O was scheduled for Monday, and somehow got changed to draft form! Unfortunately, it didn't show up and I had no open library to go to on Monday due to a local holiday! Here it is!
Here's my latest entry in this year's A-Z Blogging Challenge. My oh-so-specific theme: Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters.
The Oracle first showed up in Startling Comics 20, 1943, from Better Comics. His alter ego was Bob Paxton, and he could -- as his name implies -- foretell the future.
Barbara Gordon, formerly Batgirl, became Oracle after losing the use of her legs when brutally shot by the Joker. As Oracle, Barbara helps to fight crime from (relatively) behind the scenes. She first appeared (as Oracle) in DC's Suicide Squad #23, 1989.
Thanks for your time.
