This article is about Batgirl (G2). For the generation one version, see Batgirl (G1).

Barbara Kathleen "Babs" Gordon (also known as Batgirl) is one of the main characters in the second generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. She is a member of the Super Hero Girls, the daughter of Commissioner Gordon, and a student at Metropolis High School.

Depiction in the series

Barbara and her father move from Gotham City to Metropolis for Babs to study at Metropolis High School (which she was enrolled). Her dad gives a homeroom number to her and drives to work. Babs then suspects some of the girls who seem to have superpowers. She enters the school with her schedule on it. At lunch, Babs starts throwing food at Kara, which she was mistaken that Karen was the one who threw food at her. She then throws back to her, in which Jess blocks her by using a food tray but the food hits Zee's hair. After that, Babs declared a food fight and Mr. Chapin interrupted, causing the 5 to go to detention on their first day. Moments later Wonder Woman, who cut class, entered the room. Babs then confirms her suspicions and Diana was impressed since she has never seen anyone other than her be eager in saving the world of man. All of the girls then agreed that they will become Super Heroes and Diana agrees to take lessons in becoming a normal teenager.

Personality

Batgirl is the comic relief out of all of her friends. She is known to be bubbly, cheerful, confident, fun-loving, funny, ambitious, and downright optimistic. She is the one who wants everyone to get along and is often seen as the "cheerleader" in the group because of her contagious enthusiasm and zest for life. However, she is a fangirl and her determination makes her destined to be Batman's future sidekick. She is also a creative problem solver and will use her creativity and her surprisingly analytical thinking to stop the bad guys and be the glue in her friendships.

Appearance

Barbara is a short, slim and fair-skinned teenager with rosy cheeks, bright-emerald eyes and long, hot-orange hair with a brighter-colored ombre on the bottom with highlights, usually tied back into a ponytail. She also appears to don reddish-pink lipstick.

As a civilian, Babs wears a bright yellow-and-light violet ringer-tee under a purple hoodie-jacket with two yellow stripes on the long sleeves and bat ears attached to the hood, dark purple short-shorts, white thigh-high socks with purple and yellow stripes, and yellow sneakers with white shoelaces and toes.

As Batgirl, she wears a purple bat-shaped cowl with her hair sticking out of the back, and a similarly-colored bat-shaped cape with yellow inner lining. Her cape is worn over her form-fitting, dark purple Batsuit with her logo colored in yellow, which is located on the chest area. She also wore a yellow elbow-length gloves with spikes on them, a yellow utility belt around her waist, and yellow calf-high boots.

In Season 2, she temporarily shares the same outfit as Batman, which is the same as her last costume but colored black and gray.
