Powers/Skills: Genius, Technological Aptitude, Advanced Deduction, and Knowledge of Martial Arts
Voiced By: Mae Whitman and Ashlyn Selich (LEGO)
Batgirl is ca-rAy-zy smart. In fact, she's so smart that she got into Super Hero High based on her brain power alone, not her super powers (she wasn't born with any). When she's not honing her detective skills, she's figuring out cool new ways to use her incredible gadgets. The technowizard's top three traits are being cool, intelligent, and martial arts expert. Can't get your GPS tracker to work? Need to hack into a high security computer system that could thwart an enemy attack? If the answer is yes, then look no further than the computer wiz herself, Batgirl. Batgirl's just as comfortable throwing a roundhouse kick as she is fixing a motherboard. She's just your everyday teenager, except she's not. With advanced deduction skills, Batgirl is a natural-born detective, who loves solving complex problems and finding the clues that others may have missed.
Barbara Gordon is the daughter of Police Commissioner Gordon. Growing up, she got interested in dinosaurs and palentology was her first foray into detective work. She initially attended Gotham City High School and worked in Super Hero High School's I.T. department as tech support. Principal Waller personally hired her. She also helps out with the Metropolis Junior Detectives Society and tinkers with Cyborg when he's in need of a little maintenance. Her personal motto was "Always be ready." Towards the end of Wonder Woman's tour, she approached and introduced herself as Barbara Gordon then handed out her network password, ORACLE 1967. Wonder Woman hoped to see her in class but Gordon revealed she was just the I.T. girl, not a student. Principal Waller tasked Wonder Woman with convincing Supergirl to attend Super Hero High. Gordon set up the call. She later attended the party thrown for Wonder Woman to celebrate her first defeat of a supervillain, Giganta.
Gordon's last week of work was marked by Supergirl's first day at Super Hero High. While Commissioner Gordon checked in on her, Cheetah interrupted and presented her wrecked phone courtesy of Killer Croc. Barbara Gordon couldn't fix it so she loaned a Barbara Assembled Tech. Cheetah was annoyed it had no apps. Six hours later, Harley Quinn called out for Gordon to help Supergirl get connected to the Internet from her dorm. She noticed Supergirl was on the Korugar Academy website. Supergirl admitted it was a back up in case she screwed up again. Gordon looked at her classes and was surprised Supergirl didn't know the three pows. Gordon took her to the library and introduced her to Granny Goodness. Granny picked out several books to help Supergirl catch up on superheroing. The next day, while packing, Gordon noticed Supergirl up at the bell tower. She pulled the rope and awoke the roosting bats. Gordon admitted she admired them for making the best of what they had - echo location. Supergirl didn't follow and referrred to her as 'Batgirl.'
Gordon assured her Earth was safer with her around but she just needed some training. For her last week, Gordon helped Supergirl train on the side. Gordon stated the first step to being super was to believe in her super self. Gordon also repaired Wonder Woman's shield and added a blaster option. Gordon returned the shield to Wonder Woman and asked her to be Supergirl's sparring partner. Wonder Woman was surprised to learn she was Supergirl's idol. Wonder Woman agreed to help. Supergirl raised her Flight Track score from 14 to 95. On her last day, Gordon was sullen. Commissioner Gordon tried to cheer her up and promised to make spaghetti for dinner. Gordon went to see Supergirl and promised they would hang out on weekends. She presented a friendship bracelet that doubled as a comm link. Supergirl had a gift for Gordon, too. It was a super suit made by Katana. Some time later, while eating in the cafeteria, Gordon saw a report about a battle in downtown with Giganta.
Gordon tried to hail Supergirl on the comm but she was too weak. Gordon found her in the Boom Tube room next to a chunk of Kryptonite. Gordon threw it into the Boom Tube to Florida and took Supergirl back to her office. Gordon calculated Granny's brainwashing frequency and created the De-Trancer but needed a crystal to conduct the energy. Supergirl loaned her good luck charm necklace from Krypton because she now believed in her super self. Gordon instructed her on using the De-Trancer than gave frequency shielding earrings for protection. Supergirl wanted Gordon to come with her and declared there was a super in her, too. She donned the super suit and called herself Batgirl. Batgirl realized detrancing one super at a time would take too long and they would be caught. She plotted to use the Amethyst to amplify her device and free everyone all at once. Supergirl led Big Barda away. As Batgirl scaled the building, Stompa and Artemiz tried to take her out. Vice Principal Grodd saw Batgirl and saw what was going on outside. He leaped out and took an arrow for Batgirl. She succeeded and planted the De-Trancer. Everyone was freed and rallied to defend the school.
