EXCLUSIVE: Batgirl #37 Preview Powers-Up a Classic Batman Foe

Created by Bill Finger, Dick Sprang and Lew Schwartz, Killer Moth is one of the older enemies of the Caped Crusader still kicking around DC Comics, having first appeared in 1951's Batman #63. Initially having no powers, the villain has never posed the gravest of threats, though he's definitely had his moments. However, the villain, now Drury Walker, got an upgrade in the '90s that made him a lot more formidable. Batgirl #37 has now given him another power boost.

Written by Cecil Castellucci and illustrated by Carmine Di Giandomenico, Paul Pelletier and Jordie Bellaire, Batgirl #37 reveals Killer Moth now has kinetic energy armor capable of powering his gun, which forces Barbara Gordon to reevaluate just what kind of threat the normally easy-to-defeat villain might actually pose.
