Rob's Room: Infinite Cover Versions-Crisis on Infinite Earths #7

Cover of Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 (Oct., 1985).  Original art by George Perez, Dick Giordano, Jerry Ordway.  (j-swim reminded me to finish this post...)  I found some strange mashups in this group.  There were even a few that "predated" the Crisis cover... ;)  Am curious how many of these were the original influence.  Again, let me know if you learn of any others in the comments section and I will add 'em!
"We live on remembering and honoring the past, but always looking to the future. 
Good-bye, Kara... Linda Lee... Supergirl. I will miss you forever. " - Superman
Does that Action Comics one count as it is a riff on Brave and Bold #84?
... yes, this is George Perez, himself, holding Supergirl...
...and the updates continue on this one! (8/9/17)

If I remember correctly, I think both Byrne and Perez have mentioned this cover as the inspiration for theirs: http://bit.ly/1quvRp0

And of course it all goes back to The Pietá.
