Batgirl: Futures End

“You rely too much on your weapons.”

“You haven’t lived until you’ve covered two sketchy dudes in goop, Cass. I know what I said, okay? Sheesh.”

This – I live for this. My two favorite friends from comics, together, bantering – and they sound like the old friends who have known each other for years, just like I loved them in the old continuity. It’s such a funny moment but also such an adoring moment. 

It’s great.

Batgirl: Futures End

“Girls. I am sorry. This is a poor than you for your courage and valor. But I’m afraid this is a fight I have to make alone. Stephanie, you have the heart of a lion, in every way that matters. You had the strength to resist the darkness where I did not. Tiffany, your day will come. Don’t be afraid of your intelligence. I believe you will outshine us all. Cassandra, you came through Hell and made everyone you met stronger and better. You are the person I most want to be.”

This is another good moment, so emotional and heartfelt, and of course it once again focuses on the relationships that bring most people to read this comic to begin with. It focuses on Barbara and the girls who carry her legacy, the family she has made in this dystopian future. And it’s complete with little nods to characters’ histories like how Steph helped pull Babs out of the dark in “Flood” storyline of her own series, or how Cassandra spent her time as Batgirl with a full facemask but still showed so much emotion and openness. 

It’s good stuff.

It’s the kind of stuff I’d like to see an entire issue consist of. But well. It didn’t.
