Retailer FAQ reveals transition of Barbara Gordon to Batgirl


Bleeding Cool got a hold of the FAQ that DC prepared and sent to retailers who couldn’t get to their road show. And let’s just get to the most interesting tidbit:

* Does The New 52 undo events or continuity that I’ve been reading?

Some yes, some no.  But many of the great stories remain.  For example – Batgirl.  The Killing Joke still happened and she was Oracle.  Now she will go through physical rehabilitation and become a more seasoned and nuanced character because she had these incredible and diverse experiences.

So now we know.

Second worse possible outcome. Given the temporal/experience reset, she can’t have been DCnU’s Oracle for very long or else she was going to have been a young teen when she was starting out as Batgirl.
