Storyline: Oracle accounts her first meeting with the Joker to Batgirl. Feeling she had something to prove to the team, Batgirl broke Joker out of Arkham so that she could defeat him. She had a tough time - she couldn't understand his body language, and he almost took her down. In the end, with Batman and Black Canary watching, Batgirl defeated him and took him back to Arkham. Batman and Oracle were not impressed with the whole situation.