Batgirl caught up to Supergirl at the Flight Track and bound Barda up in grapple wire. With Wonder Woman, they went after Granny Goodness. Supergirl ultimately saved the day by capturing Granny with super proof steel and flying her devastating Granny Grenade into the sky. Granny and her underlings were dispatched to Belle Reve Penitentiary and Juvenile Detention Center. Batgirl hugged Grodd and thanked him. He had enough of the mushy stuff but gave her a pet on the head. Cheetah thanked her for the Barbara Assembled Tech and even called her by name. She corrected her, she was Batgirl now. While everyone else cheered, Batgirl called her father up to check on the spaghetti. The next day, a celebration was held. Supergirl was honored. Gordon was surprised to learn she was accepted to Super Hero High as Batgirl on Wonder Woman's recommendation and the faculty's approval. She swung down and hugged Supergirl and Batgirl. Commissioner Gordon was very proud and very nervous.
She joined the Metropolis Junior Detective Society, Vehicles Club, and Citizens Helping Extraterrestrials Succeed Society (CHESS). Her CHESS buddy was Supergirl. Batgirl turned to her flyer friends for help flying. Thanks to Bumblebee, Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman, and Supergirl, she got the hang of it. However, Red Tornado assigned her to detention for flying without a license. She was soon declared Hero of the Month. Batgirl underestimated her Advanced Survival Skills final and lost the use of Oracle after it shorted out in water and her utility belt after it was caught in a branch and flung away. She fashioned a makeshift belt and Batarang from a vine and some wood but almost fell down a waterfall and was chased around by a tiger. She arrived, covered in mud, at the designated recon spot before sundown and passed. Poison Ivy noticed she suffered a break out on her face from contact with poison oak. Hawkgirl, Flash and Batgirl spent a night rounding up cats, that happened to be released by Riddler as part of ploy to ask Batgirl out to the dance.
Batgirl dropped down with the last cat. After following a clue on the last cat to the clock tower across the Daily Planet. They rescued a man tied up and hung upside down from the clock face. Batgirl found a second clue taped to his back. They followed the next clue to the Centennial Park flower beds but Hawkgirl and Flash were caught in a net. Hawkgirl urged Batgirl to go on and catch the perp. She found the Riddler. He fabricated the crimes and clues to find someone who understood him and to ask her to the school dance. Batgirl turned him down and slapped a handcuff on him. Batgirl, Bumblebee, and Ivy overheard Frost's sneezes and investigated her dorm room. It was totally frozen. They spent the rest of the day and the entire night tending to Frost. Batgirl tried turning on a humidifier but it was frozen. By the next morning, Frost was back to normal and in good spirits again. Batgirl, Ivy, and Bumblebee, however, caught her cold.
The day before semester finals, Batgirl watched Cheetah and Wonder Woman spar in P.E. class then went to the school assembly and Intro to Super Suits. At the end of class, Batgirl talked about her super suit ending with how her stealth-wear was complemented by an enhanced utility belt. While trying to study for finals, Batgirl was interrupted by Harley's dubstep. Batgirl took a zipline out of her dorm room. She settled on a bench but was disturbed by Poison Ivy talking to a potted plant. She hid by a palm tree but was disrupted by Beast Boy and Katana playing their game of Super Hide-and-Seek. She went to the Capes & Cowls Cafe but the broken smoothie machine made too much noise. She left school in the Batjet and landed somewhere in Centennial Park. She went to a mail bin and dropped down a trap door into a Batmobile that took her straight to her alpha Batcave. After 8 pm, she heard a giant thud. Just above her, Giganta was defeated in the park by Wonder Woman, Lady Shiva, and Hawkgirl. She took the Batmobile to her beta Batcave.
Batgirl was again interrupted when Lex Luthor and Poison Ivy fought above in the Lexcorp Garden Supply store. She returned to campus and sought to go to a third Batcave, the only one that was completely soundproof. She waited until Commissioner Gordon, the only teacher in the faculty lounge, to leave then went to the common watercooler. A retinal scan confirmed her and a secret passage opened behind the watercooler. Luthor ambushed Batgirl in the Batcave. After 11:52 pm, Batgirl went to work on building a power amplifier for Ivy with what gear she still had on herself. The next morning, Luthor was defeated by his would be targets - Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Katana, Poison Ivy, Bumblebee, and Harley Quinn. They raced back to campus but returned after 9 am. Luckily, Lois Lane found Luthor's video blog, which recorded their battle, and forwarded it to Batgirl. She showed to Principal Waller as proof they all improved their powers since their entrance evaluation. Waller approved and passed them but gave them three weeks detention for breaking various rules.
