Cassandra Cain fans treat her like a Mary Sue.

Given the complete devaluation of that term, that just means you don't like her. I'm sure that we're all deeply moved by your opinion.

Deeply moved enough to respond to it.

And it's because of her fan base that I don't like her.

Wow, that's novel. "A large number of people like her quite a bit, so she sucks!" I'm eagerly anticipating the inevitable Nazi comparison that demonstates beyond any possible depth your utter shallowness.

Well no, it's more like a small amount of people like some imaginary fan reconstruction of her character that has been raised up on a gargantuan pedestal and then encased in a dome to prevent any and all character development from reaching her.

Fan reconstruction? O_O wait...are you talking about the fancomic. I don't think anyone believes ebot's Cass is a Cass Can in character. His is just a commentary type thing.

Ignore theanswer. He/she/it/they is Scans Daily's biggest troll right now.

Yes, wanting a character's history and personality to be considered and respected is exactly the same as wanting her to be perfect, and wanting characters who saw her as family to be seen giving a damn is the same as wanting her to be adored by everyone.

Cass had a lot of development in her own title. The difference is that it was organic, thoughtful, and sensible.
