Oracle- Has she ever had an exoskeleton?

Postby dk09w1ngz » Jul 23rd, 2015, 7:52 pm

I'm just wondering because I saw Huey from MGSV with an exoskeleton and thought "Why can't Oracle just have something like that?"

Cause Batman comics haven't hit MGS level weird yet.

The hell is wrong with an exoskeleton? There's tons of impossible tech and weird members of the rogues gallery already, so what the hell? :batman2:

Well, for one thing, we don't know if exoskeletons exist in the Arkhamverse.

Another is that even if it did, Batman sure as hell wouldn't let Barbara wear one, because first thing she's gonna do is get back out there as Batgirl. And Arkhamverse Batman is pretty much like DKR Batman, in the way that he's overprotective of his sidekicks.

I wasn't speaking exclusively of the Arkhamverse Babs. Makes sense though that no way would Bats allow it.

It would be cool, but the whole point of Oracle is that she can still kick ass even though she is paralyzed. Which is an inspiration that instills hope even when hope is lost. She focused her talents elsewhere and became a crucial part of the war against crime even more so than when she was Batgirl.

There's also not too big of a parapelegic demographic in comics. Although DC didn't seem to care about that when the New 52 happened.
