Stephanie Brown Batgirl

 

Stephanie Brown / Batgirl: Stephanie is the daughter of the Villain known as the Cluemaster. She takes on the role of a superhero to battle her own fathers crimes as the Spoiler. She become Robin to fill in for Tim Drake when he is unable to fulfill the position due to family issues, and is later granted the Mantle of Batgirl.

Well folks those are your choices, for my money I think I am going to go with Stephanie Brown’s Batgirl costume. It is very similar to the one that Barbara Gordon wore when she was Batgirl but has a personality of its own that in my opinion separates it from Gordon’s suit and I think looks the best out of the four former Robins new attires. Now I want to hear from you ? Vote for your Favorite of the four and leave a comment explaining your choice below!

  1. As much as I like Nightwing, his costume isn’t all that great. Felt I had to say that since he’s currently leading.

  2. Ok, I voted batgirl in part for… the pouches… :-D

    A Bat-character is one of the few out there here pouches make sense, and hers are OK, whereas the others are lacking in that department. Where do they house their gadgets?

    Also, it’s black for discretion, and bat-like, and, well, fine overall :)

    I like Stephanie’s character, and I always thought that a Girl Wonder was a breath of fresh air. But if we’re going by costumes, I have to vote for Red Robin: this is what Robin’s suit should always have looked like, and a logical evolution of the character as a grown-up.

  4. As much as I’ve loved some of Nightwing’s costumes, others have been kind of horrendous. So, instead, I’m going with Tim Drake, whose costume seems to look a bit more combat practical, and who, to my knowledge, has never worn a disco collar

  5. I was tempted to go with Stephs, because it’s like a combination of the former bat girls: purples and yellows from Barbra’s and mat black from Cassandra’s

    Though in the end, I went for Time Drake. For one thing,the new 52 version is so much better than the old Red Robin –

    I’m sorry, but that’s just a earless batman cowl. The new version manages to distance him from Batman, with the unique wing harness, while remaining in the same shared asthetical characteristic

    I was going to question the absence of Carrie Kelly, but then I realised it was their post robin costumes and her Cat girl one was… well

  6. Here is an interesting image on this topic I Just found and thought I’d share.

  7. Okay this poll is totally reversed of what I would of said, well almost. I think it should be from coolest to dumbest going as Red Hood, Red Robin, Batgirl, then Nightwing.

  8. Out of those id go with batgirl. As for robin costumes I like Damian’s hooded one the best

  9. I choose THAT version of the Red Robin costume as my fave. Stephanie’s batgirl costume comes in second.

  10. I’d probably go with Tim’s first Red Robin costume. The one he wears now isn’t nearly as good.

  11. I’ll go with Spoiler.

    It’s about the boobies.

    It’s all about the boobies. :)
