Batgirl is going back to her roots with a new costume featuring a more classic look.
Polygon reports Barbara Gordon will soon leave Burnside and return to Gotham City in Batgirl #26. As such the new costume, by Sean Gordon Murphy, ditches the purple-and-yellow color blend in favor of the more classic blue-and-yellow design.
“This is supposed to be a version of the costume that she was working on when she still lived with her dad,” writer Mairghread Scott said. “That’s why it looks so much like her original Batgirl: Year One outfit.”
The new design will allow Batgirl to be more tactical and stealthy, which she’ll need as the hero will soon be battling a villain named Grotesque, who’s making art pieces out of human body parts.
