In any case, Superman's cousin, though duplicating his Kryptonian heritage and abilities, survives to this day as a separate and vital character to the DC Universe. (We won't go into that unfortunate element of the original character's "death" in the Crisis on Infinite Earth's Saga, which many say is the obvious division point between the original Supergirl and any subsequent reboot, re-imagine, ret-con or anything new 52 (i.e. the current ... yechh.. DC Universe).
For me, regardless of such literary hocus pocus, there is still an Earth-1 where a Kryptonian girl still happily flies through the sky under Earth's Yellow Sun.
Now, all we needed as a Funko POP figure of Supergirl. Finding none (at the time of this writing), I had to create my own custom. Though she's undergone many costume changes over the years (red skirt, bare midriff, white t-shirt, headband, etc...), this is the original classic Silver Age Supergirl:
- The head is from an Ariel POP figure, repainted.
- The body is from a Wonder Woman POP figure, repainted, with the belt sculpted on with Magic Sculp, a decal emblem added as well as a trimmed down Superman POP cape attached.
