Today Batman L'il Gotham: Halloween hits digitally, with yet another trick DC Comics has played on the Stephanie Brown fanbase.
As reported yesterday, Batman: L'il Gotham was rumored to feature the first comic book appearance of "toxic" characters Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain in over a year. Seemlingly confirming the rumors, over at Bleeding Cool, a preview page revealed a character in the story dressed as the Stephanie Brown Batgirl:
Alas, even this minor appearance was too good to be true. Instead of giving the fanbase a treat, DC has pulled off yet another trick on Stephanie Brown fans. Here's the official page:
As you can see, the person, who's hair was originally blonde, dressed as Stephanie Brown in the preview is suddenly raven haired. On the plus side, I guess it beats her not being replaced by Barbara Gordon for a third straight time. Still, this reporter does find it a bit odd that DC is going to such great lengths just to troll a fanbase.
We reached out to Dan Didio for comment, but he laughed mirthily, and began freestyling at us. We have obtained exclusive video of the freestyle, embedded below:
