Listen, unless you want some girl in a wheelchair to smack you around a bit, you're going to have to let the "It's all my fault" thing go.
~ Oracle

Oracle is the alter-ego of Barbara Gordon, formerly known as Batman sidekick Batgirl until the Joker crippled her during the Killing Joke story. Paraplegic and confined to a wheelchair, she begins using technology and computers to help other super-heroes by operating a worldwide communications network. This provides up-to-the-minute espionage and intel, as well as coordination and organization. In addition to her involvement with the Batman Family, she is also a member of the Birds of Prey, Justice League, Suicide Squad and Batman Incorporated.

After the events of Flashpoint, Barbara eventually regained the use of her legs and became Batgirl once more. However, this allowed a new Oracle named Gus Yale to take her place. Gus was a big fan of Barbara's work and became the Oracle to sell information on various crime families in Gotham City. He soon gained membership to the Birds of Prey and continued to provide them with intel during their missions until he was brutally tortured to death by Burnrate.

Eventually Barbara Gordon returned to using the Oracle identity after the apparent suicide of her brother James Gordon, Jr and assisted the Bat-Family in the final Batman issue of the Joker War arc.
