    • Abby: Okay, Gibbs. I know you think I'm Supergirl. Actually, my hair's probably more Wonder Woman or Isis or the Powerpuff Girl.

      The most well known Supergirl is Kara Zor-El/Kent (first introduced in 1959) who is the cousin of Superman a.k.a. Clark Kent and was brought back after her 1985 demise (and erase from existence) into the main DC comic continuity in 2004. Wonder Woman a.k.a. Diana Prince was first introduced in 1941 during what is known as the Golden Age of comic books, has been a main member of the DC superhero team The Justice League of America since 1960 and was featured in her own TV series (played by Lynda Carter) in the 70's. Isis is the main character from the 70's TV series The Secret of Isis who is a superhero tied to Egyptian mythology and had her own comic book series (made by DC) during the mid to late 70's. She was brought into mainstream DC continuity in 2006 as a counterpart for Captain Marvel villain Black Adam. The Powerpuff Girls is a cartoon series that ran for six seasons on Cartoon Network from 1998 to 2005 and revolves around three kindergarten age girls named Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup who are sisters and have super powers such as flight, super strength and laser vision which they use against monsters and enemies in order to protect their city Townsville. Since Supergirl has blonde hair, Abby brings up three female superheros with the same hair color as her. This (and the way she moves her fingers to describe the Powerpuff Girl's hairstyle) indicates that the Powerpuff Girl, she is referring to is Buttercup who has black hair like Abby.
