"Batgirl! I've been running into you a lot lately - you sure know how to fill up a girl's lungs!"
When I first read the issue of Superman Family that features this breathtaking panel, I was only seven or eight years old, and boy did it make an impression. Look how happy Supergirl is. Look at that pose! It all seems kind of blase to Batgirl, though - like she fills up superheroine lungs all the time.
"I hope you're recovered, Supergirl, because we're pressed for time - and your powers have been reduced!"
Is it just me, or is this panel chock full of subtle double entendres? Maybe I was only seeing what I wanted to see. Maybe I'm still seeing it.
