    I heard it gets too drawn out and lasts for longer than it should. Is it boring or will it appeal to all Batman fans?

    I love me some Babs, but it's Cass by a extremely wide margin.

    Definitely Barbara Gordon. Have always loved her since her debut, and I am absolutely loving her Batgirl solo series right now.

    Cass was a great Batgirl too, but I just love Gordon more, and she does have seniority over the title. Stephanie is great, but she is way better as the Spoiler.

    So, I'm guessing you're in you fifties (or older)?

    Oh god no! My first experience reading about her was that issue after I saw her on the animated series.

    Cass. I feel she brings somethings to the mantle that the others don't. The whole fact that she couldn't speak well meant that she had to be a purely visual character which is hard to do with a primary character but is very interesting none the less. Then I feel she had the coolest costume to.

    I love Cassandra Cain but the Batgirl mantle never really felt right for her IMO. I prefer her developing her own identity, like Black Bat.

    My Batgirl will always be Babs, especially the current run and how it's taking elements from my favorite interpretations of her: Batman '66, The Animated Series and Year One.

    Yeah I like when heroes get their own unique identity. I liked seeing Cass and Steph going down their own paths as the Black Bat and Spoiler. Makes them much more unique imo like it did with Dick and Jason Todd as Nightwing and Red Hood.

    What did you like about Babs in the Batman '66 though?

    So, that's not really "since her debut" then.

    Also, your "Oh god no!" almost sounds like your offended by possibly being considered old enough to have read Barbara as Batgirl since back in the 1960s?

    Or are you assuming nobody here would be that old?

    Pretty much this Batgirl of Burnside is seriously one of the best comics published in the last ten years.

    Small sample size and all that, but comparing this poll to the last "Favorite Batgirl" poll I remember from this board (immediately after the New 52 was announced) is interesting. Back then, Steph and Cass were neck-and-neck, with Barbara a semi-distant third. What a difference a few years (and committed cross-line promotion) makes.

    Like it or not (and there are plenty in each camp), DC wanted one "definitive" Batgirl, they went about it calculatedly (frequent Babs guest appearances in other books, selective continuity adjustment, keeping Stephanie and Cassandra away for a few years), and -- again, small sample size acknowledged -- data like this suggests their strategy worked exactly as desired. Some may like that and some may not, but objectively speaking, they achieved exactly what they set out to do.

    Indeed it was a rather skilled play on the part of DC. On a side note too bad Marvel couldn't do the same with the original Venom, but I digress....

    Definitely Barbara Gordon! Just not the Burnside version.
