In "Homefront", On the first day of the new year in Gotham Academy, she noticed Dick with Artemis. She later shares a conversation with Dick regarding this, seeming jealous.

In "Misplaced", The adult and children of earth were separated into parallel worlds. So when all adults went missing, Barbara and Bette helped shelter many younger children in Gotham Academy and read stories to a group of toddlers.


Sometime between 2010 and 2015 Barbara became the vigilante known as Batgirl and joined the team alongside her good friend Nightwing.


In "Happy New Year", Batgirl and Wonder Girl tried to save United Nations Secretary General Tseng from being killed by Lobo. Lobo easily took care of them and revealed that Tseng was actually a mechanical construct being operated by a Krolotean. Batgirl was assigned to Beta Squad with Bumblebee and Wolf, and sent to Vlatavastok to track and capture remaining Kroloteans.

In "Alienated", Batgirl was dispatched along with the team and League Members to hunt the last of the Krotoleans. Batgirl is assigned to a squad with the bat family, Batman, Nightwing and Robin who infiltrate the base alongside the other squads. Black Manta (Aqualad) perceptively discovers their arrival and sounds the alarm, causing Batgirl and her fellow squad to fight together. Batgirl fought alongside Nightwing and Robin until the bomb below was set for detination, Batgirl and the rest of the team escaped before it blew. When Batman and the other 5 members of the league set out to clear their name Batgirl, Nightwing, and Robin wish Batman good luck.

In "Beneath", Batgirl was assigned to Alpha Squad alongside Miss Martian, Wonder Girl and Bumble Bee in an effort to infultrate a base in Byalia in order to find Krotolean stolen technology. They are commanded off sight by Nightwing who explains that he assigned an all female squad to avoid Queen Bee's power of male control. Batgirl asks if he would have felt the need to justify an all male squad, leaving Nightwing in an awkward silence. They begin the mission by sneaking in and leaving Wonder Girl behind to watch. Wonder girl spots Psimon, which means she cannot warn the team telepathically, and is forced to disobey orders and enter the facility to inform Miss Martian directly. She is successful but is soon spotted by Devastation which causes them to become compromised, unknown to Batgirl who remains in a vent and is found by Bumble Bee who informs her. They head further into the facility, but are soon found as Batgirl is quickly knocked unconscious by Psimon. The team rescues her and leaves her to drive their escape plane along with several found hostages. She is nearly stopped but saved by Miss Martian and Wonder Girl, they return to receive a warm congratulations from Nightwing.
