Was she cooler as Oracle than she is as Batgirl?
Is it just me, or...
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?!"
