It would be kind of neat to get a Supergirl robot in the tree.

Quote from: SuperMonkey
"Physically, she's the mightiest female of all time!  But at heart, she's as gentle and sweet and is as quick to tears as any ordinary girl!  I guess that's why everyone who meets her loves her!"
 - Action Comics No. 285, February 1962

Is this website suddenly called "Superman Through One Age?"

That trait evaporated so early on, it's like claiming the Fantastic Four are from Midway City (they were in good old NYC by issue 2). It's worth noting that SuperBOY passed the Super-Teacher's tests, but that robot, in his return appearance, was quite able to convince SuperGIRL to kill.

That's what I always liked about Supergirl in the SUPERMAN FAMILY: she was a very proud, emotional, volatile person. Superboy/man had absolute iron control over himself, but under the right set of circumstances...if you tick off Supergirl or threaten someone she loves...she will rip arms off. The Loeb characterization is nothing new.

There are many occasions where Supergirl cried: that Cary Bates story where the Parasite stole the Galactic Golem's powers and she believed Superman died. In the Jim Shooter story where she was forced to leave the 30th Century forever by a cloud of Kryptonite. But all that is big, understandable stuff, and underneath it all, Supergirl is a girl.

But flowers from a boy? Nah.

Quote from:
I would have also have liked to have seen that teeny little girl put Mongul in a hammerlock and make him cry....

Heh heh heh! Nice!

Quote from: Gangbuster
The other sad, tragic thing about Supergirl is that we've never seen her grow up.

I think one of the absolute best things about Supergirl is that we DID get to see her grow up and become independent.

Did you read the stories where she became a soap opera actress, a model, a social worker, and a congresswoman? Or the Paul Kupperberg stuff where she fought white supremacists?

Quote from: TELLE
You're right, even though she was not an adult like Lois or Lana, her heart was always in the right place and she was often emotionally disturbed by aspects of her adventures. 

Hmmm, now that you say it, this is true: she had a lot of emotional range, and was pretty competent. She never tried to trick anybody.

No, but I did see her independently get whacked in the head by some kind of pillar in Crisis. It was kind of traumatizing.

We've seen her grow up enough to wear that crazy headband and become boring before, but what I meant was that we've never seen her grow old]/i]. We've seen what Superman is like when he's older, because we've had Kal-L, the Kingdom Come Superman, and tons of future stories. We've never had this with Supergirl, and I think it would be interesting to see a story about her when she's say, 60.

I wonder, if she moved to the Legion's future where it seems almost everyone has superpowers, would she return to her role of guidance counsellor, politician, or actress?   Or would she be venerated as a legend?

A modern team-up I'd like to see: Superwoman and an older Supergirl.
