* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Regarding Barbara, and whether she's an intelligent and strong young woman regaining her confidence to overcome trauma or whether she's massively overconfident and not nearly as strong or clever as she thinks she is, instead blundering into situations she's not nearly equipped or prepared to handle.
* AwesomeArt: [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/prev_img.php?pid=23837&disp=ilib&oty=1&oid=53962 Batgirl's redesigned costume]] by Babs Tarr has been generally well received by critics and fans alike. It has garnered [[http://comicsalliance.com/best-batgirl-art-ever-this-week-babs-tarr-cameron-stewart-brenden-fletcher-fan-art/ tons of fan art]] in just a day after it was revealed.
* BrokenBase: Ohh boy...
** Some thought having Barbara becoming Batgirl was great, others... didn't.
** There were people pissed at the reason Barbara no longer handicapped being [[AWizardDidIt a "miracle"]], though later in the series it is addressed fully and referred to as a neural implant, which is based on [[http://www.technologyreview.com/biomedicine/23790/ real technology]] that's currently being tested.
*** Plus, the first villain Batgirl faces is a deranged man named "Mirror" whose M.O. is to kill people who were saved from death by chance, thus undoing the "miracle". He might have been a TakeThat at the fans who thought Barbara should have stayed handicapped, though WordOfGod is that much of what's been perceived as meta-commentary actually [[http://gailsimone.tumblr.com/post/17297460858/wheres-the-beef-i-liked-batgirl-6-there-i-said-it isn't]].
** Also, many people (including ''DC editors'', before the reboot, anyway) thought she became a much more interesting character as Oracle than as Batgirl.
** There's further breakage over the portrayal of Barbara's meetings with Batman after she was shot. Before Flashpoint, and after she had first woken up in ''The Killing Joke'', Barbara expressed justifiable outrage over the fact that she was merely a stepping stone to get to her dad and to Bruce, and then asked if she was the joke Bruce had been laughing about with the Joker before he arrested him. Following Flashpoint, Barbara was afraid to the point of tears that Bruce was going to lay into her for letting him down.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Oh, boy, where do we ''start''.... sufficient to say that Babs didn't had it easy from issue one, all Franchise/{{Batman}}-related titles have gotten a very hard dose of {{Wangst}} from ''at least'' since ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily, which made things exponentially worse for her, and [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment let's leave it at that]].
* InternetBackdraft: Gail Simone got fired from the title via email. Fans were livid causing DC to reverse its decision and reinstate her as the writer
* UnfortunateImplications: Her newfound walking ability is summed up in this Gutter's [[http://www.the-gutters.com/comic/147-ron-chan comic]]
* WhatAnIdiot: Barbara Gordon isn't nearly as smart as she was as Oracle due to being several years younger. In issue 10, a group of security guards who are obviously up to no good threaten to call the police if she doesn't leave the property immediately while she is busy helping out a man who got caught in bear trap. Most of the bats would play along and pretend to leave while dropping a tracker on one of the guards or hiding out in the shadows. Barbara does none of those things while acknowledging that the guards were acting suspiciously.