On the Wednesday evening before the Hero of the Year ceremony, Batgirl was woken up by Oracle after it detected an intruder in Sector D. She alerted Wonder Woman, Bumblebee, Supergirl, and Harley Quinn. They eventually found Big Barda in Crazy Quilt's classroom. After a brief skirmish, Principal Waller arrived and informed them Barda was reformed and now a student at Super Hero High. Batgirl noticed Supergirl didn't go back to sleep either. Supergirl was trying to draw a picture of her parents so she wouldn't forget them. Batgirl got an idea and let her state of the art police sketch program work on it. It printed out an exact likeness of Zor-El and Alura. The next day, while being interviewed by Lois Lane, Batgirl was alerted of suspicious activity at the Amethyst. Even Principal Waller didn't know what was going on and assigned guard duty until she did. Wonder Woman asked Batgirl to fix her Wonder Shield after Barda damaged it by accident the previous night. Batgirl admitted it was beyond her expertise.
Despite her misgivings, Batgirl agreed to take Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Bumblebee on an impromptu field trip to Themyscira to get the Wonder Shield repaired by the Master Alchemist. She got an off-campus pass from Waller and fueled up the Batjet. They inadvertently brought over a Shadow Demon who stole the ruby from Wonder Woman's Tiara of Triumph and damaged Bumblebee's suit. Supergirl confided in Batgirl and told her about the Mnemosyne Crystal showing her Krypton. They returned around lunchtime the next day and were greeted by a very worried Commissioner Gordon. He informed them a supervillain attacked Hawkgirl while she guarded the Amethyst. The Metropolis Junior Detective Society called an emergency meeting. Once Hawkgirl identified the villain as Dark Opal from Gemworld, Batgirl realized there could be a connection to Supergirl's crystal. She found Supergirl at Capes & Cowls and they returned to the annex for analysis. Batgirl discovered a repeating pattern, like Morse Code, in the crystal.
Later that Friday night, Batgirl went to Bumblebee's dorm to drop off some hero history homework she left behind. Batgirl discovered Bumblebee was stuck in shrunken mode due to the damage her suit sustained against the Shadow Demon. Batgirl raised Bumblebee's spirits and reminded her she did the impossible before and made her super suit. The next day, they helped in the search for Dark Opal and ended up at Capes & Cowls. Batgirl asked Steve Trevor but he hadn't seen him. Wonder Woman and Supergirl entered, not having found any leads either but the former refused to give up and go to the Hero of the Year ceremony. Batgirl took them to the arcade section where she built one of her secret Batcave bunkers. They watched the monitors and rushed to Centennial Park to confront Opal but it turned out to be a steampunk cosplayer late for a meeting. Batgirl and Bumblebee took the Batjet to the roof of the Daily Planet and scanned the city. Somehow, Dark Opal hacked into Batgirl's communication bracelet and issued an ultimatum.
Eclipso and Opal kidnapped Hippolyta, the Kents, and Commissioner Gordon and wanted Supergirl's Mnemosyne Crystal in exchange. They went to Booster's Gold Mine even though they knew it was a trap. Luckily, Bumblebee sneaked aboard the Batjet and came to their rescue after stealing Eclipso's Black Diamond. Batgirl took her and the parents back to campus where Eclipso and Opal's forces were running amok. Batgirl implored Wonder Woman to follow Supergirl to the Moon and stop Eclipso once and for all while she handled the defeated Dark Opal. Poison Ivy informed Batgirl light destroyed the shadows but the school's power supply was sabotaged. Batgirl made her way to the utility room and reconnected several plugs. The lights came back online and the supers turned the tide. Batgirl vaporized the last shadow. Bumblebee alerted her she found a piece of Supergirl's crystal in the lawn. She shared a theory that if they could study Supergirl's crystal they could create a synthetic version to power her super suit. Supergirl overheard and gave her a sliver. Batgirl used a tweezer and Beast Boy's monocle to place the sliver in Bumblebee's battery case. It worked and she was restored to normal.
Batgirl was targeted by Killer Moth and he shot down her Batjet. When she came to, she was wrapped upside down in a cocoon in his hideout. Moth wanted her to be his new partner in crime. He even thought of a team name, the Creatures of the Night, and made matching jackets and mugs. He checked with her if she was a size medium. Supergirl picked up on Batgirl's emergency beacon and took her rocketship straight to Moth's hideout. Supergirl used her heat vision to free Batgirl. She tied up Moth and informed him the Special Crimes Unit would be coming for him. Moth inquired what her decision was. Batgirl declared she already had the World's Finest partner, Supergirl. They did their secret handshake and hugged to his dismay. She had a picnic with Starfire and Beast Boy in Centennial Park but Lion Mane and his animal army put it on hold. Batgirl saved a young girl from a tiger by shooting a tranquilizer dart from her right gauntlet. Once Lion Mane showed himself, he hypnotized Beast Boy but Starfire attacked. Batgirl got him with a bola then tranquilized him. They teamed with zoo volunteer Mari McCabe to save the animals and in turn she saved Batgirl from Lion Mane's revenge.
