CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #7 (Oct 1985)
DC Comics

Excerpt: In order to sell the stakes of the story and the consequences, Wolfman made a list of DC characters who could be killed in the course of the event. That turned out to be pretty much everybody, but a couple of major deaths resonate still, including Supergirl.
