Batgirl (2011-) #6

I can understand where Barbara is coming from with regards to her mother. It makes sense to me.

The Gretel backstory was a little rushed, but it paid off in the end. I really felt for her. I also love her wig changes. The blue one looked cool.

The best part for me was seeing Batgirl and Batman interact and work together. Batgirl has always had more independence and autonomy than the Robins have. It’s ironic because she’s the one that dresses like Batman and is named similarly to him, but she’s able to stand apart from him as her own hero and not a sidekick. It was so nice seeing Bruce respect her and take her lead on the Gretel front. Batman trusts Batgirl. The flashback to Batman in Barbara’s hospital room after the events that left her paralyzed was very powerful.
