Flushpoint -- Back To The Bowl

Someone familiar with all the press releases about Flashpoint mentioned that "Babs is stuck as Batgirl."

...wait.  What?

Would that be Barbara Gordon?  Oracle?  Who DC has insisted is a positive portrayal of a handicapped character and why, in a universe full of Lazarus pits, cybernetics, magic, and other bullshit, would never walk again?

Is the reboot going to undo The Killing Joke and Barbara Gordon will never have been in a wheelchair at all?  And if so, what will be more hypocritical?

I got a real bad feeling about this....
