A couple of weeks ago, I posted this cover by Mike Maihack who proposed an all-ages Supergirl/Batgirl for the DC Fifty-Too web project. His concept of Supergirl arriving at Gotham High and slowly becoming friends with Barbara caused enough of a stir on the web that over on his blog, Maihack did a 6 panel page for this version of the characters.
Here is the link: http://cowshell.com/buffalog/2011/09/02/a-little-6-panel-batgirlsupergirl-comic/
I don't think that rotating Supergirl costume would work in any other vehicle other than an all ages book. And I like that Maihack captures some of the more famous looks of Supergirl as she whisks in and out of costume. Supergirl seems bright, sunny, and optimistic here.
Here is a blurb by Maihack about his take on the Supergirl/Batgirl relationship from Babs' perspective, at least at its beginning.
As for Batgirl, it’s important to note she’s not just a younger female Batman. Where Batman has become almost superhuman in his ability to do ANYTHING, Barbara has to work really, really hard to do what she does! I mean, she’s naturally super bright, but I imagine she still trains and disciplines her mind and body to a ridiculous degree both day and night in order to not look like a complete fool fighting next to the likes of Batman and Nightwing cleaning up the gritty streets of Gotham City. And then along comes this wonder-teen from Metropolis who’s able to do it all so effortlessly. And with better hair. That would be a fun relationship to explore.
Of course, this is a theoretical comic. But I don't know how long I would want to read a book where Batgirl seems jealous of Supergirl. I don't want to see 'Mean Girls' between Babs and Kara. Still, this is a cute six panels, one I will share with the supergirls at home.
But seriously, can't we just get Cosmic Adventures in the 9th Grade??
