This interview with Gail Simone should shed some light on the subject....

Frankly, I'm surprised that this hadn't already happened to Barbara. I mean, the technological upgrade that Metropolis had alone should have been able to allow a cure for her condition.

As for what might happen to her, I think she won't become a Batwoman or anything. The way I would do it would be that Barbara starts doing missions along with the BOP, and Oracle is upgraded to an AI that she can access at anytime. I think that would be a good compromise.

I don't think that would be a good compromise.

You know what I think? Let's say that Gail Simone does not return Oracle to a walking person again. That doesn't really matter, because the door to other, perhaps less capable writers has been opened to get Barbara out of the wheelchair and into the tights. It only takes one stupid writer to undo the injury from The Killing Joke.

yes, it took me long time...
the caped crusader is right, with the high tech tis a wonder no other writer had the idea to put her back into the tights. But i still don't really like the idea. oracle was in her way special. of course i'm looking forward to what happens now, for sure it'll take a lot of training to get her back to walking, she's been in that chair for years, so i wonder if she ever can work up again to full fighting skill. for now the birds are in metropolis and there's no mention of her toewiggling. let's see what'll come next smiley

Yes, we see the precedent already set with Jason.

Speaking of stupidity,where's the editorial staff? Where are the rules and standards?

Exactly, what the motherfucking cock is up with that? The entire 'Death in the Family' storyline, and the name, reduced to shit.
I really hate it when stroyarcs are ignored or even intentionally violated pure for the 'impact' factor.

Ugh, screw that man.

I think it's weird that in the DC universe where the fantastic is everyday that Babs didn't walk a year after getting shot. They did keep her in a wheelchair for 20 years, though, which in comic terms is a long time.

I recently read Birds of Prey #s 88-89, which is the first time I read it. It's a great series! Dinah and Ollie, Babs and her dad, great character moments.

Thanks man, I love you too. I love "what the motherfucking cock?" or "wtmfc?".

But yeah, speaking about Birds of Prey: click me, I'm an interview with Gail Simone on BOP.

I would like it if Barbara could walk again but must stays Oracle because she can't be Batgirl anymore because she is not a girl anymore she is a woman now. And Batwoman is already taken by a lesbian as Kate Kane, appears in the series 52.The second thing i want is that Barbara gets Pregnant by Dick.
