Happy Birthday Barbara Gordon!

On November 29th, 1966 a new hero added her name to the roster of legendary characters within the DC Universe, and her name is Barbara Gordon.

But you might know her from a different moniker:

BATGIRL

barbara-gordon_oracle

or perhaps ORACLE

Created by Batman 66 TV series executive producer William Dozier along with then DC Comics editor Julius Schwartz, BG made her million dollar debut in the pages of Detective Comics #359 and was vividly brought to life on the page by artist Carmine Infantino and writer Gardener Fox.



Over the five plus decades that my gurrrlll has been in action she’s seen triumph, tragedy, and a plethora of challenges that has transformed her into one of the world’s finest supers ever to appear within the comics domain.

Put your heart and your soul in it
Ain’t nothing, ain’t nothing, ain’t nothing
Now put your heart and your soul in it :notes:

Happy B-Day BG! At fifty-five you’ve never looked better! I love you sooo much with every bit of my heart, and I always and forever will.

Happy birthday to Barbara Gordon, better known as Batgirl! This is how I first encountered her, way back when…


While others have played the role, it’s still Yvonne Craig I see when I picture Babs in my head!

The first time I ever saw her was on TV, afternoon cartoons hour when I was a tiny kiddo in the early 80s:

I was so amazed and excited by this amazing flourish of purple and gold fantasticness. :star_struck:

Fast forward to 1989 and this moment of reacquaintance with the one who would very soon afterwards become my most fave superhero of all time:
