Panel of the month

The Panel of the Month for March comes from Batgirl #7, written by Gail Simone and drawn by Adrian Syaf.  Since the launch of the New 52, Barbara Gordon has regained the use of her legs through some “miracle procedure,” but she has had trouble getting back into the swing of things.  Self doubt has been a big issue that she’s been dealing with.  So, after some sparring with Black Canary, she talks about what she’s been feeling, and this happens.

Yes, Black Canary smacked her and told her to shut up.  It’s something that I’ve wanted to do while reading this book, because Barbara has done so much whining for someone that has been given a chance to regain her old life.

  1. I still find it stupid that someone as long running and established as Barbara Gordon is called Batgirl esoecially when there is a Batwoman running around. Part of me was hoping that after the new 52 Barbara would assume the Woman mantle and continue teaching Stephanie and Casandra Cain as a sort of mirror to Batman, Robin and Nightwing.

    1. I really liked what Greg Rucka had down with Batwoman, and what J. H. Williams III is doing with the character now. So, I’m happy they didn’t remove Kate Kane as Batwoman, and “promote” Barbara Gordon to that title.

    1. Yes, The Killing Joke still happened. In comic time, they’re saying three years ago. That’s actually been a part of the story so far. She’s having trouble when someone pulls a gun on her. And this latest issue left off with her finding one of the henchmen that was with Joker the night he shot her. But yes, she was paralyzed, and for a while was Oracle.
