I really want to know whether Harper will end up in the Bat Family and who she will end up as? I have my thoughts but there are really quite a few options, some more likely than others tell me what you think.
Harper Row, who is she?
Why? Because Harper knows a lot about computing, electronics and she has already proved that she is a great hacker. But there are lots reasons she couldn't be 'traditional' Oracle. Firstly, she isn't disabled and that is the only reason Barbara became Oracle was because she wasn't able to be Batgirl any more. Yet maybe she doesn't have to be, but that could upset fans of Barbara's run on Oracle. Harper also seems a bit young to become Oracle, she is a little bit juvenile and Barbara was far from it. But they could easily disable Harper and thanks to this experience she become more mature. Lots of people seem to think she might become Oracle, but there are some issues with this. I still think she make a kick-ass Oracle though.
Harper and Stephanie's personality are quite similar and I think Harper would rock the Spoiler outfit. It doesn't take anything special to be Spoiler and it was really Stephanie's quirkiness and fun-loving personality that made her a fan-favourite. Harper could easily take up the role due to her being a teenager with similar traits and well I'd love to see Spoiler again in pages of Batman titles.
This one is unlikely, yet Harper could be a pretty cool Robin and for those of you who think Robin must be a guy Stephanie Brown (formerly Spoiler and later Batgirl) and Carrie Kelly (Dark Knight Returns) were both Robins. I know Damian is currently Robin, he is my favourite Robin of all time, will probably stay around for ages so that's why I doubt she'll become Robin. Yet she could be a brilliant Robin for a short length of time, long-term probably wouldn't work.
Harper could take on Huntress's fiery personality and well I just think Huntress and Harper are really alike. If she got longer hair and became more mature but still keep her attitude, we would get an epic Huntress. This one is again less likely due to Helena Wayne from Earth 2 currently using the Huntress identity, but if she ever wants to return to Earth 2, then Harper could make an awesome replacement.
Which idea do you like the best and would you like to see any of the characters return to the DC Universe? Comment!
