Supergirl's Favourite Nightclub is Called The Lazarus Pit

Infinite Frenemies is the latest digital-first edition of the DC Super Hero Girls series, now written by
Amanda Deibert and drawn by Erich Owen. The series, in a variety of media, has been a strong performer in attracting young female readers to the characters, by remaking them into a high school setting. As it is a digital first, more die-hard superhero fans people have been picking it up right now. Which mean there was more than the usual reaction to the name of Metropolis' latest and brightest nighttime hotspot, from a time before shutdown. Welcome to The Lazarus Pit.

The Lazarus Pit, as any fule kno, is a series of naturally occurring phenomena in the DC Universe, usually controlled by Ra'a Al Ghul, which can heal people or bring them back from the dead, though often in a twisted form. So what a perfect name for a mosh pit night club in the heart of Metropolis, for Supergirl to enjoy?
