A lot has been written about Barbara Gordon and what she did for the representation of people with disabilities in comics. So I won’t bore you with all my views on the matter.

Suffice to say Barbara Gordon became, in almost 30 years of comic history, a shining example of how there are many ways to fight for what is right, not just in a uniform. And how courage is not jumping in front of a bullet - it’s picking yourself up after the bullet hits its mark.

She is also probably the strongest, most consistent and valued female character to ever appear in comics. But that’s just my opinion.

I can never fully commit to Babs as Batgirl because to me, she is always Oracle. Barbara was not broken, we did not need to fix her.
