Words nearly fail.
In the Comic Book Universe, Batgirl truly is, The Goddess on the Mountaintop, Buring like a Silver Flame...
With the exception of Batman, himself, in recent times the Lady Knight, Batgirl is presented in the most gritty realistic light. Thanks in large part to the comic, The Killing Joke.
In-Room originated by Barbara Gordon, one of ACL's Founding Members and a Senior Moderator. Resident Comic Book historian.
