Who is the best Batgirl?
Mental: Babara Gordan
Physical: Cassandra Cain
Entertainment: Stephanie Brown
Thing is though I don't think there should be a Batgirl.
Babs should be Oracle
Steph should be Spoiler
Cass should be something else. Not Blackbat. That's just a terrible name.
I have to said Cain for the win. First read about her in "Bruce Wayne: Fugitive" and loved her. She is the only character I can see surpassing Batman. Not only do I think she was the best Batgirl, but she also has the most potential out of most of, if not all, Batman's proteges (spelling?). Barbara was great as a Batgirl but she urk me, but I love her as Oracle and I found Stephine to be annoying with occasional humor. I don't know much about Huntress's run as Batgirl but I assumed the costume didn't change much to her methods and personality. Cassandra was, is, and (unless I start writing for Batgirl) will be the best Batgirl?
Okay, I've been hearing this alot, especially with how people say that Barbara is better as not only as Oracle but as a disabled heroine, which taken away from in Gail Simone's Batgirl is a step down... so does that make Steph or Cassie better, or who is better than the other? Oh that's easy... Bette Kane/Flamebird. D
Seriously, It doesn't matter, they are all great Batgirl's just in different ways! In the case of Babs, she's the most iconic, the one who people know the most, and while I feel that not only healing her takes away the disabled diversity in comics, but also downgrades her as a character in terms of pre-reboot, It's still kinda good to see her with the cowl again so long as she's written properly (Thank You Gail Simone)
While with Cassandra Cain... Of course, she's tough, she's silent, she's one not to come across in a dark ally if your being a jerk.
And Stephenie is cute, she's funny, she's energetic, she's fun!
So by their own right they are all Batgirl to me.
