Barbara Gordon as Oracle in Four Pages From Batman #100 (Preview)

We have a sneak peek ahead at four pages from the upcoming Batman #100, the conclusion to The Joker War and – once upon a time – would have been Batman and the Batfamily's last hurrah before a reboot/relaunch of a very different Batman for 5G. But that was then. In Batgirl we saw Barbara Gordon lose the use of her legs, again, partially due to the Joker and partially her taking away his power over her. That still seems to be the case in Batman #100 as Barbara Gordon, rather than Batgirl, performs her role as Oracle, as Batwing, Batwoman, Nightwing, Red Hood and more take to the streets of Gotham – as well as the new character Clownhunter in this double-page spread.
