Batgirl: Spoiled (2012-13) was a fan web series created by Sax Carr and Marisha Ray, The short-lived series was written by Sax Carr, Marisha Ray, Adam Hann-Byrd, Sam Weller, Aliou Amravanti, April Wahlin, and Zack S. West.

After a close call leading to a falling out with Batman and Oracle, Batgirl goes out on her own to re-examine her place in Gotham and the world at large. Stephanie spends her days seeking out advice from Gotham’s various heroes, and her nights patrolling the streets in a seemingly endless battle against crime. All this while attending college, having a social life, and finding time to sleep.
The first 2 episodes were written by Sax Carr and directed by Damian Beurer, and 12 additional episodes were scripted. However, only those first 2 episodes were ever produced. The series was cancelled in 2013 due to a take-down notice from Warner Brothers.

- Episode 1: Blindside (2012). 14:33 run time.

My thoughts… Batgirl: Spoiled, like Deadpool: The Webseries, was another comic book fan series cut down much too soon by the powers that be which, in this case, is the villainous Warner Bros.! I hope, one day, that those other 10 episodes will get produced! Marisha Ray, of course, is the lovely host of Bat in the Sun‘s awesome web series Super Power Beat Down! Oh, and I love Tara Strand’s Harley Quinn!
