Anonymous asked: Why are you mad at New52!Batgirl? I mean, I don't like a lot of things about it, but I'm curious what is your problem with that. Can you explain?
It’s the concept itself, anon - taking Barbara from Oracle to Batgirl, and erasing her legacies in the process.
This is long and a bit personal, so it’s going behind a cut! Please keep in mind that this is my personal view, and I don’t begrudge anyone who does love New 52 Batgirl.
Anonymous asked: Do you post New 52 Barbra
I do not! I don’t read New 52 Batgirl, because I’m, uh, still mad about it. And honestly, every part of it I have seen - IDK, that’s just not Babs to me. I’m not going to read something I dislike to celebrate it on a blog I do for fun, y’know? And I don’t want to post it just to shred it, because that’s not what this blog is for.
Alas, “fuckyeahbatgirlsexceptthatone” is a bit unwieldy.
There are a lot of people that DO post that Barbara, though! likebirdsofprey, for example, is about all the Birds, including New 52.
Anonymous asked: How do you feel about the Batgirl Future's End cover and the possibility of Cass returning in it
I think Barbara herself looks ridiculous, and I’m honestly trying not to get my hopes up about the rest.
I think it’s ridiculous that Cass hasn’t appeared yet, and I’ll be thrilled if and when she finally does. But I’ll also be - really wary. The New 52 has done some fun, interesting things! But for a lot of characters, the writing has either completely missed the point or - I don’t even know. (Bar Tor. Really.)
I hope with all my heart that Cass shows up and everything amazing about her is intact, even if the details of her origin have changed. But, well - I’m worried.
