There’s no denying that I was thrilled when the Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC was originally announced for Batman: Arkham Knight, even though I wasn’t sure of the details I had my suspicions and that was enough to get me excited. Barbara Gordon has been with us throughout the Arkham franchise, in Arkham Origins WB Games Montreal introduced us to a young and rebellious Barbara that believed in the Batman and desperately wanted to help. Of course in Rocksteady’s trilogy she’s been Batman’s invaluable ally known as Oracle, utilizing her advanced computer skills to provide Batman with the real time information and data analysis needed to best approach and overcome any situation.
However we’ve never had an opportunity to see Barbara as she was before the events that unfolded in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke, when she was paralyzed from the waist down by the Joker. Somewhere in between the Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum continuity there existed a time when Barbara Gordon was Batgirl. This is why I was excited, the idea that we’d finally get an opportunity to see Barbara’s strength and determination portrayed in a different light within the Arkhamverse.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve been provided new details regarding the story we’ll be receiving in the “Batgirl: A Matter of Family” DLC. We’ll see our heroine team up with Robin to save her father, Commissioner Gordon, who’s been kidnapped by the Joker.
