    Think it's simply because she's the most recent writer to write her ongoing.

    Yeah, I think it's pretty much because she was the last main Batgirl writer.

    I don't mind her bringing back Jason if it's to properly put that romance to bed.

    Yeah, I'd be fine with that.

    I really wouldn't have a problem with a Babs & Jason pairing if it was written well.

    Then again, when I first regularly started buying/reading the Bat-books, Barbara was a Congresswoman who had been dating Jason Bard. Dick was way younger than Barbara, so they weren't dating each other.

    That's the 1970s, right? Dick was still a teenager and Babs was in her 20s. They didn't start dating until much later, when Dick was Nightwing - and now an adult - and Babs was Oracle. New 52 de-aged Babs to be the same age as Dick.

    I think they were retconned to be the same age in 90's.

    The article I linked does make the same point - it's happened at least twice before in main continuity, as well as in several AUs.

    I thought it was retconned to be closer in age later in the 1990's. I took a long break from DC Comics starting in early 1995 and don't remember their ages having been significantly changed any back then.

    I'm not a fan of this, not at all.

    Also not happy they said she WAS Batgirl. I need her to still be Batgirl!

    I don't think it's been said she's no longer Batgirl PERIOD.

    This is from the Stephanie Brown thread:

    Team Batgirl has officially arrived.
    Slight qualification:
    They had previously had Barbara having some glitches with her implant during her solo series. This just seemed to clarify that she is not going into action as Batgirl as frequently any longer, but will do so when she's needed in that role. And I'm assuming that sometime in the future, a writer can decide to change things back to her spending more time as Batgirl / less time as Oracle (though I have no idea when that might possibly happen).
