- Harsher in Hindsight: In the last page of Supergirl vol. 2, this paragraph was inserted: "It is at this dramatic moment that we reluctantly suspend publication of Supergirl. In the near future we hope to announce the reappearance of the Maid of Steel in a new magazine! Meanwhile, you can look forward in July to seeing Supergirl at your local movie theater as well as in DC's magazine adaptation! IT'S A DATE!" Shortly after the movie bombed, DC killed the character because they didn't care about her at all, and Kara Zor-El didn't reappear for nearly twenty years.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The Gang is a super-team of Color-Coded Characters: Red, Blue, Yellow and Green. Does it sound familiar?
- Signature Scene: The cover of issue #19 in which Supergirl fights Supergirl has been referenced several times.
YMMV / Supergirl (1982)
