|Appearances:||Birds of Prey|
Once Batman's protegé, Batgirl, Barbara was caught in the crossfire in the war between Batman and The Joker. Now she fights a crime a different way as Oracle, master of the cyber realm and trainer to heroes. Taking in Helena Kyle as a child after her mother was murdered, Barbara trained Helena to become New Gotham's protector. Quinzel discovered Barbara's dual identity, after manipulating Helena into revealing all her secrets. Occupying Barbara's base of operations, the Gotham Clocktower, Quinzel killed Barbara's boyfriend, Wade Brixton. In battle, Barbara managed to overpower Quinzel and attempted to exact revenge by killing her, but was brought back to her senses by Helena.
Behind the scenesEdit
Barbara is played by American actress, Dina Meyer. Instead of the manual wheelchair Oracle uses in the comics, she uses an electric-powered wheelchair in the series. The chair was once upgraded by Barbara to be controlled by her hands via special center, rather than using the joystick. Rather than being a librarian or a computer expert, Oracle in this series is a high-school English teacher.
- The Batgirl costume used in this show is the same costume used by Alicia Silverstone in Batman & Robin, only repainted.
