    Unfortunately, they aren't finished raping Batgirl's dead corpse of acharacter yet. We still have Beechans *shiver* mini-series for Batgirl coming up that reestablishes her character post-turning her into the leader of the League of Assassins and having her try to kill Robin and so on.

    I'm going to be horrifically disappointed if they don't meet up again at some point in the near future since Dixon is largely responsible for writing both characters these days. It's be super easy for him to just have Batgirl show up in Robin or something since he doesn't have to worry about what else might be going on with her.

    It'd be kind of interesting to see Batgirl and Spoiler become a new Bat(wo)man and Robin team post Batman RIP. There's already been rumors of multiple Batmen and Robins following RIP, so what the heck.

    Batwoman and Robingirl?

    I approve. Then we can ignore the "real" Batwoman forever.

    I don't see why you wouldn't just call her Spoiler.

    Also, it'd be cool if she got to keep the invisibility tech she has in Gotham Underground, even though the Spoiler in that series probably isn't Spoiler.

    I never read it, but I loved how she was spontaneously aged because the relationship was illegal.

    It'd be a funny team, but I bet Stephanie would be attached to Tim if anyone post-RIP, and Beechen of all people seems to be the only one who gives Batgirl her due as being someone who could protect Gotham.

    She's one of my favorite DC characters (and I have very few) so just thinking about it gives me a headache.

    She can recover though, if Jason Aaron can make Ghost Rider readable after Daniel Way got done wiping his ass spinning that 19 issue turd, I believe in miracles.

    I don't understand the amount of hate Beechen gets from Batgirl fans. It's been made fairly obvious that the whole LOL EVIL thing was handed down to him from above and he just had to work with that.

    Yeah, but the problem is that his storyline had a whole bunch of plot points that just don't make sense, and even a passing familiarity with the character can reveal why they don't make sense. Like an illiterate character being able to write in Navajo code. And heck, the last story arc of the Batgirl book practically handed him a rationale for a heel turn on a silver platter, but for some reason he didn't use it. I still don't get that.

    I'm willing to give him a second chance because in every interview he seems pretty thoughtful and to have a desire to redeem himself. I'm still not sold on a lot of his ideas, but at least it seems like the new book is actually going to be about Batgirl and not some strange, stereotypical Dragon Lady using her name.

    I sort of assumed that he figured that it wouldn't make sense anyway he wrote it, so he just decided not to bother trying to mak it all fit together.

    My memory's foggy on the end of Batgirl, what was there that he could've used instead? I remember something involving her impaling a dieing Lady Shiva on a giant hook above a Lazurus Pit and walking off into a forest.

    And the very end of her book, she realizes that Bludhaven has been destroyed, but she could have possibly stopped it if she'd killed villains instead of just trying to lock them up. This leads to the whole brutal death of Lady Shiva thing, even if she was hung above a Lazarus Pit. If DC wanted her to go bad, Beechen could have just had her tired and disillusioned with the whole "no killing" thing and deciding that she wants to put the bad guys down permanently. Instead, she's mad because she had a sister apparently.

    No, not a yu-gi-oh reference, a yu-gi-oh the abridged series reference. Reference to parody series mocking the original does not equal reference to the original. And if you haven't watched yu-gi-oh the abridged series you're missing out.

    Someone told me something similar to this once about Naruto: The Abridged Series. Being a Naruto fan I figured I'd check it out and maybe chuckle at some inside references....that didn't happen. I never trusted the sense of humor of fellow con-goers ever again.