Batgirl battled Lion Mane at the Metropolis Docks one early Friday morning before school started. Supergirl and Wonder Woman aided her. She later clocked Lion Mane with a fish. After school got out, Batgirl asked Harley to alert everyone the Batjet would leave in an hour. Soon enough, the Batjet went missing. Naturally, Batgirl freaked out. The Metropolis Junior Detective Society gathered and went over the crime scene again. Bumblebee found a strand of pink hair from a wig. They went to Batgirl's alpha Batcave and analyzed the hair. After Flash embarrassed himself accusing Grodd, Batgirl deduced the most likely place to find a wig at Super Hero High was the Theater Department. Cheetah would not allow them in because there was a closed rehearsal going on. Batgirl complied and had Bumblebee go into the auditorium door's keyhole. They attempted to search back stage but Hawkgirl's wings got caught in the curtain. Ravager, Star Sapphire, and Mammoth captured the intruders.
Batgirl insisted they were trying to help Ravager protect the sacred space of the theater. Ravager was intrigued and asked her to explain. She didn't believe someone stole a wig. She showed them the costume room. Only she, Etrigan and Waller had a key. To her horror, the room was in disarray. Flash found Etrigan's copy of "The Odyssey" on the ground. Batgirl concluded Etrigan was in trouble. They checked his classroom and found it was a mess as well. Batgirl hailed Wonder Woman on the communication bracelet. Supergirl called in asking for reinforcements at the Portal Coffee Shop. Poison Ivy, Batgirl, Harley, Wonder Woman, Miss Martian, Supergirl, Katana, Beast Boy, Hawkgirl, the Flash, and Bumblebee put down the Battle of the Bands. In the scuffle, Wonder Woman discovered a portal to the Underworld. Batgirl recognized the smell of sulfur from Etrigan's classroom. Silver Banshee mentioned the Batjet was in the parking lot. Batgirl raced outside but she watched as Black Canary, Magpie, and Black Condor took off in it.
Batgirl, Supergirl, Ivy Hawkgirl, and Flash went after the Batjet. They tracked it to Smallville but Batgirl insisted on peaceful resolution because she didn't want super powers to scratch its paint job. Batgirl hung to the Batjet by a grapple and climbed up to the wing. She tried to talk Black Canary down but fell off. Supergirl caught her and stopped the plane before it crashed into the Kent Farm. While Magpie was distracted by Wonder Woman's shiny bracelets, Batgirl tied her up. Soon enough, Condor and Canary were caught. Everyone boarded the Batjet and were carried to Themyscira by Supergirl and Wonder Woman for the latter's slumber party. A Intro to Prehistory field trip to the Jurassic Era went bad and the timeline was altered. Batgirl salvaged and repaired the Time Machine school bus with what raw materials she could gather. They returned to an alternate present where Vandal Savage was in charge of Savage High. Batgirl attempted to further repair the bus but Harley activated it after a teacher, Doc Magnus, barged in on them.
Now in the year 2150, Batgirl and Harley were captured by the Atomic Knights and accused of being spies for Savage. Harley exonerated them by playing with the knights' Giant Dalmatians. She was surprised taking one dinosaur egg would change the future. Batgirl was irate and blamed her for everything. To make matters worse, the egg was back at Savage High. However, the bus' self-driving mode was broken and they jumped to random points in time. They met Amelia Earhart in 1914, Emily Dickinson in 1847, Native American women who recorded in a myth called "The Two," witch fearing Puritans, and a young Amanda Waller in the late 1980s on June 15. They returned to Savage High in 2017 but Savage was waiting with his faculty. He revealed he had been hunting them for centuries and long vowed to destroy them. Batgirl led the charge and the battle began. Wonder Woman and the others arrived to even the odds. She recalled Magnus taught them to use electromagnetic pulse attacks against robots and took out the Metal Men. She told everyone to use their teachers' best advice against their alternate versions.
Batgirl faced off against Savage. He demanded to know why she was following him through time. She blurted out she saw a future he conquered as she flipped him. He grabbed her by the leg and hung her over a balcony declaring she couldn't change the past or the future. Harley and her baby pterodactyl Bitey McPuddin' Face came to her rescue. Harley decided to stay in the past with the dinosaurs where she couldn't ruin anything. Batgirl apologized and admitted she would go back in time and take back what she said if she could but was terrible at time travel. Harley perked up. Batgirl reminded her she was good at acrobatics, making people laugh, stealing dinosaur eggs, and better than her at dinosaurs. They made sure Bitey and its mother were reunited then returned to the bus. The present was mostly restored except the principal was Luicius Fox. Batgirl deduced the problem and asked Harley to come with her on the bus because only she could help.
