I just saw some scans from Adventure Comics #397, where Supergirl teams up with Wonder Woman. However, of interest is that a couple of times during the story, Supergirl uses super-telepathy to get information from people. Was this some power she had temporarily, or was it simple an editorial mistake?

In Justice League of America #75 BC's sonic blast is said to be generated by her brain, so the idea there isn't too out of line. I don't know when her cry was first represented as coming from her throat. For a period she rarely used it. You'll note there's no mention of it in the Alex Toth two-parter from Adventure Comics. In Justice League of America #110 she "throws back her head-- and sings" for "the first time in many months", but also talks as she's doing it (unless she breaks off singing to talk).

After checking Michael Fleisher's Encyclopedia of Comic Book Heroes: Volume 2 Wonder Woman, it seems that anyone can send a "telepathic message" but you need the mental radio to receive it!

And the only people who had a mental radio in America were Wonder Woman, Etta Candy, Steve Trevor and, *ahem* Diana Prince!

Thanks for the clarity, Philip! That's sort of how actual radio works -- broadcasters broadcast all the time, but you can't pluck it out of the air without a receiver.
