The latest in the long line of "Homo Magi," humans born with innate powers of sorcery, Traci is forbidden by her father, Doctor Thirteen, to practice magic, since her mother died due to magical influences. Traci moves to the Suicide Slum of Metropolis, determined to live on her own (with her iguana Leeroy). There she begins to tap into the "urban magic" of Metropolis, and assumes the name of Girl 13, becoming a super hero of sorts. She meets Superboy, who is attracted to her, but the feeling is not mutual. She uses her magic to defend an injured Superman from a ghostly female ninja, along with fellow "Supergirls," Natasha Irons and Cir-El, with whom she forms a friendship. The Spectre's attack on magic does not seem to have had an effect on her powers.
