Computers, Joker, and Memes: 41 st:
Yesterday in our session "50 Tales for 50 Years: A Celebration of Barbara Gordon" we covered Alan Moore's one shot graphic novel "Batman: The Killing Joke". One of the reasons this comic is so memorable is the fact that the Joker shoots Barbara Gordon, unknowing to him Batgirl, ultimately paralyzingly her from the waist down. At the time, even Moore himself believed the acts of Joker shooting and undressing Barbara was extreme for comic books. In recent news, Bolland's original art illustrated photos of a completely naked Barbara, with the exposure of her breasts, giving critics the illusion that Joker sexually assaulted her as well. In years to come, Barbara would be listed in Gail Simone's "Women in Refrigerators" list, one that has important female characters to superheroes either injured or killed as a plot device; Barbara's tragedy was not the main storyline, but a pawn in the grand scheme of Joker's origin and the defining of insanity between him and Batman. Many saw her paralysis negatively when the book was published in March 1988. Even creators such as Alex Ross and Paul Dini wanting to have a story where she is cured by a Lazarus Pit in the later future. However, the vulgarity in these panels made Barbara Gordon the metaphorical phoenix of DC; to assure she would not end up in complete obscurity, creators John Ostrander and Kim Yale gave Barbara a new persona, the genius computer hacker Oracle, who became one of the most important figures for heroes in the DC Universe until The New 52 reboot in late 2011 (Rafael Albuquerque's cancelled variant cover to 2015's Batgirl 41 presented). We will have more tales of Barbara in her role as Oracle as we continue our retrospect. βœŒπŸΌοΈπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ“–πŸŽ¨πŸŽ‰
