Biography[edit | edit source]

Silver Age (Earth-One)[edit | edit source]

Barbara Gordon was born to James and Thelma Gordon (her place of birth is unverified).  As a little girl, Barbara loved heroes, even having an adventure with the teenaged Superboy when she visited Smallville.  The adventure temporarily granted her powers and it taught her that wishing for powers isn't enough and that she had to work hard and develop her skills.

Modern Age (Post-Crisis)[edit | edit source]

After The Joker shot her near the spine, she was paralyzed for 3 years working as Oracle, but then managed to walk and eventually became Batgirl again.
