Comic Books

  • When Anya Corazón, a.k.a. "Araña", was first being fitted for costumes in Amazing Fantasy, one of her potential outfits resembled Supergirl's costume.
  • Big Bang Comics is an affectionate parody of Golden and Silver Age comic books. Christine Kelly "Ultragirl" is the Supergirl's expy, being a Flying Brick with laser vision and super senses, who happens to be Superman's expy's relative, and who eventually joins the future super-team Pantheon of Heroes.
  • Black Hammer: The Quantum League is blatantly meant to be the Legion of Super-Heroes, being a group of teenage heroes in the future whose name all featured variants of "Boy, Girl, Lad," and "Lass." One of their members, Hammer Lass is a very clear equivalent of Supergirl, even dating Archive V (the Brainiac 5 analog).

  • Powers: Retro Girl is a blond, female Flying Brick who wears cape and a Mini Dress Of Power.
  • Supreme: Suprema, the main character's adoptive blonde sister and cape-wearing Flying Brick is an intentional Supergirl expy created by Alan Moore as a homage to the Silver Age Superman.
  • Mighty Mouse: Issue 4 of the Marvel comic (part one of a parody of Crisis on Infinite Earths, of all things) introduces Mighty Mousette. Of course, considering what happened to her Kryptonian inspiration in the original story, this didn't last long...

  • In "Ayla and the Tests" of the Whateley Universe, Phase gets major grief from some other students because he's seen flying in the 'Supergirl' posture. In keeping with the series' love for metahumor, at one point Generator tries out several different flying poses, including the two-fisted "Superman" style and the one-arm-forward "Supergirl" posture.
  • Villains Don't Date Heroes!: Fialux is an obvious Supergirl expy, with an identical powerset and origin and a similar costume to her 2004 incarnation.
