WHM 2012 Batgirl in the Comics
The first super-heroines I knew were Batgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Mera, and Black Canary. Batgirl, of course, was well-known from her television appearances on BATMANand from her Filmation cartoons. Mera was featured with her husband in Aquaman's Big Little Book, Scourge of the Seas. Supergirl was one of the MEGO
dolls action figures I had. (Although I actually switched her body with another MEGO doll, Dinah-Mite. She had a nicer looking face and long, straight blond hair than the Supergirl doll. Nicer! Does this make me weird?) And of course Wonder Woman and Black Canary were members of the Justice League, the book that got me reading obsessing over comics in the first place. I'll talk about those two JLA Women along with Hawkgirl/woman and Zatanna next week. Today, however, I want to talk about my all-time favorite...Batgirl.
