You know who makes an awesome librarian? Batgirl. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen: Batgirl, otherwise known as Barbara Gordon, Commissioner Gordon’s daughter. She’d rush from the library to help Batman and Robin bash up some super criminals. For those who are not fully acquainted with Batman lore, Batgirl is shot in the spine by the Joker and paralyzed from the waist down. Confined to a wheelchair and unable to use her fighting skills, she becomes Batman’s information expert. Aiding Bruce from the Batcave with building schematics, voice analysis, GPS, criminal profiling, intercepting communications, hacking and research, she takes on the new name Oracle.
Her new name really spells out how integral she is to Batman and crime fighting. She is Bruce’s oracle, the provider of all knowledge necessary to save the day. For video gamers who have played the Batman games Arkham Asylum or Arkham City, you know you can’t beat the game without Oracle’s help. Without information, cases can’t be solved and justice can’t be served. In other words…a librarian saves Gotham every night.
