There could be wedding bells in the future for Batgirl and Nightwing again. Dick Grayson A. Nightwing and Barbara Gordon A. Friends and allies since their earliest superhero adventures, Dick and Barbara have always had a healthily flirtatious relationship. However, with the Flashpoint reboot of the DC Universe, the romance reset. Since Flashpoint, Batgirl and Nightwing have stayed mostly platonic. Recently though that has begun to change for the better. As of Batgirl 25 , the two millennial superheroes are officially together - and don't see themselves marrying anyone else. Batgirl 25 is a special issue in Barbara Gordon's current run, super-sized to commemorate hitting the milestone of 25 issues, and broken up into three distinct stories.
The impact of their often Earth-shattering romances transcend even the comic book genre. Nightwing and Batgirl have been right at the heart of the Bat-Family for generations, and both lead their own comic series to this very day. For a long time, they were the only two characters who fully understood what it meant to have been brought under the wing of the Batman. Finally, he had someone he could commiserate with about whatever horrors Batman was putting him through at that moment. The bar has always been set incredibly high for these two kids. All the other people that Dick or Babs have been with in a romantic capacity have always struck me as placeholders. Even when Babs was engaged to Jason Bard and Dick was flirting it up with Huntress at the Spyral HQ, it was as if they always knew they would be coming back together someday—it was only a matter of time until they found their roads home.
In the much maligned movie adaptation of the Killing Joke, there is a non-canon scene in which they did have sex. In this universe they have also dated. Her real name is Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Commission Gordon. She first appeared in Detective Comics as a libarian. She helps Batman and Robin fight the rouges gallery in Gotham City. She has had feelings for Dick Grayson in the comics. Even after Dick started dating Barbara, the two have stayed friends. Sometime after Dick became Nightwing, Barbara retired her Batgirl identity. Shortly afterwards, The Joker tracked Barbara down and damaged her spine, leaving her paralysed from the waist down. After the incident, Barbara resolved to not let this ruin her life and became a computer hacker known as The Oracle.
