It's not just Poison Ivy who is getting all the attention in today's Batman comic book titles from DC Comics. The Anti-Oracle, now known as The Seer, is continuing to throw a spanner in the works for both the Batpeople and the Magistrate after posing as the Oracle network. Nightwing #85 forces Barbara Gordon to put the word out that Oracle is no longer to be trusted.
Which doesn't go down well with The Seer, presenting herself as some high shoulder-padded overlord.
While The Seer gets into the heads of the other Batgirls in Batman #118, also out today.
In Nightwing #85, Barbara Gordon does her best to get a real look at The Seer…
Though in Batman #118 we get an Empire Strikes Back style revelation.
No, of course not. Though the Seer does seem to know a lot. And that may be all Barbara Gordon's fault.
When you build a system like The Oracle, it matters not how noble your own intentions are…
…but more the intentions of those who will follow you.
The Seer is all on your Barbara Gordon. Whoever she turns out to be…
