batgirl inc: promo 02 by ~ylchen
who’s that girl with red hair that isn’t batwoman or batgirl?
That’s Misfit, her real name is Charlotte Gage-Radcliffe and she briefly called herself Batgirl. She was a homeless orphan, and she made her own cape and ran around in jeans and a Batgirl T-shirt doing the hero thing. She has healing and teleportation powers thanks to….? Something to do with magic I can’t even remember.
Anyway, she was a huge Babs fan and even broke into her home. Babs talked her out of being Batgirl by telling her basically “the horror stories of being a female superhero associated with the Batfamily 101 look i got fridged and Stephanie Brown also got fridged, this is not a good gig they won’t hesitate to sacrifice you to the altar of manpain”. So Charlie decided she’d take up her own identity and became Misfit instead. Eventually Babs accepted her into the Birds of Prey and she lived with Babs etc.
She’s probably been erased in the reboot I haven’t been keeping track but she wasn’t created in 1970 so the odds aren’t good.
