What is new the New52 when it comes to what we should know about BATGIRL'S origins?


    When DC Comics hit the reset button back in 2011, one of the most controversial changes involved Barbara Gordon. After the events of “Killing Joke” left Gordon paraplegic, she shed her Batgirl persona for that of the hacker Oracle. As in information broker and technological wizard, Oracle became a lynchpin in helping put supervillains away.

    Oracle also became a symbol of empowerment for people living with disabilities. Many people were upset when Barbara returned to the role of Batgirl in the New 52. Oracle was a highly visible character in the fight against ableism and her loss stung the community she represented.

    BATGIRL’s writers have done their best to slide parts of Barbara’s old life into the new comic; from struggling with PTSD from being shot to joking about her insane upper body strength after five years in a wheelchair.

    After the jump, discover the lengths Barbara was willing to go to in order to get up and running. SECRET ORIGINS #10 is on sale February 25!
