Barbara Gordon to walk?

Take a look at this solicitation for Booster Gold #5:

" '52 Pick-Up' continues! Booster Gold has been tasked with preventing the origins of the world's greatest heroes from unraveling. Next up is his greatest challenge yet: preventing one of the most horrific wrongs that's ever befallen a hero in the DC Universe.
Leaping into the pages of BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, Booster attempts to stop a tragedy that he discovers never should've happened — the Joker shooting and paralyzing Barbara Gordon, Batgirl.
Plus, what dark secret is Rip Hunter keeping from Booster?
On sale December 12 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US "

I am loving Booster Gold's title, and think it has enormous promise, but I don't think it should be used as DC's new way to Retcon things. I am hoping that this "wrong" doesn't get fixed, or else we're going to be seeing plenty of things that happened suddenly be tabbed as "wrongs" -- and it doesn't help my paranoia that Geoff Johns is exactly the guy DC would trust to reshape their Universe.
