Day 17: Favorite legacy hero (Hero that took on a previous hero’s ID)
While I didn’t like seeing Cass Cain just chuck her Batgirl suit over to her best friend and never appear again, I must say I love Steph in the Batgirl suit. Steph Brown gets so much hate and I just don’t get it. She’s almost always forgotten as the fourth Robin and if she is remembered, it’s as the ‘Girl Wonder who died after having 15 minutes in the spotlight.’ (Even though she never really ‘died’…).
And no, Steph’s not good at everything. That’s why I love her. She’s a lot like me, which is probably why I like her so much. She’s blonde, she’s clumsy, and she’s smart. She loved a boy throughout her teen years much as I did. She’s funny and likes to laugh even when the situation looks dire.
No, she’s not perfect, but who wants to read about boring old perfection anyways? No one is perfect and in terms of Babs’ legacy, I think she’s doing a wonderful job so far.
And I love the eggplant colour being incorporated in her BG suit. Rock it, girl.
