!!Batgirl I - Barbara Gordon
* In ''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths #4'', Barbara is frightened of dying for real this time, so she calls her best friend ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]]'' and confides her fears to her. Supergirl right away tells her she doesn't need super-powers to be a hero.
-->'''Supergirl:''' Batgirl -- you called me?\\
'''Batgirl:''' The city... it's so empty. Mostly everyone is staying inside... with their loved ones... awaiting the end. I -- I think this time it's really coming.\\
'''Supergirl:''' I know the feeling. And you're right -- hardly anyone's outside. Not even the criminals. But there must be a way to stop whatever's out there. I'm not ready to give in so easily.\\
'''Batgirl:''' Supergirl... Linda -- I've faced death so often because I never truly believed I would die. But now -- Now I feel so useless, so helpless, so worthless -- and so very, very scared.\\
'''Supergirl:''' Everyone is, Barbara. I've spoken to Superman and the Titans -- They say Flash may have died. And other heroes... some villains, too -- have disappeared. I'm scared, too -- but I can't let that stop me from doing what I have to.\\
'''Batgirl:''' Easy for you to say. Look at your powers, I-I'm nothing. I-I don't think I was ever cut out for playing hero.\\
'''Supergirl:''' Barbara, there are thousands of people out there -- without powers like mine... the police, firemen, soldiers -- They're all ordinary people trying their best to keep this world from falling apart before its time.
* In the ''DC Universe Holiday Special 2008: A Day Without Sirens'', a "Day Without Sirens" is proposed right before Christmas. Commissioner Gordon believes such an initiative is doomed to failure. The criminals of Gotham would never heed such a calling. However, the day proceeds without police sirens.

-->'''Oracle:''' Just rest easy knowing you did something special today.\\
'''Supergirl:''' You really think so? Do you think this one day is going to make a difference?\\
'''Oracle:''' I know so. Never discount the healing power of a little hope, Kara.
