Alura, as she appears in Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade. Alura In Zee is the name of Zor-El's wife and Kara Zor-El's mother, on Krypton. She lived in Argo City.
In current comics continuity, she is the leader of the city of
Kandor and hence the entire population of New Krypton. She has released General Zod from the Phantom Zone, as well.
Modern Age Comics
Superman: New Krypton, Alura and her husband were found to be alive on Kandor. Alura shows signs of xenophobia, or rather superiority over Humans, and a disregard for their lives. After her husband is murdered by Reactron, she becomes the de facto leader of New Krypton.
Alura in this novel is a very comforting wife to Zor-El, as she is a skilled botanist and is good at healing using plants.
Alura is only mentioned in Smallville. In that show, Zor-El is a menace widowed , and became interested in
his brother's wife, Lara Lor-Van.
This version of Alura seems to simply be a typical housewife, albeit on the planet Krypton.
