“Your love for Stephanie Brown has been so inspiring to us, she’s a character we really love, and we’re proud to announce she’ll be coming back in this series. Tynion found a way to bring Spoiler into the story and into the New 52, and it’s really perfect.” 

Stephanie Brown debuted in 1992 as the crime fighter Spoiler and was co-created by Chuck Dixon and Tom Lyle. She later went on to be not only Batman’s sidekick Robin but also took the mantle of Batgirl at one point.
