Oracle Returns in July's Batgirl #37 for Year of the Villain

Once upon, the Joker shot Barbara Gordan, paralyzing here. But the then-former Batgirl found a new role as Oracle, coordinating the operations of the Bat-family and becoming more formidable from behind her command center than even when she wore the cowl. But Barbara Gordon returned to being Batgirl with DC's Nu52 relaunch, part of an effort by DC to, for some reason, stomp on the hopes and dreams of fans of Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain, as DC considered them "toxic" characters.

Then there was a new Oracle, a hacker named Gus, but now he's dead.

Except, now there's a new new Oracle, it seems, as evidenced by DC's solicit for Batgirl #37. And this Oracle is Batgirl's "worst nightmare." Just in time for Year of the Villain, and with a variant to match.

Check out the solicit below, and DC's full solicits here.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
