This issue saw the death of Supergirl. While in modern comics the death of a major character has almost become par for the course nowadays as characters are almost always resurrected and brought back to life soon after, but back then having a character like Kara die was actually quite shocking to fans, who had not been used to seeing major characters actually die. As a result they  began to wonder if other characters may share the same fate before the series was finished. Of course, little did they know that Supergirl’s death was a foreshadowing of Wonder Woman’s own apparent demise.
