Dear Greg,
Is Batgirl's identity as Barbara Gordon not a secret to the rest of the Team? Considering the she (unlike Tim and Dick) never wore sunglasses the few times we've seen in civillian clothing, and also taking into consideration to not everyone knows Robin and Nightwing's identities- the whole thing strikes me as rather odd. You'd think Batman would enforce the "no revealing your identity" to her as well. Can you please explain this?

Greg responds...

Barbara's identity is known to the rest of the Team. Batman is her mentor, but not her legal guardian (unlike Dick & Tim), and in any case, she's over the age of consent now.
