    Only due to the ridiculous, inconstitent deaging mish-mash of New 52, which despite stating that everyone lost a fixed amount, deaged various characters by as little as a year (Damian) up to as much as ten years (Dick). Barbara was either 16 or 20ish when she became Batgirl, placing her in either her early 30s or mid 30s by the end of New Earth continuity.

    I honestly think they should have kept her Oracle or at least have her be under a new name. I mean what was her best Batgirl costume?

    Nice new statue shown at Toy Fair, based on Middleton’s #32 variant cover.

    That's really nice! I wonder how much it is, though. Probably something really hefty, like $100.

    Oh Babs. If you find yourself always questioning someone it probably isn’t gonna work out. (Talking about #44).

    "It's no use. At the core, we're all unlovable."

    "Shut up"

    Another great issue. I'm a sucker for a good exploration of the power of narratives and Babs is definitely a character who's been exploited by narratives. Seeing her mull all this over and be cognizant of it is really fun.

    ain't that the truth... DC is trying soooo hard to force this pairing that almost everyone, cept few ppl, want :/ hell, most of bab's thoughts this issue just read as Cecil desperately trying to get the readers to buy into Bard not being a creep (who totally didn't stalk Babs in so many issues, show up to her house uninvited and so on) and hadn't done real bad shit, right to Babs and Jim personally.

    it really does amaze me how DC thinks we're going to buy Babs going from hating/distrusting Bard to somehow wanting to date him... all in one issue (issue #42) -_-

    like fine, you want to do the whole "forget and forgive" thing, but wouldn't that involve getting to know the dude and at least being friends with him first, before all this romance shit comes up? I mean, Babs is still trying to figure out who Bard is as a person in this issue, yet we're to believe she wants to date someone she knows nothing about and knows has done bad shit? she's had to literally force herself to trust and convince herself, and even then, she's still questioning things right till the end of the issue.

    It shows that DC jumped the shark from hate/distrust right into dating/love and skipped any proper development... sigh, it's clear this is just being done for shock value :/ we can see from the solicits for Batgirl and Nightwing showing how Babs and Dick's stories will be coming together really soon, as Dick finally gets his memories back, Babs involvement in it and all that... so this whole Bard thing has no future at all even before it comes close to beginning, let alone this ever being a healthy relationship given Bard's past.
    __________________________________________________ ____

    at least the issue ends with her asking wtf is going on with Bard and his leg, as well as what he did to infect and hurt that woman.

    though as a side note, I really don't like how Cecil is trying to frame things for Babs's past love life as: "She might not have experience with healthy relationships"... like wat? are you really being serious with that? So was her relationship with Dick not healthy? :/
