30 Day DC Comics Challenge
Day Two: Tell us who is your Favorite Female Hero?: Batgirl (Barbara Gordon)
Buying comics can be an expensive hobby. A lot of fans simply can’t afford everything they’re interested in, due to rising prices and the over-saturation of the market with superhero titles.
That’s why we’re here. Every week, the Multiversity staff is asked “What would you buy this week if…
Really mixed feelings about this (see above) but I can’t say I’m not interested, particularly given how low Batwoman has sunk of late.
Since the day that Barbara Gordon landed in comics and later TV as Batgirl the character has put a boatload of money into her owners bank accounts through licensing. Do a quick search on Amazon and type in Batgirl and a variety of apparel and toys will show up.
The redheaded daughter of Jim Gordon is bank as far as DC Comics and Warner Bros. is concerned.
But not always. In 1988, the character was seen as so unimportant she was eased out of the Batman book. Not through her own title or joining another group - but by having a bullet split her spine on page and left to be sexually abused by the Joker.
CLICK THROUGH— SO IMPORTANT.
