* In ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} issue 20, Karen and her counterpart talk:
-->'''SG:''' I'm sorry, Kara. I didn't mean anything by it. It's just that this is the one place where I shouldn't have to worry about anything. So this is all incredibly frustrating. And when I get frustrated I say some pretty stupid things.\\
'''PG:''' I remember when I was like that, too.\\
'''SG:''' That's good to hear. If I can grow into at least half the woman you are, then maybe there's some hope for me...
