About this deal

Lanterns–the Green Lantern Corps come to the small screen, in a show that’s "very much in the vein of True Detective," according to Gunn. As the years went on, however, Barbara found her role as Batgirl less and less fulfilling, and she eventually more or less retired. That's when The Joker showed up at her house, shooting and paralyzing her and when he kidnapped her Uncle Jim. Batman rescued Jim Gordon, but 19-year-old Barbara Gordon's career as a crime fighter was over. She spent a month in a deep depression.

In most continuities, Barbara is the daughter of James Gordon, the Commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department and longtime ally of Batman. She also has brothers Anthony and James Jr.. During the Post-Crisis continuities, Barbara was reimagined as James' niece, her actual father being his brother Roger and her mother being a woman named Thelma. This was due to the then-recent creation of Barbara Eileen Gordon and retrofit the name descrepancy into continuity. However, some issues imply that she was conceived in an affair between James and Thelma. [1] Following DC's second Flashpoint event, Barbara was the daughter of Barbara Eileen, thus named after her mother much akin to J.J. Gordon. Soon after Cassandra becomes Wayne's legal daughter, Batman disappears during the events of Batman R.I.P. As a result of his disappearance the Outsiders have been left in disarray with the loss of their leader. Batgirl, believing that Batman brought her in as a contingency, takes command of the team, while they attempt to locate Batman. During his absence, the rivalry that began between Nightwing and Batgirl reached its climax, leading to a fight between the pair. Alfred however arrived and broke up the argument, reminding them both that Gotham needed both of them to keep things together. Following this, Nightwing and Batgirl have at last appeared to have put aside their differences.

After the Joker War, Barbara retires as Batgirl and adopts the Oracle persona once again. With Alfred killed by Bane, she takes over as Batman's main support and helps investigate criminals. Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow– Superman’s cousin is "much more hard-core and not the Supergirl we’re used to," promises Gunn. After spending the next nine years homeless, beating herself up mentally over what she'd done, Cassandra came to be one of Oracle's agents in the No Man's Land Gotham City. After proving herself by saving Commissioner Gordon's life, she was given the Batgirl costume with the approval of both Batman and Oracle. She became Barbara's ward.

In 1997, a new animated Batman series aired, continuing where the last left off. This time, Barbara as Batgirl is a key player, acting alongside Batman, Nightwing, and a new Robin as they patrol the streets of Gotham. She also makes an appearance in the companion film to this series, Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman. She is voiced by Tara Strong.David Fear of Rolling Stone referred to the film as a "long-awaited masterpiece" and "series highlight", and compared Midthunder's character favorably to Ellen Ripley of the Alien films. [55] Andrew Webster of The Verge admired "how patient it is", adding: "what makes Prey work is its simplicity. It never strays from its concept, instead slowly building up the tension before reaching a very exciting battle." [56] Belen Edwards of Mashable called it "intimate and character-driven, with more than enough action to satisfy the most die-hard Predator fans ... even if you've never watched a Predator movie, chances are you'll love Prey. It's just that good." [57] Prey is the second feature film from director Dan Trachtenberg (left) after 10 Cloverfield Lane. It stars Amber Midthunder (right) in the lead role as Naru. Reluctant to fulfill his new responsibilities to the task force, Gordon secretly withholds the complete police records from Strange. Gordon also recruits Cort to work under him, believing that the gung-ho sergeant is ill-equipped to keep up with the Dark Knight. However, Cort proves that Gordon underestimated his determination to rid Gotham of Batman by recruiting a band of like-minded officers to join him on the task force, without Gordon's permission. Cort and his men find Batman at The Fish's hideout, in the midst of apprehending the drug peddler. They immediately open fire on Batman, causing him to flee and letting The Fish escape.
