Batman Has Drafted Scooby-Doo's Daphne to Be a New Batgirl

Nov 23, 2022 · 14


The following article contains spoilers for The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2 by Ivan Cohen, Dario Brizuela, Franco Riesco, Carrie Strachan and Saida Temofonte, on sale now from DC.

Iconic Scooby-Doo character Daphne Blake can now say that she has suited up as Batgirl in an official DC comic book.

In the newly-released second issue of the second volume of The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries, the original Batgirl, Barbara Gordon, is left indisposed. As such, Batman himself hand-picks Daphne to temporarily take over as Batgirl. Barbara takes fellow redhead Daphne to her secret hideout, the Clock Tower, where she bestows the iconic costume onto her. As Batgirl, Daphne then hits the streets, with Barbara once again assuming the role of Oracle.

Interestingly, this is actually not the first time Daphne has worn the Batgirl suit. Mystery Inc.'s resident rich girl previously donned the cowl in the 2018 animated film Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold, a crossover between the Scooby-Doo franchise and the animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, the latter of which originally aired on Cartoon Network from 2008 to 2011. In addition to Daphne rocking Batgirl's retired costume, the 2018 crossover film saw Fred Jones, Norville "Shaggy" Rogers, Velma Dinkley and Scooby-Doo don the retired outfits of Batman, Nightwing, Robin and Ace the Bat-Hound, respectively.

Mystery Inc. is certainly no stranger to crossovers, and the Scooby-Doo franchise has crossed paths win the Batman franchise many times over the years, considering the fact that both are Warner Bros. properties. In fact, Scooby and the gang first met the dynamic duo of Batman and Robin in "The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair," the second episode of the crossover-centric The New Scooby-Doo Movies, which originally aired in 1972. They joined forces again later that very same year in Episode 15, "The Caped Crusader Caper." The New Scooby-Doo Movies also saw Mystery Inc. team up with the likes of the Addams Family, the Three Stooges, Josie and the Pussycats, the Harlem Globetrotters, Davy Jones of the Monkees and many more.

Written by Ivan Cohen, illustrated by Dario Brizuela, colored by Franco Riesco with Carrie Strachan and lettered by Saida Temofonte, The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2 is on sale now from DC.
