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.

* CharacterDevelopment: The theme of the series seems to be growing up in both the literal and figurative sense, with Stephanie Brown going to college and also approaching superhero work with a more mature and developed attitude. Wendy continues her character development that began after her brutal mauling in the Comicbook/{{Teen Titans}} series, where [[WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}} she and her brother Marvin]] were minor supporting characters that were [[TheScrappy heavily disliked by fans]] until [[AlasPoorScrappy their brutal exit from the series]]. She is coming to grips with being a paraplegic and reinventing herself as the superhero-in-training [[PlayFulHacker Proxy]] with the counseling and guidance of both Dr. Leslie Thompkins and Barbara Gordon.

* LegacyCharacter: She picks up the immediate mantle from Cassandra Cain, becoming the fourth "real" Batgirl in current continuity, but she also struggles with the even larger burden of living up to Barbara's original legacy. This is exacerbated by the fact that Barbara [[TheObiWan serves as her mentor.]]
