Being the adopted daughter of Police Commissioner James Gordon, Barbara Gordon grew up in a household filled with police officers and their stories. When she was older, Barbara decided that she wanted to join the Gotham City Police Department and follow in her father's footsteps, but he wouldn't allow it. One night, at a Masquerade Ball, Barbara wore a homemade female “Batman” costume as a jive against her father and ended up stopping a planned kidnapping on millionaire Bruce Wayne by Killer Moth, which began her career as Batgirl. At first, her identity was a secret to both Batman and Robin (Dick Grayson), but Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce’s butler, had discovered her secret after both were kidnapped by The Penguin. After Batman deduced her identity and reached out to her to be a partner of his, Robin became jealous and Batgirl replaced him as Batman’s partner for some time.
She has recently received an injury from Harley Quinn. Batman has ordered her to stay off this case to keep her from getting hurt further. Still determined to help, Barbara has donned the codename “Oracle” and uses the bat-computer to act as the information broker to the Batman-family and Justice League members dealing with the defeat of Superman and Lex Luthor uniting the villains of Gotham.
