Well, after that brief period of good writing I've returned to deliver you nothing but PAIN and SUFFERING. I present to you.. the first part of the Batgirl mini written by Adam Beechen!!
Cass then interrogates a poor thug into revealing the name of their employer, "Armand Lester" (some alias of David Cain's). Meanwhile:
Cass tries sneaking around the Batcave to use the Bat-computer, only for Dick to interrupt her because he thinks she's up to something EVIL. He won't even let Cass explain herself because of her EVIL intentions. Okay, why is Dick acting like a dick when he stuck his neck out for Ravager?
Anyway, Batman and Robin (Tim) stop Nightwing and explain to him the entire villainous career of Cass. Why yes folks I give you once more.. the WALL OF EXPOSITION:
So many.. words. TO MUCH! It's too much for a normal human being to withstand! *falls over then claws his way back up* Somewhere amongst all that text Cass gets a list of places "Armand Lester" owns. We get a key insight into her mindset at the moment:
#1 ends with Cass finding a room with some of her "sisters" murdered by another "sister".
We then get the origin of Cass's long lost "sister". She was pretty much trained like Cass save for she got a mind of her own early on and decided to kill Poppa Cain the first and best chance she could. The fight continues as we get these sprinkles of her origin.
And with that move Cass has her long enough to reason that they're after the same pair. For now they decide to part ways but meet back later to continue their hunt. It's then Cass notices the blood on the back of her head isn't her own. She returns to the Bat-Cave to use the computer:
Cass then gets a new lead. Oh and yes I'm skipping all the stuff with her "love interest" in this story. It's pointless other than to further cement Cass being able to read and speak better. Yeah also if you didn't get the hints already Beechen appeared to think this was going to be the start of an ongoing. But unlike Batman Beyond this utterly bombed.
So anyway Cass meets back at the same place she met her "sister" earlier.
Their captor happens to be Ravager also looking to kill her daddy.
While the three gals discuss daddy killing they're interrupted by a squad of steroid enhanced daughters of Cain amongst that:
Wow Dick, way to be a dick. As for the fight:
We learn soon after Marque has a Mr. Zsaaz thing going on marking every kill she takes by her arm. The three trace the one daughter who escaped the fight from before to a training center. The three got the element of surprise right? Um...
So there's the first three issues of the Cass mini. Next-up Cass and Rose vs. Slade, the complete ruin of David Cain, daughter vs. father, and Cassandra Wayne? Still I did promise someone a scan of the trade. So here it is!
