Thanks, dto. I don't recall ever seeing her use a magic lasso as an adult in '86 (although she clearly had one as a teenager back in '64).

And now it's on to the swingin' 60s ... specifically, the year 1964, where the vivacious Barbara Gordon (who, in Generations continuity, is the granddaughter of Gotham City's venerable hard-nosed police commissioner) leads a double-life as both a congresswoman and the crimefighting partner (not to mention the main squeeze) of Dick Grayson as Batman. Here's Batgirl 1964.

Very nice. I believe she's "Oracle" now for Batman and friends right? After Joker shot and paralysed her in an attempt to try and drive the commisioner insane. Cool thread.

Megatron, Barbara becoming Oracle after "A Killing Joke" is in current mainstream DC continuity.  (And I once read on another message board that originally Bab's wound WASN'T supposed to leave her a permanent cripple, but DC never followed up and left her in that wheelchair.  Think Oracle can now sue DC for medical/editorial neglect and malpractice?)   :wink:

Bill 9000's depiction is an "Imaginary Story" Batgirl from John Byrne's "Superman/Batman: Generations" series, tracing the Kent and Wayne families as if Superman and Batman debuted in the 1930s like their original publication dates, and then aged over the decades accordingly. (Bruce needed a Lazarus Pit to keep up with Clark.)   :wink:  

I like this picture, especially Batgirl's hair and the gold utility pouch instead of the original red purse with the bat-symbol.  Great work, Bill 9000!

Thanks, guys. I'm glad you like my take on Generations Babs.  Cheesy

That's fantastic!

If you're taking requests, I'd like to put in a bid for an image of Nightwing...for obvious reasons. :-)
