Deadly, elegant, and complicated, Lady Shiva may very well be the greatest assassin in the DCU. She is the mother of Cassandra Cain, grand daughter of the legendary O'Sensei, and former member of the League of Assassins. Here are some of my favorite Lady Shiva moments.
- Unarmed and caught by surprise, Lady Shiva kills twenty ninjas with one shot each.
- Learns a Dozen New Styles a Year.
- After a Great War with Conner Hawke Shiva proves to be his superior. But my favorite part comes at the end when Lady Shiva displays her somewhat unorthodox code of honor. Owing a life debt to Robin, she honors it by sparing her defeated foe.
- According to Batman, Lady Shiva is a Master of ALL fighting forms
- Pre-Crisis Shiva was introduced in the original Richard Dragon series. She was often depicted as his equal.
- During the Blackest Night arc Lady Shiva makes an appearance just to test her skills against a Black Lantern, Vic Sage.
I'll add more as time goes on.
