COMICS: Stephanie Brown To Return As 'Spoiler' In BATMAN: ETERNAL

Ever since The New 52 was announced, fans were wondering what would happen to hugely popular characters like former Batgirls Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown, but now DC has announced at NYCC that Stephanie will return in Batman: Eternal!


Former Robin and Batgirl, Stephanie Brown will be making her return to DC Comics in Batman: Eternal in the third issue of the newly announced weekly series by DC Comics. Two years ago after the "New 52" reboot, several fans were disappointed to learn that Barbara Gordon had claimed the cowl after recovering from the events of The Killing Joke, preventing Cassandra Cain or Stephanie Brown from ever donning the cowl.

Now at the Batman panel at New York Comic-Con, (via CBR) Batman writer Scott Snyder has revealed that the character WILL return in the third issue of Batman: Eternal, saying that "We know that they're characters that you guys have been really vocal about. Your guys' love of Stephanie Brown have been so inspiring to us. We're really proud to announce that she'll be coming back in [new weekly series 'Batman: Eternal'], in a big way. Dan DiDio is in the audience to yell at us for telling you that."

Fans have always been vocally angry at DC Comics and most notably, Dan DiDio, for seemingly shunning Stephanie Brown's existence. A recent "controversy" is when former Stephanie Brown-Batgirl scribe Bryan Q. Miller announced that Stephanie would be Nightwing in his Smallville: Season 11 series, only to be replaced by Barbara Gordon during development. Scott Snyder reassured fans that Stephanie was not forgotten, saying "No one was trying to shelve her, it was more about finding the right time to reintroduce her."

It was the idea of Talon's James Tynion IV to reintroduce Stephanie to DC Comics, according to Snyder and it was suggested that she will once again don her "Spoiler" alias in the pages of Batman: Eternal, launching 2014 to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Batman. Stephanie Brown "Batgirl" trade collections have been mostly out-of-print, but if you're curious as to why the character is so loved, Amazon still has copes of Volume 3 available by clicking HERE.
