I've been abducted. Guy Friday was trying to warn me about this man in a suit who was looking for me, and the suit guy totally found me. He also had friends. I have no idea who they are or what they want, but they've taken me to some remote location. I think I'm in a hellicarrier. I don't even know. I just want to be home with my bat baby. The little sugar plum has really been growing on me. I'm still scared shitless at parenting her, she has wings and likes Dr. Pepper, but I think I'll be ok. I can't wait to introduce her to comics. And the toy aisle. Anyways, I hear someone approaching me so I need to go.

Nick Fury: It most certainly was you. I've got a file on you about a mile long. I know everything.
Miss M: Gulp. Got it.
Nick Fury: Listen up M, my name is Nick Fury. I work with S.H.I.E.L.D. and you're in danger girl.
Nick Fury: Yeah, I know. This time though it has dragged S.H.I.E.L.D. into it.
Miss M: I don't really know what that means.
Miss M: Me?
Nick Fury: Great. Just great.
Nick Fury: Not yet. I need the name of your friend. I also need to know where you will be at all times. If this cosmic force tries to attack Earth, it will be just like every other battle the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. have had to face before.
Miss M: Bye.
Guy Friday: Yeah. Sounds tough... You do realize those S.H.I.E.L.D. people will come after us, right?
Guy Friday: Bye M.
In the air...
At the Wayne Manor...
Bruce Wayne: Of course you are, she is your baby M.
Miss M: I know.
No, not at all. She was like my kid sister. She was tough as nails and full of spirit.
Growing up there weren't easy ways for a little dorky girl like myself to find out about super heroes, particularly super heroes I wanted to pretend to be. Every now and then my parents would watch the reruns of the original Batman series with me and the night I found out there were female super heroes like Catwoman and Batgirl, who were not animated, my eyes simply could not leave the screen. (I realize Catwoman was more complicated than a full on super hero, but I loved them both.) These two characters were my first introduction to live action female super heroes. I was transfixed. My world was forever changed. Playing the damsel in distress with the kids in the neighborhood came to a swift end. I wanted to swing from the roof tops with a flowing cape behind me. I wanted to tell my own stories and adventures, ditch being tied to a tree or the train tracks. Thank you Yvonne Craig for the whimsy and magic you brought as Batgirl. You were my first Batgirl and you will always be a special one. Wherever you are in the great beyond, I hope it involves adventure with some pow, bonk, and sock!
