Cass, the good Batgirl. Barbara wasn't interesting until she was put in a wheelchair.
I don't think Babs was ever an uninteresting character, but I think as Oracle in a wheelchair she can give more appeal to the general audience then she would as vigilante Batgirl. Cass also brings in ethnicity.
Barbara Gordon would be the easiest to translate to the big screen. If Cassandra Cain were to be in live action, her character would need to be different from the 'martial-arts-powerhouse-who-can-beat-anything-but-is-a-mute' because I don't feel as though those characteristics would work well on film.
Cassandra was awesome, and I think the most realistic but with that said I think she was also great as her own character Black Bat. Keep Barbara as Batgirl, why have one or the other?
There is no way she is the most realistic of the Batgirls, that honor belongs to Stephanie Brown.
