Comet the Super-Horse was the pet horse belonging to Supergirl. His super-powers were magically endowed. Born as Biron, a centaur, in ancient Greece, the witch Circe gratefully gave him a potion to turn him fully human as a reward for his action in preventing Maldor, a rival sorcerer, from poisoning her water. However, Maldor substituted another potion and so Biron turned into a full horse instead. Circe was unable to reverse the curse but gave him super-powers and made him immortal.

In revenge, Maldor trapped Biron on an asteroid in the constellation of Sagittarius. When Supergirl's ship from Argo City passed by, it broke the mystical force field, allowing Comet to escape. Comet met Supergirl and they became close friends. While on a mission with Supergirl on another planet, he was given the opportunity to turn into a human at any time a comet passed through the solar system. As a man, he adopted the identity of 'Bronco' Bill Starr, a rodeo star whom Supergirl fell in love with.

Later, at the behest of the Legion of Super-Heroes, Comet joined Krypto, Streaky and Beppo to form the Legion of Super-Pets to defeat alien invaders, the Brain Globes of Rambat. Thereafter, this group met often in the 30th Century, and accepted Chameleon Boy's pet, Proty II, as their fifth member.
