They should have just made her a girl Robin.
With Stephanie Brown, aka Nightwing, existing on Earth-Smallville now I wonder when DC will give this Earth an official number for the 52 existing parallel Earths.
Batgirl, Day Men, Inhumanity, JLB, Letter 44, Powerpuff Girls, Rocket Girl, Swamp Thing, Ultimates, Ult. Spider-Man
Legenderry, Tiny Titans, Tomb Raider
Not knocking it at all, since it worked for the context, but I think that's probably why they were more likely to have her be Nightwing than Robin.
The nightwing thing might be a bonus. It might mean she is separable from Batman. I doubt they would have the dark knight appearing too much in the smallville, but maybe Steph can be a reoccurring character in this book.
Anyone have any theories on where Steph is? I really enjoyed her adventures on Batgirl, and right now, I'm thinking she's just some random innocent bystander in Gotham...
For the love...
Smallville. Season 11. Writeen by the same guy who did Steph book. She's Nightwing.
We're done here.
The Courier: I'll wear your head like you wear that dog's.
Vulpes: Legion! We have a problem!
With Cass and Wendy on an epic, globe-trotting adventure bigger than anything anyone else in the Batfam is doing combined.
At least in my imagination...
Hanging out with Carmen Sandiego.
"We must move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, TWIRLING towards freedom!"
In my mind, it's like this:
Steph was Batgirl, then gave the mantle back to Babs when she recovered from her injuries. After doing so, she took up being Spoiler again, albeit with an updated and improved mask. Seeing that Gotham was pretty well protected as is, she decided to join Cass in China to help the people there as representatives of Batman, Incorporated. Maybe Wendy went with them.
That's my rationalization for Steph's absence.
