Will Stephanie Brown stay as Batgirl?

Posted by misterz173 (384 posts) - - Show Bio

When Barbara Gordon returns as Batgirl, what will happen to Stephanie Brown? Will she have to give up being Batgirl? I sure hope not. She makes a great Batgirl, even if she's not as good as the original.

Gail Simone did say that if no one uses Steph, she'll bring her into her title, so it shouldn't be too long until we see her doing something.

She probably will still exist, but she sure won't be Batgirl.

Said the same for Cass and Huntress thank goodness.

@The Dark Huntress: Huntress too? Didn't know that, but that's great news. I'm still hoping she appears in BoP...either would be good though, both books have good writers.

I'm fairly certain she mentioned Huntress, she does have a soft spot for the character so even if she didn't mention her, it wouldn't be out of bounds to assume. I'd really like to see Huntress get her own book, though.

Well I do not think there will be two batgirls because they did that with Batman and now they are changing that with Dick becoming nightwing again. I do not think stephanie brown will disappear. A lot of people like her. Personally she is one of my favorite characters. Maybe she will take on another costume identity.

@danhimself Me too! She was finally getting used again.

still pissed about her being replaced.
 
Stephanie's Batgirl run is criminally under read and under rated. It was easily the best story going from either of the big two, let alone DC. F*** this decision. 
 
I hope Gail can live up to what Brian was doing with the title.

She serves a better purpose as Spoiler, really.

I KNOW!!!  atleast we still have her appearance in Red Robin and Gates of Gotham to look forward to

Steph will most likely be Spoiler again. Hell, I'd take her being Robin again, despite Damian being Robin. I got no problem with Cassandra being BlackBat (laughs) in the reboot, as long as she gets some appearances.

Stephanie Brown is going to become the new Cluemaster. Dan Didio confirmed it in a interview here.

Stephanie rocked as Batgirl.  I heard so much about how she wouldn't make a good Batgirl, but I didn't care I wanted to read Batgirl so I gave the book a chance on the first issue. And I never regretted it.  She wasn't just good, she was great.  Some smart fabulous writer will find a place for her.  Don't worry she'll be around, we have not seen the last of her.

Probably back to Spoiler.  Maybe she'll be a peripheral Titan or something.

Is this the comics equivalent of getting rick-rolled?

I'm not sure if you're joking or if you're seriously asking me that. I'm going to go with yes. :D

No, but seriously, Didio said that Stephanie Brown is coming back as the new Cluemaster here
 
Frankly I think it's a both bad decision and good decision. Bad because it's contrary to where they took her character, good because Cluemaster was so tied into her past and I always felt like she would make a great Tim Drake villain down the road.

Google is your friend for 'rick-rolling' or getting 'rick-rolled'. You have invented 'bendis-rolling'!

Stephanie Brown/New Batgirl
she would be great to come back. Hm.. as of her not being good as the original.. i think you should take it as. the writers set her up to be her own batgirl and she was good at who she was.  Barb is good as who she was. so not being being better then the orignal its about defining  your own character of that custom you are wearing .  but yeah i wonder how they will have her give it up....does she get hurt..does her mom find out.though she is a adult... i guess well see how it work work out..
