2) By 1966 the ''Series/{{Batman}}'' live-action television show was on the air, and the producer asked Creator/DCComics to create a new female hero character for the comics that would then also appear on the show to boost viewership by women. The new character debuted in ''Detective Comics'' #359 (January, 1967). The new Batgirl was Barbara Gordon, the adult daughter of Batman's ally Commissioner James Gordon. She had a doctorate in library science and was the head librarian of Gotham Library, in addition to being a skilled acrobat with judo training. Barbara was blessed with an eidetic memory and a gift for invention (or adapting available technology) as she designed and built all of her gadgets independently of Batman. Why would a woman with all that going for her name herself "-girl"? It was still TheSixties.

3) Helena Bertinelli, better known as the ComicBook/{{Huntress}}, briefly took up the Batgirl mantle during the ''Comicbook/BatmanNoMansLand'' event (1999). She first appeared in this role in ''Shadow of the Bat'' #83 (March, 1999). Batman eventually forced her to stop using the costume as he felt Helena's attitude and behavior were inconsistent with his standards. She went back to being the Huntress, and later joined the Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey.

Early reports stated that Stephanie would be Spoiler post-reboot, but she has yet to appear in actual continuity. This originated from an attempt to fit Grant Morrison's "Batman: Leviathan Strikes!" into the New 52 continuity, but this got to be too complicated. They finally said "screw it," set the story in pre-Flashpoint continuity, and kept Stephanie as Batgirl for the duration.

Stephanie as Spoiler reappears in ''ComicBook/BatmanEternal'', a year-long 2014-2014 weekly event, with her first appearance in ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' continuity being in "Batman #28".
