Batgirl has a long history and has evolved a lot over the years, what we see today is because of this long transformation process she went through. Today we’ve got a great infographic for you to check out today. Fun created this graphic and it shows all the versions of the character we’ve seen since she was first introduced into the DC Comics universe in 1956. It has a lot of detailed information about the Batgirl.
There have been several versions of Batgirl over the years, but the most the definitive one has been Barbara Gordon, who made her DC Comics debut on November 29, 1966 in Batman #359. While it’s been 50 years since Gordon’s debut as Batgirl, there was another Bat-girl (Betty Kane) who debuted 5 years earlier in Batman #159. Betty Kane is the niece of Kathy Kane, the original Batwoman who, coincidentally, debuted 60 years ago in 1956.
As we celebrate the 50, 55, and 60-year anniversaries of the Bat-women, we’ve put together this infographic featuring Barbara Gordon and all her different appearances over the years, from her comic debut to her TV and film roles to her current run in the DC Superhero Girls web series and various other comics. We’ve also included her run as Oracle, which originated from her controversial role in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke. Eventually, she returned to the superhero role as part of DC’s reboot in 2011.
