Storyline

At the Gotham City library, Barbara Gordon helps Bruce Wayne find a book on butterflies so he can prove a point to a friend, a millionaire explorer. As Bruce and his youthful ward, Dick Grayson, are leaving they spot the villainous Killer Moth and three of his henchmen and, suspecting they are up to no good, determine to return as their superhero alter-egos, Batman and Robin. While the Caped Crusaders are donning their costumes, the criminal quartet knock out the millionaire, lock Barbara in an alcove and prepare to spirit their victim away. When the Dynamic Duo attempt to capture the crooks, they are encased in Killer Moth's silk cocoon. Is this the end of our Gotham City heroes? And why does a beautiful librarian have a cowl and a cape hanging in a convenient closet? Written by David Bassler

Great Pilot As well as being very similar to The story in Detective Comics #359
14 June 2015 | by Stebaer4See all my reviews

This is A Great Clip even for an unaired pilot that got swapped over for another intro of which would be entitleded Exit Penguin Enter Batgirl.Yes this Pilot is very Similar to Detective #359's Story of "The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl." Because it has a Supervillian called The Killer Moth too.But when all doesn't agree just call it a parallel earth story.

There are 2 different versions as to how this New Batgirl Debuted on TV in The Amazing "S" World of Comics it claimed that The TV show inspired her Debut in The Comics While in 'Tec #359 it ends with saying this new Batgirl will only come back if you write us to let us know.Then upon doing so as I read the letters column in 'Tec #363,of which featured her 2nd app.,People not only wanted her to come back but to be featured on the TV show too.Then they were told that they'd consult The writers and producers of The TV Show too.

In this Pilot it's even similar to The story in 'Tec #359 Killermoth is The Villain and Batgirl rescues Bruce Wayne from Killermoth of which upon doing so he comes back as Batman but without Batgirl knowing they're one and the same.While in This Batgirl saves Batman & Robin from Killermoth upon arrival and after they show Barbara Gordon transform into Batgirl like they did in a similar way as seen in 'Tec #359.

As I'd also read in a Magazine that adding Batgirl for the 3rd and final season did help to add higher excitement but not higher ratings.

Truthfully,Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a."Ste" of Framingham,Ma.USA
