Unpopular opinion time:

It super cracks me up that “rookies” Spoiler and Bluebird in the New52 have amazing, highend super suits. Particularly Steph who is completely on her own.

And yet we all celebrate Barbara’s new suit. Veteran Barbara “going back to basics” in a city where everyone is upgraded to body armor and kevlar.

Again, I like the suit. It’s cute. But wtf is it doing in Barbara.

Whatever. I’m going back to my hidey hole on the subject of Barbara. I might even block her tag. I’m not in the mood to sift through New52 stuff to get to the occasional Oracle anymore. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

Batgirls! I did Babs and most of Steph’s back when I did these, and only just now got around to finishing Steph and doing Cass.

Mm. Well, aesthetically I very much enjoy the design, and the creative team attached is one that looks promising. We need a non grim & gritty Batbook.

But, really, nothing could get me excited for Barbara as Batgirl anymore. And that’s sad in and of itself, because I certainly do have a lot of affection for Barbara and even pre-Oracle Barbara!Batgirl.

But that’s just the thing. I liked her as Batgirl as an evolution of her character. And, to be honest, the last couple of years of Barbara’s time as Oracle experienced a shift in her characterization I wasn’t happy with either. It seems, more and more, Barbara is losing her focus on what inspired her to become Batgirl to begin with, which was one of the more unique reasons for any of the Bat Family to join the cause: she believed in the law and her time as Batgirl was always at a period where she wanted to do more but couldn’t join law enforcement yet — either because she was a congresswoman who was using Batgirl as a way to help law enforcement on the side, or as a student still taking classes and achieving her law & criminology degrees but wanting to help now.

I have no idea why Barbara is Batgirl now instead of a police officer.

But other than that… I find the entire way that unveiling was underhanded and cheap. They keep abusing Cass fans’ trust and I just don’t have any trust to give anymore because you can’t convince me that the leaks insinuating an announcement about Cass weren’t on purpose. They’re literally playing keep away now and I think that’s very disappointing.

Not to mention that they’re modeling a lot of this hype after the successful relaunch of Ms. Marvel — holding interviews with news organizations, pulling lots of reassurance that this is a book for women and teens.

Except let’s compare this for a moment:

Ms. Marvel had all this support and extra coverage to levy more support to a teen-oriented book featuring a woman of color and an artistic new direction for the Marvel line.

Batgirl isn’t even a title relaunch, and it not only features a white girl, but is also the product of erasure of a woman of color in comics and two representations of women with disabilities being superheroes.

And DC has no room to brag about new costumes — no matter how much I like the looks — when it is given to a character already featured in a great costume for women, and they’re completely unwilling to fix the other, much worse costumes they have women in right now.
