Excellent work, Lorendiac! Getting bigger and better all the time.

I like that you've included where the stories can be found in recent reprints. I also like that you've included the writer on most of them. It would be nice to include the artist, too.

A few comments:

First, just because there's no where else to put it, several of the super-females (including Kirsten Wells and Luma Lynai) made appearances as ghosts in the THE KINGDOM: PLANET KRYPTON #1. I'm not sure how, or if, you want to include that, though.

>(The Kara Zor-El who has her own title right now is not the same person as the late, lamented Kara Zor-El of the Silver and Bronze Ages.)

Darn right!

>(In contrast, the Superboy who was later created in a test tube when Superman was "dead" only got to be taken into the family as Clark's adopted cousin.)

No need for the quotes. Per Dr. Occult, Superman really was dead.

>During Infinite Crisis, we saw bits of the "Tangent Universe," establishing that it is in fact possible to get from the main DCU timeline to Tangent's (or the other way) if necessary. This retroactively makes the Tangent Supergirl and the Tangent Powergirl eligible for my Timeline of characters who are "in continuity."

This was actually established as far back as THE KINGDOM #2, when we were first introduced to Hypertime. In the splash page that shows a myriad of different Hypertimelines, the Tangent Universe Powergirl, Supergirl, Batman, Flash, and Joker are all seen. We also get a glimpse of the GENERATIONS universe and several other Elseworlds/imaginary universes (none of which contain Supergirl, though).

Am I wrong, or haven't there been spoilery rumors that say "someone" has been watching the DCU, and is very curious about Kara Zor-El's existing, apparently knowing that she DIED during the original CRISIS?

If this is true, it might suggest that she's at least as much the Silver Age version as Superman is. A morphed version, but still the same.
