The first appearance of Bat-Girl, from Batman #139 (April 1961). Art by Sheldon Moldoff.

Bat-Girl was Betty Kane (first appearance: Batman #139, 1961), the niece of Kathy Kane, Batwoman. Batwoman and Bat-Girl were created to be romantic interests for Batman and Robin as much as crime-fighting associates. Bat-Girl wore a red-and-green costume to "flatter" Robin. Bat-Girl appeared seven times between 1961 and 1964, but then disappeared in 1964 (along with Batwoman, Ace the Bat-Hound, and Bat-Mite) when new Batman editor Julius Schwartz decided these characters were too silly.

Bat-Girl was retconned out of existence following the Crisis on Infinite Earths. However, even though Bat-Girl did not exist in Post-Crisis continuity, a superheroine named Flamebird was introduced who had many similarities to Bat-Girl in her costume, her interest in tennis, her history with Titans West, and her romantic connection to Robin.

Main article: Barbara Gordon

The Silver Age and Bronze Age Batgirl was librarian-by-day Barbara Gordon (first appearance: Detective Comics #359, 1967), daughter of Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon. On her way to a masquerade ball dressed as a female version of Batman, Barbara (also known as Babs) halted a kidnapping attempt on Bruce Wayne by the villainous Killer Moth, attracting the attention of Batman and leading to a crime-fighting career.

At first, Batman did not approve of Barbara's involvement in crime-fighting, but as she solved more cases, beat more villains, and became more skilled, Batgirl gained Batman's respect and trust. Barbara Gordon appeared as Batgirl from 1967 to 1988, but she is frequently featured as Batgirl in "flashback" stories.


After relinquishing her role as Batgirl, Barbara Gordon was later shot in the spine and crippled by the Joker. She continued to fight crime, even though she was wheelchair bound, under the guise of Oracle, a free-lance information broker and expert hacker who has supported a number of different heroes, but most notably as the founder of and brains behind the Birds of Prey.

An earthquake had leveled Gotham City, the government declared the city a No Man's Land and Batman disappeared. To bring order to the city, the Huntress assumed the mantle of The Bat (she discovered criminals feared her more as Batgirl than they did when she was the Huntress).

Cassandra Cain

Main article: Cassandra Cain
Cassandra Cain as Batgirl. Art by Tony Daniel.

Cassandra Cain was a young woman of partly Asian descent who became the third Batgirl with the approval of both Batman and Barbara Gordon. She was given Helena Bertinelli's costume. Trained by her father, assassin David Cain, to be the ultimate martial artist and assassin, Cassandra was not taught to speak. Instead, the parts of her brain normally used for speech were trained so she could read other people's movements and body language and predict, with uncanny accuracy, their next move. This also caused her brain to develop learning functions different from most, a form of dyslexia that hampers her abilities to read and write.

It’s a mystery revolving around Barbara Gordon and Arkham Asylum, why she’s become Batgirl and more importantly why she remains Batgirl. It’s essentially our Batman: Long Halloween or Superman: For All Seasons for Batgirl."[citation needed]


Batgirl in other media

Television

The Barbara Gordon Batgirl appeared in the final season of the live-action Batman television series in 1967, the same year as her comic-book debut. In fact, she was created in cooperation with the show's producers, who wanted a female character who could be added to the show's regular cast. This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ...


Some uncertainty exists over who developed what aspects of the character, with one often cited (although almost certainly incorrect) version claiming that DC Comics simply took the idea wholesale from the TV show. However Julius Schwartz, editor of the Batman comic book at the time, apparently claimed that he instigated Batgirl as a way of transferring some of the large female demographic of the TV show over to the comic. When the TV producers saw rough "concept" artwork by artist Carmine Infantino during a visit to DC Comics offices, they optioned the character in a bid to help sell a third season to a skeptical ABC television network. DC Comics is one of the largest American companies in comic book and related media publishing. ...

Yvonne Craig as Batgirl.

Batman series producers Bill Dozier and Howie Horowitz have variously claimed credit for aspects of Batman (for example the characters of Alfred the Butler and Aunt Harriet) which they clearly borrowed from elsewhere. It's unlikely that this is a deliberate attempt to mislead, merely a result of faulty memories coupled with loose story telling. With this in mind, and recalling that the show's own credits claim Batgirl as being the property of DC Comics, Schwartz's account is likely to be closer to the truth.

In the Batman TV series, Batgirl was played by Yvonne Craig. A seven minute pilot reel was created to try out the new character. The reel starts in the Gotham City Library, where librarian Barbara Gordon is dealing with Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. The Killer Moth and his henchmen attack the library, locking Barbara in an office. Bruce and Dick leave, to return as Batman and Robin, while Barbara opens a secret door to reveal her Batgirl closet, and transforms her dowdy librarian attire into a Batgirl costume (the skirt becomes a cape, etc). This "transformation," borrowed from the comic book, was dropped in the series proper as it meant Barbara would always wear the same outfit. This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... Yvonne Craig, early 60s. ... Gotham (gŏth´əm) is a town in Nottinghamshire, England. ...

Secret passages are sometimes concealed using large items of furniture, such as this reconstruction of the bookcase that covered the entrance to Anne Franks secret room. ... A comic book is a magazine or book containing the art form of comics. ...


It has been suggested that the original intent of this pilot reel was to sell Batgirl in her own half hour show, early in the evening, while the Batman show would screen later that night to conclude the storyline. At the end of the reel, there is indeed a brief Batgirl theme tune and a caption featuring a Batgirl logo. However, given the mediocre ratings of the previous Batman season, the notion that the reel was to pitch a spin-off show seems unlikely.


The TV Batgirl was not allowed the fighting skills displayed by her comic book counterpart. She was permitted only to kick and throw objects at criminals, often facilitating an easy capture. Television networks at the time generally did not show women in realistic combat situations (indeed possibly the first US small screen fist fight involving a woman was penned by Batman script writer Stanley Ralph Ross, for the 1975 Lynda Carter 'Wonder Woman' pilot movie). In the 27 episodes in which Batgirl appeared, she never captured the crooks all on her own, although she rescued the Dynamic Duo at least once. A comic book is a magazine or book containing the art form of comics. ... Stanley Ralph Ross (July 22, 1937, New York City – March 16, 2000) started his career in advertising, however soon went to work as a writer and actor on various television shows, most notably cult-classics such as the 1960s Batman series starring Adam West and also The Monkees. ... 1975 (MCMLXXV) was a common year starting on Wednesday. ...

A more elderly version of the character, voiced by Stockard Channing, appeared in the futuristic spin-off, Batman Beyond. Here she had given up on ("grown out of", she insisted) costumed crime-fighting and followed her father into the police force, eventually becoming the Gotham Police Commissioner herself. It is alluded to that she and Bruce Wayne had an intimate relationship, after she ended her disastrous tryst with Nightwing. The animated series contained no version of The Killing Joke, so Barbara Gordon kept the use of her legs and there is no evidence she ever became Oracle. Barbara makes a claim that she was shot during her stint as Batgirl in the Batman Beyond episode, "A Touch of Curare", which causes her role of Oracle to be a possibility.

In that series, Barbara was close friends with the teenaged eco-terrorist Pamela Isley, who became transformed into Poison Ivy in the same two-part special that introduced Batgirl. The two referred to each other as Red, a nod towards Harley Quinn's nickname for Poison Ivy in Batman: The Animated Series.
