Zero Year Barbara Gordon by AlexGarner Zero Year Barbara Gordon by AlexGarner
My design for a pre-Batgirl Barbara Gordon. Basically she raided Dad's closet and donned a bunch of SWAT gear. At least that was my thought behind it. Combined with the black gear, the yellow shirt is a nod to the future Batgirl color scheme.

I dig the look, though the heavy addition of pouches does feel a tad... 90s. I mean what is she keeping in all those pouches? Smoke bomb? Snacks? Or are they for collecting evidence?

Also, she looks like April O'Neil right? I can't be the only one who's seeing this.

As stated in the description, she's wearing SWAT gear she found from her dad, Commissioner Gordon; it's a makeshift survivalist outfit and SWAT gear generally has many pouches and pockets.

As far as the April O'Neil comparison goes, that's entirely coincidental. The bob hairstyle was the writer's idea (which I like) and Barbara has natural red hair. My editor and I were much more concerned with her being confused with Frank Miller's Robin/Kelly character.

Too tall to be Kelly. Maybe Kelly at twenty-five, but I don't see there being too much confusion with the current character in Batman and Robin (especially without the glasses).

So is that a no on the snacks? Because a mini bottle of Gatorade might come in handy between incapacitating pimps and drug dealers. Or maybe a candy bar, a little reward after a long night.
