Haha, take your time! I haven't read SHOWCASE yet, which is the main reason why I can't put the show out yet. Hopefully, as I got it through MOC, I'll get it next month, but we shall see.

Spider-Girl wrote:The topic title is pretty self-explanatory. Would you listen to a podcast about Barbara Gordon? It would target her time as Batgirl as well as Oracle. Am I already annoying enough and you don't want to listen to any more of me? Let me know. It would be a lot of work, but I would not undertake it unless I believe that people would listen/enjoy it.


As long as you talk about the differences between the media and all of the changes to continuity of course. :wink:

I love the DC characters....but it's the continuity that prevents me from keeping up with their ongoing titles.

Poor Babs is full of some of the DC continuity stuff too, but most of it could be ignored lol.

The "Year One" mini is great, but with a few lines hear and there they pretty much retconned 80 percent of her Pre-Crisis stories.

Wow, really? I've heard she doesn't have the same age or job experience she was originally introduced with....
I'm also guessing the whole relationship between her and Bruce (in the animated series) was a MAJOR divergence right?

Well in the Silver Age she has in her mid 20's, had finished graduate school and was DR. Barbara Gordon but the DR was dropped after her the first few stories. Methinks sexism may have been involved (just guessing) and they didn't want a woman more educated than Batman.

Year One started her out younger but kept MOST of her education (saying she finished school early but I don't believe they kept graduate school). I don't want to make it sound like I'm picking on YEAR ONE or saying it wasn't a good story, merely stating the difference between the versions. I like YEAR ONE but some of the "eh guyz" foreshadowing was a little too "hit you over the head" like when Black Canary says "WELL LETS NOT MAKE THE TEAMUPS A REGULAR THING" or when Babs says "Sorry Cassandra, I'm not ORACLE!". The art was top notch though and they captured the voice of Barbara real well, little surprise since it's Dixon.

As for the Bruce/Babs thing. There was SMALL hints of it in early stories. They would sometimes pretend to be a couple or she would pretend to be falling for him but it was usually a hoax or something else. In the 60's show she was set up on a date with Bruce at one point but Babs in those early stories pretty much had eyes for Jason Bard.

Anyway don't want to drift the topic too much from Stella's podcast so if you have any more questions in general we can take it to the Dick/Babs thread.

Hey Stell, I was talking to Bertone the other night and I mentioned the Batcave Companion by Michael Eury. If you've not read it, I'd reccomend it. There's an entire chapter dedicated to the creation of Batgirl and how she was in her first few appearances.

Haha, think you may have posted in the wrong topic. I'm very sure Barbara Gordon is not starring in V, however, Elizabeth Mitchell is starring in V. I'm watching that just for her as I really like her as an actress.
