|[List of appearances]|
Batgirl, or Barbara Gordon, is a superhero and ally of Batman and Robin in LEGO Batman: The Videogame and reappears in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes in June 2012. She was released physically for the first time in 50003 Batman as a microfigure in 2013, and was later featured as a minifigure in 2014. Batgirl/Barbara Gordon is voiced by Rosario Dawson in The LEGO Batman Movie.
Description[edit | edit source]
Minifigure[edit | edit source]
Batgirl has a new cowl mould that combines the cowl and her flowing red hair. She has two expressions, happy and angry. Her torso, arms, hips and legs are all black, while her hands are pearl gold. Her torso is printed with her bat symbol, utility belt, and purple lines depicting the plates of her armour. Her utility belt and suit design continues onto her back. She is printed with feminine curves. She comes with a bright purple version of Batman's cape and a Batarang.
Microfigure[edit | edit source]
She would have been yellow, with her white-eyed cowl being printed on her head. The bottom half of her face is also printed on in light nougat, with red lips and white teeth in a smug expression. The torso is printed with her black costume, muscles, feminine curves and a yellow bat symbol across her chest. Her legs at the top are black and have a yellow belt with a bat symbol in the middle. Her feet are unprinted, leaving them yellow.
Video game variants[edit | edit source]
Batgirl makes her first appearance as a LEGO figure in LEGO Batman: The Videogame where her default appearance is based on Batman: The Animated Series, featuring a colourscheme of blue, yellow, and and cartoony eyes in the style of the show. It should be noted, however, that that show depicted Batgirl with blue gloves and cape, not the yellow in the game.
Batgirl only appears in one variant, but is able to switch into four super suits:
- A heat suit allows interaction with red hot objects
- A glide suit for spanning across gaps
- A sonic suit for shattering glass
- A demolition suit for dropping bombs and exploding silver objects
All versions, including Batgirl's default costume, can also throw batarangs at targets and use grappling hooks. Batgirl's civilian identity is also playable on portable versions of the game. See Barbara Gordon for more.
Batgirl returns for both LEGO Batman 2 and 3. In these games, she can no longer use super suits, but retains the batarang and grapple abilities; portable versions of LEGO Batman 2 also allow her to hack computer terminals and perform acrobatics. Both of these games feature character models based on Batgirl's costume in The New 52. LEGO Batman 2, being released two years before Batgirl's debut as a real minifigure, features some differences from the official figure, notably a moulded chinstrap, a brighter cape, blue highlights, printed boots, and yellow as a secondary colour instead of gold. LEGO Batman 3 updates Batgirl to match her set appearance in 76013 Batman: The Joker Steam Roller. A variant based on Batgirl's costume in the sixties Batman TV series is also playable.
Background[edit | edit source]
Barbara Gordon is the daughter of Jim Gordon, the Gotham City police commissioner. Barbara is dedicated to following in her father's footsteps, but is forbidden from joining the police force. Inspired by Batman, Barbara adopts the alternate identity of Batgirl. Batman initially discourages Batgirl, both for using his motif and for her inexperience, but through working with Robin, Batgirl comes into her own and is eventually accepted by Batman. Her father, however, is left out of the secret, causing both Batgirl and Batman stress as they imagine the consequences of what might happen to Gordon's reputation and their relationships with him if Barbara's life as a vigilante was to be revealed.
Barbara, taking on the identity of Oracle after an attack by The Joker leaves her without the use of her legs (which she has since regained, along with the Batgirl mantle), is a charter member of the Birds of Prey. Batgirl/Oracle, Black Canary, and Huntress form the Birds' core. Other members have included Katana and Poison Ivy. Barbara and Dick Grayson have also retained a close bond even since the latter has moved from his career as Robin to Nightwing, sometimes attempting to begin a romantic relationship.
The LEGO Batman Movie[edit | edit source]
Barbara is a member of the GCPD. She succeeds her father as police commissioner and introduces an initiative for the police to team-up with Batman to ease the intense crime Gotham experiences. At some point Barbara becomes Batgirl.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- In the original video game, Batgirl has the same suits as Batman, but the video game's Prima guide fails to mention that she has suits at all.
- Official stills of LEGO Batman: The Videogame depict Batgirl with a blue cape. In the actual game it is yellow.
- Batgirl's LEGO Batman 3 variant based on the Batman TV series is labelled as "1966." Batgirl was not introduced until the third season of the show, which aired in 1968.
