The World's Finest Presents



Voiced By: Danielle Judovits
First Appearance: "Batgirl Begins, Part 1"
Position: Crime Fighter; Daughter of Comm. Gordon

Bio (Official): Batgirl – known as Barbara Gordon – the teenage daughter of Gotham's Commissioner Gordon, is a strong-willed, stubborn teen with an ironic wit. Inspired by her first contact with The Batman, she dons the cape and cowl to become Batgirl.

Biography: Barbara Gordon, daughter of police Commissioner James Gordon, is an excellent gymnast; despite her not being that interested in it anymore, it’s something her father wants her to keep doing.

While she isn’t as interested in gymnastics, she is interested in police detective work, which worries her father. In addition to that, Barbara’s been hanging around with Pamela Isely, a student with a juvenile detention record and something James Gordon doesn’t like.

During a battle with temblor, Barbara sees The Batman in action; after this, the seed to become Batgirl (or “Batwoman”, as she demands to be called) is planted. After a battle with The Batman and saving her father, The Batman decides not to tell Gordon that his daughter is Batgirl. That first adventure, Batgirl says, is "only the beginning."

Batman finally let Barbara in on his secret after getting a second partner, Robin. Deciding they needed team work training and to learn to trust one another more, the trio shares their secret identities (although Batgirl is reluctant to give up hers, Batman does it for her) and begins training.
