barbara gordon creating her own identity outside of batgirl, no longer a subordinate of batman, gee can’t have that let’s erase all her growth and shove her into a role she’s outgrown and displace and erase her proteges in the process
and here’s a post because 1) barbara is one of us and 2) look how gorgeous she is *u*
and yeah i just like this set of panels
especially because i like how barbara will just like, do stuff because she needs to be doing *something* to keep her massive brain occupied. like, this is the woman who got a law degree because she was BORED. easily bored and hellishly determined.
like pls “i had nothing else to do” barbara i love you so much
I regret nothing.

“The replacing of Stephanie Brown with Barbara Gordon in an upcoming story arc of Smallville has been handled by those in charge has made me completely sure of one thing: I’m DONE with DC Comics. There are so many things I love about the DCU and still several books that I appreciate and enjoy, but I WON’T support a company that has such an utter lack of respect for its characters, fans, AND creators.”
