Guardian Girl age progression by Willdabeast-0305 Guardian Girl age progression by Willdabeast-0305
Earlier, I drew a picture of Paragon at different phases in his life.
Recently, I had the urge to draw a similar piece for Guardian Girl.
For him, the different ages were important stages in his career. However, she didn't change names and teams a number of times, so she's always just been "Guardian Girl". And so the ages shown here are kind of arbitrary-- mostly just for comparison to Paragon. She did, however, go through a number of costume changes-- probably quite a few that aren't shown here.

She, like many traditionally trained heroes, started out as a Novice Hero (or "sidekick").
Normally, pre-teen sidekicks only undergo training, or go on non-combat assignments, but those with exceptional survivability (such as those with superhuman strength and toughness-- like she and Defender Boy) are sometimes allowed on missions that are expected to be not very dangerous.
Sidekicks usually graduate in their late teens, and are allowed to join a team without their mentor. At this point, they are also allowed to design their own suit and even change their name, if they so choose. For example, when Defender Boy graduated from being a sidekick, he dropped the Boy from his name, designed a new suit, and joined The Super Seven.
Later, once certain requirements are met, they can be given Full-Hero status. At that point, they are no longer required to be on a team, though many still do. Paragon and Guardian Girl are independent heroes, but others join groups like First Strike (like Pharaoh, Tirade, and others).
This only applies to traditionally trained heroes, of course. Others might start out independent at a younger age, such as those who discover their powers unexpectedly or are forced to take up the mantle of heroism due to extreme circumstances. Such heroes are still expected to follow certain official rules, though.
