ceridwenalison-deactivated20120 asked: Hi! I just wanted to say that I loved Batgirl #9 so much. I do have a question about it, however: Is Mary meant to be related to Archie and Elsie Mitchell or any of the Sunday school attendees with them when they became the only casualties of the Japanese paper bomb attacks? Or did a fictional family discover the bomb in the DC Universe on that day (or earlier, maybe), sparing them the fate they befell in our history? Thanks so much, and again, such a good issue!
HA! That’s a good question!
My feeling is that it’s a different family for the DCu. I am aware of the real incident, even went to the site where it happened, but using the real family names seemed like it would be very disrespectful.
So it’s a different family.
