    Default Cassandra Cain (Batgirl, Black Bat) Appreciation

    Finishing the trifecta of Red, Purple, and Black.

    Our girl's still MIA, but we've got that Hing Kong issue of Eternal coming up. If the guys in charge of that book have been given any leeway, we could have at least some kind of sideways reference to Cass.

    Also, I want to start off with one of my favorite pictures, featuring two of my favorite characters.

    Dude. You just made my day. Those two are my favorite heroes also. I miss Cass Cain. Heck I miss when they were dating (though short it was..)

    Cassandra Cain is my favorite heroine ever!

    For those who don't know my girl:



    General
    Cassandra Cain’s stats are given.

    Strength

    She kicks a hole through a brick wall.
    http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p...girl002-15.jpg

    Easily beats down a metahuman strong enough to casually punch through walls and bust through train cars.

    Beats a metahuman around with enough force to leave dents in a brick wall.

    After a few kicks, she breaks through three-inch quartz, taking out multiple SWAT members in the process.

    During a training session, she shatters multiple wooden (presumably) dummies with ease.

    While fighting Shiva, she breaks through brick structures.

    Batman instructs Batgirl to KO a superhuman (should he wake up) with enough force to destroy a normal skull, which she does with ease.

    Without looking, she backfists someone with enough force to flip them over backwards.
    http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p...35kebbin10.jpg

    She KO's a large telepathic monster with one punch.
    http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p...41kebbin19.jpg

    In training, with a flip kick, she used enough force to make Onyx fly several meters and break a sofa in half.

    I recently listened to the audiobook version of Greg Rucka's novelization of No Man's Land and it reminded me (not that I really needed it) of just how much I love Cassie and miss her.

    Amazing audiobook, by the way. Get it.

    Today I picked up Scott Snyder's Gates of Gotham, and I like her interactions with Tim and Damian.

    Your amazing list of Cass pics aren't working for me, both FF and Chrome yield redirect errors, IE failed too. Is everyone else able to load them? Maybe it's my setup.

    Can't wait for Cass to return! Such a rich, interesting character in addition to being a total rump kicker.

    I love Cass and think it's a crime that she's been so neglected for so long.

    Hopefully Stephanie Brown's triumphant return heralds her return in the near future as well.
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    My latest acquisition from C2E2 (and ironically ended the previous thread with) from Peter V. Nguyen:

    I bought that issue when it first came out. Looking back, I seem to recall wondering just how Cassandra did that. Right now, my best guess is that at the subconscious level Kon-El's "tactile telekinesis" ability knew he didn't see "this smoking hot Batgirl chick" as a deadly threat, and he secretly wanted her to touch him, so when she started to slap him on the face, his usually-automatically-activated telekinetic force field just (figuratively) stuck its hands in its pockets and whistled a nonchalant tune, saying to itself: "Nope, there's nothing I need to be doing right now -- I'll just mind my own business and let these two crazy kids work it out among themselves!"

    On the other hand, I always hated the ideas of "David Cain is her father and Lady Shiva is her mother." This would be a great time to flush it down the toilet and forget it for good!

    Shiva has/had a sister. How about her and Cain as Cass's parents?

    I think I've seen that idea come up before. It would be slightly less awful, from my point of view (which is not quite the same thing as "strikes me as a good idea").

    Let me clarify my thinking: The basic premise of Cassandra's origin story, in her first couple of years onstage in DC's comics (around 1999 and 2000), was this: "She was the subject of a psychological experiment to see if a baby girl who was never exposed to spoken language in her formative years could instead be taught to use all the language-and-speech portions of her brain to study human 'body language' instead, thereby becoming almost telepathic in her ability to know what you were going to do next. Train her in unarmed combat and in various weapons, and she'd have the makings of an unstoppable assassin."

    Her genes were supposed to be irrelevant to the outcome of that approach to raising a "perfect killer from scratch." I don't like the idea that her status as "one of the finest martial artists in the world" was influenced by her inheriting the superior reflexes, coordination, etc., of two of the deadliest non-superpowered killers in the world: Cain and Shiva. Even having her just be the daughter of one of them, and the niece of the other, would be no great improvement. I prefer the original implications of "it's not the heredity; it's all about the extremely unusual childhood environment!" If she had a huge genetic "head start," that invalidates the whole point of a purely psychological experiment.

    so I heard a rumor that both Batgirl and Spoiler will make an appearance in Arkham Knight. We already know that Spoiler is Steph and Oracle is Babs so does that mean Batgirl will be Cass?

    I really hope this is more than a rumor, Cass is by far my favorite Batgirl/Black Bat/ninja badass
