  1. Yeah, this was definitely the scene that bothered me the most (though there were several). Still need to give this another watch to try and fully understand it. Would you be interested in sharing your posts on Moviepilot.com? I think a lot of our fans would commiserate with what you have to say!

  2. …Except that DC has been treating KJ as canonnical for MANY years now! Barbara was crippled and took the “Oracle” role for years, illustrating that even the disabled can still be “super”. Then Nu52 happened and she magically recovered lol.

    1. In #49 Batgirl is trying to defeat a villain named Fugue, who has attempted (and succeeded) to mess with Bab’s mind and insert fake memories. After Frankie helps set things right, the two enter into a chase through Barbara’s mind. It is here that we start to see some of the nightmares and alternate memories that Fugue has planted, and one of those features Brian Boland’s iconic Joker with the text “Smile” and another picture on the right with the gun that shot her. It is implied that this is a false memory, but is never actually confirmed as such.
