Superhero University – Batgirl of Burnside – Session 5 and 5.5: This Story Beat Threw Off Our Algorithm and Double Secret Origin Probation

Join Joshua Unruh, professional storyteller and superhero scholar, as he takes you through the latest version of Barbara Gordon as Batgirl! Join in as Joshua finally runs into a couple of chapters of this story that are a little wobbly in a narrative sense and argues the merits of fair play mysteries! Barbara Gordon has hit rock bottom and fears she is literally her own worst enemy. And she’s right…kinda.

To follow along, read the fifth and sixth chapters of Batgirl vol 1: Batgirl of Burnside.
