Ed Gross at CloserWeekly.com has published an excellent article in which he explores the many interpretations of Supergirl on film, in animation, and in video games.
Supergirl was created in 1959 by writer Otto Binder and artist Al Plastino. Journalist Louis Black, who knew Otto well, comments to us, “One would be hard-pressed to argue that Otto was a feminist, but that having more to do with the times than his outlook. He was proud of creating her. He clearly knew what he was doing and was conscious of the importance of women superheroes.”
