Oracle getting killed off?

Birds of Prey #7


Anyone know anything about this?  I'm pretty sure this is new considering I see Batman's new stripey costume...argh...but I could be wrong...so is she getting killed off or something?  If they do kill her off...hopefully they will bring her back to life being able to walk again... sad :*(

Good idea or she may be faking her own death.

That is a good idea!!!  Maybe she will be able to walk again with the whole Brightest Day story, and when she does she'll lose the Oracle name and become the new Nightwing lol...though I dont want her to leave Birds of Prey... hmm.

@Armani:
I'd LOVE for her to be back in action 
and I really, REALLY hope Barbara doesn't die

Well it doesn't say Barbara Gordon

@Armani: Nah, I don't think that she could be Nightwing. If they ever give her a new ID, it should be something original.

this is what they say about this issue 
 
*One of Oracle’s fiercest enemies finds her alone and far from her allies and safe houses – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg as Batman returns! Rising star artist Ardian Syaf (BRIGHEST DAY) makes his BIRDS OF PREY debut in a story you must not miss, which we’re calling ”The Death of Oracle”  *

Well, one of Oracle's fiercest opponents in the last years was the Calculator. Maybe he?

Do you know how many times character's graves have been on the cover and nothing happened? Besides Simone would NEVER kill her off

#17 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm actually hoping this is just the death of ORACLE, meaning Babs somehow gets use of her legs back

Methos and I have been talking about this on Facebook, we agreed that we think its the death of Oracle. I think Proxy will take over and Oracle will get a new mantle... which would be AWESOME!

I'm afraid we might be disappointed in the story, might be just a gimmick.  DC hasn't been promoting this much like they would other characters.  If you don't read BoP you wouldn't really know.  
 
I like Babs as Oracle, I'd hate to see her "lose" the persona.

I really like the idea of Barbara losing the Oracle ID and getting a new one as a new costumed hero on the front line!  It's really long over due!

I love Oracle, Stephanie and Cassandra both are (were?) doing a fine job as Batgirl and I don't think that a character that has finally been established as a unique character with a unique position should become just another vigilante.
 
Especially considering how the batman family has been expanding (and will expand with the batman inc story)

If this is a physical death then meh...Blackest Night showed how pointless death in the DCU is because everyone come back eventually for some reason or another. But if it's metaphorical where she burying the Oracle identity then big up to Babs

I kinda want her to stay in the wheel chair. I like that she is so tough even though she has this apparent weakness.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

I cannot wait to see how the story unfolds behind this!

I certainly hope Babs doesn't die or get her legs back. 
I've liked her alot better in the wheelchair than I ever did when she didn't have it.

An excerpt from her page -  
He shows her a mysterious set of plans that have her in a Bat-Suit, next to a vehicle, but fails to go further into detail about what it all means. Later, Bruce visits Barbara and apparently is trying to talk her out of a decision she's made. He tries to remind her how much he needs Oracle for his future plans, but Barbara tells him it's inappropriate to call her Oracle anymore, as too many people know of her existence, continuing to say "Tonight... Oracle dies, once and for all."      
 
 
Obviously Barbara isnt going to die and just the existance of Oracle is (which i could see becoming a program based on her) to watch, protect, and guide the heroes (like Jarvis) Does anyone have a scan of these plans with her in a new suit and vehicle? It sounds like she is going to walk again or get something so she cant fight crime while still paraplegic. It seemed pretty obvious that she would be changing positions since they have a new wheel chair super tech person to carry on her legacy.
