Subtitle: --
Writer(s): Kelley Puckett
Artists(s): Damion Scott, John Lowe
Storyline: After taking on that entire government agency without her costume, everyone was looking for Batgirl. She had no identity to compromise - except her future one. The man she saved was killed. Batman took her to the men who killed him, and she took them out. Batman gave her her own cave, telling her she couldn't stay with Oracle anymore (due to it possibly compromising Barbara's identity).


notes

  • Batgirl encountered Shiva for the first time.
  • Batman gave Cassandra one of his satellite caves so she would not compromise Barbara Gordon's identity.
