Cassandra Cain: Batgirl again or have her own hero identity?

#1 Posted by Sinestro2828 (1511 posts) - - Show Bio

If Cassandra Cain returns should she retake her mantle as Batgirl away from Stephanie Brown or should she think up her own superhero identity as Dick Grayson did when he quit being Robin and became Nightwing?  Personally I'd like to see her as Batgirl again because she seems so much more badass and spooky than Steph Brown, who looks more cute than impressive (I mean, Cass beat up Supergirl and Ravager, that makes her one of DC's biggest badasses). 
 
Also, can anyone tell me how old Cassandra is?  Like is she as old as Steph or younger/older?

I would hope they create a new character for her to play, a new type of hero to join the bat family. Babs posted about a possible ongoing here  
 
I believe she is about 19 years old, Steph is around the same age.

@Sinestro2828:
i'd like to see her as nightwing

@Jor-el Zod:   I think she'd be a kickass Nightwing as well, though I'm almost certain Dick would FLIP OUT over her taking his old mantle since apparently they don't like eachother one bit based on my reading...On the otherhand if she proves herself worthy & Dick remains as Batman then perhaps it could work out afterall.

@Jor-el Zod: This could be pretty interesting :P
 
But I'm "smelling" two Batgirls, helping alongside the 2 Batmen and Robins... You heard it here first!

Personally I see her forming an her spec ops team sort of like silver Sable's wild pack. And as in interesting (but disturbing...yeah I know ) twist using spoiler's alias.

How about Stephanie actually dies like she should of 15 years ago when her character became irrelevant and Cass gets the mantle only she is fit to bear

Didn't she go by something else when she was a member of Justice League Elite. Maybe she  could do that again. I'd love to see her as Nightwing but yeah multiple Batgirls would be cool too.

New identity

#12 Posted by 123422 (1013 posts) - - Show Bio

2 Batgirls and 2 Batmans seems a bit overkill, might be better if she gets a new name

i'd love to see cass as anyone, but more preferably batgirl.

Yeah, we can have 2 Batman squads:  
     Alpha Squad (Global) - Bruce, Tim, Cass
     Beta Squad (Local) - Dick, Damien, Steph
 
As for the identity crises, I'd say no for Nightwing (still hoping Dick comes to his senses and goes back to his old identity; one can only wish), but I'd be ok for a new identity if it is something cool, and fresh, and she is not EVIL.  I miss her as batgirl though.  She was so badass.

@frogjitsu: This would be perfect! I'd love that!
 
I have a small problem accepting Dick back to simply plain old Nightwing. It needs a little adjustment, some evolution.
I couldn't imagine him being back to solo Nightwing with no cape and all while he became such a leader lately, with his own sidekick and all.

I think she should be killed off, I'm not to fond of her

@Eyz:   I say screw the cape, and the sidekick.  Damian's annoying and he doesn't need the cape.

@frogjitsu:
But a cape, in the DCU = respect, big lead character and more mature persona.
Even Booster Gold used to put on a cape whenever he had speeches in public or important apparitions.

It seems pretty clear that it's Stephanie's identity now.  Anyway, Bruce is the one who told Cassandra to give the mantle to Stephanie

This is incorrect. Cassandra walked away from the mantle after Bruce's supposed death.

not true; it was in the Road Home: Batgirl that Bruce said he told Cassandra to give up the mantle
 
not only this, but it's revealed that Bruce knows where she is

I think she should have her own identity, but her old costume's too cool.

#30 Posted by saiyan_earthling (5441 posts) - - Show Bio

It'd be awesome to see her get back into being Batgirl, but she's fine where she's at for now. We'll see soon.

she should go back to being batgirl. she was the coolest batgirl and she had the best costume!
