Conversely, you could say that removing Barbara from her wheelchair drastically alters her character, but then wouldn't that indicate that this is a character defined by her handicap? This begs the question of why so many fans adore her: Or is it because she's all of that, but stuck in a wheelchair?
Think about the question, and surely many of you will find an answer you don't like. The Killing Joke, Barbara Gordon's paralysis has been the subject of debate, with arguments in favor of, and against, restoring her mobility. Writers, artists, editorial staff and critics have spoken in great length about the nature of subject, citing responses from readership, issues of sexism, diversity and representation, as well as other considerations that have impacted decisions regarding the character's portrayal.
Gotham Knights, Ray Tate, a reviewer at Comics Bulletinwrote "[t]here is absolutely no reason why Barbara Gordon should be in a wheelchair. There are countless examples of Batman employing that which is only theoretical in his fight against crime. His knowledge of stem cell technology should surpass that of the real world. There is simply no reason for Barbara Gordon to be confined to that wheelchair. Batgirl has fought more crime and done more to aid Batman as Batgirl than she has as Oracle.
Batgirl has saved Batman's life on numerous occasions. Barbara in this incarnation is not a bad character, but she is not better because she no longer hunts the night in cape and cowl. Saving Superheroines from Comic-book Violence", Shannon Cochran noted a long history of inequality regarding the treatment of female heroes.
She quotes Gail Simone, who discussed the gender difference regarding the treatment of Batman and Batgirl regarding paralysis: Less than a year later, Batman was fine. Batgirl—now named Oracle—was in a wheelchair and remained so for many years. Ross explained in an interview that he and Dini had planned to restore her mobility by placing her in a Lazarus Pita naturally occurring chemical pool in the DC Universe that has rejuvenating effects when a person is submerged within it.
He stated that "we pitched then-Batman editor Denny O'Neil with these drawings of that costume design. The idea of using the red instead of the traditional yellow was meant to invoke the idea that coming from the Lazarus Pit, she was in a way, more compromised as a character Denny shot it down, because, according to him, everybody loves Barbara Gordon as Oracle and as a handicapped character. The theory was that DC didn't have enough handicapped characters, so they weren't going to do anything with Barbara as she was.
And the design went into the drawer. There WAS some idea of her being a role model We wanted her to cope with what had happened to her and becoming, in many ways, more effective as Oracle than she ever was as Batgirl.
And we knew that others with disabilities might look at her and feel good reading about her I don't think people 'dance around' her disabilities as they don't want to focus on them, but on her character. These shouldn't be stories about a disabled person; they are stories about a compelling fascinating character who HAPPENS to be in a wheelchair and I think that's correct. Barbara isn't her handicap; there's more to her than that.
I feel very proud for my part in creating Oracle. Marc Dipaolo, author of War, Politics and Superheroes: Ethics and Propaganda in Comics and Film commented that DC writers and editors would not allow her to recover completely, and that "[t]he decision was made because there were not enough handicapped superheroes in the DC Universe to justify 'curing' one, and because it would have been odd to see Barbara Gordon escape from her wheelchair in the world of fiction when Christopher Reeve never had that opportunity.

Graves don't stay filled. But the one constant is that Barbara stays in that chair. Role model or not, that is problematic and uncomfortable, and the excuses to not cure her, in a world of purple rays and magic and super-science, are often unconvincing or wholly meta-textual.
And the longer it goes on, the more it has stretched credibility. But now, everything has changed. If nearly everyone in the DCU, not just Batgirl but almost everyone, is now at a much earlier stage in their career, then my main objection no longer applies, because we are seeing Barbara at an earlier starting point.
