Batgirl, or Barbara Gordon, is the second Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC character, released by NetherRealm Studios as part of the fighting video game they have developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U, following Lobo.
Batgirl is a free-to-play DLC character for those who have purchased the Injustice: Gods Among Us season pass, or she can be purchased for $4.99 by all fans who wish to add her to the roster.
Batgirl debuted as a DC Comics character in Detective Comics #359, in 1967, and she was created by Gardner Fox, and Carmine Infantino.
She is the daughter of Commissioner Gordon, and one of Batman’s biggest fans. In fact, her admiration for the Dark Knight, and because she was stopped by her father to join the force, helped Barbara Gordon decide to become Batgirl.
Unfortunately, in Batgirl Special No. 1, Barbara is shot by The Joker and she ended up in a wheelchair when a bullet penetrated her spinal cord.
Her skills as a computer hacker; however, weren’t affected, and she became The Oracle continuing to help Batman. In Injustice: Gods Among Us, the video game, Batgirl returns after the period she spent being paralyzed, a period during which, Superman wasn’t able to find and recruit her.
But when the Man Of Steel killed her father, Batgirl decided to return to the streets where she eventually finds Superman and ends his reign.
In the video game, Batgirl is voiced by Kimberly Brooks. When she fights Nightwing players can hear her calling him “babe”, since they had a relationship in the comics.
