Barbara Gordon's glasses.

Gotham Knights

If I could use anything right now, I could use some happy news. Things are depressing, the world is on fire, there's a facist in the White House, and I need some escapism. So I pulled up the trailers for some upcoming games, and found some of the happy news that I crave.

A new Batman game is coming soon.

But you see, Batman isn’t in it.

The Batcave has been destroyed... by Bruce Wayne. He's dead, and he's initiated his Code Black, leaving a message to his loved ones. They'll have to pick up the fight, and it looks like you can choose your hero. Would you like to play as Robin? Maybe Nightwing? Perhaps Red Hood?

No… no thank you. My mind was made up when I saw this:

A scene from the Gotham Knights trailer - Barbara Gordon's glasses.
Oh yes...

And I literally hollered when I saw this:

A scene from the Gotham Knights trailer - Batgirl swinging through the city with the bat logo behind her
Oh hell yes...

Be you. Always be yourself. Unless you can be Batgirl.

Then be Batgirl.
