  1. I miss the days of Barbara Gordon being Batgirl. However, I do like the progression of the character as Oracle. Not every character can be miraculously cured of a gunshot to the spine and be fairly realistic and it’s become part of the Batman/Joker mythos.

  2. Yep, Rio knows how to do the gals. As for poor Babs Gordon, Zatanna brought Harley Quinn back to life using nothing but magic and one of Harley’s hairs, yet she can’t magic Barbara Gordon back into the cowl? D.C want a tragic figure and Babs is it, despite existing in a fictional universe where the impossible happens daily.

      Also, in a world where Cyborg exists, you mean to tell me you can’t outfit her with cybernetic legs? Or hell, Bruce broke his back and got over it with the help of a healer. Why isn’t Bruce helping her when she has a similar injury?

      Great picture. Al Rio and Terry are awesome!

  3. Would love to see Disco-era Cosmic Boy, Colossal Boy and Tyroc recreating this scene — all the leg hair and bare arms on display would be a real Christmas treat for the lady fans (and 10% of guy fans too)!
