SPOILERS: Batgirl #4

Na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na, hey hey hey, good bye Kaaaaai.

The Spoilers:

Yeah, Kai is in trouble. Batgirl gets from the people that she's fighting that they were flunk students of that test in asia (I guess, just generally asia) where you take it and it determines your future. But Teacher and Kai are in a different country. Teacher uses big old syringe to get the smart bacteria or whatever out of Kai.

Turns out bacteria is supposed to make you actually smarter. Batgirl visits Kai in the hospital, ditches him for good, tracks Teacher down, knocks vial out of her hand, it transforms her or makes her stronger, I don't know. 

The Opinion:

I just do not care about this story, at all. When this issue reveals just what that bacteria was, the entire plot just seemed so petty. It's something that makes you smarter, but it's dangerous. Whatever. This story is just unremarkable in every way. Feels like a forgettable filler arc between major creative teams. That's what I think my biggest problem with this book is so far, it's just unmemorable. Hope Larson unfortunately hasn't done anything to make this book hers, it just feels like a a half-hearted continuation of what came before her time on the title, and instead of using Rebirth to possibly embrace what was lost in the New 52, it made the mistake of isolating the title further by taking her out of Gotham. I want to like Batgirl, but I'm quickly finding myself on a firm "whatever" stance in terms of my interest in it, similar to how I felt prior to the book being reinvigorated by the previous creative team.
