Okay, I've tried to keep quiet on this, but the more fan art I see based on this insanity, the harder it's become until I simply can't remain silent anymore.
Why is everyone accepting this new BS from DC Comics? Is there anyone out there that has not heard of this madness? No, I'm not talking about 'New 52'- although that was bad enough. No, I'm talking about how they're ruining Batgirl:
This character has been around since the 1960's- 1967 in fact. She's always been portrayed as a strong, intelligent character. Even when she was confined to a wheelchair, she was one of the better stand-out characters DC had.
Then came the Nightmare they call 'New 52'. Instead of coming up with a cure that would get her out of the chair and work within the world of Batman and his family, they pull a South Africa experimental clinic out of left field.
Now, as if that's bad not enough, they've decided to trash the character even more.
Why is everyone taking this so damn calmly? Isn't there anyone in Fandom- or the offices at DC-with the backbone to stand up and say "This is wrong! You're trashing a character that's lasted for 47 years! If you truly despise her that much, why don't you simply kill her off and be done with it?"
There's nothing great or awesome about this attempted make-over. It makes her look like a damn 12 year old playing dress-up. "I want to be Batgirl when I grow up!"
PLEASE, some one buy DC out and clean house!
There was nothing wrong with the pre-52 universe. DC was just too damn lazy to bring in fresh writers that knew what they were doing.
