View Full Version : Batman/Batgirl
Is the new Batfig from the preview a Batman or Batgirl?
A new Batgirl.
She came about in the "No Mans Land" storyline
SWEET! I just thought it was some wierd batman I had never seen.
she looks GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I MUST HAVE HER! she is one of my favorite new characters in DC. I wonder what her stats are? close combat expert? leap climb? she has the batman team ability she should be able to dish out as much damage as batman himself. what would actualy be fun to see is her experienced clix be the weaker of the 3 to show when she learned to talk and lost some of her fighting ability for a while.
Is this one the mute girl who was trained as a jedi/ninja?
edit: Can someone tell me her story, please?
She'll undoubtedly be very similar to the U Catwoman. Leap/Climb, Super Senses, Close Combat Expert and the Batman Team ability (they might give her range, though she prefers to go in hand to hand).
Cassandra Cain was raised by a master assassin named David Cain. He theorized that if a child never learned verbal language, they would learn to interpret body movement as language. Cassandra was his experiment to test this theory, and on that level, she was a success. At 9 years old she was deadly.
On her first hit as an assassin, however, she felt intense remorse at having killed somebody and ran away from Cain. Eventually she was found by Oracle and Batman when she was 17 and barely able to speak three words.
She became the new Batgirl, and eventually started to learn more language, but found that her ability to read body language (Super Senses) was hampered by her increasing vocabulary.
Lady Shiva stepped in and offered to help Batgirl get her edge back, but the price was that Batgirl would fight her in a duel to the death in a year's time.
That time came and Shiva killed Batgirl, but then restored her to life with some super martial arts technique she had planned all along. The newly alive Batgirl fought Shiva again and won, but didn't kill Shiva.
Batgirl is probably the number one pure martial artist in the DC Universe right now. She's not the detective that Batman is, or the computer expert that Oracle is. She's a bit naive and inexperienced at dealing with deceptive and tricky people, but she's number one when it comes to butt-kicking.
She can speak pretty well now, but has regained her ability to read body language with her newfound verbal skills. She doesn't speak much, though, generally using as few words as necessary.
she was raised as an assasin by cain. from the age of 5 or so he taught her to be a perfect killing weapon. She never learned to speak more than a few words and instead learned body language as her form of communication. As a result she could tell what her opponent could do before they did it....(high defence with supersences) she was taken in by barbara gordon, accepted by batman. She is the pure beatstick of the batman family. Not realy an outwit or perplex type. she basically sneaks up on you(batman team ability) can go anywhere (leap climb) drop in on you to either knock out bad guys(incapacitate) or just kick your a** (close combat expert). Basically she should be on the same level as vet batman or nightwing. I actually think that she is a better fighter than nightwing. I basically hope that she is a vet batman with the batman team ability with no outwit, but close combat all the way down the dial combined with supersences down the dial. When I made a mod of her the closest dial I saw was the unique catwoman.
