This Fall the original Batgirl returns, more than 2 decades after she was crippled by the Joker in Batman: The Killing Joke, but for how long?

Bane has always prided himself in being the first and only man to break the Bat but after some soul searching he realizes “the Bat broke Bane.” While Bane is surrounded by broken men destined for Hell, Batman is surrounded by loved ones. The only way to truly break Batman is by “breaking everyone he loves.” In Secret Six #35, Bane makes a list of targets including: Robin, Red Robin, Huntress, and Batgirl! Granted, he probably means Stephanie Brown, the current Batgirl, but that could easily change. When Bane’s teammate, Catman, threatens to walk unless Huntress is taken off the list, Bane simply replaces her with Commissioner Gordon explaining “It isn’t vital who, as long as he cares.”

Of course crippling Barbara Gordon twice is about as likely DC Comics rebooting AND renumbering their entire line…
