    Heres to 2020 and hopefully more Steph. Young Justice looks like a promising start.

    Over at the Doomsday Clock new Earth threads, I suggested that if Post Crisis story continues, Steph will remain Batgirl and all the Batgirl story in New 52 excepting the ones involving the Gordon family goes to her.

    The first New 52 Batgirl story is Dark Reflection where Babs faced a villain that forces his victims to face their dark past or dark side. What would be Steph's dark side/past that she will be forced to face?

    If they were to merge all the continuity, then I wouldn't expect Barbara's story to be severely affected - she'd just have been out of action for longer than three years and be in her late twenties (as she is now) instead of 21. But I do agree that it means Steph's time as Batgirl would've lasted longer. She would simply eventually go back to being Spoiler on her own, wanting her own identity. As such, there'd be a hole in Steph's continuity that needs filling in.

    Bear the end of Jon Lewis' run, he was telling a story about how Stephanie had been abused as a child by her father's friends. I think that would qualify.

    Hooray! A new thread! It warms my heart to see the Steph community like this.

    Probably, yes. It was handled tastefully, and my biggest regret about it was that the story got cut short before Lewis could finish it. She was fast approaching the crisis point of that story arc and suddenly it was as if none of it had ever happened.

    Jon Lewis actually got both Tim and Stephanie right. As I've said elsewhere, his biggest failing in writing Robin was his reliance on weirdness in the costumed adventurers part of the stories.
