I loved her as Oracle but I want her as Batgirl, she's the best Batgirl and I'd like to read more comics about her as Batgirl but Simone needs to go, I was disappointed when they brought her back, I like Simone's work but her Batgirl run is pretty boring.

Oracle is what made Barbara unique, else shes just another bat-person.

Agreed. I think it was a bit irresponsible of Babs to abandon her Oracle persona. Who knows maybe Savant from the wildcats can be oracle now :-p

There's nothing wrong with her as Batgirl. She's still tech savy and brilliant now she can do both on the field and oracle duties. I'd like her to be Batwoman tbh. Even before the new 52 there were teasers and hints shed walk again.

I miss her as Oracle, it's not very often that there is representation of superheroes that have disabilities and there are few that exist now that they 'fixed' her and practically demoted her. As Oracle she was the most powerful women in dc. She could literally just expose every single super hero and super villains 'secret' identities if she wanted to and I just yeah. I miss it.

As Oracle she totally cold clocked Prometheus. She was awesome.

Oracle.
She had a unique place in the DCU.
Plus Cassandra Kain was a better Batgirl :-P

I would like to see her as batgirl in Batman Arkham origins, but her life is better as oracle as sad as it is :(

I love the character of Barbara Gordon period. It makes me sad to see that some people feel like they have to choose between the two. Babs is amazing as Batgirl and she is amazing as Oracle. The only difference (to me) is that when she was Oracle, she had a farther reach when it came to who she could help and she lead her own (amazing) team of heroes. So in a way I can see why people feel she was demoted when she returned to being Batgirl. But she is still the same person. She is just as brilliant as she ever was and she still kicks ass. I would love to see her become Oracle again someday, but I enjoy seeing her doing the things she loves to do again as well. Hell, maybe she can pull double duty as Batgirl and Oracle!

Batgirl.

Oracle had more reach, and was overall a major player who reached beyond Gotham and was arguably the director of the Superhero community in most eyes. But something about her always felt a bit off in that role, and she was always written as missing something. As Batgirl, she may be overwhelmed sometimes, but moments when she's pissed off, or flying with Nightwing, Or talking about Gotham present her as a more fufilled character. And lets be honest, Barbara has said in both pre and post New52 that she loved being Batgirl and idk if she ever said the same about being Oracle. And as someone who doesn't subscribe to the idea that characters need to be miserable to be heroes, i like that babs is happy if limited by her role.

I much preferred her as Oracle. Making her Batgirl again definitely feels like a demotion in my eyes. Oracle was powerful, a leader *and* she could still defend herself physically when she needed to. Plus she was happy... I think it's Birds of Prey 8 where she says she likes and is fulfilled by her life as it is. Plus it was nice to see someone mobility impaired and still a major player.

That said I am enjoying the new Batgirl run, I'd just have preferred she stay as Oracle.
