Fuck you, DC. Cass was Batgirl, too. I don't know or care *who* is the new person in the Batgirl suit. Maybe she's Babs. Maybe she's somebody else. Maybe she's somebody else I'll come to like like whoa. That's not the point.

The point, DC, is this: You drove Cass OOC. Then you made her kill. Then you made her bugfuck-insane-crazy OOC. And then you made a character say, with all the metatextual trappings of a "Look, in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane!," that he didn't see the "quiet, mopey one," that "the real Batgirl was back."

That's not how it works, DC. You don't get to *erase* somebody like that and then tell us that you are about *icons* and *legends*. Outside the trinity, you couldn't recognize iconic if it bit you in the ass.

I swear, there are months when fanfic is the only reason why I care about what DC is doing.

I was just reacting to the posted scans of BoP #97.

Yeah.

I'd be more upset (and, believe, I'm holding back the post), but right now (in my mind) I've got Cass in my her Boss's office asking of Waynetech has some kind of Power Bra that'll make her more popular.

"Need bigger boobs."

"Well, you do have a lot of fanboys."

"No! Not those. These."

"I'm suddenly very uncomfortable by this whole situation. I think I hear floor seven calling."

"Not now. Show me how to shop online."

"*sob*"

Now, *that* makes me happy, too. Thanks for sharing :).

Got one more thing...

The last panel says it all.

*craves*

If Cass ends up as the unoffical patron saint of IT staff everywhere... I'm *so* OK with that.

Amen.

It's a Batgirl *thing*, man. And you don't call Cass "the former Batgirl," either; you can't even manage to make a reasonable transition to the bad side. She's Batgirl, Steph's Robin, etc.

And Cass being Batgirl doesn't make Babs *less* Batgirl, either, which you appear not to get.

Yeah. What's with "the real X"? Don't they get that mythical names, by their very nature, can be held by more than one person? Somebody isn't less of a "King/Queen of England" because somebody else used to be!

Man, I know, like, *nothing* about Cass. Sacrilege, right? I've never found my way into the Batman corner of DC comics, but now you've got me hooked. Do you have any issue recs or something? I'd like to know about her, especially since it seems timely (Huge Birds of Prey fan here). :)

Here is a list with a few resources on Cass; they also include issue recs, I think. I got them while prep for doing the psych_30 challenge with Cass.

Cass is a rare character, original but unevenly written... and I love her to pieces. *g*

I had a dream last night that it was all a big misunderstanding, and then Cass and Bruce had sex in the stables. Tim was worried Cass would cut off a horses head and put it in his bed. Twas quite funny.

OMG Tell me that there is/will be fic on that. *Please*. Why don't I ever get the cool dreams involving Cass/Bruce sex?

I suck at writing fanfic but someone should write Bruce/Cass because it's hot.

These days, I'm all about $1.99 Image comics. Marvel angers me, DC depresses me - mostly because of Abomination!Cass.

Yeah. I don't know if it was always this way, but a lot of the really good stuff seems to be outside, or at least not very deep into, the Big Two universes.

As of the last time I looked, Cass was:

A. Insane.
B. Murderous.
C. Chatty.
D. Attempting to kill her father with a gun.
E. Leading the League of Assassins.
F. Trying to convince Tim to ditch Batman and work with her.
G. All of the above.

(Hint: G)
