Barbara Gordon was the best known and first 'official' bearer of the Batgirl title when the character was introduced in 1966. However, she retired from the position and was later crippled by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in the 1988 Creator/AlanMoore story ''Comicbook/TheKillingJoke''. The title was passed on to [[LegacyCharacter several other women]], some with Barbara's approval and [[IdentityImpersonator some without]], while she reinvented herself as the tech-savvy Oracle. Oracle served as [[MissionControl an information broker and hacker]] for the various hereos of the DCU, she was reintroduced in the ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad'' and eventually starred in ''Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey'', an ongoing series created by Creator/ChuckDixon and eventually written by Gail Simone that continued in two volumes until the ComicBook/{{New 52}} relaunch of the DC line in September, 2011. After the relaunch Barbara Gordon regained the use of her legs and reclaimed the Batgirl title.

** After getting thrashed by Batwoman (in a case of LetsYouAndHimFight), Batwoman offers Batgirl a handkerchief to clean her bloody nose. Babs is incredulous that Batwoman would carry such a thing in her utility belt. Over twenty issues later, however, Batgirl has started carrying one as well, as she offers it to [[spoiler:Huntress]] after beating her up in an almost identical situation.



* LetsYouAndHimFight: Batwoman busts into Detective McKenna's apartment to apprehend her while Batgirl's there, and ends up [[CurbStompBattle curbstomping]] Babs. While Batgirl wasn't fighting at her full capacity since she wasn't sure what side Batwoman was on, her narration also makes clear that she probably wouldn't have won anyway.

* Flanderization: The first arc of the Fletcher/Stewart run made considerable use of Barbara's photographic memory and computer abilities to solve crimes. Later arcs, however, seemed to have tossed aside Barbara's detective skills in order to push her into the center of love triangles and petty teenage drama.