They checked in on Amelia Earhart and Emily Dickinson but those parts of history were intact. They went back to June 15 in the 1980s to save a young Amanda Waller from Solomon Grundy. They were knocked into trash cans. Batgirl stopped Harley and removed a banana peel from her head. Waller joined them and together, they defeated Grundy. Waller thanked them and told them to call her Amanda. The girls were smitten. Before they teleported to the present, Batgirl advised Waller to remember three words, "Super Hero High." The present was restored to the way it was before. Harley and Batgirl found Waller. Harley couldn't help herself and hugged Waller then called her Amanda. Waller knew they came back from the 1980s and admitted she should be thanking them. She finished by warning them never to call her by her first name or they would get detention. Batgirl was voted "World's Finest Team" with Supergirl in the Super Hero High School Yearbook. She was also voted "Coolest Cave."
Batgirl teamed up with Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Bumblebee to clear Metropolis of crime before everyone left on summer vacation. Batgirl stopped Killer Moth from wrapping the city in a cocoon. With every villain accounted for, Batgirl went on a tour of Europe with Beast Boy and Katana. While they visited the British Museum in London, Batgirl got a call from Wonder Woman but a guard reminded her about the rules. They ended up volunteering to help solve a museum theft in the Greek Hall. They spotted the thief near the London Eye and chased her past the Sherlock Holmes Museum, that got Batgirl's attention, Buckingham Palace, and Big Ben. The thief knocked out Beast Boy and Katana with a sleep grenade. Batgirl climbed the clock face outside but the thief was at the top and kicked her grapnel line away. Batgirl dangled from the hands and regrouped. Beast Boy came to, turned into an eagle, and saved Batgirl. Katana searched the tower and found a map left behind. They relocated to Cod Rest His Sole Fish & Chips and studied the map.
Batgirl started searching museums and galleries with Greek antiquities and discovered the map was of the Louvre in Paris. They walked the floor and saw around 300 Greek artifacts while they waited for the thief to appear. Batgirl left a voicemail on Hawkgirl's phone asking for help researching the Golden Olive Branch. Katana remembered most of a museum's collection was kept in storage. Batgirl bypassed the security keypad but they were almost immediately surrounded by French police and arrested for the theft of the Shield of Ares. The thief was content with them taking the fall and left for Themyscira. Commissioner Gordon was naturally upset to her she was arrested and reminded her she wasn't supposed to be superheroing outside of Metropolis. Batgirl insisted they were onto something big and she got her inability to drop a case from him. Gordon told her to be careful and not to get arrested again. Batgirl promised and told him she loved him. Beast Boy chimed in. Gordon reciprocated to her but told Beast Boy he was a fine young man.
Hawkgirl returned Batgirl's call and shared what she found out so far. The Shield of Ares granted its bearer invulnerability but the Golden Olive Branch and Amulet of Harmonia could cancel out its power. Hawkgirl realized the Amulet was on Themyscira. Batgirl tried to call Wonder Woman but she was busy looking for Zeus' Chimera. They drove their rental mopeds to the Charles De Gaulle Airport for a flight to Greece. Once they landed, they flew to Mount Olympus and interrupted Ares and Strife from taking Wonder Woman. Ares and Strife revealed they were planning to invade Metropolis and spread war. Strife used her ability to sway her brothers and sisters Apollo, Aphrodite, Demeter, Hermes, Janus, and Siracca towards their side. Wonder Woman refused to stand down. Ares attacked but Zeus jumped in front and took the fire blast himself. Zeus reminded her he was immortal and implored her and her friends to defend Metropolis. Bumblebee got an idea and asked Hermes to deliver a message to Supergirl in Smallville. Hermes was bound to deliver it.
On Bumblebee's order, the supers all grabbed hold of Hermes and were teleported to Smallville with him. They briefed Supergirl, Lady Shiva, and Big Barda about Ares and Strife. Gordon called Batgirl and told her there were new supers wrecking havoc in the city. During the big battle, Batgirl fell under Strife's spell and fought Beast Boy. She called her the worst travel companion ever and declared she'd never invite him on a trip again. Beast Boy countered he didn't need anyone because he was a lone wolf. Wonder Woman, Bumblebee, Siracca, and Hawkgirl realized there was third way to counter Ares and Strife, the bond of sisterhood. Wonder Woman pointed out she wouldn't have gotten through forensics class if it weren't for Batgirl's patient tutoring. Batgirl came to. After Ares and Strife were defeated, Batgirl helped return the Golden Olive Branch to the British Museum.
Batgirl was one of Wonder Woman's guests to Themyscira to celebrate the Party of Plenty but ended up fighting Ares, who was mad Zeus didn't come to his feast. For one of Crazy Quilt's stealth suit assignments, she was paired up with Poison Ivy. Batgirl found her fashion sense too frivolous and green. She tried to take the lead and make several designs but Ivy recalled they had to make their suits together. Batgirl's one suit and Ivy's various attempts failed to avoid detection by Solomon Grundy, Killer Croc, Trigon, Firefly, and Giganta. On the day before the due date, Batgirl was worried she would be failed for the first time and even kicked out of school. She was alerted of suspicious activity in Sector C. Batgirl checked the feeds and watched as Crazy Quilt was kidnapped by Killer Moth. Ivy presented her latest try at a stealth suit and Batgirl approved. They set off in the Batjet to save Crazy Quilt.
