This is one of my very favorite books!
Hold me i might faint from amazement
ommmmmmmmmmmmg Annie Wu is my art goddess.
whoa whoa whoa hold up guys. a strong, independant, witty, not over sexualized, WoC superhero????
can we say HELL FUCKIN YEH!!!!
I love everything about Nissa. I wish to be her.
I’ve said before that Wizkid’s HeroClix is my favorite DCU right now and here’s another reason. We may never see a team-up of all three Batgirl’s in comics beyond the panel below in Batgirl vol. 2 #24 and numerous pieces of commissioned and fan art.
But now you can have it playing HeroClix which unveiled today it’s newest piece:
And with their previous unveiling of BabsGirl and BlackBat, you can have all three (and if you are a real stickler you can order a Cass as Batgirl)!
And can I just say the fact that Stephanie’s character has Electro-Magna-Gooperangs makes me so happy? Hey, I just did!

Call me petty if you must, but for all the problems with BG:Y1, I still get a charge out of Babs kicking Dick’s ass.
It’s for similar reasons that The Batman is the best Batman: Barbara Gordon makes Bruce take her on as his first sidekick. Yes, it’s the result of the licence for Robin being tied up with the Teen Titans series, but in those few short years Babs was shown more respect on both in-universe and meta levels than in the entirity of the DCAU canon. You might even argue she got better treatment there than from many parts of the DCU.
