues AFTER she is discussing, as an obviously more mature woman, how long she may or may not have been married to the guy she's lifting his car for.
Speaking of cars and such, I've actually got a thread on another message board devoted to them.
More than any other hero, even including her cousin, Superman, the early pre-Crisis Kara Zor-el occupies herself with the safe handling of pedestrians, passengers, and motor vehicles.
This was especially so for family, including not only her parents, but more newly introduced relatives as well...

I think I'll reach that number as a matter of course in the coming week, possibly even today, but that is very good to know.
Posting with image attachments is cool in that I don't need an outside Image Host provider to let people see my collection, but it has some obvious drawbacks.
One is the 250-KB size limit.
You'd be amazed how many picture files exceed that mark, and how difficult it is to edit down to make the cut while still having something big enough to see and of still reasonable quality.
Another drawback to trying to use attachments, which I JUST now discovered, is that, if you try to post visual attachments as installments of a series, mistakenly post one out of order, delete it and try to correct your mistake, you'll find you cannot do it.
You've got to post a whole 'nother message and start over again.
So I'm definitely looking forward to obtaining link-posting ability.
... and THEN give this second showing, from the very same Action Comics #303, where Linda saves Jan, the driver in the post above, from a SECOND car-related death, even as her saving Jan that self-same first time made the second time she saved her PARENTS once again from car-related death:
The reason I did not put images in the pre-crisis Kryptonian thread is that this thread is dedicated to Supergirl exclusively.
Mike, I know that there is a thread devoted to the MODERN-day version of Kara Zor-el, but I haven't found one on KMC that focuses on the 1959-1985 version.
The only thing I've seen on KMC about THIS version of Supergirl is on page 3 of the thread Hannibal was asking about, and, from what I can tell, not one of those pictures match the images I've shown so far.
If you do know of another place in KMC where these have been posted, however, please link me to it.
