Which was revealed as "wrong". Also things were pretty much in flux after COIE, with her remembering Kal-L for a while and the first Powergirl-mini which set off her post-crisis origin.

I guess the full story, how she started her post-crisis life wasn't told, till JSA Classified 1-4, where we saw in flashbacks, how she got famed as Superman's cousin, followed the reveal as fake, with the subsequent tongue-lashing of Ma Kent.

Her life was a virtual fantasy, spent in her ship, so if she was told to be a member of the L or EL family, it came from there.

First I've heard about Martha being hostile to her. Would like to hear more. >:-D

But the point is that I don't believe the post-Crisis version said anything about her being an "El". Just that she believed she was Kryptonian. So how (or why) the "cousin" thing was settled on until Arion showed up is a little unclear.
