On page 1 in Superman #670, Supergirl is in her civilian apparel, shopping at the Pelham Square Market in Queensland Park on a Sunday morning. Two high school students are checking her out admiringly. One of the teens is clearly black. The other is Hispanic or a lighter-skinned African-American.

The darker-skinned teen whispers to his friend, "Fills out them pants right, I'll say that. Here, bro, watch a master at work..."

The other teen whispers, "Lookin' fine, that girl!"

The darker-skinned teen tries to use a line to start up a conversation with her. He says to Kara, "Hey, think I seen you at school. You got Leahy for World Civ too?"

Kara responds, "Guys, guys. I heard every word you just said. And it's not like it's not flattering, in its way, but I'm just not--"

It is not clear from the context of this scene that Kara (Supergirl) actually attends school with these two youths. The "playa" teen seems to have simply been pretending to recognize Kara. It is likely that Leahy really is his World Civ teacher. But this may well be at a school other than the one that Kara attends.

Before Kara can further let the teens down gently by explaining her disinterest in their amorous intentions, she is attacked by alien mercenaries under the command of the anti-Kryptonian crusader Amalac. She instantly doffs her civilian clothing to reveal he Supergirl outfit and takes to the skies to repell the attack. The two teens are left watching her ascend, stunned by what they have seen.

The lighter-skinned teen mutters, "Holy--"

The darker-skinned teen, shocked, says, "She-- We were just talkin' to her -- and she was --"

The teens apparently recognize Supergirl now, but did not realize that is who they had been flirting with moments before.
