Kara/Maxwell is a rare pairing of Kara Danvers (Kara Zor-El/Supergirl) and Maxwell Lord from the Supergirl TV series.


Kara and Maxwell first appeared together (and first meet each other) in the third episode of the first season "Fight or Flight" when Kara as Supergirl saves Maxwell from Reactron. Maxwell, however, is not a fan of Supergirl or aliens and is often the antagonist of the first season. They have an enemy/ally type relationship due to the fact Maxwell is often the antagonist and they often work together in the end to help save National City.


The overall fandom of Kara/Maxwell is very rare in the Supergirl fandom. Only a handful of works are posted to Archive of Our Own and Fanfiction.Net (many are crossposted). There are no pairing type vids on YouTube and only a small amount of fannish activity on Tumblr - usually to announce fics being posted, although some general Supergirl tumblrs post gifsets of them together (canon scenes). The fact that it is such a small pairing might be due to the lack of interest in Maxwell Lord character most Supergirl fans have or others interest in Kara being paired up with others (such as Kara/Cat, Kara/James, and Kara/Winn) and Maxwell paired up with Alex Danvers.
