“I think that the outcry over Barbara being Batgirl came from butthurt Stephanie Brown fans.”

lol wow how about it being one of the most offensive things to make her randomly come out of her wheelchair after years of being in one and known for being a hero as such.
and stepping back from being a woman and being a “girl” in Bruce’s name.
and maybe fans are mad because they completely shafted that character.
and you know
another character
named Cassandra Cain.

didn’t you know Babs wasn’t a hero cause she wasn’t wearing spandex and Cass and Steph were just fake Batgirls.
/insane troll logic

THIS.
All of this.
I’m partly upset about Babs being Batgirl again because I love Cass and Steph and I hate to see them disregarded, true.
But I’m ALSO upset - I’m probably even MAINLY upset - because I LOVE BABS. And this decision was NOT what was best for Barbara’s character. It moved her backward, not forward. It undid DECADES worth of character-growth. This reboot hurt Babs just as much as it hurt Cass and Steph. If you’re still confused on why, let me refer you to this post.
But, by the way? Even if all the outcry WAS from Steph fans? THAT WOULD STILL BE 100% LEGITIMATE. Because Stephanie is an AMAZING character, and she was not only a wonderful Batgirl, but also a HUGE inspiration for the way she came so far and kept on surviving. To have that taken away from her? Yeah, I’d say that’s MORE than enough reason to get upset, all on its own.

If you’re a fan of Stephanie Brown and want to tell DC that you would like to see the character in their comics, today’s a pretty good day to do it.

You can go visit the DC Facebook page and tell them:

or you could Tweet out your support to @dccomics using…

You know, Cass fans have been talking about a campaign for showing support for her by buying Batgirl #1 on Comixology. It would be neat if instead of just complaining to DC there were a similar campaign for Steph, mass-buying her own Batgirl #1. Or alternatively we could get them both simultaneously.

Honestly, I think Cass and Steph should both be Batgirl. It’s a shame that DC is insisting right now that there can only be one character in any given role, usually the most “iconic” one. (IE the one who was around when most of the current creators were kids, as opposed to the ones who are actually “iconic” for people younger than 30 because of cartoons and such.) Not only does that make it harder to fit in more diverse characters, it also ignores one of the DCU’s unique strengths: the ability for different characters to share the same role. This might make things more confusing but it also gives the universe much more richness and depth, which would actually be attractive to new readers.

It’s worth noting that one of DC’s biggest successes, Johns’s Green Lantern, is the complete opposite of that trend. Yes, bringing Hal back fits his general tendency to revert things to the Satellite League era, but he respected all the different Green Lanterns and gave them a meaningful role. When DC got rid of the Corps and left only one Lantern, the sales were reasonable but it was never a huge hit. When the Corps came back and then Johns started introducing all these weird new Corps, Green Lantern lit the sales charts on fire.

In short, given the right creative team, I for one would buy the heck out of “Batgirl Inc.”

The second phase of this line drawing, done for a perspective class assignment. It could be much better, but with the pile of things on my desk, it will remain as is for now. Thought I would post anyway because some elements are much clearer in this version than in the line-drawing.

OMG, this is going to be the best drawing ever.
Connor throwing darts at the picture of DiDio is perfection. <3
