Carter was involved in the military, training soldiers and Green Berets to ignore pain and torture so that when captured they were less likely to release information.


Lana talks with Carter.

Carter met with Lana Lang who she came to train in ignoring pain and torture. Carter dismissed Lana at first claiming that she would not be able to handle it but she assured him that it was in the worlds best interests. He began training her and at first she couldn't handle it with Carter provoking her to succeed. He trained her for 7 months in which she learned to ignore pain which made her a more formidable human.
