It kind of makes you wonder what Justice League lineup combo ever published could have defeated Doomsday that time with no casualties.
Maybe the full Satellite Era League with backup from the Marvel Family?

In some communities, people never pass up an opportunity for sanctimonious posturing.

Yeah and I wondered where were all his super cousins, cats, dogs etc?
Kara didn't exist in the Post Crisis era. Not until Superman #200 changed history and allowed "Public Enemies" and "The Supergirl From Krypton" to introduce her in the DCU. The only Kara Zor-El that existed was a ghostly apparition that only Deadman could see. The other Supergirl, was the Matrix Supergirl created by the Lex Luthor from a pocket universe, which itself was created by the Time Trapper. She got knocked out in the first fight with Doomsday and did not participate in all subsequent rematches. Kara herself would not fight Doomsday until "New Krypton", when she and Clark fought Doomsday and tried to take him off Earth, when all the other Kryptonians attacked and killed him.
That was a different Kara Zor-El. She wasn't from the main universe and you know that. She was from the Pre-Crisis universe and had been shunted to the Post Crisis universe, because of the Fatalist. But aside from that, there had not been a Kara Zor-El that was born on the Krypton that Superman came from. This was clear in "Man Of Steel" and all subsequent stories until Superman #200, which changed things.
-I read the posts. Good to go back to the whole Death/Return era and not listen to guys who were 6 years old when it happened telling me how everyone thought it was bad.
-I saw "Kara didn't exist in the Post Crisis era". Thought that registered: Hold on now. She sure did exist Post-Crisis and was even in Post-Crisis Supergirl stories. Kept reading.
-Then read "Not until Superman #200 changed history and allowed "Public Enemies" and "The Supergirl From Krypton" to introduce her in the DCU". Thought: Nope. I'm pretty sure original Kara was reintroduced in the DCU long before this new Kara. Continued.
-Then read: "The only Kara Zor-El that existed was a ghostly apparition that only Deadman could see". Now this is what made me respond because that wasn't true. Besides Kara showing up in Supergirl as Linda's spirit/guardian angel/etc. that Linda communicated with, there was Many Happy Returns. Was done on purpose to bring back the original Kara into the DCU (for sales). Even was set up for Kara to be in a series with Linda as Superwoman and Power Girl if it continued.
If you said "Kara from Post Crisis Superman's Krypton didn't exist", then I wouldn't have said anything. But that wasn't said and the "the only Kara that existed" thing lead to response.

Ah, the memories this brings back. It used to be that at fairly regular intervals I'd see threads (on this site or others) with confused fans asking such questions as: "Hey! Just how many different Supergirls have there been, anyway? What happened to the ones who aren't doing anything in the comic books right now? Why can't DC pick one version of 'Supergirl' and stick to it like glue?" And so forth.
I finally started trying to provide one-stop shopping for such questions by researching all I could on the subject in a valiant effort to "clarify things." A few years ago I updated and posted my latest draft of a master list of the first appearances (and "last appearances," if they died) of everybody who's ever appeared in a DC comic book that was somehow "connected to continuity" and who called herself "Kara," and/or "Supergirl," and/or "Superwoman," and/or "Power Girl," and/or other relevant varations (such as "Super-Lois" and "Super-Lana"). With notes on how some of those characters (such as the blond ghost whom Deadman once chatted with) might or might not be the same person as one or more of the "other" characters on my list!
The results of my research are still available at: Timeline of First and Final Appearances of Every Supergirl, Superwoman, Etc. (5th Draft)