Batgirl was impressed with Ivy's decision to use pollen to reveal Killer Moth's infrared laser alarm. The girls sneaked onto the main stage. Batgirl stopped Ivy from touching the laser cannon then followed her lead and hid behind a potted plant. Once Ivy pulled Quilt to safety, Batgirl announced herself by insulting Moth's costume. Moth tried to run for it but Batgirl shot a grapnel line and cut him off then threw a Batarang at his head. Moth rolled over and wrapped her up with his cocoon gun. As she struggled free, Ivy blocked off Moth's exit. Batgirl got free and activated the laser cannon with a Batarang. Moth was zapped. Batgirl had Oracle remotely summon the Batty Wagon and Moth was placed inside. Quilt was impressed with their suits and gave the partnership project an A+. Batgirl and Hawkgirl captured the Cloaked Shadow and took her to Belle Reve Penitentiary. Once inside, the Shadow revealed herself as Lashina and poisoned Commissioner Gordon with a dart. Lashina presented them with the option of stopping her or saving Gordon then offered a clue about the antidote's location.
Hawkgirl let Lashina go. While piloting the Batjet, Batgirl contemplated Lashina's riddle. Batgirl realized the place that would most remind Lashina of home was the Centennial Park Tarpits and turned around. Batgirl searched the west quadrant and sighted the antidote in a box on top of an elephant statue. She jumped branch to branch to get in range then fired a grapnel line to the elephant's trunk. The added weight caused the elephant to sink a little. Batgirl lost her balance and fell into the tarpit. She called out for Hawkgirl then told her to save Gordon first. Hawkgirl retrieved the antidote then blew back to the Batjet and poured the antidote down Gordon's throat. Hawkgirl pulled Batgirl out but as a result, both were drenched in tar. Gordon came to in a hospital room. Batgirl apologized for letting the Furies escape but Gordon told her a good hero had to make tough choices and she made the right ones. He realized the room smelled like tar. Batgirl joked crime stinks. Both she and Hawkgirl were drenched in tar.
Commissioner Gordon was eager to get back to work but Batgirl reminded him the doctors wanted him to stay until they were sure all the the Apokoliptian poison was out of his system. They heard the footstops of Giganta pass near the hospital. After Giganta caused a blackout, Batgirl set off to help restore power. She landed outside to see Silver St. Cloud arguing about a car accident. She found Wonder Woman and Supergirl securing Giganta and Cyborg went offline from using all his power in the battle. Batgirl knew Lightning could help and found her with Thunder ushering people into Capes & Cowls Cafe. Batgirl and Lightning returned to the sub-station. Lightning lacked the confidence to charge up the station until Thunder arrived and gave her a pep talk. Soon, Metropolis was back to normal. Thunder and Lightning were awarded for their accomplishment. In the audience, Batgirl what it was like to have sister. Supergirl and Wonder Woman reminded her she had them and gave her a super hug. She reminded them not to hug so hard.
Mrs. Clayface came up with a plan to steal Batgirl's gear to break her husband out of Arkham Asylum. She infiltrated Super Hero High School with her shapeshifting powers and impersonated faculty members. She posed as Wildcat for P.E. class and confiscated Batgirl's grapnel gun on grounds the class frowned on gear. As Red Tornado, she confiscated the Batjet and revoked Batgirl's Flyer's License on the grounds she flew 282 in a 280 zone. She posed as Commissioner Gordon and took Batgirl's gauntlets for texting during Forensics class. Lastly, as Waller, she gathered all of the confiscated gear and directed Batgirl to fill out paperwork for each piece she wanted back. Batgirl sulked at her locker, drawing the attention of the real Principal Waller. Batgirl realized something was up and ran to the Batjet. Mrs. Clayface quickly started up the Batjet but didn't have its controls down, allowing Batgirl the chance to jump on. Clayface searched for the windshield wipers. After hitting the air conditioning and radio, she found the wipers.
Batgirl was pushed off the hood but she held onto a wing and climbed back. She opened the hatch, got in, and fought for the wheel. As they approached two buildings, Batgirl turned the jet sideways to avoid a crash then turned the jet upside down. Mrs. Clayface nearly fell out but clung to the hatch. Batgirl spared her and swung the jet back and she landed in the back seat. The jet's fuel was depleted and the jet landed in a park. Mrs. Clayface gloated and declared Batgirl wasn't so super without her gear and jet. She fashioned her hands into a mallet and mace. Batgirl made her way atop a lightpole then retorted she didn't need them to defeat her. Mrs. Clayface extended her arm and broke the light's glass dome. Batgirl leaped at her but Clayface receded her chest and she flew through. She charged but Batgirl jumped and Mrs. Clayface landed in a fountain. Batgirl kicked the light pole into the fountain and Mrs. Clayface was electrocuted. Batgirl declared she wouldn't be apart from Clayface anymore because she was going to join him at Arkham.
