Minor Spoiler Conversation.
Batgirl, like Aquaman, Supergirl and some other titles, has been cancelled, for now. But, there’s no reason to think Batgirl is going to be unpublished for long. What do you think the future holds for Babs and the rest of the Batgirl universe? What would you like to see happen?
I think we will get a new Batgirl title in the spring or summer, but I do think this will be different kind of series. Both Batgirl #50 and the most recent issue of Batman seem to be hinting that Barbara is going to dedicating more of her time to being Oracle than Batgirl. In Batman, she talks about directling Cass and Stephanie in the field. In a short story at the end of Batgirl 50, she sends Huntress, Black Canary, Orphan and Spoiler out to respond to an emergency while she directs them. I think we will see a title either as BoP or Batgirl, in which Babs doesn’t completely hang up the cape but spends most of her energy as Oracle directing an all-female team.
I hope this happens. In her personal life, I hope they drop her working for a member of congress because it eats up time with the writer thinking they’re saying something about whatever and in a greater sin it’s deadly boring. Jason Bard can also take a long walk off a short pier as far as I’m concerned, because he commits the same boring sin. Babs doesn’t always need a dude in her life (Simone’s neck snake tattoo boy being the worst) to make her life interesting.
So, what you got?
