Barbara's Reign

Batman: The Killing Joke

Barbara Gordon's Demise

In 1988 DC Comics released the controversial graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke, which tells the infamous Joker's backstory. Although the novel received much acclaim and even won an Eisner Award, it also bears heavy criticism for the brutality shown toward Barbara Gordon. The Joker strips, abuses (presumably rapes), and shoots and paralyzes her, thus ending Barbara's reign as Batgirl.

Cassandra Cain

First appearing in Batman #567 (July 1999), Cassandra Cain was born and raised to be the world's greatest assassin and Ra's al Ghul's bodyguard. Her father, assassin David Cain, forced her mother to bear a child for him or face certain death. Cassandra was raised mute and illiterate with no social skills. However, she is extremely intuitive and a badass fighter. After killing a man, she sensed what he thought and felt and realized it was wrong. She ran away and eventually became Batgirl.