During an Ares incident, Batgirl went to the Bat Bunker at Capes & Cowls to retrieve her Mobile HQ. Flash arrived and asked what he could do to help. Ares' tremors triggered a cave-in. She had Flash grab what he could. They barely escaped in the Mobile HQ then picked up Frost, Lady Shiva, Ivy, and Harley at Super Hero High. Batgirl had Oracle run an analysis on Ares for any weaknesses. She directed Starfire and Bumblebee to fire on the lightning rod he was using as a weapon. Overcome with the energy surge, Ares was a sitting duck. Wonder Woman and Harley wrapped his legs while Beast Boy, Hawkgirl, and Miss Martian knocked him down. Ares rose back up and continued his rampage. To Batgirl and Flash's surprise, Miss Martian revealed she had psionic powers then used them to find the Amulet of Harmonia. They took off in the Mobile HQ for Catwoman's dorm but discovered the safe was protected by a visual scanner. Miss Martian surprised them again and revealed she could also shapeshift then impersonated Catwoman. Batgirl gave the Amulet to Flash to run back to the city.
With the Amulet back on Ares, the day was saved. Catwoman tried to drive off with the Mobile HQ but Batgirl activated her anti-theft device. Catwoman was ejected from the Mobile HQ. Batgirl observed cats don't always land on their feet. Batgirl helped free Wonder Woman from the Invisible Jet after Frost froze it to prevent it from sinking into the harbor during at battle against Killer Moth. Batgirl, Lady Shiva, and Big Barda worked on the Mobile HQ for shop class Mid-Terms. Just when Batgirl called it a night, the Mobile HQ picked up a crime alert. They set off on a test drive and encountered Perry the Parademon. Batgirl suspected Perry was being used by Granny to lure them into a trap but Barda believed he was abandoned and was correct. Batgirl attended Hal Jordan's going away party and helped defeat Solomon Grundy after he crashed the festivities. Batgirl walked him into the back of her Batty Wagon but Sinestro arrived and kidnapped Starfire, Flash, and Wonder Woman. Batgirl demanded their release.
Sinestro declared he only wanted "real" super powers, made a giant broom contruct, and swept her and the wagon away. Batgirl went to her bunker at Capes & Cowls and tried to warn Supergirl, Sinestro's last target. Reception was poor and Supergirl thought she was being told she was needed on Earth. Batgirl started to search for Jessica Cruz in the hope she recorded footage of Sinestro entering the passcode for his ship. Cruz ran into her after slamming a power ring into a trash can. The ring followed and hovered behind Batgirl. Cruz snatched it and led her back to Capes & Cowls. Batgirl connected her camera to her gauntlet and went over the footage. Cruz asked if she was scared of Sinestro. Batgirl denied it and noted he didn't think she was a threat which was to her advantage. Batgirl finally saw the ring and realized Cruz was chosen. Cruz admitted she was too scared. Batgirl told her being fearless isn't what makes a hero but being able to overcome their fear and do what's right. She told Cruz the ring knew she had the power and she just had to believe in her super self. Cruz put the ring on and transformed into a Green Lantern.
While Cruz battled Sinestro, Batgirl fired her grapple and sneaked aboard Sinestro's ship after entering the passcode. Once Cruz defeated Sinestro and took his ring, his constructs dissipated. Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Starfire, and Flash left the ship. Batgirl worked with Mera, Katana, and Harley in going after Mrs. Clayface after she stole three purses one evening. They surrounded her at a fountain in Centennial Park but Mrs. Clayface shoved Harley and Batgirl to the ground. Mera tried to help but only made Mrs. Clayface bigger with water. She knocked Katana into the bushes then escaped into the sewers. Batgirl adopted a dog named Ace. He proved to be smart, obedient, serious, and had a matching fashion sense. Supergirl and Batgirl set up a playdate for their dogs in Centennial Park. Batgirl and Ace drove to the park in the Batcycle. She admitted she would miss him while she was at school because of Waller's No Pets Policy. Batgirl played fetch with Ace using a teddy bear.
Ace was perfect. He sat down, sat it down, and placed his left paw on its head but Krypto flew by and destroyed it. The playdate was interrupted by a report of a break-in. Batgirl leashed Ace and took him to the Bat-Bunker to wait with Krypto. Batgirl and Supergirl investigated the scene of the crime, Eclipso Jewels. Supergirl found it strange only one thing was stolen, the Sphinx Ruby, and Batgirl's scan didn't find any fingerprints. She tried her X-Ray vision but saw a mouse and was startled. She crashed into a display case and broke it. Batgirl grabbed it and noticed it was a toy mouse much like the M.O. of Catwoman but had to clue Supergirl in. They questioned Catwoman in her dorm but only found cat supplies and toys. Catwoman begged them not to tell Principal Waller since the No Pets policy was still in effect. Batgirl promised then they met with Waller at Eclipso Jewels. They reported they didn't find a perp but Waller assured them they did all they could.
