I finally got around to reading, "Death in the Family." The famous Batman arc in which fans were able to call in and vote on the fate of Jason Todd (Robin at the time). To no ones surprise he got the thumbs down and thus the Joker's most famous kill became legend. However, as cool as that was, there was another small yet interesting storyline that had me acting like a fanboy. The search for Jason Todd's biological mother. Which had been narrowed down to three women, one of them being my favorite character, Lady Shiva. Say what? Could it be? I mean Jason Todd is pretty badass right? And in my opinion being the son of Sandra Woosan would add another dimension to his character. Sadly, as those of you who have read the arc know, it was not to be. She toys with Batman and Robin for a bit before she's defeated and injected with truth serum. She admits to having no children. Oh but wait, no children? What about Cassandra Cain? Is it possible that Shiva beat the truth serum and played Batman and Robin? It would be cool but more likely the DCU overlooked this fact when they created Cassandra Cain. So here's my question to you, the fans. Would you like to see the DCU flip the script and announce that Shiva is in fact Jason Todd's mother? Think of the possibilities. David Cain, Lady Shiva, Cassanda Cain, and Jason Todd vs Nightwing, Batman (bruce wayne), Damian, and Tim Drake. They would be the most serious characters in Batman's rogue gallery, they even have ties to Ras and his League of Assassin. I'd rather read something like that then Spoiler becoming Batgirl.
Lady Shiva Jason Todd's Mother?
