    Coincidentally this was after War Games, but before Infinite Crisis, where they seemed to be trying to push the two together (and leaves a sour taste in my mouth due to the possibility it was partly...

    Careful. Implying that Oracle wasn't empowering has unfortunate implications.
  3. Priest also called Slade out for the Terra thing...

    Priest also called Slade out for the Terra thing so I guess it's all complicated. (Granted in Rebirth it's implied he simply kissed her, which is still Creepy as hell, but less so than the...
  4. You're right of course. Fans like what they like....

    You're right of course. Fans like what they like. And it's not helped by DC being only interested in advertising specific characters in specific roles, which causes a lot of polarisation when people...

    Hmmm. Or maybe, the fact that Cass had 72 issues with various writers having their own runs, while Steph had her own Batgirl run of 24 issues, plus the Dixon and Lee years of the Robin title making...
  6. Yeah, Cass and Steph have been relegated to...

    Yeah, Cass and Steph have been relegated to supporting characters for quite a while. I'm legitimately interested in seeing their story in War Zone.
  7. Here's a solution. We know the technology that...

    Here's a solution. We know the technology that Babs uses to walk is flawed, as despite assurances, it has repeatedly been shown to be possible to hack, and malfunction. This makes sense, as the tech...
  8. ... Let's not be passive aggressive. DC has had a...

    ... Let's not be passive aggressive. DC has had a history of trying to erase Oracle (mostly in the New 52) or mandating her being used as a villain. I very much believe it's where Barbara is at her...
  9. We're looking at this from different...

    We're looking at this from different perspectives.

    Out of Universe, Oracle happens to be a symbol of diversity for disabled fans, while Batgirl is the role Barbara keeps on getting identified as,...

    Her most memorable run was Burnside, which has a polarizing response. The next most memorable was the Simone run and while I don't dislike it, even it has criticisms for how it handled Babs return...
  11. Eh. I consider Oracle to be just as important to...

    Eh. I consider Oracle to be just as important to the character, and a step up in terms of the positive effects she can bring. We have plenty of people out in the field who can fight crime. The Bat...

    Hmm. On the other hand, whenever they get those solo series, DC winds up either screwing them over or cancelling them for controversial reasons.

    For Cass (First Cancelled because they thought...
  13. The thing is Bruce is absolutely against it at...

    The thing is Bruce is absolutely against it at the start. It's everyone else insisting on Tim taking over when it becomes clear just how far his mental state is declining due to Jason's death, and...
  14. They could even have added pathos to Bruce by...

    They could even have added pathos to Bruce by having Jason die before the story starts. Illustrating the dangers of being Robin, while having Tim having to work to prove himself.
  15. Too bad they mostly did it in the worst possible...

    Too bad they mostly did it in the worst possible ways and expected that to work.
  16. On the Stephanie Robin thing, they stopped...

    On the Stephanie Robin thing, they stopped interacting at all by that point, up until she died.

    Regardless, yeah, he felt like he wasn't just the mantle.
  17. To begin with, he was different from the other...

    To begin with, he was different from the other Robins in that he had his own life, his own friends, social circle and family. He felt like his life wasn't simply Robin and Tim Drake was just as big a...

    Because we don't really see her civilian life. It doesn't exactly count.
  19. Don't you mean disagree (because of the wording)?...

    Don't you mean disagree (because of the wording)? And yeah, I should of course note that Didio apparently disliked Dixon, and while that shouldn't necessarily mean much, given how petty editorial can...
  20. I've noticed that too. There hasn't been much...

    I've noticed that too. There hasn't been much that Dixon didn't add to the mythos that hasn't somehow been screwed over by DC over the past 16 years.
  21. Not just Tim and Cassandra, Stephanie has also...

    Not just Tim and Cassandra, Stephanie has also been put upon. And the reason why? Because in the end, DC in the early 10s passive aggressively tried to ignore the 90s whenever possible. Wally was...

    To be fair, he started out good with Tim, but it soon went downhill.
  23. What is it with the Batgirls and DC suddenly...

    What is it with the Batgirls and DC suddenly acknowledging the roles they've been trying very hard to ignore for years?
  24. One issue I had with the 2016 series... Is that...

    One issue I had with the 2016 series... Is that during one arc a villain died, only to inexplicably turn up alive in the very next arc. I'm talking about Shark of the Terrible Trio btw.
  25. To be honest, I think part of the problem is......

    To be honest, I think part of the problem is... Both Cass' Batgirl and the Robin series both spun out of two of the greatest Bat family Crossovers, No Man's Land and Knightfall respectfully. Combined...
