I loved the idea of an app that criminals can use to let eachother know where Batman is. Have you seen Batman? Just hit a button on your phone, indicating his location. Modern tech is catching up with Bats. The only thing I don't like about Batgirl is that she doesn't come off like a frightening creature of the night.
She's just a young woman, acting like a regular person, but in a costume. Still a great title though and I like how well they're fleshing out Barbara as a person.
That's because she isn't Batman and isn't trying to be.
Maybe she should.
I really like Batgirl and what they're doing with her, but while reading, I just got to thinking that she needs to come off as more than just a regular girl in a costume. A bit more mystery and a more menacing aura would be a better fit. Hugging and chatting with victims she just rescued seems more appropriate for a celebrity appearing at the mall than a crime fighter. Some superheroes can get away with that because their powers are formidable enough, but people like Batman and Batgirl don't have that image or that advantage.
