Today’s DC-related strangeness: Someone faked an image from Dustin Nguyen’s Batman: Li’l Gotham. You know the one—the one where a trick-or-treater dressed like the Stephanie Brown Batgirl had her hair color changed from blond to black. Which is already a bizarre thing for DC to do. Leave the hair alone, earn a little goodwill back from Steph fans. But then someone decided to rig up an image where the Stephian purple costume highlights are also black. Which Bleeding Cool posted. Why do something like that?
My guess is someone meant it as a joke, but we’ll never know the truth. All I can say is, this entire episode isn’t just weird. It’s beyond weird. If weird were one of the inner planets, and we were some kind of NASA space probe, we’d be Voyager I.
Weird. And stupid. The art's still adorable, though.
