Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Some Days, You Just Can’t Get Rid Of A Bombshell Edition

My most recent stack of comics acquisitions included Batgirl #12, a story which sees Batgirl first fighting, then teaming-up with Batwoman, a story which got me seriously thinking about what it says that DC is willing to have both characters active at the same time.  Give that the current Batwoman costume was created to emulate the 60’s Batgirl look (from the TV series and “New Look” comics), it seems that having two females Bats, each with red hair and a similar fashion style, might water down the bat-franchise a bit.  Then again, by that logic, couldn’t having ANY other bat-types active at the same time as Batman could be see to have that same effect?

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) knows comics creators to be a superstitious and cowardly lot, asking:  Will multiple secondary characters (i.e., a dozen different Hulks of differing shades) lessen the impact of the primary characters upon which they’re based?
