Addendum to last post...

Related to my previous post, what I'd really like to see them do with Cassandra is to make her into the modern version of Richard Dragon.

Just, you know, the go-to person for badass martial arts.

There's so much you could do with it. You could go the Ronin/Errant Knight route. You could go espionage. You could go more black ops/A-Team type stuff (that's honestly where I'd hoped they'd take her after Batgirl #72, before they brought her back OYL.) She could appear out of nowhere in any book, in any plot, in disguise or what-not, and aid in some much welcomed ass-kickery.

Picture it: Green Arrow's in like China. Or Brazil. Some place cool like that and gets into a fight. And then suddenly, the old woman in the corner throws off her hat and it's Cassandra Cain! She'd be there for her own reasons of course, and Green Arrow could decide to help or not. But either way, awesome fight scenes commence!

She could be DC's answer to Daughters of the Dragon. She wouldn't even need a codename. She could just be "Cain." It's snappy. And could totally be used for Kung-Fu/Kung-Fu the Legend Continues type homages.

I'd read it.

    Dude... You win. You just figured out how to leave Steph as Batgirl and satisfy me.

    But she'd have to have her own series, and show up in EVERYBODY'S book at least once for a while. Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Superman... Do the Kung Fu TV series thing, establish her as a DC UNIVERSE character rather than a Batcharacter before she ever shows up in the Batbooks again so that she can get her own independent brand.

    Make her bigger than Batgirl, and make it last.

    I could see that work out great for her^^
    She already was an expert, so her reputation could grow as Lady Shiva. (but good, ya know!)

    That's a pretty darned good idea! She's already off doing something undercover for Batman (I think), so it would work perfectly.

    Another idea, one I'm sure DC is in the middle of not doing:

    Send her to the 31st century and have her become the next Karate Kid.

    Well, I'd like it.

    That outfit Marcus To drew her wearing in a recent Red Robin issue was pretty cool. Give Cass a comparable creative team and I would buy it in a microsecond.
