    Default Batgirl #29 discussion thread

    I haven't bought / read this yet, but . . .

    BATGIRL #29
    In the finale of “Art of the Crime,” Batgirl may have uncovered Grotesque’s real plot, but that only means she knows the real danger that faces Jim Gordon and the GCPD! Can Barbara take down Grotesque before he pulls off a massive heist and ruins the GCPD’s rep in the process? Maybe, but it won’t be a paint-by-numbers job!

    While Babs was due for a new look, how Jim doesn't call her out on her putting on that outfit whenever he sees her is a mystery to me. It does absolutely nothing to hide her identity.

    Jim knows, he just pretends not to.

    To be fair, many other superheroes costumes shouldn't hide the identity of the superhero at all either.

    Robin and Nightwing only wear an eyes mask, while the previous cowl of Batgirl costume shouldn't hide her identity either. Not to mention Superman.

    True, but those people aren't trying to hide their identities from their parents while right in front of them.

    He might not know that he knows, but there’s some part of him that definitely knows.

    It is an impressive show of suspended belief/disbelief. It's worse on TV shows or other. "I know that is you, Supergirl, with your glasses and semi-frumpy attire".

    Just gotta go with it, for the most part.

    Yeah, it's the same with Nightwing, Robin, and the Green Lanterns. If we want to be realistic they're all going to look like Batman, in full helmet, body armor, and voice modulator.
    Heheh... what would Batgirl's Christian Bale voice sound like?
