    • Superman and The Lone Ranger

      As Barbara Gordon thinks about becoming Batgirl, she references two other animated heroes. When she says, "mild-mannered Olympic hero by day," she alludes to Clark Kent, who is often characterized as mild-mannered when he is not Superman. When she says, "who is that masked woman?" she references The Lone Ranger, associated with the well-known question, "who was that masked man?"
