Our Lives Together – Supergirl Also Overhears the DC Universe

In this feature, I will spotlight some of the more interesting examples of shared comic book universes. You know, crossovers that aren’t exactly crossovers.

The last time I did this feature, I spotlighted a similar instance featuring Superman, where Superman’s hearing is increased to the point where he hears the rest of the DC Universe, with snippets from over a DOZEN other DC books that came out that same month! A bunch of readers wrote in to suggest that I also feature something similar that occurred in the first issue of Supergirl in the New 52…

In the issue, written by Michael Green and Mike Johnson and drawn by Mahmud Asrar and Dan Green, Supergirl is adjusting to the powers she gained from being on Earth. It is a trying experience…

And sure enough, just like Byrne’s Superman issue, the three pieces of dialogue are from three DC comics that month (two of them even came out the same WEEK as Supergirl)…

Nightwing #1…

Aquaman #1…

and Birds of Prey #1…

Neat, huh?

Thanks for the suggestion, everyone who wrote in regarding this one!
