Stephanie Brown. Formerly a variable. A loose end. A liability. As Spoiler, Brown’s skill was perpetually outweighed by her need to both please…and obsess. Thought I’m tempted to say I misjudged her, that isn’t the case. Who she was just so happens to no longer be who she is. Reminding me of the original Batgirl in more ways than one… Brown’s now a wild card in the best of ways. As the only low-profile member of the family team organization, Stephanie has an invisibility the rest of us do not have the luxury of possessing. Like the others, Brown has shown growth in my absence. Unlike the others, my return may have the least impact on her operation—one not born of fear, but of hope for a brighter tomorrow. Who knows—maybe there’s room for hope in Gotham, after all.
