1959 showed progressive and steady growth for DC Comics during the Silver Age era. If any single event in 1959 proved more important than the introduction of the Legion of Super-Heroes in 1958, it was the introduction of Superman's teenage cousin Supergirl. Supergirl debuted in Action Comics #252, and soon began making regular appearances in Action Comics and later Adventure Comics. Like the Legion, Supergirl's popularity continued to grow until she was finally granted her own title in 1972.
