Celebrate Supergirls 60th Birthday

Hi everyone and Happy Batman 80th

This year it’s also Supergirl’s 60th Birthday, and while her first appearance in Action Comics 252 is marked as the May issue, it seems that the on-sale-date according to GCD was March 31st. With DC only focusing on Superman and Batman’s Birthdays and not giving any indication on when to celebrate the Girl of Steel on her 60th anniversary, it seems like Supergirl fans are looking to March 31st as her 60th Birthday.

That’s tomorrow!

There seems to be nothing planned with watchalongs and celebrations and special issues for Kara’s 60th, so I put together a list of some of her appearances you can watch here and for free on youtube.

If you are a fan or maybe you haven’t seen much but is still curious about the character - why not delve into the Girl of Steel on her 60th?

With that said - Happy Birthday Kara!

Here are some of her adventures

Why not start with her first appearance in Action Comics 252:


They have 7 issues of her beginnings in New 52


And the start of her Rebirth run as well:



Didn’t realize it was her 60th Birthday, that’s awesome! Shame DC doesn’t call out milestones like that, although being the same year as Batman’s is probably bad timing. Well happy 60th Girl Of Steel!


Cool. Happy Birthday, Kara!


Very cool, I’ll be sure to read some of those comics tomorrow


Thanks for putting this together, Coville!

Thank you very much for an excellent post and putting the spotlight on another DC super star that is celebrating a well deserved major anniversary this year!

I think I’ll re-watch the STAS two-parters that featured Supergirl. They’re quite wonderful.

While we have a decent amount of Supergirl comics on the service right now, just imagine all of the Supergirl titles/runs/related content that will be here soon once the full digital library is up! I’m thinking:

-The Daring Adventures of Supergirl
-the Peter David series
-her 2005-2011 ongoing
-Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes
-the entirety of her New 52 ongoing
-Justice League United
-Convergence: Supergirl: Matrix
-Convergence: The Adventures of Superman
-the Rebirth ongoing up to a year ago

All of that material will allow us to continue the Maid of Might/Girl of Steel’s anniversary well into the rest of the year. Go Kara/Linda/Matrix!


For my part, I’ve written 5 Supergirl themed questions for today’s “ANSWER… THE QUESTION!” round.


Happy Birthday, Kid.

I’ve tagged the CW show and Melissa a couple of times on Twitter, hoping that the show will do something to acknowledge the anniversary tonight.

In the meantime, Happy Birthday, Supergirl! #Supergirl60


Wow! Thanks for sharing this with us @Coville. I bookmarked this thread so fast !

Happy birthday, Supergirl!


Thank you all. Really happy to see others love for the character.

Thank you Mark for the hashtag. Lots of love being shared on Twitter under #Supergirl60 today, from both fans, artists and writers. I hope we get to see something from DC officially before the end of the day as well.
