DC Comics Convergence event has seen the return of several popular characters that were “benched” by the new 52 such as Cassandra Cain and Renee Montoya. One of the most prominent characters that disappeared in main continuity was Barbara Gordon in her Oracle incarnation. But Oracle is back along with a pre-52 Dick Grayson as Finger Striped Nightwing for Convergence, DC’s two month event.
Not only is Oracle back, the woman who wrote her in two volumes of Birds of Prey is back writing her, Gail Simone. I chatted with Gail about her return to the character, her thoughts about Barbara and what we can expect from Convergence.
