Emotion sensing?

Think Deanna Troi from Star Trek Next Generation.  She's just able to control hers better.

No, because Linda Danvers replaced Kara Zor-El as Supergirl in "Many Happy Returns".  But Linda Lee Danvers (aka Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl) appeared in the first Kristen Wells Superwoman story.  

And if you accept "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow" as canon in regards to Superwoman, not only does Kara Zor-El's memorial statue appear in the Fortress of Solitude, but a young Kara with the Legion of Super-Heroes actually visits Superman!

sikkbones, the original Pre-Crisis Kara Zor-El of Argo City (Silver/Bronze Age Supergirl) first took the name "Linda Lee" when she arrived on Earth. That was the name she used in the Midvale Orphanage until she was adopted by the Danvers.  Then her legal name was changed to Linda Lee Danvers.

The Post-Crisis, Peter David "Supergirl" series featured Linda Danvers (no middle name was given) from Leesburg.

At the end of "Many Happy Returns", when that Kara Zor-El goes back to her "Earth-1", her vague memories of Linda and Leesburg prompt Kara into naming herself "Linda Lee".  Supposingly she would later be adopted by a Danvers couple, and history would continue until the Crisis.

"Whatever Happened..." is introduced as an imaginary story, after all, so Jimmy's death shouldn't effect the existence of Superwoman (she could still be from an alternate timeline).  Also, I find it hard to imagine that Jimmy, despite his lack of chest hair, remained a virgin for 45 years, despite having never married (at least longer than for the course of one issue).  

Didn't Superwoman show up at all in Crisis?

As far as I know, she only showed up in stories that were written either by Elliot Maggin or by Alan Moore.

In other words: no, she didn't.

FWIW, Kristin Wells -did- seem to know how to handle a fainting psychic in Miracle Monday.
