Instructions:
 

After you have read Batgirl Volume 1: The Darkest Reflection, write a discussion post responding to one of the questions below. Make sure your response is detailed and includes evidence from the words and the images in the text.

  • Gail Simone did not randomly create the characters of Mirror and Gretel to be the villains in this story; they exist for a reason. Why do you think Simone created these two villains to face Barbara in her first return to being Batgirl? What connections can you make between them and Barbara? How do they enhance or expand on the themes in this story?
  • Barbara struggles with letting people get close to her. In this story, she has tense encounters with the hero Nightwing, her roommate Alysia Yeoh, her estranged mother, and even her father. Why do you think Gail Simone included this aspect of Barbara’s character? What do we learn from watching her interact with these family and friends? What do their interactions add to the story? You don’t have to discuss all of the characters she interacts with; you can choose one or two and go in depth in your analysis.

  • Barbara Gordon/Batgirl stands out on the pages of this book due to her distinctive red hair. However, when you look more closely, you will see that the way she is drawn (clothing, posture, action, facial expression) varies significantly throughout the book. Why do you think the artists Ardian Syaf and Vincente Cifuentes drew her the way they did? What does her visual portrayal tell you about her character? Why might the artists have given her such contrasting attitudes and expressions throughout the story? How do the visuals in this book impact our perception of her character and/or the story? To answer this question, you should focus on Batgirl, but you can include some comparison to the visuals of Ms. Marvel, if you feel that is relevant to your point.
  • Batgirl (like Batman and Spider-Man) is viewed with mixed feelings by other people in her community. Some praise her work, others (like Detective McKenna) see her as a danger to the public. Batgirl is one of many characters we’ve encountered in this class who shows that it is not always easy being a hero. What do you think reading Batgirl Volume 1 adds to your understanding of heroes or heroism in American media or culture?
