SUPERGIRL #8 (Apr 2012)
DC Comics

Cosplayer Alisa Norris (formerly Farrington, aka AlisaKiss), who inspired George Perez's New 52 Supergirl, was part of the Charlottesville White Nationalist rally. The march ended in violence and resulted in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer when James Allen Fields Jr. drove his car, at full speed, into a crowd of protesters.

According to, there's video footage of Alisa, holding hands with her husband Jonathon Norris, as he chant, "Jews will not replace us." removed all of her photos online, but kept the interview about how her online photos were used in George Perez's art (such as her facial features and body type). As a thank you, Perez sent Alisa the original cover art of Supergirl #8.
