The Greatest Supergirl Stories Ever Told!
Every day in May we will reveal the greatest stories ever told starring a particular character or written/drawn by a particular creator (and throughout the month, you’ll get daily chances to vote for NEXT week’s lists). These lists are voted on by YOU, the reader!
Here is the list of characters/creators featured so far (along with the rules on how to vote).
Today’s list is the Greatest Supergirl Stories Ever Told!
10. Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the Eighth Grade
Like Tiny Titans for Beast Boy, I don’t think a specific story arc is needed here.
9. Tales of the Legion of Super-Heroes #314-315 “The Trial of Ontiir”
I was honestly surprised that this interesting Legion two-parter was considered by so many to be one of their top Supergirl stories, but hey, here it is!
8. Supergirl #1-6
Jeph Loeb’s first story arc on Supergirl’s current title – art by Ian Churchill.
7. Supergirl #75-81 “Many Happy Returns”
Peter David’s final storyline on Supergirl.
6. Superman/Batman #8-13 “The Supergirl from Krypton”
Jeph Loeb and Michael Turner re-introduce Superman’s Kryptonian cousin into the DC Universe!
5. Supergirl #1-8 “Peter David’s first Supergirl story arc”
Peter David and Gary Frank introduce a new take on Supergirl as the alien version of Supergirl merges with a troubled young woman.
4. Action Comics #252 “Supergirl’s introduction”
Otto Binder and Al Plastino introduce us to Supergirl!
3. Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 “The Death of Supergirl”
Marv Wolfman and George Perez help us say goodbye to Supergirl, as she sacrifices herself to save her cousin.
2. Superman #149 “The Death of Superman”
When Supergirl was still a “secret weapon” for Superman, she made her heroic debut under tragic circumstances in this brilliant “Imaginary Story.”
1. Christmas with the Superheroes #2 “Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot”
Man, remember when Alan Brennert would occasionally pop into DC Comics and have a great one-off story? Well, this Deadman story is one of those tales, featuring Kara AFTER her death in Crisis. I’m sure Mark Waid is proud of this story being #1.
That’s the list! I’m sure there is a lot of agreement and disagreement with the list out there! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section!
And please vote for the lists that are still up for grabs here!
