Heroine Overview

So Batman can't help me? Fine. In that case... let's see what Batgirl can do!
~ Batgirl's most famous quote

Barbara Gordon is a supporting protagonist in Batman: The Animated Series and the tritagonist of its sequel The New Batman Adventures. She is also the overall main protagonist of the Gotham Girls spin-off series, and serves as the supporting protagonist of Batman Beyond.

Barbara is the daughter of Gotham City Police Commissioner James GOrdan, and, as Batgirl, Batman's crimefighting partner and protegé. Later in life, she follows in her father's footsteps by becoming the Commissioner of the Gotham Police Department.

She is voiced by Melissa Gilbert in Batman: The Animated Series, by Tara Strong - who also portrayed Paz Ortega Andrade in the Metal Gear Solid video game series, Rikku in the Final Fantasy video game series, Krista Sparks in Twisted Metal: Head On, Talwyn Apogee in Ratchet & Clank, Juliet Starling in Lollipop Chainsaw, Twilight Sparkle in My Little Ponies: Friendship is Magic, the title character in Unikitty, Dil Pickles in Rugrats and All Grown Up!, Ben Tennyson in Ben 10, Timmy Turner and Poof in Fairly OddParents, Truffles in Chowder, Daizy in Wow Wow Wubbzy, and Princess Clara in Drawn Together - The New Batman Adventures, and by Stockard Channing in the first season of Batman Beyond before being replaced by Angie Harmon.

Personality


Appearance

Barbara is a teenage girl who has a slender build. She also has light skin complexion, blue eyes and orange hair. As Batgirl, she wears a blue and gray superhero outfit that is similar to Batman.

History

Barbara was a college student at the time when she first met Batman. During a vacation visit to Gotham, Barbara's father was abducted and replaced by an android replicant built by the super-computer H.A.R.D.A.C.. Desperate for help, Barbara used the Bat-Signal to request for Batman's help in finding her father. Although Batman agreed to investigate, he told her to stay safely away. Barbara didn't heed Batman's advice and investigated on her own, eventually locating H.A.R.D.A.C. and helping Batman beat the computer along with the evil android duplicants. After the successful mission, Barbara started enjoying the thrills of crime-fighting.

A while later, Commissioner Gordon was framed for taking bribes from crime lord Rupert Thorne and when she asked Batman's help, he agreed although not to the extent she had expected. With this in mind, Barbara came up with a Batsuit version of her own and went out as Batgirl. Thanks to her assistance, Commissioner Gordon's name was cleared and Two-Face was exposed as the mastermind behind the frame-up. Due to this circumstances, Batman and Robin decided to allow Batgirl to continue her crime-fighting activities, which were also sanctioned by her oblivious father, Commissioner Gordon.

Trivia

  • Batgirl's relationship with Harley Quinn kind of mirrors that of Batman and the Joker; as they both hate others each greatly and view each other as their archenemy. Plus Batgirl openly views Harley as both her arch-nemesis and foil.
  • In Batman: The Animated Series, her Batgirl costume is a gray bodysuit with blue gloves, boots, cape and cowl, and a gold bat-symbol and belt, resembling Batman's costume, but in The New Batman Adventures, her Batgirl costume is a black bodysuit with gold gloves, boots, bat-symbol and belt, and her cape and cowl are still blue, but the inside of her cape is yellow.
