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 and Babs gets 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.


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.


Barbara Gordon is a short teenage girl. She has apricot skin, bright green eyes and long, orange hair which she generally ties into a ponytail. She wears a purple hoodie which has bat ears on top of the hood as well as yellow stripes on the sleeves, with a purple collared-yellow t-shirt underneath. She also wears dark purple shorts, long socks with white, purple & yellow horizontal stripes, and yellow shoes with white decorations.

As Batgirl, in Season 1, she wears a purple Batsuit with yellow gloves, yellow boots, a golden utility belt, and a golden bat logo on her chest with her orange hair cascading down at the back. For Season 2, she temporarily shares the same outfit as Batman, which is the same as her last costume but colored black and gray.
