Barbara Gail Gordon's New Batgirl Costume In Nightwing #84 (Spoilers)

DC Comics is launching a new Batgirls comic book starring Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown as the new Batgirls of Gotham. And with Barbara Gordon returning to her Oracle role, in Batman, Nightwing, and Batman: Urban Legends series, tracking, advising, and guiding the Batpeople of Gotham City, some folk have been miffed that Barbara Gordon won't be out on the streets herself as Batgirl. Well, that looks to change this Tuesday. Bleeding Cool gets the word that Barbara Gail Gordon (her full name on the Batwoman TV show and coming to a comic book near you very soon, I am sure) will be getting a brand new Batgirl suit. And we are to look for its debut in Nightwing #84 – also out on Tuesday, courtesy of Tom Taylor and Robbi Rodriguez. Here's what was teased.

(W) Tom Taylor (A) Robbi Rodriguez (CA) Bruno Redondo
When the Bat-Family receives misleading information and incorrect directions from Oracle, ones Babs didn't send herself, they realize Oracle's system has been hacked! But who is powerful enough to break into Oracle's own super-secure network? And what personal information is now at risk? Not only that, this mysterious Anti-Oracle is taking advantage of Gotham City's state of fear and has bombarded the city with falsities, spreading even more fear. With the Bat-Team's comms unreliable, Nightwing heads to Gotham to find the source of Anti-Oracle's transmissions.
