While everyone's asleep, it's my chance to change to Supergirl and look over my new home town!
Once, I'd have avoided adoption by using a clever super-feat...! But since I'm no longer Superman's secret super-helper, there's no reason why I shouldn't be adopted by a nice couple! I'll try to be a good daughter!
How ironic! Once when I had my Supergirl powers, I could fly miles in a second! But now... without my super-powers, I'm as slow-moving as any ordinary human! It's frustrating, living like this!... I want to leap... fly... as I used to, but... I can't!
1692! Why, that's the year when the "Golden Witch" terrorized this section of the country! We talked about her in school last term!... So many people saw the witch, some historians suspect there may be some truth to the weird story!
What am I to do if they can't find an antidote for me at the city of Kandor? Is my usefulness at an end? What good is a part-time Supergirl!? And I don't know where Starfire and the Professor are either! Will I ever become my old self again? C'mon, girl -- Stop the self-pity routine!
What am I to do? If I rescue Johnny -- I'll have to rescue Nasty, too! And I might slip up somewhere and she might be able to trip me up and prove I'm Supergirl! But I've got to save them! Even Supergirl's secret identity isn't worth one innocent life!
Now hear me, all you inhabitants of this great planet -- it is for you decide on changing the barbaric rules governing this contest! Your idea of avoiding wars by having two warriors do battle was to end needless dying, was it not?
I'm sick of the whole rotten news business! My articles and the actions of your favorite camera operator cost a man his life! That's enough for me! I've got better things to do with my life than stay in a business that exploits people.
We don't do it for the glory. We don't do it for the recognition... We do it because it needs to be done. Because if we don't, no one else will. And we do it even if no one knows what we've done. Even if no one knows we exist. Even if no one remembers we ever existed
Don't you get it, Rebel? You're not important! You never were! You were just-- something to do! Something for Supergirl and me to bounce off of for a while until people and events of real consequence came along!
How can I be calm? Kal-El has always been like a brother to me-- guiding me, teaching me to use my super-abilities-- loving me-- And now, when he needs me most-- when he could be in deadly danger, perhaps dying-- I've failed him! Don't you see that, Wonder Woman?
Besides, I could do with the time to myself... to sit back and think. It's selfish, I know, but I deserve... Whoa! There you go again, Linda! There's nothing selfish about wanting to get into yourself for a while instead of thinking about the whole blasted world! I do enough of that as Supergirl — and wasn't the whole reason for this move... to give myself space to be just plain Linda Danvers?
That was the last time I saw Richard. Tonight I know what it is to be human. Tonight my super skin is still invulnerable, but my Richard is never coming back, and my heart is broken into a million pieces.
I've been Supergirl for such a long time, it seems. Not that I'd give that up for anything... but I feel like I've totally lost hold of the part of me that doesn't scoot around the universe in shorts and a cape! I've forgotten what it feels like to be just a person... Instead of a symbol!
When you're floating in space... it's sooo quiet. And everyone talks so sweetly... and softly... It's nice. It's... peaceful. Not like here. Here people yell at you... or hurt you... or think you're an idiot or crazy... or let you down.
Look-- Here's the problem. You've done some bad things, but I'm really, really upset right now. So much so that, honestly, I don't trust myself. And if you attak me or I attack you... I will hurt you. I'll hurt you worse than you've ever been hurt in your whole life. I can carve you up as soon look at you. I can break you, boil you, freeze you. I can do things you can't imagine. Things I can't imagine, until I have to. And then I'll improvise.
I defeated Martin not through hate--but love! I used super-hypnotism to make myself believe I was playing meteor-catch with Superman as I used to do! So when I punched Prof. Martin, there was no super-hatred within me for him to siphon!
Now I know what the expression to get hit with a ton of bricks means! And my uniform -- my indestructible uniform-- it looks like it's been through a shredding machine! The only thing that could have done this is magic-- the most powerful kind of magic! This Zond is the real thing!
