Ho Yay / Supergirl

Go To
  • There has been a bit of tension between Supergirl and Batgirl before and after the Crisis On Infinite Earths:
  • In Supergirl (2005) issue #19, Kara meets Wonder Girl (Cassie Sandsmark)... and glomps and hugs her during their meeting.
  • An amusing situation has been pointed out regarding Cir-El's short tenure as Supergirl, specifically in the Actions Comics and Superman comics she appeared. She, Traci 13 and Natasha Irons had a team up arc in Action Comics #806-808 to help save Superman. The end of the story resulted them all laying together on the same bed. That in of itself is more amusing than anything but just a short while later in Superman #200 (2004) which was the same issue Cir-El was erased in, there was a pinup of the 3 girls which was a take on that scene and the 3 were in a much more romantic setup in it.
    • In an even funnier case Mike Deodato Jr. showed unused designs for the pinup and those were even MORE romantic with the girls caressing one another: link.
    • Especially amusing given many years later in Rebirth, the Superwoman series established Natasha Irons and Traci 13 as being in a relationship...
  • When Supergirl's existence is finally revealed publicly in The Unknown Supergirl, she is introduced to the President and First Lady. As John Kennedy tells her he knows she'll continue to use her powers for truth and justice, etc.note , she says "Thank you, Mr. President!" but her thought bubble reads "The President's wife looks — Gorgeous!". Now, is that an erotic response or, like so many girls her age, admiring a woman (twice her age) well known for her poise, charm and style whom many teenage girls looked up to as a role model?