Ace and Krypto arrived with a bag of stolen jewelry, including the Sphinx Ruby. Waller realized they were heroes, too, and allowed super pets on campus. Batgirl and Ace enrolled in Grodd's Super Pets class but she could only stop Ace from chasing Kitsune by firing a grapnel at his collar and tugging hard. Several supers responded to the Save the Day alarm at Centennial Park Zoo. Batgirl and Wonder Woman cornered Moth but he launched a robot red herring. The supers chased it into a cage and were trapped. The Super Pets came to their rescue. Batgirl drove around Metropolis during the lava eruptions and froze the vents with a freeze gun she dubbed Operation Cool as a Cucumber. Batgirl returned to campus and fired a grapnel at one of Trigon's boots then drove around, tying his legs together. Supergirl pushed him on his back. They declared a tied super save score. Trigon grabbed Batgirl then Supergirl as she tried to pry his hand open. Raven tried to reason with him but he wanted retribution.
Trigon declared they were bad influences on his daughter. Supergirl retorted and blasted Batgirl free with heat vision then muscled her way free. Batgirl fell towards the street but activated her glider in time then went for her Batcycle. Raven was about to cast when Batgirl arrived with a plan. Trigon and Supergirl were fooled by Raven's hologram on Batgirl's Batcycle. The real Raven created a portal and it pulled Trigon back to the Underworld. Raven credited her new friends, Supergirl and Batgirl, with helping her make her first underworld portal. Trigon admitted she mastered more at Super Hero High than all those years of home school and let her stay. Batgirl used the Batcycle for her vehicle assignment and was passed by Doc Magnus. She used it to teach Barda how to drive but she couldn't balance and tipped over with it.
Initially, Supergirl asked Batgirl to watch Krypto while she went to Oa for Jessica Cruz' induction ceremony on Oa. Supergirl changed her mind after Ace gave Batgirl the slip. While Batgirl looked for him, Supergirl asked Wonder Woman. Batgirl and Ace put the finished touches on a spaceship she built in the Bat Bunker underneath Super Hero High. She was excited to get a call for reinforcements in outer space. She raised the ship up to the lawn and launched with Hawkgirl, Flash, and Bumblebee. Batgirl tracked down Wonder Woman and Krypto in space. Wonder Woman secured Krypto with the Lasso of Truth then took him aboard. Batgirl prepared to set coordinates for Earth but noticed they were on a path that would lead to Oa. Krypto started barking and put a paw on her hand. Batgirl sensed he was trying to tell them something. Wonder Woman tried to hail Supergirl on the comm link but got nothing. It was decided they would go to Oa. Batgirl input the course for Space Sector 0. They came upon the Green Lanterns and landed on Oa together.
(Novels only) Batgirl quickly garnered a reputation for being the most prepared girl in school. She also volunteered at the library and helped with digitization of print material. Doc Magnus recommended her to Alicia Chen for her reality TV show "TechTalkTV" which she ended up winning the $25,000 grand prize thanks to her popularity with the audience and viewers. She was recruited by Harley to help grow her Harley's Quintessentials web channel and HarleyGrams were invented. A 3D hologram of Harley helped with social media deliverables on a person's keyboard. Batgirl was the unwitting pawn of a teenage tech genius named Noah Kuttler. As part of grand scheme to go down in history as a hero, Kuttler spied on Batgirl through a baby bat she raised and befriended her on TechTalkTV. Batgirl asked him for help with completing code for HarleyGrams. He planted a transformative virus into the code.
Batgirl was branded a criminal. Kuttler planned to swoop in as the hero and save the world, getting even his parents to take notice. Batgirl figured out how to reprogram the rogue HarleyGrams and restore all computers on the planet. Beast Boy helped implicate Kuttler and exonerate Batgirl by taking the form of a bat while wearing a transmitter and camera. While Batgirl and Supergirl studied, Wonder Woman called up Batgirl and asked if she or Supergirl wanted anything from the cafeteria before it closed. She quickly showed what baked goods were left. Both zeroed in on the superfood cake but there was one piece left. They raced off only to crash into each other. They laughed and agreed to split it but Harley Quinn took it for herself. Batgirl showed off her new Batjet to Supergirl and Wonder Woman but Red Tornado reminded her she couldn't fly without a license. He took Batgirl on a flyer's exam but she failed to make a proper left, execute a save the day exercise and land well. She was flunked.
