Stephanie Brown is the daughter of the Cluemaster, a member of Batman's rogues gallery, and she began operating as the masked vigilante "the Spoiler" when her father managed to abandon his habit of [[CriminalMindgames leaving clues to his crimes]]. Guest-starring in multiple [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Gotham-based series]], Stephanie began a romantic relationship with Tim Drake (Robin) and formed a friendship with then-Batgirl Cassandra Cain. Eventually she assumed the Robin identity herself when Tim briefly rejected the costume, but her earnest efforts to help ended up instigating a massive gang war in Gotham and she was captured by Black Mask. In the original story she was killed by Black Mask, but a later {{retcon}} revealed that she survived her injuries and her death had been faked to smuggle her out of the country.

'''Supergirl:''' Depends on which one of us you ask. And it isn't just Kryptonite. There's all kinds of little hiccups. Magic. Electricity. Sometimes robots, if they're big enough.

** When Kara and Steph first team up, Supergirl wants to charge in and take down the villains, but Stepth suggests that it is not a good idea. Then Kara asks her, "It's the first Supergirl-Batgirl team up, what can go wrong?". Steph made sure to give her a sarcastic "You were saying?" when the pair was overwhelmed by Toyman's robots.

The series ended in August 2011 with the ComicBook/{{New 52}} ContinuityReboot of the [[Franchise/TheDCU DC Universe]], after which a new ''[[Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2011}} Batgirl]]'' series was released featuring Barbara Gordon as the titular character. A one-shot featuring Stephanie Brown as Batgirl was published in ''Batman, Inc.: Leviathan Strikes'', containing her planned ''Batman, Inc.'' crossover issues that were never published due to the reboot. Years later, Steph got some more closure (particularly regarding her on-off romance with Tim Drake) in a {{ComicBook/Convergence}} mini-series before her return in ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'' where she became Spoiler again.
