This one is technically Max's choice but I'm stepping up to the plate because he still hasn't learnt how to correlate his UK clock with our Australian clock. And I know Ben likes to get his posts up in a timely fashion on Mondays so I'm giving him lead in time.
The Batgirl of choice here is Stephenie Brown. I don't know why Max chose her specifically so I'll give you my rundown, as a person who just doesn't know a lot about the DCU.
I looked up Stephanie Brown because I had no idea who she was. Hell, I was shocked to find out how many Batgirls there had been, no less how many identities Brown herself had held. The Spoiler (sounds like she just went online and ruined people's days), and a female Robin, and now Batgirl. For a bird not even twenty years in publication she's been passed around like a bag of chips (or 'crisps' as I like to think Max would say). I generally don't have high hopes for a character who just hasn't landed in a niche of their own. It's worrying.
I didn't even read her whole bio. Again, for twenty years it didn't feel like the bio was elaborating on all her awesome tales but rather just getting her continuity straight. I don't like that. I'm not sure if I like this character or not, I guess you'll find out when you read my script, maybe I get it completely wrong...whenever I write a DC character on here I get worried because I just don't know. I know not much of what I wrote needed her laboriously long bio to make sense.
This is probably the first negative Why...? post we've ever had on here. Sorry. I'm sure Max could have done a much better job. Maybe he will, on his site.
For now, enjoy Batgirl (Stephanie Brown) week. I'm sure, like many of the female characters on here, we'll beat the crap out of her and generally demean her. I know I will.
