One vlogger mentioned that Supergirl saves the Deaf school, so I had to check it out and purchase that particular issue (Supergirl #65/February '02"), but after reading it, it seems to reinforce our misconceptions, nothing new here, you know what I mean like being lipreaders and all that stuff, anyway the comic treated deafness as a birth defect, blaming it on a chemical plant, and the school livelihood is dependent on the settlement won in a lawsuit to keep it operational, but the defendents' lawyers kept on filing appeals after appeals to avoid taking responsibilities for the environment disaster. Supergirl steps in enlisting her friends to protest, sounds familiar, against the plant, creating unwanted media attention. The storyline, forget it, a disappointment, therefore I'm giving a thumb down.
