Supergirl: Wings - 2001

"Wings" by J.M. DeMatteis and Jamie Tolagson.

In this Elseworlds tale, Kara (aka Matrix, aka Supergirl) is not a Kryptonian cousin to Kal-El; rather, she's an angel who "falls" to Earth, and is met by...a stranger:
I had never read this book before, so seeing it for the first time was a real treat--it's a wonderful story, beautifully told and well drawn.

It also features J.M. DeMatteis' slightly more lighthearted take on the Stranger (which he started back when he had the Stranger guest-starring in the Dr. Fate solo book)--at one point, he shows Supergirl how she can possess the bodies of various people, as that is something he can do, as well.

He says it helps him understand mortals better--plus, "it's fun, too."
