Was she cooler as Oracle than she is as Batgirl?

I think it's because she comes off sooo young as batgirl now but she was cool in her first batgirl run.

But Oracle is definitely cooler

Personally I wish they would have done the reboot with her still as Oracle and have her mentor Cassandra Cain as Batgirl instead...

i'd have to say  
Barbara because i've never read anything with Cassandra in it outside the Titans East arc and the Battle For The Cowl: The Network

Loved barbara as batgirl in the animated series, but babs acting like this again is taking time to adjust considering how mature she was as oracle

@War Killer: I haven't been reading her series. I take it that it's gotten better?

I find that she was more nuanced as Oracle. She had so much character growth in her tenure, which is actually something that can be said for pretty much the whole Bat family, and she was truly the glue that kind of held everything together. Excellent cases have been made as to why Oracle was a better character and I agree to a point.

However, I feel like this is a good approach to the character. I was really wary about it at first, but as it's progressed, I've been more and more pleased with it. In addition, if anybody was going to write Barbara as Batgirl again, I'd want it to be Gail Simone.

So yeah, Oracle is a more interesting character, but I also love the direction that they're going with Batgirl.

Was I the only one who never really liked her as the "I know everything" hacker who stayed mostly in the backstage?

Seriously, for those who saw her as Batgirl it was depressive to see her in a wheelchair, don't matter how much she could do for heros and Bat-Family, it always made me think "why did they do it to her?!"

Barbara Gordon is and always my favorite because of the 60s Batman TV Show, the Batgirl cowl ,you can still see her pretty face under the mask, the sexy high heeled boots, doing those Batgirl kicks , her own beguiling way of changing into the purple or was it blue leather costume, tantalizing and delicious: )
