** This has lessened in recent years, with her second Birds of Prey run and her New52 Batgirl run being received a lot more coolly than her earlier work; that the latter would have been particularly controversial regardless of writers has not helped matters.
** Due to her original call to fame being her calling out the tendency of writers to harm female characters for quick drama for male character, she's also had to deal with some of the more vicious defenders of comics, who refuse to accept there's anything wrong with the medium, to crutinize her later work; its not uncommon to see people accuse her of being a hypocrite because in one story a female character is hurt somehow, regardless of the situation behind it[[note]]particularly, moments that get called out tend to be 'female character doesn't win a fight', when the issue Gail was criticizing was how badly they get brutalized for other people's drama, not just any instance of violence against them[[/note]]

* MyRealDaddy: Gail is considered one of the best hero and villain rehabilitators, and the ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey and Catman, amongst others, have become inextricably linked to her. She's particularly known for taking female characters initially created solely for [[MsFanservice fanservice]] and making them three-dimensional and worthy of respect. She is also responsible, alongside Creator/GregRucka, with setting the current tone of Franchise/WonderWoman comics.
** And SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} has declared her his mommy.
