We like diversity here at ComicsAlliance. We've said it before, and we'll say it again. We're also big fans of superheroes, and that probably goes without saying.
We especially like diversity with our superheroes. Diversity broadens the genre's reach, encourages respect and understanding of people's differences, and gives minority audiences more chances to see themselves in fiction, and those are all great things. Because of this, we've come up with a new way to look at diversity in superhero comics - particularly team books. We call it the Harvey/Renee Index.

Launched into the Internet last night was this lovely cover for Gail Simone's new Batgirl series. Identified by DC Women Kicking Ass as the Adam Hughes illustration for Batgirl #2, the image would seem to depict a Barbara Gordon younger than she presently appears as Oracle in Birds of Prey. Of course, we'll have to wait until September to see just what's what in the new series, which is doubtlessly the most controversial of DC's superhero relaunch.
Barbara Gordon -- the original Batgirl who's been confined to a wheelchair since 1988's Batman: The Killing Joke, in which she was shot in the spine by The Joker -- will be up and running again in the wake of the forthcoming DC Comics relaunch/reboot. The news was confirmed Monday by Gail Simone, writer of DC's new Batgirl series and also the author most responsible for Barbara Gordon's activities in the last several years.

The Birds of Prey are a confident bunch, with a lineup of ladies expressively in charge of their sexuality, but did you ever think you'd get the inside scoop on their superheroic rendezvous from their "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" counterparts?
